Yet Another Travel Pillow

This is interesting, and with a much better price point than the bullrest (at least for this kickstarter campaign), I feel like I would prefer the Ostrich Pillow Go. But don’t take my word for it, take a look for yourself. My favorite feature is that it shrinks down for storage.

Awesome Apps for Kids: Sago Mini Boats

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all getting settled back into your school year. Our kids start school next week. I wanted to take a minute to let you know that Boats by Sago Mini is free right now. I have no idea how long it will be free, so go snap it up while you can. My son has watched the preview video for this game at least a hundred times, so he is going to be elated when notices it on the iPad whenever he plays on it next.

Remember that when Apps are free, now instead of free they say, “Get.”

Happy travels,


Wings for Autism

Jet Blue has been providing opportunities for families that have children with Autism to go through a simulated flight experience so that they can be better prepared for future air travel. Things like this just make my day, so I wanted to pass it on to you.

To read about “Wings for Autism” please check out this article from Autism Speaks.

Happy travels,

Sago Mini Doodlecast – Free This Weekend!

Sago Mini Doodlecast

This fun game combines drawing and music, and even has a playback that lets you see the process you used to draw your picture from start until finish. My kids have enjoyed this game for several months and this weekend you can find it free here. I would gage the age on this game from 2 to 6.

Happy travels!!

World’s Toughest Job – MOM

I just saw this video today. I’m a little behind on what is going on in internet land because we are repainting our flat, and with three small kids underfoot, you can imagine how much a of a challenge that is.

First of all, it is an amazing marketing strategy for selling Mother’s Day cards! Secondly, I wish they would have mentioned that many times you are not even allowed to go the bathroom alone. That would have gotten some interesting reactions!

Did the video make me cry a little? Yes, ok. I’m only human after all. And to be honest, I have no ideas for Mother’s Day this year. Sometimes I think that moms with tiny children should get a pass on Mother’s Day, because usually I am planning my own mother and mother-in-law’s presents in the midst of trying to be a sane mother of three and it can be overwhelming. Am I a terrible daughter for saying that? I feel like mothers of adults remember what it was like when their kids were tiny and all encompassing. For the last few years, all I wanted on Mother’s Day was to sleep in! That is pretty much the only gift I want on Mother’s Day and on my birthday.

Moms out there, you do have a tough job! I just want you to know that I appreciate you and I am right there with you.

Moms Unite!!! (In sleeping in on Mother’s Day hopefully)
