Mid-Summer Reflection

Summer is in full swing – and, as always, threatening to come and go MUCH faster than we would prefer. The Mojitos & Munchkins crew has had a busy – but exciting – few months of summer so far. Check out seven of our highlights! The Start of Summer Gone are the days of early morning rising, running to catch the school bus, and math homework at nights. Also gone are the days of schedules and time management, activities and running amuck. This summer, our goal has been to RELAX and BREATHE. We have tried *VERY* hard to stick to a...

Review:: The Bug Bite Thing

This tiny, easy-to-pack, simple-to-use, summer accessory is arguably our new FAVORITE thing! When you live in Minnesota (a.k.a The land of 10,000 mosquitos), you begin associating summer months with big red scratchy welts on your body. We’ve accepted it as the way it is, but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. Up until this summer, I was slathering questionable ingredients all over my children’s’ bodies to try and ease the pain and discomfort that comes with bug bites. After being introduced to The Bug Thing, those days are gone. Now, only a quick 30 seconds stand between the...

Mojitos & Munchkins Gives Back

Dear World, Thanks to a recent post by Eventbrite, I’m left reflecting on how I choose to give back and better this universe I live in. Charitable donations have always been held close to my heart, and as a family, we have chosen companies and organizations that we dedicate a portion of our finances to each year. When it comes to making donations, it easily feels like there are thousands of people, families, groups, organizations, and companies that are in need of our contributions. Every day as I scroll through my Facebook feed, there is tragedy, trauma and unmistakable pain. My...
