It seems to be one thing after another around our house, very fast paced and on the go. As February comes to an end, March break is coming up just around the corner and I think we are all due for it.

What I enjoy about March break besides the fact I don't have to get up and rush to get out the door and catch our daughters bus in the bitter cold of the early morning, is the time we spend together as a family. Not only is it March break but we have two birthdays that fall in that week every year, so it makes it all the more special - at least to us. 

We spend March break close to home, a "staycation" if you will. There are plenty of things between two birthday parties that can keep the kids entertained and allow us to spend time together at the same time. 

A family trip would be nice but we enjoy spending time off simply at home and out around our city.

The kids enjoy simple pleasures like baking treats together (daddy's birthday cake could be a good project this year!), playing make-believe, making crafts and getting outside to explore together - even if it's just in the back yard or going out for a walk. 

To me, March break more about how we do things and the times we spend together. Time goes by fast and the kids get bigger by the day, from time to time we need to take a moment to slow it down a pace and enjoy the smaller things. 




I am proud to be part of the #Kindermom/#MamanKinder team for a second time - we will definitely be sharing some Kinder® moments during our March break, it is after all a traditional March break treat! ;-)

  1. We love Kinder! What a great contest too. Little One gets a Kinder egg once a week when we go to the grocery store as a treat if she's done something exceptionally good (like used the potty by herself, helped clean up or played well with friends).

  6. Our March Breaks are always laid back and at home as well and I'm okay with that. It's a welcome break from waking up early to bring the kids to school.
