How I get my Kids to eat Vegetables and Actually Like Them


I don’t know about you, but trying to get my kid to eat vegetables is like pulling teeth! I know it is probably not the biggest deal if they don’t eat a ton of vegetables. But, I have to say it is pretty satisfying when you can get your kid to eat something green every so often. Especially when your child usually fights it tooth and nail.

So, how to I get my strong willed child to willingly eat her vegetables?

Best Toys for Traveling with Toddlers


Are you planning a family road trip this summer? Do you have little ones that need to be entertained?

I am planning to embark on a 10-hour road trip with my toddlers next week. In preparation, I have searched (and searched) for the best toys for car rides. You see, I have found that you can’t just bring any old toys on long car trips. Last week we took a 1 1/2 hour trip to visit family. My son cried most of the way, and was inconsolable. The only toy that made him happy was a ball, which he kept throwing overboard.

We do have a DVD player in the car, but I really don’t want my daughter watching it the whole time! My plan is to get some new DVDs at the library, watch one DVD and then listen to music while playing with a new toy. I notice that she learns a lot in the car when she is not watching the DVD player. So, I hope to keep the TV watching at a minimum.

So, in preparation for our big trip, I bought some toys that are made specifically for traveling. Here are some of the best ones I have found so far!
