Dine at Red Robin to Earn Money for Your School

*This is a sponsored post on behalf of VolunteerSpot and Red Robin* As a mom of a child who is now in school I am constantly looking for ways to help out or earn money for my child's school. I have signed up for all volunteer lists, donated to PTO, chaperoned field trips, and passed the fundraiser booklet around...and it's only November. Still, I feel like I could be doing more to support the school financially. Many schools across our nation are on tight budgets that are stretched extremely thin. The education of our children... our future doctors, lawyers, business owners, and leaders, … [Read more...]

5 Reasons You Should Rent Toys from Pley Instead of Buying

This post was made possible by Pley.com.Toys provide more than just a fun activity for our children.

Be a Part of the Nestlé® Pure Life® Ripple Effect

Thank you Nestlé® Pure Life® for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. Do you struggle to get your kids to drink enough water? Getting my oldest daughter to drink water has always been a battle. She says she hates the taste of water, so she's not touching it unless she has no other option. With all the sugary drinks that are available to our kids why would she want to choose the boring healthier option? I am constantly trying to think of new ways to get my daughter to drink more water. Kids in America aren't drinking the amount of water they need. A new study released by Nestlé® … [Read more...]

The Bright Schools Competition Educates Students on Link between Light and Sleep

This content was made possible by VolunteerSpot and the Bright Schools Competition. Does your child get enough sleep at night? Students who don't get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from behavioral issues that can range from rule breaking to more severe problems like depression and anxiety. Children who get the recommended amount of sleep are more creative, perform better in school, and have more self-control. My oldest has battled sleep issues much of her life. She is cranky when she doesn't get enough sleep, and has a really hard time concentrating throughout the day. She is more … [Read more...]
