It feels like recently, my friends have made comments to me like, "You Are a Supermom!" or say "I don't know how you do it." I am here to say, it doesn't feel like a compliment. It means that...
I know that I do not have a popular opinion here, but I don’t like Fall.  I don’t get excited about pumpkins (unless it’s a pie), leaves, scarecrows, itchy wool scarves, bulky sweaters, boots that take too much time...
There are so many good reasons to carpool, especially in neighborhoods with a lot of children headed to school each day. Parents save time, gas money, and avoid the aggravation of idling behind an endless sea of taillights on...
Now that my kids are no longer little, I’ve come to realize this fact about the intersectionality of parenting and shopping: You really miss out on a ton of innovation and information about products that are specifically designed for...

Summer is here and I always feel so desperate for new activities to keep the kids entertained both inside and out. When I worked with kids growing up we always had balloons tucked away and could always find last...
Another summer is upon us which means that reading programs have begun. School is done and since the kids are usually not interested in books or visiting the library, these programs are an amazing way to incentivize the whole...
Summer sliding may just make you think of waterparks and backyard slip-n-slides, but the “summer slide” I’m referring to is about your child’s success in the classroom.  In a recent study, it was proven that children lose about 25%...
We were so excited to see all the attendees at our 2021 virtual Bloom Event earlier last month.  We owe a huge thank you to all off our sponsors and speakers who participated in the event and made it a...
It's so hard to find things to keep the family (or adults) entertained during the heat of the summer, so when I was given the opportunity to take my family on a pirate themed puzzle ride I said "Arrrrrrrrright"....
I am not a plant expert.  I have zero plant training other than talking to other people who range from seeming to know a couple of things to hired help at Lowe’s to the wildly helpful and knowledgeable dude...
In 1967, decades before I was born, I received the most incredible wedding gift from two total strangers. They didn’t know that they were giving one of the greatest gifts I would receive, and little did I know that a...
