how to stick with it... 6 Jul 2017

How to Stick With It / Oh Joy

Currently, I'm in the middle of trying to instill new habits and hobbies in my house—teaching my littlest to use the potty, showing my oldest that sticking to a new hobby (like tennis) takes patience, and I'm really trying to get better at making more recipes at home. It can be so easy to just let any new teaching moment pass by, but consistency is key. So, along with my friends at BAND-AID Brand, I wanted to share a few tips I've learned that might help you to stick with it through challenges big and small...

happy long weekend!30 Jun 2017

July 4th Nails / Oh Joy

This year, July 4th falls on a Tuesday which feels odd because most people are taking Monday off and having an extra long weekend. Even yesterday, so many people. Are you guys taking off work Monday? Our office here will be closed through Tuesday so the team can get some extra down time and so that I can focus on potty training my 2.5 year old ;P

Oh, and our Oh Joy Diaper Drive is still going strong! If you're interested in donating, every case of diapers purchased enters you in a raffle to win a one hour consulting session with me. We are up to almost 200 cases (that's 15,000 diapers!) of diapers donated so far for babies in need. If we can get to 500, I'll raffle off TWO sessions as a thank you and an increased chance of winning. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated already!

Have a great, long weekend...we'll see you back here on Wednesday!

My Favorite Things to Do with Kids in Los Angeles...29 Jun 2017

Bob Baker Marionette Theater / Los Angeles

I love Los Angeles so much. There is so much to do here and see year round...and I've certainly discovered more things to do after having kids. We get emails and messages asking for suggestions on what to do with kids when visiting Los Angeles, so here are some of my favorites in no particular order. Please keep in mind, I do live on the East side, so this is skewed towards the East side of the city. A West sider might have additional suggestions and if you do, please share them in the comments!
