Book and Bear

We received a Book and Bear box last month, and the polar bear that came with it is now one of Robbie’s favorite plush toys.
Robbie knew that the bright blue box that arrived in the mail was for him as soon as he saw it.

We opened it together, and we first found adoption papers for the bear. By then we didn’t know what kind of bear he was getting. Book and Bear provides a box with a seasonal book, and a plush animal that goes with it. Book and Bear is a subscription box and an online community for parents and their children 3 to 8 years old.

We removed the paper, and found the cutest polar bear! Robbie was super excited to know we were going to stuff it, and that he was going to add the special purple heart with the legend Best Friend inside it.
There was a little craft included in the pack. Each box comes with the plush animal, a book, and an activity for the children and their parents. We worked first on the little craft, which was a little polar bear.

We had so much fun when we started stuffing the bear. Robbie made sure I stuffed the arms and legs right, and then he helped out with the rest of the stuffing, and put the special heart of his new best friend inside. These boxes are not approved for children under 3 years old.
The book included in this box is Hush Little Polar Bear by Jeff Mack. This book is perfect to be paired with a plush polar bear.

The bear has a zip tie on its back, and a velcro opening.

The lovely book and bear included in the box have become some of Robbie’s favorites. He spends time with the polar bear, and sleeps with it every night. I even caught him saying “te amo” to it! The sweetest thing! I think building the bear has helped Robbie’s connection with the bear.
We were thrilled to have collaborated with Book and Bear, and to have received this free box.
You can subscribe and choose the plan that most accommodates to your needs. If what you’re looking for is not a subscription, you can go to their store to get just one Book and Bear box to try them out, or to gift away.

February 9 is National Pizza Day!

Hello, hello!
Had you heard about this before? Does anyone really need an excuse to enjoy some pizza? I do!
I loved the idea of celebrating anything. As a family, it gives us a reason to do something together, and enjoy some quality time. Robbie, my son, loves pizza! He’d always asks for salami, but he really doesn’t mind.
My husband, Robert, could have pizza for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time! He loves baking it, too, which is something I really like. Homemade pizza takes effort, and you get to enjoy it with your loved ones.

Robbie smiles big when he’s about to have some pizza. #NationalPizzaDay

Le husband has been trying to perfect his Detroit style pizza, and Robbie and I really can’t complain about this process.

Celebrate National Pizza Day, or find any other excuses to celebrate with your loved ones. Go to National Today to find a holiday for today, or any day!

What’s your favorite topping?
