Drive-Thru Kindness Challenge

100 Acts of Kindness Drive-Thru Challenge


I am so excited to be joining several of my blogging friends for the 100 Acts of Kindness Challenge, hosted by Toddler Approved and Coffee Cups and Crayons!


We decided to promote acts of kindness to strangers in the drive-thru by paying for the person behind us and leaving one of these sweet printable hearts with the cashier to give.  Since I am a very regular patron at our local Sonic, we tried it out.  Little Brother and I were both giddy with our drive-thru kindness challenge as we quickly pulled out of the Sonic parking lot after paying for the big truck behind us!

Print out the hearts with kindness quotes.



Cut out the heart printables.




Have your child help you write a personal note on the back, if you choose.




Keep the kindness hearts in your car until the next time you go through a drive-thru (Sonic, Starbucks, McDonald’s, etc).




When it is your turn to pay, pay for the person behind you as well and ask the cashier to give them one of the kindness hearts.  :)




Take a picture and use the hashtags #drivethruchallenge and #100actsofkindness on Instagram or Twitter.

Mini Yogurt Parfaits (using Baby Food Jars and Yulu Yogurt)


  Having a baby in the house means that we have a boatload of baby food jars (especially being the third child, I have totally failed at my homemade-baby-food-making plans).  Rather than throwing them in the recycling bin, we decided to repurpose them to make a kid-sized family favorite:  mini yogurt parfaits using Yulu yogurt!   Yulu is a brand-new Aussie-style yogurt that we … [ Keep reading… ]

How do Arctic Animals Stay Warm in Icy Water?

   Winter is always a fun time to talk about arctic animals.  I absolutely loved this idea from Discover and Learn Preschool for exploring how arctic animals stay warm in icy water!  Animals like walruses, seals, and polar bears all have a thick layer of fat, called blubber, that keeps them warm in the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic.  And polar bears have black skin underneath two … [ Keep reading… ]

Thinking You are Failing as a Mom Might Be the Best Thing To Ever Happen To You

Thinking you are failing as a mom might be the best thing to ever happen to you

  Early in our marriage, my husband frequently claimed that one of the reasons he married me was because he knew I would be a wonderful mother.  I would just laugh and lovingly punch him in the shoulder...but deep down inside (even though I would never admit it to him or anyone else), I agreed.  I was so confident that I would be a wonderful mother when God blessed us with children.  How … [ Keep reading… ] Baby Registry


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. Having a baby is the most momentous moment of your life.  In the blink of an eye, you suddenly desire to put the needs of another person ahead of your own.  Forget sleeping or eating at a reasonable time, a newborn turns your world upside down with a blissful sense of selflessness that you wouldn't trade … [ Keep reading… ]
