We are finally settled- okay in full disclosure we are moved and all the boxes on the main floor and bedrooms are unpacked. To some they would say we are doing good but to this girl I wish it was done but I am being patient (or trying to be) and realizing my body won’t allow me to do all I want and on top of that moving with 4 kids one of which is officially walking and in to EVERYTHING so things take a lot longer and lots of things require me to wait till little people are sleeping to get things really organized. Our play room is still not ready which has been hard for the kids because before we moved I made them pick a few toys each that they got to keep “out” from the rest of the playroom that got packed up and is still in boxes for them to play with but as I am sure you are aware those toys got old fast thankfully a few days before we moved (literally 2 days before) a package from Red Planet Group showed up with literally the most amazing goodies for the kids so I tucked it away until we were moved and about the 3 day we were in the new house I brought out the box and it was like Christmas for them. I let them each pick out something new and put it away for another couple days and than brought it out again and did the same thing. Honestly can’t say THANK YOU enough to Red Planet Group – this felt like the biggest mom win and I didn’t do anything! I wanted to share with you guys some of our favourites from the package because I am nice like that and because I know summer is coming (like so soon) and with that comes days when a new little something for the little people can come in handy wether its to keep them entertained or its a well earned reward for doing some chores, graduation gift or even a birthday gift (our two girls have summer birthdays plus friend birthday parties as well which means gifts gifts gifts!) In no particular order because we love them all…

Scruff-A-Luvs: Okay I’ll be honest the packaging was cute little box but once they opened them I was like okay these look worn and old an not as cute as the box shows BUT once you give the sweet little pups a warm bath and good wash and brush and than blow dry them they are fluffy and cute and my girls have been sleeping with them and my youngest brings hers along everywhere with her. In the box also comes an adoption certificate and a name tag and collar, bow and brush. To purchase one for your self check out Toys R Us, Walmart and Canadian Tire

Boxy Girls: Posh, cute and high end each girl is special in their own way. These super cute little dolls and small enough to carry around with you but big enough to be safe around baby and fun to play with. They come with the most fun accessories (like even I legit had fun styling the dolls) which include jewelry, makeup shoes, bags – basically all the things every girl needs! (Am I right or am I right!?) Each doll comes with 6 different boxes to unwrap but on top of that you can purchase Fashion Packs which essentially are more clothes and accessories for your doll because we girls like to have options and so do the dolls! Boxy Girls are sold at Walmart and Toys R Us

Bananas: No no the fruit although they are the same shape these cute brightly coloured bananas are not edible but are super yummy smelling (no they don’t smell like bananas) fun bright bold colours are sold in a a group of 3 – in like a bunch – you know how you find real bananas. These bananas can be linked together to stay in the bunch or can be taken apart and played with individually. Inside each banana when you “peel” it open inside is an adorable collectible “crushie” characters and accessories! There are 24 adorable “crushie” characters to collect and there are even ultra-rare and limited edition crushies. The bananas come with vines that reseal so you can display them and take them everywhere with you. One banana includes: collectible character, 2 cute mini friends, gem stones, collector’s guide, character sticker, and hanging vine. Bananas are sold at Toys R Us, Walmart and Indigo

Gear Head: this new line of collectible vehicles is putting a different “spin” on things! When you open your box you will find a little red “tool kit” that will include a die cast metal tool that you will use to release your wheel and rim from inside your “wood” crate and once you have it open you will discover which mystery vehicle you will be playing with. These toys are so neat that even Dad had to get in to play and see how far he could launch his vehicle by simply turning the key. One of my favourite features is that it is easy to keep tidy because all the pieces – tools and vehicle can be store in the crate! To purchase some Gear Head you will find it at Toys R Us.

  • On days I have a flare up getting up and out of bed is hard enough much less take care of my 4 sweet kiddos ... so thankful today for this sweet girls snuggles and an amazing husband who takes care of all the things I can’t on days like today ... you’re the mvp @tspinksy
  • I’m not here to get political but just to say we are thankful for the amazing teachers we have in our lives! My kiddos were asking questions about the strike yesterday and so in an age appropriate way I explained what I could to them and Gray quietly escaped and came back some time later with this sign she had made and asked to join her teacher today walking the picket line with her sign (and her little sister followed suit) ... we can differ on what side of this political issue we stand but I will say some of the BEST people I know are teachers and they love their students and want to provide the safest and most positive environment for their students to learn! I couldn’t do their job but I am thankful for them and their love for my kiddos because let’s face it, a teacher who doesn’t make school a fun, safe and loving environment will produce children who don’t love and enjoy school and therefore lack a desire to learn! Thank you to @barrett.kim  @melissa_a_stark @heidi_sawatzky  Kristy Patton Tricia Orchard Melissa Marshall Stephanie Hodgson for all you do day in and day out on the day’s even when it’s hard you show up and do the best you can! I’ll admit we feel like we’ve been spoiled with each of you playing a role my babies lives we are blessed to know each of you!
  • Because calories don’t count on your birthday ... and one is an apple so it’s healthy 😉
  • What if you woke up tomorrow and knew it was your last day? What would you do? Who would you call? What would you say?  It shouldn’t take a tragedy for each of us to be reminded what a gift each day is - it’s not promised to us it’s not earned or deserved it’s a gift but how we spend our time with who we spend it with is our choice. Reevaluate what and who is important ... say I love you more, forgive quickly and live life to the fullest!
  • Needed coffee but was sweating after my little incident (see stories) so went to my trusty summer coffee order - it was delish even if it was freezing cold outside!
  • He really wanted a picture with me #not 😂 after a busy weekend we had a few slow minutes while the big kids played outside he watched football and I got my snuggles! Going to bed feeling blessed and ready to take on the new week!👊🏻💪🏻
