Mighty Mug: Helping Moms Keep Their Sanity AND Coffee in Check!

mighty mug

As a mom, you have to be prepared for anything… as a mom of BOYS you have to be prepared for the worst! Random kicks and punches are normal every day play. Swinging a baseball bat to hit a toy car off a dresser? Yeah, they have that covered! Throwing a football across the kitchen while you are cooking? Can’t say I haven’t seen that happen! And they always seem to be ready to go the minute they wake up! I’m still wiping the sleep out my eyes and trying to get my point across that mommy is not a very nice mommy if she doesn’t have her coffee before you start playing Incredible Hulk with her furniture! Many times, I have been found yelling and almost in tears because my drink has been spilled. Coffee…. not a smell that is easy to clean up either! So, with the promise … read more

Let the Worry Eater Take Care of that Fear for you!

worry eater

As the mom of a young child, there is always one thing we have to learn how to conquer… a child’s fears. Many times, these can even be completely irrational and take some serious thought on HOW exactly to help them overcome something that we may find completely ridiculous. I mean the normal monsters in the closet, afraid of the dark, don’t want to be alone fears are bad enough but what about when your child is terrified of the sound of crickets at night (you can’t stop those!) a fly passing by can become a 4 year olds biggest fear and you’d think a giant shark just tried to swallow them whole.. but what can you do? I have had moments where I was at my breaking point trying to figure out ways to stop the irrational fears my toddler can create. Until we received Flint, our pirate Worry … read more

Bears for Humanity, Changing the World, Two Teddy Bears at a time!


How can a teddy bear (or two) change the world? It seems like a silly statement to make. But in the case of Bears for Humanity, Teddy truly is making a difference!

What if every time you bought a bear for someone dear to you, a bear was given to someone who may not otherwise be receiving a bear but could so desperately use one to cheer them up during the darkest of times in their life? A child moving from home to home in foster care, a veteran returning home from a stressful tour (or a verteran’s child whose father who will never return) or a child from a low income family who just wishes … read more
