Zooni ConFEETi 3D Socks

I received the Zooni ConFEETi 3D Socks for free in exchange for my review.

Now that I have two boys, aged 3 and 1, I usually only buy white socks. Why? Well, because I am awful at losing socks, and I swear there really is a monster in the dryer eating up all the socks. So, to keep it simple, I buy the same type socks in the boring white color.

Now though, after having SO much fun with the Zooni ConFEETi 3D Socks, I had to buy a couple more pairs for the boys. I received one pair free (see the picture of JR wearing them on my main blog) that fit JR, and so I ordered 2 pairs for Little Dude and another pair for JR. The best part? The size is on the sock.

Because even though I solve the missing socks and different sock sizes problem by just sticking with one color, it is still annoying to sort them, since the boys feet are close in size already.

So, with Zonni ConFEETi 3D Socks, the boys get CUTE animals and characters on their feet PLUS I get the skid proof textured bottom that displays the sock size, for easy, quick sorting.

I've also washed them a few times already and they have stayed just as soft and snuggly while the textured bottom has not torn or cracked, which was the one complaint I had with the textured bottom socks you can find at Target or Walmart. (Those seemed to crack or tear after just the first few washes).

Looking for some fun socks as a baby shower gift, or even just as a fun item for your kids to enjoy? Then I highly reccomend the Zooni ConFEETi 3D Socks, and you can buy them here. Who knew kids could enjoy playing with socks? JR is in love with his puppy dog ones, and so am I!

Eating Right Kids

I work part time from home, which is really hard to do with my two little boys. I love my job, and I love that I get to stay home with my sons, but meshing the two together can be a huge juggling act.

Something that will now be making my life easier? Eating Right Kids, a new food line from Safeway and Warner Brothers. Eating Right Kids is a line of affordable, healthy, quick food choices for busy families. What I love? My sons love the fun characters on the packages-can anyone say no to Bugs Bunny?-and by seeing the label, I can trust that the foods are nutritious,healthy, packed with vitamins, and free of harmful additives.

Sounds like I have a new time saver, and I am so happy that my grocery shopping has just gotten a little easier. Now instead of spending time staring at labels, trying to decipher serving sizes, saturated fats, and figure out what the dirxanthexWhatChaMaCallIt additives ARE, I can spend that time doing more important stuff. Like enjoying a fun picnic at the park, chasing the boys around, or even finding some quiet time to myself(I can dream).

Would you like to make sure your kids are Eating Right Kids? Keep an eye out for the Eating Right Kids products coming to grocery stores now.

My kids were able to try the ravioli (made with wheat and veggies), the granola bar (packed with vitamins and low fat/low sugar), all natural 100% juice drink and the fruit cups (in real fruit juice, not syrup) and it all disappeared FAST. There wasn't even any left for me to try! .

But I don't mind, seeing my kids eat every last bit of whole wheat pasta and veggies is enough of a taste test for me and the Eating Right Kids food products will now staples in our pantry.

TRIO Blocks by Fisher Price

My little boys love building with everything and anything they can get their hands on. My downstairs often looks like a construction zone, as towers, tents, tunnels and more are created and in progress constantly.

My husband enjoys the building fun, as well, though my Tupperware was not always as happy. Now though, we can have even more fun, thanks to the new Fisher Price TRIO blocks! TRIO blocks are created with kids aged 3 and up, but they don't have the "baby" feel that younger aged Lego's have.

My son, Little Dude, even decided that the TRIO blocks are for "big boys" while the larger building Lego type blocks we also have have been labeled "baby toys". Can you tell he is in love? Oh he is. He has already pointed out how he NEEDS the Fisher Price TRIO construction set for Christmas...

What is different though about these blocks? They are EASY to snap together and build with AND they are a great shape and size for older children that are still just a little young for Lego's (or any other type small building blocks). TRIO building blocks also come in great packages, like construction, castle, and more, to create fun building adventures.

And unlike duplos or Legos, there are no tiny pieces to lose, and there is a great starter kit that comes with a storage box. Also, when you build with the TRIO blocks, you can create all kinds of things, from robots to towers, cars and planes, and you can get great instructions online or with your set to create an endless amount of creativity.

Little Dude even created a plane all by himself, after a few pointers from the instruction pamphlet.

These are the one blocks that I don't have to snap together or constantly get apart for Little Dude; however, they are also so fun and easy that I enjoy sitting forever and building with the boys! JR, though younger than the age the blocks are designed for (he is 15 months) also enjoys playing while supervised (Kids that might still try to eat the blocks should be supervised; they could choke!)The pieces are easy enough to snap together that JR can also join in the fun, but the blocks are also sturdy enough that he can't completely destroy whatever Little Dude builds with a swat. THAT is nice for mama!

Would you like to get some TRIO blocks for your children? Then enter my contest! Leave a comment telling me what TRIO set you like the best, and you will be entered to win the Fisher Price TRIO starter set with storage box!

The contest ends on September 25th. Have fun building!
