Back to School Help from Learning Resources

Well that’s it, he’s back to school. Today is the end of his first week and we have had a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Tears, anxiety, worry, excitement, joy.

Treads School Shoes – Review and Competition

Let’s talk school shoes. A constant expense. If it’s not our children constantly growing, it’s the shoes themselves wearing out.

Real Good Ketchup

I’m hoping I’m not the only parent to have found that adding Ketchup to seemingly any meal makes it so down far more easily!

I’m fully aware it’s not always the best choice though. I try hard to think about what I’m feeding L and keep it healthy as well as fun but it’s not always that easy.
