Electronic Free Camping Ideas for Kids

This post contains affiliate links. My husband and I love to go camping. We've been going camping for over 20 years and have gone with two different sets of kids. Our first set of kids, which are now adults, was in the time when only the really rich had cell phones and social media did not exist. These were the best camping trips ever. We created so many memories. Now we get to continue our love for camping with our younger girls that range in ages of 5 to 11 years old. These camping trips are fun but they are not the same. With this set of kids, they seem to not appreciate or even at times notice the world around them. They are oblivious and too obsessed with their electronic gadgets. When our family goes camping, I don't allow … [Read more...]

Real Life Struggles of Head Lice

This post was sponsored by Nix® Ultra as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and I received products to facilitate my review.

Even though my girls have been taught not to share hairbrushes, hats, and hairbows with their friends, 2 years ago lice crept into our … [Read more...]
