Teddy's Top 10 Achievements of 2013


1. Understand basic geography
Last year we bought for Teddy big 96 pieces world map floor puzzle. He started learning that there are different places in the word. We showed him places we visited and where our relatives and friends live. This year we got Teddy a globe and he can apply all his knowledge now. He was impressed with amount of water on the Earth and likes New Zealand and Madagascar. He also likes telling everyone that Penguins live in Antarctica and Polar Bears in Arctic.

Teddy in Paris

2. Visited Paris and Montreal and became acquainted with French culture
In 2013 we visited two world francophone centers Paris and Montreal. Teddy cherishes memories from those trips and often watches videos with our activities there. The biggest impression from Paris - Eiffel Tower, of course, and from Montreal - an organ concert.


3. Become a little artist 
During whole year Teddy attended 4Cats Art Studio and made much progress in art area. He is attending art classes without parent and solely responsible for his masterpieces. We noticed that he has a special vision and can see something unique in every person or thing that he is drawing. When you see his drawing you can guess who(what) he drew based on that unique feature. The same do street artists. For example, when he draw Gran Croods from “The Croods” movie he drew her with a cane and that cane has a very special shape. Because of shape of the cane – you can easily understand who is on the picture.

4.  Learn big pieces of children’s poetry by heart
We never tried to learn children’s poetry by hart with Teddy until daycare staff asked him to learn few lines for their Christmas party. We were surprised that he learned 4 lines in one minute and then decided to learn the bigger piece. He learnt several dozens lines easily and able to remember them for sometime. I think the best memories in their live people have in early child hood when they are 3-5 years old.


5. Doesn’t afraid to perform for big crowds
 It is one thing to learn something at home and completely different to perform alone when many people watching you. Teddy is not afraid to dance or sing to the audience even though he is usually shy with people if he doesn’t know them.

6. Understand difference between languages and alphabets 
Teddy knows different alphabets and speaks not only English. It is interesting to see how he can manage keep in memory everything, distinguish and write letters from different alphabets. He can also distinguish several languages. He understands when people speak in English, French or Spanish and if you ask him to speak one of these languages, he may pronounce something that doesn’t make sense, but sounds exactly like words from that language.


7. Love and started learning music 
Teddy loves music, listens and knows a lot of songs. He also has some percussion music instruments and DJ equipment for kids. This year he started asking questions about music and we decided that it is time for him to start learning piano and basic music theory. We bought Teddy a piano and he has   piano lesson once a week. He loves playing piano and learning new melodies every day with us.

8. Able to solve 300 pieces puzzles 
We bought new 100 pieces puzzle for Teddy and he solved it within and hour. We got 300 pieces puzzle and it was a challenge for him. He worked on it several days and few times even asked for help. At the end of the day he solved it too, but didn’t ask about new puzzle since then.

9. Willing to explore everything
Teddy likes to try everything and never says NO when it is about trying something new. I like it and try to support him in it. Sometimes it doesn’t turn to be a pleasant experience for him though. Teddy likes to dance and decided to attend trial dance lesson. He was excited and could not wait to start. All his excitement disappeared when he realized who his classmates will be - seven girls in identical pink classical tutus. After 10 minutes in class he gave up and said that he wants dance hip-hop in boys group and doesn’t like a ballet. All dance studios that we contacted required being 5 years old in order to attend hip-hop classes. So we’ll wait another year.

10. Can write a letter or a card.
This season Teddy wrote all birthday cards and a letter to Santa Clays by himself. Letters are big and different size, but everything is readable. Of course, you need to tell him what letter should be next, but he writes it without any help and knows how every letter looks like.

Overcoming your Shopping Addiction E-book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 photo Shopping_zps52132cc5.jpg

Shopping is so much distributed across the media these days that I simply could not skip an opportunity to read the book Overcoming your Shopping Addiction: The Guide to Beating your Addiction to Shopping and Ending the Shopping Addiction Cycle. I am probably not addicted to shopping, but I think most of people who addicted would say same thing as I do.Looking at my cosmetics I realized that I bought so much make-up, nail polishes and skin care which are enough for few years ahead. I know that I do not need that much, but how can you resist those shiny bottles inviting you to buy them again and again. Same comes with kids clothing and toys, I used to buy them a lot, parents always think that their kids deserve the best and the latest stuff. And what about bad days, an opportunity to escape from busy and stressful life, “retail therapy” is always waiting for you to “heal” all your problems from break ups to blue mood.

