While planning our recent weekend New York City trip, I learned a few tips and tricks on how my family could save money for vacation. While most of my tips are strategic, the goal is that our vacations (big or small) do not break the bank.
Last month we traveled to New York City to meet with our West Coast family and while I was excited during the planning process, I had some worries that this big city trip would be too ambitious for my group at this point in their lives. But, our reservation was booked and it was non-refundable, so we went!
I have to say, using a battery-operated nasal aspirator as opposed to a manual one, makes the world of a difference. This is the first time I’ve used one and the ease of it actually surprised me!
As a seasoned mom of one spirited little toddler, I feel like I have some more knowledge and grasp on items that are necessary – and unnecessary – to help care for baby. Here’s a list of some items I loved the first time around – as well as new items I’m excited to try.
Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for kids because they bring home a ton of “mail.” My daughter loves to hand out her Valentine’s cards and especially likes to receive them. It’s funny how when you’re little “mail” is a good thing. As adults we get excited if our mailbox is empty!
I like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by doing something fun with my husband that focuses on us as a couple and what we enjoy about each other. We certainly do not go out like we used to, but we love to enjoy ourselves at home.
Kids go through phases often with food. Some weeks they want waffles for breakfast every day. Other times all they want is bagels. But, there are certain snacks my kids like that they don’t get sick of. One of those snacks is Entenmann’s® Little Bites®.
There are so many things to love about the holiday season, but a big reason I love it so much is because of family traditions. Edaville Family Theme Park could be quite possibly New England’s most memorable holiday tradition. It’s a beautifully kept theme park that goes all out for the holiday season.
Each year I post about homemade tree ornaments; check out some from year’s past like the Santa Hand and Reindeer Hand Ornaments or the Cookie Cutter Ornaments. You’ll love this year’s creations because they’re easy and a toddler or elementary aged child can do them.
The gifts I chose for this year’s gift guide are aimed at babies, little kids and your favorite furry four-legged friend. I picked practical, but fun gifts. And with two-day shipping happening at a lot of online stores, you can have gifts delivered and wrapped by the weekend!
The holidays and turn of the new year is a great time to start taking care of you. I’ve been hearing a lot about probiotics and how beneficial they are for you, but never really knew that there were products available for my children, too.
