I get it. You’re bored in the house and you’re in the house bored (that’s a TikTok you gotta watch btw), so here are five North County summer outings to do with your littles while still social distancing.
Big news …
We’re moving from California to Washington!! I’m equal parts sad, nervous and excited for this new adventure.
I don’t know how to put into words what SLO County means to me. If you know me at all, you know it’s more than just a place.
Who’s at the point in quarantine where they’re over scouring the internet for kid activities and reassurance right now? I mean, can someone just send it to us already? Like, maybe directly to our phones? Please and thank you. Well, luckily now someone has. That’s why I’m happy to share our experience with Bright by Text, a free nonprofit program that hands out tools and tips to families with kiddos prenatal to age 8 via text messaging. We’ve been using the service for about a week, and we wanted to share our experience with it to help more people during social distancing and the Covid-19 crisis.
It’s time to pamper, relax and sip – because here’s our Mother’s Day Gift Roundup from our friends at BabbleBoxx. In fact, they’re encouraging families to celebrate Mother’s Day all month long (no complaints here!).
Either way, it’s time to pamper, relax and sip – because here’s our Mother’s Day Gift Roundup!
Now that you know my story about how I ended up here, I want to share something with you that I’ve been writing, deleting and re-writing again.
I intended to present this blog from my role as a writer. But over the years, something else happened entirely. People saw me instead. For so long, I was programmed to be the journalist – the objective observer. But now, with this blog, you guys saw that it’s just me here. Even before I saw it myself.
So I’m stepping into my story now, because, this time, it’s my story to tell.
Do you have one day that changed everything for you? I did. A lot of you know that for many years, I was a newspaper reporter and now I’m not. Here’s why.
Lowes invited us to show some LOVE for the frontline this weekend by staying home and taking part in the nationwide Lowes #BuildThanks for Frontline Heroes Project. The idea is to craft homemade thank-you signs for your windows, doors and yards so essential workers can see them from the street to make their commute to and from work a little brighter.
My friend Trish Juarez of Paso Robles is the coordinator for one of the two major mask-making efforts happening right now in SLO County during the Covid-19 pandemic. And they need your help.
We got out of the house today for a nature walk (solo, around the neighborhood) in a new collab with the SLO-based The Wisdom Wonder Project. This company offers easy to follow, home-based learning curriculums for kiddos. (And to think I had partnered with them before all this Covid-19 quarantine crazy went down.) Read on to learn how we incorporated a simple story in Aesop’s Fables into a nature walk. And how you can, too.
COVID-19. Quarantine. Being stuck inside your house with kids. Worry. Sickness. That on top of all the other mom stuff. It’s been a hard week, friends.
It’s times like these that we can use all the friends we can get.
Enter: SocialMama, an app that launched last year for moms looking for mom friends in their city and beyond.
