Spread the Love

SPREAD-THE-LOVE

 

Most of our days are spent out and about- honestly with a toddler and preschooler it is a NECESSITY. We are incredibly lucky to be able to be outside every day of the year here in sunny Arizona.  Unfortunately, some of those days are 120 degrees, but sprinklers can be run and baby pools filled up with ice.  PLUS am I ever excited about our Slip & Slide.

One of the places that we spend a lot of our time is our local Rec Center.  Tumbleweed Rec Center is an incredible source of free and cheap entertainment, kids activities, and health fairs.  Huggies has let us nominate a community project in our area with their #UltraHug Campaign on Social Media. Tumbleweed Rec Center could sure use the extra $2,000.

When Raymond was little we attended a fabulous Health Fair and were able to score a FREE bike helmet for our little tike.  That was two years ago and due to budget cuts they have not been able to Spread the Love recently.

I am ALL about Bike Safety and am a huge advocate for practicing what you preach.  Seeing as if you follow me on Instagram you will find that ALL of us wear Bike Helmets when we ride.  Helmet hair is much cooler than head trauma.  All day, every day.

Now that Emma Marie is starting to ride the balance bike we are glad that she willingly obliges us with putting her helmet on, every time.  Being a good example helps.  When EVERYONE else is doing it? Much better.  In the eye’s of a stubborn toddler that can be the difference between smooth sailing and a complete meltdown. I would love nothing more than for other families to be able to ensure that their kids are covered.  I will definitely be posting on Twitter AND Instagram about Tumbleweed for the #UltraHug Campaign.

Helmets Save.

Spread the Love with YOUR Community

As kids, nothing beats spending a day in the sun. The playground was your castle, the ocean was a monster trying to swallow you up, and hiking with your family made you feel like a great explorer.

What places in your community do you look back on with nostalgia? Or, what places do you and your family currently enjoy hanging out just appreciating each other’s company?

As they say, “The best things in life are free,” and this applies to many of our local parks, playgrounds, beaches, and rec-centers. These places bring us so much joy, and now it’s time to give back with Huggies!

Helpful Hints

You can check out for yourself how these diapers are essential for our Top FIVE Bedtime Tips and Tricks with a Baby & Toddler.  Seriously, life-changing.  I treasure my sleep.  And SLEEP is essential for my sanity.  I think most parents would agree with that assessment.  We also are THOSE people that have a successful nighttime routine that we’ve had in place now for YEARS.  Goodness did my mom heart just skip a beat.  We’ve been parents for close to four years.

 

Time is no parent’s friend.
