To My Children on Election Day

November 8, 2016

Dear Grayson and Charlie, What a weird day, my loves. It’s not just another day. It’s not even just another election. Today will make history. One way or another, today will shape our country in a new way. I’m scrolling through social media and there are so many emotions. I’m torn between speaking my mind and staying silent. I am stuck between vomiting my opinions and resigning to the fact that no one will hear my heart, my facts, or…

How To Have a Stress-Free Moving Day with Kids

October 19, 2016

This post was sponsored by Two Men and a Truck. All opinions are mine. If you follow me on social media, you know that we moved last week! We had about two weeks to move from the time we found the new house, so you can imagine the whirlwind. As the self-titled Crenshaw House Manager, I knew I had a busy couple of weeks ahead. I was also mildly nervous about moving with two kids. The last time I moved,…

Car Seat Safety with Chicco

September 30, 2016

Since it’s the last day of September, I wanted to share a quick reminder about Baby Safety Month; specifically, car seat safety! I partnered with Chicco to encourage everyone to double check information about car seat safety to ensure you are up to date on best practice. I know that since I had Grayson, the recommendations have changed immensely. I had to re-learn the standard. We all roll our eyes at the Facebook mom who corrects another mom for having…

A Screen Time Reward System

September 26, 2016

I know there is a lot of debate about screen time and whether or not it is healthy for children. How much time should they get? What restrictions should they have? Well, some of you might think I am a terrible mother, but I am not anti-screen time….at all. First of all, I think that generalizing all screen time is negligent. There is plenty out there that isn’t brain melting garbage. There are endless games and apps that spark creativity,…

The Perfect Activity For The Fidgety Kid

September 23, 2016

One of the craziest parts about parenting is that we can’t predict what phase is coming next. As much as we think we have it all figured out, we don’t. Our kids evolve and change and develop new characteristics daily. I’m really hoping some other boy moms can relate to me, here. For Grayson, six years old came with new heights of energy and a significantly decreased attention span. I didn’t see that coming. I’m not naive to how little…

Guilt Free Toddler Meals at the Ball Park

September 9, 2016

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprout Organic Foods for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m not sure if it’s like this everywhere, but here around Atlanta, the kids play baseball in the Spring and the Fall. The Fall is usually a little more laid back. They focus more on fundamentals, learning and just having fun. This is my fourth season of being a baseball mom. I am positive that some of you moms…

How To Talk About Your Child’s Day | Communication Activity

August 16, 2016

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CreateWithHP #CollectiveBias How many of your kids suddenly have amnesia at the end of the day when you ask how their day went? *raises hand* I remember when Grayson started Kindergarten last year and I was so excited for him to get off the bus and tell me all about his day. I couldn’t wait to hear about all his new friends, his…

Healthy Options For Picky Toddlers

August 11, 2016

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprout Organic Foods. All opinions are 100% mine. It still sounds weird saying “toddler”! As you all know, Charlie just turned one. We are visiting colleges and shopping for prom dresses. Just kidding. She is actually just throwing puffs around the living room and biting pieces of her board book.…
