Team Spirit with LilFan: licensed booster seats (coupon & giveaway)

Living in northern Illinois, I’m not sure I have any choice but to be a Chicago Cubs fan! I was never that into baseball until I met my husband. We spent our first year of college at different universities, two hours apart. One way we stayed connected between visits was by cheering on the Cubbies. Now it’s something fun we can pass to our kids, too. Go Cubs, Go!

LilFan has a whole line of licensed products including booster seats, diaper bags, and seat protectors. They have licenses with the NFL, MLB, NHL,

Teaching Your Kids About Drugs and Alcohol

Post contributed by Amanda G.

There is a lot of debate out there about the best time to start teaching your kids about drugs and alcohol. Some parents believe it is best not to scare younger kids and that teaching them about stranger danger is enough; that it is better to wait until kids are older, like middle school aged, to start teaching them about drinking, drugs, the dangers of addiction, etc.

Guess what: by the time your kids are heading off to junior high school, most of them have already been exposed, at

Potty Training Tips with Pampers Easy Ups

This post was written in partnership with Pampers.

Potty training is… frustrating? stressful? a lot of work? fun?! We’re right in the middle of potty training with our 3-year-old daughter. Our son was easy—granted, he was almost 4 by the time he potty trained, but he basically just woke up one day and decided that was it. No more diapers. He rarely ever had an accident. Potty training? A breeze! This “training” stuff is nonsense, I thought.

My daughter is proving to be a bit more difficult. She turned 3 about 4 months

First, it comes with everything you need to get started: the Asana 35 infant car seat, the car seat base, the Evoq stroller that allows the

Teach Your Children to Excel with the Power of Music

You can use the power of music to help a child with so many different things, including both educational and social growth. Music can help children develop hobbies and become a better-rounded individual. When words are difficult to comprehend or emotions are simply running too high, music is something that can soothe the soul and nurture common ground. As a parent, helping your child harness this creative energy and use it to build self-confidence is one of the most important things you can do.

VTech Video Monitor: Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Baby Monitor

You guys. I don’t have any babies in this house anymore (sob sob), but I might as well with Rebecca’s sleeping habits. Our oldest, Ryan, was so easy that I feel like we’re basically starting over with Rebecca! He went into a big boy bed before age 2 and never got out when he wasn’t supposed to.

Rebecca is 2. She’s still in her crib, which she can climb out of, and she does at every opportunity—meaning, the instant we leave her bedroom. When she turns 3 soon, we are moving her into a
