Welcome! I’m Marie.

I am so incredibly happy to welcome you to my little corner of the world. My mission is to help other busy mamas like myself. I love activities, outings and being a little extra in everything that I do. Hopefully I can give you some tips and tricks to maximize the fun times!

I have two babes, 2 years and six months, and I have been married to The Husband (I like to say that in a dragged out southern drawl, circle your head too).

Now to my real passion! I love my babies and I love activities of all kind. I was the Activity Coordinator in my previous life and have been a lifetime crafter. I sew, crochet, knit and I’m dangerous with a glue gun! So, this has translated into sensory play, Montessori moments and outings with my own kiddos. When my son was born I knew I wanted to focus on educational fun. I truly believe that every moment can teach us something and can be a good time. We do a monthly book review,
