How To Teach Your Teenager to Drive

My daughter just recently got her drivers license which included getting a new car as well. I have to admit that teaching her to drive wasn't always easy. While I would have loved for her to be my little girl forever and drive her everywhere she wanted to go, it would not be possible. Eventually your little girl or boy has to grow up. So the time has come for you to teach your teenager how to drive. Your palms are sweating and your heart is racing, but that moment is here. Your teenager is more than ready to drive, so now is the time to start the training session. Here are 10 tips we have for teaching your teenager to drive.

Spring into Fashion with FabKids


Am I the only one happy that Spring is finally here? Spring has got to be my favorite season of all time. Mommy might disagree with me since it's the season when her allergies are at its worst. For me though, it means that the flowers starts blooming, the birds are once again outside my window singing their beautiful songs, and the weather although not perfect, is a lot better than it used to be. Not too hot and not too cold. That means its time to put away the heavy winter clothing and bring out the bright colors and the lighter materials. If you're thinking that your little one is in need for a new Spring wardrobe, guess what? Fab Kids has you covered. Fab Kids is a monthly clothing subscription for kids and one of the things I love about them is the variety and numerous choices that you have to choose from. It's really easy to sign up, just complete their style quiz and you'll have a personalized lists of outfits just for you. Outfits are shipped monthly and don't worry it is also very easy to cancel or skip a month.

Introducing Elephantito Children's Luxury Fashion‏


It's Fashion Friday and we've been neglecting our fashions. Not because we didn't want to but because we've been having spotty weather here in CO. One day it's almost 80 degrees and the next day it's snowing. It's said here in CO, if you don't like the weather, wait 30 minutes it'll change again. So far we haven't been disappointed. Well today we are excited to announce that we recently got the opportunity to work with, Elephantito, a luxury line of clothing and shoes for babies and children up to 8 years of age. I have always been a fan of their shoes but actually had no idea that they had a clothing line as well. I'm very happy that they contacted me because I have to admit that I'm in love with their clothing collection. They are absolutely adorable!

Kick Off Spring 2015 With Graco {Giveaway - US - Ends 4/10}


Spring is officially here and can you believe that after all the great weather we were having that it started snowing? I can't believe it either. Spring where are you? For most parents and kids alike, Spring has got to be the most anticipated season. The weather is a lot nicer compared to Winter where the parks and playgrounds are blanketed by snow. It is so cold outside that most people don't want to go outside but would prefer to stay indoors where it is nice and warm. When Spring arrives, the birds come out to sing, the butterflies starts appearing and so does the leaves and flowers. There is so much more to do and I love it. Guess what? So does Graco! Whether you’re traveling with baby or staying warm indoors, these Graco products help keep baby safe and comfortable, while making life easier for parents.

Today I want to share with you 3 products that definitely makes life so much easier for everyone.

Italian Pasta Salad

Spring is here? Can you believe it? I can't either because I have to admit that while Spring is officially here, the weather here isn't playing nice and cooperating. We recently had a snowfall and I was not too happy about that. I know with the New Year, a lot of us made a few resolutions or goals if you prefer. One of them for me was to start eating a little bit healthier. While I generally eat healthy, I don't eat as much as I would like and I have to admit that I don't do the 3 balanced meals for myself. I do however encourage my kids do. I have to learn to do it myself. Right now it's a case of "Do As I Say, Not What I Do". Today I want to share with you a simple but very satisfying Italian Pasta Salad. If you're trying eat something light for lunch or even dinner, then this is the perfect meal for you.

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes: Teaching Kids About the Human Body {Guest Post}

Today I once again have a guest poster. It seems that we have been getting a few of them lately and it does give me some extra time to myself. Running a blog isn't entirely easy. I've had a few people ask me how much time I spend on my blog on a daily basis, and I tell them this all the time, if I don't find the time to take a break I'll be on here all day. Between writing up and editing my posts and networking, it's a full time job. Well Alyssa Craig is here today to help out with something that I have always been fascinated with, the human body. As many of you know I was an Army Medic so it was my job to patch adults up. It's entirely different however when it comes to teaching kids about the human body. How do you introduce and teach kids about the human body? Take it away Alyssa!
