We kick off most mornings with a dance party. It might sound crazy, but when you’re as sleep-deprived as this mama, you’ll try anything—and a good old-fashioned DP seems to do the trick for our cranky crew.
My seven-month-old baby girl doesn’t sleep through the night yet (fingers crossed!) and my almost three-year-old boy wakes up, like, way too early, and desperate times call for desperate measures… So, yeah, let there be coffee and sunrise dancing!
We’ve got to get the energy flowing, our bodies moving, and our minds working, and the musical stylings of Taylor Swift and/or Bruno Mars never seem to fail us.
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more
Kids in the Kitchen: Mini Banana Waffle Pies With Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce
School has started back for many (us included!), and today's Kid's in the Kitchen recipe makes for a perfect breakfast or after-school snack. We made ours for an after-school snack the other day and my second grader loved it. We call this recipe Mini Banana Waffle Pies With ...read more
The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
I’m a bit of a teeny-bopper (minus the teen part), and some of my favorite albums to share with the kids have come from KIDZ Bop. They recently released KIDZ BOP 29, and I, er, I mean my kids couldn’t be more excited! The album includes summer’s hottest hits like “Sugar,” “GDFR”, and “I Want You to Know.”
I’ve upped the ante on our AM dance parties with the help of KIDZ BOP and Spotify, a music streaming service that’s available for use on computers, tablets, and mobile devices. Spotify allows you to easily create and curate hundreds of playlists to coordinate with every possible mood or occasion. (We have a sleepy-time playlist and a kids’ pool party playlist too!) You can follow your fave artists and stay informed on the latest songs and albums too. You can even share playlists with friends and family (because, yeah, I’m a grownup who hearts KIDZ BOP and I’m not ashamed!) Spotify’s streaming service is free, but premium members enjoy unlimited skips, offline streaming, and ad-free listening—which the little ones definitely appreciate—because when it’s time to dance, it’s time to dance—even if it is 6 AM.
One lucky fan of The Shopping Mama will win a copy KIDZ BOP 29 + one 12 month subscription to Spotify Premium. Enter via rafflecopter below and don’t forget to leave a comment on this post to validate your entry.
