Shark tail + mermaid tail blankets you guys! How awesome are these from a cool little mom-and-pop business.

#mermaid   #shark   #kids   #giftideas   #handmade   #blanket   #smallbusiness  +Cool Mom Picks 
If your kids dream of being mermaids, they will flip over these mermaid tail blankets we just discovered. If they dream of being sharks? Well, take a look!

The first ever workout pants designed to actually burn more calories. Pretty amazing. 

#exercise   #fitness   #workout  +RXACTIVE +Cool Mom Picks  #fitnesstips  
Can pants actually help you burn more calories and spend less time at the gym? We tried out the new RXActive resistance activewear to see if it was true.

The whole Girl Scouts $100,000 controversy has really stuck with me this week. Here are some thoughts on trying to be more open to more kinds of people. Except for bigots. Not open to them. 

+Cool Mom Picks +Girl Scouts of Western Washington  #girlscouts   #tolerance   #diversity   #lgbt   #transgender   #lgbtrights   #parenting   #children  
In this week's Thinking: Parent column, Liz has a lot to say about the Girl Scouts, bigotry, discrimination, compassion...and just loving our kids.

Trix, Lucky Charms, and other kid-favorite GM cereals now being made without artificial flavors and colors. That's huge news, especially for kids with food dye sensitivities.

If you have kids with food dye sensitivities, you'll want to read about General Mills removing artificial colors and flavors from all of their cereals.
