What Stains Drive You Crazy?

What Stains Drive You Crazy?

My little boys are high energy; they zoom from one activity to the next without stopping for a breath. My older son loves soccer, which is a wonderful way to keep active, but terrible for keeping his clothes clean. Everything winds up with a grass or mud stain.

Green Your Nursery

With their love of the outdoors, children are natural environmentalists. My preschooler loved the new Lorax movie. Afterwards, he wanted to plant some trees. Teaching your kids to be earth friendly is easier than you think. Reading books about nature, recycling, planting trees and gardening are all fun ways to teach your kids. Being earth friendly as a mom is a bit harder. Some of my friends use cloth diapers. I admire them for being so eco-friendly, … Read entire article »

Living Like the Lorax

Living Like the Lorax

Since I’m a busy working mom, I love it when companies offer affordable, practical ways to help the environment.

My son loves Elmo, and I can appreciate Elmo’s positive influence on him as well.
