Q & A with Renae

"My son is having the same issue but he is only 3 1/2 years old. He has been potty trained for almost a year and has never had an accident. Well, we brought our baby girl home in Feb. and that's when it started. We understand why he is having them but it is becoming very frustrating. We have been patient and have started to remind him to go potty....

When Your Big Kid has a Potty Accident

The other day, my 5 year old daughter, Shari did something she hasn't done in well over two years. She wet her pants. While it really surprised me, I knew that it was important to handle it delicately. She is at a point now that things like this have the real potential to shame and embarrass her.

Easter Egg Bingo!

This year, Easter falls on April 20. I love Easter! It's one of my favorite holidays. There's so much fun stuff to do and egg hunts are just a small part of it all. Those cheap plastic eggs have other uses too. For instance, you can use them to play Easter Egg Bingo.

Losing Weight When you have a Sweet Tooth

Well, three months after New Years Resolutions have been made, I'm betting that I'm not the only one who has been struggling with their 'losing weight/getting healthier' goal. I think the hardest part of any diet is just getting started.

Taco Chop

I feel like it's been a really long time since I've shared a recipe with you all. The 'Taco Chop' is something that my husband came up with one day when he was playing around with making dinner. It was delicious and I knew you all would love to try something new also!

Money Savvy Soccer Ball

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
I am a big fan of teaching kids about money while they are still young. Once they are older, it can be much more difficult to instill the value of saving in them. My son, Alex, is 8 years old right now and the perfect age for teaching him how to save his money.


The Money Savvy Soccer Ball is perfect for this and the fact that my husband and son are soccer fans doesn't hurt either! Upon taking the ball out of the box, you see that it has four money slots. One is labeled "Save," another is labeled "Invest," another "Donate," and the last "Spend."

Using this soccer bank, it is easy to help children set financial goals and it lets them actually watch their money grow. I would suggest sitting down and talking with your child about how they will divide their money when they receive it. Will they put half into savings and spend half? Or will they invest a quarter, save a quarter, donate and spend a quarter? It is easier to put into practice if there is a plan beforehand!

One thing that helps with the saving are the goal stickers that come with the ball. Kids can either choose one of the pre-printed goals, or they can choose their own! It helps them keep their goal in mind when they are having a tough time saving money (it's hard for adults, just imagine how hard that delayed-gratification would be for kids!)

If your child isn't into soccer, Money Savvy also carries football banks, piggy banks and even a cow bank!

If you are as excited about teaching your child about money as I am, then today is your lucky day! Money Savvy is giving one lucky reader their very own Soccer bank! Simply use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.
