It’s Almost Time for Back to School: Are You Road Ready?

Guest Post from Free Lance Writer : Amy Patterson

With the school year just around the corner, you’re probably putting away your summer bucket list and starting a “back to school” to do list. Not only do your kids need new clothes and school supplies, but you might need to coordinate your schedule for carpool or get everyone signed up for extracurricular activities.

As you’re switching gears and getting back into the school year mode, it’s also a good time to think about roadway safety. Whether you have newly licensed teen drivers, who will be driving themselves or younger siblings to school, or if you’re in charge of getting your kids to and from activities, it’s the perfect time of year to brush up on some safety.

Bunch O Balloons Summer 2018

We are really loving summer with all the FUN we are having thanks to Bunch O Balloons by Zuru Toys.

Who doesn’t love Bunch O Balloons?

I can not imagine filling water balloons the way we used to when we were kids. Standing in front of the kitchen sink and filling them one by one. It took so much time to fill them all up and I remember getting water EVERYWHERE as you pulled the end of the water balloon off the faucet. Bunch O Balloons is Absolutely Genius and saves so much time! As a parent I am so happy that this is the way we can fill water balloons for our kids in the summer time. Summer Parties have gotten so much easier because of this amazing toy/ product.

Cooking With Your Kids

Written by: Christine Egan

I was recently asked by a TV news producer “Do I have any tips for getting dinner on the table?” Two things ran through my head as I attempted to answer this question.

christine egan cooking1. Do I share that getting food on the table every night is a real struggle for me too?

I was being asked this question, because this TV producer knows that I am someone in the Health and Wellness field who believes in the healthy aspects of home cooked meals. My mind quickly reviewed dinner this past week. Hmmm, I was away with my daughter for two of the nights, throw a karate tournament, dance class and a husband who had an evening business event all into the mix and the answer would be…ummm I’m not sure what my family ate this week. Maybe this was not the week to reminisce about. I know I have a tip…think Christine! We all know the struggle is real to get healthy dinners on the table when we are running around from activity to activity. I told her some nights are better than others. When I stopped to think about why some nights were a success and some weren’t…the tip was easy.

The best horror stories spring from situations that could actually happen, and they are built on psychology and emotion.
