You guys, can you believe it’s already time to start talking about going back to school? For us down here in the south, we only have a few weeks until we go back! I love spending the summer with my daughter, but I also love the structure and routine of back to school time. This year is a big one for us, it’s 3rd grade! Which means it’s our first year for real letter grades and switching classes! It also means that there is much more on our back to school list than crayons, markers, and tissues. This year we need notebooks for every class, pencils, calculators, all kinds of “big girl” things as my daughter calls them! As parents we know how expensive back to school time can be, so I’m always looking for ways to lighten the load a little bit. Coupons are always a great money saving options, and¬†coupons.com¬†is my favorite place to find them! They always have the best selection of coupons on the web, and I love that the site is easy to navigate and use. But wait, there’s more! [Read more…]

Spring Cleaning With Kids

It’s that time of year again…Spring Cleaning¬†time! It’s so strange, normally I’m not one to get excited about the thought of cleaning. But for some reason¬†spring cleaning¬†is something I really enjoy. Maybe it’s because after it’s all done, I get to enjoy a sparkling clean house with the windows open and the sun shining through my open windows. Who doesn’t love that right?¬† [Read more…]

You guys, I’m back! I know it’s been about a week since I’ve written a post, but I promise I’ve had a good reason. We have had some health issues in my family. Even as I type my daughter is at home with a nasty case of Scarlet Fever (I didn’t even know people still got that!). But now I’m back. And I’m back with an an awesome tip for you guys. If there is one thing my kid love it’s her¬†American Girl¬†dolls. And to be honest, I’m ok with this. I love that¬†American Girl¬†is all about girl power and I would much rather have my daughter exploring her imagination with dolls than in front of a TV all day. [Read more…]

10 Good Fiber Foods Your Kids Will Actually Want To Eat

10 Good Fiber Foods Your Kids Will Actually Want To Eat

10 good fiber foods

Happy Wednesday everyone! Last week¬†I took my 7 year old for her yearly well visit with her doctor. We found out that she is 4 feet tall, 51 pounds, and needs some more¬†fiber¬†in her diet. This isn’t something that surprised me in the least. ¬†She has had stomach issues since she was very small. (I blame her father HA!). So I left the doctors office with a plan to find out some¬†good fiber foods¬†that my daughter would actually eat.If you are wondering if your child may be lacking some fiber¬†in their diet, ask them how many times they go to the bathroom a week. If it’s less than once a day, I would consider adding more¬†fiber¬†to their diet.¬† [Read more…]

Happy Winter Break everyone! Is anyone else already hearing the sweet sounds of our children complaining of being bored? I know I sure am. As if they don’t have tons of toys right? Ha! Lucky for us, we live in the era of information, so it wasn’t hard to hop online and find a craft for my daughter and myself to check out. We settled on checking out some¬†DIY Crystal Hearts¬†as our afternoon craft. You guys, these are SO cool to make! It’s easy enough for the kids to do (almost) on their own, and it teaches them a little science, and that’s always a good thing right? And the beauty of this project is that you can make any shape you want using the same process! Let’s check out how to make these¬†DIY Crystal Hearts¬†shall we?¬† [Read more…]

The holidays are here! And if you are looking for a fun and unique gift for someone special, I have just the place to get them from,¬†Vat19!¬†Now I have only just recently heard of Vat19¬†when my daughter ran up to me asking for a giant gummy worm. I had no idea what she was talking about, so we say down at the computer and headed to¬†the¬†Vat19 website¬†to check out what they had to offer. Apparently. my daughter had heard about Vat19¬†from a YouTube video she watched. (Which was pretty funny actually). So when I was given the oppurtunity to work with them, I was so excited to surprise my daughter with a special surprise! [Read more…]

Free Printable Santa Letter For Kids

Free Printable Santa Letter For Kids

free printable santa letter

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays of the year! I love filling my house the holiday cheer, spending time with family, and I’ll admit it, the presents are pretty fun too. Lucky for me, my 7 year old still believes in the magic of Santa and gets really excited to write him a letter every year with what she wants. This year we wanted to try something a little different. Instead of asking Santa for random gifts, I wanted to try out the 4 gift path I had seen recently. The 4 gifts are something I want, something I need, something to wear, and something to read! So she can pick out a toy she wants, something she needs (like an electric pencil sharpener), a new outfit, and a new book! I LOVE this idea. Not only does it prevent me from going overboard (which I tend to do) it keeps her from expecting too much as well. And anything to promote reading is awesome with me!¬† [Read more…]

minecraft story mode review

If there is one thing my daughter would rather be doing more than anything else, it’s playing¬†Minecraft!¬†It amazes me all the cool things she can make and do with the game, and she is only 7! And being a video game loving family (no really, we have 5 different game consoles) I love playing¬†Minecraft¬†with her. So when we heard that they were coming out with a¬†Minecraft Story Mode¬†we were beyond thrilled! The one thing I always missed about¬†Minecraft¬†was the chance to have missions, and a story to follow along with. So now we have the best of both worlds.¬† [Read more…]
