Mother's Day Feature 1 of 3

Mother's Day is just around the corner so we thought the next three features should be geared towards gifts for moms.

Our first feature is Sharma Designs - Accessorize your originality. Sharma Designs has the trendiest jewelry around. Sharma designs the jewelry herself and handcrafts it - each piece is one of a kind (which we think is really cool). The best part is that if you order now - you can get it in time for Mother's Day - she ships within 48hours of payment receipt - so HURRY!

These are just a few of our favorite pieces - but she has 108 items in her etsy shop right now - so you're sure to find something you absolutely LOVE!

Giveaway: Tuthillo Lost Tooth Companion

Oh boy, you are going to LOVE this giveaway!
The super cool people over at Tuthillo, have given us one of their ever popular Lost Tooth Companions to give away to one of our readers! We are really excited about this product!

So excited in fact, that we thought about keeping it for ourselves....but we wanted to share it with all of you even more - because it is so fun! It is really soft and our little tester went absolutely CRAZY over it! You can't help but fall in love with this goofy little thing!

So you might be asking what is a Lost Tooth Companion? It's a lifesaver for all you parents out there who have almost gotten 'caught' sneaking into your child's room at night pretending to be the Tooth Fairy. This new twist on the old tooth pillow is super fun and sure to make your child giggle. It's a little silly looking and comes in vibrant colors sure to get your child to show you that toothless grin.

You see that gap in the teeth? The Lost Tooth Companion has two 'hidden' pockets (they aren't really hidden, but they aren't really visible unless you know they are there). The smaller pocket is where your child puts his/her lost tooth and the other larger pocket is for the tooth fairy to leave a little something special, making it very easy to find in the dark!!!! Tooth Fairies around the world are cheering!

The owner, Heather Crow, embarked on the journey of creating something that would revolutionize the tooth pillow world. She wanted to create something that would altogether replace the boring square shaped little white pillow (you know the one, it's the one that is always getting lost when your child actually does lose a tooth). Somewhere along the way The Lost Tooth Companion was born - and children all over the world are loving it! The best thing about a Lost Tooth Companion is that your child can play with it all the time!

Super Fun & Super Trendy!

There are two ways to enter this CONTEST:
(contest ends at midnight on April 26th)

1) Visit the Tuthillo website and leave us a comment telling us what your favorite Tuthillo product is.


2) Post something on your blog about the giveaway - make sure you mention Tuthillo, the giveaway and Trendy Mommy (links to Tuthillo and Trendy Mommy are appreciated!), and leave us a comment here with a link to your blog.

And as Heather, Tuthillo Founder & Owner, says, "From One Tooth Fairy to Another....ENJOY!"

Chores Got Your Little One in the Dumps?

Why not make tracking chores more fun with this chore tracker created by the fun people over at My Reward Board.

So how does it work? From the My Reward Site:

The My Reward Board program emphasizes a positive approach for encouraging kids to complete their chores, achieve their goals, improve their behavior, and save their money.

New chores and goals can be added at any time, and kids mark off their own work using a cast of
engaging happy face characters. Parents can configure the program to conform to their own parenting style, controlling how frequently rewards are earned and which rewards are available. Achievement certificates - suitable for framing, or at least hanging on the refrigerator - are printed at the end of each week, and an animated piggy bank squeals in delight when allowance is earned or a savings goal has been met.

And here's our favorite part - you can get a free 15 day trial to see how it all works and if your kids are into it or not.

So we got to work scouring the internet looking for something that was prepackaged and would include several different fun learning oriented here it is.....and please note that we haven't actually seen this product first hand.

Ever have those days where you just don't know what to do with your 2 1/2 to 5 year old? We do! You've been to the park 5 times this week, you've been to the mall play area, you've even had a lunch date with baby cakes best little friend, and all baby cakes toys have been played with to now what? Why not try out a month's curriculum from Mother Goose Time? They offer a planned preschool curriculum that will allow you to work with your child to learn new things and have a blast spending time together, all the while adding some variety to your days. Mother Goose Time has a new curriculum each month - although the site may be geared towards actual preschool classes taught outside the home....they do offer the curriculum packages for one student - $44 for a month's worth of activities. Here's what the April curriculum entails:

HUG THE EARTH:Even the youngest preschooler should practice “earthhugging habits.” The crafts and activities emphasize reducing waste, recycling, preserving energy and cleaning up litter.
AROUND THE WORLD:Experience the adventure of a visit to foreign lands in a way that combines learning with fun.
