Just five more minutes, Mom

As mentioned before, when it comes to mornings, I am awake and ready to go. This ability served me well in middle school and high school when I was responsible for getting myself awake, dressed and to school (via the bus or my own two feet) on time. I set my own alarm and I…

Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

So on my Facebook page there have been a few requests for a recipe that we made a few nights back. Not wanting to deprive anyone of one of the best soups I have decided to add it to the recipe archives. This is not a family recipe on either side. Oddly enough we got it from our local health and wellness center but it doesn’t seem to be on the especially healthy side.

Broccoli-Cheese…

What Does it Mean to be Brave?

What Does it Mean to be Brave?

I don't listen to the radio very often. But I did the other day. So it was the first time I heard this song. I almost switched the station, but the first line caught me, then the rest took me by storm and left me in…

Planning Ahead, Birthday Edition

Trying to plan a birthday party with 3 kids running around is rough. Today, I am sharing my planning methods that help me to be stress free and enjoy the planning process!

 My daughter is turning 5 this December. I plan birthday parties months ahead of time because I get everything  done without worrying about spending too much all at once, not finding certain decorations or anything I need at our local stores, making sure I order what I need with enough time to get here and send back…

Thankful.

Days like today make me so thankful.

This morning, Ricky played while mommy was productive. We went for a bike ride, had lunch on the deck and played in the sandbox. We went to the park and for a long walk with our friends. And now he’s napping – and I can work again.

I am so blessed to be able to spend so much of my time with him. That I can work from home and still take care of him at the same time – not every day, but some days. That I can feel fulfilled in my career AND as…

Rag Wreaths

I was taught how to make homemade rag wreaths late one night by an amazing young woman. She had gotten so good at making these wreaths that she could have turned it into a business if she had wanted to.

A spontaneous trip to Hobby Lobby (the best craft store ever) led to the purchase of wreath forms. She promised that the wreaths would turn out better with a wreath form instead of the old wire hanger I had tried to use when teaching myself. I also learned that I had been making my…

Contribution of Bananas in our Diet

The moment we think of bananas, the first three things that come to our mind are carb, fat and calories. But our body does need some calories, fat and carbs for general survival and well-being. Banana has some amazing nutritional facts, which are essential for…

The Surrogates by Consuella Harris

A brilliantly intriguing story.

The subject of surrogacy raises various emotions and views in people, depending, I suspect, on such factors as, their sex, religious viewpoint and life…

Toddler Life: What Goes on in MY House Every Morning

Before I was married with a toddler, there are certain things that I really never pictured myself saying. In fact, if my former self would have heard some of the things that go on in my house just between the hours of 5:30 AM and 7:30 AM, I probably wouldn’t have believed that this would be my life in a few years.

Does this happen at your house? Here are some of my faves:

Please don’t eat the lotion. Ricky! Don’t eat the lotion! 

For some reason, my child…

Homework Habits & Study Tips

An education is the most important tool we can give our children. It builds character, enhances confidence and paves the way for a successful career. Although a lot of teaching is done in the classroom, home is the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. This year, teach your child homework habits and study tips that will stay with them throughout their education. 

1. Choose a designated study area. Setting aside a quiet place for homework and study time…

How are you sleeping?

It’s 2 a.m., you’ve finally dozed off, and have peacefully drifted into the land of a clean house and well behaved children (Let me clarify...this is in your dreams). All of a sudden, something arouses you to a conscious state. You lie there with your eyes still closed and assess the situation (we’re moms and intuitive dads...we can…

Book Review: Little Elliot, Big City

A couple of weeks ago, Macmillan Kids send little Ricky a fun new book to read: Little Elliot, Big City. I really didn’t know much about it until we got it – and it’s actually really cute!

Little Elliot is a stuffed elephant living in the middle of New York City. He leads a quiet little life amid the hustle and bustle of the streets, where he feels too little…

Stay Motivated, Stay Healthy!

More often than not, we make excuses for not following a Health routine and postponing health related activities for “tomorrow.” “I have back to back meeting today so I will not exercise today, will do so tomorrow.” “I am starving and this crispy fried chicken…

Teaching My Son How To Drive

If you are as ambitious as I am about the future of your children, you've probably already made a high school and even an university plan, a full-day schedule filled with elaborated activities and lots of goals for your little ones to achieve.

Although this kind of parenting can be partly questionable, statistics show the more teens are engaged in the…

Quad Screen-BigM

Up until this point my pregnancy with Big M had been perfectly normal. We were already going to get baby checked out for heart defects because of family history. The provider emphasized that the specialist would want the blood screening done and we would have to get it done sooner or later.

Believing that the test was necessary we opted for sooner. At the next appointment our lives changed. We got the news that our baby had tested positive for Down Syndrome. Since we were…

Losing a Baby Means Losing Part of Your Life – But Also Gaining a Lot More

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. Thinking about how losing my sweet baby girl has affected our life. I’ve come to believe – or rather, know – that when you lose a child, you actually lose a lot more than that.

Obviously, the biggest and most hurtful piece of what we’ve been through is losing our baby. There’s no getting around that. If May wouldn’t have happened, we would have a week old baby at home right now. But May DID happen, and there’s nothing I can do to change…

Life At Home with 3 Minions

The golden question I am always asked when people see me walking around the stores with my kids is How do you do it? In my post today, i’ll answer that question and many others I get.

When it comes to being a stay-at-home mom, of course I get the dirty looks because I am considered “lazy” for not having a…

Taking care of Mom and Dad

My son likes to remind me that he is my only child. He'll snuggle in my arms and say, "you are just my mommy - no one else has you for a mommy but me." It's possessive and sweet and it comes with a lot of responsibility that he doesn't understand yet.



Being a single child, he will fee lots of pressures in…
