What does your morning routine look like? For me, mornings are usually rushed as I’m trying to help kids and get myself ready for the day. I’m not one of those moms who wakes up far before my kids, mostly because I work at night when I can be most productive. I still want to take care of my skin, hair and immunity so I need to find simple solutions that allow me to maximize my time and healthy routines. Here are some of my latest health and beauty care favorites that I’ve been using this fall!
When you think about the United States of America, independence, freedom of speech, and the American dream are just some of the ideals that may come to mind. Veterans Day is a good opportunity to teach kids about the sacrifices that others made to achieve our independence.
When tough news hits the headlines, it can be tempting to gloss it over or hide the facts, especially when talking with children. As soon as my husband and I started talking about the recent Las Vegas shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival which left 59 people dead and hundreds injured, my daughter had questions. “What happened, Mommy? What did a bad guy do?” It can be challenging for parents to know how much to share and in which manner. Here are some ideas for how to share hard news with your kids.
Do you have a hard time leaving the house with the kids, even to just run a quick errand or pick up a gift? Me too. The Baby Cubby is a unique resource that offers many of my favorite brands within a very user-friendly interface. You can even create a gift registry to share with your friends!
San Francisco is known for great sourdough bread, delicious chocolate, scenic bay views and whimsical trolley cars.

Traveling with young kids? This summer we took a family trip down the West Coast. Here are some of our favorite stops in Washington and Oregon that were fun, inexpensive, and memorable for us to visit with kids.
We love exploring new places with our kids. I’m excited to share the highlights from our family visit to Mount St. Helens lava tubes and Ape Cave in Washington State.
Girls love pretending to be mermaids. I know because when I was a child I loved the idea of mysterious mermaids with shimmery tails and under-the-sea hairstyles. The last few years mermaids have been trending in the form of dolls, mermaid tail blankets, room decor and even cookies! My daughter had a mermaid-inspired birthday party and decorated her room with mermaid pennant banners and pillows. Here are some fun ideas for all girls who love mermaids!
Do you have a picky eater? Sometimes it’s about all a mom can handle to get a child to eat their lunch. My kids have gone through stages of pickiness during meals. My oldest loved eating everything as a baby; kalamata olives, goat cheese, spaghetti, artichoke, you name it. She’s become quite a bit more picky but still is often willing to try new foods. My little guy is all about meat and cheese which he eats almost every meal. When kids go through stages of picky eating, parents can use simple strategies to encourage their kids to eat healthy food. I’m excited to share some easy ways to make meals fun and healthy and sneak in some veggies too!
