Oh yes...I just went there. Waffles, practically their own food group, gluten free! At school registration today, my daughter and some of her friends commented about the SnapChat filter for National Waffle Day. That led to one of her friends saying we needed to have waffles. She has to eat gluten free, so we swung by … Continue reading National Waffle Day – Gluten Free
Keep It Clean
Chores. I don't really like that word, but house upkeep is a necessary evil. There are those rare people that actually LIKE doing it, my mom for instance, but I would say a majority of us wish there was a group of magical fairies that came into our home and cleaned while we were sleeping … Continue reading Keep It Clean
Middle School Conversations
Standing in line at school registration today, I was reminded of how much sting some words can have. Kids not wanting to see certain kids, how much they don't like someone. I was glad to hear that many of them have no problem speaking 'real' with their friends while parents are present. Even engaging some … Continue reading Middle School Conversations
What To Wear – Back To School Part 2
Middle School. I often call it the holding place while tweens and young teens get through the major changes during puberty. I firmly believe that is why middle school came into play. Several decades ago schools went K-8 then 9-12. A lot of private schools still do. Well someone somewhere must of gotten smart and … Continue reading What To Wear – Back To School Part 2
Back To School – Part 1

Geotag info in photos is the code that anyone could use to find the location a photo was taken. So if you or … Continue reading Where You At?
Weekend Line Up – Friday Freak Out
Friday...a lot of us, myself included, feel an automatic stress release hearing that word. Nine-to-fivers have a couple days off, don’t need to constantly tell your kid, “Time for bed!”. No lunches to make in a rush after dinner, while making sure everything is ready to go the next morning. Checking homework or helping them … Continue reading Weekend Line Up – Friday Freak Out
Boob Tube, YouTube
YouTube will be the last social media app for tweens/teens that I will talk about this week. Don't worry, there will be more. You do not need an account to view videos on YouTube. I repeat - you do not need an account to view videos on YouTube. Yay, somewhere our kids, under 13, can … Continue reading Boob Tube, YouTube
I Have The Power
Parent Kit Pricing - First month is free; Six months $24.99; 12 months $39.99. There are some decent free apps for parental control out there, but paying for one is going to give you the better platform - personal opinion. No limit on how many kids and/or devices, so you can have Child 1 iPad, … Continue reading I Have The Power
