Family Fun with Free KidQ app


This post is part of a sponsored campaign by Scholastic. My daughter asks me questions all day long. Sometimes it's about the weather, or animals, or street signs. Sometimes it's about why flowers smell good or how many different types of birds live in Arizona. Sometimes it's about silly things she overheard my husband and I say. We have always told her asking questions is how we learn. She has never been shy with her curiosity and we don't discourage her hundreds of daily questions. Read More... {Read More...}

Surviving cold and cough season: Dr. Cocoa’s chocolate flavored medicine for kids


This post is part of a sponsored campaign by Dr. Cocoa and Scholastic. As cold and cough season are approaching, I'm already anticipating how my daughter will spend her sick days. When she's not feeling well she likes to cuddle up on the couch with her favorite lovey and watch favorite movies or educational programs about animals. She doesn't complain too much until it's time to take the medicine. From my experience most children's medicine doesn't taste very yummy. We have tried a Read More... {Read More...}

Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival (Phoenix review)

Mickey's Music Festival in Phoenix she couldn't wait to attend. Our family had so much fun at the concert together. As the show ended I asked her favorite part. She answered, "Everything was awesome!" We danced, sang, and laughed through the entire show. The show began with an exciting Read More... {Read More...}

How to protect yourself during a consumer data breach


Several years ago I learned I was a victim of identity theft. Navigating my way through reporting the crime and learning to protect myself was challenging. It wasn't long into the process I started using LifeLock for personal identity protection. Although I thought I was completely educated about identity theft and knew ways to protect myself, we simply can't control the behaviors of others. By using LifeLock I am confident I am protected and will be notified anytime my personal Read More... {Read More...}

Solar Energy: how installing solar panels will help the environment and your wallet


This post is part of a sponsored campaign by Sungevity. My daughter is constantly sharing ideas for our family to help conserve energy and water. Just last night she suggested I take 12 second showers to conserve water and save the oceans. She has always been very aware of the environment and has no problem telling others how to help take care of the planet. Her confidence and innocent persistence has forced children to throw away snack wrappers on the playground, led cafeteria discussions Read More... {Read More...}
