Hometown Buffet – A Giveaway

One of my children’s favorite memories is a night we spent at a hotel in St Louis several years ago. It wasn’t the newly built accomodations, the Gateway Arch, or the tour of Grant’s Farm that they loved. It was the buffet at the hotel. There’s something about a buffet that draws kids in and […]

Bedtime Stories from Candlewick Press – A Giveaway

With the change of season comes shorter days and earlier bedtimes. It seems that we’re all ready to hit the hay hours earlier than normal. And so a few good bedtime stories are in order. Recently, Candlewick Press sent me a group of new releases, especially for bedtime.  These books are all beautifully illustrated and […]

While shopping with me, FishBoy8 asked if we were going […]

A Very Green Giveaway from Crayola

One of my highlights of going back to school — as a child and as an adult — has been having a stash of fresh, clean supplies. When I handed my kids new crayons and colored pencils this last week, I saw that they, too, have an affinity for unbroken crayons still in their wrappers. […]

Lunchtime Solutions, Sara Lee Soft and Smooth, & A Giveaway

One of the things that I realized in our first two weeks since school started was that lunch time is a major hassle. My default lunchtime mode is to reheat leftovers or create a new meal at noontime each day. This takes way too much time. (And there are rarely enough leftovers, anyway.) I think […]
