Best Educational Shows for Toddlers

We’ve all heard the guidelines about screen time for toddlers, and we’ve all felt the mom-guilt when we ignore them. But it doesn’t have to be all bad – there are plenty of educational shows for toddlers and preschoolers available!

The Only New Year’s Resolution for Moms

I have to say, I’m generally pretty opposed to New Year’s resolutions – I think they tend to be too drastic and set you up for failure. But for moms, I think this one is an exception.

It’s not even so much a resolution as it is a promise for the year. For me, it’s mandatory this year – and I’m betting a lot of you mamas will agree.

The Only New Year’s Resolution moms need: BALANCE.
