Most weekends when we head out to Walt Disney World, you’ll find us at Magic Kingdom. I feel like that park has more to offer for younger kids… but I’m loving that Hollywood Studios has been adding Disney Junior selections.
We thought this would be the perfect getaway for a toddler birthday celebration. Since we only have birthday parties every other year (I’ll post about that later), this was a great party alternative. Continue reading “What You Want To Know About The Disney Junior Dance Party – Hollywood Studios”
One of the things I honestly never thought about before becoming a parent was where my kids were going to go on non-school days. It’s not on any parenting list, they just show up. I loved those random days as a kid… something fun and different, but now as a parent I’m like … OK… another day that I need to plan.
It can be a bit stressful. Where are they going to go? How are they going to get there? How will it change our schedule? AND… how do I keep them away from screens (which is a problem I’m encountering more and more).

Do you ever wake up one morning and have absolutely no idea it was supposed to rain all day? I even looked at other places around the state to go. 75% of Florida was covered in water, so staying in and working around the house seemed like the thing to do.
I can’t believe we have never been before. Ok. Yes, I can believe it because of the age of the boys, but as we were leaving my husband looked at me and said, when they come back we are absolutely going again. No question about it.
He felt like a kid again. They all loved it so much! Continue reading “Marvel Universe LIVE!”
Kids can do chores. (Insert gasp here…)
Yes! They are capable of doing much more than most parents expect these days.
I remember when I was in Kindergarten doing chores. You probably did too.
Setting the table for dinner. Clearing the plates after dinner. Dusting the living room shelves. I always loved that one. Continue reading “Three Easy Ways To Have Your Kids Help Around the House”
The first week of vacation was great right? Tons to do around the house, Christmas gifts to play with… family in town. But now your kids are marching around the house blowing on a $.25 whistle their grandmother gave them and screaming about how the other one is looking at them. No? Only me? Yeah, I didn’t think so…
This mama is tired and needs something for my kids to do to keep them busy and my house less of a hazard zone. You too? Continue reading “Winter Zoo Camp – Palm Beach Zoo”
I wasn’t always a Disney expert. I’m still not…but I get asked a lot what parents and families can do at Disney that doesn’t cost too much. My first answer is Disney Springs.
It is an awesome go-to when you are in Orlando for so many reasons.
If you don’t have a full day for the parks, or you don’t want to purchase a ticket but still want to enjoy a bit of the magic, head to Disney Springs. Sometimes I still slip up and call it Downtown Disney, it’s OK the locals know what you mean. Continue reading “International Soda Flight- Disney Springs”
Years ago, before I even had the boys I believe…I bought a 4 pack of Disney character ornaments. I loved them. I still love them. But I remember when I paid for them thinking, ‘am I really buying ornaments that are $20 each’.
You know why I did it??? Because back then I didn’t have little hands that could in a mere 2 seconds make them come crashing to the floor. Continue reading “Super Simple Mickey Inspired Ornaments”
