A family command center is a great way to help your family stay organized and keep everyone on the same page. In my home, our command center is the brain of our family. Need to know where someone is? Check the command center. What groceries do we need? Check the command center. What’s for dinner tonight? Check. The. Command. Center. I update our family command center, which is located at our fridge, every week. Having the essentials on hand helps me to get everyone organized and know what’s going on with everyone at a quick glance. These essentials from Pinhole Press are must-haves for every family command center.

Nowadays, what isn’t there to get your children? From little plastic figurines in hatchable shells (I’m lookin’ at you Hatchimals) to interactive apps with endless in-game purchases, there seems to be something for everything. And while there are plenty of fun and enjoyable toys out there, within a few months they seem to become old news to your ever-growing kids.
When our firstborn turned two, rather than accumulate more stuff, we asked guests to bring a book in lieu of gifts. We collected a handful of new and used titles that we then donated to the Ready Readers program in our community. This book-giving birthday tradition has continued and it doesn’t diminish how special birthdays feel; in fact, I’d say it enhances the experience for all involved. Here’s why: books keep giving.
Birthdays are great. I mean, everybody has one, and they’re an ideal opportunity to celebrate the lives of the people we care about most. (While gorging on cake and ice cream, obviously.) But if you’re restricted to a college budget like myself, coming up with a meaningful and cost-effective gift idea can be both a headache and a hassle.
Youth sport coaches volunteer months of their time to help the children of the community become more active, learn to work as a team and improve their knowledge of the sport. Each year, children are eager to participate in their new favorite sport. And often times, some of the best family moments are created throughout these seasons.
