Meals are hard, it seems like snacks should be easy, but they aren’t. With so many choices, snacks can be just as overwhelming as meals. Plus so many snacks lack the wholesome ingredients that I want my kids to eat. It may be “just a snack,” but I want it to benefit their bodies too. But there are some easy things you can do to help kids snack better.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tom’s of Maine . All opinions are 100% mine. My journey to using natural products started like most parents, when I got pregnant with my first child. All of the sudden the ingredients and chemicals (or lack there of) mattered to me — a […]

Last week my family and I attended our very first Orlando City Soccer game — what a fun night! Our attendance was sponsored by Neutrogena who has partnered with MLS to raise awareness of the importance of skin protection on and off the field as part of the Choose Skin Health campaign. Whether you are playing soccer […]
I am raising a serious fashionista. Not only does my eight year old love clothes, but when it comes to fashion she has an opinion about everything. Fit, comfort and style are all very important to her and she is always excited to try on new threads. As much as she loves fashion she was thrilled that I partnered with Kidbox, […]
My kids don’t eat a lot of sandwiches because their lunch of choice is a meat and cheese roll up. I am not sure why they are anti bread (unless it is a dinner roll), but that’s what they like. Because turkey/cheese and ham/cheese rollups are a staple in our house I was intrigued when I learned […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sister Schubert’s®. All opinions are 100% mine. Nothing brings people together faster than good old-fashion conversation. But sometimes getting a conversation started with kids can be tricky. “What did you do today?” “Nothing.” To combat one word answers, I created a family conversation […]
One of the greatest things I have done for my family is to start this blog, and then turn it into a business. Blogging professionally isn’t easy by any means, but I love it. And learning to use my voice on various social media channels has been the key to earning a living blogging. Thanks to IZEA, working on the go just got easier with the IZEA App.
I have not been to a Chuck E Cheese’s birthday party since I was a kid — until last week. So. Much. Fun! The pure joy on my daughters’ faces made me giddy from the time we walked in. Everyone had such a great time — yes, even the adults.
When it comes to shoes, there is a fine line between choosing shoes for aesthetics and comfort. Let’s face it; a lot of cutest shoes are not the most comfortable. I know, I have them in my closet too. But what if you could have super cute boots that received glowing compliments and were really, […]
If you have ever wanted to play a video game for “just five more minutes” so you could beat the next level, then its time to get off the couch and use your desire to level up to help you get fit. Goji Play takes gaming to a new level by using the motion of working out […]

This post brought to you by Chobani. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Suburban Mom. Thanks to my husband, my youngest loves Greek yogurt. Loves it. And it is all because her daddy eats Greek yogurt and a banana for breakfast everyday. From the time she could eat yogurt he has shared […]
In an ideal world, my kids would eat fruits and veggies at every meal. In fact, they would choose fruits and veggies for every snack. The whole family would eat the correct MyPlate portions all day long. In a perfect world… But while I do my best, I live in the real world. The go-go-go world where kids want […]
Before I became pregnant with my oldest, I had never eaten an organic food. Well, maybe once or twice by chance, but it certainly wasn’t something I sought out. I never looked at ingredients, and I never thought about how something was made. If it tasted good, I ate it. Then I got pregnant, and […]
