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.

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

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

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days
