    5 Parenting Quotes To Inspire

    Parenting is tough. There’s no better way to put it. Thankfully, there are a number of resources for soon-to-be and new parents to latch on to. For years, I’ve watched TV shows and conversed with other parents to get a glimpse of what parenting would be like in real life. The truth is, nothing prepared me better for the new role of a mom than connecting with other parents. Getting their side of the story was a blessing. Although some people won’t show you the truth about their day to day (hence what you see portrayed on social media), there

    New Book Highlights ‘Green Smoothie’ Use Of Media For Preschoolers

    Share Kindness This February Via #ShowYourLoveWithPampers

    This post is sponsored by Tai Pei in collaboration with Influencer Central. Although I received compensation to share this information, all thoughts are my own.  Planning dinners in advance have been helpful for us this year. It’s been one of my goals for 2018 to be more organized with everyday tasks, even our meals.
