It Feels Good to Do Good

Momee Friends is committed to creating a culture of service, and one in which we can teach children the importance of giving back.

How much sugar is in your kid’s lunch box?

It’s that time of year again, back to school lunches. Yay, I can’t wait! OK, maybe that’s a tiny exaggeration. But you should actually get a little excited.

If there are children in the home, removing favorite stuffed animals and their toys might be a very good idea as puppy may not be able to distinguish between his play items and theirs.

A New Puppy named Tyrannosaurus Rex

  A local Momee and friend of mine, Stevi gave me the inside scoop on life with a new puppy and two young kids at home. The puppy is gorgeous and playful and we all love puppies but she has the insight on Puppy Reality in a young family home.

Back in February I first asked Stevi, I love tyrannasaurus rex… how is it with the kids and a puppy? We are debating it. I know they will be happy and love one but for you the stay at home mom how is it?”
