Back To School With High Sierra Backpacks

  The other night I woke up from an anxiety ridden dream: I was in the car with my hubby and kids and it was the first day of school. I looked down and I was wearing hideous pajamas. My hair was a mess and I had makeup on from the night before. I knew […]

How Independent Can A Preschooler Be?

Although my 4 year old attending a part-time preschool last year, this school year is different. She will be attending a bigger school with many more students. She will be expected to be a little more independent and I don’t think the attention she will receive will be as individualized as it was last year. […]

Superheroes Are Heading Back To School

Don’t tell my preschooler she’s not a superhero. She’s not having any of that. In her eyes, she was a born superhero and although not everyone knows her big secret, in her mind she knows the truth. Like the time I needed a helper to grab the diapers for her brother, or the time I […]

I Learned a Lot At #LysolGermSchool! Here’s The Scoop on Germs

It’s no secret I’m a germophobe. Yes, I know we NEED germs, but I’m not afraid of those good germs that are designed to build up our immune systems. I’m afraid of school germs, kitchen germs, and bathroom germs. I’m afraid of what lurks in between my children’s nails and on my kitchen counter after […]

Headed Back to School with Peppa Pig

The new school year in starting in just a few weeks and my preschooler is getting the jitters. She expresses to me that she has dreams where she’s in school and crying, and while it’s not her first school experience it will be a new school setting for her this year. Her friend from preschool […]

Simplify Shopping with the Flipp App

Somewhere between baby number one and baby number three my husband became my weekly grocery shopper. I would create lists based on weekly circulars and send him to pick up our groceries for the week. It was much easier to send him than to go shopping with kids in tow, and according to him it […]

Disney Art Academy Encourages our Budding Artist #NintendoKidReviewer

  My 7 year old is a natural born artist. It started with intricate Play Doh designs when she was 2 and by the time she was in pre-k, she was ready for an art class. The designs she came home with blew me away- dolphins, Palm trees, there was nothing this little girl couldn’t […]

Re-Introducing Betty Spaghetty!

Summer is just about half way over and we’ve crossed off a bunch of things from our summertime activities list. We’ve frequented our community pool, visited an indoor waterpark, and checked out a few arts and crafts classes. While all these activities proved to be fun and exciting, there’s nothing like a good old fashioned […]

Official PJ Masks Ambassador!

A few months ago my girls had the unique opportunity to meet 3 of their favorite characters- Cat Boy, Owlette, and Gekko. They had already been huge PJ Masks fans, but after that experience they haven’t stopped talking about the day they met real superheroes. During our down-time this summer, usually in the early mornings […]
