***Tiny Tales Giveaway***

I am very excited about today's giveaway because this product is the perfect solution for someone like me. I love to keep track of all the quirky little things my kids do and say and when they do them, but I find I rarely have the time to write down elaborate journal or baby book entries and usually forget what I want to write before I get around to it.

Tiny Tales was created by a Mom who wanted a simple, time-saving way of tracking her child's milestones and favorite memories. Tiny Tale's kits contain labeled notepads and dividers; To keep track of something your child has done simply check off one of the categories on the notepad, jot down the story, and slip the note behind the appropriate divider. The notepads come in a clear, sturdy recipe-style storage box that is attractive enough to keep on the counter or desk for easy access, and small enough to keep in an easily accessible cupboard! You now have a perfectly organized and attractive memory box, and can save it as is (like I will!) or use it as a great resource for future scrapbooking or journaling.

Because we all have kids at different stages, Tiny Tales offers a variety of kits for different ages and has refill notepads available. Check out all the options by clicking here.

***Tiny Tales is giving one tutus & turtles reader the Tiny Tales Kit of their choice!***

This is such a great way to keep track of all the things we want to remember about raising our children. I look forward to the laughs and smiles that will come when we pull our box out down the road. And lucky for us, Tiny Tales is offering 20% off your order with code "TUTUS," good till the end of February.

If you're at a loss (and wish you had a Tiny Tales box on your counter to help jog your memory!), tell us what kit would be best for the stage you are at.


*Please leave your name with the comment, we will get contact information after you win.
*Comments without a name will be ignored.
*Giveaway will be open for comments until noon PST on Thursday, February 21st.
*One entry per person, please.
*Winner will be picked at random and announced Thursday afternoon.

One of my families most memorable moments was in church on sunday I told my mom I needed to blow my nose and she did not have a napkin. They say... I blew a booger so big it went over my head. I don't believe! I think it was highly over exagerated! I wish I would have had one of these so my mom could have written down the real story.

What a cute idea! I love how it looks so nice too, so you can have it just sitting out. I can't even recall how many times I will think, "I need to remember what he/she just said so I can post in on the blog, or put it in the scrapbook". And then when I finally get around to it, I can't remember what it was they said! So frustrating! Something like this would definitely be handy.

My little boy is just getting to the stage of saying a bunch of cute things, but I always forget about it and wish I had written it down. I would love one of these!

How cute and easy! Perfect.

What a great idea. I always love seeing my second daughter attempting to grow up so quickly, trying to catch her older sister. It would be great to be able to write all my memories down somewhere!

What a great Idea!!

Brianne said...

My daughter is 13 months, so she hasn't done too many funny things yet. I am excited for the times ahead and one of these boxes would be so perfect.

Having my first child, I'm surprised by how meaningful all those little "first times" are. Of course the big things are important (i.e., first step, first word, etc.), but it's the cute little moments that really make my day.

I was trying to roll up a long plastic garbage bag roll that my daughter had unraveled, and as I was rolling it up, she grabbed the other end and unknowingly held it taunt, which helped the process. She stayed put for a while, but then started walking towards me. I told her to walk backwards instead, so then she stopped, turned around, and walked backwards towards me. When I recounted the story to my husband that night, he just laughed. Technically, she had done what I had asked her. I love her so very much.

What a great idea! I am always trying to find little slips of paper to jot down what my daughter does, but this set would make it so much easier and cuter:)! Thanks for bringing this to your readers.

This is exactly what I need in my life. Three kids, a million post it notes. I need one place where I can go and keep track. Great idea.

I love love love this! What a great idea! So many people are so creative! I love it when my son learns new things, but I have especially loved it when my son learned to respond when we say "Smile!" it is no ordinary smile, it is a full blown squish up the face, squint the eyes thing, so fun!!

When I was little I was totally into getting completely undressed and climbing into the toilet. My mom jokes that I was forever the lifegaurd. When she couldn't find me that's the first place she would check and sure enough I was always in there. Good thing she kept it really clean. I love the tiny tales for the babies. I feel bad that I am not a scrapbooker so my son has a few of his first scribbled onto the family calender. Now with my second I am still the same. Tuny tales would totally help me keep better track of our sweet memories that happen at our house.

What a great idea! I keep everything on my blog, if I were to loose that, which I always fear could happen, I would loose so much info about my kids. I would love to have one of these for each of my kids.

A memory that I have of myself, as I was told by my parents, is that I taught myself to walk in one day! I was born with my hips out of socket, so I was in a brace until I was at least a year old, unable to get up and move around. The day I got my brace off, I learned to walk. No wonder my almost 1 year old is such a go-go girl!

