Summer Burnout

Summer is 12 weeks long for my kids. I am lucky to be home with them the entire summer. We have enjoyed lazy mornings lounging around and getting lots of snuggles in before going on daily adventures ... which...
Here in New Orleans, I know we can all appreciate a good referee, right? ((Too soon?)) If summertime with my two toddlers has taught me anything so far, it's that I'm basically just a glorified ref who also fetches snacks....
Over the last four years, my family of five has traveled over 10,000 miles on road trips in our Toyota Corolla. That’s over 166 hours total if you drive 60 mph (which isn’t always the case). Most of these...
With the wet week we are currently having, I’ve decided to compile a list of things you can do in New Orleans (and the surrounding areas) when it rains. Some of these are obvious choices BUT after asking our...
That look the other mom gave you at the birthday party. Finding out about a friend’s accomplishment on social media, versus hearing about it firsthand. Your child not being invited on a playdate lately. Life is full of uncertainties...

2019 Best NOLA Dad Finalists We received some incredible submissions for this year’s Best NOLA Dad campaign. It was a very tough task, and we really wish we could name everyone nominated Best NOLA Dad, but we were finally able...
1:4 is No Good Only one of my four children eat any and all vegetables that are put in front of them. In fact, she (my 5 year old), specifically requests salads and vegetables for meals and snacks. I have...
I've read all the posts about taking the kid-free trip and making time for you and your spouse. While deep down I knew that would be good, it never happened. In my child's six years of life, he has...
The kids are home for summer and that means a break from morning alarms, relaxed days, no homework, visits to playgrounds, all of the water activities, lots of fun and--if I’m being honest--lots of chaos (because I have 3...
