Happy 2nd birthday, HRM Parent! (and giveaways and free haircuts for you)

BalloonsYup, we are two years old. Time to celebrate! Last year we had so much fun with our month of weekly giveaways that we've decided to do the same again. There's some great prizes coming up, but first I wanted to tell you about a special offer from Sharkey's Cuts for Kids in Bedford: free haircuts for all your kids during the month of May!


All you have to do is give Sharkey's in Bedford a call on 406-7074, mention you are a member of this *very* cool

parenting website, and voila, a free haircut! (Here's the conditions: you must be a new customer to Sharkey's, appointment necessary, no weekends or holidays, May only). I think that's pretty nifty. Thanks, Sharkey's! (You can read more about Sharkey's here.)


Now on to the giveaways…


This week you have a chance to win one of two Noobee® Jr's from Pookafun. The NoobeeNoobee® is a new educational toy that can be used to entertain children from 0-5. Made from soft micro fleece, it super soft so appeals to your little one's desire to touch and feel, and is super compact and machine-washable (which appeals to us moms!). You can use the Noobee® Jr to visually stimulate a baby while feeding, in the car or stroller, or to sing the ABC’s. Or entertain a toddler anywhere with activities such as eye spy, counting numbers, or finding letters. They also have a Noobee® Sr, which you can use to recite nursery rhymes and songs together, or you can use the Noobee® to practice letters and numbers.


We have two Noobee® Jr's up for grabs. Value $19.95 each. To enter, just leave a comment on this post below and you will be entered into the random draw. (HRM Parent members only. Not a member? Join here!) For extra entries, subscribe to our blog here and/or post this link to your Facebook by clicking here, and then post another comment below letting me know that you did this (or that you are already a blog subscriber). Deadline to enter: midnight on Friday May 8. Good luck!
