    ShareThis is a sponsored post! So yo may recall that I had a post recently about the little documentary The Way Kids See It by Project Sunlight and I promised a little activity to follow.

  • Do you know where your fruits are?

  • Did you know they have a kid’s room at Fenway for #RedSox games? #RedSoxMoms #RedSoxFamily
    Share Did you know they have a kid’s room at Fenway for Red Sox games? Yeah, me neither. A big, I mean super-big, reason I’m writing this post is to tell you that. Firstly I’m a Red Sox Mom! Has that sunk in? I can understand your envy (even if you’re rooting for the other team) but this is the RED SOX! I know! I could tell you how much of an honor...

  • RECIPE: Tatsoi and Cottage Cheese in Puff Pastry #ad #NewHoodCC
    ShareA little while back Hood asked me if I would host a party to get my friends to try out the new Hood Cottage Cheese and I even though the last few weeks (months) of school felt like I like in a fast forward time machine with just about everything due (concerts + field trips + MCAs + projects + art shows etc) I said yes. I love parties. I find them utterly exhausting...

  • 20 Favorite Chapter Book Series for Elementary Girls!
    ShareI don’t know how much of credit I can give myself for the fact that my kids are both pretty amazing readers. I did not do the teach your baby to read stuff but by 2 years old they both were readers. This has also meant that we progressed to chapter books pretty quickly. We are always exploring new chapter book series to read and I thought I could share some...

  • Project Sunlight’s “The Way Kids See It!” #brightfuture #ad
    ShareThis is a sponsored post! My kids get out of school next week and I want to badly absorb as much of them as I can. I’m in love with this age and want to  see everything. It is also why I am decreasing my workload but when Unilever approached with this new campaign, I said yes. The essence was exactly my focus with my kids so it made total sense. Project Sunlight, is...

  • Win passes to special screening of Earth To Echo (80 available)! #Boston
    ShareI wrote about Earth to Echo before, but I am still excited to watch the movie. There is going to be a screening at Wednesday, 6/11/2014 in Boston but I am going to miss it but hopefully a few of my readers may make it there.

  • 8 Summer Essentials from BJ’s Wholesale under $50!
    ShareIf you’re like me, you drool over every bit of summer outdoor stuff and indoor ones too, thinking this year I will buy this, that, and this. But the sheer amount of stuff you need to get the “look” is overwhelming both in effort or cash. This year when BJ’s Wholesale asked me if I wanted to spy stuff with a $50 gift card from them, I did not...

  • Win a stay at Great Wolf Lodge New England for 4 (including meals)!
    ShareA few years ago I spoke at a conference at the Great Wolf Lodge in PA. I ended up taking my little daughter who got to enjoy the waterpark while I was speaking with a friend of mine. Since she was little and I was so absorbed with conference duties I did not explore too much of the lodge but I vowed to go go with both my kids and to explore everything about it. Well...

  • Pottery Barn Kids partners with PBS Kids for Summer Reading Challenge (Win PBK gift card)
    ShareReading is a huge part of our summer. While many consider it a chore, we use it as a relaxation because I empty the schedules during summer. Except for a few peppered  events I want kids to smell the un-rushed air and to read with abandon. Best part is I read more in summer with them. This is exactly why we sign up for all reading challenges and I wanted to share...
