Real Simple. Admit it, you’re dying to rip out half the pages when the pedicurist turns her head, stuff them in your bag and sneak them home with you. Or maybe you actually have? So of course the Cool Mom Picks staff was thrilled to discover Real Simple now has a special issue that focuses just on families. Real Simple Family, as you can imagine, features hoards of wonderful articles, how-to columns, and simple solutions for families of all kinds. It’s hard to highlight only a few, but standouts include "Little Dipper" combo recipes to help get picky eaters over the new food hump; a comprehensive guide to family-friendly vacation ideas; and ingenious activity kits to keep kids entertained while they’re traveling, eating out, or stuck at home with the malady of the week.We’re not sure if there’s a better mani-pedi read than
This is the kind of magazine where every single page is going to end up dog-eared. In other words, get thee to a newsstand and get your hands on a copy.
And if you love it, make sure to let them know. If only because we’ll be incredibly bummed if they don’t come out with a follow-up next summer.
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
