Wow Wow Wubbzy: Wubbzy Goes Boo. Wubbzy and his friends are back just in time for the fall season! Watch as Wubbzy, Widget and Walden clean up a crazy mess with Moo Moo’s magic wand, try to collect the very last leaf of autumn, pick the perfect pumpkin and create the spookiest Halloween costume of all. There’s singing, dancing ...
Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and Trick-or-Treat bags for greater visibility.
Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider non-toxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. Hats should fit properly to prevent them from sliding over eyes.
When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame resistant.
Halloween is finally here. It is a wonderful time of year when the kids are full of excitement. The excitement can be contagious. The costumes, the candy, and the pumpkin carving. Who doesn't love all of the fun? This weeks newsletter is full of Halloween fun, I am sure that you will find something to keep your weekend full of fun!
Giveaway, coupon and mom-event opportunity!
When my first child started eating more than just milk, I was a bit scared. I had no idea what to buy. Most of the products contained ingredients I couldn't even read, much less completely understand what it was and why it was good (or not) for my sweet baby. I was well-aware there would be years and years ahead of me when I couldn't always control what I was putting into his body, so I really wanted to get him started on the right foot.

No mom enjoys hearing a child cough, even though pediatricians often remind parents that coughing is actually a good thing — it’s the body’s way of keeping the lungs clear and preventing pneumonia. But that doesn’t make the problem any easier for you or your child, especially when your little one can’t get a good night’s sleep because of a nagging cough.
The first question you need to ask yourself is, “How sick is my child?” says Benaroch. For instance, sucking in the ribs with every ...

Unless you live in a cave, you’ve seen or at least heard of the Sound of Music, but have your children? Now’s a great time to share this amazing film with them. While they may be bamboozled by the lack of cartoons, special effects and the like, the incredible music and the real characters will grab their attention and suck them in. Instead of Katy Perry’s racy lyrics, enlighten your kids to the sounds of “My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going On Seventeen,” “Edelweiss” and the title song ...
