Cruisin’ with Mickey

Last summer, my parents took my family on a Disney Cruise. My kids were at great ages for Disney – 6 and 8, and my parents wanted to do Disney with the kids…without having to actually “do” Disney with the kids. My parents aren’t amusement park people. And while Disney World and Disneyland are hardly […]

Thrifting for Kids' Clothes

Pop Some Tags: Thrifting Kids’ Clothing

When I was pregnant with our daughter, my husband and I read the book Redefining Girly (and have since recommended it to every parent we know, including you!).

The Year That Tried to Break Us

Confession: I’m a Cafeteria Catholic Sending My Kids To Catholic School

I’m not a fan of the term Cafeteria Catholic, but that’s who I am. There are a lot of us, too! If you’re not familiar with the term, we’re Catholics who take what they like in the Catholic doctrine and leave the stuff they can’t stomach for someone else’s plate. For me, my belief in God, a higher power, something that is bigger than […]

Giddyup! It’s Time for Kindergarten Roundup!

If you’ve listened closely throughout March, you may have heard the slight whimpering of moms mixed with the nervous excitement of kids. And no, I’m not talking about everyone’s feelings about spring break. I’m talking about something exclusive to the four- and five-year-olds and their moms. Yes, it’s time for Kindergarten Roundup!

Twin Mom’s Guide to Surviving the First Year

I have to start out by saying this guide isn’t about patting myself on the back because I’m a twin mom and have all the things figured out. Because I sure as heck don’t!
