I'm a big supporter of small local businesses. As much as we can, my family & I patronize non-franchise restaurants. I have to admit, sometimes it can be difficult because franchise restaurants are often more affordable & the menu is familiar and reliable. Every once in a while, we encounter restaurants that make us just want to root for them, you know? The food is good, cost effective, & most importantly the people/service are friendly and welcoming. One such restaurant that has… Continue

I am new to blogging and upon discussing the content of my blog with a friend, they expressed their surprise that ‘someone so academic’ would be writing about a ‘soft’ subject like beauty. Now I wasn’t at all happy at this remark. Not only is it one of my passions and the topic that my whole blog is based on, but I also have numerous friends that are employed in the beauty industry in some way. I have friends who are professional makeup artists, beauty therapists, hairdressers and nail… Continue

Day 124, how quickly a day can turn... She woke up happy and chattering her new word. I got a gross open mouth kiss and snuggles (and head butts). Suddenly, she needed to be held and wanted to buck her body and kick me and be nursed all at the same time. The tears came and nothing could stop them. She's so rarely inconsolable... Of course, I should have known. Teething. I can see them trying to push through, both my girls are/were late teethers. Which means more strength to flail their bodies… Continue

When I only had Sadie, grocery shopping was a small challenge. After Sawyer came along, it became quite the feat. Seriously, how do you moms with 3+ kids get anything done?? Anyway, I just happened to be flipping through a magazine and saw an advertisement for this… Continue

Good Morning Everyone!
So - I took a little time off from blogging - nothing really important besides having a BABY!! So now my family has grown to 4 and hectic living is just putting it lightly.
I went on a hiatus because I was becoming overwhelmed with every aspect of life and my content was suffering because of it. I was trying to please too many people, including my readers, and I wasn't being "me".
And that is where "Simply Jaclyn" is born. I am simply me,… Continue

My son is six now, but I vividly remember the oh-so-brief period when he was a baby. He would sit on the floor with toys scattered all around him and either his Daddy or I would be on the floor nearby, watching him play and sometimes joining in to help him with his blocks or trucks. I never wondered if we were playing with our son in the "right" way or even if there was a "right" way to play with him.… Continue

This week's post is really a convergence of thoughts that have been coalescing in my brain lately. If you read this blog regularly (or follow my Facebook page) you know I am a big proponent of play-based education for young children (preschool age) and not pushing academics too soon. This attitude is based on a growing line of research that supports this… Continue

Have you ever handed your iPad or phone to your kid when he/she is fussy? What about when they are having a full-blown tantrum? I'm sure many of us have done this. It's probably not our proudest parenting moment, but it happens. Continue
What if this was a common (almost daily) occurrence in your family? What do you think the effect of this would have on your child? These are all questions that researchers are beginning to explore. The the rapid onset of tablets and…

I'm a lazy parent! At least where it counts. This realization was inspired by a friend's similar confession. That may seem like a really strange thing to say, but it's true. I try not to do for my children as much as possible. That means… Continue

I have asked myself what is it I am not getting into Action as a mom. We have so much going on in our life as a mom, taking care of the family. Sometimes we can be so overwhelmed that we do not stop to think of what is it we are not in action with our own life as a mom.
I have joined a new meditation and breathing group in the last two weeks and I am discovering something new every time. I came up with the name of the blog post ”… Continue

As I'm organizing & coordinating my family's schedule (which I tend to do every Monday morning, beginning of the month, or the end of an activity/goal reached), I'm in awe at how fast this year is progressing. It's May! So, I'm taking a moment to reflect. And always, always live in the moment!

So its time to be out and about with your baby and you’re wondering how to warm your baby’s bottle while on the go. Well i was in the same shoes when it came time to bring my baby out, so i went on a hunt to find a suitable bottle warmer that doesn’t require electricity or a car. Summer was on the horizon and i had planned on being out for…
