One Busy Day, Disney, Hyperion Books
“All Mia wants is for her big brother, Spencer, to play with her. But he’s always too busy. With a little imagination and a lot of love, Mia might just be able to show Spencer that it’s a lot more fun to be busy together.”

One Busy Day: A Story for Brothers & Sisters (written by Lola M. Schaefer & illustrated by Jessica Meserve) is a follow up to One Special Day: A Story for Big Brothers & Sisters.  I won One Special Day at the perfect time.  I was pregnant with baby brother and we were doing our best to foster a positive sibling relationship for our boys.  It’s not difficult to make me cry and the beautiful story of Spencer becoming a big brother to baby Mia had me in tears.  The rambunctious and rowdy Spencer reminded me of our lil man.  The book foreshadowed the moment my boys met each other and the calm and quiet that came over Aiden when he held his baby brother.

 Spencer has grown up and so has Mia.  We’re about 2 years later in this book and Mia has the same energy and imagination as her big brother.  All Mia wants is to play and explore with her brother; Spencer just wants to play on his own.  Books about siblings often leave me flustered, portraying a model of the older sibling annoyed and pushing their younger sibling aside.

This book models and shows the relationship as it grows.  How the inquisitive Mia engages with her brother and how their relationship grows into lots of fun and giggles.  One of my favorite parts of the book are the little story excerpts in the front and back.  The simple words and pictures that give a snapshot of the book.  Aiden loves to end the book by giving me a synopsis of the story.  A book that depicts a positive sibling relationship and engages children in storytelling.

The story of One Busy Day is beautiful, but the illustrations are even more stunning.  The words guide it, but the pictures truly tell the story.  The pair of books have quickly been a favorite of the whole family.      One Busy Day, Disney, Hyperion Books

Our home has been chemical free for several years now.  We purged the household cleaning supplies, but struggled to “clean-up” our personal care routine. With that said every year we do a big household organization, the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd). I’m a list maker so I’m happy to share a bit of the type-A side with all the health and money saving tips for a chemical free home.  Thanks to Walgreens, their new Ology line is making it easier to keep my healthy home and passing on the social responsibility for a healthy world.

It’s hard to believe we are on our way to Disneyland for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.  I’ve been working hard to get the kids all outfitted for our first big family trip their.  Disney has partnered with Kohl’s for a whole new Jumping Bean #MagicAtPlay clothing line for infants-7.  Lots of Mickey and Minnie cuteness for the kiddos.

The red, white and blue color scheme is perfect for the upcoming summer season.  The girls selection was so cute and trendy.  From soft cotton tanks, to glitter and tulle accents.  I like dressing the boys is basics with just a little bit of flair.  There was a great selection of cotton shorts and Mickey shirts.  For the athlete there was no shortage of sports themed shirts and basketball shorts.  We went with a classic look to make it easy for mom and dad to match.  Taking advantage of this while they’re still young; cute coordinating outfits for pictures in the park.  

The boys just found out about the trip on the way out the door.  No cute pictures to share yet, but follow along the #DisneySMMoms and #MagicAtPlay trail to follow along with all the fun our family and many others will be having all weekend long.  
The Disney Jumping Beans Magic At Play clothing line is available at Kohl’s and Kohls.com for infants (12-24 months), toddlers (2T-4T), and boys & girls (4-7).
