My kids' safety is my top priority like It is with all parents, but what does “keeping your kids safe” even mean anymore? Our world is a whole lot more complicated than just making sure they don’t run out into the road. With technology, it has become even harder to keep kids completely safe from anything that could harm them. As parents, we have to think way beyond just their physical safety. Keeping kids safe is a tough job and almost a full time one at that.

“The romance capital of the world”. Most dream of going to Paris with their significant other, but have you thought about taking the kids? I always recommend Paris with kids and usually people are quite surprised to hear that it is a very family friendly destination. Paris has so much to offer kids and families and it’s a shame not to take kids to such a wonderful city.

BusyKid - chores and allowance simplified with one AMAZING app!

This summer I started to get really tired of our old chore charts. We write everything down on a paper or clip board, but it never quite gets tracked like it should and I always have a kid telling me later about how they completed a chore when I don’t think they did. It was definitely time to shake things up at our house and I just knew there had to be a better way. I searched around for a better chore chart system and found BusyKid. My kids one complaint was that neither their dad or myself had cash on hand to pay for the chores they had finished. I would joke with my daughter “Do you take a credit card?” she didn’t appreciate that very much. I needed a way for their chore money to just come out of my checking account automatically without any hassle.

If you are around my age you probably will remember on road trips just staring out the window for entertainment. Sure I had a coloring book and occasionally my mom would even play a game of tick-tac-toe with me, but in car entertainment was definitely limited compared to today’s standards. I honestly don’t know how my parents did it. I am always making sure my kids have plenty of entertainment just so I don’t want to pull my hair out by the end of the trip. How many times can you hear “Are we there yet?”

Building Healthy Habits With Gululu!

With so many tasks during the day, it can be hard as a parent to keep up with everything. Before you know it you forgot to remind the kids to brush their teeth or maybe it slipped your mind to sign their school field trip form. Parenting is hard and that’s why I use every tool at my disposal to help out. Most days I need at least two more pairs of hands so that’s where these tools come in handy. One of these tools is the amazing Gululu smart water bottle. I have a hard enough time managing my own water intake throughout the day; I don’t have the time to manage the little munchkins too.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
