*I was selected for this sponsored post by Scholastic Parent & Child. All opinions expressed here are my own. As soon as my kids hop off the bus I pepper them with all sorts of questions…. “How was school today?” “Who did you sit with at lunch?” “What did you do at recess?” “How was [...]
This conversation is sponsored by Horizon Organic. The opinions and text are all mine. There’s one thing about the back-to-school season that I find to be especially challenging- getting used to the new after school sports and activities schedule.

I have this set of 4 wood picture frames that I love- and use them in my kitchen all of the time to display inspirational or holiday art. I change out the artwork every month or so- and because these frames were constructed using bendable metal fasteners, I have found that over time, they have [...]
There are two things that I am not looking forward to as we start the new school year. #1- Having to get the kids up early in the morning again. They are finally to the point where they either sleep in or they hang out quietly together downstairs in the morning… and now that we’ve [...]

But what is becoming more “the norm” is that kids are accessing the internet, apps, music, TV, and movies using mobile devices- whether it’s your pre-schooler asking to borrow your iPad and [...]
It can be ridiculously challenging for me to keep an eye on 6 different kids’ internet activities. Even though we keep our laptops in the kitchen and family room where the kids are not far rom my “watchful eye”, the truth is that I am often busy with other things- helping kids with homework, preparing [...]
I was selected for this opportunity and compensated by Cocoon Kids. The content and opinions expressed here are all my own. So this week I realized just how much access to the internet and social media can impact my household- my older boys knew about the horrific Boston Marathon bombings before I had the time to [...]
I spend lots of time out in my car running errands, dropping kids off at practices, picking them up, waiting for the bus… if you are a Mom- you know the drill! And when I am driving around- it’s not like I can write things down when they pop into my head…. things like: ideas [...]
