This weekend I have a fun giveaway for you from Target:  our picks for back-to-school essentials!

Last week I reported on our family”s back-to-school shopping trip.  You might recall there was a noticeable difference between what mom considers an essential for back-to-school and what the kids believe is essential.  Perhaps it is that way in your home, too?

Hooray!  I’ve got a great giveaway today for those of you who are looking to start cloth diapering, or to get back onto the cloth diapering fluffy bottomed bandwagon.

Written by Kara Fleck, Simple Kids editor and Rockin’ Granola mama.

Today is my birthday.  I”m celebrating 39 trips around the sun and I”m thankful for every single one, even the ones that left me with a few more wrinkles and white hair.
