There are many lovely summer weekends left to enjoy.  I've partnered with LivingSocial to share some of my favorite summer deals, both nationally and … [Read more...]

How to Choose a Safe Sunscreen + Goddess Garden Organics Review & Giveaway

Safe Sunscreen

This post is sponsored by Green Sisterhood but the opinions are my own.  What is in your sunscreen? Do you know? Until I had kids, I didn't think about it too much. But when I realized I was using a product that could be absorbed into my small children's systems, I became concerned.  When my son was born 7 years ago, I made the switch to organic or "natural" sunscreens, but still didn't look into it much further. I've now learned that ANY … [Read more...]

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

BioGaia

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...]

With my first child, Mason, was a baby, every decision seemed … [Read more...]
