6 Ways to Have Indoor Winter Fun with Kids (You HAVE to try Number 3!)

Indoor Winter Fun

Right about the middle of February it starts feeling like winter will never end.  This winter, it has been too cold to even go outside and play in the snow most days. 15° is my limit; when it goes too much under that, I'm just not bringing myself or my kids outside. Too. Freaking. Cold. So we're always looking for ways to have indoor winter fun - especially during snow days and winter breaks! The best part? None of these ideas cost a … [Read more...]

Junior Explorer Review: Wildlife Games for Kids

Jr Explorer 6

Disclosure: My family received a free Mission Kit for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.  When my son first started kindergarten, I was hesitant about the amount of computer time students were getting. Besides computer skills class, held only once every two weeks, students have the option to use iPads during "Choice Time" daily. But then I gave myself a little reality check. As an adult, a HUGE portion of my work and … [Read more...]

Party Favors For Kids’ Birthday Parties that Don’t Create Clutter

Party Favor Ideas

I have a recurring conversation with my closest mom friends every year at this time. We all agree that Birthday Party "goodie bag"-type favors are the worst. And yet, WE ALL GIVE THEM OUT. We hate them. We hate it when our kids bring them home. So then why, in the name Disney Junior, do we keep subjecting ourselves and our fellow parents to these bags filled with disposable plastic junk that just clutters up our homes. THERE MUST BE A BETTER … [Read more...]

What do Probiotics Do For Children? Turns out, a lot! #BioGaia #ChildrensProbiotics


Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of BioGaia and MomSelect. All opinions on probiotics (and everything else) are my own. Once you have children, bodily functions that maybe weren't socially acceptable to bring up in public before you had kids, like pooping, farting, and barfing, are such a part of the daily life of a parent that they are a major topic of discussion. Recently I received a text from my husband, about the frequency, … [Read more...]

I've written many, many times about my love of online consignment retailer Twice.  I've purchased everything from jeans to shoes to Anthropologie dresses. Here's the thing I haven't written about -- in nearly every order (and I probably purchase something at least once a month), I end up shipping something back. It's the wrong color, or size, or it just looks. . .wrong. Now, I love Twice, and I love shopping. But I don't love shipping things … [Read more...]

I got a packet of papers in the mail last week that nearly brought me to tears. It was my daughter's kindergarten registration. My daughter, my baby, my youngest child will be in school all day next September.  While I have a whole range of mixed feelings about kindergarten, receiving this packet in the mail made me start reflecting about when my babies were, in fact, babies. With my first child, Mason, was a baby, every decision seemed … [Read more...]
