WHAT WE’RE READING, HEARING, PLAYING, DANCING TO AND EVEN SMELLING RIGHT NOW (FOR KIDS & MOMS!)

“Sniff,” Goodbye August.
Here’s a list of the good stuff we’ve been loving this month with a fab. giveaway at the end

DK Workbooks
It’s not easy teaching a Pre-K’er left from right, East vs. West, and map reading in general. Miss P. and I spent many an early morning hour on this book. *Cough*I may have even learned a thing or two myself…

Blaze & The Monster Machines
I know, TV, gasp the horror I need to find a pre-dinner TV show that works for both my daughter and son.  This new(ish) show on Nick, Jr. is perfect.  It has a special focus on friendship, honesty and STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math.) No joke, my 4 year old talked about trajectory and magnetism the other day. Like, she actually used those words in a coherant sentence.  Thanks, Blaze.

Mod Mobiles
Switch ’em, swap ’em, shift ’em, race ’em…with no snapping, clicking or latching. A puzzle AND a mobile car in one, The D Man can’t get enough of these well made toys.

Alphabuild by Kido
My number one favorite toy for kids are MagnaTiles.  We are loving this next generation of magnetized blocks by Kido that snap together to form upper case letters (and more.)

You must listen to the Kidz Bop station on Pandora, no? Many a dance party has started in our house thanks to this adorable musical group.  The Honey Girls by Build A Bear presented their concert in Boston this weekend and gave us amazing seats to Bop along with them.  And aside from making sure The D Man didn’t bop his little bum right over the railing we had a blast! Don’t they look like they could part of the band minus Miss P’s scary cute Hello Kitty face?

PINROSE
UnknownLast week I had the pleasure of meeting girl-boss entrepreneur behind a brand new perfume line launching in Nordstrom stores nationwide.  Take a quiz online (or in-store) and get a scent tailored exactly to your personality.  Brilliant.  Some of my favorites were “Garden Gangster” (for dominating lawn sports), the beach-y Tambourine Dreamer (vacation on Nantucket, anyone?), Moonlight Gypsy (which took me back to burning incense in my room…but in a much more pleasant way), and Merry Maker (bonus – smells like new babies and Motherhood, I swear).  But which scents matched perfectly to my personality? Take the quiz, then simply tell me what you got via a Facebook or Twitter comment.  If we have matching scents, you might just win a free bottle (Retail – $55). Use hashtag #MIMlovesYou and make sure to tag the page so we don’t miss it!
{Psst: my favorite part about taking this quiz is the suggested cocktail that goes with your signature scents.}

Bonus Tip: Did you know smelling coffee beans to try and neutralize your nose is a bunch of well, beans? You should actually just smell your own natural stank to clear your nostrils between smell tests. Thanks for the tequila, laughs, and good “scents”, Christine!
