Safe And Natural Essentials For The Family

It’s Back To School time! My son’s first day back was last Thursday! Every year, I always prepare our household with safe, natural, eco-friendly cleaning and lifestyle products. At the first sign of either of us getting sick, I use an oil diffuser and essential oils which seems to help tremendously. We gathered a few safe and natural essentials for the family to keep on hand!

How do you prepare for Back To School? It seems parents have to buy new clothes and school supplies each year. This year, I didn’t have to buy new clothes for him right away. I had just purchased clothing for him a few months before summer started, so his clothes will do for the next few months. I may have to buy new pants for him since he seems to have grown so much! I did have to buy a new backpack since one of the straps on his old backpack was wearing down.

Summer Fun with This 3D Board Game

Summer break is almost here and I am already “tired” of hearing, “I’m Bored”. It happens every year. The first few days of summer are a bliss. Sleeping in, relaxing, and unwinding from the constant motion of a school time routine. After those first few days though, it turns into a constant mantra of “I’m Bored”. It’s inevitable. One of my favorite ways to get through this boredom, however, is board games.

This is Melanie and she is 4 years old in the 99th Percentile, just to give you an idea of the size of Gridopolis.

Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Summer is still in full swing where I live. North Carolina doesn’t usually start to cool down until the end of September which is both a blessing and a curse. Safe water play in these warmer months is extremely important. One huge benefit in our favor though would be our puddle jumpers. Whether its a day at the lake, the community pool, or even our inflatable pool in the back yard – I have peace of my mind that my children are safe in their puddle jumpers.
