I love the movie Nanny McPhee.  She becomes a nanny to a family with very naughty children and teaches them to "behave".  My girls love it when I say "behave" in my silly British Nanny McPhee accent. I decided to write this post because this summer I have been noticing some bad manners in my house and I wanted to fix them ASAP. Just tonight...

A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...

The greatest game of baseball ever played happened while we were vacationing on the warm sandy beaches of California. We played in the waves and sand all day! As the hours passed we forgot to pull out our fat bat and wiffle balls! We had also picked up a few baseball gloves from HomerunMonkey.com. It wasn't until the sun set, and we went to...

Living in a very small rental home, I wasn't thrilled about the space I would be working with for my new baby boy's nursery.  All of my Pinterest nurseries were definitely bigger,... with glass french doors, massive windows, and approximately 2-3 hanging chandeliers.  Oh, you pinned that nursery too?! ;)  Well, my 10'x10' box was what I was...

Would you like to tell your kids something once and have them listen? Tired of the yelling?  Tired of the whining?  Tired of being tired?  You’re not alone.  From toddler temper-tantrums to teenage talking back, parents wonder what it takes to get kids to cooperate.  If you’re tired of nagging, reminding and yelling to get kids to...

My good friend, Jessica, is the queen of the outdoors. She is a high adventure enthusiast, blogger, mom of 3, crafter, still finds time to garden, and is a great cook! AND, her kids are always active! So I had to ask her. How did she accomplish all those things, and yet still maintain her sanity?! Especially since we all know simply taking care...

Finding inexpensive indoor family activities can sometimes be difficult, and often leads to the same old "movie and popcorn night". While we enjoy a movie and popcorn as much as the next family, I am always looking for something else. When I saw this brilliant idea from my sister, I knew I had to try it out. She bought a large piece of...
