My kids love the Disney Imagicademy apps. After trying out Mickey’s Magical Math World recently, they had a chance to use Mickey’s Magical Arts World this week. It brings back their favorite Disney characters (Minnie! Mickey! Donald!), and takes kids through a variety of art forms — from drawing and painting to playing with textures, from designing and […]
I can NOT tell you how many times, when my babies were little, I had an idea for a product either for babies or their parents.
I was given a free product to test for this review. All opinions are my own. It’s a new year, and I need a new little fix-me-up. I’m a lover of lots of foods and drinks that stain my teeth (hello, Red Wine and Coffee. You two make me whole, but also make my teeth […]
We just got back from a long trip. This one was actually our first plane trip as a family of six. Usually we drive. We’ll drive around 2,000 miles or so for our summer vacation. I’ve written before about our tips and tricks for road trips, and I discovered that most of them hold up for […]

Thanks to Barnes & Noble for sponsoring this post! Barnes & Noble is my happy place. There’s one near us that has a kids’ storytime every Friday morning, so I take whichever kids are home (and whatever friends are around), and we head over where they hear stories and play at the train table and […]
I was given a free product from JORD for review purposes. All opinions expressed below are my own. My husband and I are in the midst of a small civil war. Don’t worry about us. We’ll be fine. It just never occurred to me when I got a lovely men’s watch from JORD that he, […]
