I am so grateful that my mom lives less than two miles away from me. She is always there to help out, especially with babysitting. I think it is important for my son to grow up having a close relationship with his grandmother. Unfortunately not everyone lives as close to their mom as I do to mine. Visiting may be difficult due to financial constraints when families are separated by great distances.
Proctor & Gamble have a great way to celebrate moms called the "Thank You Moms Reunion" contest. It is a contest to reunite moms and children for special events such as birthdays and graduations that they may have otherwise missed.
“Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own. (15 per month for a 10 month campaign). Since Mother's Day, participants have been submitting their stories online to be considered for a reunion with their mom or mother figure for the June contest. Thirty finalists have been selected and consumers will choose the 15 winners. Winners will receive a $1000 travel voucher and portable digital video camera to capture their reunion and are encouraged to share the video on ThankYouMom.com.
So if you have a touching story and would like to submit an entry, go ahead and submit one for the July voting round. In the meantime visit the Thank You Mom homepage and vote for a story that touches your heart. You can vote once per day. Help make someones dream come true!

I love finding new children's entertainment that is appropriate for my son. I like it even more if it does not send me screaming out of the room in annoyance. The Balloonatiks to the rescue! The Balloonatiks are five ordinary teens mysteriously transformed into rubbery, shape-stretching super heroes sworn to protect Hot Air City against any evil-doer. Sound like fun? They definitely are!
I was give the opportunity to review Balloonatiks Collector's Set DVD. The DVD contains two episodes: Meet Deflator and Pop Goes the Balloonatiks. My 6 year old son was laughing practically from the beginning to the end of the episodes. He told me that he likes it when the characters say "Hubba, Hubba We Are Made of Rubba" and the deflating jokes. It was refreshing to see him so fully entertained by a story with a good moral base instead of sillyness from under the sea.
The Balloonatik's DVD is for sale at Amazon.com but if you are super lucky you could win one right here at Cute Stuff.
Mandatory Entry: Simply check out the Balloonatiks website and let me know who you would give the DVD to if you are the lucky winner.
Extra Entries: (leave a separate entry for each):
- Follow Cute Stuff on Google Friend Connect
- Be or become a feed or email subscriber to Cute Stuff
- Follow Cute Stuff on twitter
- Tweet this giveaway and leave the link to your tweet. This can be done once per day.
- Like Balloonatiks on Facebook
The giveaway will end at 11:59 CST on July 9th. Please leave a way to contact you in at least one entry.
Thanks so much to Balloonatiks for giving me this review opportunity and the chance for a Cute Stuff reader to win as well. I was given a DVD to facilitate this review but I was not under any obligation to give Balloonatiks a positive review. All opinions are mine and mine alone.

Hi everyone! I had quite a scare the last couple of days because my blog up and disappeared!!! I contacted blogger and got no response from them. I found out on Twitter that the same thing happened to many other blogs without any reason or explanation. Then just as mysteriously the blogs have reappeared.
I use blogger because I know what I am doing on it (for the most part anyway). This recent scare has me thinking about switching to another host. Anyone have any advice on this subject? I must admit I am still figuring these things out as I go along. I am just glad Cute Stuff came back because I have some fun reviews and giveaways in the works for you all!
