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.

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.

I had a big to-do list for 2018. Most items on my list were your typical stuff like get in shape, wake up earlier, be more productive, but some items on my list are for my security and peace of mind. One of these items was to sign up for life insurance. It’s always something that’s been on my mind; especially as a stay at home mom.  I want my family to feel secure and protected and life insurance is one more step in making that possible.

Guest post written by: Julia from The Quiet Grove

Recently we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City, Kansas and let me tell you it was an amazing experience for the whole family! My kids were so excited when they were each given their own fluffy wolf ears when we checked in. Of course, they had to put them right on and start howling like little wolf cubs as we made our way to our room and got settled for our stay.

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!
