2015 Christmas Gift Guide: Item #2 - Bright Time Buddies

Okay, so when I tell you about this gift, you can't tell my littlest one, Weston. He is in a phase of life where he is slightly petrified by many things in life - thunderstorms, rollercoasters and along with half of the world at some point, the dark. To further complicate his 5-year-old issues, his room is on the second floor of our house, down its own hallway across from an eerily, empty media room and the attic access!

When my sister told me she was looking for a good Christmas gift for him and I came across this next product, I knew we had an incredible solution to his problem:

Of course, we already have an array of night lights that Weston alternates . . . in addition to the closet light, the bathroom light and sometimes even the overhead light that he leaves on in his room overnight. The real problem comes in when he has a bad dream, has to go to the bathroom during the night or needs something from Mom and Dad. He has to come all the way downstairs and across the house to get to us. But it's dark. So, Weston proceeds to turn on EVERY light between his room and ours - and then they stay on for the rest of the night. 

Enter one of the Bright Time Buddies. They come in several shapes and designs - unicorn, dog, penguin, cat, owl, and even a ladybug - all soft and cuddly, so they can be taken to bed comfortably. But regardless of the shape, the best part is that this nightlight can go WITH you wherever you go. It truly is a "buddie" that makes you feel safe and can tag along when you brave the darker corners of the house. 

Alternating between green, blue and yellow lights or rotating among them, your child's choice of the Bright Time Buddies will provide your child with a subtle, soft glow that allows them to fall asleep. With automatic shutoff after one hour, it will keep your little one feeling safe but not wake them up or bother them once they are comfortably sleeping for the night. 

These do require 3 AA batteries, but that is a small cost to pay for knowing your child feels comfortable and confident being all by himself.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
