A couple months ago our kids decided to share a room. Since it was our daughter’s room for so long all the décor was chosen by her and we’ve been trying to find something to add to the room that could include our son. Minted.com offered so many beautiful wall art prints it was hard to narrow it down but in the end we went with an 11X14 print of Rules to Live By with a beautiful Distressed Charcoal Stain … Keep Reading!!!
Here at IANtB we love our children…most of the time. Every parent at some point in time has experienced frustration with their kids and one of my biggest frustrations seems to come out when I combine electronic devices and little ones. It’s a love/hate relationship. There’s no better invention than a tablet with some educational children’s apps for long road trips and visits to the doctor’s office or grocery store. At the same time, my little girl broke a cell … Keep Reading!!!
As parents, we are confronted every single day with dirty, sticky hands on our children. The thing is, as annoying as those sticky hands can be when they leave purple popsicle stains on your new shirt, they are rarely the cause of coughs, runny noses, fevers and colds. It’s the unseen germs that our kids pick up on their hands at daycare, school, the park, the bathroom and other places that are dangerous. The world is filled with germs and … Keep Reading!!!
Buying a mattress can be a huge pain. For starters, a lot of mattress stores have salespeople that work off of commission and you never know if the price they’re selling you is really the lowest price (it’s probably not). Nothing against the salespeople as they have a right to make a living, but it can make it a stressful process when you’re SUPPOSED to be buying something that helps you DE-stress. There are a lot of online stores that … Keep Reading!!!
Our family loves to travel, but there is no physical way we can take our children to all of the wonderful countries in the world to learn about their culture, food and people. That is why we started doing a monthly country study as part of our homeschooling program. This has proven to be our children’s favorite lessons throughout the month and, of course, their favorite part of the study is often when we try authentic native cuisine from the … Keep Reading!!!
May kicks off road trip season for our family and many others. Schools are about to let out for the summer and the weather is starting to get warm and stay warm across the country. Since it is Mother’s Day, we start out from So Cal and drive up to the Bay Area to visit family. However, it wasn’t too long ago that I was making this trip with my own parents and doing the exact trip in reverse with … Keep Reading!!!

If you don’t like music, please stop reading now. Also, if you don’t like music, please go back to swimming in circles because you must be a goldfish.
As a parent of two young kids, I sometimes have to remember that my kids probably won’t be the next Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning or Carrie Underwood. No matter how much I decide to push them, the reality is that my wife and I want them to find things that they love, … Keep Reading!!!
I know some of you are superstars in the laundry room, and for that, I am quite jealous.
You woo me with not only ability to distinguish between delicate cycle and permanent press, but also your ironing board prowess.
(This is probably genius, but I don’t understand how they plan on fitting that surfboard into their refrigerator…)
And you, oh domesticated one, are the one who I am talking to in this post today.

Hello everyone! I just joined the Staff here at I Am Not The Babysitter, and other than the Starbucks post last week, most of you don’t know me. Therefore I should introduce myself! I think the best way to do so, is just to copy/paste my bio from the Staff page. Cause I’m lazy. So here goes… I’m Ginger.
Ginger is our resident non-crunchy member of Staff. She uses conventional products and she and her family eat non-organic food. Ginger … Keep Reading!!!
We wanted to discuss our personal experiences over the last couple of months with Cuddleroo. Our first flash giveaway was in Maui at Wailea beach. It was so fun to meet other moms and see their reactions when we opened up all the the Cuddleroo carrier covers. There were people on the beach who weren’t even part of the the meet-up, that joined our group just to learn about the carrier covers they were seeing. We ended up … Keep Reading!!!
I imagine that my soul is a lemon being squeezed into my own eye during tax season. I wait like a criminal to get back a Dickensian portion of the wealth that I have bestowed unto the government from my larger Ikea purchases. I am impoverished from the people with the spinning signs with offices next to the Cash 4 Gold locales.
It’s just a reality for most of us. Taxes are part of life and it’s a wonderful mind-game … Keep Reading!!!
