Find Me If You Can Review and Giveaway

Thursday, December 27, 2012



Every Christmas my grandparents would send my sister and I books as gifts.  Usually one of those books were one of those search and find things in it and of course were always a HUGE hit.
This year as I was looking for books for Coco, I recently discovered a company called Bammco that creates these Find Me If You Can books for children.  What's so great about these book is that they are personalized with your own children's pictures.  Plus you can add up to five faces per book - so if you have more than one child you can include them all!  Each page is unique and different so by the end of the book, your kiddo doesn't remember where they were in the beginning.



Bammco is a family based company too.  A husband and wife, Tom and Sue, took three years to create and develop the Find Me If You Can book.  Since they raised three boys of their own, they know what kids like, which is obvious through the quality of the book as well as the engagement that it gives to children.

  So, I sent off a picture of Coco and was shipped this adorable book where you spend time looking at each page through the various pictures of other kiddos in search of your tot's face.
My son LOVES it!
And so do my husband and I!
We love to sit on the couch and search for Coco on each page.  Secretly my husband and I have a race to find him first, but Coco has a blast.  Whenever we find his face we'll say, "There's Coco!" and he just laughs away.
  He also thinks he finds his sissy on every page too when he comes across a girl with glasses even though I tell him every time that is not sissy.



 Looking for that perfect and original gift to give to a little one?
Find Me If You Can books make great gifts for holidays, birthdays or special occasions, plus they are super unique and you won't have to worry about someone getting the same gift!
Find Me if You Can books provide tons of fun for your family and are the perfect solution for family bonding.


Buy It:
To order your Find Me If You Can book or to learn more about it, check out Bammco's website.  Books retail for $29.99.  Check out Bammco on Facebook and Twitter too!

Win It:
One (1) winner will win a promo code for their very own personalized Find Me If You Can book.

WINTER Wednesday

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas!  Apparently we were pretty good this year because Santa did not disappoint.  Coco thoroughly enjoyed his Christmas.  I think he was a bit overwhelmed, but it was so fun to see him get excited about the morning and understand that Santa really did come!


Before Santa...



After Santa.


I had planned to share some of my wonderful after Christmas deals I scored today but.....

As you can see my plans have be derailed by a flipping Blizzard warning.  Now, I'm from Northern Indiana so we are used to this kind of snow, especially lake effect.  However, Central Indiana is not and therefore everything closes...including the mall.

I can't tell you how much I DESPISE snow.
This weather can kiss it.

I'll post a few good stores to shop at today with their best deals.  I know Old Navy is up to 75% off -- this is my FAVORITE time to hit up that store.  So if you can actually get your car out of the garage I'd definitely hit them up.

Now I'm off to spend my day cooped up with my Kindle Fire reading another girly novel.
Oh, and I'll be posting a super adorbes product giveaway too, so be prepared.


Happy Snow! (not)

My Job as a School Mom



The other day one of my students asked me a question and accidentally called me mom.  We both giggled about it but then she said to me, "No, really Mrs. Baumgartner.  You're like my mom here at school.  You know, my school mom."
The more I thought about it, I am like a school mom.  My job goes beyond reading, writing and arithmetic.  It's my job to make sure they have breakfast if they want it, or get them a band-aid for their cut, or send them to the nurse with an upset tummy or tell them school lunch will be super yummy when they forget their lunch at home.  But these are just a few of the many things I am responsible for with these children.
It's my job to keep them safe during the day when they're away from their own homes.

 And then Friday happened.
My teammates and I were glued to our computers, constantly refreshing our the CNN link to get more information about what was happening.

How could something like this happen in an elementary school?

The first picture I saw was of two teachers leading a group of students to safety.  It was the look of pure terror and their cries and screams that tugged my heart so much.  I just kept thinking of the absolute fear those students faced and then the innocence that was lost in a matter of seconds.
I couldn't stop thinking about those children as I taught my 23 second graders the remainder of the day.

I can't imagine the nightmare that Sandy Hook Elementary endured Friday.
I can't imagine the nightmare the emergency crew endured Friday.
I can't imagine the nightmare the families of the victims are currently living.

I just can't imagine...

My heart breaks right now, along with the rest of the country.  As I read more stories, I know that these teachers did all they could to protect the young lives they were in charge of that day - some even losing their own lives trying to save these students.  I am sure that these teachers and administrators were as prepared as they could be for this awful situation.
But what you can't prepare for is the mental illness that takes over these crazy, insane sick people that create these types of tragedies..
You just can't.

No one could prepare for a situation this tragic.  No one WANTS to have to prepare for a situation as sad and horrific as this one.

Ask any person who is a teacher why they got into the profession - they definitely won't say it's the money.
I chose education because I wanted to make a difference - because I really love what I do.

And I love my other job as a mother because there is no greater feeling than picking up my little guy and getting a hug and smile from him.

I would do anything for my students that I would want done for my own child.
I know the teachers and administrators at Sandy Hook feel the same way.

My heart breaks for Newtown, Connecticut.  I pray for peace, strength and their ability to make sense as they try to move on from this awful situation.
So, as you put down the computer, phone and television remote to spend just those extra few minutes with your family, don't forget to tell them you love them.

And then thank their teachers for being their school mom when you can't be there with them because they truly treat them like their own.

My Thoughts and Prayers,
Kait
