Don’t hit the “summer slump” — great activities for summer learning


If what they say is true, don’t let your kids fall victim to the “summer slide” which basically says that kids forget about half of what they learned the previous year during the summer months because of lack of “practice.” Every school year teachers begin their month of lessons just reviewing the basics from last […]

Mountain Buggy Duet sneak peak!


I am obsessed with the new mountain buggy duet despite the fact that I have not yet gotten a chance to touch it, push it or even see it live in real life.  The idea of a double stroller in the package of a single is the dream stroller for most parents.  Here is a […]

Who’s afraid of the dark? We handpicked the best nightlights for tots!


Every kid goes through it at one time or another — they become afraid of the dark. Some start it right away when they start sleeping on their own and others start it at the age when everything becomes “scary” – which for my daughter was around age 3. Although we’re over that fear now, […]

Clean an appliance that’s sole job is to clean? Really?


Ever thought of cleaning the inside of your washing machine?  No?  Yeah, me neither.  I guess I just figured with an appliance that is in existence to solely clean things, that maybe it would just keep itself clean.  I mean it’s cleaning my clothes with soap every week, right?  Doesn’t that just keep it clean? […]

Baby Gizmo Spotlight Review: Soft Bums OMNI Cloth Diaper


I’m no stranger to cloth diapers. I started cloth diapering my (almost) 9-year-old when he was 6-months-old and my second son was in cloth from birth. I do have to be honest though; my third son came when my second just turned two. I was overwhelmed (and had a bout of postpartum depression) and cloth […]

Great games for traveling by plane, train or automobile…!


Headed somewhere this summer where the kids will no doubt be looking at you for some form of entertainment while you reach your final destination. It’s inevitable…the wait time to get somewhere but while you’re thinking, “just get me there fast,” you can also pack a few fun travel games and activities that will have […]

Headed outdoors? Don’t forget these fabulous blankets!


There’s nothing worse then heading to the local park, finding the perfect spot under a shady tree to sit and watch the kids play to only find out that it’s completely wet where you just sat. Ugh…you know it’s happened to you and to me (yesterday in fact). While I’m not a fan of having […]
