Teaching Our Children to #ShareAMeal


I recently shared with you the staggering statistics... 16 million children under 18 years old live in “food insecure” households which means they don’t know where – or when – their next meal will be. Staggering. Heartbreaking. Unacceptable. We live in a land of plenty. Excess really. Yet there are young innocent children going to bed hungry. I had a discussion with Emma recently about this. She immediately wanted to help. Emma and I spent … [Read more...]

Heelys Back to School Line in Adult Sizes


Heelys Back to School Line in Adult Sizes Sample received for review. All opinions are my own. When my son was younger he had several pair of Heelys and he wore them everywhere. Yes, he was one of those boys you would see skating across Walmart causing havok (sorry about that!). It was a sad day in our house when his feet outgrew the sizes available. He is still a BIG kid at heart and would occasionally ask me if they bigger sizes … [Read more...]

Joovy Room Playard


Joovy Room Playard I was sent a Joovy Room Playard to try out with my youngest son. We were looking for a multi-functional item that didn't have an overly large footprint to help make my everyday life just a little easier. Pulling the Joovy Room Playard out of the box, the first thing that I noticed was it has weight to it. Weighing in at 34 pounds, it is a substantially well made yard. Even though it's a bit heavy, it's not a problem to … [Read more...]
