Greetings!  

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been playing Michael Jackson non-stop!  My daughter jumped in the car the other day and said, “Guess what mommy? My friend and I have the same favorite song, Billie Jean!”  Although most of the world is mourning MJ, it warms my heart to see a new generation of children enjoying his great songs, innovative dancing & incredible performances simply because we are reminiscing.
 
We hope you are enjoying your summer so far.  If you are like most, you have tons of birthday parties and showers to attend (or not).  Avoid running to the big box stores for long lines and boring presents by letting your fingers do the walking.. across your keyboard 😉  Go online or give us a call for a unique Yahzi Rose gift.

  • Your local library is sure to have a great program.  Some offer attraction tickets, toys, and even carnivals as rewards. 

 

  • With Borders you receive a book at a 50% discount after completing their challenge.
  • Half Price Books gives kids a $3 shopping card for every book read for 15 minutes!
  • Book Adventure was created by Sylvan Learning Center. Here, kids earn prizes by completing quizzes online.

    Greetings! 

    Pull your feet out of the snow (be it virtual or real) and get stepping!  Spring is a time of renewal, new starts and a new attitude.  Amidst the doom & gloom of the newspapers & nightly news there are great things happening everywhere.  If there are children in your household you know that it doesn’t take long for tears or a sad face to change to laughter.  Children have the natural ability to find the good, fun or humor in the very next moment.  This is a lesson that our little ones should sit us down and teach!  No matter what is going on in our lives or the world, there is always something very close to smile at or be thankful for. 
     
    2009 has started off well for Yahzi Rose with a record number of online sales! 
    Thank you, hugs & kisses to our new customers, subscribers, and our loyal little ones.

    Sunday May 10, 2009  
    Celebrate the mommies!  Don’t forget to include the ‘other-mothers’ that the world couldn’t do without: Aunts, godmothers, grands and babysitters.  I personally love gifts ; ) but I think most moms would just love a day off!  Suggestions you say?
    ~ Peace & Quiet!  LOL
    ~ There are wonderful places like Full Plate that offer a week’s worth of prepared home-cooked meals.
    ~ Can someone say MAID?  A highly recommended Green Housekeeping service would make any mother smile.
    ~ What about a good old-fashioned date? One that requires absolutely no planning on the mom’s part.  Everything from babysitting to dessert is taken care of.
     
    Let us know how you celebrated!

    YRDecember, 2008 

     

    Dear Kysha, 

    I love to receive gifts, don’t you?  I also love making or shopping for what I think will bring a smile to someone’s face.   During the holiday season the line between joyfully giving and consumerism is hard to find.  This season, our family is trying to find balance in pleasing our kids, the economic threat, latest & greatest gadgets, what is necessary vs. indulgence, parental guilt, and the need for a little guilty pleasure 😉   I think what helps darken the dividing line is your intent.  I ask myself, can we afford this, can we get it used, is it wasteful, do they have enough, who am I supporting?  Our children learn best from what we do rather than  what we constantly say.  Let’s make an effort to give gifts based on joy instead of guilt and spend where are dollars will make the most difference.  
     
    Let us know how your gift-giving is taking shape…
