The Great Cellphone Debate #VZWBuzz

familybase

It’s hard being a social media mom.  I’m constantly on one device or another. My phone is never far from my reach.  My computer doesn’t not know what it means to be completely turned off.  I’m always on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, sometimes a little Pinterest.  So when my 7 year old, newly minted Kid Blogger, It’s So Ava, asks me for an iPhone, I struggle with a response. Do I want her to have a cellphone?  But how does a Kid Blogger, blog without all her social media tools?  She’s asking for an iPhone so she can instagram and […]

REVIEW: The Armadillo City

peekaboo

A clever name for the very clever Mamas & Papas Armadillo City!  Yes this mom got a chance to review yet another stroller, and this one is love.  If you’ve been following along, you know that I am all about compact.  The smaller packaging does it for me all the time now.  I simply can’t turn back!  The Armadillo City stroller is in their compact lightweight stroller category.  Coming in at only 15 pounds, it rivals any umbrella stroller.  Geared towards city families, I think it also bodes well for suburban families like my own.  While I definitely could get a […]
