Like lots of families, we are purging the massive amount of toys from our household this summer. (Seriously...why does my son have so many cars?) We go through his bins, his closet and his toy trunk, and he identifies the items that he no longer wants to play with so they can go "to other children that would probably like them."…

Well, I really hate these posts that show a lot of products, that seem to be chosen only because of a newsletter from a beauty concern;)

Happy Friday! This week I am trying out something new with our 4 year old. We feel it's time to start teaching him his own "responsibilities". Being a first time mom, I have no idea how to do this but here is what I came up with. Let me know what you think.

As Mommies, we have very little time to ourselves. I know there are lots of days where my little guy follows me around the house because he "wants to be in the same room as me." That is sweet, but I don't appreciate it when that following me around includes the bathroom.…Continue

When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day. Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.
Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers. I…Continue

There is no feeling quite like the sun warming your face on that very first summer day. It reminds us of picnics, bar-b-ques, and time with friends and family at a beach or lake. But, while you’re enjoying the great outdoors, the sun is causing damage to your skin.
We all know that overexposure…Continue

We've all heard the expression 'football widow', but have you heard of a 'technology orphan'? I use this term to describe children who do everything they can to get their parent's attention while the parent has their nose stuck in their smartphone.
I may be a grandmother of five, but do get it. I am guilty of reading a book, playing a game, or texting (or all three) on my phone while watching TV. And I see nothing wrong with occupying yourself on the phone while waiting in a line or…Continue

I know lots of moms. Some are crafty, some are incredibly active and others are unbelievably excellent cooks. Then there are the ones who make the whole work/life thing look ridiculously easy. It's that last set of moms that get to us. The ones who seem to have the perfect children, house, marriage - the ones that make us question how we are lacking in our own lives.…Continue

ChooseCartons contacted me a couple of weeks ago to share an initiative that they’re running during the month of July to help raise awareness about recycling and food packaging – while planting trees at the same time. Being a household that’s pretty good about recycling (we try our best!) and choosing the eco-friendly option, it seemed like a pretty cool campaign to participate in.
Please note that I was compensated for participating in this campaign. They also planted a tree for me.…Continue
