Frozen Yogurt Dots

I have been raising kids and helping to raise kids  for a very long time, not just my kids but other people’s kids as well. Often times while I am strolling in the baby aisle at the grocery store I am mesmerized by the different kinds of baby snacks that are available for kids. I love finding products that are for new little eaters, but sadly these products are really … Read More →

Benji Cowart’s Parody on The Song Rude is Creating a BUZZ!

benji

This has been circling the web lately with two very different viewpoints. On the one hand people think it is utterly horrible for a father from today’s day and age to say such harsh words and to be over protective like the father Benji Cowart in this video. While on the other hand people are applauding this man for speaking the truth about what many fathers are actually thinking when … Read More →

Kidoodle TV Product Review PTPA Award Winner!

First I would like to take a moment to congratulate Kidoodle TV on becoming a Parent Tested and Parent Approved Winner! I can totally see why they won.

Now he is six months old, and I have been home every day for the last year. I went from keeping an impossible schedule and being on the go to being stagnant and waiting to give … Read More →

Face the Facts, your child is most likely spoiled!

kk dock

  Now before you jump the gun, maybe our definition of spoiled is two completely different things. In fact there are different ways of looking at being spoiled, a couple being; a spoiled brat which needs no further explanation and spoiled financially. At this point you may still be saying, “That’s not me or this post isn’t about me” in which I implore you to go into the child’s room … Read More →

Getting Fit Together, But Apart

ShiftMama on the water

Personally speaking I know that The Husband and I are better parents when we are fit.  We’re happier, we’re able to do all the fun stuff that The Kid wants to do, and that we want to do.  It’s hard to do a picnic bike ride when you’re out of breath after five minutes, it’s hard to hike when your knees are already damaged and you’re hailing an extra 20 … Read More →
