Get your kids to eat fruits & veggies with the Copy-Kids DVD!


Captain Fussybuckets loves most fruits.  He never was a veggie fan, even back in the baby food days.  Now that he's three, things have not changed.  We try and we're lucky if he takes one bite of any kind of vegetable.  He DOES like salad, but that's only because there's Ranch on it.  ;)

When I heard about the Copy-Kids DVD, I was really eager to try it with him!  He was so excited to get it and he asks to [...]

Disney’s “The Secret World of Arrietty”

The newest Disney movie will be coming out on February 17th!  "The Secret World of Arrietty" is a movie based on the book – "The Borrowers" by Mary Norton.  Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler) is a tiny 14 year old who lives with her parents (voices of Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (voice of Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human [...]

Welcome to my new little home!

Well, it all happened more quickly than I anticipated, thanks to the awesome Krystal!  Life With Captain Fussybuckets is now a WordPress blog! I am learning the ins and outs of WP but I do love it!  If you look around, you'll notice that some things are a bit "off" and I'm working hard to fix them all.  If you click on a link within a post, it will probably take you nowhere, but I'm working on that, too!  This is a great change for the blog and I'm excited to have you here!  Get ready for some new [...]

If this page is down…

If this page is down over the next few days, it means that we are feverishly working to move the blog over to a self hosted domain on WordPress.  (Well, not me, exactly, but  my friend Krystal, who designed the blog.)  If you are an avid blog reader, you know that many bloggers do this to protect their blogs and add a bit more variety!  So if I'm quiet for a few days, just bear with me, it's just a blog growth spurt!  :)  I'll be back!   Thanks for being a fan…I shall return!

Birthday Chronicle Review

I have been looking for a great way to remember what was going on around the time that the boys' were born. Sure, there's always information on the internet, but what if you had something that compiled everything important from the day that you or your child was born?     Casie, a work at home mom of six, and a blogger, has come up with the Birthday Chronicle, that outlines all of the major stories from any birthday until December 2010!  This is a fabulous way to remember and celebrate the day.  It makes a great gift, too!

Never cheap out on furniture!

A few years ago, we had been married for two years and were still sitting on hand me down furniture.  We both had a job and were expecting our first baby.  We also had a house dog, who loved to curl up on the couch and bring dust and pollen inside, so we wanted new couches that were allergy friendly and were also easy to clean up.  We searched a few places, but really couldn't spend a ton of money on new couches.  A few friends of ours had good experiences at Big Lots.  I know, we thought exactly [...]

Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

Today (January 24th) is National Peanut Butter Day!  (yeah, I had no idea either, until I read it on Facebook and went to verify it!)  So, to celebrate, Captain Fussybuckets and I made Peanut Butter Bars!   My mom used to make these scrumptious things called Peanut Butter Balls and if you'd like to make them into a ball, go right ahead!  They're more grabbable that way, but well, sometimes I tend to be lazy in the kitchen, so bars it is!  :)     Peanut Butter Balls/Bars   First, heat up these ingredients in a sauce pan on [...]

Our New Favorite App … and it’s FREE!

My hubby loves music.  He loves making weird sounds with his voice and Captain Fussybuckets loves it, as well.  So, the new hot app in our house?  VidRhythm.  You first choose the song you want to recreate, and then a theme.  After that, you are prompted to record a few sound bytes and when you're done, and it creates a video for you!  Captain Fussybuckets loves this app because he can do it by himself.  While it was probably not made with 3 year olds in mind, he loves this thing!  Watch this sweet video he made with Daddy's [...]
