If you’re from New England, you may have heard of or eaten a dish called American Chop Suey. It’s a simple dish involving ground beef, elbow macaroni, seasonings and sometimes vegetables. I grew up with it and I love that my kids like it, too. Since I don’t want to eat the same things every week, I decided to put a twist on this family staple.
My wardrobe has been a bit of an issue as of late. I’m four months post partum and most of my pants don’t fit the way they used to. And I’ve come to terms with the fact they may never fit the way I want them to again. My body has carried four children and that’s pretty amazing. If I need to dress accordingly, no biggie!
My oldest is in first grade so I didn’t really have a huge school supply list for her. I picked up some #2 pencils, highlighters, glue sticks and boxes of tissues. And even though she didn’t need a lot of actual school stuff, I did want to make sure we were covered in other back to school areas.
I’ve tried to make this summer memorable for my three oldest and I think I’ve succeeded. We’ve been able to go to the beach, enjoy pool days, visit the zoo and multiple playgrounds. It has not been easy. On most of those outings, my mom, sister or husband have been there to help. I’ve also had the help of some really awesome products.
This is my first time trying ONESIES® Brand and I love how soft the pants and bodysuit are. Mix and match separates are definitely the way to go when building a wardrobe. You’ll have more flexibility with outfit changes, and plenty of options if you happen to change your baby’s clothes more than once a day.
I’ve been searching for ways to make the transition from summer to school easier and have come across some great lunch hacks. I’ve tested them and they all work. Hooray for easier lunches!

It looks like a game, but your kids will really be learning math. Osmo Numbers has been a great product to help my kids stay away from the Summer Slide. It’s been a fantastic tool because it’s showing my kids there are many ways to solve a math problem.
