In our house there are a few “bad” words that the kids are absolutely and completely forbidden to say, like “I hate,” “I can’t,” and “I’m bored.” But that doesn’t mean they don’t ever say say it – in other creative ways – or feel that way when we don’t have scheduled activities. How do […]

{Review} Amazon Prime Now

November 10, 2015 in All Posts, Sponsored Posts

The joke around here is that our house could double as a shipping facility with all the packages continuously coming in and going out.

Hooray for vacation and stay at home days! Well, except for those days when the weather is too hot or too cold to get outside and run off all the extra energy from being cooped up. Even though we rotate toys – I hide stuffed animals in the attic and store birthday and holiday gifts in […]

Glitter, upcycling, and independent play:  these are a few of my favorite things.

Planning for Disneyland with Preschoolers

July 12, 2014 in All Posts, Preschool, Travel

Disneyland is truly the happiest place on Earth.
