I have two daughters, Amelia and Olivia. At 5 and 3, these kids are a handful. So it has become glaringly apparent to me that I’ve lost my mind since I decided to homeschool them. Together. At the same time. In addition to working part-time early mornings and taking online and late night college classes. Ok, so all “what the heck were you thinking?!” comments aside, I am fully confident in my ability to not screw this up. Over the coming months, I’ll be keeping you up to date on the exciting life of my crazy family and our journey.

Back to school time means new back packs! I loved picking out a new backpack each year, and I am sure my daughter will be the same when she’s older. Dabbawalla makes the cutest bags! They are great for younger school age children, and also for children in day care.

I went to check my e-mail last night and saw the subject: Modern Day Moms was nominated for an award. Say what! I quickly opened it up and found out that this blog here has been nominated by Parents.com as an All-Around Best Mom Blog! Holy jeepers. (deal with my weird slang, k?) I promptly logged onto beluga where the moms of this site and I chat, nightly… okay well, pretty much all throughout the day. We are bffls and that’s just what we do, ya know?

Shopping around for a car seat can be quite overwhelming. There are so many option, styles, and opinions as to which car seat is the “best” car seat out there. Having had a child before, I knew which type of things I did not want in a car seat. I wanted an infant car seat that would take us up to a year and then I wanted a convertible car seat that will be the car seat my child will be in until he is out of a booster seat. You spend so much money on them that I want not only my monies worth but one that I can trust to keep my children safe.

Welcome to Jess T.’s Tech Tuesday, where all your geek are belong to us!

If you’re like me, you spend a LOT of time on the computer. Between work, information gathering, socializing and shopping, computers are an integral part of our daily lives. Apart from the rare and extreme situations, adults don’t seem to suffer severe side effects from this kind of  “digitalization.” But what about kids?

As you may have realized, I am a total spaz about eco-friendly stuff. I have been known to scream, “Keep your toxic BPA away from me!” to friends and family – luckily not to strangers yet. While I am aware that this may seem irrational to some of you, I’m sure there are others who have become total chemical-phobics just like me. That’s why I love companies like Green Toys.

Just showing our appreciation to some fabulous Modern Day Moms sponsors this month! Take a moment to stop by and say hello them as we certainly think the best of these companies.

There was something about this stroller that drew me in. I wasn’t sure if it was the attractiveness, the numerous amounts of accessories you can attach or the fact that Baby Jogger is such an outstanding and reputable name in the industry. It wasn’t until the moment I opened the box that I knew it wasn’t just one of those reasons but ALL of them… and more! This stroller seriously rocks my world. Everything from putting the stroller together to folding it for storing has been so easy.
