YouTube for kids!

My daughter and I spend a lot of time on YouTube. I was telling a friend about all the fun things we watch, and she wanted to know exactly what we watch, because she had never gone to YouTube.. especially with her kids!

So I thought I’d make a favorites list here, for all to enjoy:

Baby Sea Turtle Hatching
People swimming with Whale Sharks
Wild Sea Horse
Dancing, harmonica playing baby Elephant!
Jelly Fish
Kid Yoga Moves
Gymnastics Floor Exercises

Ballet Dancers

Irish Dancers

This is a short list. We just search on things that interest us at the moment. She finds it fascinating and it seems to encourage her to want to try something new, or learn something new. You need to be pretty careful on YouTube though. I’ve stopped searching on characters (wonder pets, dora etc). Most of them have been doctored to be adult humor that is not appropriate for your little one. Unfortunately, you usually don’t find this out in time! The videos are rated but I just like to avoid it altogether. Sports, animals, pets, songs, are generally fine and FUN to watch! We also like to watch games and songs that children in other parts of the world play and sing.

We won!

We’re the Mompreneurs of the Year! Thank you so much for your votes. We are just so happy to be honored in this way. We had a big celebration with our staff and family last night and the celebration continues! We have received hundreds of kind messages from customers, agents, old friends and folks in the business community. Thank you all!

It was very brave of Julie to go on LIVE to hear the news. I couldn’t have done it!

The competition was very close, and all of us were equally worthy. Some of the products in the top 10 are amongst my favorite baby things and our favorite mompreneurs. Check ‘em out!

  • Fit4Two – prenatal and postnatal fitness programs
  • FitMom – prenatal and postnatal fitness programs
  • Wee Hands – infant and toddler sign language program

Pins & Needles

In less that 24 hours we’ll know if we are worthy of the title “Mompreneurs of the Year“. I am just so sick over this one! We’ve been considered for a few big awards in our day – and we’ve never been as nervous about it! Maybe because the votes came from the public? Our hopefully adoring public?! It’s like the “people’s choice award” for Canadian Moms that work and work and clean and cuddle and bandage and console and feed and work and work and play and teach and all of the other stuff we do to make a happy family and successful business.

Finger’s crossed! I’ll let y’all know tomorrow how we did! Even if we don’t win – it is amazing to be voted into the top three when all of us are so deserving. Way to go to all Mompreneurs! You rock!

If you want to watch us win or lose, tune in live to Canada AM at 8:40am est tomorrow!
