One thing that gets smaller on a mom – her technology

I love small things. I do. Crazy about little things. So when HP offered up the new HP Mini 210 and the utterly adorable HP V5040u Camcorder to review, we leaped at the chance to see if they were as fabulous as they looked. The answer: Yes! The purse-sized HP Mini 210 is drool-worthy in colors including Preppy Pink and Pacific Blue.  This is the perfect PC for moms on the go like me, small enough that you can pop it into an average sized purse or even your diaper bag. (Just keep away from leaky sippy cups!)  It...

Do you have a quotable kid? (Of course you do!)

Certainly you have a whole list somewhere of all the funny things your kid has said. My youngest daughter named her stuffed horse Puke Bok, and the oldest has been known to say things like I’m not licking the gingerbread house..I’m just kissing it. If your own kid’s sayings are funny even to people who aren’t reading your blog or your baby book, consider sending it to Kico Kids for their second annual Quotable Kids t-shirt contest.
