MOTHERLOAD HOLIDAY GIVING GUIDE: Ms. Ronda’s Alphabet Teaching Series

Children of all ages love the antics of the characters in Ms. Ronda’s Alphabet Teaching Series. They are delighted by the bright, colorful illustrations, & they quickly fall in love with Alpha, who guides them through the alphabet series. Little ones are thrilled as Alpha introduces the main characters & teaches letter recognition, letter sounds, & ultimately helps them learn to read. They love being engaged as Alpha challenges & encourages them through additional areas of learning concepts such as numbers, colors, shapes, opposites, character traits, development of fine motor skills, & other lessons, which are interwoven throughout the series.

The “For the Big People”, section helps equip adults with techniques to better teach their children. Parents & Teachers alike, enjoy the discussions that take place with their little ones as a result of the character lessons & conversation starters that are woven into each story. Go to & click each book to view/order in time for the holiday season! 🙂

Our Stucker family DID & we are fresh from a  trip to Orlando,  FL to visit Minnie Mouse. This was my youngest daughter’s first trip to the Magic Kingdom & although not my first trip, this MotherStucker let loose & had a blast! Adults & kiddos alike benefit from playtime, which is good for physical/mental health. Everyone feels the stress of modern-day life. So let’s play, beyond childhood!

wdw2016170490602755_386436995401_16The Voice of Play is an education & advocacy initiative of the non-profit membership association, IPEMA, formed to educate & promote the benefits of children’s free outdoor play & playgrounds. Through the Voice of Play website & social media properties, IPEMA highlights the scientifically proven physical, social, emotional & cognitive benefits of play. Earlier this year the Voice of Play identified eight of the most exciting PLAYFul & hottest trends, which include outdoor fitness activities, rough-&-tumble play, play for adults, nature play & MORE! See all  8 trends here:

Why My Mother Is Important to Me….

As Happy MOMS Day Week continues I’m reminded that our loved ones play an important part in whom we are today, & who we will be later on. The greatest impact may originate from our family; my Mom is mine. She taught me everything from how to eat healthy food & dress myself… how to respond to any circumstance.

  1. She Listens to Me Carefully:

Regardless of how terrible of a day she had, she will BE there to hear me out. I converse with her about everything … She endures my emotional episodes, my steady babble & still figures out how to keep our home, & everybody in it, all together.

  1. She Calms Me Down:

It will be OK. My mother always makes me feel better & she does this with a smile, even when I forget to say thank you.

  1. She Loves Me Unconditionally:

My mother comprehends I’m my own individual — It’s critical to have somebody like that in your life; it will help you turn into the best individual you can be. Since our families are there with us from the beginning, they know every little thing about us — & they’re the ones who genuinely shape our qualities & identities.

  1. She’s a Good Influence:

She has taught me what is correct and what isn’t right, & what I ought to do when I settle on a terrible choice. She redirects me! Mom urges me to pursue my fantasies.

Jersey Moms in Love

Today I would like to discuss a new local business based in Teaneck NJ. This company is called Gardenia’s Fire & boy have they been on fire lately! Hand delivering their signature pastry bouquets that feature macarons, berries & floral cupcakes. gardeniasfirebouquet

Their business emphasizes on bringing families together, & making relationships flourish through simple gifts. Having the bouquets as multifunctional product, you can have it delivered to an employee of the month or on  your 1 year anniversary to your girlfriend. Most people enjoy sweets, & the best part is that the bouquets themselves are absolutely stunning. I have seen fruit bouquets like edible arrangements but not with gourmet desserts. Interesting perspective & the hand delivered aspect makes it even easier in having it handled as a delicate flower to loved ones.

For those that do not live in Jersey, they have recently come up with shippable gift boxes that feature their popular berries & macarons. You can find them at:

Do not forget Mother’s Day… Jersey, do you love them or what?
