Play Stow and Go Playskool Toys Review – Toddler and Baby Toys

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Playskool. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Traveling with two kids two and under takes a lot of work and planning. There are diapers, outfits, change of outfits, pajamas, special soap, sleeping arrangements, snacks, and toys. But we were able to save a ton of space in our car in a recent trip to Maine, thanks…

Fall Activities in Rhode Island That You Can Do With a Toddler

I’ve heard it said time and time again, that Fall is the best season to be in Rhode Island. Most would think that Summer would reign supreme in the Ocean State, but if you want to really spend some time in the outdoors, and you don’t like the sweltering heat, then autumn is truly the time to be in Little Rhody. I’ve compiled some of my favorite activities to do in Rhode Island – especially if you have kids, babies,…

Happy 150th Birthday, Carter’s !

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s.  I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. They say it’s your birthday — okay so it may not be YOUR birthday, and it surely isn’t MY birthday (mine’s cinco de mayo!) but it is CARTER’S birthday. And I’m not talking about a person named Carter, I’m talking about one of my most favorite brands of baby and kid’s clothing – Carter’s.  It’s actually…

Celebrating Baby Days

If you have children or babies, you know that getting a moment by yourself without any interruption is a rare and beautiful thing! Thankfully, Acorn recently sent me a gift card so I could accomplish some necessary shopping during Sam’s Club Baby Days!  While there, I was able to bask in the air conditioning, and shop to my heart’s content while Tall Dad watched the kiddos. This Labor Day weekend was perfect. We were able to see friends who lived…

Kids Clothing is the Cutest

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s.  I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation. As a teacher, I always loved the back to school season, especially because of the deals! Notebooks, pens, pencils and even storage containers are lower than they will ever be for the rest of the school year. I was never able to fully appreciate the sales on children’s clothing…that is..until two years ago when…

Won’t You Be My Neighbor

Right now, at this very moment, I am lonely.  My husband is out with some guy friends, and my two kids are asleep. One in the room next-door, and the other in my arms as a rock in my rocking chair. The crickets outside my window are chirping away a beautiful symphony, accompanied by the white noise machine in my sons bedroom. My cats are tumbling around downstairs, their bellies full of delicious meal of canned fancy feast. I am…

It Only Gets Better As They Get Older

While shopping for Adirondack chairs the other day, I was randomly stopped by an older woman. She looked like she was my mom’s age, somewhere in her mid sixties, with brightly shining silver hair, and wise eyes. She smiled a huge smile at me that made her eyes crinkle into tiny lines. She pointed at me, referring to the fact that I was wearing a newborn baby, and said “it only gets better as they get older. Just wait!” “I…
