Mifold: A Booster Seat Review

Recently our family traveled cross-country for a wedding in a big city. As all of you know, the planning of travel and logistics with kids is never fun.

Camping with Kids in Arizona

Before I dig into this post, I want to give you all a flashback into my life. I was 15 years old and on an overnight camping trip. Food wasn’t cooked properly. There was an obscene amount of rain. Sleeping bags were set on an incline. No sleep. Just sliding down a hill towards a […]

Produce Shaming

I feel like one doesn’t have to search long or far through the internet or among close friends for a story where someone was shamed for a parenting or lifestyle choice. I have a fairly sound and respecting group of family and friends. Up until recently, I was confidently able to say that it had not […]

Cupcakes for the Grown Ups {No Sharing Required!}

I am all about some shamrock shaped sugar cookies with green sprinkles to celebrate the Luck O’ The Irish…but in recent years I found a recipe I love. Please note that this treat is for all of you PARENTS.  This recipe contains alcohol and is NOT kid friendly. Treats? That the kids, literally legally, cannot touch? […]
