We've all agreed that we've got something special between us. And what is even more magical is that there is something … [Read more...]

  Confession time. My six year old son Malone loves his toddler scooter- it is way to little for him and he's limited by the design of it (three wheel style). But never the less, he still loves it. I've tried in the past to encourage him to move past his first scooter, but haven't had any luck. He's had plenty of opportunity to test out other scooters owned by his friends.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Stride Rite for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. One of the most nerve wracking and exciting things about having a child is watching them grow up.

226 views

One of the biggest and most important purchases a parent makes is their car seat. When I was pregnant with my first born, Malone, I spent a lot of time researching car seats. I found myself a little overwhelmed by the process.
