Prefresh Review and Giveaway

Here's how Prefresh was born:

"What started out as a casual date between two consenting adults, turned into an ongoing relationship of making mad, passionate tees for their friends. One thing led to another, and a tiny idea was conceived. It grew and kicked in the womb for a few months; eventually sprouting into a bigger idea that parents should love the product they buy for their kids just as much as their kids do. Word spread about the immaculate conception, and the two proudly gave birth to Prefresh in 2007, with a vision to make limited run, street-worthy product for all the children of the world."

If you check out their website, you will discover that they are REALLY fun products which are apt for kids! Did i forget to mention CUTE ?! I also checked out their website - the whole visit was fun especially the KNOWLEDGE section! These are the creative people who manufacture these cute clothes for kids.

Smart and Trendy Moms is proud to host a review and Giveaway of Prefresh clothes!

The "Most" Beautiful Prayer

I love to hear children pray the most honest prayers.But i was moved ( shaken a bit) when my Noddy Boy uttered his first prayer at 20 months of life!

Noddy Boy has always retired to bed without much fuss when he was sleeping in his crib.Once he got his toddler bed, it was hard work to keep him in his bed.( Some of you moms out there know what i am talking about!)If i had a secret camera in his room, i would see him wandering in the room, pulling out dresser drawers and making stairs with the drawers to get to to the top of the dresser, playing with vaseline..SO! it was time for intervention! I began to tell him " You can't get out of bed" every time he got up to wander around.And he started obeying! Once he reached the edge of the bed, he would hear me and return to lie-down.yeah, this happens like 20 times before he decides not to get up at all :)

About a week ago, i had begun to teach him to pray and thank God for His love and the blessings he has.

One night when i didn't have the energy to repeat myself 20 times, Noddy Boy was desperate to get to the edge of the bed and wouldn't give-up. So i decided to let go to watch where he was going...here's what happened:

Noddy Boy crawled slowly to the edge of the bed and knelt down and put his little palms together and said " Jesa"( his way of pronouncing "Jesus") and slowly repeated "Jesa".Then he raises both his little hands and goes "Hala,Hala" ( he meant Hallelujah! He has been watching people at church). I watched him with tears in my eyes as he crawled back into bed and laid himself down to sleep..

It took me a long time to fall asleep that night..how many times do i forget to see life through the eyes of a child? When tiredness overtook me and i forgot to pray, did i give him a chance to pray even though i forgot? How many times did i deprive him of chances when he was probably right? Because i am a parent, am i always right?

A child's mind is beautiful and says, does beautiful things.Do we have the mind to understand them or are we just too TIRED?
