State Farm Assist

“I participated in an Influencer Activation for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” When  my 15 month old is hungry, she'll toddle up to me and ask for some "Mum". Her favorite snack is watermelon chunks and orange slivers. Most often we take for granted the easy availability of food in our kitchen, to feed our kids. There are children in my daughter's school for whom the … [Read more...]

Easy DIY Girl Scouts SWAPS Idea and Tutorial

Easy DIY Girl Scouts SWAPS Idea & Tutorial - MommySnippets (3)

Exchanging SWAPS is an age-old Girl Scouts tradition. (SWAPS stands for Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.)  My daughter needed to make 100 SWAPS for a Girl Scouts event this past weekend and while that doesn't seem much to seasoned Girl Scouts, I have to admit the thought of doing 100 SWAPS did have this novice Girl Scout Mom a little concerned. After a lot of Pinterest searching, craft box rummaging and … [Read more...]

Spring Allergies: Symptoms and Remedies {#SneezeFreeSpring}

Spring Allergies Symptoms and Remedies (1)

When we moved to our corner of Texas my oldest was 18 months old. Every few weeks or so she would come down with the sniffles or a dry cough.

Her ped. would run tests on her and prescribe medication for her to take till the sniffles or cough stopped. It was only when we switched pediatricians 2 years later that we realized we'd been subjecting our … [Read more...]
