Starting this new journey can be stressful for our little guys. All the change and excitement will not only cause anxiety  ...

Much to the despair of our little ones, back-to-school time is fast approaching. The freedom and fun of summer will soon be over and the reality of routines and homework is about to start.

Summer is winding down and the stores are  all in Back-to-School mode. My oldest has mixed feelings about the whole ordeal. While he does miss his friends, he also likes to sleep in. So any reminder he sees in stores doesn’t always have the same affect as it does for me. One of the memories I have growing up is our new shoes for school. Each and every August my mom would take us out, give us a limit and let us pick our own shoes. The shoe stores were always full but we always found  ...

This kid has had a thing for it since he was a toddler and adds it to just about everything. So when we were introduced to  ...
