I received product samples to facilitate my party and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Planning For The Future: Invisalign Braces For Kendall

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for which I was compensated. All opinions are mine unless noted otherwise. Very early on we noticed that Kendall's teeth weren't coming in straight and they were just getting worse.

How to get your kids to eat… something #hfbrightside

Raising Makenna to like fruits and veggies was so simple - food, plate, eat. She always did and 8 1/2 years later she still does. Talk about her 3-year-old sister though and things don't ever, ever go over so smoothly. Not sure where we went wrong because as a baby Kendall loved carrots, and peas. Then somewhere along the line she just hated them and now we get a face like … [Read more...]

It's summer in Florida and that means swimming almost every day! Last week we had a full day of sun in between the day-night rainy days we've been having.

A few weeks ago I talked about how 2013 was going to be THE YEAR for Kendall. She … [Read more...]

Go Away Flu!

As a mom I never want to see my girls get sick. It's a horrible time for the whole family. While we try to do all we can to prevent the sickies from entering the house like washing our hands, covering our mouths when we sneeze or cough, no play dates if my friends have sick kids (and vise versa), ect; a cold and flu can still sneak in. Since we are a non-vac family I … [Read more...]
