Mother’s Day is Here…

Because the little ones are always proud to give the grown-ups a hand, the motherchildbag is equipped with an extra handle to allow them to help Mum or Dad carry home the shopping. Another bonus? They’re so engrossed in the task that they stay close to their parents in jostling inner-city crowds and heavy traffic.  That’s the way it should be – and practical to boot!  $23.00 available at www.touchofeurope.net

For the Bookworm mom…

You will be the apple of her eye when you give her a membership to BookSwim.  It is America’s only online rental company that lets you choose from newly released hardcover and paperback titles. There are plans to fit every budget and a variety of genres to choose from. There are no due dates and never any late fees. Books are delivered to the front door Netflix-style, which leaves Mom more time to herself. Bookswim.com prices start at $9.95 a month

For the Working Mom….

Life can be complicated—phone, change, cards, keys, sunglasses, laptop… Stay on top of it and look good whether you’re in jeans and a tee or a blazer and slacks. The Laptop Sizes fits either a 13″ or 15″ $189 and up- 1 or 2 day shipping available. www.sfbags.com

Add a Little Color to Mom’s Life…


Summer is almost here and mom may want a little glow.  Legendary skin care company Sothys offers a luxurious product line that brings out the warm tones in your skin. The Cellu-Guard® line improves skin tone and firmness even when the weather is most drab. Sothys’ mission in creating their new products was to create a simple approach to year-round healthy color. Let the remarkable results of these tantalizing products speak for themselves. Starting at $38.00- available at www.sothys-usa.com

Give the Gift of Sleep…


Does your toddler think it’s morning at 5AM? Do you want to give the “Mom” in your life the gift of sleep? The Good Nite Lite features a friendly, glowing caricature face that changes from a Moon to a Sun at the programmed “wake-up” time, and from a Sun to a Moon at the programmed “bedtime.” With the help of their parents, children rapidly come to associate the moon image with the knowledge that it is still bedtime and the sun with the idea that it is the correct time to wake up. During the day, the Good Nite Lite automatically shuts off to eliminate any distractions and to conserve energy. Good Nite Lite is available at www.GoodNiteLite.com for just $34.99.

SidsFamily

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines.

The same can be said of other...
