Fun and Delicious – flipflop Wines and the #FlippinGoodDeeds Challenge

I've had a bad day.  Not really bad - it's not like my pet died, or I was diagnosed with cancer - just annoying bad. I went to a meeting this morning at 9:00.  Got up early.  Dressed up.  Drove 50 miles.  You know what I mean.  I got there and I was the only one.  The only one.  Called the host and said, "Where is the meeting? Do I have the wrong place?"  "No," she said, "the meeting was cancelled.  We always cancel if there is a … [Read more...]

What Do You Love Most About Recess? Danimals #RallyforRecess

What do I love most about recess? For me, it's the fresh air and physical activity! My favorite activites were playing games like "Simon Says", "London Bridges", "Jump Rope" and "Handclapping Games" with my BFFS. Remember this one? "A sailor went to see sea, sea, sea to see what he could see, see, see. But all that he could see, see, see, was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea." I asked my five year old daughter and here's what she … [Read more...]

B2S Review and Giveaway: School Bags for Kids

When Luis returned home and told his friend, Kalon … [Read more...]

B2S Review and Giveaway: Time Timer! What a Smart Idea!

Last week, I wrote about Rosie's Separation Anxiety issues.  When I spoke to her teacher, we discussed how difficult it is for children to learn the concept of time.  As adults, we have refined our "internal clock" to know about when 15 minutes has gone by, or an hour.  But children don't have that sense yet. When I drop off Rosie at school and tell her I will pick her up at 3:30, or in 7 hours, that just doesn't mean anything to her.  It … [Read more...]
