By: Kris Berry My sons, Blackbeard and Captain Hook, are obsessed with pirates. They make their little sister walk the plank when she’s done something naughty. They bring their foam swords everywhere (even to bed). I’m not allowed to call them by their real names, only “Blackbeard” and “Captain Hook.” They have already asked that … More Ahoy, Mateys!
By: Kris Berry It’s August and that means that my favorite fruit is ready to be picked. Sure, I’ve never met a fruit I don’t like but my absolute favorite is blueberries. There’s just something about those little guys that I love so much. Plus they are so darn good for you, it’s hard not … More Blueberries!
By: Kris Berry I’m having an affair. I wake up early in the morning before anyone else in my house, sneak out of bed, pull on a skirt and a tank top and slip quietly out of the house. I leave my husband alone with the three children in the evenings to feed them dinner … More Why I Run . . .
By: Kris Berry When my husband and I found out we were expecting twins our initial financial plans went flying out the window.

It seems like the days just whiz by and I don’t even notice. So if you are like me, you have … More Eeek, It’s Almost Father’s Day!
By: Kris Berry The other day my kids were taking a bath when they started to paint the walls with soap and bubbles. I had the idea to make them some “paint” they could use instead. It was really simple to make, smelled great, and clean-up was a breeze. What you need: Shaving cream*, food … More Good Clean Fun
By: Kris Berry There are days when I’m disappointed in who I am as a parent. I raise my voice more than I’d like. I fret over my messy house. I get upset over silly things or lose my patience too easily. I’m really trying hard to not take myself so seriously as a parent. … More Sometimes You Just Have To Laugh
By: Kris Berry The Lil’ Red Wagon is coming to Lantana’s in Randolph April 29-30th! If you haven’t already heard about the sale let me be the first to tell you how great it is!

By: Kris Berry It’s been a long winter here in the Berry house (as I’m sure it’s been in your house too). It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of the winter. I don’t like to drive in the snow. I don’t own a pair of snow boots or snow pants. I don’t even … More Cabin Fever!
By Kris Berry I’m Kris, wife of a superhero and a stay-at-home mom to three kids. If you watched our introduction videos you likely heard (or saw) my kids yelling in the background! I have 3 year old identical twin boys and an almost-18 month old daughter. I’ve been a full time stay-at-home mom since … More Never A Dull Moment
