A good camera is worth its weight in gold

Photos are the most prevalent way of keeping memories; who writes diaries now days? Very few people, and there are even fewer readers out there. Sure, we have a scrapbook where we keep notes and write a sentence or two about the milestones our babies and kids go through. But this can in no way replace a single photo of a babies first bath or that perfect morning when they wake up happy and smile for no apparent reason. A single photo can transport you back in time instantly… everyone smiles when they look at photos of babies. It’s a fact 🙂 ! Every time my wife and I show friends and family our family photos I am reminded of the first two years of our son’s life and how we didn’t have a good camera. It’s not that we have some sort of a super camera now, it’s just…

Clay Impression Kit for Babies and Children

Doesn’t it look cute? 🙂 A fixed idea in my wife’s mind was making a cast impression of our sons feet. This was a couple of years ago and she was shopping for the perfect kit. She had found one in a local mall, it even contained frames for the soon to be made pieces of art/history. What we did not take into account was that our son’s feet were to big for the frames and that the frames themselves were the selling point of the kit while the clay was just plain clay I suppose. Hopefully it was safe and tested for toxic chemicals… I mean it seams it was since my kid is still healthy 🙂 The mistakes we made I believe I even remember the ball park price: around 30 dollars. Doesn’t seem that much when you imagine how beautiful it will look like. So that was…

BabyBjorn Bouncer

There’s two things I must say upfront. The first thing is that I love the BabyBjorn Bouncer and I believe it is a lifesaver. The other thing is that I urge you not to buy it for your kid before you test it out because not all children love it that much and the Bouncer does cost quite a bit so you might even consider getting a second hand bouncer. Our story We got our BabyBjorn Bouncer as a used gift from a family friend with high praises that could be summed up to the bouncer practically being able to raise children on its own. We tried it with our son who was about 6 – 9 months old expecting he would use it as a rocker but he instantly rejected it leaving the bouncer waiting for almost a year until my niece started using it… and she loved it…

AA and AAA Battery Charger

    An AA and AAA battery recharger is one of those pieces of equipment you’ll find extremely valuable if you have a kid who loves to play with battery powered toys because they are the most common batteries you’ll need for toys. Sure, you can use the batteries for other devices like your wireless mouse, a bluetooth keyboard or even your baby-phone… but let’s be real, it’s the RC toys that will be using them the most. My reasons for buying a charger 🙂 I bought the recharger above because my four year old asked for a remote control car for his birthday… and every dad knows that RC cars are really truly super fun BUT drain batteries like angry vampires. Unless we’re talking about the more expensive RC toys that have their own integrated rechargeable battery (although I’ve seen toys with rechargeable batteries that were not very reliable).…
