Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 1.58.29 PM

Last year, when it came to my kids and skiing, the student surpassed the teacher on the slopes. It definitely scared me a little when my boys finally both hit a point where they zoomed past me and now ski a lot better than I will ever be able to. It was the year we really invested time into getting them both lessons and learning to ski the right … [Read more...]

So we headed to the Wells Fargo Center in Philly last night to see Monster Jam. (There's a sentence my 20-year-old self would not think she would ever say!) With two boys, watching big trucks do loud and crazy things is right up our family's alley.  I bet all you Moms of girls-only are super jealous that I got to do this, right? So I wanted to … [Read more...]

Right around the time that soccer season started this fall, a friend posted about the Sport Brella ($19.99, Amazon). I think it was my friend Amy from TeachMama.com but I can't be sure - was that you Amy?  If so, thank you!  I am totally in love with this little product that I ended up ordering after seeing it on Facebook and can't believe that … [Read more...]

Only two and a half weeks 'til school lets out for my kids for the SUMMER!  I can't believe it.  And as every Mom can relate, I have that whole mixed bag of feelings going on - relief that I'll no longer have to pack lunches, help with homework and stick to the school schedule but also panic about what to do with them for the entire summer! One … [Read more...]

I'm a self-proclaimed amusement park wuss.  The only ride I go on the majority of time at any given amusement park is the nearby bench.  I know - I'm so lame! As my kids get older, the scarier the better in their opinion.  In fact, after a couple of trips to Disney World last year, I wrote this post on the Top 10 Scariest Rides in Disney World … [Read more...]
