Life with four girls is getting crazier as each year passes.  We currently have three playing soccer, two taking swimming lessons, and my oldest is running her first 5k on Saturday.  Add in my wild child two year old and I barely get a moment to sit down.  All that running can leave my husband and I feeling rather parched.  And so when he needs a caffeine pick me up his first stop is always Circle K.

Oral Care for Kids Tips

Oral Care for Kids

There are 6 mouths in our family….. well 6 human mouths.  Five of those I am responsible for keeping sparkly clean and cavity free. I’m pretty sure the husband can fend for himself, hehe.  With four girls sometimes it’s a struggle to make it through the day let alone make sure everyone has brushed their teeth.  Did I even eat breakfast today?  Thankfully my two oldest daughters are now old enough to take care of their oral hygiene themselves, but it does take some reminding.  We’ve also discovered a few products that make the whole process a bit easier so … …..

Entenmann’s Little Bites – Perfect On The Go Snack

Little Bites at Soccer

One of the best things about being a parent, aunt/uncle, grandparent, or well anyone who gets to spend time with kids is that you get to relive a bit of your childhood at the same time.  While browsing toy aisles with my girls I have seen so many of the toys I used to play with either in their original form or a fun remake.  And the same goes for television shows and movies.  I about flipped when I saw that there was going to be a new Smurfs movie.  Have you seen Smurfs: The Lost Village?  It hit theaters … …..

Love Cereal? Love Cinnamon? Try NEW Post Cinnamon Pebbles!

Cinnamon Pebbles Treats

At all times we have a rather large selection of cereal in our pantry cupboard.  Every member of the Harper family loves cereal for breakfast, snacks, and sometimes even dinner.  A few of my daughters favorite cereal is Post Cocoa Pebbles, so when I saw the new Post Cinnamon Pebbles I knew we were going to have to give it a try. I was curious if this new cereal would stay true to our old favorites – Cocoa Pebbles & Fruity Pebbles.  As I opened the box that sweet cinnamon smell hit my nose and I couldn’t wait to give … …..

Imaginative “Me Time” with New MiO Playsets

HammockSet

Spring is finally showing up here in Indiana and the weather has been awesome for a couple days now.  My boys have had a blast playing outside after being cooped up all winter, so slowly and surely, the toys have all started to trickle outside as well. One of their favorite toys to play with not only inside, but now outside as well, has been the MiO Eating + 2 People  set I reviewed a few months ago from the Manhattan Toy Company.  Made as multiple modular sets, each one is made from wood, gender neutral, and really awesome for … …..

Hop Into Portrait Innovations for Amazing Spring Specials

42C

Back in February the big girls had “spring” pictures taken at school.  I do love when my girls bring home their fall school pictures which are a more traditional face shot with the school year in the bottom corner.  I always purchase these to document how they grow each year regardless of the goofy smile or messed up hair, hehe.  But these spring pictures didn’t impress me especially with the outrageous price tag attached to them.  And so I sent them back because I knew I could take all of my girls to Portrait Innovations where I knew I would … …..

Beat Cabin Fever with a Trip to Castaway Bay {Sandusky, Ohio} Plus Giveaway

Castaway Bay Wave Pool

Today is the first day of spring and the weather forecast is looking promising for warmer temperatures.  I hate to wish spring away, but I just can’t wait for summer to get here to spend our days playing by the pool.  Luckily in Ohio we have some amazing indoor water parks available and two weeks ago we visited one of our favorites – Castaway Bay – in Sandusky, Ohio. That weekend getaway helped my girls to beat some of their winter boredom blues and also sparked their excitement for summer to get here quickly too. When entering the Castaway Bay … …..

Get Your Wardrobe Ready for Spring with prAna

prAna Front & Back

A few months ago I wrote a blog post about an amazing clothing company – prAna.  When I wrote that post it was the first time I had ever heard about this company and I absolutely fell in love with the pieces I had received.  I had mentioned that I didn’t think the jeans I received would spend much time in my dresser drawer because I would want to constantly be wearing them and that was definitely the truth.  I know I wear my Kara Jeans at least twice a week and they still look brand spanking new.  And so … …..

Beat the Dry Heat with Honeywell this Winter

Water

While the weather has been really quite mild in Central Indiana this winter, the dry air has really made an impact in our house.  We learned that while our new heat pump is super efficient in weather like this, it just really dries out the air.  We’ve all seemed to battle dry skin this winter, and I’ve definitely noticed that the house has been super staticky.  To combat this, we’ve always used humidifiers in our kids rooms, especially during the cold season.  However, with our bigger house, we needed to think a bit larger in terms of how to humidify … …..

There’s Still Time for Monster Sized Family Fun at Monster Jam® Triple Threat Series™ {Cleveland, Ohio – February 19th 2017}

Monster Jam Zombie Bari

Today was the day!  Monster Jam rolled into Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio and my girls were ready to see the Monster Jam® Triple Threat Series™ live.  Typically we make our Monster Jam outings a family event, but Lilah wasn’t too fond of how loud the trucks were last year so she and Willow decided to have a fun day with their nan and pap.  After dropping them off Dustin, Alleigh, Kaelyn, and I headed to Cleveland for an afternoon of monster sized action. Before the 1pm performance we had the opportunity to attend a Monster Jam® Pit Party … …..
