Spin on Advent Calendars with 25 Days of Giving

Tis the season to be giving back! If you know me, you’ll know that I love the Holidays season. It isn’t because of the presents, parties, or the amazing shopping sales, but it’s a holiday that brings people together, reminding us how blessed we really are. I was never really warm on the idea of…

Fun Worksheets for Rainy Days

Lately my little ones have been obsessed with doing “hard work”. This is what they call it at school when they need to complete their workbooks. Mackenzie has been loving them so much, she has been asking to do them at home too! With everything online, it was hard to pinpoint where to start. I’m…

Honestly I saw many of these like-minded…

Valentine Printables for Preschoolers

Since M started school, I’ve been getting my gears ready for Valentine day gift ideas. There are SO many great ideas out there but it was hard to find ideas that appeased the 2.5-6 age group, with a mix of boys and girls, as well as a no sugar policy. Getting M to help assemble…

Mom’s Top Picks for Inclusion Books for Children

Even before I became a mother, I was always concerned of how society is shaped to treat those who don’t appear “normal” differently. Inclusion is very important in my household.
