It’s The Blog!

You’ve found it, our place of helpful guides, creative expression, silly stories, cute kid pictures and genuine recommendations. We live a balanced and busy life working from home, and sharing the joys we experience every day with our beloved minis! As a lifestyle blog, our posts are all related to things we experience and want to share. We write posts about everything, sometimes partnering brands we trust, use and believe in! Any links or ads you click may generate a small commission for us, without adding any cost to your purchase. This is a way that bloggers offset the costs associated with blogging. You can read on knowing that we have poured our hearts and souls into the content you’ll discover, and hope that you’ll stick around and be part of our community.

don't forget
to follow us On The 'Gram!

The episodes are about 30 minutes so it’s perfect for getting ready before leaving, a car ride, or unwinding and having a snack after school. For us, it’s a great alternative to screen time and still engages the kids in a fun story. The amount of screens kids have to be on for school these days is so high, and we love to have them be able to stay entertained but still be present in their environments to enjoy time doing activities aside from watching TV or playing on their devices.
