A long get to preschool

800 Kilometers might seem like a long way to drive to take your child to preschool. I would be inclined to agree in most cases, but recently we made this long drive in order to give our daughter a unique preschool experience.

So why did we make the  crazy choice to travel that far when she has already attended preschool for two years? Since she is entering Kindergarten in the Fall we were given the chance to attend a program put on by the Hearing Resource Center that we work with.

Peanut Butter Banana Wraps: A quick and easy snack

Back when I was in High school a group of us were all hanging out at a friends house one day for lunch. Being typical teenagers we of course all were hungry and one of my friends shared this great snack. Of course, we also added a generous amount of brown sugar to the top of the bananas but I omit that when making this snack for my kids. But for a treat you could easily add a sprinkle of sugar!

What I love most about this is how simple it is and that it has carbs, protein and fruit making it a quick and easy balanced snack.

To make this simply spread your desired amount of Peanut butter on a tortilla (we use the smaller ones - great size for kids) and then slice your bananas (or apples) and place on top. Then give it a roll and your done.

Cloth For a Cause Build your Stash Bash GIVEAWAY!

There were a few reasons why we chose to use cloth diapers for our kids. For us it was a combination of saving money, being kinder to the environment and the fact that our children's sensitive skin reacts to traditional disposable diapers. Some families while burdened by the regular cost of disposable diapers find the start up cost of cloth diapers prohibitive. These families are part of the one in three families in the United States and Canada who have to choose between buying disposable diapers and buying food or paying rent.

Regardless of why these families choose cloth, the start up costs can often be intimidating. For that 33%, the start up costs for cloth diapering can be crippling and seemingly insurmountable. That's where Cloth for a Cause, Cloth Diaper Addicts, Viva Veltoro, and Leettle Baby... and the Build Your Stash Bash comes into play.
