Resourceful Mommy Crest Heart 1

$2 off Crest Products at Walmart

I have never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day and even notoriously went through a wear-black-on-V-Day phase in college. So glad those were the days before social media!

  As a mom of a pre-teen boy, I frequently experience the following conversation in my home: “Honey, did you brush your teeth?” “Yes, mom.” “Are you sure?” “Yeah.” “Can I see your teeth?” *long pause* “I’ll go brush them now…”       I get it! While I love that fresh from the dentist…

Give the Gift of Creativity with litt...

As my children have grown older, choosing gifts that they love for Christmas has become more and more challenging. There seem to be fewer options that hold the boys’ interest that don’t involve screens and wifi, and even less that offer educational opportunities. I love to encourage creativity in my kids and challenge their minds,…

UnPlugNPlay

CONFESSION: I very much love technology. Long before the Internet, in a time when iPads weren’t even imaginable, I was a child who loved screen time. I set an alarm to get up and watch Saturday morning television. I sat in front of my record player, then my dual tape deck with high speed dubbing…

Choose Your Own Adventure is Back!

If you were a child in the 80’s, there are a few incontrovertible facts about your childhood: You had a Care Bear and/or a Cabbage Patch Kid. You chewed either Hubba Bubba or Bubblicious, and you likely had a strong preference one way or the other. You read Choose Your Own Adventure books. Thankfully, my…
