Rainy Day Activities With Kids on #Fox29 Philly

Looking for rainy day with kids’ ideas? Check out Joey Fortman on Fox 29 Philadelphia! Ohhhhh if you really knew what goes on OFF camera.  Seriously?  I die every time.  Especially when I have my kids with me. Live TV is the best thing in the world.  Remind me to tell you about the time my then four-year-old peed his pants on the exact same station. Or maybe… the time when he ate gold plated Oreos and went to school with a gold tooth.  Oh—but this one.  Orrrrrrrr the time…

Why Every Mom Needs a Vacation

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I honestly can’t even believe I’m typing this right now.  I mean, seriously who on EARTH doesn’t KNOW already—THEY NEED A VACATION? If you don’t think you need a break sister, sit your butt down and hear another mother tell you how and WHY. It’s minutes from back-to-school in my house. I know. I’m late to the #BTS game since I was other-mothered already on Instagram with every mom and their back to school plans already.  Never fear – Under Armour hooked us up…
