Cut the Cord

Before we left New Jersey, we decided that we would not be getting cable when we moved. I figured that spending $165 per month on cable and internet was unnecessary, and ultimately I was right. We now spend $78 per month and have been pretty happy with our decision. It took me a long time


Sensory Play Day- Apple Sensory Bin

I’m so excited for Fall! We have a lot of great Autumn themed activities planned for the next few weeks. One of my favorite things about this time of year is apples!! We are planning to go apple picking at the end of the month, and I can’t wait. I’ve already made apple chips and


Fun Fall Felt Board

Did you know that felt sticks to felt?? Me neither, until I read this post about a felt weather board by my friend and blogger extraordinaire, Stephanie at Two-Daloo. Hop over to her site and check it out, she has a ton of amazing activities for the littles! It got me thinking about all of


Birthday Party Etiquette

Luke’s 7th birthday is coming up on October 30, and its his year to have a party. He had a party during his last year in Montessori, which was a small class. We had a bounce house at our home, and I was able to invite everyone in his class. Now that he is in

Should All Schools Be Nut Free?

I read an article the other day that completely changed my way of thinking about food allergies. I knew that peanut allergies could be really severe and cause anaphylaxis, but I guess it never really occurred to me that people actually die from exposure.

I’m Back!!!

I’m finally done! (At least for the next ten days) I spent nearly an entire month without leaving my house other than to grocery shop. I know, nominate me for mom of the year. After reading that passing rates are only about 10% for first time takers, I had to put in 200-300 hours of


Are My Kids Missing Out?

I was sitting here thinking today about what a good brother my oldest is. I have never once heard him complain about the twins, and he helps me every single day with them. That got me to thinking, is he missing out? Are the twins missing out on things in life because they are twins?


I LOVE Target!

I went to Target today, mostly because I wanted to get out of the house, but also to pick up some things for vacation. I always look in the dollar spot right when you walk in the door, because I’ve found some really great, really cheap things there in the past. I’m going to be
