Snack Pak 4 Kids Serving 3800 Children in the Texas Panhandle – Here’s How You Can Help

While working on a freelance writing project this week, I learned something that is kind of shocking to me. There are children at every school in Amarillo going hungry on the weekends. Every school. Even in the "upscale" neighborhoods. Even in your neighborhood. Sometimes, I am guilty of living in my happy little bubble of oblivion. This is one of those times. I literally had no idea. Certainly, I assumed this must be true at some of our schools. But ALL of them? My mind has been blown and my bubble burst.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Building a Strong Family Foundation

I'm going to come clean about something I take a lot of flak for. I feel like, because my position on this is somewhat different from that of most, people are quick to insert their unwanted views or try and win me over to their way of thinking.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Ancay ouyay eakspay igpay atlinay?

"Ancay ouyay eakspay igpay atlinay?" I asked my kids one morning this week after catching the tail end of a Phinneas and Ferb episode where they make up their own version of pig latin called "Ferb Latin." It gave me an idea...wouldn't it be hysterical if I first freaked my kids out by speaking only pig latin to them and then pretending nothing unusual was happening... and then, wouldn't it be funny if I actually taught them to speak it?

Mommy Blogger April B. – Fly Swappers

We bought some new fly swappers this week. The flies are maddening right now. Thus, the need for additional fly swappers. Seems my kids have a knack for swapping flies and they love to do it. More fly swappers were required to end the feuding over who gets to be the insect executioner.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Now I Understand Why My Parents Didn’t Buy Me the Fancy School Supplies

Now that August has arrived, it's back to back-to-school shopping. When I was a kid, it was all about having the coolest Trapper Keeper. The Trapper Keeper was the iPhone of the 80's preteen. It held folders and paper and it had a clipboard and you could even stuff photos inside the plastic cover. I vividly remember ogling the Lisa Frank designed Trapper Keepers and begging my mom to spend the $5 on one. I actually had this one.
