My Square Meal Lunch Boxes

It is true summer is almost over and it is time to start the back to school shopping. One of my least favorite things to do is shop for back to school items. Most items I feel are cheaply made thus the need to purchase a new one each year. I purchased this eco-friendly lunch box last year for my son and I am happy to say it is still in great condition. My Square Meal lunch boxes are beautifully made and the bento box is dish washer safe. The cool thing about these lunch boxes is you get a menu card with ideas of how to fill your lunch box. I LOVE THAT! So many times I was stumped for what to pack and the menu card was my savior. Would love to hear your back to school secrets.

Here is another great google. I was trying to decide if a movie would be appropriate for my 7 year old son and came across Kids-In-Mind:Movie Ratings. This cool site list every movie you can think of and gives a rating based on Sex/Nudity, Violence/Gore and Profanity. The complete content analysis gives you insight into the movie and possible questions that may arise from your child. The best part about it is there is an App for this site so you can check movie ratings on the go.

Summer Safety

Found this amazing informative article that I thought I would share with you. Thank goodness for me I read this before our outing on 4th of July when my little one decided to "swim" without her floaties. It was the look on her face that let me know she needed help. To everyone else around us it looked like she was kicking and keeping her head above water. After we pulled her out she started crying and saying she was scared. Please read Drowning looks different than you may save someones life.

Parenting Blues

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Saw this story this morning on the Today Show and thought I would open this up for discussion. Some days I find myself in a "funk" and all I want to do is shower quickly and get out of the house to have a little peace and quiet. I feel guilty, but after seeing this piece it is nice to know I am not alone. Parenting is hard and no one can prepare you for the 24 hour job, the rewards are great but do we have to lose our identity for new one.."parent." Please leave comments and let me know what you think.

Fill in the Blankie

I have been looking for fun and unique gifts for friends and I came across this wonderful gift idea. Fill in the Blankie is a fabulous gift for that special occasion. One of my dear friends is expecting and I purchased a blankie that fits her style. The fun thing about these blankies is you can personalize them with your own sweet messages. They are a little pricey but well worth it.
