We can’t believe we’ve already completed a year as ambassadors for Together Counts! Together Counts is all about achieving an Energy Balance with you families, spending quality time together while staying active and eating as healthily as we can.

what i didn’t expect when i was expecting

We are currently attending Alt Summit (recap of our dinner party with Munchkin to come soon!) and figured this is the perfect day to call upon our favorite mamas with blogs and businesses that we admire from across the web.

Munchkin is one of those brands that we see every time we walk the aisles of Target, but didn’t realize just how innovative they are until we checked out all their products all at once. It’s such an impressive collection. We were happy to be able to incorporate them into our own bedtime routines and share how it all goes down with you today! First up, Nicole! Bedtime at our house is like anyone else’s, bananas. One saving grace however is … Read more
