Why It’s OK That My Daughter Missed Spring Camp This Year

Adventure/ Art Time/ Big Kid/ Family

This post was sponsored by Amazon but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

For some, Spring Break means more sleep, family vacation or kids camp. For me, it means figuring out how to entertain my 1-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter while building my business, working on deadlines and attempting to not let the mom guilt consume me because the work seems never-ending (but I also do all of the jobs for this website and Navigating Postpartum, so there’s that). I was all set to sign Savannah up for a 4-day camp to get a little bit more time during her 2-week break from school when she protested, saying how much she hates camp. Ugh. I don’t know if it was the mom guilt or how much I love to save money . . . but I let her stay home. The good news? I learned some more reasons I’m thankful for the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids tablet loaded with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited and that it’s OK for her to miss camp! Here are some ways the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids tablet has helped us during the break so far, and why I’m OK with S not being at camp. Read more

Sophie la Girafe Baby Items You’ll Be Obsessed With

Baby/ Breastfeeding/ Pregnancy

There are a lot of baby products on the market but nearly every new parent knows all about the Sophie la Girafe teething toy. It’s typically talked about either because new parents can’t believe how much it costs, or because it’s the only thing that makes someone’s baby happy. Whatever the reason, it’s such a hit in both Europe and the US that there’s actually more than just the famed teether in the collection! Here are a few of my favorite useful and super cute Sophie la Girafe items (of many) that just might make you obsessed with Sophie la Girafe. Read more
