If my husband and I were in a sleeping contest, I would totally lose. He can sleep anywhere. I, on the other hand, can usually only fall asleep in my bed (no napping, just bed time). And even in my bed I sometimes find that I toss and turn all night. Once I started using an essential oil blend, made specifically for sleep, I found that I sleep more soundly. I know there are essential oil haterz out there and even if this just makes me think I’m sleeping better, I’m totally ok with that. And they smell good. So how can that be wrong?
Back to school was a really big deal for our family this year. Not only do I now have an upper grader, which brings all kinds of new school activities, but I also have a first grader. My baby isn’t a baby anymore which means he is now in a full day of school. No more half-day kinder. Big time, big kid stuff. Do you know what else that means?? I have 6 hours to myself everyday… Hooray for back to school!
Kids books are so stinking cute! I love a book that is clever and colorful and a little out of the ordinary. Books are the perfect tool to introduce big ideas to kids, in a super approachable way. And they also make great gifts. And we picked up a new one that we think you all should get too!
The craft kits from Crafting it Forward aren’t like the rest of the kits out there. Sure, they’re branding is perfection. Their crafts are expertly curated. Your kids will be kept busy for a nice chunk of time. But there is so much more than just easy kids crafts.
Did your house get cray cray over summer? Ours did. We were in and out with vacations and day trips and we really just let the house be a mess. But as we started all the back to school prep, I realized that something had to change! My mind was feeling just as chaotic as the house. Not only did I need to take a little time to organize but I needed to get the kids involved as well. The plus side is with the chores getting done faster (and by more of us) we have more time for play!
