Back to School Clothes for Little Girls

Here I am, 30-something years old, and still looking forward to Back to School clothes & supplies shopping! I was so excited to plan a day out with my big first grader as we get her ready to go back to school!

Remote Learning School Supplies Storage Kit

There's no new backpacks or school clothes. Instead we're searching for sold-out desks and comfy child-sized loungewear. We're brushing up on our own study skills as we get ready to take part in our kids' schooling ...

5 Favorite School Lunch Ideas for Kids

5 Favorite School Lunch Ideas for Kids

Making meals for kids is sometimes, well, the worst. Throw in a picky-eater, and in our case food allergies, and it feels like the options are frustratingly limited. I know how it goes- we start the year being that mom, but soon after fall into a hole of serving the same easy, go-to foods, day after day. To escape that pattern, I challenged myself to create 5 school ...
