My son is a product of preschool. My husband and I both work and our parents are either too far away or they also work and were not able to watch him for us. So, off to school he went. It was crazy expensive, but the costs of him going outweighed the cost of me quitting my job. And, thankfully, he loved it. In preschool he learned most of what his teacher is covering now in Kindergarten.…Continue

Ways to manage the pain often include Lamaze, water therapy, epidural, hypnosis, etc. I opted for hypnosis when this little lady graced us with her presence.…

Meanwhile they're oblivious to the fact that we're actually watching their every move. After all, for a semi helicopter mom like me, who used to…Continue

Father's Day is a special time every year that we can celebrate that wonderful father figure in our lives, whether connected by blood or love. Make the day extra special by planning a fun activity to do together. Even better- a FREE activity. With so many options to choose from, we wanted to help out by providing 12 free activities for Dad on Father's Day. Choose one or more!
lly and I wanted to do something special for Daddy, just to show him how much we love him. We sat down to brainstorm a couple ideas of what to do and finally settled on making a collage for Daddy. The collage would contain things that he really enjoys and something that describes him. Although our Daddy is one who likes to wrestle and roll around on the floor, he also really enjoys dressing up and looking nice!
Check out our finished picture and see how you can make one…Continue

I have heard from so many moms lately about how stressed and worn out they all are. One of them would be me. We can all relate to the ever popular, “If only there was one more hour to the day” and the, “I just can’t get it all done” slogans.
Most days we feel like we are drowning. Some days we get thrown a life preserver, some days we just don’t have it in us to fight anymore, and other days we have the strength to get our head above water and actually swim to…Continue

I'm still new to this whole Mother's Day thing (I've only celebrated one), but so far I'm a big fan of it. And I know it's a few years off, but I'm excited for the days when Hollis will bring maccaroni art and adorable scribbled cards home from school for Mother's Day. I still remember making those things for my mom and feeling pretty solid that my handmade creation was the greatest gift ever, and I'm sure my mom felt the same way. Since Mother's Day is only a few weeks away, I…Continue
Back in 1952, Ohio’s Cuyahoga River caught fire and caused $1.5 million in damage to Cleveland. The city’s industrial revolution had taken its toll with the oil and debris clogging the river and igniting on a regular basis. When the river went up in flames yet again in 1968, the situation gained national attention. The Cuyahoga became a poster child for early environmentalists.…Continue

Today was the big day. We finally had our Valentine's Day Party! As usual, things don't always go as planned, but it all worked out for the best. I planned on having a lot of games, prizes and music, but with the popcorn snack boxes and a house full of mostly boys, I had a feeling it wouldn't be all frills.…Continue
