Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. We went to a friend's birthday party where S got to play on a slip and slide, swung around on a tree rope and kicked around a soccer ball all day long. It was also his first time beating a pinata to near death. What is it about kids and pinatas? Do they just have this built up aggression bottled inside all their little bodies they need to get out? Or do they really want to see what's inside the pinata? I don't know, but each of the kids were so eager for their turn with the bat.

On The Shelf

Today is the first day of the last year of preschool for our little guy. The end of summer means I am back to blogging! I apologize for the sporadic blodding over the summer break, but having S home everyday means full-time mommyhood so I'm very grateful for your patience and understanding. It was a great summer. And unlike a lot of my other mommy friends, I felt like it flew by too quickly. For some reason I feel like S was just in school a week ago and now I'm packing his book bag again. Must be the old age because apparently the older you get the quicker time seems to pass by *sigh*.

Has your little one ever liked a character or toy that you did not think was all that cute or cool? HA! If you answered "no never!" to that, then wow I salute you! So far, our (as in our little dude's) mini obsession has been with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). And let's admit it, most hardcore boy-toys are on the lower end of the cute spectrum. TMNT included.

Within a mere couple of years, we've managed to collect so many toys, we don't know what to do with ourselves. I'm first to admit that I have loved shopping at toy stores more than shopping for my own stuff since becoming a mommy. I get more happiness and gratification seeing my little boy's face light up. It's not an excuse for getting too many fun things, but too late now! That, plus all the christmas presents, birthday presents and presents for no special reason. Too. Many. Toys. And the older they get, the littler the toys seem to get.

If you've been following the blog, you already know that S woke up one day and decided he loves superheroes and that he can sometimes transform himself into a superhero. Mostly Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk (Thor only showed up once or twice). Boys will be boys! But because he's only 3 years old, and I am so not ready to get into the action-figures-lying-all-over-the-house phase, for our trip to Hawaii, I wanted to surprise him with some new exciting superhero toys while keeping it still "cute".

Little Foods For The Little Kitchens

Here in our house, we're huge fans of food toys because the little guy loves to cook in his kitchen. Every evening, when it's time for me to make dinner, he tells me "wait for me mama! We'll cook together!". He would cook in his little kitchen while I cooked in mine, and he would fill the dining table with dishes he made for daddy, dessert included and everything. Here are some of our favorite food toys. Enjoy your weekend!

Stack 'Em High

As soon as little ones have better hand-eye coordination, one of their favorite things to do is to stack things and then knock them down. There are some adorable stacking blocks available, it's hard to pick just one. Here are some of our favorites:

Jellycat Critters

Jellycat has always been our favorite stuffed-animal maker. Our little guy has 5 of them (none of which we bought ourselves), but his aunts and uncles have picked some super cute ones for him. I came across their recent collection and had to share some of my current favorites. I love the mix of fabrics and textures, and I'm sure it's fun for little babies to dig their fingers into all the fun fur! S used to chew on his alligators feet when he was little, and I just told him the other day that he used to do that and he said "but I don't do that anymore, I'm not a baby anymore".

Tegu Blocks

One of the things that provided us with lots of airplane entertainment on our trip this past winter are the Tegu blocks! I'd seen them a while ago and thought they were the coolest invention. Wooden blocks with embedded magnetic strips that allows you to create all types of vehicles, buildings and animals?! Wooden blocks that your child can't lose because they don't fall apart or fall all over the place? Um, yes please! I made sure to keep all the little toys I secretly purchased for the little guy hidden from him in his little back pack.