It is so easy to get trapped into shopping addiction and the society’s attitude to it mostly loyal. But as any addiction, shopping addiction requires the willingness to change the situation and acknowledgement of your habit.

Stephen Howe's book is precise and very specific, describes the signs of shopping addiction, how to recognise and overcome it, not assuming that it leaves easily as it comes. Omniomania should be taken seriously and once you admit your problem – first move is made towards addiction free life. The book also includes the real steps can be taken to resolve the shopaholic issues. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about shopping addiction and the shopping itself.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Ever After High Apparel Line Launch at Sears #SearsEverAfterHigh

Ever After High Displays

Last week I had an opportunity to attend exclusive Ever After High apparel launch event at Sears Fairview Mall. Ever After High - a doll franchise recently launched by Mattel and, definitely, is becoming very popular among girls around the world.

Are you a Royal Are you a Rebel

Ever After High stories are based on the characters from favorite children fairy tales. Children of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Evil Queen and other famous characters, (at high school age), are trying to find what future they are going to have. Are fairest kids going to continue the fates of their infamous parents or is there any way to build a new destiny, a new story and a new unique generation of high schooler? Are you a Royal or a Rebel? asking they each other, the high school split and new fairy tales are about to be born.

Ever After High apparel Ever After High apparel Ever After High apparel

Ever After High gives girls courage and confidence to make their own choices and be who they really want to be. While a Royal girl may embrace destiny, the Rebel rewrites it. I see my nieces and I cannot say that they are Royal or Rebel for sure, some kind of mix and it depends on situations. And I am sure that every girl is a bit Royal or Rebel.

Ever After High clothes Ever After High apparel

I really liked varieties of Ever After High apparel styles and colors. Every girl no matter Royal or Rebel will find among Sears Ever After High collection what is close to her personality. I was at school the other day with my little one and girls outfit reminded me Ever After High apparel: colors, design, laces, attachments, little signs, prints and even clothes length.

Ever After High dolls

Besides the everyday wear, Ever After High line has nice selection of sleepwear, cute accessories from little purses to travel bags and of course, a huge collection of dolls representing so various and different characters that everyone can find similarities in one of them.

At the event we were treated with fancy manicure and Royal delicious treats directly from Royal chefs I think. And most important it was great to see first customers coming to join Ever After High adventures and shopping for the apparel the best expressing their individuality, for the love of characters, independence and true beauty.

Missy Mila: Twisted Tales Volume 1 DVD Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Missy Mila DVD
Missy Mila is one those series that never leave you indifferent. Presented by Mila, an eight year old girl with a boundless imagination and lots of energy. She loves telling traditional stories but in her own unique style filled with fun and creativity. At the beginning I was quite skeptical about this DVD assuming that it is going to be another series of classic tales. But to my surprise after few minutes of watching I started liking it.

Teddy was very excited to see his familiar characters from tales like The Houses of the Pic Brothers, The Donkey and the King and Baba Yaga the Witch. He liked colorful scenes and great quality cartoons. While I knew almost all the tales, Teddy was not and learning some new ones. The best part is that there was not one long story but different ones collected around the world by energetic and imaginative girl Mila. So Teddy was not bored with same characters for a long time, in opposite, with every new story he was eager to learn what was going on.

Mila was not just a narrator, I like that she added some kind of analysis to her stories, asking questions why characters behave that way or how she interprets some scenes and doings. This way it come not only as a pure story telling but also questions why it happened that way and kids do not be shy to ask about it same as Mila does.

I think that this DVD is a very successful collection of classic stories around the world for the whole family plus Mila’s interpretations add to the tales so much fun and sparkle that everyone would love to watch them again and again.

For more information about Missy Milla series please check Organa.com web site. Good news, that one Teddy Out-Ready reader has a chance to one a copy of Missy Mila Twisted Tales Volume 1 for themselves. Simply fill the Rafflecopter from below and Good Luck!

Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 photo OzeriWeightMasterDigitalBathroomScale_zps7cd9992a.png
While I am a huge fan of different measuring gadgets but a bathroom scale was somehow out of my sight until we decided to track our weight. It is same like in finances, the best way is to find what are your up and down moments is to refer to numbers. And they, as you know, do not lie especially when you have such an exact measurement as Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale which uses 4 of the latest generation G sensors to accurately capture weights in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms.

I think we became addicted to measuring our weight since Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale arrived, even Teddy always steps on it to find the changes in his weight. Another special feature, which turned out to be an absolute saver in our bathroom is scale’s Microban® antimicrobial protection. With frequent skin contact when all family members use the scale and the moist bathroom environment, the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria is unavoidable. The Ozeri’s Microban® antimicrobial protection prevents the growth of bacteria and helps maintain scale surface clean.

