PapiBlogger and Mamá Contemporánea are getting set for the national launch of the 2010 Holiday Gift Guide this coming Monday. Many thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors, including Fisher-Price, Baby Abuelita, Lowe's, Kolcraft, George Foreman Evolve Grill and Sony.
The Great Recession that many of us are still slogging through has taught me something that is critical for all parents: you can't rely on one career or college degree to live.
Sprint joined forces with Laura Posada a.k.a. "La Mujer 4G," to provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour into one of her family's epic moments, the 2010 Jorge Posada Celebrity Basebowl Tournament, held at Chelsea Piers 300 New York. Laura and her husband New York Yankee catcher Jorge Posada rallied up close friends and family for an afternoon of sports, fun and a continued commitment to raising awareness of Craniosynostosis, a condition in which the bones of the skull fuse together prematurely causing a growth disturbance.
My family and I want to thank all of you who participated in this year's PapiBlogger Halloween Kid Photo Contest co-presented by our sponsors Sony and McDonald's. My children, Jonathan, Elena and Briani poured through numerous photo entries and really enjoyed the process of using their critical thinking skills to pick this year's winners.
If you're like most parents with babies or toddlers, you're having a tough time brushing their teeth. As the father of three, I know. I've been through this parenting stage three times and I've tried everything in the book to get my kids to cooperate including jokes, songs and other silly things I'm too embarrassed to mention here.
My two-year-old Briani, for example, who on the very same week she first ever decided to create a mural with her Crayola crayons on our dining room wall also used her artistic talent to “paint” our hallway’s wall with her poop.
My wife and two older children Jonathan and Elena are going to award a Sony Bloggie to the best Halloween 2010 kid costume photo that is submitted to us between today and election day November 2. A second and third place prize of McDonald's Arch Cards will also be awarded.
In the spirit of crazy parenting moments I’m giving away a Sony Bloggie to the person who can tell us the most disgusting thing that any of their children ever did when they were young. PapiBlogger will pick three finalists and put them up for a vote online with a poll. The entries must be posted to this story.
A couple months ago I wrote that I was having a tough time getting my two-year-old Briani to sleep in her crib. I had bed broken my two older kids so even though my wife was against it, I thought I would be able to persist enough that I would manage to officially get our toddler to sleep in her bed.
Well, it turns out Briani won this battle. After two years of battling my wife and toddler about this issue I gave in to her.
As I mentioned in part one of this two part series, I take treat my kids’ hygiene habits very seriously and not just because we’re at the start of the flu season. Strong hygiene habits are a year round practice that I believe can be life saving so here are some of my favorite home grown tricks I use with my kids
