My children play rough all day long and I can hardly keep up with them especially when it comes to cleaning up after them. I was sad when school started but only for a few days. I can finally get them to settle down for a bit. My sons especially act like they are Mr. Destructo when they play.  They are also really mean to each other. I don't know how many … [Read more...]

50 Free Ebooks for Kids

kidsebooks5

If you are like me then you love reading.  I love reading in all shapes and forms. I am thankful that my children also love it.  My oldest son always has a book in his hands. He tells me all about the stories he reads (I always read his books first to make sure they are appropriate but I guess he doesnt know that) and then tells his dad everything he told me as soon as he gets home.  My younger son has a select few he likes now for me to read to him.  Again. And again.  He has practically worn through the cover of the Bellybutton Book.  Since we … [Read more...]

Getting Ready for Preschool with Disney Junior

Disclosure:  This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #Ready4Preschool You would think that since I have a preteen now that I would be used to the sad feeling that my child is old enough for preschool.  I just cant believe it has been that long.  I wont say that we havent been looking forward to this though.  My middle child has a late birthday so he wont get to go to Kindergarten for THREE MORE YEARS! Isn't that silly? So I signed him up for 3k preschool this year.  … [Read more...]

Rocking Out this Summer with Bomb Pop

Bomb Pop Prize Pack Photo

Why is it so hot in the summer? Whyyyyyy? I am joking. I know why.  It is so we can wear shorts and eat Bomb Pops while lounging about in the air conditioner.  That's what I do during the summer  I actually love the summer. I love being able to wear tank tops and flip flops. I especially love eating Bomb Pops because they are the icy treat of my childhood.  This time last year I threw a Bomb Pop party for my niece and she had such a good time. I am super thankful to be able to do that for her again and honor both the National Bomb Pop Day on June … [Read more...]

Family Friendly Fun in Las Vegas

discovery-museum

Family friendly fun in Las Vegas When we think about Las Vegas, usually we conjure up images of adult-only activity, from drinking in bars to gambling away our hard-earned cash or running away to get married. Contrary to popular belief however, the City of Sin does actually boast a huge variety of family friendly activities, many of which do not have to be harmful to your back pocket. If you are anything like me, you save up all year for a great vacation and you want to be able to fit as many fun events in as you can! Whether it’s a cultural … [Read more...]

Park Playdate at Veterans Park for the Win

parkplaydate6-14

I have been so busy this summer.  I am sure I have mentioned that when we moved five years ago that we moved almost an hour from all of our friends and family.  So all summer I have been driving back and forth from my mom's house or my grandmother's house.  This week I have gotten gas three times at $65 each time.  In ONE week.  I have been picking up teenagers and driving my mom to her appointments and doing lots of coupon shopping.  I am tired.  I am glad that I have a great park that is sort of nearby so that we can decompress and get rid of the … [Read more...]

Fun in Birmingham with Camp Spark

campspark

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Camp Spark. It is almost summer and my kids are already acting like they have too much energy to burn. They are running around the house like its a football field. I know it is only going to get worse.  Kids need something to occupy their mind and bodies. I make a list at the beginning of each summer for my kids and we try to make it through the list by the end.  They feel like its an adventure trying to fit all the cool trips and activities in. One of the things my older son always … [Read more...]

Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches – Organic Fun On the Go!

IMG_0391

“I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”Like most parents I live in a whirlwind of activities. I never manage to get anything done on time because every single time I schedule myself some time to work it is also time for a doctors appointment or a visit to the orthodontist (who steals all my money) or even an impromptu visit to Mawmaw because she wants to see us and I am entirely too dependent on … [Read more...]

Making Milk More Delicious with MilkSplash

milksplash1

Do your kids enjoy milk? Like most children I know, my children are obsessed with milk.  My youngest son has always loved it and he always asks me every day if he can have some choc choc.  That is his word for chocolate milk.  He likes plain milk if we do not have chocolate syrup but he prefers choc choc.  Well, choc choc is FULL of sugar.  When I started trying to become more healthy I looked up the calories for the syrup and milk and it was over 300 calories for one cup of milk.  I told my husband that we had to cut back.  So when we were … [Read more...]

Well Beginnings Diapers and Wipes at Walgreens are a Hit!

Well Beginnings Diapers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Well Beginnings. #WellBeginnings As as newly minted stay at home mom (does 10 months count as newly minted), I am always on diaper duty.  My husband is rarely home while the kids are awake so he is lucky enough to get out of that chore.  Moriah is my third baby and after three I can tell you all there is to know about diapers.  My second child didn't potty train until he was three.  I have been through my fair share of brands, sizes, and shapes.  All three of my children were huge when they were … [Read more...]
