Aden + Anais's long-awaited muslin crib sheets have hit stores. The Right Start has in every color, seven in all. These crib sheets are made of the same fully certified organic, 100% muslin cotton that the blankets are made from.
Blake calls for me: Mom, come see this?!?Me: Ok, I'm on my way buddy!
Blake: This is my car trophy.Me: Wow Blake! I love it!!! How'd you make that?!?
Blake: Like this, let's make a video.
And we did make a little video with my iphone, telling how he built it and why he built it and who liked the cars he used in the trophy. And who those people are in his life and then a quick- The End. Bye. Bye.
He watched the video a lot. He likes watching all the videos of him on my iphone or one of Elyse where she's making this high pitched squeal. He plays that one over and over over, til I ask him kindly to pick a new video. ha ha ha
And every mama, should encourage their kids that what they've done is great- it will keep giving them the confidence to create.
All children are born as little artists....it's the growing up part that stops that artist from continuing to create, to play, to make believe.
Thanks a lot judgemental school mates, critical, negative teachers and all the "nay-sayers" of the world that like to put out the fire of others hopes, dreams, and things they've created.
I cheer you on. I cheer you on to cheer others on. Especially mamas and dads- become your little one's biggest cheerleader and watch them soar with the confidence and love.
huge hugs and tall lego trophies, kandee

I had heard about Cosatto coming to America at the last ABC Kids Expo, but never heard another word about. Now it appears that the first products are hitting stores. BuyBuyBaby has in the Cosatto On The Move Highchair, one of Cosatto's most compact and lightweight highchairs. Not sure what else is coming over, but I'd imagine we'll get strollers and hopfully the Hiccup.

(photo source: justpasteit )Jordan and Alani will officially be on Spring Break as of this afternoon...
and I am day-dreaming that we're all packing up to jump inside this picture....it's in the Maldives, or as I'm calling it: "The Mal-I-wish-could-dive-in-this-picture-ives"...
we really are in fact, not going here at all.. I don't even know how long it would take us to fly there.
OHHHHHHH.....you have no idea how I want to run and get inside this picture....
I'm just going to stare it at when I'm done typing this.....for a loooooooooooong time. Actually I just want to tape this picture right in front of my eyes so I can see it all day!
But I am going to "mind travel" there right now! Wanna come?
Let's pretend we just landed, got to our hotel that's fancy (we can make it as fancy as we want- we're imaging it)...we just put our bathing suits on and we are tan and we all have six-pack abs and stuff (hey, we can imagine whatever we want!)....
are you ready to dip your feet into the warm water...?!?!
Did you know that the Maldives is the lowest country on the planet, with an average ground level of about 4 feet 11 inches (1.5 meters) above sea level?
Alright, apparently my flight back to reality just landed and the only trip I'll be making right now, is to the laundry room to get my clothes out of the dryer.
I feel tan from our day in the sun don't you?!?
the smell of suntan lotion, your kandee
don't poke yourself in the eye...just poke these keys to hang out with me:

Blakey put my Ugg boots on and said he wanted to make a video....
(he was pretending to be me and pretending to "talk like me"- I guess he thinks my voice sounds like this:
watch and enjoy and I will put what he was actually saying below, so you can understand just what "Kandee Johnson is saying":
"I'm Kandee Johnson...
But do you like my new boots?
Actually I don't really have new boots.
I'm just Blakey's mama.
And I'm just this.
And I'm wearing her boots.
I love his little voice. I will miss it when he's a big man and I'll try to remember what he sounded like when he was just a little guy...
hope this made you smile....
hugs and big boots, kandee

He just got a hair cut, hair clipping, a hair shortening, a hair-length reduction, a hair chop, and edward scissorhands-ing.
I think he looks handsome.
He makes me laugh.
All the time.
Elyse runs to him with her arms up as soon as he come home from school, walks into the kitchen, or wherever she's at.
Blake's favorite room is Jordan's.
And Alani is always busy making him invitations to various imaginary parties she's having.
I worked out today- my Brazilian Boom Boom.
I'm sore already.
I took a break to type this from editing videos...
Breaktime is over...
hugs and haircuts, your kandee

