Over the years, I’ve gotten better at packing snacks super quick. With little kids, I’ve learned you have a small window to do just about anything, so you’ve got to move fast. In my opinion, as long as you have snacks in your pantry and refrigerator, you will be ready to leave for a car ride at a moment’s notice.
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.
I hope by now you’ve all put it in your calendar to visit your local Dunkin’ Donuts on May 24 for Iced Coffee Day. We are just days away, and to celebrate, Jackie Bradley Jr. from the Boston Red Sox will be at a preview event on May 22.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ annual event is a fundraising initiative that benefits the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence. This is the one day a year where anyone who buys an iced coffee on May 24th becomes a hero to some very deserving kids!
You guys. Please accept my apologies for making this announcement here on the blog 11 days after baby #4 was born. I’m just now starting to get my act together. I wanted to introduce you to our little miracle, Crosby Riley.
We don’t always go out to eat, but I always have food on me. It’s helped me on so many occasions when we are running to and fro. I will admit we frequent Dunkin’ Donuts at least two times a week, though. If you’re from Rhode Island, too, I’m willing to bet you go there just as much or more! 😜
Get ready to start sipping! It’s that time of year again where your coffee addiction can help a very worthy cause. On May 24, 2017, Dunkin’ Donuts will be donating $1 to Hasbro Children’s Hospital for every Iced Coffee sold throughout the day.
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!
Usually, I like to come up with my own creations, but this year I’m too busy to bother because baby #4 will be here in 22 days and there is just so much to be done. If you’re in a similar boat, fear not, I found some super cute craft ideas on Pinterest that your kids will enjoy making and very little supplies are needed.
