Welcome February + Free Printable Calendar

I may not know where January flew off to, but it always feels good to turn the calendar to a fresh new page.  We’re excited to welcome this new month with the launch of free printables!  This month’s free printable is a pretty, February 2016 calendar sheet.

I’m in constant negotiations with the kids to not touch my calendar that somehow codifies all of those important dates and activates. And I happen to love a visible calendar in my work space.  The kids have grown accustomed to counting how many sleeps until the next special day – and February is certainly sprinkled with importance!  There’s a lot to look forward to over here from a massive school break to daddy’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, a first piano recital and Chinese New Year.  Whether you’re printing this sweet watercolor calendar for your kids, or for yourself – do let us know what you think.  Perhaps we’ll make this a regular thing around here.

Disney Jumping Beans Planes: Fire & Rescue Savings at Kohl’s

I participated in an Ambassador campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s.  Opinions, as always, are my own.

For the past two weeks, the kids have been enjoying a bit of summer camp.  I’m glad that they are having a fun camp experience with friends but also look forward to having them back with me next week.  I’ve been sending my little guy off each morning in his swimsuit – returning to me in the clothes that I tucked into his backpack.  Recently, at pick-up, the first words out of his mouth were “look mama a sports shirt!” as he proudly pointed to the soccer ball on his T-shirt.

I only like shirts with things on them”  he’s since declared.  His budding interest in clothing – an official nod to his big-boyhood.

Since that time, I’ve only packed character or sports themed t-shirts into his camp bag as he generally shuns my more subdued selections.  Naturally he’s all over the new Kohl’s and Disney Jumping Beans Planes Fire & Recuse collection.  As part of the Ambassador program, I shared details on the collection last month.

Dinsey Planes ClothesWe were lucky enough to be invited to an early screening of the Planes: Fire & Rescue movie thanks to Disney.  Unfortunately, scheduling didn’t work out (Shh, don’t tell my kiddos!) – but we will definitely catch the movie soon as it’s officially in theaters today, Friday, July 18th.
