Shopping with Purpose this Holiday Season

I’m going to be honest with you. Most years, my primary concern when it came to Christmas shopping was efficiency.

Non-Toy Gift Ideas for Kids

When I started planning my youngest’s first birthday, there was one thing I knew I didn’t want to add to our home—more toys! I saw a poem suggesting a book instead of a card, but I specifically (really) did not want toys, so I tweaked it to politely request for books as a gift. And let’s face it—the […]

What Teachers ::Really:: Want for Christmas

Last week, my husband and I spent a couple of hours hanging out with my son’s class at school—twenty 4 and 5-year-olds and their two teachers. We sang songs, read stories, built towers, played in the sand table, and helped them make homemade applesauce. By snack time, we were exhausted. Hubs and I went home […]
