The September Swag Bag is here! It’s a fun one. Especially if you are a fan of This Is Us or My Little Pony or Star Wars… is there anyone out there who isn’t at least a fan of one of those things? If you haven’t already seen the contents (I announced them in my Facebook Live yesterday), check out all the awesome items listed below.

As always, to win the swag bag, you must subscribe to the Mommy Shorts daily or weekly newsletter. Instructions to enter will be in this Sunday night’s email.

The September Swag Bag includes…

1) $100 Mini Boden Gift Card

Mini Boden makes some of the cutest clothes around. I mean, just look at Mazzy and Harlow rocking all their Mini Bodenback-to-school clothes. But the best news? You can use this gift card on just regular Boden for yourself too.

2) Star Wars Swag

About a month ago, we received a huge prize pack from JCPenney with seven adult-sized shirts from their new Star Wars collection. Mazzy swiped one and wears it constantly, even though it’s about ten sizes too big. (Remember when she used to only wear pink dresses?? Me too.) The other six shirts (+1 hat) will be in the swag bag.

3) Spencer by Jaclyn Smith Newborn Collection

These are leftover items from another giveaway that is currently happening on my Instagram right now! Seriously, these clothes are so cute, it almost makes me want to have another. (No, not really.)

4) Fly Creek and Cookies for Kids Cancer Cookbooks

You might remember Fly Creek Cider Mill from when we went to Central New York in June. I’m also including a bake sale cookbook from Cookies for Kids Cancer, a non-profit that we held a bake sale for last week! More on that later.

5) Ivivva x Pottery Barn Pillows

Ivivva, the girl’s branch of Lululemon, partnered with Pottery Barn Kids earlier this summer on a bedroom line. While we really loved these pillows, have you seen how many pillows Mazzy and Harlow already have on their bed?

6) This is Us Gift Bag

This gift bag has everything you need and more to watch the new season of This is Us, including a cozy fleece blanket, tissues and a wine bottle opener. Based on your feedback during my Facebook live, I really should be watching this show…as soon as I finish Ozark.

7) My Little Pony Toys

My Little Pony sent us some toys to celebrate the premiere of the My Little Pony Movie opening next week. I was lucky to pry these two away from Mazzy and Harlow. When the two ponies high five each other, their hooves light up.

8) Crispy Bowl

This is the perfect cereal bowl for anyone that hates soggy cereal. It has two separate compartments for milk and cereal so you can scoop up cereal and dip it in the milk, keeping it nice and crunchy. Because who likes soggy cereal?? Oh, that’s right. Harlow does.

Did you know this week marks the one year anniversary of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting??? I didn’t either. Mike told me because it popped up in his facebook timeline as a memory. I should really do something more to commemorate that anniversary next week. Hmmmm. Let me think on it.

In addition to all the swag listed above, I always add a bunch of random items that just happen to be piled up in my office. Like Babiators, Extra gum and who knows what else. If you win, you’ll get a few surprises along with everything listed above.

Once again, the instructions to enter to win this month’s swag bag will be in my newsletter this Sunday night (Sorry, U.S. only!). If you are not already a subscriber, you can subscribe here.

While we’re on the topic of subscribing… have you subscribed to my YouTube channel yet? It’s getting good over there, I think.

Good luck and have a great weekend!


Congratulations to Jen Keltner! Please email to claim your prize!
