I went to California Pizza Kitchen for the first time recently. My wife and kids have actually been there before when they were shopping at Bridgeport Village. But shopping isn’t my thing and Bridgeport Village is about 25 miles away. Anyways, I was very impressed with California Pizza. The food was delicious, the service was awesome, and the prices were reasonable. I also learned CPK will work with you on food allergies. And BTW, California Pizza offers more than just pizzas (like pasta, chicken, salads, sandwiches, fish, soup, etc). Oh, one more thing. CPK gift cards are great stocking stuffers. And when you purchase $100 in gift cards, you’ll receive a $20 promotional card for yourself (sweet, right?). This promotion runs through January 2, 2017.
This week on my dad blog, I have three short news stories that may be of interest to dads and moms:
Read Across America at Walmart
Walmart.com is running a month-long promotion on children books as part of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Dads and moms can save up to 40% on the top 500 children’s books. Parents can purchase children books for as low as $3 (including free shipping). According to various studies, by the age of two, children who are read to regularly display greater language comprehension, larger vocabularies, and higher cognitive skills. The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study found that children who were read to at least three times a week by a family member were almost twice as likely to score in the top 25 percent in reading.
The people over SafetyTat contacted me last month about their temporary tattoos for kids. Yeah, I know, why would dads and moms want to read about tattoos? As parents, we’ve seen more than our share of temporary tattoos (Dad Blog Question of the Week: Why do kids like to stick tattoos on each other’s behinds and then laugh hysterically?).
SafetyTat tattoos are different from other tattoos for children. As their slogan suggest, The Tat That Brings Kids Back!, SafetyTat tattoos are about safety. The tattoos display a parent’s phone number and help parents and child to be reunited if separated. If I ever go back to Disneyland, I could see myself using a product like this. And I’m sure Mommy Forever would want to stick one on me too because I have a habit of disappearing on her (it’s not my fault if I keep getting abducted my little green aliens).
