Planet Box

This is forever my favorite product. Almost six years ago I splurged on this lunchbox and my kiddo is still using the same one!! A few years ago I bought each of my kiddos a second Planetbox and now I make two days worth of lunches at once.

Square Panda

I recently purchased this in an effort to boost the letter knowledge of my youngest. So far I have been really impressed with the simplicity of the games and the hands on aspect.


Favorite Books

The Explosive Child

I read this book a few years ago and recently picked it up again as we have been dealing with some behavior issues here at home. It is an absolutely fantastic read and I highly recommended it to anyone hoping to better understand behavioral challenges.


Parenting with Love and Logic

I guess it might be considered standard reading for any parent, but up until recently I had never actually read it. I think the idea of natural consequences is so important to teach as a parent and is a great resource for parents with all ages of kids.


Mindful Parenting

This book was recommended to me by a Neurofeedback Specialist we were seeing. It speaks to the stress our kids face in the world today and offers techniques to create a calmer and more relaxed environment for you kids.


Siblings Without Rivalry

Sibling rivalry is a constant in our house. I found this book extremely helpful in understanding and dealing with it. In particular, there is a great chapter called “Equal is Less” which was really helpful for me in understanding my individual kids needs and expectations.


The Sibling Effect

Didn’t I already mention that sibling rivalry was a thing at our house? This is another book regarding siblings that I read about the same time as Siblings Without Rivalry. What I like about this one is that it does a great job at looking at how the kids interpret siblings and therefore offers a unique perspective on what it’s like to be in a sibling relationship.
