In An Exercise Rut? Try Something New

As human beings, we are definitely creatures of habit. We find a routine we are comfortable with, one that fits into our daily lives, and we happily stick to it. Oftentimes to the point where we don’t even realize we have fallen into a rut, and have become uninspired and unmotivated. Many people are afraid to try new things,…See More

The Stomach Flu With Kids Is Miserable AF

You’re just sitting down to watch a movie with your spouse, you’re getting ready to visit the in-laws at Christmas, or it’s the middle of the night, and you’re deep in a peaceful sleep. And suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, you find yourself thrust onto the…See More

Winter In Wisconsin: I Hate It And That's Okay

Winter in Wisconsin…what can I say? It sucks! I hate most everything about it! There is a brief moment following Thanksgiving where I envision a beautiful, white Christmas. But I guarantee you in that vision I am most certainly inside a warm house, sipping a hot beverage, simply admiring the view through a window. Because, of…See More

Holiday Stress: The Power Is In Your Hands

When I was growing up, the term holiday stress did not exist in my vocabulary. Christmas was fun, joyful, a time to see my entire family, (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents) and of course, get presents. And back then, it was easy to be with family during the holidays because everyone lived nearby.On Christmas Eve, we would go to…See More

Motherhood: Things I Wish I Had Been Told

There is nothing quite like being a parent for the first time. Holding your newborn baby, nuzzling your face into their tiny neck and inhaling their sweet smell. Gently rubbing your cheek against their skin and knowing you have never felt anything softer. Your heart simultaneously increasing in size and breaking into a…See More

Holiday Traditions: Creating Magic At Home

Holiday traditions can be a tricky thing for new families to tackle. Each person coming into a marriage with their own sentimental attachments to everything they did as a child during the holiday season. Thankfully, my husband and I grew up with pretty similar traditions, so it was never a big issue. And honestly for…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a busy mother of four crazy kiddos, 3 girls and one boy, ages 5-13. When I'm not frantically running around after my children, you can find me writing, swimming, biking, running, or eating everything in sight (hence the exercise). I enjoy helping other moms lead healthy, balanced lives through my blog.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I wish to connect with other mothers in an uplifting way. I hope to share the things I have learned through my years of raising four children and running a household alongside my husband.
I have been blogging since...

Chores: Skills To Last A Lifetime

Posted on January 25, 2017 at 8:30am 0 Comments

People often wonder why I decided to have children, or more specifically so many children. The answer is quite simple, so that one day I could relax while someone else took care of the house. I hated doing dishes as a child, and I wanted to pass that experience along to my own kids.

Just kidding! I simply felt…
