A FEW THOUGHTS ON TWO

It’s hard to believe our twins are already two. I have been eagerly watching them grow and hit developmental milestones, yet the graduation from baby to toddler is paired with feelings of sadness and worry. My babies are grown and it’s happening fast. Just as it did with Thomas. Days…

Let Them Be Little

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.

As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…

Family Traditions: Happy Birthday George Washington

This past weekend we visited one of our favorite historical parks, Washington's Crossing, to celebrate General George Washington's 284th birthday. This is the second year we visited the park for the event and, luckily, it wasn't 18 degrees with snow and ice covered grounds this time around (although the snow did make… Continue

He's Here! He's Here!

Sorry for my absence, but I've been buried in tiny diapers, toddler tantrums, and baby snuggles for the last week. Our little guy arrived last Tuesday morning at 9:31am and life has been whizzing by ever since!

0216161513a-1

This is Bowen James and he is 7lbs 1oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. I don't want to say he is the perfect baby, because I know it will bite me in the butt later, but he kind of is. He's the sleepiest, hungriest, cuddliest little babe and he is the perfect addition…

Breast Is More Than Best – It’s A Life Saver

The term "Breast is best" is tossed around often, and most people take that to mean that nutritionally, breastmilk is better than formula. But it goes so much further than that! How much further? How does “fewer infections, increased intelligence, probable protection against overweight and diabetes, and…

Whole Wheat Cheeseburger Pie

This recipe is an old favorite in the Betty Crocker Cookbook. My family and I have loved this for years. It was one of the first dinners that I made for my new husband, almost 8 years ago, and we have been cooking it at least once a month ever since. In the last year or so, I have been really trying to make my food a bit more “clean” and unprocessed. What I have changed about good ole Betty Crocker is making homemade whole wheat baking mix. You can find the recipe at …

HE JUST CALLED HER WHAT??

As mothers we all know that the feeling we get the first time our child says "Mama" is pretty close to being on top of the world.  I mean... I don't know what being on top of the world feels like but I'm sure it's pretty much the same thing.  What about the first time your STEP child calls you "Mama".  GASP!! 

It could have been accidental.  You…

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, officially the last day of gluttony before we Christians  traditionally opt for a more ascetic lifestyle during the season of Lent, a period of forty days beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Easter Sunday symbolizing the forth days Christ spent fasting and in pray before starting his ministry.

Favorite Make-Ahead Meals

For once, our freezer is stocked. I still feel like it's not enough, but I have no room for anymore stuff, so I guess it will have to do! I've been making a few extra meals each week for the last few weeks to stock up on meals for when the baby comes. I've learned that anytime I make a casserole, to just make two of them and freeze the other one. It really doesn't take anymore time and saves me from cooking a meal on another day. It's so handy that I will continue to do it from now on to…

Mother Knows Needs Best

Do you have a child with special needs?  Does your family think it's a good idea to tell you what you're doing wrong?  

My son is four years old and has been fighting a rare allergic inflammatory disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis.  Yeah, I still can't say it.  Although he has had this from birth, we didn't recieve a diagnosis until Hugh was 16 months old when they found a penny sized ulcer inside his tiny tummy.  One of the largest ulcers ever seen in a child that small.  That…

Meal Planning for Dummies

I used to think that meal planning was for type A crazies with WAY too much time on their hands. I mean, who has the time or energy to think more than a day or two ahead about food, let alone a week or a month! But deciding on dinner has always stressed me out. Pulling something out of the freezer in the morning left my family with a very boring revolving door of baked BBQ chicken, baked shake-and-bake chicken, or (here’s where we get exciting…) spaghetti. Or I would tell my husband to pick…
