Harlem Globetrotters Coming to Charlotte March 22nd!!!

In light of The Harlem Globetrotters making their way through Charlotte on March 22nd, I thought I would share this fun coloring sheet! My kids always have a good time at this game and if you want to surprise your family with a fun afternoon outing, why not print off this coloring sheet to surprise them with!?

A fun tip : Print out the coloring sheets and leave them out for your kids – tell them about the game as they see the coloring sheets and have a fun coloring contest while getting the whole family psyched up to watch the Globies play!!

I can help make that even sweeter by a DISCOUNT!

Don’t Go Crazy Traveling for the Holiday’s {Infant/Toddler Travel Tips}

Living 18 hours away from family means sometimes having to pack up the car and head on that dreaded trip no one likes making. Now that we have two young kids, flights can either a.) be way too expensive to even consider flying with a family of four or b.) Not really possible at times like the holiday’s with gifts in tow.

Last year we took a break from holiday travel and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! All of us (kids included) really enjoyed being home cozy in our pj’s, but even though we enjoyed the quiet time in our house for this first time… ever; we missed family. As we get ready to pack up and prep for our drive this year, I thought I’d share some of my best tips in traveling with two kiddos under the age of five and share some great products with you to look into yourselves!

First, let me just say.. there are many products out there that are simply not necessary, but when it comes to embarking on a long trip with kids; you never be too prepared. Some of these awesome products by Prince Lionheart can help keep your organization in check and in turn, mom’s sanity a little less overwhelmed too!

1. babyview mirror by Prince Lionheart. These mirrors can be a lifesaver for mom and dad! It’s recommended your baby stay rear facing until two years old now, so these mirrors can not only be great for safety so mom and dad can keep an eye on baby, but fun play for your child too! I know my kids both loved looking into these mirrors and it helped keep them happy during times when nothing else didn’t work.

2. Daddy Diaper Pack by Daddyscrubs. I really love the Daddyscrubs line anyway, but this Daddy Diaper Pack is perfect for dads! I know my husband never wanted to carry around the diaper bags I bought, and this comes equipped with several neat features like an insulated cooler pocket for snacks! I know with many things, less is more when it comes to packing for young ones, but this pack has it all and is the perfect accessory for travel so you can have everything organized in one place!

3. Prince Lionheart backseat KickMat. Many times, all bets (and rules) are off when your stuck in the car for long rides. These backseat KICKMAT gives your little ones something to kick without doing any harm.. and can help keep the entertainment going rather than constantly screaming at them to stop! (I know I’ve done that before and this kickmat could help eliminate at least a little bit of the travel blues when your kiddos won’t listen and get discouraged in the car.)

4. Travel Bottle Warmer. Has your baby ever started screaming for milk, but an exit or somewhere to stop is nowhere in sight? Snag this on-the-go bottle warmer and keep it handy for times when you’re in a pinch! Keep the drive going AND baby happy.

5. Prince Lionheart Bebe Pod Flex PLUS. This is the perfect seat for travel! Take the Bebe Pod PLUS with you on the go and use as a highchair at a table or on the floor. I know I’m kind of a germ-a-phobe and tend to wipe everything down anyway, but this can easily be thrown in the backseat or trunk and barely take up any space so you have it for easy access while on the road!

6. Squeez’ Ems Reusable Food Pouches. I am OBSESSED with reusable food pouches! And I LOVE Squeez’ Ems, because the lid is attached, so super easy while traveling! I normally pack some pre-made treats, freeze them before we leave then pop the freezer cubes into the pouches to toss in the car. This way I always have an easy and healthy treat to throw at the kids if they want one and with these awesome reusable pouches, it’s so easy to keep everything together without losing any parts!

7. Prince Lionheart back seat ORGANIZER. I am a huge fan of organization and I just get more stressed out when traveling and the car gets messy. I also like the kids to have things to keep them entertained in the backseat, but with a van that has bucket seats, I can’t put together a basket of toys to sit in the middle of them. This back seat organizer from Prince Lionheart is the perfect solution! I can pack cups, crayons, toys, snacks, the works and it hangs right onto the backseat! My four year old can reach it himself or I can easily reach back and grab what they need. This will help keep things organized and some entertainment for the kids at easy access.

8. Prince Lionheart Check Bags. And lastly, if you’re flying this holiday season, you can pick car seat and stroller gate check bags to keep your things labeled and together! All you have to do is slide it into the bag and you’re ready to go. These can help keep your items together and less of a headache once you land.

Altogether, all of these products can help make your trip a little less stressful. I know my best advice as a mom of two little ones who has spent many many long hours traveling over the years, keep everything together We have a van, so things can get tossed around and lost so easily and nothing is more of a pain than losing a pacifier or a sippy cup and not being able to find it when you need it most. Things like the Backseat Organizer can help keep all of that headache to a minimum and your trip a little more enjoyable. Keep fun music on hand and make it an adventure, not a stressful pain spending the whole trip wondering when it will be over!
