Shop Locally this Holiday Season

Today we talked with Julie Ritchie, owner of the Toy Box in Hanover, about shopping local. Jenn and I are both passionate about supporting the local economy buy shopping with local businesses. I think it’s amazing that Julie has never stepped foot in a Target. How does a mom live without Target? That’s another show we’ll have to call her for! Julie had lots of great recommendations for toys and games for the holidays, including Magna-Tiles. Stop in to The Toy Box in Hanover for more buying tips and 20% off one item when you mention Mommy Business this week! You can also visit Thanks again, Julie!!

No Show Today But Still Lots to Do!

No Mommy Business Radio today, but lots of “mommy business” to tend to. Hanukkah starts next weekend and Christmas is 24 days away! We’re getting our tree and decking the Halls! We get a real tree and I’m always so happy to head over to the American Legion in Braintree and browse the selection. Everyone there is always in the holiday spirit and it’s so fun to see all the families kicking off the holiday season with this tradition. I love that the trees they sell raise money to benefit children’s charities!

Holiday Season Must-Do List

We’re getting into the holiday spirit over here at Mommy Business! As we mentioned on air, Jenn and I have decided to make a holiday season must-do list with our families. Topping the Kaye’s list: Decorating the house, baking cookies, playing in the (much hoped-for) snow, and driving around to see lights. All while listening to holiday music, of course! Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock…..


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Mommies! I hope everyone is having a wonderful, relaxed day with their families.

Thanksgiving Prep

I hope everyone is trying our 15 Minute Challenge before Thanksgiving! It’s helping me clear out things we don’t need and keep the house (somewhat) in order before the holiday. And because I’m not dedicating a full morning (or day!) to cleaning the house, I’m a little more relaxed about prepping the food and packing for our trip to CT.  We’re making gluten free stuffing and carrot cake with brown sugar frosting.  Just the idea of that cake is making my mouth water!

The 15 Minute Challenge: Set your timer for 15 minutes and walk through your home, quickly picking up anything out of place. Pick a task to focus on, like dusting, picking up laundry and toys, or collecting things for donation!

Have a Happy, healthy Thanksgiving!
