In honor of Mother's Day I'd like to list my top mommy-moments (so far):
1. The birth of both my kids.....incredibly different since one was full term and one was at 27 weeks...but they both rank right up there as a couple of the most beautiful moments in my life.
2. Savannah's first smile
3. Tucker's first round of stitches...and then second round 10 days later!
4. The fact that Tucker (4yo) still wants to "snuggle up" first thing in the morning

Just so we're straight- I'm not the one on the potty.
Baby Lug is.
As I type this I’m potty training Baby Lug, whose just turned 3.
Thank goodness I have a ton of Easter Candy to dole out for each time he uses the toilet. Otherwise I'd be in big… Continue

I thought that maybe on this Toddler Tuesday, I would travel off the beaten path of cute baby pics and
videos, to bring you a few tips regarding making your own baby food at
home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I
would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard
how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food
really is. Also, I…

Hosted on Mommy Living the Life of Riley!
In true Easter fashion, I am writing a product review for the PAAS All-In-One Fun Easter Egg Decorating Kit. My daughter, Riley, is 17 months old and so basically, this is her first "true" Easter. My
husband and I decided to let her have a little fun decorating her own
eggs this year and of course, the name…

Yesterday, a funny thing finally occurred to me…my baby is officially past the baby stage! It is a melancholy realization for me because I think all parents hang on Continue
in some form or fashion, to that tiny, precious, helpless little
creature that you helped bring into this world. I know that, to me,
part of my daughter Riley will always be that little baby, no matter how
old she gets. But, where do you actually draw the line between a baby
and a toddler? Some…

The theme of today’s blog hop is ANSWERED PRAYERS, and I definitely have many in my life to be thankful for. Actually, my entire life is comprised of answered Continue
prayers. First and foremost, I was blessed with being a pretty
intelligent woman. This led me to become the first college graduate in
my family and college is where I was lucky enough to meet my future
husband, Michael. He is such a gift to me that I could write the rest
of this blog solely on how…

After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue

On the hottest day of the summer thus far, with fires raging a few miles away, the sky is raining soot. Since we are nearing the end of the summer, and I have been in lock down with Thing One and Thing Two, while trying to work in my cave of privacy, it seems we are all at wits end. I have run out of tasks for them to do, they are sick of sweeping the floors, writing letters to Santa, and scrubbing the bath tub. So they have taken to fisticuffs. Though playful, someone always gets hurt. Not… Continue

Or is it just me they didn't tell?
Having kids physically hurt! I hear you laughing. I am not talking about the burning stinging pain of giving birth, I am talking about what follows after the birth.
Jeez, since having 2 children I haven't had a pain free day:
- My feet request that I wear shoes or slippers (with hard soles) at all times when walking around the house. They are fed up of the excruciating pain caused by all these tiny toys parts scattered around… Continue

With summer on its way and the kids outside in full force, the dreaded battle of wearing sun protection arises yet again. I don’t know about yours, but my three-and-a-half year old refuses to wear a hat. It’s a constant battle that escalates into a full on tug-of-war every time we venture outside. I have tried every style of head covering, every color and every option, only to have them lost, left and… Continue

Post 4 in a series of 4
Okay, I'm a day or two late finishing this series, but I'm also striving to raise two toddlers to be the best that they can be, so work with me here.
Both of our children are true "Spirited Children". We have our 3 year old spirited introvert, and our 2 year old spirited extrovert.
"The Spirited Child" is a term I have heard used so loosely, and I have used loosely, many times. It's always been in the context of "he/she's spirited" to… Continue
