Back-To-School Shopping? Nailed it!

Back to school shopping

It’s a brutally hot weekend. School is starting soon. What a perfect time to go BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOPPING with my daughter, who loves to shop as much as I do.

Anyone with an energetic little artist like my daughter knows all too well that perfectly styled outfits come home covered in paint, glitter, glue, and pastels. And of course she’s a second-grader going on teenager, growing too fast.  I’m frankly tired of spending a fortune on clothes only for her to quickly ruin or grow out of them.

So this year I decided to check out Kmart for its affordable prices on back-to-school basics.  My daughter, the little fashionista that she is, tends to be rather picky. But that wasn’t a problem with this shopping trip! She raced around the store, pulling out dresses, skirts, and pants – screaming “this is super cute!”- I knew we came to the right place.

“Giddy” is the only way to describe us as she modeled her many fun new outfits.  And it was nice not having to check every price tag or worry about telling her something she wanted was ridiculously expensive.  At the end of our shopping spree, when it was time to go home, she said “Do I have to wear the outfit I had on when we came in?  It seems so plain.”

Back-to-school shopping? Nailed it!

However, all things are possible if you set your mind to them. Those that prioritize their fitness nearly...

by The Next Family March 25, 2016

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
