This month I'm tackling the big job of emptying the garage. I'm embarrassed to admit that we have a decade of clutter, toys, etc. that piled up in that garage and we reached the point where we had to either admit defeat or take it on head first. I've thrown away a lot of things, but I've also found old toys that don't fit our family anymore but someone might enjoy them. The solution? Sell them on VarageSale. VarageSale is a platform where local and interest based groups form communities to buy, sell and hangout.

I don't want to be a parent who doesn't allow the kids to take risks. I realize the importance of independent play, so I sit back, hold my breath a little, and let them run up the slide or swing from the monkey bars. I even allow them to climb a tree now and then. I've been a Mom for 23 years, so I know scrapes and bruises are not the end of the world. As long as we have the right tools to deal with the injury, everything is fine. I have a ziploc bag first aid kit that I carry with me most of the time. It contains bandaids, wipes and polysporin. That is really all I need to deal with the minor injuries that occur on the playground, and those three tools ensure that my child is well taken care of probably won't expect to be carried all of the way home! We will be discussing kids and ...
