snack hacks

I just had to get myself set up for success and here are two easy ways to help kids get not only a healthy snack, but also independently so!Grab + Go Snack Boxes. I have these in the pantry and also the fridge where they’re pre-portioned, bagged, and easy to spot. They can grab whatever snack looks good to them even if … Read more

DIY Personalized Notebook

DIY Notebook

You guys know how I feel about a good monogram or personalized piece. Naturally forcing that onto my kids with today’s SUPER easy DIY. You just need these stickers and your favorite notebook. I love these ones because they have no branding or writing on them anywhere and they wipe off which is cool! Notebooks get so grubby but I think these will hold up a bit better.Also for the record I brainstormed a short song lyric for this DIY for hours.  I could NOT think of one that was short enough and not cheesy. Sit Down Be Humble (Kendrick Lamar, … Read more

My middle guy Callum has a July birthday and I hesitated big time with whether or not to start him on time for Kindergarten (making him among the youngest in his class) or … Read more

Snyders & Snacks

We have a lot of snack times at our house. My growing boys are always hungry, and as long as they eat their breakfast, lunch and dinner, I’m perfectly fine having snack time in between. Growing up, my home was the one all the friends came to. My mom was involved in our lives, and was always so welcoming to everyone. She would feed us, and host every one so graciously. Ive always wanted to be just like that. We have become that house! And I am so happy! We constantly have friends over, it is exactly what I’ve always … Read more
