Bad to the Bone Giveaway

Well, I promised you a party and party we shall. Maybe it’s just that my love language is gifts but a party has to mean gifts right?? So, as mentioned there will be a giveaway every day on this site over the next week. I’ll launch a new one a day and then end them all next Thursday and pick winners on Friday. The first one I’m very excited about so read on and get ready to party!
The weather is on the turn here. In true Chicago style, it got warm, I got out the flip flops and then….it got cold again! But nevertheless, spring is sprung (or so my daffodils think that are now going to die after peeking their heads up too soon) and I’m thinking sunnier days are ahead. With that comes the questions as a Mummy of how to protect and how much to do. I’m not going to cover him from head to toe but he has English skin like mine (read: crazy, crazy white) that will burn easily. I was surfing blogs the other day and came across this awesome site where they make sunglasses for babies and kids and I thought, “perfect!”

Last year I tried to put sunglasses on Isaac and even then he managed to get them off. Now my little monkey is into everything and there’s no way that he’d keep regular sunglasses on which is why I love Baby Banz. Those geniuses thought to add velcro to the back so they’re adjustable and they’ll stay on. They are so sturdy and I know they’re not going anywhere.

I just read on their site that until approx 8-9 yrs old a child has no filters in the eye to block out UV light. You can actually do MORE harm to the eye if you put an inferior lens in front of the eye! Behind tinted lenses, the iris opens to allow more light into the eye; if the lens doesn’t protect properly, and more UV light gets into the eye potentially damaging the child’s eye. Wowsers, that’s another huge concern of ours as both Hubby and I wear glasses so protecting his eyes is important to us.

Besides all the safety aspects, I just gotta say, “how cute is my little guy??!!” My friend, Scott, said we needed the theme tune playing in the background, “Bad to the bone”! I chose the midnight black ones but there are tons of colours to choose from at Baby Banz and they’re all only $15. They’ve also got hats and protective clothing at great prices too which you can check out here.

So, what are you gonna win? Well the Baby Banz folks are gonna give one of my readers the chance to win your choice of sunglasses for your baby or child in your choice of colours. All you have to do is:
