Go ahead…let them get wet! #MyMayu {Giveaway}

If you have a toddler at home, especially a boy…you will understand.

We live in a rain forest! No, not like the Amazon, but along the coast of British Columbia. We lovingly call Raincouver our home and sometimes refer to it as the “Wet Coast”.

Wet grass

It’s all good! We love the rain and how it keeps our landscape lush and allows us to have the fortune of being at the beach and in the mountains all in one day. People flock from other countries to come pay us a visit and quite often, they fall in love with it as much as we do, so they decide to plant their roots here as well.

With our abundance of rain, comes…yep you guessed it, PUDDLES! A kid’s natural playground and a parents aid in accumulating laundry.

Rain boots are mandatory in our life and having an extra pair or two definitely come in handy for varying degrees of wet.

Tall rainboots that come to your knees are the best tool for splashing in big puddles and stomping around in little streams, but when you have a toddler…it can be fairly difficult sometimes to keep those bad boys on. They just seem to slip off, no matter how many layers of socks you have on.

We recently discovered MyMayu. These AMAZING boots not only keep our little Dude’s feet and pant legs dry, but the drawstrings at the tops and ankles, make it diffucult for him to pull them off in the van and when he gets carried (this won’t last much longer, he’s getting too heavy), they won’t slip off!

MyMayu boots are available in Play Boots (which we have) and also Explorer Boots.

Play Boots are light-weight and ideal for shallow puddles or urban walks. They have soft soles that are good for all seasons and are easily cleaned and dried so your little ones can get back out exploring right away. These boots are also great for playing in sand boxes! No more sand in their shoes and if something sharp is buried underneath, their little feet are protected.

Explorer Boots are made with waterproof materials and the seams are sealed, allowing your kiddos to go all out in the biggest, deepest puddles that they can find! Also soft-soled, with drawstrings at the ankles and knees to keep from falling off and water to get in over top.

Liners are also available for the boots to add extra warmth during the colder days outside and if your child requires orthotics, these boots will accommodate them.

Yellow boots

Pair these fantastic boots with a Muddy Buddy and your kiddos will be virtually water-proof!

MyMayu is a Canadian company with products made fairly in Mexico. The materials contain no BPA or PVC and are vegan. The soles can be recycled!

Back to School…time to label EVERYTHING! {Giveaway}

Our daughter starts Kindergarten this Fall.

We had the orientation back in June and they sent us home with the “shopping list” of all the gear that she’ll need once the school year begins.

There is a lot of stuff that we need to get and we are supposed to put her name on everything.

When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!

image

Her shoes (indoor & outdoor), her rain clothes, her lunchbag (and all the containers inside), her gym strip and bag, her back pack, and all of her supplies (including each and every crayon, marker, and pencil crayon).

When I was in school, my name didn’t appear on anything. But if it was required, the good ol’ trusty black permanent marker was pulled out and my name was printed clearly in bold, black letters so everyone knew that it was mine. But even then, my identity could be erased with a single stroke from another black marker to make it belong to someone else.
