Teach Kids to Swim & Love Water with a Mermaid Tail

Teach Kids to Swim & Love Water with a Mermaid Tail

Learning how to swim is a great skill kids can use year round. We love going to the lake in the summer and visiting our indoor community pool in the winter. If you are going to be around pools and hot tubs, it’s especially important to teach kids how to be safe around water. Sun Tail Mermaid fins are a fun way to encourage kids to learn how to swim and feel comfortable in the water.

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

The winter holidays are my favorite time of the year.

It’s also fun to buy kids new outfits for those special holiday celebrations. One of our traditions is allowing our kids to open one gift on on Christmas Eve, usually new pajamas. OshKosh B’gosh has affordable and adorable (or dashing) kids’ clothing for all your kids style needs. These modern kids clothing designs include outfit sets, pajamas, shoes, outwear and stylish separates!

Comfy Nights with Tuft & Needle

Comfy Nights with Tuft & Needle

It can be hard to find the perfect mattress; especially one that makes two people think that it’s perfect.  My husband Andy and I have been married for 9 years but that doesn’t mean we like everything the same — although Andy did convert me over to dark chocolate and spicy salsa. If my husband likes soft and I like cushy support, our Tuft & Needle mattress comes pretty close to perfection; lofty support, not too cushy and not too firm. Tuft & Needle seems to have thought of everything. Plus this mattress comes in a box and ships through the mail with Free Shipping and a 100-Night Sleep Trial on all Tuft & Needle products.
