Taking a toddler to the beach can be a lot of fun but you can also stress yourself out a bit before even hitting the road. I think it’s totally necessary to take a checklist of must haves when heading to the beach with kids. Traveling with a toddler can be overwhelming. Between packing for a stay plus packing for activities, you end up thinking you’ll need everything in your
My son’s name, Orion, is difficult to find in stores unless I’m in a NASA shop or Space section of a bookstore. Enter Personalized children’s books from I See Me! When I See Me! reached out to me, I was thrilled! I love receiving personalized books for my son. We read every single night so we added a personalized night time story to our collection. A love of reading is so important
Summer is almost here and I’m starting to plan out a bunch of activities for the family to do this summer. To keep things fun for my son (well, me) I decided to do a summer bucket list of 20 things my toddler can enjoy.

Father’s Day is around the corner so I’m already trying to one-up my husband and figure out what to do for him. Trying to figure out what my husband really wants for Father’s Day is usually pretty easy for me. I’ve never asked him what he wanted but I know I can’t go wrong with some gear from his favorite baseball team or a history book he’d love to read.

It took me awhile to even come to terms with my birth story. I didn’t have a written plan, but a C-Section was never part of my thoughts.
