Who can forget the classic tale of Alice’s adventures in wonderland? I have always thought how much I’d love to share the classic version with my daughter, while keeping her interest all the while. For many classic books, this can be a daunting task! Although she does still enjoy many print books, it’s a real treat for her to be able to engage in such a classic literature, in a meaningful and interesting way, that perhaps she wouldn’t have before. Sometimes I just don’t have the patience to read through another lengthy book, and she doesn’t have the attention span to listen to me read unless there are some moving pictures as the day wears on.
Keeping our kids healthy and ready for summer activities is no easy task. It seems like there is a long list of things to do, that I either forget, or remember at the last minute.

If you told me last year that I would be going to Mexico, I would laugh and say “no way!” but that dream became a reality in July and I brought our editor & site photographer, Megan along for the fun, adventurous ride. With her camera in hand, she captured some amazing photographs of our adventures that I am so excited to share with you today.

Just like big girls, little girls love to express themselves with color, everywhere from their rooms and their clothes to their fingers and toes. And it’s common for pint-sized princesses to pine for polished, dazzling nails like Mom’s.
