“Mom, my throat is dry and scratchy.” Sigh. That’s how it starts in our house, with a quiet whisper of a “dry” throat. That’s my clue that a cold is about to make its way through the family. But the question is, will it be a small cold or something bigger? I am never sure. Thanks to […]
I have a confession to make. I can’t stand emptying the dishwasher. When my husband goes out of town, we use the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and let the dirties pile up in the sink until it is overflowing. My poor husband is left to empty the dishwasher 9 times out of 10. (In […]
This post brought to you by Weight Watchers® Ice Cream. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Suburban Mom. I have a major sweet tooth – major. Every night after the kids go to bed, I crave something sweet. It is a battle because I am also trying to get myself in […]
I am so excited about the newest piece of furniture in my house. It is exactly what I have wanted for ages, and now it is mine. It looks perfect, it will be fun to decorate each season and best of all this Providence Buffet Table/Media Console from Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart has storage! For […]
From short trips to the beach, weekend trips to Disney and a seven-hour road trip to North Carolina, my family has plans to be on the road a lot this summer. Destination fun! But on the way to fun, I’ve gotta keep the kiddos fed. Because inevitably someone is always hungry. Always. This summer families on the […]
It’s pool season, and my girls have already begun the daily request to go swimming. While my oldest has turned into a fish, diving and swimming, my little needs a bit more confidence. She is taking swim lessons, but for now she prefers to stay on the steps. To help her gain confidence in the water, I got her a Stearns Puddle Jumper.
Fairies, adventure, love and rock and roll! That is the new animated film by George Lucas Strange Magic, and my girls loved it. Now available on DVD, Strange Magic is a magical story about fairies who just happen to know some very popular rock and roll tunes. So popular that my daughters were amazed when mom and […]
A good sandwich always makes me think of my grandfather. He loved a thick sandwich with meat, cheese and veggies piled high. He used to call it an Army man’s sandwich. Of course, a sandwich isn’t complete without my favorite condiment — mayonnaise. And making a sandwich with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise just got easier with […]
“The Motherhood would like to send you a box filled with some of our favorite things. How does that sound?” Ummm, yes please! When that question arrived in my inbox I didn’t hesitate. Of course, who wouldn’t want to receive a box filled with surprise gifts? Arriving just in time for Mother’s Day, when my box […]
Have you experienced that stale car smell? Or even worse, the dreaded car funk? Don’t be embarrassed, everyone has. The important thing is to do something about it. The easy solution is an air freshener, but not all air fresheners are equal. In the past they were big, bulky and a bit of an eyesore. But thanks to the new PERK Visor Wrap, you can have fresh air without a giant air freshener.
As a germaphobe, asthmatic with serious allergies breathing clean air is really important to me. I have always run several air purifiers throughout my home. It is important to me to remove pollutants from the air my family breathes for our health. The newest addition to my arsenal of air purifiers is the Holmes® Smart Air Purifier with WeMo.
Paper or plastic? No, I am not talking about shopping bags (the answer to that should be a reusable tote!), I am talking about your preferred method of payment. Are you a paper or plastic shopper? I used to be paper (and metal), but in recent years I have become an almost 100% plastic shopper. […]
When it comes to car seats, I don’t mess around. My girls have been (and will continue to be in) their respective car seats long past basic standards. My seven-year-old first grader is still in a five-point harness, and until she outgrows it — that is where she will stay. To me car seats are […]
Art and technology come together in a new way with Crayola Color Alive. For my budding artist who loves all apps, Crayola Color Alive is a fun new way to interact with her artwork on a whole new level — 4D! Mom loves the integration between coloring in the real world and screen time, and K loves to bring her designs to life.
