I’m dealing with some pretty picky eaters these days. Nothing new if you’re a parent used to trying to get your kids to eat healthy meals. Recently I was offered the opportunity to try something new from Cache Valley, their new Creamy Greek Yogurt Dips, and I thought they might be on to something. The […]

I’m a real book worm. I love to read and usually sneak in a little time during naps, before bed, or even on those blissful times that Hubby takes the kids for a few hours. So when I was recently asked to review “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness for BlogHer, I jumped at […]

So sweetness has been getting out of hand in her demands to be In Control, with a capital I. C. At first little things like letting her choose which jacket she’d like to wear was enough to make her more than happy for hours. We thought we were really on to something with that. “Wow,” […]

One of the things I’ve found so very handy from my mommy pals is advice on things that make life a little easier. This is one thing that I’ve been really liking. It’s a trash bin for your car. It’s weighted and has Velcro on the bottom so it sticks to the carpet right where […]
