Warning, some post may cause extreme laughter, falling onto the floor and spilling your mommy juice, so hold on to your glasses. I was contemplating cleaning house today, you know, just practicing some good house -keeping. And then, well, this happened instead. I said, "Contemplating" I never said that I got started. While I was in my own little world, which consist of unicorns and glasses of wine, I began to think about all the women, moms and stay at home moms, who may share these…Continue

After Juliet was a newborn I got her and Lincoln on the same schedule. My kids wake up the same time (thanks to Lincoln), eat at the same time for the most part, and go to bed the same time. With Juliet still being under one. She naps whenever she wants during the day and will eat in-between meals. Getting them on the same schedule is one of the best things you can do for yourself as a mom to keep you sane and make you feel a…Continue

Are you a mom who wishes she had more mom friends? I was too, until I found mom.life – an app just for moms. I was feeling pretty lonely as my husband works long, tiring hours about an hour away. I was pregnant when I first found this app. It used to be known as Preggie, but with a new app design came a new name - and so was born Mom.Life.
I really had nobody to really talk to as a mom. I didn’t…Continue

What is wrong with my kids is a question I ask myself at least 10 times a day! Anyone here with me? Don’t lie! I don’t mean it in a bad way, of course not, I love my kids to the moon and back; more then anything. That question is more generally speaking because there really is no answer when it comes to this one!
There is nothing wrong with them, they are just normal, fun-loving, and BIG personality kids that I have created BUT is it really too much to ask that they learn no…Continue

After dinner one night, we were looking through some photos and videos of when our son was a one-year-old. Looking back at that age felt like a giant oxymoron: It seemed like forever ago; it seemed like it was only yesterday. I was marveling at how much he has grown up and how much fun he is now when I was struck by the thought about how much easier our life has become.…Continue
