The Flying Waffle (Children's Book Review And Giveaway)

As you know, Lil Man and I read A LOT. And we are always looking for new books. Most books that we have read have been paper or hardcover books that he can hold. But The Flying Waffle  is an electronic book that I put on my Kindle. I wasn't really sure how Lil Man would respond to that, but he loved it. He actually found it easier to 'turn the pages' than a regular book. And it didn't take him long to find his favorite page. 

This book is about Candy Carrot, Sir Cob the Corn, and Pea-Z the Sweet Pea. My son calls it the "canny cawot' book. And we have read it numerous numerous times. Since he eats a waffle most mornings, he was very familiar with waffles. And this book grabbed his attention quickly. 
It's a cute whimsical book using vegetables as main characters. As a bonus, the book also contains a waffle recipe. I felt that it was just the right length to keep my son's attention, but long enough to actually tell a story. I find that with a lot of children's books that they don't really say anything? Do you ever find that? I mean, I'll read a book to Lil Man and think, "Well that didn't make any sense at all." I didn't get that impression from this book. 

And I would like to give you a chance to win your own copy. However, please note before you enter, that the author (Tisha Agarwalhas requested that if you win the free book that you please provide her with feedback. I think that's easy enough, don't you?

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
