What's Happening with Jack?
Iain Loves Baby Jack July 01 2015
Being a CEO and six years old, I tend to work with other interesting kids. This here is Iain and he is a six year old that adores theatre; so much that he has a Facebook page called Iain Loves Theatre. He is the youngest theatre critic around and recently worked with Mr. Perez Hilton to report live on the Red Carpet at the Tony Awards!!! Our friend Thebabyguynyc told us about him on his page for a kid's product review --- seriously, he's a mini Jamie Grayson ---- and we got in touch to see if he would like to review our loveys.
Iain informed us of his future trip to Georgia to visit his cousins - a 14 month old (Bella) a set of 6 month old twins and Quad 6 month old cousins. So. Many. Babies!!!! Of course we sent them a few to introduce before he headed back to NYC.
Check out what Iain has to say about our Baby Jack educational loveys. He personally has the Lion and at age six, still snuggles with it at night just like I do. I told you, our loveys have longevity. Get yours today at babyjackco.com or click the SHOP button above ^^^
My kids do not get much tablet time as they tend to agree on a TV show to watch together which makes after school screen time manageable. I'd like to think in my mommy dream world that after school they miss each other so much that they just want to get along, hang out - not fight or scream or kick or punch or hit. Typically this is the case but it is SPRING BREAK which makes life working at home interesting. Of course after they have alone time, they migrate closer to each other which makes my heart happy. #siblinglove
I decided to reduce work hours to give my kids a lot of attention in the mornings and get out to enjoy Wisconsin Spring weather - all 50 degrees of it. Park dates, play dates, museum trips and out to eat kept #CEOJack and #VPBailey busy all week and in need of alone time in the afternoons. Hello Watch And Roll.
My kids are very into technology. I myself am a tech mom and love my devices so they obviously want to emulate that. We put their tablets inside a Watch And Roll holder and it makes life easier since the kids can hold onto it or we can strap it to the car / stroller or just simply hang it for background noise while they play. I played some fun music to inspire their creativity during their free play time. (Superhero music for Jack and Princess songs for Bailey)
Jack is a gamer - one that is better than my husband. Currently we are very into LEGO everything, Marvel and Mario Brothers which made it so easy to show him KidoodleTV on his tablet.
I have spent many amazing minutes playing LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Harry Potter with this boy and couldn't be more proud of his skills. I understand many do not give their kids access to video games but we try to provide all kinds of stimulation for our children and something we can all enjoy. Also, I secretly wish he takes on my love for Harry Potter and I can have someone to share this interest with!!
Whenever Jack needed a break from his sister, he would get screen time watching a Mario Brothers cartoon or playing Angry Birds. Since he is a tech kid, we have to limit his time and KidoodleTV allows that with a kid timer. This feature is perfect as we can give it in 30 min increments to ensure he doesn't get overload. Sorry kid, the timer says so. Let's turn it off. There was no arguing!
Bailey is a dreamer. She is the most unique and loving little girl who loves everything her brother has and also her Ponies, Barbies and any animal she comes in contact with. She is getting ready for her 4th birthday party so I downloaded Cinderella II on her tablet and she was consumed with it in the car ride, easily strapping he Watch And Roll to my headrest. This enabled her hands free to play/eat and not drop the tablet. Her KidoodleTV choices of course consist of My Little Pony episodes and Pound Puppies. It's exciting to see all the shows that I grew up with are available for her to watch for only $4.99 a month on this ap. I often hand it to her when I have a conference call needing uninterrupted quiet. Again, this KidoodleTV ap has a timer and kids listen to their tablet over mom. It is by far my favorite feature to avoid a meltdown!!
As you can see, both of these products are CEOJack and VPBailey approved and I would love to hear what you and your little ones did to enjoy Spring Break and get a chance to win a Watch And Roll of your own along with 6 months free subscription to KidoodleTV.

The Birthday Poster Fit For A CEO February 09 2015 12 Comments
Celebrating birthdays in our home takes planning. To me, there is love in the details and I tend to go all out with favors, balloons and décor. It is my standard to have a certain theme and then coordinate all the little things around it. This year, Jack chose to celebrate his sixth birthday with everything Ninja Turtles.
Party masks, a live box turtle feeding and martial arts ninja training was my plan and I have to say that it was executed flawlessly and was enjoyed by all. More details on the day of the party coming soon! Today, I was to focus on how emotional I am every time my child turns a year older...
One product that I saw months back at a baby industry tradeshow was from our friends Sticky Bellies. Sticky Bellies creates those milestone stickers that you put on a baby onesie (or belly bump) to capture the pictures every month. They are my favorite images of Bailey as she was growing up as you can really see the changes in her first year.
This year Sticky Bellies came out with #thebirthdayposter. The Birthday Poster is a perfect way to capture all the amazing qualities of your child and favorites during his/her year. It also captures height and weight to see how much they have grown over the years and to prove that they are not little anymore.
The day I received The Birthday Poster in the mail and opened the roll, I was emotional. I was reflecting on the six years as a parent and how far we (my husband and I ) as a couple have come. Our oldest was turning six and this means that in ten years he will drive! Look how FAST six years has gone, imagine the next ten! **panic mode**
After avoiding my emotions for days and finally putting thought into all the amazing things this boy can do and what a great kid he is, I sat down with my husband and together we colored. We joked about who colored better and had competitions (Rock, Paper, Scissor) of who would color what. Honestly, I didn't think he would sit down and color with me but it was a great moment as a couple; as parents. At that moment, The Birthday Poster was more than a milestone maker, it was reassurance for the both of us that we are doing a great job.
Fast forward to the day of celebrating our #smallestCEO, #CEOJack. He was elated to see how "tall" he was and thought it was cool that he could actually read words from the poster and got to sign his name. His first real autograph!!! Sticky Bellies The Birthday Poster will be cherished for years to come, and hopefully this autograph will be worth money some day!
Now is your chance to WIN The Birthday Poster by Sticky Bellies for your child's next birthday!!!
