Growing Little Wishers

Growing Little Wishers

October is full of goblins, gools, witches, and monsters. At least at my house, because I’ve got four of them. Just kidding, my children are perfect little angels, just check out my Instagram. But, for real, the month of Halloween is filled with things that […]

Counting On: Learning Math at Home

Counting On: Learning Math at Home

Math. It has always been my kryptonite. I love history, fly through Shakespeare, and diagram Dr. Seuss in my sleep. But, I still have no idea who Pythagoras is, in fact what is a theorem anyway? And, if two trains are traveling at the same […]

Love what you see? ENTER HERE to win a wooden block bundle from Cubbie Lee Toys.  It’s that time of year again. The time when the most obnoxious toys come out to play. I hate toys that make noise. There are gentle musical toys and […]

I Feel Like a Woman: Four Steps to a Smooth Shave

I Feel Like a Woman: Four Steps to a Smooth Shave

Knock me over with a feather. No, not because I feel like a woman but because the product insiting such a feeling was made for a man. It’s no secret that I enjoy collaborating with brands. It’s a fun way to try a new product […]

Sugar, Sugar: Switch It Out

Sugar, Sugar: Switch It Out

 Forget the costumes, that’s what halloween is all about: sugar and more sugar. We’re not strict about sugar in our house. In fact, I have a whole stash of fruit snacks and lollipops. But, you know what I hate? A whole bag full of […]