I like the big LCD screen showing the weight, which is easy to read for me even without my glasses. You can easily switch between pounds and kilograms using the buttons under the scale. The top of the scale made of ultra-slip-resistant material is very helpful for our kids and seniors.

If you trying to lose weight as I do, measure your muscle weight or just follow the healthy lifestyle I highly recommend Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale. It is great for using by kids, seniors and adults, accurate and easy to set up. Plus it carries the lifetime Microban® antimicrobial protection and slip-resistant.

D-Nine: Protectors of the Crown E-book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Dr. James is suffering from severe headaches and after taking some pain relief pills he dives into another world where he is a girl but not just a regular girl, but a royal and a possible crown princess. From first experiences James finds it fun and curious to switch between two worlds, and play different gender roles. In the real world, as James assumes, he is a respectful doctor with family and friends, in another world of Medieval Times, he transforms into a young woman trying to find the truth about the palace conspiracies, but not knowing anyone and adjusting to rules and lifestyle of old times without an air conditioner, a heater, hot water, comfortable washrooms and proper hygiene.

The most interesting part starts when James finds out that he has tumor and he has to undergo a surgery and in another world James aka Princess Sarabeth was pursued by assassins but managed to escape with strong wish to find out who is the main figure in the crime. While getting ready for the surgery in one world, James as a girl joined D-Nine forces and successfully fulfilled the assignments making it closer to solving the mysteries connected to the Princess.

The revelation was my favorite, just mentioning that both worlds were real what gave James a chance to choose the one where he really wants to stay with its pros and cons. Mostly reminds me the “Awake” series but with a choice to be a man or a woman. After finding that both worlds were real I was sure that James would prefer to be a woman and a royal even in that dangerous world than a man with a tumor. But what if the tumor can be treated successfully and there is a chance to continue healthy and fulfilled life.

About the author Magus Tor: A doctor by day and game designer and writer by night, Magus Tor hopes to be able to turn the tables and become a game designer by day and doctor by night! He has already published three books. And one of his most recent books is D-Nine: Protectors of the Crown.

Say Goodbye to Embarrassing Personal Bathroom Odours with Just a Drop Products

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 Just a Drop

Bathroom odors are one of those you never get used, they are always embarrassing and undesirable. No matter if you are at home, at work or just getting out, an urge to visit a bathroom can come any time with accompanying unpleasant scents. From friends visits to mass events with respect to next person coming to share a bathroom it was great to find Just a Drop personal bathroom odour eliminator. One or two drops of this natural plant extract in the toilet, before you go, forms a film on the water surface that traps and eliminates unpleasant odours before they escape into the air.

I already wrote about our experience with Just a drop, this time we had an opportunity to try Just a Drop products with different scents Eucalyptus, Refreshing Spring and Floral Oasis. I puts these three Just a Drop products in our three different bathrooms to test. And it definitely worked for us, giving another proof to “I simply cannot believe that”. I found that one drop usually enough to cope with bad smells. From three scents I like Refreshing Spring the most (other scents are great too) because it is mild and fresh, similar to one when you enter the bathroom after cleaning.

I also take Just a Drop in smallest size (6ml) when we go out, travel and attend shows to be ready for bathroom visits, kids love making surprises too. Line-ups to a bathroom at some venues, public events and famous attractions can be lengthy, these moments I think that everyone should have Just a Drop in their purses. Just a Drop is not another bathroom spray or refresher. Their innovative products, created to get rid of bathroom odours before they reach anyone’s nose work perfectly and bring fantastic results.

Just a drop is generously offering one Canadian Teddy Out-Ready reader to win special All In One Assortment, which contains:

• 3 bottles of Just’a Drop 15ml bottles (Eucalyptus, Refreshing Spring and Floral Oasis scent),
• 10 Singles (individual use pouches) and,

Go Anywhere Travel Feeding Booster Seat

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Booster Seat
With our travelling habits, we appreciate any “gadgets” for little ones, making our lives much easier. Recently we found one of them is Go Anywhere Travel Feeding Booster Seat. This lightweight booster seat became a saver for our trips. It is compact, easy to carry and folds up into a messenger bag style with handle and shoulder strap. The seat also includes a pocket to keep some necessary items like napkins, wipes and spoons.

