STEM Toys for Kids of All Ages

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. When it comes to educating our kids, STEM learning plays a huge part. I will be honest, for the longest time I did not know what STEM was, but became very interested after asking my 11-year-old about it and seeing how excited she was to explain it to me. Since STEM focuses on science, technology, engineering, and math it is something that I am happy and excited that my girls are focusing on and learning.

Now that I know what STEM is, I've discovered that there are quite a bit of amazing STEM toys for kids of all ages. STEM Toys for Kids of All … [Read more...]

What Every Baby Diaper Bag Needs

5 Lessons I Learned From My Mother

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. I am the youngest of 3 daughters. Growing up, I lived with one of my sisters, my mom, my step-father, a cat, and around 6 dogs. For the most part, I was a happy kid.
