What Are Some Fun Summer Activities To Keep Kids Engaged? #PCBigDay #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats.  All opinions are 100% mine.     The Summer can be a great time to spend some quality time with your family and to enjoy some fun outdoor activities with your children.  It is important to keep kids engaged during their vacation from school so that they can be productive during their time off.  There are many exciting activities that you can do with your kids that can help them to nurture and foster their interests and to teach them how to set and accomplish personal goals.     Personally, we love to get outside during the warm weather and have some fun together riding our bikes.  It allows all of us to enjoy some fresh air while getting some great exercise.  We also take the time to enjoy the scenery and nature around our neighborhood while we ride together and laugh and talk together.  I can't think of a better outdoor activity to get our boys up and about during the Summer.     Since we have … [Read more...]

Kellogg’s FiberPlus Cereals Review

    As a Working Mom, I am always looking for ways to include wholesome foods in my family's diet. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to prepare meals and I constantly look for foods that will provide my children with the nutrients and vitamins that they need without taking too much time to prepare.

Celebrate Children’s Day!

There are many traditions that we value from our childhoods that still resonate with us as adults.  Especially when those memories were good ones, we reminisce about them fondly and try to share these experiences with our children as parents.  Having lived in Spain until the age of 8 and then New York City up until now, I have had the privilege of celebrating and sharing in a variety of traditions.  One particular tradition that I have happy memories of is Children's Day. Children's Day is a traditional  holiday that is celebrated throughout the world on various days.  It is especially popular in many Latin American countries.  In Mexico, it is celebrated on April 30th.  The meaning behind this holiday is setting aside a special day to recognize the importance of children and the role that they play in society.  We can all agree that children are very important in society and they bring a lot of joy and love to their families as well as others who come in contact with them … [Read more...]
