Back to School with Sassy Moms

Photo by

Note: I received some goodies for attending this event, but all opinions are my own. I know my kids didn’t go “back” to school, but we still need items that other kids need when they go to school outside the home. Sassy Moms in the City had an awesome event two weeks ago to help […]

Disney on Ice Princesses and Heroes Review

#DisneyOnIce #Chicago Rapunzel from Tangled

Last week I took my family to see Disney on Ice Princesses and Heroes in Chicago. The tickets were given to me in exchange for this review. My kids still love Disney on Ice even though we’ve been several times. Even the boys really get into it, although I’m sure they’d tell you they are […]

Use Go Math! Academy to enhance your Math Curriculum

Go Math! Academy Logo

I received compensation from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for writing this post. All opinions are my own. Now that I’m homeschooling, I sometimes need something to add to the kids’ math to help supplement what they’re learning, to let them have some computer fun, and to keep them busy while I’m working with someone else. Go Math!

LeapFrog #FitMadeFun with Leap Band and CLIF Kid Zbar Protein Bars


Last Saturday I was asked to host a #FitMadeFun party by MomSelect with a few friends to introduce them to the new Leap Frog Fit Band and the CLIF Kid Zbar Protein bars.  We had a few last minute cancellations, but I think those that came had a good time. We met at a park and just […]

Enhance your Homeschool Science with an Eitech Space Shuttle

Blast off with Eitech

This is our second week of homeschool and Buddy’s first section in Science is the solar system. What better to imagine going to space to see the stars than to pretend you are flying on a space shuttle. (Too bad our children can’t ever go on a shuttle to space.) I was given the chance […]

Baby Q 6 and 7 Months

Baby Q 7 Months

I’ve been a slacker mom. I haven’t updated on Q since she was 5 months old. When she turned 6 months I was waiting for her doctor appointment to post so that I could share her recent measurements, but then I forgot about her appointment and she didn’t get in until a few days before […]

Stretch Your Cleaning with Viva Vantage

Stretch your cleaning with Viva Vantage

Full disclosure: this article is financially supported by Viva but all opinions are my own. I’ve used the same paper towel for a LONG time, because I like the fact that I can choose a size on it. I think I may have found my new favorite paper towel, though, in Viva® Vantage. I picked up […]

Teach Kindness and Acceptance with Netflix


It’s back to school time and it’s not just time to think about what teacher your child got or the giant list of school supplies. Back to school time is also a time to think about teaching your child about kindness and acceptance. My kids aren’t going back to a brick and mortar school because […]

My kids really enjoy getting to see Disney on Ice every year. As we are walking out they are already asking when we can see the next one. I think Monkey loves it the best because she always gets to see her Disney Princesses come to life. This time, Disney on Ice is presenting Princesses […]
