Family Friday: GrandPro Tennis Sneaker

These men’s sneakers were getting rave reviews in the comment section over at Corporette for looking great and being comfortable. For more casual offices, these say “I am dressed casually, but also am professional,” and for the weekends they say “I am dressed down but still care about my appearance.” Are they the most stylish sneakers in the world? No, but if I bought them for my husband he’d shrug and then wear them into the ground, which is all the excitement I can get from him when it comes to shoes. Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Sneaker

Family Friday: Soft Booster Seat

When your kid gets too old for a high chair or a booster seat with straps (we liked this one from Graco), this booster seat from Prince Lionheart is a great option. We like it so much that we’re on our second one — we got the first when our son was 6, and now that he’s almost 8, we’ve bought a replacement. (The first seat got a crack on it, but I think that two years isn’t too bad, considering that he uses it two to three times a day, every day.) My son is about 4 feet tall, so he’s not really too short to sit on a chair without anything on top — and yes, he’s 8 years old — but the extra height helps, and he likes the slightly squishy seat more than the wooden chairs we have at the table. The booster is pretty easy to clean and comes in brown, dark gray, pink, blue, orange, and green. (Not all colors are available at Amazon right now.) It’s $24–$35 and Prime eligible, and it offers free returns on everything but the brown. Prince Lionheart Soft Booster Seat

Family Thursday: Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap

bathtub fingerpaint soapI chanced upon these sold individually at Target for something like $1-$3 each, and bought the three primary colors. Of course I realized too late that my youngest absolutely adores them: I can’t find them in any Target right now. Amazon comes through as always, though, but for a bit more — this pack of 6 is $29 at Amazon (and almost sold out, but I’m showing it because it was the exact label that ours had). This other pack of 6 is only $24 — we’ve ordered but haven’t used them yet. Pictured: Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap

Family Friday: Weelicious: 140 Fast, Fresh, and Easy Recipes

Over the years, I’ve gotten a number of family cookbooks, and this one from Weelicious is one of my favorites (and her newsletter is also wonderful). I have one that wanted me to make pasta for 12, and another that told me to cook parsnips, which just aren’t readily available where we live. This one had the fewest problems like that and the most reliably yummy food that my whole family enjoys. At Amazon, it’s $15 for the hardcover and $8 for Kindle (includes audio/video). Weelicious: 140 Fast, Fresh, and Easy Recipes

Family Friday: Foogo Insulated Stainless Steel 10-Ounce Food Jar

A couple of weeks ago, my son stopped wanting sandwiches in his lunch, and he never wants to buy lunch at school — so I bought this Thermos container to send him with hot food. I picked it because it has great reviews at Amazon, and it’s worked really well. My son has brought pasta, mini pancakes, and rice & beans to school so far, and all of them have stayed warm. (It’s supposed to keep food warm for five hours, and he eats his lunch about four hours after I pack it. Before I put the food in, I boil water and put it in the container to warm it up.) It’s small enough to fit in his lunch bag, and it’s dishwasher safe. There are several colors and designs, ranging from $12.84 to $17.99, and it’s eligible for Prime. (Thermos also makes Foogo straw bottles and sippy cups). Thermos Foogo Insulated Stainless Steel 10-Ounce Food Jar

Organizing Thursday: Maze Wide White Geometric Bookcase

I’ve talked before about how I use IKEA Expedit shelves to store toys and books, and today I thought we’d feature this fun maze bookcase from Crate & Barrel — specifically from Crate & Kids, which is new (kind of). Land of Nod, which has been owned by Crate & Barrel since 2001, has now become Crate & Kids. This maze-like design is a lot of fun, and the advantage it has is that you can store a lot of things of different sizes and even still use toy storage bins. It’s 47.75″ wide and 32″ high and can be combined with the Tall Maze Bookcase. It’s $399. Maze Wide White Geometric Bookcase
