Stress-free Birthday Gift Guide - For ANY Child 3 Years & Older!

If you're a parent or relative of young children, then you've got birthdays to attend. Finding the appropriate gift can be time-consuming, and a bit stressful - whether it's coming directly from you or from your child, especially if you or your child do not know the birthday child very well.

As an added element of stress, some parents, much like myself, cringe at the thought of another box of Legos, more tiny metal cars, and a dozen more action figures. I would imagine that there are plenty of other parents that think this too. I feel like my kids and I go on a purging spree before every birthday party, because seriously, what child needs 20 Batman action figures?

Never fear! Here is a handy a gift guide that will make any kid (and parent!) happy. This gift guide is appropriate for any time of year so you can pin or bookmark this page as your gift that keeps on giving!

These awesome gifts are all organized by age group from toddler to teen, and all of them are under $40. Happy gifting!

Gifts for Ages 3-5

5 Fall Health & Wellness Essentials + Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

I loooove fall. The crisp air, falling leaves, hot coffee cup in hand...what a peaceful transition into the next season after a hot and humid summer. What I do not like is that along with the beauty and peacefulness that comes with fall, comes sickness like colds, flu, and that horrible stomach bug.

 Here are my top favorite sick season essentials : 

1. Seventh Generation Plant Based Disinfecting Cleaners

Seventh Generation cleaning products are my go-to for keeping the nasty germs away. The disinfecting multi-surface plant-based spray cleans and disinfects in one quick and easy step. No rinsing or wiping is required, even on food contact surfaces. My mind is at ease, because this streak-free cleaner kills 99.99% of germs botanically and is effective against many Influenza A viruses including H1N1, Rhinovirus, MRSA, Staph, Salmonella.

Confessions of a Sleep Deprived Homeschooler - Episode One : Flowers & People Who Do Not Take Showers

Yesterday marked the first official day of the 2017/2018 school year. This year, both of my boys are in a "hybrid" school in which they attend a classroom two times per week and I help them with the work assigned by their teachers on the other three days.

Sounds beautiful right? 

In many ways yes, the answer is yes. I do not have to piece together my own curriculum, I get a much needed "mommy break" part of the week, I get to see my kids more, be a crucial piece to their learning, and I am less likely to "slack off" and keep somewhat of a schedule. They both adored their teachers and spoke a mile per minute about all of the fun things and assignments that they did that day and could not wait to go back. However, today was the first day of schooling at home...and I already want to throw in the towel.

Between a fussy child that wants to nurse every time that I want to sit and catch a breath (and still wakes up every one to two hours per night / early morning) and the seven year old who thinks that math was a creation of the devil, I cry inside.

Amazon Prime Day STARTS TONIGHT - PLUS $100.00 Credit Towards Diapers & Wipes!

 Starting TONIGHT 6pm PST / 9pm EST Amazon Prime deals begin! These special deals are for Prime Members only, but the GOOD NEWS is that you can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial or a FREE 6-month trial if you are a student!

I have been a Prime member since my oldest was a baby (almost 9 years ago) and my family relies heavily on Amazon Prime for so much, stream-able movies, music, and free 2-day shipping (a HUGE savings in itself because all of our family and friends live out of state and shipping for gifts can cost a small fortune). To make your Amazon savings stretch even further, you can get 20% back on select items on Prime Day with an Amazon Prime credit card!

Also during this special sale, you can get 40% off a 6-month Audible audio book subscription, perfect for those summer road trips or for those who travel for their jobs. My husband greatly appreciates this service since he is on the road quite frequently.

Also, if you are expecting, this is the time to open an Amazon Baby Gift Registry, because you can get a $100 credit towards diapers and wipes! Us parents know how quickly $100.00 can add up!
