  I am beyond excited to partner with Charlotte Parent once again to promote and bring you highlights from the next installment of their Mom Matters series. AS a mom of three kids, I have taken away so much from the previous two topics and I can’t wait to hear what this event’s speakers have to say about Building Your Child’s Character & Self Esteem. As a mom of a first grader, I already see his struggle with feeling good about himself and I think this is something ALL parent’s can use a little coaching...

Turn an ordinary breakfast into a mighty meal with your favorite superhero and celebrate the release of the NEW Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice movie!   We created a little trailer...

I don’t know about you, but once I pick up the kids from school, it seems like the rest of the day is a complete whirlwind until I tuck them into bed. Preschool pickup at 1, with not much time before 1st grade car pool, then it’s homework, activities, cleaning up and prepping for lunch then next day, and dinner – – all while attempting to get the littlest to nap so I have some free hands to get it all done! Sound familiar? I thought I’d share with you a few of my secrets for surviving those few hours between...

It’s that time of year! You know, when you go outside and you can’t feel your face. Even here in the Carolina’s, it gets down below freezing and I wonder why we don’t just move to Hawaii or some tropical beach somewhere. Unfortunately though for this mom, even when it’s 20 degrees outside, I still have to take my kids out and go to school, dance class, and the grocery store. Now that my bigger two are old enough to take their coats on and off themselves though, that part is a little easier, but having an eight...

I feel like we’re in three different stages right now with our kids. My big man is officially a big kid and doesn’t really need his mom anymore now that he’s almost seven. My older daughter is in the stage where she THINKS she doesn’t need me anymore, but she really still does then the baby is staring at her two older siblings with eyes wide and wishing she could be like them. That being said (and thanks to my friends at Silikids, MAM, b.box baby, & pediped for sharing some of their signature products to...

Having two daughters, I really want to start special traditions to share with them while they’re young that they’ll cherish forever. My oldest daughter, who is four also wants to be like mommy all the time. She likes to wear makeup, put on high heels, and show off sparkly jewelry, so it was a no brainer to add something flashy she can wear to her Christmas list. I love the idea of getting her a charm bracelet. She already loves mine and ooh’s and ahh’s over the gorgeous charms, so I thought why not get her one...

When I came across the Star from Afar, I was so excited to check it out. The day it showed up my doorstep to share with you all, I could hardly wait to start it with my kids. Having three young kids and wanting to instill in them the story of Jesus and why we celebrate this season is so important to me. I want my kids to grow up thinking of Christmas a Jesus’ birthday and being thankful for the gifts he’s given, but I also want them to have the traditions and fun memories that I had growing up too. Since my kids range from...

Tis’ the season! The lists have been set for a while now and the shopping is in full swing in our house.. we’re gearing up for our little babe’s first Christmas and as a family of five! With one more kiddo in the mix means an even longer Christmas list, so I’m relying on sweet deals from BJ’s Wholesale Club to help me check my items off my list.     BJ’s Top 10 Toys is sure to contain at least one thing on your kids’ lists this year. Our little lady has been watching the Olaf commercial...

  It’s so easy to get sucked into the madness during the holiday season. Sales, doorbusters, buy one get one free; falling into the trap of buying too much while forgetting the whole gift of the season is to spread love and joy to the people you love. Especially when you have young kids, it’s easy to forget why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. Every year I try to instill fun new traditions and activities to share why we celebrate Christmas with my kids. This year, I found this adorable itty bittys Nativity...
