Not only were you coming but you would be joining this party fast. I still vividly recall the crisis {Read More}

Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix

I mean, I like plants and flowers but I kind of have to leave them right next to each other or I forget about them. They also have to be next to the sink or they don’t get any water. However, {Read More}

My family is pretty good about brushing regularly. I am lucky. My kids understand the importance of brushing their teeth or at least they believe me when I tell them that their teeth will fall out of their mouth if they don’t brush.

Tips to Ensure Children Maintain a Balanced Diet #tysonnuggets

Making certain that my children maintain a balanced diet is something that concerns me greatly. My two older children do an amazing job but I am a little concerned that we dropped the ball with the younger one. We have babied her from the start and as a result, maintaining a balanced diet is not something that I am sure she does enough of. 1. Take the majority of choices away when it comes to dinner.
