The Adventure Starts Here: #BoyMom Box Swap

#BoyMom Box Swap


Noah and I were really excited to participate in the #BoyMom Box Swap that Stephanie, Liz, and Sarah are hosting. There's something so fun about being a boy mom and I love the idea of celebrating that!  We got paired up with Julia (and Myles) over at The Everyday Momma.  While this was my first introduction to Julia and her blog, after reading and emailing back and forth with her, I quickly realized that we have a lot in common and that Noah and Myles have a lot of similar interests.  This made it super easy to shop for them. I think it must have helped Julia as well, because she hit it out of the park with the goodies she sent us too!  

First up... a wooden monster truck to assemble and paint, how perfect!  Not only does Noah love monster trucks, but he is clearly obsessed with crafts!  Yesterday we glued the wheels on and today we plan to paint the truck... perfect indoor activity since there's rain in the forecast.  


Next up was this Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad.  Since we've used (and loved) them in the past, Noah wanted to open and use it as soon as he saw it!  


Noah also really likes Look & Find books, so I think these Eye Found It cards will be very popular as well.  But as soon as Noah saw the bubble gun, he wanted to go out on the deck and give it a try.  While bubbles can get messy, this gun was really cool.  You fill up this little dish, then dip the bubble gun in there.  Then you just hold the trigger down for the fan to blow the bubbles.  This was one of the easiest bubble guns we've ever used and doesn't leave your kid (or yourself) with sticky hands!  It kept both of us entertained for quite a while... Noah with the bubbles and me taking bubble photos ;)


I was also super excited that Julia sent me a little something too.  I can't wait to try out the face mask!  Now head on over to The Everyday Momma to see what we sent Julia and Myles!

  5. Love his face when he was looking at the balloon gun! So glad that gun worked, we've had a few in the past and some work better than others! So glad he liked everything, it really wasn't hard at all to shop for him. Darn, he's so cute! So glad again we were paired together, us and the boys have too much in common!
