Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality for a Healthy Home

Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality for a Healthy Home

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Wood Air Conditioning.   We spend a lot of time indoors, whether at work or at home or visiting other places, so understanding the value of good indoor air quality is important. We might not be able to have any input on the indoor air quality at work (though we might expect businesses to maintain high standards), but we do have control over our homes and should take steps to ensure the air we breathe is safe for our health.   Image via Flickr by Artotem   Why is indoor air quality important?

Tips to Keep your Child Safe Online

Tips to Keep your Child Safe Online

Thanks to KidGuard for sponsoring this conversation and sharing helpful guides for us parents to learn how to protect our children online.   The internet can be a scary place. Scratch that, the cyber world is a scary, dangerous place where predators hide and take advantage of children. I hate to put it that way, but we parents know it is true.   Most of us grew up using the internet in various capacity, and I can remember my teenaged chats with “online friends” where we shared too much and did not think about the consequences. Our children, however, are […]

5 Ways to Save Money on Your Energy Bill

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by E.A.C. Heating and Air   Several years ago, we moved into our huge new house, which features 5,000 square feet of space that gives us room to grow. However, I quickly realized a house that large is difficult to keep clean and presents some surprises on the energy bill. Some research led me to ideas on how to save money on our energy bill by making simple changes to our routine and maintenance plan. Change Your Air Filters Regularly Our HVAC systems use filters to keep the air we breathe free of […]

Why You Need Amazon Prime Photos Now!

Why You Need Amazon Prime Photos Now!

Thanks to Amazon for sponsoring this post and providing prizes for the giveaway! Opinions are my own. We live in the media age, where we take photos of our babies by the thousands (or so it seems) right with our favorite pocket devices – our mobile phones. But we only have so much storage on these phones, and often we end up with the annoying “space is running out” alert and have to start deciding which photos or which apps must go to free up space on our phones. Gems like this one, a silly cute pic, one we had […]

How to Prepare the Perfect Holiday Party Cheese Tray

How to Prepare the Perfect Holiday Party Cheese Tray

One of the best things about the holidays is getting together with loved ones, especially if you don’t get to see family very often. Our family is spread out and tends to move around, so spending a holiday with a family member means travel is involved. Sometimes, that means it’s hard to bring a dish to share for a lovely family meal. But a cheese tray is always in fashion and not too difficult to prepare on the go, even if you have to stop by the store on your way. Tips for the Perfect Holiday Party Cheese Tray Cheese […]

How To Design Your Holiday Cards

How To Design Your Holiday Cards

Thanks to CardsDirect for sponsoring this post and providing some lovely holiday cards for our use. The holiday season is upon us, which means (among many, many things) that it is time to plan and design our holiday cards. In previous years, before we had the baby, I didn’t bother with personalized cards but just bought a stack from the store and sent them out to our family. But now that I have a little one of my own, I find it so much fun to find a great family photo (which, admittedly, is hard to get of all three […]

How to Care for Children’s Teeth

How to Care for Children’s Teeth

Thanks to TUNG Brush for sponsoring this conversation. My little one is working on some molars, as the perfect teeth marks on my shoulder are hinting at. Tiny humans grow a mouth full of teeth fast, but it will still be years before they learn all the necessary skills and can care for their teeth properly. This is where we as parents need to teach good practices early and help our little ones in their oral hygiene. Start Young, Start Early Toddlers are ever so curious over what we adults are doing and that includes brushing teeth. I have an extra […]

My Family’s Formula for Happiness

My Family’s Formula for Happiness

I remember being so deliriously happy. So overwhelmed and exhausted. And so amazed at the little addition to our lives. Life as a new mom is an emotional roller coaster.

How to Create your Formula for a Happy Family Patience and Grace It certainly takes a bit of trial and error to find out what works well, especially with a brand new baby. Everything changes.
