8 great ways to keep kids from whining ‘Are we there yet?’ on summer vacation

SO excited for summer vacay but dreading the chorus of "are we there yet?" coming from the backseat?

This morning on TODAY with Kathie Lee & Hoda, I shared eight really great ways to keep kids occupied on your way to and from those awesome vacation spots. Whether you're taking a cross-country road trip, traveling to see the grandparents, or jet setting far far away from home, these are some great boredom busters for all ages.

Check out the video below for my eight tips, and share your own in the comments on this post!

TONIGHT: I'm on Watch What Happens Live!

Ready for a BIG REVEAL?

I'm guest bartending on Watch What Happens Live TONIGHT!

I've been keeping it a bit of a secret cause I didn't want to jinx it. Seriously don't want to ruin something like this.

Make sure to tune in at 11/10 CST!

Thanks to the wonderful Megan DeSales Colarossi for helping make this dream come true.

And stayed tuned. Tomorrow I'll be sharing my cocktail recipes right here on the good ol' blog.


Four ways to stop "adulting" so hard

When was the last time you allowed yourself to be fully overcome with playfulness?

I’m talking about the kind of overcome that stops time, squashes your adult ego, has you forgetting that you even own a phone that proclaims to be so smart and has your inner 8-year-old jumping for utter joy.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Most of us grown-ups don’t often enough turn off the notifications and “to-do’s” for a beat and make time for full-on frivolity.

In my latest column for Chicago Parent, I shared four tips from my book, Well Played, that will help you put that serious adult stuff aside and reap the rewards of a life well played.

You can check out the full column and tips over at ChicagoParent.com.

And after that, you can grab your own copy of Well Played right here.

( PS. A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to my friends at Chicago Parent for this super fun moment of play caught in time. Thanks for featuring Tru and I on the cover this month, and showing that both tweens and parents aren't too cool or too old to play! )
