Why Aren’t You Using Frozen Vegetables?

Virtually ever mother that has ever existed has said some version of the same sentence: Eat your vegetables or you won’t grow big and strong. And I’m here to tell you that we are absolutely right. Eat your vegetables, kids. But buying fresh produce isn’t always the best option. Instead, using frozen vegetables is a [ keep reading ]

Are We Sitting Too Much? Absolutely

Sitting is the default in modern society. We sit at home. We sit at school and work. And then we sit while watching TV, playing video games, reading, hanging out with friends.

I Love Rewatching Shows and so Should You

rewatching shows

Netflix made it easier than ever to rewatch our favorite shows over and over and over again. Like a lot of other people, my choice of show is The Office, although I’m also partial to a good binge of Gilmore Girls.

It’s true — itty bitty baby laughs are one of the best things in the whole world. Hearing a small baby’s gurgling laugh is enough to make my ovaries ache and I have to talk myself off the precipice of adding a third kid into the mix. But you know what? No one told me [ keep reading ]

18 Rules for My Kids

Did anyone else miss getting their copy of Rules for Life 101? We must have been collectively absent the day they were passed out.

Dad Panics over Bearded Dragon

While humans fuss over mammals with their furry faces and warm bodies that keep our feet warm during the winter (shout-out to dogs sleeping at the foot of the bed), reptiles rank fairly low on the scale of beloved animals. The way this dad panics over a bearded dragon is a hilarious example of this. [ keep reading ]

Girl Dressed as BB-8 Steals Our Hearts

We’ve all been there. It’s time to run errands and you’re trying to hurry your kid out of the house. There’s just one thing standing in your way — they won’t take off their old Halloween costume. It’s cute and all, but it’s 100°, but a long-sleeved Mario costume isn’t really the most weather-appropriate outfit. [ keep reading ]

The Sometimes Dangerous Power of Nostalgia

Spoiler alert: Your childhood probably wasn’t as great as you remember. Even if it was, that doesn’t make it better than the childhoods that today’s kids are enjoying. Disagree with me? That’s because the power of nostalgia is a funny little thing. Nostalgia lets you look back on your past and get a warm, fuzzy [ keep reading ]

Do You Really Need 10,000 Steps Every Day? Probably Not

Find any gathering of adults, and I can almost guarantee that the question, “So which tracker do you use?” will come up. Tracking steps 10,000 steps every day is as ubiquitous as those 80 Starbucks you find on half the corners in your city. For the record, I wear a Garmin Forerunner 235 and drink [ keep reading ]
