Why I gave my 8 year old a cell phone and where we found the cheapest wireless plans

Walmart Family Mobile for Back to School #shop

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. See why I think that my son should have #Phones4School. I feel like a hypocrite. I really do. You see, I said I would never get a cell phone for an elementary school-aged child. But, things aren’t quite the same as when I originally stated that. Johnny is a busy kid. He has several after school activities he is involved in and has friends he likes to hang out with. The thing about this age is that I don’t have to be present for all of his activities. He is old enough to go alone sometimes. But, that also means that he needs to be able to get in […]

Learning and having fun with LeapPad3

August 19, 2014
LeapPad3 Review

Disclosure: We received a LeapPad 3 for the purpose of review in promotion with LeapFrog and Mom Select. All thoughts and opinions are my own.   My kids, thankfully, love learning toys. Being able to have fun and learn at the same time means the world to me because I have found that they fight back when it comes to learning alone. They are smart kids but they just want to have fun! (cure the “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” song). We received the LeapPad3 a few months ago and the kids have been playing with it ever since. I say playing but this truly is more than just a fun toy. All three of them are using the LeapPad3 and getting some educational […]

It’s a new school year and I have 2 attending!

August 15, 2014
kids first day school

Wednesday was the first day of school here. We had all of our supplies ready to go and uniforms washed. It was just a matter of getting up and out the door. But, it was so much more this year. I now have 2 kids in school. Johnny started third grade this year and it was just like any other day of school. He got dressed and was ready to go. This is old business to him now. Joley, though, started Kindergarten. While I was an emotional wreck when Johnny started (which I blame in part to the pregnancy hormones pumping at the time), I was much calmer with Joley’s first day out of my house. I know her teacher because she was Johnny’s as […]

Looking through the gas mask… what I believe is happening in Ferguson

August 14, 2014
#ferguson tear gas

I have refrained from talking about what is happening in Ferguson, MO on my blog. Why? Well because I try to keep things light and friendly here. That said, I am going to try not to incite any anger but I feel the need to state what I am seeing. For those that aren’t aware, Ferguson is a suburb in St Louis County. It is where I worked as a teenager and spent a large amount of my time as my best friend lived there. I currently live about 25 minutes from Ferguson but St Louis is a community and I still feel a connection to a place I spent so much of my teen years at.  What has happened in Ferguson is so disheartening […]
