We love to travel in our family! I personally don’t know what I ever did without having a GPS system. Oh wait, I used to print out maps online and use the Thomas Guide and had no really effective way to get around traffic and congested areas when traveling. Not anymore! Now we can travel […]...

It’s summertime – woo hoo! What does that mean in our home? That means lots of free time for the kids. With all their electronics today (ya know the tablets, laptops, PS3, Nintendo 3DS), our kids would like to think that they could keep pretty busy during the summer. However, as a parent, we’d like […]...

I find that as my children grow older they are starting to have their own opinions, and we don’t always see eye-to-eye. They don’t just do what I tell them to, or eat what I want them to. However, one of the things we do agree on are Chobani® products.  My yogurts started disappearing more […]...

  I’ve had a LifeLock subscription for quite some time…and love it! Anytime I apply for a credit card (among other things), I receive notifications that an attempt was made. This is great to know, especially when it affects my credit score. I also receive notifications if my credit score changes and even if a […]...

  Frank and I have 6 kids, so you can imagine the amount of dust and dirt that can be tracked into the house! Since we have white carpets in our home (not by our choice, but because we rent), we have made a rule that all children remove their shoes at the door before […]...

  I remember how much I loved summer as a kid! I could sleep in, had no homework and could pretty much just chill out. I also remember feeling somewhat bored sometimes. I mean there are only so many games you can play and movies you can watch, right? Thanks to The Motherhood, I recently […]...

  My kids love everything LeapFrog. Ever since they were infants we’ve been purchasing their products. In my opinion, LeapFrog continuously puts out quality toys and their latest venture, LeapTV, is no different. We were lucky enough to sample their product. Call me crazy, but I brought home 8 kids one afternoon from school (yes, all […]...

  I don’t know about you, but with my crazy schedule, I’m lucky if I get to put make-up on, much less have a skin routine.  I’ve tried to tell my kids that ever since they came into the world, not only have I started getting grey hairs, but I’m also noticing more and more […]...

My kids love building things – especially cars, planes, boats and more!  We recently received the Mega Bloks SpongeBob Squarepants™ Invisible Boatmobile Rescue and we had a blast putting it together (and then playing with it afterwards)!  Sammy couldn’t wait to get his hands on the vehicle put together and zoom it around the room with Sp...

I taught my child the importance of oral health care with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #besweetsmart.  With 6 children in our home, it’s important that we set morning and nighttime routines.  In the mornings, they have “chores” that they complete.  These chores include brushing their teeth, brushing...
