School is winding down, and I am about to face a summer with a rising 2nd grader and a rising pre-K-er.  It feels like just yesterday we started kindergarten and then said goodbye to Kindergarten.

Last week, I said goodbye to another class of awesome two-year-olds.  They were a great bunch, and I’ll miss holding their tiny hands, seeing their gigantic grins, and getting super squishy hugs from them twice a week.  This particular class was an “older” group of 2s.  They all turned two before Christmas – three of them in the month of September.  So it was no surprise that all seven of them ended the year in disposable training pants, all showing great signs of getting ready for potty training.

Tips for making a summer bucket list for your family

Tips for Making a Summer Bucket List for Your FamilyA few years ago, Tiffany of RealMomTalk.com created this post on creating a summer bucket list.  I am reviving it, in hopes that it may help inspire some of y’all this summer, as we zip through these last few days of school, and prepare for summer with our kiddos.  

We’ve all been seeing a lot of stuff on Facebook and Pinterest about Family Summer Bucket Lists, and many of you have said that you wish you could do something similar with your family.  Well today, I’m sharing tips on how to make your own summer bucket list!

First off, let me say that our summer bucket list is SUPER long, but yours doesn’t have to be.  We have eight people in our family, and I told the kids I would include everything they suggested, within reason of course.  Pretty much everything made the cut, except Nate’s desires for worldwide travel to places like China, that’s not quite possible with our budget right now!  Plus, there’s really no possible way we will do it all, but it’s still fun to dream!  So don’t feel like your list is no good just because it may only have 5 items on it.  That’s still 5 more super fun memories you will be making with your family this summer!  The point is to make a list of activities and then make a conscious effort to allot time to do those things with your family.  Here are some of my top tips and suggestions to help you get your list going!

Big Savings for Your Little Ones with Luvs Diaper Coupons

Luvs-diaper-coupons_blog-bannerDisclaimer: This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I received a form of compensation in exchange for this post; however, all opinions and cornball jokes are 100% my own.

Y’all know by now I’m cheap, right??  I won’t even hide it anymore with colorful words like “resourceful” or “frugal” (although I’ll keep my name in tact, because “Atlanta’s Cheap Mom” just doesn’t conjure up the same image, ammiright?) – I’m just cheap.

With that being said, being cheap when I had diaper-aged kids meant I was constantly searching for diaper coupons and searching for the best diaper deals, so I could stock up on diapers.  Of course, this was before the influx of smartphone apps added another layer of savings to my money-saving mix.  Had I the help of iBotta to pair with my diaper coupons, well, that would’ve changed the game considerably!  Mothers today have it so easy!  😉 [Read more…]

Disclosure: I received this product for free for a prAna review from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program , May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. However, my opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.   

As a mother of young kids, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in a rut – whether it be at mealtime, household duties (ugh!), fitness, fashion, or all of the above and then some.  Sometimes we truly just trudge through in survival mode, doing the best we can with what we have, and feel accomplished in getting through the day in a somewhat sane fashion.
