This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company. All opinions and content are my own. I’m partnering with Folgers® at Walmart through the Share A Cup & A Story campaign, to create personal connections with Veterans and honor their service to our country.
When you think about the United States of America, common themes often come to mind. Independence, freedom of speech, and the American dream are just some of the ideals associated with America. Those ideas were won through the efforts of others, many of whom even gave up their lives. As Veterans Day approaches, it’s a good opportunity to teach kids about the wonderful nation we live in and what was required to achieve our independence.

I remember the first car I bought: a Dodge Dakota. It wasn’t half bad, for a light duty truck. It can be exciting when it comes time to pick out a car, even when it’s not your first. Looking for something in your favorite color, that manual transmission you wanted, or perhaps something… sporty? Of course, there are also necessary considerations: do I need to haul things? How many seats do I need? What kind of mileage is this going to get? Looking back, there are many things I would tell myself to think about before taking the plunge of buying a used car. As a matter of fact, right now I am looking for a good family car that seats 6-8 and has four wheel drive, or all-wheel drive (4WD or AWD). With three little kids, we need to upgrade to a car that easily fits all 3 car seats with room to move and haul gear. These 4 tips can help you avoid hidden issues with used cars and make your future car shopping experience much easier.
We all have our favorite seasons and I love things about all of them. We had a lovely summer this year with some family travel and lots of backyard play, but now I’m ready for fall! Here are some things our family has already done to make the changing of the seasons feel festive and fun!
Do you have trouble figuring out what to eat for breakfast? It may seem that breakfast is the easiest meal of the day to skip. As a busy mom, I often drink a cup of coffee, feed the kids, wipe up a few messes, and realize around 11 am that I forgot to eat breakfast. I’m sure moms with kids who need to get out the door for school or working moms who leave the house early find it even harder to eat breakfast. Eating a filling breakfast is an ideal way to start the day because food boosts your metabolism, helps you think better, and gives you more energy to accomplish your to-do list. A protein-packed breakfast combined with morning exercise is a perfect way to start any day. I’m excited to tell you about some easy breakfast solutions that you can whip up while you are hunting for your kid’s shoes and reminding the kids to brush their teeth.

Transitioning from caring for a baby to engaging with young kids can be a hard change. I’m a stay-at-home mom with three kids under the age of 5 and I often struggle to come up with ideas about how to entertain my kids and teach them new things. I’ve found simple routines are helpful to schedule your day so kids know what to expect when they wake up. Just like babies have a feeding and napping schedule, kids benefit from routines for eating, playing, learning how to sit still, practicing following directions, and growing their attention spans. I’m excited to share my family routine tips that help create happier days.
