Back-To-School Berries and Yogurt Parfait Recipe

I enjoy packing lunches for my kids. It gives me the chance to surprise them with little things like lunchbox notes and smiley faces on their food! I'm always on the lookout for school lunch and snack ideas my kids will actually eat. This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon, Silk, & So Delicious.

PBS Kids Wild Kratts Wild Reptiles (DVD Review)

I knew my boys loved creepy, crawly, scaly, slithery things, but didn't realize their total obsession with reptiles until we watched PBS Kids Wild Kratts: Wild Reptiles. We took this DVD with us on a road trip, and they watched it --mesmerized-- over and over again. I mean that literally. The DVD finished and they asked me to play it again.
