FarFaria Review and Subscription Giveaway!

*I was given a subscription to try in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own. Do your preschoolers love to read or be read to? Mine both do, and while I’m happy to do it, reading 35 books a day can be time consuming!! When I was approached to review the FarFaria


Best Kids Books- Ages NB-3

Next in my Books for Kids series is my favorite books for the really small angels in your life. It is never too early to begin introducing your little ones to books, in fact we started reading to Luke while he was still in the womb! I’ve compiled our favorite board books and authors, check


Our Favorite Learning Toys and Games- Ages 5-8

Earlier in the week I wrote a post on our favorite learning toys for toddlers and preschool children, so I thought I’d write something about the toys and games we use for Luke as well. I never realized how educational something as simple as a board game could be until Luke was old enough to

I have been thinking about whether to send the twins to kindergarten when they turn five or to wait pretty much since they were born. I never understood why people held their kids back a year when it was just Luke, but I think that was because he was so old for his class to begin


Valentine’s Day Heart Suncatchers

I have seen things floating around Pinterest using Borax to make crystals, so I thought I’d try it myself. This activity was super easy and the results were great! The kids really enjoy looking at them hanging in the kitchen window. One word of caution, do the pouring of the Borax yourself, I’m not sure


5 Money Saving Tips for New Moms

I have a very good friend who is pregnant right now with her first child. That had me thinking how completely clueless I was when I had Luke. I spent a fortune on things I didn’t need to, and didn’t have things that I now couldn’t imagine living without. So this post is for the
