Pinatas And Parties - Such fun!

"Wow, that was fast!” was what I was thinking when I opened my front door and found that my Birthday In a Box had been delivered. I waited until Lil Man wasn't looking, and then I stashed the box in the basement before he could see it. I was excited to see what was inside, but I had to wait until nap time. I didn't want him to get a glimpse of it until we had it all set up and ready for him.  

Finally, I was able to take a peek. And I was not disappointed. My box contained a Cookie Monster Pinata  with 3lbs of candy. And I'm talking the good stuff - warheads, lemon drops, blow pops, sweeties and the list goes on and on. I admit that Hubby and I indulged a little (ok, maybe a lot) in the candy before it ever made it in the pinata. 

wasn't sure how Lil Man would react to the pinata. He’d never been at a party where there was one. So I wasn't sure what his reaction would be. Since he’s only 2, we decided that blindfolds wouldn't be necessary.

His eyes got big when he saw Cookie Monster. I got Lil Man's toy bat, and Hubby put the pinata in the tree. I thought we'd have to 'show' him what to do. It wasn't necessary. Apparently, if you hang something eye level in front of a toddler, and give him a bat, he will know he's supposed to hit it. And hit he did. 

I'm not sure who enjoyed it more - me or Lil Man. The neighbors probably thought I was crazy as I squealed with him because he was so excited.

He was more than ready to get started

Didn't take him long to figure out what to do

Let the Fun begin!


What a fun fun day we had! Lil Man was more than thrilled. And Hubby and I couldn't help but share in his excitement. 

I would definitely use BirthdayInABox for my next party. Both the delivery time and product were exceptional. 

Full Disclosure: BirthdayInABox provided me with a pinata free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
