On my quest to learning how to make cool bento lunches I stumbled across a cool chick named Melanie Rosson on Instagram. She posts several pics of her bento art which is really amazing by the way and her work has just been inspiring to me as I'm learning about... Continue reading

Hi there Makeba! Yeah, I am so busy I would just immediately think "That's cute, but who has time for all that?" It really is just about taking baby steps and trying just one crafty thing each time and letting the rest of the lunch be just regular stuff. As long as it's colorful then that really does all the work for you. Before you know it, you will be doing more than you ever thought because I'ts just plain fun too and I get personal gratification. I'm also paying more attention to what I buy my kids to eat and I find myself wanting to buy more healthy and go to farmers markets more too. The presentation truly makes a difference for my kids. I'm seeing them eat certain fruits and veggies that they would never want to try before. It's really a win win! Thanks for giving it a shot! Thanks so much for leaving a comment too! Let me know how it turns out and if you get any new ideas!

Ok so let me make clear that I am not an expert on fancy shmancy food presentation. However, after my experience last year with my then 1st grader coming home with untouched lunch I needed a solution for this year. I browsed the internet and stumbled across something really cool....

...And boy have I been busy these past few months! I needed a break...heck, I still do really, but feel some guilt about just leaving my blog hanging. I've never done that before and I have so many stories and thoughts that I could have been sharing along the way.... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but if I don't make my own coffee I spend too much on it in a coffee shop. What's too much? Well when you get the yummy specialty stuff, that can easily cost about 4 bucks (and some change) a pop and even if I... Continue reading

That’s right; ANYWHERE. How? The iHealth Baby Monitor for Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Seems cool huh? I thought so too and was really excited to receive one of these babies to test out for myself. As many of my readers know, I’m a mom of 3 and extremely... Continue reading

As parents, it's not uncommon to be busy all the time doing everything to take care of the stuff we feel is so important and must get done in order to run our households. Laundry, bills, cooking, cleaning, groceries, bathing kids, wash/fix the car, walk the dog, etc. I get... Continue reading

This was done in pure fun, but I must admit that there just may be a little truth to it. Sometimes we can have a combo of these traits and sometimes we hope we are NOWHERE near them. What do you think? Can you add to my list? I would... Continue reading

We adults are pretty good at reminding kids to apologize when an apology is in order. Why do we do that? Is it because we think it's the right thing to do and it probably makes the other person feel better? When was the last time you apologized for something?... Continue reading

January 1st, 2012. Woke up at 7:47am and I'm already thinking about what's for dinner. Hope everyone was safe last night...no crazy middle of the night phone calls about who's in jail or in the hospital- nice...no news is good news as far as I'm concerned. My youngest one just... Continue reading

At this point it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know how I'll be bringing in the new year. It's kinda been with the same circle of little people for the last 3-6 years...and a few different big people who care to join us sometimes. So I thought I'd share... Continue reading

Skin whitening is definitely a personal decision. Let me just start off by saying that this is a really complex topic and if anything, I only hope to inspire some awareness and dialogue around it especially with regard to how we define beauty and model it for our kids. I'm... Continue reading

Well when you really put it into perspective, what a nice problem to have considering those who did not receive or are less fortunate right? This said, making room for new toys... Continue reading

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so even the very Busy Fam shouldn't skimp on this meal. Sometimes when we are in a hurry it can be really easy to get caught up in our morning and not properly fuel our bodies or even our kids bodies... Continue reading
