Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]

It’s a Merry Merry Baby’s First Christmas!

court

I can’t believe my Marcus is turning 6 years old in just a few days! It seems like just yesterday I was telling myself I wasn’t in labor because it was simply too early.  I even managed to sit and breath through breakfast with my daughter and husband before asking to be dropped off at the hospital just to be checked out.  I remember being so sure that they would just watch me for a few hours and then send me on home. At exactly 36 weeks he decided to make an earlier arrival and what an entrance he made! […]

Sesame Street has always been huge in our house. For the last five years (since our first was born) our children (and even their parents) have loved watching our favorite Sesame Street characters in the many clever parodies and skits that keep our kids entertained and engaged. It’s equally exciting to see these characters come to life when Sesame Street Live! comes to town. We have taken our children to the shows in the past and regardless of their ages, it is always a memorable experience for everyone. This year’s performance is called Sesame Street Live! “Let’s Dance!” and is […]

Game Day Ready with KeyFoods

rivals

KeyFoods has been my neighborhood market since I was first moved to town when I was 2 years old and I love that it continues to be the market my kids will now know as the place to get anything and everything from breakfast foods to game day necessities like Bounty, Charmin, Tide and Dawn.  I remember the first time my parent’s felt I was old enough to go to KeyFoods all by myself, list in hand and buy groceries. I was so excited but quickly was overwhelmed with the responsibility. They had the friendliest small town-feel staff then, and still […]
