Karli, a Sesame Street character in foster care

Did anyone hear about this? So great to see some representation of non-traditional home life on TV. Hopefully, this will open up some dialogue and help to remove some of the stigmas associated with kids in the foster care system. Yay Sesame Street! 🙌🏼 https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/05/20/entertainment/sesame-street-karli-foster-care/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.ca%2F

Tips on re-homing a pet

Our poor cat has really struggled with anxiety since our daughter was born last year. Ultimately, we’ve decided that the kindest thing we can do for our kitty is to find a new, child-free home for her where she can get the attention she needs!

Eco-friendly gift wrap ideas?

I recently learned that any gift wrap that is shiny or has decorative foil on it isn’t recyclable! So I’m looking for some creative materials I can use to wrap gifts and reduce waste this year. Newspaper is always a classic, but can be a little dirty. Any ideas? 💡

“Please spit that out!”

Ok parents, let’s have some fun. What phrase do you find yourself saying way too often lately? I never thought I’d spend my days saying “please, don’t lick the toilet” but alas, here we are. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Have you checked out your kid’s apps?
