Cayucos Beach is one of our faves for taking little kids to the beach because it has free parking, public bathrooms, an outside shower spout for rinsing off, lifeguard towers and …. it also has a playground right on the sand!
When a public relations firm contacted me about an opportunity to provide my readers with tips on how to get their kids into child modeling, I was intrigued. While my children aren’t professional models themselves (nor do they work for this company), it’s always been an industry I’ve been curious about.
And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.
I have next to no real experience with pet death. All the passings of my childhood pets were shielded from me in one way or another. Cats got lost and never came home. Maybe they lived happily chasing mice on a ranch somewhere (hopeful kid thoughts). Or my parents did the finding and the burying.
But with this death, it was right in front of my face.
#Momtruth: I was a worried these PicassoTiles toys designed for society’s littlest engineers might be too advanced for our 2 and 4 year old builders.

For more than a year, I’ve been trying to wrangle fitness back into my life. To, you know, stay sane. And, to shed some of this craziness that two babies in four years has done to my body.

The kind of exercise that gets my heart rate up, makes some of that endorphin magic happen and unplugs me from the daily mom scene for at least 30 minutes.

First, I gotta say thank you to Step2 for letting me test this Euro Edge Kitchen as part of the Step2 toy tester program.
Second, thank goodness for toy designers who really get what makes playtime fun because the kids loved this thing. We got it around Christmas time, and it kept their attention, had some engaging light-up features and lots of extra accessories including a smart phone toy and extra dishes … But, first, lets get to the important stuff — what was this giant play kitchen like in my living room?

I’m excited to announce that Two In Tow & On The Go is now featured monthly in PASO Magazine as a column!! You can now look for reviews on kid classes, parks and other adventures from us in the magazine’s print and online editions.
When San Luis Obispo resident and Beautycounter rep Lindsey Eckersley reached out to me with a collaboration opportunity to try the Super-Duper…
Beach days — I love them. I hate them. Overall, beach or not, I would say about half of our adventures go well. It’s totally my kids’ ages, though. Some adventures just aren’t fun with a 1 and 3 year old. Or part of the adventure is fun, but then the end goes so downhill it’s basically just a giant tumble and fall. Here’s my rant about taking the kids to the beach by myself. Keep reading if you want to read about a super embarrassing moment.
