Secondhand Spring

I love spring for so many reasons – first and foremost being the commencement of nearly nine gorgeous months of running outside. Heaven. On. Earth. Another reason I love spring? SPRING CLEANING! Now, if you’ve been following my blog via The Animal Kingdom website, you may have already picked up on some of my Type-A personality traits, and my OCD-style thoughts on cleaning. Since spring is a season of renewal, I love nothing more than to spruce up the house, do some gardening, and get rid of things that are simply taking up space around our house.

Real Mom Review: Sophie & Lili Doll Collection

I’m sure most veteran parents and caretakers can agree – life with a toddler is gloriously m-e-s-s-y. So when I learned that we would be bringing home a new friend who is unique, bold, soft, huggable, AND easily washable, I was over the moon.

With a little preparation and a few slices of home, disaster can be averted and the season can be filled with joy.

Cookie Love

I'm constantly trying to sneak nutritious treats into their Green Eats Snack Bowls. We have our favorite quick bites, the standard grapes, apples, carrot sticks, cheddar cheese, but these snacks don't really cut it for the after school set. 

Instead, I rely on a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies that my boys love. The ingredients made me very skeptical and hopeful. If I could infuse cookies with extra protein, load them full of chocolate chips, and have the kids inhale them? A huge win for mom, but who on earth eats cookies made from chickpeas. I mean, really?

Welcome!

Hi there, and welcome! 

We are excited for the official launch of The Animal Kingdom's blog. 

We think having kids is pretty cool and hope to share that sentiment with you through quality real-life discussions about parenting, food, travel, creativity, learning, product reviews and more. We consider this to be a family lifestyle blog.
