Posted by: | Comments (7)

UPDATE! Congratulations SUSAN you are the winner of the Sports Years Memory Book. Please check your inbox.

MomAgenda Sports Years Memory Book

Do you see all those ribbons? That is just a portion of the items I have collected from my youngest daughter’s past few years as a swimmer. I have been storing it all in a shopping bag and telling myself that one day I was going to organize it neatly. Lucky for me, the team at momAgenda is making “one day” get here a lot faster. They have a new product that is just for busy Sports Moms like you and me – we don’t have time to create elaborate scrapbooking layouts but we want to keep all our athlete’s important memories together in one place – so enter Sports Years.

Each hardcover Sports Years Memory book contains 14 expandable 11″x11″  folder pages for you to keep things like team photos, newspaper clippings, mementos and the like for each year in one place. Then for each one of the folders you can add as many details as you wish – the year, sport, photo of your child, position they played, teammates, accomplishments, and the list goes on.

I have a lot of work to do still, but just knowing that one of my favorite photos of her first championship meet is safe and easy to find, is a step in the right direction!

If you are a Mom who loves the Disney parks, does a lot of traveling with your child’s sports team or coordinates team travel, Disney invites you to apply for their Walt Disney World Moms Panel. 

Until September 14 or until they reach 14,000 applications, you can register at Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

We were actually in Orlando this summer on our family vacation, but we didn’t actually visit any of the parks this time, except for a a great afternoon walk around Downtown Disney. Since I have not been to one of the actual parks in the past 24 months, I do not qualify, but I am sure someone in my reading audience does! So if  you are a Disney parks “guru” put in your application, you just might be one of the next Disney Moms!

P&G “Kids 2012” Olympics Commercial

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Normally when I am watching TV when it comes time for the commercials I get up, walk around, refill my water, or fold a load of laundry – EXCEPT when watching the Superbowl or the OLYMPICS! During last night’s Opening Ceremony I didn’t dare move at commercial time – I might miss something!  There were quite a few really good commercials (which I will be highlighting during the next few weeks) and I lost track of how many brought tears to my eyes. Here is one of my favorites, so far:

Procter & Gamble has got the number of Moms around the world! They have figured out how to make us bawl – out of pride, love, and watching our own experiences as Moms flash before our eyes. As I watched their latest commercial in their Olympic series – Kids 2012 – the reality of my own journey as a sports mom pulled at my hearts strings as I sat watching the Opening Ceremonies with my 16 year old son (who was born during the Opening Ceremonies in Atlanta) who is now a High School & Summer League swimmer, my 14 year old daughter who just retired from a life long career as a gymnast and is now embarking on a new journey as a cheerleader, and my 10 year old daughter who swims year round, but loves just about every sport she tries. At that moment I felt blessed, proud, and wanted to stop time!! As much as I love being a sports Mom, I don’t want them to grow up – they will always be little kids to me!

Well played Procter & Gamble.