Another genius idea!! I love it!
My 1 year old is such a pack rat right now...always having to be holding multiple items and dragging them all over the house. She does the cutest and off the wall things right now!

i love this idea! i am always jotting down as many things as i can remember about my kids for the day on an ordinary calendar...and some days it can get pretty full! but my 3 year old boy comes up with some of the funniest phrases. the latest was said during primary singing time-luckily i play the piano and was there to hear. he is a new sunbeam and usually loves to sing the sunbeam song, but on this particular sunday he wasn't too exicted. just as the song started, he screamed to his teacher, "NO! jesus not want cole a sunbeam!" you can be sure that i wrote that on my calendar that night!

Holly said...

This idea is genious. I love it! My daughter is at the age when she repeats everything I say. The other day I was talking to my husband, and she came over and called him by his first name. It was so funny, and she's been doing it on and off ever since. So much for "daddy".

Tuesday Girl said...

I love the way my twins mispronounce things like Jofus (joseph) or mens (mans) so i would love to record all of those!

Bevans said...

One of the things my mother wrote down that I did as a kid was somehow snuck the eggs, flour, and milk into the living room and proceeded to try to make pancakes on the living room carpet. I'm expecting my first, so this would be perfect to write down all of the sames kind of stories.

This is such a great idea. My son continues to entertain me every day and I always need more time to document everything. The other day I put him down for a nap in his diaper and he just played and played for 30 minutes I finally went to go get him because he was obviously not taking a nap and he was having a lovely time because he had pooped and taken off his diaper. He had it everywhere. It was disgusting but he was just having a ball and thought it was even more fun to take a bath in the afternoon. He definitely needs to be reminded of this one day and he definitely won't be going to be with just a diaper on!:)

I'm ridiculously nostalgic and will love reliving recorded memories of my baby when she comes! As an avid journal keeper but unable to get into scrapbooking, this would be exactly what I need! If my little girl takes after the quirks of my husband, I'm sure I'll have plenty to write down!

Melissa said...

I love finding new ideas that can help me remember the great times I've had with my kids and of course the not so great moments are worth remembering as well. Sometimes simply writing it down in a journal can really bore me. This is a great idea! Thanks.

Andrea Keck said...

I think that I am the worst at keeping track of the cute things that my baby does, and I would really love a way to help me do this because I know she will appreciate it when she is older to read about her life and all the cute things she has done. This is a great idea!

Cute idea. It is such a good idea to have something to easily document those first and funny moments. My mom and 5 girls and was able to remember so much, especially since she took a ton of pictures of all that we did. The funniest memory I have from my childhood was falling asleep in my spaghetti and then sitting back up and resting my hand and just sleeping in my high chair. Glad my mom remembered it and caught it on film. I hope that I can remember those kind of memories from my 2 girls childhoods.

Stephanie said...

These are darling! I would love to be able to have a place to write down all the things my son is doing right now, how he calls pants- peets and pizza-putput, and how he refuses to count from one but starts at two every time. Those are just things I don't want to forget.

Danielle t said...

just the other day after three days of not leaving the house due to sick kiddos, I told my family I needed a break---I went downstairs, they came downstairs--I went up stairs, they came upstairs... you get the idea. Finally exasperated, I say something along the lines of why won't anyone leave me alone? To which my son says "that's because we love you mom." That's something I want to remember! What a cute way to document all the great everyday comments and moments that make up life! Thanks for the chance to win!

Chelsea said...

I love this! I am always trying to remember and by the time I get around to writing them down not very many are remembered. I would use this to keep track of all the funny things my 2 year old is saying.

Stephanie said...

What a great idea. For the first year I was writing down a new thing my son did, even though it wasn't in a scrapook style. This would be something that I could do now in his life of the moments I want to write down.

I remember writing down when he was able to pull the frogs off of the bathtub wall for the first time and now as soon as we turn on the water, he's pulled them all off.

Jillian said...

wow! this would be so great for all my one year olds activities! I love it!

Brittney said...

this is wonderful!

April said...

My funniest memory as a child was when my sister and I would dress up and one of us would hide behind a curtain while the other one would say, "presenting, Miss Amy Vixon". I have no idea where the Vixon part came from.

Heather Dawson said...

I think the baby box would be my pick. I'm always so crazy when I have a new baby -- it would be nice to have an "easy" way to keep track of all of my memories.

Corinne said...

I love staying organized...this is the perfect thing to record all the precious happenings of my kids! I love it!!

Loved it when my 2-year-old dumped a whole bottle of AJax in his toy box while I was blow-drying my hair!

I have twins and they are always making me laugh. Right now I am drawing a blank which is why I really need this :) I think the personalized one would be perfect for me so I could keep track of both kids! Sarah

I am always forgetting some of the funniest things my kiddos have done and said, so I would love this! Recently they dumped any entire box of cereal on the kitchen floor which made me want to cry and laugh at the same time!

I am pregnant with my first so the baby tales would be perfect! I'll have to remember the expecting tales for the next one.
