Gather ‘Round For A Story

This post is sponsored by Circle Round. Thanks, Circle Round! One of the things I love about Annabel’s teacher is how much she wants her class to enjoy reading. Every night, the kids are encouraged to spend 15 minutes reading anything they like. This can be a book, a cereal box, a comic strip…anything that your kid…

You Better Work, Kid

This post is sponsored by Chore Check. Thank you, Chore Check! About a year ago, Annabel started begging for an allowance. We sat down with her and figured out some chores she could do to earn money, and things went great for about…oh, maybe a week or two. After that, the chore chart I made…

What The Heck Is Pyridoxine?

I’ve partnered with JohnsonsBaby for this post. Thanks, JohnsonsBaby!

How I Saved $450 On Holiday Threds

This post is sponsored by thredUP. Thanks, thredUP! You may remember a few months ago I discovered the online shopping site thredUP and became OBSESSED with it. For those of you unfamiliar, thredUP has women’s and kids’ high-quality secondhand clothes (and sometimes they’re even brand-new with tags!), with really nice brands and designers like Gap and Madewell and Michael…

The Closest Thing To A Time Machine

This post is sponsored by Legacybox. Thank you, Legacybox! When my brother and I were growing up, my parents were great about recording moments. My mom was a fantastic photographer, and my dad had a few different video cameras. Over the last 10 years, I have painstakingly gone through thousands of old photos, scanning and…
