August is not only the month that most children return to school, but it is also unofficially National Toddler Month. So it seemed appropriate to blog on something related to toddlers this month. Toddlers are defined as children between the ages of one to three. This is my favorite age group. They are those magical creatures that find awe in everything! Everything is new and exciting to them. They are working on figuring out how to assert their independence, but also want to know that they…Continue

What items do I need to pack in my hospital bag when preparing to have a baby? Most new moms tend to over pack their own hospital bag and most of the items that they take with them are safely tucked away in their bag and are not used. Most of the time the hospital will supply your basic supplies such as soap, lotion,…Continue

I am definitely having one of those days where just one cup of coffee just won’t do! Having two kids two and under has its challenges and its blessings. I am still in the process of teaching my toddler how to be gentle with his sister. Its almost like he loves her TOO MUCH! Its a good thing, but I am still teaching him boundaries with his baby sister so that he doesn’t hurt her! …Continue

Do you know what your kids are doing for summer fun? Have you heard them talking about food challenges? Have they mentioned the chubby bunny game, the choking game, or burns? If you have heard them talking about any of these activities, they may be involved in potentially dangerous activities or know someone else who is involved in risky behaviors.
The activities listed in this blog can be an issue year-round, however the risk to children and teens during the summer months is…Continue

I realized something yesterday while at a cookout for a friend.
Something pretty big!
Something awesomely amazing! Yes, I realize that probably isn't grammatically correct. Hush! It expresses how I feel!
The realization, epiphany, understanding that I came to…
Someone recently asked me how I got to where I am at this point in my weight loss journey.
This question led me to start thinking, "What have I done?"
No, seriously! WHAT HAVE I DONE?
I'm losing my sanity over here!! Okay, this post has nothing to do with my kids...Sanity can come back for a few minutes at…

I just recently read an article from the New York Times, written by Jill Salzman called ‘Proud to Be a Mompreneur’. In her article she talks about the stigma around the word ‘Mompreneur’.
If you don’t know the definition of Mompreneur it is:
**A multi-tasking woman who can balance both the…Continue

Having two children myself, I can safely say that no two children are exactly alike. In fact, mine are about as opposite as can be. My daughter loved pacifiers and was addicted to hers until age 3; my son had used a pacifier about 5 times total his first couple of weeks after birth and decided it was just not his cup of tea. My daughter was a very…Continue

One of the best ways to develop relationships and build confidence is to have fun together as a family. I just discovered there is a month long celebration aimed at that very thing, strengthening families and building healthy, confident kids. National Family Month is exactly what it sounds like, a celebration of family. It runs annually from Mother's Day to Father's Day.
An easy way to have fun with your kids is to remember what you enjoyed when you were their age and then do it…Continue

Parents/primary caregivers are the most important advocate for their children in all areas of their development, including social-emotional. May is Mental Health Awareness month. Children as young as newborns can have social-emotional issues. Research shows, behavior problems that surface in early childhood are the single best predictor for several long-term outcomes, such as adolescent delinquency, gang involvement, incarceration, substance abuse, divorce, unemployment (Center for…Continue

Mom’s aren’t supposed to get sick! I wish it was true but even germs and icky critters take us down for the count. Over the weekend, my husband finally convinced me to go see a doctor when I told him that I woke up around 4 AM on Saturday morning with a pounding headache. It wasn’t your typical headache,…Continue

I remember when I was pregnant with my very first baby in 1996 and on Mother’s Day that year, it dawned on me that I was going to be a mom later than year. I was excited, scared, and nervous at the same time. If you are a mom, I am sure that you can relate to all of those feelings. It is scary to think that you will be responsible for a tiny human being and that you have…Continue
