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!!!

Easter is coming up right around the corner and I absolutely love these decorative egg tattoos and plan on doing them with my boys for Easter. We traditionally have just colored eggs but when I saw this idea I loved it! I’m sure some of the tattoos may end up on the wall or on me, but I guess that’s part of the … Keep Reading!!!

Did you know that 70-80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra? Many of them don’t even realize it! With all of the changes that go on in a mothers body, you can pretty much bet that that percentage increases when a woman becomes pregnant or is nursing a child. Even if a mother did wear the correct size pre-pregnancy, by the time her baby arrives, her size has … Keep Reading!!!
Have you heard of Tree Change Dolls? The project initially started as a hobby for Sonia Singh of Australia, and soon became much bigger than her family had ever imagined.
Signh, a trained scientist, uses second-hand dolls and gives them a completely makeover/under. Since most the dolls she uses happen to be Bratz dolls, much of the praise Signh has garnered comes from the revelation that these hypersexualized children’s dolls are not only aesthetically more pleasing to the eye, but … Keep Reading!!!

I paid for my flight to Ghana in 2006 by selling my old diamonds. My situation was somewhat unique and during the process it was not easy to figure out if I was getting a fair amount for what I was selling. I visited several different places and did a lot of research and still walked away unsure about how honest people were being with me.
In my case, the diamonds were from jewelry that I … Keep Reading!!!
