Throwback Thursdays: The Smurfs

The Smurfs , one of the best cartoons of all time! Well, one of my favorites at least. I loved this cartoon so much that I tried to convince my mother to name my little sister after Smurfette. That didn't work. She instead convinced me that we could combine Tracy with Smurfette, and that could be the baby's middle name. My sister's middle name became Tracette. (My mommy was so nice. I really believed we made that name up). My favorite Smurfs were Smurfette , Brainy Smurf and Papa Smurf . The show would not have been complete without Gargamel and Gargamel would not have been complete without his cat! I don't remember if the cat had a name. I do remember however, that the Smurfs had their own little Smurf language. I miss that show. I might not have to miss it for too long though. Just like the rest of our old favorites, the Smurfs are making a comeback. Watch out, because in 2011 they're coming out with a Smurf movie! Check it out: The Smurf's Movie Trail

Rude Girl

My 5 year old has turned into a real live Mean Girl. She has spent a good part of summer vacation getting scolded about saying rude things to people. She has been saying things like this: You stink. Leave me alone with your fat behind! You're ugly. Your hair looks a mess. Your breathe stinks. You look all dirty. Get away from me. Ewe don't sit by me, you're nasty! AND MORE! She says these things to other children. So I started saying things like this: Hey! Watch your mouth. You don't talk to people like that! That's rude, you need to apologize, right now. You shouldn't say things like that to people, because it hurts their feelings. You don't want to make people feel bad do you? Saying those things didn't seem to help. Instead, it resulted in scenarios like this: My Daughter : Eeeelll!!! Your breathe stinks. Other person : *looks at her* My Daughter : Did it hurt your feelings when I said your breathe stinks? Other Person : Kind of. My

Throwback Thursdays: Teddy Ruxpin

Teddy Ruxpin, the talking Teddy Bear that included a cassette to put in his back. I thought this bear was amazing when I was little. I got him for Christmas and couldn't wait to put the tape in & watch him talk. He moved his mouth and blinked his eyes as he read you a story. That was one the best Christmas mornings I've ever had! If I remember correctly, it was Christmas of 1986 and our first Christmas in Oklahoma. I looked Teddy Ruxpin up online and they still make him! Check out this site: Teddy Ruxpin Store

Upcoming Review: CSN Stores

Look out for our upcoming review! I will be reviewing a product from CSN Stores. I have not yet decided which product I will review since there is so much to choose from. CSN Stores has 200+ online stores with a variety of items. I'm currently debating whether I should get a beautiful bedroom vanity for my daughter, or Bakeware. I'm thinking the Bakeware would be fun, because the girls really love helping out in kitchen. Just look at these beautiful vanities from CSN Stores: The only reason I might not go with the vanity is because I have my two daughters, plus my step-daughter. I would want them each to have their own, or have to get one big enough for them to share. Either way, this should be exciting, so check back later for the review!
