Gifts for Preschoolers: LeapFrop Explorer Games (Giveaway ends 1/28/13)

One minute we were an entirely “video game free” home and the next minute we seemed to have a game systems in every room of our home. How did it happen? And I’m not talking about small electronic “busy” activity toys. We had a ton of those activity toys that the kids loved. I’m...

Swapping Kids’ Toys, Clothes, Media Made Easy with Swap.com Valet Service and Code for Free Shipping

One day, the piles around my house were of no consequence to me. I happily stacked one toy on top of the other. I stowed clothes in storage bins. I squeezed between bins of toys to get from one room to another. Stored loads of board games in the toy cupboard. Piled DVDs haphazardly...

Teaching Your Child About Spending with #virtualpiggy

I held the Disney art kit in my hands as my daughter rummaged in her purse. I was shopping at The Disney Store with my then 7-year-old daughter. She was so excited to spend her own money. For the first time in her life, she had saved money. She had saved for weeks…a nickel...

I want to sell my toys! I heard my daughter say these words. I was caught off guard. What did she say? I was completely and utterly dumbstruck. My kid wants to sell her toys?! My kid who demanded that Santa bring her another Barbie Dreamhouse, after Mommy (me) had to admit that she...

Happy New Year 2013, Tax Writeoffs, and an Announcement of Winners

The last couple of years our NYE plans have been low key. Staying at home. Eating snacks. Playing games. Watching TV. Celebrating the ball drop. Sipping sparkling cider. Shooting off party poppers. Nothing elaborate, but just what we like…good, low key, seizing family time fun. My children are not old enough to have plans...

Family Online Safety: Keeping Your Kids Safe With their New Mobile Devices #SafelyGo #digitalwellness

These days I’m not surprised by the items on my kids’ Christmas lists. A couple of years ago though, I was caught off guard when my oldest asked for an iPod Touch. She was young…only 9 or 10. Why did she need an iPod Touch? What was an iPod Touch? Would she use it?...

Holiday Gift Guide: Trust Your Life with @Lifelock #giftguide

As a child, I had perhaps one Christmas where I didn’t get the present I wanted. I was upset, but moved on. I didn’t dwell too heavily as a kid. I quickly forgot about the gift I wanted and happily played with the gifts I received. As an adult, I really don’t need anything....

Holiday Gift Guide: Bake Up Sweet Treats with Baking Products from @Safeway [#Giveaway ends 12/24]

My kids LOVE to bake. They bake for birthdays, holidays, and just because. The older one bakes for friends at school. I don’t know how she carries a tray of cupcakes and her backpack and lunchbox, but she manages somehow. She likes sharing what she bakes with her friends. Two weekends ago, my son...
