Cell Phone Alternative for Kids, the Gizmo Gadget Watch from Verizon

 

When it comes to my kids and tech I am very conservative so it should come as no surprise that I do not want my kids to have their own cell phones. My kids all have Kindles or access to them and they are very tech savvy, but I severely limit how much time they spend and what they see and do.  We have a big family and we have a very involved and active family so that means I can not be with all my kids all the time. My oldest who is in 5th grade often gets rides with other people or stays after school for practices. Because she is now spending more and more time away from us relying on other adults we felt the need to have a way for her to get a hold of us in an emergency. I always double check with other adults to make sure she won’t get left somewhere by accident but things happen and I don’t ever want her to feel stuck with no way to communicate. Continue Reading

Filling My House with Music

 

I grew up with music, always lots and lots of music. Some of my favorite memories are full of music so naturally my house is full of music. If music isn’t playing in one room then someone is singing or playing the piano in another or they have headphones on. I want my kids to grow up in a house filled with music and we are making that a reality.

What’s a childhood without impromptu dance parties and lots and lots of sing-a-longs? Continue Reading

Jabra Sport Pace – A Runners Best Friend

My husband is a runner.

About 5 years ago he took control of his health and began running on a daily basis. Music is important to my husband so having a great set of earbuds that is well suited for running is important to him because while he runs daily the truth is he does not enjoy it. He does enjoy music though so he must have great earbuds to deliver uninterrupted music for his runs. The Jabra Sport Pace was made with runners in mind.  These earbuds are super easy to pair, just like all Jabra products, and they offer a great fit for activity. The Jabra Sport Pace comes with 3 earbud options and you can tighten the cord around your head to make it a snug fit. That is something I have come to love about this brand, the bluetooth pairing is so easy even I can do it and you can be assured of a great fit.

So why are the Jabra Sport Pace better than other earbuds on the market?

This post is written in partnership with Verizon, all opinions are my own.

I have been active all my life, I grew up in a family that valued sports and fitness and I want my girls to feel the same way. I want them to see exercise as a fun lifestyle choice not a burden or a chore. This past weekend I participated in my first run/walk event the Daisy Dash. This event is for mothers and daughters and sponsored by American Girl and Verizon Moto Z. I took my oldest two girls and we had a fabulous time. We laughed and we talked as we walked our 1.5 miles in the 90 degree heat. It was wonderful to spend that time with them, being active and just bonding.
