My eight year old and I are always looking for ways to spend time together. She is very cognizant of activities and things that we can do in the home that are eco-friendly and gentle on the planet. As a matter of fact, both of my children make me aware of how “not green” I am from time to time. Of course, I grew up living in a world that was okay with paper plates, plastic cups and utensils, and throwing away everything in one trashcan was normal. Thanks to them, I think about the things I am doing before I do them—is this a green way to dispose of this item? Is there an alternative that is more eco-friendly and safer for the environment?

On February 17th, my daughter turned 8 years old. I can’t believe that she is already 8 years old—it seemed like it was just yesterday that I swaddled her in her baby blanket. And now she is a 2nd grader.
My daughter wanted to have her birthday shindig at Build-A-Bear Workshop, so she invited a few of her friends to celebrate with her. Build-A-Bear is one of her favorite places and I thought the idea of her making new furry friends with her friends was something she would always remember.
The kids made bears, they laughed, they played, and they created memories. And as I watched the kids mix and mingle and enjoy themselves, it made me thankful for having such a wonderful daughter. She has been such a blessing to me and to our family!
