Happy Family Organic Superfoods - Happy Child Organic Super Nutrition Shake Review - Yum!




We LOVE Happy Family in this house. Currently, Little J is eating Happy Yogi's as I type this. 

Our newest favorite is the Happy Child Organic Super Nutrition Shake. They are available in chocolate and vanilla, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. They contain 8 organic fruits and vegetables,  and contain 8g of protein, 3g of fiber, and 21 vitamins and minerals to help round out your toddlers diet. 

Little J could not wait to get his hands on the Super Nutrition Shakes when our big red Happy Family box came in the mail!


We received the chocolate and the vanilla, and a very awesome Happy Family cool-pouch to keep the shakes cold on-the-go.


Little J really enjoyed the shakes. He thought they were delicious, and fun to drink out of the box. 

As a parent, I liked that he was getting so much extra nutrition in his diet. Kids can't live on just cheese and grapes, after all ;)

Nick's New Haven Style Pizzeria & Bar Restaurant - Coral Springs & Boca Raton - Kids Eat Free


There are few things in life that I love more than food. One of those things would be free food. 

So, I was thrilled to find out that one of my new favorite restaurants in Coral Springs, Nick's New Have Style Pizzeria & Bar, now offers a "Kids Eat Free" Day! 

Every Monday, ALL DAY, kids 12 and under get a free pizza flat and drink with the purchase of an adult entree. My two little boys can EAT, so this is great news! 


My mom and I recently were able to try Nick's before their Coral Springs grand opening, and we instantly fell in love. I had never been to their Boca Raton location, so I was really looking forward to tasting all of their amazing food. 


Nick's menu is filled with Italian delights such as: fried calamari, bruschetta, a great pasta selection, tasty salads, chicken francese, chicken and sausage scarpariello, and of course, a huge pizza selection made in their unique brick oven. 

The drinks and desserts on Nick's New Haven Style Pizzeria & Bar menu are out-of-this-world!! I could seriously just go there to make a meal out of all of the beautiful beverages and desserts they create. 

There is also a private dining room available for parties, and an extensive wine cellar.

Next time you're looking for a fabulous place to eat in South Florida, make sure it's Nick's....you will not be disappointed!

Ten Things I Said to My Two Year Old Kid Today...and Everyday.


1. "Stop throwing your food on the floor" without fail, after every meal in our home, my floor looks like a small pack of wild animals ransacked a dumpster behind the Outback Steakhouse and left it for me to clean up. 

2. "Don't kick/hit/push your brother" I'm pretty sure that the smallest human child that occupies space in our home has a permanent "kick me" sign on his back. Poor baby. I can't wait for the day that he grows bigger than his brother and can give him a taste of his own sneaker. 

3. "Get down from there" It will be a miracle if this kid makes it to 3 without needing to wear a helmet full-time. He keeps climbing on furniture and heaven forbid if I want his head to stay in one piece. 

4. "Yes, we need to change your diaper" I mean, why would he actually want to sit in poop all day? Potty training can't come soon enough.

5. "No, you can't drive my car" he's got about 14 more years to go for that...but would gladly take us for a spin if I let him. He's two, going on twenty-two.

6. Please don't eat that off of the ground. Yes, you did just throw it there, but let's leave it there now that it has 10 different species of germs growing on it. On the floor of the children's museum? Then there's no less than one household flu included as a bonus.

7. No, you don't need your shoes on to go to bed.  Cute. Shoes to bed? Good idea. Mommy should put on her pre-baby stilettos to go to bed because that's probably the only time they'll ever be worn again before you go to college. 

8. No, you can't have ice cream for dinner. Dream on, kiddo.

9. Yes, you have to take a bath. Usually this is in response to "No bath, play toys" - Is this only a boy thing? Or all toddlers? The kid played all day...a bath is non negotiable.

10. I LOVE YOU.  I don't care how many times I repeated myself with any/all of the things above. Saying I love you is as non-negotiable as a bath! Kids need to hear it and moms need to say it.
