When my oldest was born, I was relatively new to my community and didn’t know too many people, never mind the Mommy community. I searched the internet and was able to connect with a group of Mommy who had children the same age as my son. Little did I know that not only did I find friends for my son, but I also found four lifetime friends for me. They have become my rock, my sounding board and my sanity. I could never survive motherhood without them. Over the course of the past 7 years, we have had 12 kids between us! To celebrate, we rotate house each year and one of us hosts a family Christmas party. Its loud and crazy, but tons of fun and an even I look forward to each year.
Each year, the children engage in a secret Santa exchange. Its tons of fun searching for a present to a child that you have watched grow and mature. These kids are as close to me as my own! I love searching for a gift that defines their personality, enhances their traits and inspires their mind. Their gift has to be as special as they are.
This year, one of the Secret Santa gifts we had to get was for a 2 year old boy, O. He is the fourth child and third boy of the family. He’s loveable, easy going and very smart. I wanted to get him a present that definite his personality as well as show his individuality. One problem I came across is he has a unique name. It is not one I was going to find on a tooth brush or hair brush at my local novelty store. When I came across the release of Flattenme.com‘s personalized book, I knew I had found a winner.
$34.95 for hardcover. $29.95 for paperback.

Whether it’s red for their love, white for their courage, or blue for their imagination, this personalized book let’s the reader know that they are a special child and loved through and through.
Multicolor Kid is a loveable story that focuses on feelings and what makes everyone unique. The colours and pictures used in this book are stunning. They are pleasing, inviting and draw you into the story. The book relates the beautiful colors you see everyday to common emotions that you child may feel. For example, yellow is the color of the sun that makes you wiggle and giggle and grin, whereas gray is the color of gloomy days that are long and boring. I like how the story incorporates both feelings of happy and sad, teaching children that its okay to have different feelings, even if they aren’t positive. What drew me to this book as the perfect Christmas present for O was the constant use of his name. The ability to personalize the book provide the individuality I was hoping for, as well as the specialness he deserves.
