When my family travels one thing we love to do is eat at unique restaurants. My 3 boys are great eaters and I can always count on them to try new things while on vacation. But while on vacation we tend to indulge in foods we wouldn't normally eat at home. And vegetables are not on the top of the priority list!

Luckily I recently found a great product that will help add fiber to the kids' diet, at home and while on vacation - Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. These are little penguin shaped gummies that my kids seem to love! Three of the gummies adds 6 grams of fiber to the kids' daily diet. That's a lot of fiber when you take into account how much broccoli or leafy greens need to be eaten to consume the same amount!

The gummies are similar to the fruit snacks you find at the supermarket. But these are packed with great nutritional value. Plus they are sugar and gluten free! From now on Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies will be on my packing list when we head to Disney World or anywhere else. It's one way I can be sure my kids digestive system stays healthy during vacation!

Thanks Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies!

If you want to win a bottle of Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies "Like" the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/fibergummies, leave a note on the wall that Fairytale Journeys sent you, and comment on the blog here to enter. A random winner will be chosen at February 3 at 2:00 pm EST.

*Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies provided me with a sample to review, but the opinion listed here is my own.
 
I thought I'd create a quick blog post that contains a recap of important links on thepinkearpixie.com. This will make it easier to find what you need!

Picture
Woody. If you don't recognize the snazzy toy cowboy doll then you've probably been living in the dusty, dark corner under Sid's bed, among the forgotten toys.

Who doesn't know Woody?!

Woody, who said "That wasn't flying! That was... falling with style!"

Woody, who's banter with Buzz Lightyear will go down in cartoon history.

Woody. Everyone's favorite sheriff.

Can you imagine a Toy Story movie without Woody? What if instead of a cowboy sheriff, Pixar/Disney had decided to make Woody in to a pirate? What would he be called - Woody Leg? Wooden? Think Cap'n Jack Sparrow in a miniature version, same attitude but less rum.

Instead of: "Listen, Lightsnack, you stay away from Andy. He's mine, and no one is taking him away from me." He'd say: "Arrgh, Lightsnack, ye scurvy dog. Ye stay away from me mate Andy. He be mine, and ye won't be takin' 'em away from me."

"What chance does a toy like me have against a Buzz Lightyear action figure?" would become "Ahoy, what chance do a pirate like me 'ave against a Buzz Lightyear action figure? Ye'll ne'er get me buried booty!"

"Wait a minute, I just lit a rocket... Rockets explode!" would translate to "Arggh, wait just a bloody minute, Me just lit a rocket... Rockets explode, argh!"

"There's a snake in my boot!" would take on a whole new meaning...."Thar's a termite in my peg leg!"

The idea of changing Woody's character to a pirate is actually pretty entertaining. The possibilities are endless! But since Woody is such a likable character ... I'm glad he's who he is.

There's only one Woody. Substitutions not accepted.

Now that my website has officially turned over to thepinkearpixie.com I will be making a few changes to the Facebook page.
  1. The profile picture that you've become accustomed to - sweet Minnie and handsome Mickey - will be going away from the Facebook page sometime within the next week. My new logo will be taking its place. Please take note of this so you do not overlook the posts from me!

  2. This week I announced that I was no longer doing business through private message on Facebook. Frankly, it's a poor business habit - just ask anyone who has a business. I want to keep my personal profile separate from my fan page. It's still very easy to get in contact with me! There are various forms throughout thepinkearpixie.com where you can get in touch with me.
