The Fox and the Hound 30th Anniversary Edition with The Fox and the Hound 2 both on blu-ray as well as DVD was released on August 9th! This story is such a cute, loving story of friendship between two animals you would never assume to be friends. The hound should truly be hunting Tom the fox, however, they grow a friendship unlike any other.
I just love when Disney releases their DVD’s from the vault! I have started quite the little collection for my children, not only through blog reviews but through purchases of my own! I once wanted to have all of the Disney movies on VHS and have a small collection but now that DVD’s are the in thing I plan to collect as many as possible that get released from the vault! Since I received this package as a free review item for my site I am also able to share some printables that you can enjoy with your family!

I was at the pool yesterday and I informed my uncle that tomorrow was going to be Baby K’s third birthday. My uncle says “Three years ago tomorrow you were looking to get rid of a kid” and my reply was “and I still am”. Okay, I really do love my children and no I don’t want to get rid of them, but he had set that up for me to reply that way, right?
Today my youngest is THREE, he will show you that he is three by holding up his index finger, middle finger and ring finger, very cute! He doesn’t want me to sing happy birthday to him upon waking up and all he wants for his birthday is cake and ice cream. Baby K informed me all he wanted was the dump truck to be brought to where we are now living, which it has been brought here and so he is happy with just cake and ice cream like his brother had last week.
So today, my sweet, dare devil, half monkey child who hangs from anything possible and loves to test boundaries and limits – not only with Mama but with his own body … I say Happy Birthday and Mama loves you berry, berry much!

I think this cartoon is a RIOT! I plan to let my Dad have this set as he would get way more out of it than me, I have three kids who rule the TV and this isn’t one of their cartoons really. They prefer other types. So …. will you get this when it is released? You can order an advance copy on ShoutFactory! or Amazon.com
Disclosure: ShoutFactory! sent me this DVD for free.All opinions are my own.
I want my children to have empathy and compassion towards others, I want them to know what kindness does not only for others but for their own happiness. I am a Mom who has shown my children that making others smile is so worth more than any amount of money in the world.
Today I am excited to share with you a new multiplatform pro-social initiative that the 24 hour Sprout channel is offering for children of a preschool age to encourage the development of empathy. Sprout Kindness Counts is a great way to start young with discouraging bullying. I know that my daughter is already starting to experience the occasional bullying from peers and peer pressure is really difficult for a child to deal with.
I know as a mom it’s hard for me to explain bullying and how it isn’t okay. I get upset that parents haven’t taught their children to be kinder to others. I know my daughter already donates every year canned goods around the holiday time and she wants to set up her own website to collect donations for victims of disasters around the world. I have been raising my children to have compassion, this isn’t to say my children will never be a bully, but I am taking the steps every parent should in educating children on feelings and treating people right.
This month Sprout invites you to Add Your Kind Act to the Count and share with your child what being kind to others can accomplish!