I love giving my babies their baths...making them shiny and sparkly and smelling wonderful...
I love putting fresh, clean, cozy jammies on them...
Helping brush teeth til they are twinkly and shiny...
Getting little glasses of water...
Telling my girls what beautiful, precious lil' princesses they are....
Telling my Blakey and how I used to tell my Jordan...how brave and strong and what a great "super-hero" they are...
"I love you so big my arms can't open big enough!".....
Wrapping your babies in so much love that they fall asleep feeling cozy with love and blankies...
and watching them sleep so peacefully is such a sweet sight...
Call your little man, your super hero- and watch how he will shine.
Call your daughter beautiful - and watch her glow.
sweet dreams...now or later...but we're sending them and big good night hugs too....
come with me....
into my kitchen
because we're about to see what I gots in me GROCERY BAGS (man if I hit the "v" instead of "c" and typed "GROVERY" one more time....I was gonna....get real mad like!)
#1. Peeps be aksin' me to do a "grocery store haul" or a "what's in your grocery bags" video for a while...so yesterday after we returned home from our food shopping adventure at TRADER JOE'S, I thought....it's time.
#2. This is NOT my "real" grocery shopping trip - this was just stopping for "snack food and requests from Jordan" (who is a teenager and eats SOOOOO much food!). I really only went in to buy some MILK and left with wayyyyy more! ha ha ha I do my "real" grocery shopping at Whole Foods- because their fruits and veggies are wayyy better.
#3. Uh, I really don't have something to type for #3....so I'll just stop typing and let you start watching....
On with the show....or video or videy-show....
off to go make our Kale smoothies...because I always have kale...ha ha ha
grocery bags, kandee

In the bathroom (er, I mean make-over salon) at my moms.
Getting a make-over by Blakey and Alani- mostly Blakey though.
He really loved my mom's turquoise eyeshadow pencil from Urban Decay- as you can see by my forehead.
And he had quite a heavy hand with the NYX hot pink cream blush- which is "very long-lasting", so long-lasting in fact, that after I used cleanser and a face scrub...you could still see it!
"I feel pretty! Oh, so pretty!".....
and I felt more bee-yooooo-tee-full than all the women in the world...because I had been made over with love....lots of love....
hugs blue eyeliner on your forehead is so "in" for spring....kandee

Our friends over at L'ovedbaby have been in the news quite a bit lately. Tiffani Thiessen, Sarah Drew and Lindsay Price have all been photographed recently with their children in L'ovedbaby. And Beyonce even ordered a customized L'ovedbaby Overall for Blue Ivy, which was featured on The Insider.
The company shot to fame a few years ago when Halle Berry was spotted buying items for Baby Nahla.
I love lanterns.
I love polka dots and stripes.
I love little "pendant" garlands. (or whatever you call these)
I love the dreamy light that paper lantern emit...it's soft and you want to cuddle with it...
and the "pendant garlands", let 's just call them that....I can't decide if I want to hang them across the ceiling above the dining table, or decorate the kids play area with these all over the wall! hmmmm, well see.....
I'm just excited I have them to play around with...and they were like $3.99!
OTHER FUN USES FOR THESE:
*To make a fun headboard design with the garland for you kids rooms. (they had more boy-ish colors too)
* You could hang the "garland" around the top of the room, like a border.
*You could make a "hanging-art-mobile" out of clusters of the paper lanterns.
*You could personalize the pendant garland, by stenciling the letters of your child's name, or a sweet message like : home sweet home, sweet dreams or happiness on each pendant to spell out the words.
For a few bucks you can give any room a "spring" zing, with a little make-over dazzle!
Can't wait to show you our "before" and "fun-after".....
stripes and paper lanterns, your kandee
I can't believe my little lady is 14 months old already...it still feels like I was just making "pregnancy vlogs"....
And today, little Elysey-pie discovered how fun it is to get in and out of my shower. It was not wet in there...but we did spend about 45 minutes going in and out of the shower- she really loved it, even though my back was gettin' tired of bending over to help her climb in and out for the gazillionth time! ha ha ha
huge and who knew a shower could be as fun as Disneyland, your kandee

My computer was all weirdsmobile on me and upload my pictures all stripey and different colors- but I'm kinda' ok with it, because it looks kinda' artsy.
Now back to my b-log (that's my new b-boy name for "blog").
While Alani and Blake were at school...me, Elyse and favorite lil' 4 year old, Blakey...went on an adventure.
Blake wanted to go ride his "tooter" (AKA Scooter...and I will be sad the day he pronounces it "scooter".). So we packed up his "pirate", water bottle...seen here:
Ergo carrier, with Elyse in it, on my back.
This was our shadow.
He got a little tired, so he would stand on it and I would push him. This was his favorite. I would pretend he was the captain and I was his "first mate"...and I would ask him..."Captain, do we have clear sailing ahead?", he would reply, "Yes!" and I would continue asking him questions about sailing the high seas and say "Aye Aye Captain!"...he said that was his favorite.
My favorite part was when, we first started on our "adventure walk"...and I asked, "Are you ready to go on our adventure Blake?"....and he said:
"Yeah, maybe we'll find some gold!!!"....
Elyse fell asleep and Blake continued to melt my heart as we pretended to be pirates...and I told him how much fun I have with him....and his little face lit up and his little eyes got all squinty as he smiled so big at me....
Who can you tell today, how much fun you have with them? Let someone, know how much they mean to you today...
That's where the real gold is...the treasure you leave in someone's heart....
gold for you heart, kandee
