My hand-print jewelry from @silversculptor is beautiful!

Image
The last few months have been a bit hectic, so I hate that I was not able to share my new found love of Silver Sculptor's jewelry for Mothers Day. Let me tell you this though, just because Mothers Day has passed, it doesn't mean that you can not give a WONDERFUL gift of love. You could give it as a gift "just because" or for a late Mothers Day, this is a gift that needs to be given!   Don't just stop at moms either... They have great gifts for dads and the grandmother of my children (my mom) has been asking me for mine, so like I said... NOT JUST FOR MOMS!

Five Beach Safety Tips Every Parent Needs to Know

Five Beach Safety Tips Every Parent Needs to Know: Guest Post by Steve Kardian
According to the Center for Disease Control, each year about 4,000 people drown in the United States.  Drowning kills more children 1-4 years of age than anything else, except birth defects.  Among children ages one through fourteen, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury or death (after motor vehicle crashes).  Being aware of the risks and learning some life saving techniques will keep you safe at the beach.
1) Your Span of Control is Limited In the perfect world, every child would have a designated adult supervising them at the beach or pool, but two children is a comfortable number for one adult to supervise.  Any more can become overwhelming and increase the risk of something going wrong.
2) Drowning Doesn’t Look like Drowning (or:  Drowning Doesn’t Look like You Imagine) In the movies, when someone is acting out a drowning scene they wave their arms and scream for help. In real life, dr…

Battle for Metropolis is now open at #SixFlagsOverGeorgia ! #JusticeLeague

Hope you are familiar with Six Flags Over Georgia, if not, you need to be!  As a child, I remember vacations to Six Flags.  When I moved up to Atlanta, I got a season pass with my roommate.  With an 8 year old, we are loving Six Flags these days.  We were invited to come check out their newest ride, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis.  I am NOT a ride person, so Broxton was thrilled to have his big brother there for the day!  I thought we would be there for just a couple hours, due to the Georgia temperatures (I love the air conditioner!)

Like I said, I am not a ride person and we were invited to check out the newest ride. I was excited for Broxton, since he is all about the Justice League and super heroes. I asked his…

Help Your Child Avoid Summer Tantrums with These 5 Tips from Brain Balance:

Summer time is about fun and relaxing from school, at least it is in our house.  This summer we are changing things up a bit (in more ways than one, but that is neither here nor there.) My mom thought a great thing to do would be to make a "coupon book" for Broxton for different things to do over the summer. What all is included?  Well, there is movie night, bike rides, grilling, going to the library and more.  It has been fun for all of us and it keeps the "boring" days fun and even educational!  

So I partnered with Brain Balance—a drug-free, holistic approach to addressing the challenges of behavioral, social, or learning disabilities—to try some of their summer activities, and to share a little bit about their philosophy. And let me tell you, their activities actually work. I'm so excited to keep this momentum going into the summer! 

First, here's the context I learned from Brain B…
