Marking Mini Milestones with Netflix

  I’ve had some really big milestones in my life – graduating college and law school, getting married, having my kids. Once you’re a parent, the milestones are small, but they mean so much more – first words, first steps, first day of school. Sometimes milestones can be really exciting, but sometimes they can be a little…

Cooking Up Fun with Kidstir

I’m a sucker for fun mail and we got some recently – Kidstir sent us one of their monthly boxes, a hands-on kit to encourage cooking with kids and trying new foods. I opened our box and found two recipes, a binder with dividers to keep our recipes in, a shopping list, a kitchen artist…

Pizza and a Movie with Netflix Streaming

Fall is in full swing and we’re finally getting used to the new routine. We’ve got two kids on different school schedules and we’re all on different sleep schedules, so what that all adds up to is that the kids really don’t even see each other much in the mornings. When they get home from…

Parenting Made Affordable with Parent’s Choice Diapers

Parenting is an expensive job. Studies have estimated that it costs over $250,000 to raise a child and that number makes my  head hurt. It’s almost hard to believe that’s true, until you shop for diapers. Ouch! Thankfully, you can save as much as $240 a year by purchasing Parent’s Choice diapers at Walmart instead…

Encouraging Kindness with Netflix Streaming

My kids started school a couple weeks ago and the new school year always gets me thinking about what I want my kids to learn. Of course, things like math and literacy are important, but it’s more important to me that they learn to be understanding and helpful to others. In a word, I want…

Walgreens – Get A Shot, Give A Shot

  It seems like August always gets here a little sooner than we expect, doesn’t it? It’s still summer but you can feel it ending. School is coming which means back-to-school shopping and required vaccines. Of course, you planned to make that appointment for immunizations long ago, but somehow the summer slipped by. Now, the…

Batkid Begins – Batkid Documentary Needs Your Support

I spend a lot of time on social media. It’s part of being a blogger, but it’s also because I genuinely enjoy it. A lot of people think social media is a waste of time, or that it’s a little silly, and I guess it can be sometimes, but it can also be used to spread…
