October 20, 2017 By · 63 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent the movies below for our review & a giveaway. The winner will be sent the prize by the company, that is not the responsibility of the blogger. I wrote this up knowing a few readers would absolutely love these movies for their little ones.

Nicoli liked watching all four of these movies picked out by NCircle Entertainment as October Selections, but I think he had two ultimate favorites: Sid and ABC Monsters! He loves learning and talking about the alphabet so watching them come to life and run around on the screen was a definite win for him. This is a great selection for those little preschoolers or those just starting out in school.

ABC Monsters: Starring VWXYZ
Release Date: 10/03/2017

In this DVD, embark on adventures with Alice, Brian, and Cherry Berry to search high and low for the letters V, W, X, Y, and Z. It’s a very windy day in Capital Town. After checking the ABC Monsters, it seems that one of them is missing – W-Monster! So Alice, Brian, and Cherry Berry head into town in hopes of finding their missing friend, W-Monster. Along the way they meet, Wanda the Weaver, Wendy the Window Cleaner and then Willie Webster. Hopefully, one of them will be able to help Alice, Brian and Cherry Berry find W-Monster during this windy day.

Packing Hot Lunches for Cool Weather

September 15, 2017 By · No Comments

After a long, hot summer, we all look forward to those first crisp fall days. And with it our menus change.  Packing Hot Lunches For The First Cool Fall Days doesn’t have to be hard.  Why not change the lunch you pack for your kids as well. Salads, wraps, and cold sandwiches are great late summer options, but when the temperatures start to drop, your little ones will appreciate a hot dish in their lunch box.

Soup And A Hot Sandwich

One of my favorite school lunches as a kid was tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwiches. Who doesn’t love soup and a hot sandwich for lunch on a cool, crisp, fall day? If you thought those were outside your packed lunch capabilities, think again. All it takes is a small thermos, some aluminum foil and ideally an insulated lunch box.

Make the soup the day before from scratch, or heat up some canned soup in the morning, right before school. Get it piping hot, and if possible, run some hot or even boiling water in the thermos first to get everything as warm as possible. Pour the soup into the thermos and sit it in the insulated lunch box. Don’t forget to pack a spoon. Lastly, make the hot sandwich. Grilled cheese or grilled ham and cheese are always a favorite around here, as are any type of Panini. Fix the sandwich as usual and then wrap it in several layers of aluminum foil. If you’re worried about the bread getting soggy, wrap it in a paper towel first, then the foil. Keep the sandwich in the insulated lunch box and everything should be staying toasty warm for hours. Mix and match the soup and sandwich combos for endless portable lunch possibilities.

Chili and Stew

You’re not limited to only soup. A nice hearty stew or a bowl of chili with some corn chips or a side of fresh cornbread make a nice addition to any lunch box. Make a batch of your favorite chili or stew and put it in your kids’ lunch boxes for the following days.

Another great option is to freeze it in smaller portions and take them out as needed to add to lunch boxes. This is also a great time for you to take lunch to work or keep a bowl at home to reheat at lunchtime. As with the soup, we talked about earlier, you can get a short thermos, run hot water in it, and then fill it with the piping hot chili or stew. That will keep the lunch warm until well past lunchtime.

Leftovers Galore

Last but not least, don’t forget about leftovers. They make for great lunchbox additions. There are wide-mouthed thermos out there that can hold a variety of leftover food from pasta dishes to things like fried rice, or anything you can think of that would work well put in a bowl.

If your child has access to a microwave, you can pack just about any leftover that can then be heated at school. Find a few microwave-safe plastic containers that work well and fit your child’s lunch box and you’re good to go.

3 Tips to Encourage a Reluctant Reader

September 1, 2017 By · No Comments

Disclosure: There are affiliate links in this post, if you click on it I might make a few coins.

School is in session! Is your child not wanting to pick up a book and read? As a mom to five, I’ve had a little experience in this area, at least when it came to my boys. There’s hope out there and right at your fingertips.

1. Early Bedtime/Reading– Now this isn’t one you MUST do, that is as long as your child suddenly gets the “energy” to read his/her book. Typically no child wants to go to bed early unless they are REALLY tried. Have a normal bedtime routine in place on days they do NOT want to read have an early to bed rule and after you tuck them in ask them “Would you like lights out or would you like to stay up and read for a bit?”
