Breakfast Without the Fuss- Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits

HBOO1

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! How many times have you heard that in your life? I am one of those crazy moms who really enforces this rule. I get angry when my kids want to rush out the door without eating or when they try to say they aren’t hungry and don’t feel like eating. I have always eaten breakfast. It may not be a sit down breakfast, but I eat something Otherwise, I am not a very nice person. The husband jokes that I become this evil witch if I don’t eat. But, I have noticed it getting harder and harder to make time for it. Between school, library, play dates, baseball.. it is always something. So I often opt for portable snacks. Many mornings I just pour a bag of cereal and grab a sippy cup of milk for the youngest and rush out … read more

Types of Social Interactions Businesses Might Encounter

This infographic has some great information! As a consumer, I know I have been guilty or jumping on social media to voice my opinion many times. It wasn’t until i became a blogger that I realized just how deep the role of social media can play in a business.  I have watched businesses react rudely to a customers online complaint and result in an online bashing from MANY bloggers purposely highlighting the feud so that it reaches a much broader audience than it ever would have. Its a dangerous situation and can truly hurt a businesses reputation. The folks over at Ohio University have hit the nail on the head here. I’d say after reading their do’s and don’ts, anyone looking for a great Masters of Business Administration program should definitely consider Ohio University Online MBA. Looks like they will have any future business leader headed down the road to success … read more

Spark the Imagination with Great Pretenders

super hero

My son has a very active imagination. He enjoys playing dress up and taking on personas of his favorite characters and superheros. All it takes is a mask and he can create an entire plot to act out. At the moment, one of his favorites is Spiderman. He had to have Spiderman pajamas, Spiderman shoes, and even a Spiderman book. He recently got the chance to review a cape and mask set from Great Pretenders that goes perfectly with all of this! The Spider Cape Set is a four piece set and includes the cape, mask, ad 2 wrist bands. I have to say, I have reviewed other capes and masks in the past and none have quite compares to this. The quality of this set is well beyond the $27 price tag. The mask is the perfect size for preschool age children.It is elastic so it holds in place … read more

Max & Ruby: Sweet Siblings on DVD

max and ruby

I remember as a teenager in high school, I spent a lot of time baby sitting. I was also in Early Childhood Education classes and just knew I wanted to work with kids some how as i got older. As a result, I did spend a lot of time watching cartoons. I always loved one particular Nickelodeon show, Max and Ruby. It’s a show about Ruby and her little brother Max and the sibling relationship they shared. It was always so cute to me to see how an older sister could manage to have so much patience with her younger brother even when he did everything that would get on your nerves. Their bond was unbreakable and was a show to really represent how families should be. Now that I am grown, I have 2 kids as well and still love the show! It makes me giggle because I see … read more
