Behind the Soccer Uniform

While this is post is part of a sponsored relationship with Post Consumer Brands, all of our thoughts are proudly our own.It’s Saturday morning and I pull up to the soccer field with one minute to spare. The car door opens and my uniform-clad child hops out, grabs his bag and jogs up to his […]

The Ace in Your Diaper Bag

As we know, moms wear many hats. I’m going to take it a step further and say diaper bags do too. For me, it serves as my purse, portable trash can, charging station, vending machine, bathtub (thanks sanitizer gel), closet and more.

Show Him the Love

In my opinion, dads are often the unsung heroes of the parental unit. I’m so grateful for an annual holiday to take the time to pause and reflect on the important role father’s play in the lives of children. But then, why stop at just one day? Reflecting on my own marriage, I became aware […]

From Phone to Hands: Print your Photos!

Raise your hand if you have thousands (tens of thousands?) of phone photos that you’ve never printed. Basically, my entire children’s lives are documented on my iPhone and I’ve literally spent hours awake in bed at night concerned about the fate of all of those images. I decided enough was enough and went on the […]
