Kids Can Do Amazing Things

I am constantly blown away by what children are capable of when given the time, encouragement, and support from those around them. In addition to my three amazing beauties that I brought into the world, here are a few of our other favorite amazing kids that we watch and support at our house.  DREAM BIG PODCAST with 8-year old Eva Sweet Eva Karpman is the same age as my oldest child. This 8-year old third grader has her very own podcast where she interviews guests and leads a 20-30 minute show. Through her words, she inspires kids and adults to...

Why I Let My Kids Destroy The Kitchen

The first time I willingly let my kids destroy every square inch of my kitchen, er, I mean, bake independently, was done through gritted teeth. I was aware of every drop of water that hit the floor, every bit of powdery flour that was smeared on the cabinet. I stared intently at the grout between the tile floors, wondering if I would still be cleaning granulated sugar out of the crevices 6 months from then. Instead of screaming”LOOK AT THE MESS YOU MADE!” I said (half-smile in place) “Oooh, that’s gonna be hard to get all that sugar off the...

The Questions I Ask My Kids Every Night… And Why

Between sports and activities, scouts and meetings, work requirements and family obligations, it seems that the moments we have in meaningful conversations are sometimes few and far between. Gone are the days where we come home from work and talk as a family while the newborn lays peacefully on my child. Gone are the days where we gather around the living room carpet and watch a toddler scoot and grunt. We have entered a new season of life and it is busy, and packed, and intense.  In the limited amount of time where we are together, I make it a...

Day 2: Presence Over Presents

Throughout my childhood, I remember wanting…. Wanting name brand jeans, wanting the newest CD, wanting the coolest gadget. And not receiving those items. Until a holiday or birthday. There was definitely no “getting something new for the sake of getting something new.” Nor would I have considered it an option. You see, gifts at my house were reserved for special occasions. It was another reminder of just how blessed we were to celebrate Christmas and have a special exclusive day in our honor. We may not have been royalty every day of the year, but on Christmas and Birthdays, you...

Review:: BCP 43-Piece Assembly Toy Robot & Car

Stereotypical gender specific toys have no place in this house. And my girls are about to prove why! My little ladies are loving using “real tools like daddies” to build their creations, and can’t get enough of their imaginative end results. This awesome 43-piece set from Best Choice Products is suggested for ages 3+, but I can tell you that all three of my littles (ages 2, 5, 7) had a blast with it. There are no directions to follow, so kids get to decide for themselves how to build and put the pieces together. In a world of structured play,...
