Well slap me silly

I am surely dating myself here when I confess that I had me one impressive collection of slap bracelets circa 1989. They were about a buck each at CVS as I recall, and it was nearly as savvy an allowance expense as four games of Donkey Kong or a few cans of New Coke....

Sansa Fuze+ lets you walk and rock at the same tme

My kids are already clamoring over all the toy catalogs that have been coming in the mail, looking wide-eyed page by page at the potential holiday bounty. They're still on the young side to be begging for an electronic device, but portable media players of any kind...

Comic books go green and ultra-portable

I had a boyfriend in college who had boxes upon boxes of his "favorite" comic books. (Which ones were his favorites? All of them!) I found it a little weird, but hey, collectors are kind of different, right?Well, now I have a son who wants to collect comic books. I...

Speakers that are music to a mom’s ears

My son is really into music and I can usually hear it blasting from his room, but the other day I was screaming and screaming...I mean requesting that he make his presence known.No response. I swung open his door and there he was, rocking out with his iPod, headphones...

A math app for ninjas

After hours of coaxing without success, I gave up begging my 7 year-old sons to practice math drills on a worksheet and I headed to my iPad. I knew there must be a math app that played like a video game to keep him engaged. And wouldn't you know it, I found it. Math...

How this free app will change the way you make your grocery shopping list.

If you're like me, you scramble to text your partner the items you need as you think of them, which makes for a pretty disorganized shopping list. But since discovering the AnyList app in our Recipe Rescue Facebook group, my grocery shopping list is the most organized...

Whether you forgot to grab a Valentine's Day card for the kids (or to the grandparents "from" the kids?), have a Galentine pal who would love to her from you today, or are thinking about sending a sexy "shape of things to come" message (ahem) to your sweetheart before...

Is MoviePass good for families? We tried it! | Damn you, Facebook Ads series

When I first heard about MoviePass on Facebook, I thought it sounded a little too good to be true. All the movies you could possibly see, for just $9 each month? That's crazy, considering how much it currently costs us to see movies in the theater with four kids (or a...

Bring your laptop. Leave your charger.

I am almost ashamed to admit the number laptop cords I've gone through over the last few years, but suffice it to say I'm on the lookout for better options. What's really cool is those cords may be obsolete sometime soon. Especially with innovations like solar laptop...

7 of the best shopping sites go mobile

Ever tried to go clothes shopping for yourself with kid(s) in tow? Between toting a toddler while carrying unwieldy hangers, and then attempting to catch a mannequin in mid-air because your little one has pulled its skirt down therefore making it fall over (yes, it...

The stylish stylus

Having always been a gadget girl, I remember experiencing sheer joy in getting my first business-oriented electronic device - a Palm Pilot. The black and white pixilated screen, the cradle you'd rest it in every night to sync, and who could forget the stylus pen. It...

Wee Web – Now a virtual baby record book

Suffice it to say that baby record keeping is not my forte. With four kids to keep track of, I figure it's pretty good if I can remember their birth dates, let alone remind myself to record their first tooth or smile. But thanks to the new features at Wee Web, I'm...

The cat in the app

For the past few months, my kids have been obsessed with an app that has them yelling, singing and -- yes -- screaming at a cat who then repeats everything back to them in his own weird voice. Harmless fun but no redeeming educational value. Or so I thought.Then, at...

Not your grandma’s adorable kitchen radio

I fondly remember the little plastic radio that sat on my great-grandmother's shelf, buzzing and humming while she baked. I don't remember any actual music or discussion, mind you-- just an annoying buzz. But the useless thing sure was adorable, even covered with...

An app to help you remember whats-his-name

I know all the tricks that are supposed to help you remember people's names: Say it within 10 seconds of meeting someone, come up with a mnemonic, or what I most often resort to, never, ever use their name in conversation.Well here's one more trick: A new iPhone app...

Avoiding homework excuses with a cool lap desk

Not sure if it is procrastination or truth, but my tween son says he can hear his younger brothers' voices through the walls. Their bedrooms do share a wall, so I tend to think he has a point. To eliminate this loud distraction--or at minimum the excuse--while he...
