I don't know about your children, but when ours arrive home after school they are hun-gry. *laugh* Even after having had a great lunch at school, it's time to eat again for these growing Muffins!

When we were preparing to begin this year with public school, I really wanted a great plan for our children's lunches. As simple as it sounds, I wondered how I could make sure our children have enough nutrition in that little bag? How can I make sure they'll eat it and not give it away or [...]

I so enjoy the little "mom tips" that I've come across in life - those little things that I've learned learned from my mom, or a mom friend, that just make life a little nicer.  Things that make the "daily-daily" just a little easier, or make me smile a little more, or maybe will be [...]

Do you ever find that when it's time to go out the door to school that your child doesn't know where their backpack is exactly, which means they didn't put that paper you signed into the backpack either. The lunch bag is up on the kitchen counter ready to go, but only because you had [...]