Travel Feeding Booster Seat

Since our first set up we started calling Go Anywhere Travel Feeding Booster Seat a “Throne”. When we go out for dinner or visit our friends and relatives we always take the seat with us. It is comfortable and features a five point restraint harness, two sets of adjustable straps to secure to almost any chair. It can be set up in few minutes and carried with you almost anywhere. My parents, most of our friends with grown up kids do not have any high chairs and booster seats that’s why we really appreciate having the portable booster seat now.

 Go Anywhere Travel Feeding Booster Seat

I also noticed that the “Throne” not only gives a kid an opportunity to sit with other older children and adults, but also keeps him from moving around in a good sense like crawling under table, jumping and running around (as it was before we had the chair) while everyone is having their meal. The toddler learns about good eating habits – finish your meal without any interruption as everyone at the table and then go to play. Speaking of styles, Travel Feeding Booster Seat is available in Espresso Blue, Espresso Pink and Black & Red color schemes. I received Black & Red seat and Teddy likes it a lot, saying Red Power Rangers have Red seat.

Bright colors and the brilliant pattern remind me spring and hot summer time. That variety of colors also makes the leggings perfectly fit any color top, long shirt, skirt or dress.

Control the Scent With Ever Bamboo Naturally

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 photo EverBamboo1_zpsf8ddbb54.jpg
With a big family and different preferences not only in food but also in activities, work conditions and lifestyle, unpleasant odors seem unavoidable. While adults may be get used to some smells and do not even notice them, the kids are very sensitive to all odours and always mention that.

Recently I had a chance to try eco-friendly bamboo charcoal products from Ever Bamboo. Bamboo charcoal is made from the rapidly growing moso bamboo. It contains tiny holes which can trap odor and moisture making charcoal as both a deodorizer and dehumidifier. I had chosen to try Shoe Deodorizer, Fridge + Freezer Deodorizer and HEI Bamboo Charcoal Face + Body Bar.

Fridge Freezer Deodorizer

At the beginning of January we were on vacation and before leaving our fridge cleaned of everything. Upon our return when we stocked our fridge again to the fullest, I decided to give Fridge + Freezer Deodorizer a try. We love cooking and making preservatives, this adds up some unpleasant odours even though we close tight our jars and pots with sauerkraut, vegetables or cottage cheese. While I do not complain about our freezer section, it does not smell anything; our fridge needs a deodorizer all year long. Fridge + Freezer Deodorizer is a nice pouch containing 100% natural bamboo charcoal. After using it for few days I noticed that all those “sour” scents reduced significantly without adding anything extra, they were simply absorbed due to the charcoal abilities as a deodorizer and dehumidifier. I also like that the fridge deodorizer is unscented and quite small size.

Shoe Deodorizer

Next product I tried was Shoe Deodorizer, it is a definitely a must-have item for everyone who wants to have odor-free shoes. We tried the Shoe Deodorizer package for my husband’s shoes. One pouch in each shoe. And while my husband did not notice any difference I did, his shoes stopped having that smell as if he exercised the whole day in these shoes. Plus our shoe drawer smells much better than before and all other shoes too.

HEI Bamboo Charcoal Face Body Bar

The last product I tried is HEI Bamboo Charcoal Face + Body Bar, what I have to say first it smells really good. I can describe that smell as freshness or something you missed and finally found. After trying you want to go back and use it again. And the bar’s black color seems to me absolute luxury. I used it to wash my face and I ensure that results are amazing, as a face bar it cleans, exfoliates and absolutely does not dry your skin.

I was truly impressed with Ever Bamboo products. They are natural, unscented, have amazing abilities as a deodorizer and dehumidifier. Plus one package lasts up to one year and can be easily recycled in a green bin or even a garden. And do not forget to recharge a package under the sun every 30-60 days.

Speaking of other Ever Bamboo products what caught my eye are Hockey Deodorizer Set which helps eliminate odours in skates, gloves, or other hockey equipment. And another one - Bin Deodorizer + Dehumidifier for Garbage Bin, Diaper Pail, Compost Pail and others. Those will be next in my list of bad odor elimination. For more information about Ever Bamboo you can easily find them on Twitter and Facebook.

I am glad to announce that Ever Bamboo is generously offering one lucky Teddy Out Ready reader a gift set consisting of next four items:
  • Shoe Deodorizer
  • Mini Deodorizer + Dehumidifier (ideal for gym bag and lockers)
  • Closet Deodorizer + Dehumidifier 
  • Room Deodorizer + Dehumidifier
For your chance please fill the Rafflecopter form below and Good Luck! The giveaway is open to Canadian residents only and ends March 7, 2014.
