Anytime POPSUGAR sends me a Must Have Box to try it feels like my birthday. But, it turns out this month is actually the 5th birthday of the POPSUGAR Must Have Box! Words like celebrate, gratitude, loyalty, smile and friendship describe this month’s full-size products. Check out some of my favs!
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.
Fourth of July is over and summer is in full swing. Every day my kids have spent morning till past dinner time outside with the neighborhood kids. They’re running, laughing, riding bikes and using their imagination. It’s exactly the summer I would wish for them. Even though they’re getting plenty of play time in, I want their brains to be active, too.
I started reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo four days ago, and I’m now half way through. I find myself carrying it around to try and sneak in a few pages. Instead of watching TV at night I’ve been diving into this. It’s been a nice change!
When your new baby is your fourth child, life around you still moves full speed ahead. Because of our hectic life at the moment, my kids have enjoyed more take-out for dinner and food on the go. I recently learned Wendy’s has some yummy, fresh options for the summer.
I’ve found I need to keep the kids busier than usual since my two-week-old has more pressing needs at this moment in time. To keep my other three occupied I’ve been pulling out games and puzzles from a hallway closet that we haven’t used in a while and have been a little more lenient with screen time.
The most ironic thing about pregnancy is that you develop mommy brain, yet this time in your life brings a host of things to remember. Thankfully, the books and apps are there to remind you what not to eat, how many calories to intake, what symptoms you may be feeling and how important it is to take a prenatal vitamin.
Last year, my family and I took a big leap and started composting in celebration of Earth Day. I’ve picked up some new habits this year that have helped our family be greener and I wanted to share them with you. You can start incorporating some of them as soon as today!
