Inflatable Haunted House as PlayHouse


Inflatable Haunted HouseInflatable Haunted HouseI love Halloween. Seriously, as a kid, what is better than knocking at someone's door and having someone hand you candy. When my oldest son was two years old, he got the hang of trick-or-treating a little too quickly. At the age of one, my youngest child had more candy from trick-or-treating than I ate the first 20 years of my life (no, he didn't eat all of the candy, he just accumulated it). read more »

I love the decorations too. I came across this inflatable haunted house that looks like a giant playhouse. Its better than all those other inflatables they have out for Halloween because it does more than just sits there looking spooky. You can walk (or run) through it.

Kids Sick? Give them Lollipops - HotSpotMama Find


It finally feels like its fall in the Northeast. I'm seeing leaves fall and kids starting to cough. I thought of this article I wrote back during the summer and thought it was very appropriate right now. Hope it makes your winter a little easier. Here it is. ..

If candy wasn’t so bad for my kids, I would let them consume it 24/7. Nothing seems to quiet a whinning child as quickly and effectively as candy. Now imagine your child sick at home and whinning and having the amazing ability to say, “Hey, I’ve got a great idea, why don’t you have a lollipop?” Your child will look at you with questioning eyes. Is it a trick?

Night Lights - HotSpotMama Find


Twilight Turtle

When I was growing up, I had the traditional night light. It had one of those tiny bulbs with a plastic cover that only covered the front half of the bulb. I guess that was so a child couldn't touch the bulb directly. Too bad any one year child could pop the cover off. Today, companies appear to have taken night lights to the next level along with everything else out there for kids.

Coolest Combo: Phone and Video Baby Monitor - HotSpotMama Find


KX-TGA573SKX-TGA573SWhen I had my first baby (who is now 5 years old), we bought this great video baby monitor. We thought it was the coolest thing that we could watch our child while he was sleeping without him seeing us. The problem I had was it was pretty big and bright. The screen had to be about four inches. So when we went to bed and left the monitor on (yes, typical first time mom), it pretty much lite up our entire room. Also, it was a huge eye sore on my dresser.

You can avoid all that now. Panasonic has come along with the KX-TGA573S Panasonic 5.8 GHz FHSS GigaRange® Expandable Digital Cordless Camera. It is essentially a video monitor that can be used with a compatable Panasonic color phone handset.

Giant Ice Pack for your Child's Seat - HotSpotMama Find


Seat ChillerSeat ChillerWhen its hot and humid and hitting record highs, what's the first thing you think of? Finding something to cool you down. A nice body sized ice pack sounds good.

Well dealing with the heat is much worse when you have young kids with you. On a hot summer day, you know you're going to hear whinning. Especially when you put the kids into a car. Its almost always 10 degrees hotter in the car. It would be great for their car seats to be nice and cool when they get into it. My prayers have been answered by a company called Kooler Kidz.
