Enter the #FindYourJoy Contest with MAM and Win BIG ~ Plus an Additional Giveaway for $30 of MAM Products!


As the parent of a young child, the days may sometimes be long but the years are surely short. If you focus too much on the struggles of the day-to-day of raising a child, the good times can easily get lost.

“I hadn't showered, the kitchen was a mess, it was raining outside, and there was food all over baby's face. I groaned in frustration, only to notice that it made her laugh. Hearing her laugh instantly turned my day around and reminded me of what's really important.” – MAM Mom Erika

MAM’s goal is to understand and answer babies' and parents' needs so that they can focus on the joy of being a family, especially when the kids are young. It's important to savor the little moments with your family.

Share a story about a time you were able to look past the day-to-day stress of raising a child and cherish the moment with baby for a chance to win. Three winners will receive a $125 prepaid card and a $75 MAM prize pack.

Holiday Giveaway: The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection by James Barbato and Victoria Barbato

The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection
By James Barbato and Victoria Barbato

About the book:
On Christmas Eve, Victoria’s father gathers her and her brothers, Joseph and John, around the fireplace to tell the story of a very special ornament that has hung on their tree for as long as they can remember. Their father found the ornament in a mysterious tree one snowy evening when he was seven years old and brought it home. After hearing the story and going to bed, Victoria, Joseph, and John sneak back downstairs, and discover the ornament has magical powers! It whisks them away to the happiest place on Earth: Santa’s workshop! The children can’t believe their eyes as Santa himself appears before them. They also see mountains of toys, reindeer prepping for flight, the largest Christmas tree ever, and hundreds of elves. One of whom seems very familiar. This elf, named JJ, gives them a tour around the workshop, tosses one of Santa’s ornaments to Victoria, and leads them outside, straight to a mysterious tree in the woods. Victoria somehow knows to place Santa’s ornament into the tree’s knothole, and the magic of the ornament whisks them right back home. When they return, the children know they’ll never forget the magic of Christmas that they witnessed that night.

About the authors:
James (Jim) Barbato is a former college professor and business owner. He is also the son of a U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant and lived all across the United States and Canada for the first twelve years of his life. As a child, Jim developed a strong Christmas spirit, inspired by the stories his father would tell. Jim often told original stories to his own three children, including the story of The Magic Christmas Ornament, which they still remember and cherish as adults.

Victoria Barbato is currently an Instructional Coach for English language instruction in the Boston area. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in English Education and a Master’s degree in English, and is passionate about teaching and creating equity in educational opportunities for all learners. Growing up, Victoria was greatly inspired by her grandfather’s and father’s stories because they connect to the importance of family, convey fascination with the world, and always have a message of hope.

The authors’ father and grandfather, Sylvester (Ziggy) Barbato, was one of nine children from an Italian immigrant family. Ziggy often told James, his son, that their family was too poor to afford toys, but he always vowed that his children would experience the spirit of Christmas nonetheless. The Magic Christmas Ornament is an original story created by James and Victoria Barbato, allowing their family to share the magic of Christmas -- and all of its excitement -- with yours.
