Did you know you can help your kids’ schools with what’s in your pantry and products you use every day?  Recently, I learned about Campbell’s Labels for Education, and when I checked the website, I found all 3 of my kids’ schools were signed up.

All I have to do is just snip off the UPC labels for so many things I regularly purchase or already had at home, send them to school, and let the points add up so our schools could get things they needed. You can even track your school’s progress and see their wishlist online!

After School Snacks at your Door with #NatureBoxSnacks


Do your kids come home famished after a long day at school? Mine always do. They can’t wait for after school snacks. Then, they stand at the fridge or the pantry searching for something to eat. Usually I hear, “Mom, there’s nothing to eat.” Which is totally not true. I think I’ve found something they actually like! Recently, we got to try NatureBox Snacks, and it was a big hit.

NatureBox Snacks Review | The TipToe Fairy #NatureBoxSnacks #CleverGirls #afterschoolsnacks #backtoschool

One thing I’ve figured out is to limit their choices, so I set a few things on the island or the kitchen table, and they easily pick something and settle down for a snack.  So, when the NatureBox snacks arrived, I just opened the box and left it on the table.  As soon as they all got home, they rummaged through the box and each found a snack.  I didn’t hear “there’s nothing to eat” one time that day!

When you join NatureBox, you’ll receive five different snacks every month. You can choose the snacks you want or be surprised with their carefully curated selections.  I let my kids choose the snacks.  Check out the huge variety HERE. (more…)

Southern Buttermilk Fried Okra

Fried okra is one of those special treats that I usually get when we go out to eat. It’s a comfort food I’ve loved since I childhood. I’ve always been a bit picky when it comes to fried okra. You can definitely tell if it’s made fresh from scratch or frozen.  There is nothing better than freshly made fried okra, especially if it’s been dipped in buttermilk.

I’ve always been a bit scared to make it from scratch myself, but I decided it was now or never. I jumped in with both feet and even made up my own recipe, and I was so happy it came out perfect! The outside was golden and crispy and the inside was melt in your mouth delicious.  The kids and Nate were clamoring to eat it while it was still blistering hot from coming out of the oil. Crazy people! (more…)

Shot@Life: 10 Tips for Helping Kids Cope with Shots

It’s officially Back to School in our house. Today my older two went off on their first days of school. My oldest daughter is in 10th grade and my son is entering 5th grade. My preschooler starts school next week. Part of getting ready to go back to school is making sure the kids’ immunizations are all up to date. One place I like to do this for my kids is Walgreens.

Walgreens offers school age children, ages 7 and up, quick and easy school immunizations like whooping cough and meningitis. Sometimes it’s easier to just walk into Walgreens without an appointment to get it done instead of planning a trip to the pediatrician. (more…)

6 Tips for Light Bladder Leakage Tips with Poise

Thank you to Poise for sponsoring this post and keeping me confident!

Today, ladies, I’m going to talk about something that happens to all of us – Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). It’s one of those little secrets we all have, especially after having babies. I’ve had three babies, but even after the first one I developed this problem.

Light Bladder Leakage with Poise Microliners | The TipToe Fairy #sp #LBL #poise

It happened every time I coughed or sneezed or laughed. It’s really bad during allergy seasons and when I’m sick with a cold. I get really good at crossing my legs, but many times I’d end up needing to change my underwear. When my allergies flare up and I’m coughing and sneezing a lot, I’ve even resorted to using menstrual pads, but they are so bulky and uncomfortable. And, when it happens in public I get so self conscious about possible odor from this problem. (more…)
