Give Aways & Freebies

what our kids are reading now

  • The adventures of Samuarai Jack has been great fun to read. The series is about, an evil shape-shifter named Aku from the distant past that has brought destruction upon the land. Jack is a heroic warrior in a quest to return to the past and undo the evil wrought by Aku. ~ d

  • Dillon has been loving “The Monster Show” for weeks. It is a cute “tell all” about monsters... did you know that monsters feel silly only wearing underpants? Little D (3) now reads it back to me and it is the cutest thing ever. ~d

  • This is a great little series of books about trucks, fire engines, digger and other machines. Dillon reads these over and over again. The have cute illustrations, bright colors and they are about machines — what little boy wouldn't like! ~d


  • Milkshakes and Margaritas is a daily website dedicated to all things kid and parent related, run by San Francisco-based moms, Tanya Schevitz & Danielle Gutherie.

    Tanya is the mother of 2 boys, and a writer for several publications, including the San Francisco Chronicle. Danielle also has 2 boys and is a partner and designer in the SF based design studio — the Vega Project.

    Every week we will be sharing things we've learned, giving tips on parenting and life, recommending products we love, interviews with successful moms, and more.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, so let us know what you think — and please come back for more.

Wow! I guess I never thought of it that way (and am very glad I have only had nice comments on all our projects). We love to do craft projects too, so I can't imagine it any other way. But I certainly do not judge the parents when my kids bring home store-bought valentine's either! Yikes!!!

BTW, the rockets are super cute!!!


I think parents who give you a hard time or judge you about the things you decide to do with your child have their own issues they are dealing with (inadequacy, guilt, low self-esteem,etc).

I think that it's great if you can spend the time (and enjoy) to craft with your son. I haven't got the time or the inclination (not at ALL crafty). Don't worry about what all the haters think, it's their problem, not yours.
