Fall Styles, Just in Time for #BTS2015 at the @ChildrensPlace

Back to school shopping has commenced and my girls are getting excited to use their new supplies, make new friends, reconnect with old friends, and wear their new clothing. Right now I’m “the mean mommy” because I’m not letting them wear their new threads until school has actually started. I don’t want them starting off their new […]

Winding Down Summer, Safely with Neutrogena #ChooseSkinHealth

Students may be back in school but the sun is still shining! It’s so important to remember to lather up your kids with sunscreen before they head off to school. Since our school has outdoor lineup and recess, with very minimal shade, I made sure my girls have skin protection every morning. My youngest daughter’s […]

Starting off the school year with Peppa Pig

  I can’t believe my second daughter will be headed to school in just a few weeks. It’s not mandatory she goes, but she’s been begging to go to school and I’m sure breaking up the daily monotony and socializing her will be a good thing for all of us. She’s way more excited to […]

My girls are absolutely amazing when it comes to creativity, building, and using their imagination. I love the story lines they come up with and listening to how they interact with each other, as well as learn from each other.

Sure, our schedule will start filling up once school starts, but that doesn’t mean we stay indoors a whole lot when we are home. While school and homework and learning are all important, so is fun and activity. I know those harsh winter […]
