Check Out The Dash Robot at Best Buy #TechToys

This is a sponsored post for Best Buy. I couldn’t have been but nine-or-so years old when one of my mother’s day care parents bought our family an IBM computer for Christmas as a “thank you” for taking such wonderful care of their children. He was an IBMer, so he got a great deal on […]

Taco Macaroni for School Lunch #BackToSchool #NaturalFoods

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon Organic. Back to school time is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe it’s because of the return to a routine after a lazy, crazy summer? Could be it’s the fresh haircuts on my kids, the fancy new duds my kids choose for their new […]

A Little Family Time with Netflix

New! JOHNSON’S HEAD-TO-TOE baby cleansing cloths Make Parents Lives Easier #LittleWonders

I’m a member of the JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES council. I am consistently amazed at how filthy my kids can seemingly get when they play outside. I mean, seriously, was I this dirty when I was a kid?
