Gearing up for school every morning can be quite the challenge in our home. My children are so much like me when it comes to getting good sleep. We basically can never get enough go it! So, when it comes to mornings, they’re usually pretty slow to get out of bed. Over time, I have found tips and tricks to get them up a bit faster. Offering breakfast seems to work because they are at the table faster before I am even done picking out their school clothes.Continue Reading

Family Fun at Dolphin Mall Miami

I have been compensated in the form of a Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free in exchange for an honest review of Dolphin Mall.

Dolphin-Mall-08Is a couple more weeks too much to ask for? I feel like we need a vacation from our summer vacation! There’s been a whole lot of relaxing going on in the past few weeks, but that’s totally a good thing. It was much needed. Sometimes, we all just need a little time to decompress and wind down. Often times, I feel like there’s not much to do locally. And anything that is here, we have done on several occasions so it’s basically played out for us. 

When I’m feeling brave enough to venture out with my two littles, it takes thought and planning. My children are very well-behaved, and I’m not just saying that for the sake of this post. They really are! However, shopping is a full blown mission to which I’d like to abort before we’re even out of the car. I usually go alone to our local mall because the kids get bored, but when we go to Dolphin Mall in Miami, the kids don’t give me any issue. There is so much for them to do that they sort of ‘deal’ with me. They know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Continue Reading

Making Memories with Dad and Gillette® Mach3® Signature Edition Razor

This post is sponsored by Vocalpoint, P&G and Gillette. All opinions are my own.

Making-Memories-with-Dad-01One thing that always gets me is seeing Dad’s out with their children. It’s not very often that I see this, but when I do, it genuinely warms my heart. I truly believe that children need their fathers, so seeing them out having ice cream, walking in the park or shopping makes me so happy inside. I realize how lucky I am to have a husband who is so involved with our children. Although he works crazy hours, he always finds time to spend with the kids. And the best part? The kids are totally infatuated with him.Continue Reading
