As we were going through the grocery store something caught my children’s eye. Big giant orange marshmallows…….why do they always put those things in the center aisle display where everyone is sure to see them?

Help Your Kids Understand That It Is Okay To Be Different

Cinnamon Toast

I recently served my kids a dish for breakfast that they thought was wonderful. It was one of those times where they thought I was brilliant for thinking of such a wonderful breakfast.
