  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

Fire Safety Activities for Kids

October 5, 2018

This is a post sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association and SparkySchoolhouse.org.

Growing up, the only fire safety I learn was walking out of the school when we had a drill.  We never talked about fire safety and education at home.  October is Fire Prevention Month and October 7-13 is Fire Prevention Week.  I’m happy to share some fun activities and videos to teach kids about fire safety from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).  The NFPA also has fire safety resources for parents and teachers.  Peyton is excited to share with you her favorite activity.

What elementary girl doesn’t love a cootie catcher aka fortune teller?   With my help, Peyton downloaded this activity from NFPA site for kids, Sparky.org.  She made a few more to give to her friends at school.  I was impressed with all the fun printables that Spark.org has to offer to help kids learn about fire safety and prevention. You can find more printables HERE.

This is the NFPA’s site Sparky.org for kids to learn on their level through activities, videos, and web-based games. There are printables for all ages and grade levels. Start with browsing the site with your child to see what they find most engaging. My personal fun and an informative game is Sparky’s Fun House.  It teaches kids to think about what they should do in the event of a fire like exits in the home and where to go once they are outside the home.  You can find that game HERE.

Harper can’t read but she enjoyed watching the videos and telling me what was going on.  I also printed out some coloring sheets for Harper that she can play with. You can find more games, videos, printables and more for all school-age children on Sparky.org. You can also download apps to your phone or tablets for the kids to watch and play.  Click HERE for more.

Sparky Schoolhouse is NFPA’s teacher portal for fire safety education.  This site has reading sorted by age group and interesting informative videos that teachers and parents can share with their children.  I thought the video on firefighting history was very interesting.  I learned that men used their beards to filter the fumes from fires and when the first woman became a firefighter.  I suggest teachers and parent check out this portal. Click HERE for more.

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, as a child we never had an escape plan at home.  Visiting National Fire Protection Association sites has made it easier for me to teach my kids fire safety.  I encourage you to visit Sparky.org with your children this Fire Prevention Month.  Click HERE to learn more.

Do you have a fire safety plan in your home?
