The Life of the Lunchbox: Entenmann's Little Bites and Nature Harvest Giveaway #Sponsored


How are you all adjusting to the back to school routine, was it a seamless transition or were there a few bumps in the road? For us, one thing that makes it easier to get into the swing of things is going with what we know and keeping things simple, especially when it comes to packing school lunches. Our kids aren't really fans of the choices they have in the cafeteria so we pack tried and true favorites that we know they love and that won't end up in the trash can or still sitting in their lunchbox at the end of the day. 

After a while though we may easily fall victim to the routine of packing the same items for their lunches and it's sometimes nice to have a little fun with how it's presented to our lil' monsters and they can even help make them!

What You Should Know About The Zika Virus and Getting Pregnant #GoHealthUC #ad



Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post created in collaboration with Stiletto Media  and Northwell Health-Go Health Urgent Care to provide awareness and information on the Zika virus.  All opinions are my own.

The plan was: we’d pack our bags for a week long vacation with the kids - sometime in June or August and we’d enjoy a little peaceful quiet time and maybe even try to conceive a baby. Yeah, baby fever is pretty rampant in our house, it’s all anyone can talk about these days. And so the hubby and I figured in celebration of our 8th wedding anniversary we’d try to work on baby #3 in Mexico where we went on our honeymoon. We were all excited for what we thought was a romantic gesture to celebrate our family…...That was until, the Zika Virus ended up on the cover of our newspapers and all over our social media channels and we realized we’d have to keep our baby making party here in the states.

Let's Get Curious! 4 Ticket #Giveaway to the Liberty Science Center


It's said "The future belongs to the curious" and as a parent and our children's first educator isn't it just amazing when we get to witness their little minds explore and question the world around them? This year marks the 75th anniversary of the appearance of the adorable and adventurous Curious George in American children's literature and we had the chance to check out the Let's Get Curious exhibit that opened on National curiosity day at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey.

Disclosure: As a Liberty Science Center Blog Ambassador for the day, I have been provided with vouchers for my visit. All opinions expressed are 100% our own.

Kazoops: Kids Discover the Power of Imagination with Debut of New Netflix Show


Most of our kids have returned to the classroom or will be after the long labor day weekend and as a mom, former preschool and elementary school educator it's always been an enlightening experience watching both my boys and students question the world around them and to use their imaginations to make up their own stories and engage in creative play. At home we try to encourage deeper thinking and want our kids to feel as comfortable as possible seeking answers to whatever they are curious about. In the animated series Kazoop {debuts on Netflix on September 2nd, 2016} kids will follow the adventures of six year old Monty and his adorable best friend names Jimmy Jones, the family pet pig.  Monty uses his big imagination to challenge notions of everyday life such as "Why do all games need rules?", "Why can't we have more than one best friend?" and demonstrates the value of critical thinking.
