Family Travels Across the Pond

My husband and I have traveled quite a bit with our children since they were born. Planes, subways, and automobiles—we have done it all. I always tell my children that they traveled even while in my belly. My son traveled to Tennessee in such a warm and cozy fashion, and my daughter enjoyed her first […]

Clean Green: Healthier Cleaning

Raise your hand if you like to clean! What?—no one?! Well, me either. But, unfortunately, it has to be done, and I am the person doing most of the cleaning. Ugh.

Remember having a car that just looked good and drove well and that was enough? Remember blasting music and singing along with your favorite song? Remember when […]

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Freebies to You!

Birthdays are a big deal to kids, so around my house we like to celebrate in a big way. We usually have a fiesta of some sort for the kids on the weekend before or after their birthday. However, that sometimes leaves their actual birthday to pale in comparison. Since I’ve usually invested a small […]

The Summer Before My Teenager Arrives

I think we all have some special summer memories. I certainly have my share of memories of summers as a kid. I remember occasional raspas (snow cones), watermelon with my abuelita, and those summer trips. Of course, there was also the Texas heat and arguments with my siblings. Now, as an adult and mom, my […]
