Heading back to school is a big deal when you’re 5 years old. Bear is counting down the days to when she gets to see her friends again (you know, the most important part of school to a kindergartener).
But this back to school season is different this time around. Little Man is heading to school with her, starting preschool next month [big, huge crocodile mom tears].
Before the school years starts, I sat down with both of them to see what their goals are for this school year. Their answers, in true form, cracked me up.
The following post about breastfeeding and breast pumps is sponsored and written by the folks at Aeroflow. This topic is near to my heart as a struggling breastfeeding first-time mom and exclusive pumper after my son’s nursing strike. I also used Aeroflow to obtain a free breast pump through my insurance in 2014 (so I can confirm that this is legit!).
According to the CDC, breastfeeding rates have steadily increased over the last few years, and it’s no surprise why since there are many health benefits for mom and baby. But while there are high breastfeeding initiation rates, the breastfeeding rates drop among infants at 3 and 6 months.
I partnered with Juicy Juice for this easy popsicle recipe in celebration of the Cars 3 movie premier. This post contains affiliate links.
As the sun rose on Friday morning, so did a little man chanting “Caws moowie tu-night? Tu-niiiight?” Yes, buddy, we’re going to see Cars 3 tonight. “Ma Caws moowie! I get dwessed.” But before he could even change out of his racecar PJs, I had a surprise for him and Bear. The night before, I froze some Juicy Juice in ice cube trays for them to celebrate the big day. Yes, mom of the year right here, folks – popsicles for breakfast!

Finding faith-based toys is important to me and my family. Of course Disney Princesses and Hot Wheels fill our playroom, but it’s nice to have toys that help to illustrate biblical teachings and stories from the Bible. I was recently introduced to Cubbie Lee Toys, a wooden toy company that offers puzzles, train tracks, and, my personal favorite, a little Noah’s Ark!
School is out and summer is here! If you’re like me, the last thing you want consuming your child’s attention this summer is devices.
Remember when we were kids and summer meant days at the pool, family bike rides and a neighborhood game of backyard baseball?
A special thank you to Castaway Bay in Sandusky, Ohio for providing me with complimentary tickets in exchange for the following post.
Each time I visit Castaway Bay, I always find something new to do with the kids. Maybe it’s because each year we visit, they’re another year older and ready for a new adventure. This was our third weekend trip to Castaway Bay, an indoor water park + hotel in Sandusky, Ohio.
