Hey dolls, Happy Sunday. Wrapping up August with a revisit to an old post I thought was relevant since school has arrived once again. Summer can be disruptive to a bedtime flow because of the later Sunset and all the fun activities. Getting back into the swing of things can cause stress and anxiety.
Bedtime for kids can either be fun or full of drama.
You had a long day at work or you have spent your day home with the kid’s one task after another and when 7:30 rolls around all…Continue

A lovely evening of Pretty Little Liars watching with my Lil mama bought upon some great conversation and as I fell asleep last night this is what I thought of again. So I wanted to talk about it with you.
Here's is a BIG question...
Should I admit I don’ have all the answers? I don’t really know everything after all?
Would it be so terrible of me to actually “be human”?…Continue

Last Saturday my life changed.
No I did not get a promotion, we didn't move and Lord knows there is no pregnancy announcement coming.
Friends- we are getting new couches.
Those who know me already know that this is actually big news in our home. Those microfiber monsters have been a real point of contention in my marriage for years. You see when i was preggers with the twins I was a bit hormonally whacked and all over the place emotionally.…Continue

HISTORY DOESN’T DEFINE YOU. YOUR CHOICES DOES
Imagine that you stand on the edge of a platform at the swimming pool... Blindfolded!
You have no idea how high up the platform is, if it is the 1-meter, 5-meter or the 10-meter platform. You have no idea if there is water in…Continue

My daughter has always been scared of the water. She doesn't like the pool or beach at all, even fountains (I think the only water she likes is the water from the faucet when she's taking a bath). No matter how we tried to entertain her (give her a toy, show her how much we're enjoying it, etc.) while in it, she would always be anxious, would cling to me and fuss so our pool or beach time would always be a quick one.

*Originally posted in One Awesome Momma.
Yes, you read that right. I managed to get through my pregnancies without having to buy maternity clothes. And it's not because my belly was so small that I didn't even have to; I just didn't want to. Why? First, they're expensive; and second (at least for me), there's not much…Continue

Hey everyone, I am revisiting this post I did some time ago because I heard a disturbing story on the radio last week that touched on kids sleeping with their parent(s), specifically what age is too old for them to climb into bed with you.
I originally posted this back in 2013!
I ran into this article today and it peaked my interest with a topic I've thought about for a while.This article in the Stir about …

This is part of our kids journeys as they grow up but parents, let’s make things easier on ourselves. We need to learn to establish and…Continue

Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.
You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”
But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…Continue

Peace and Love on this Sunday morning.
It has been an extremely sad week for Humanity but is it really anything new? And the fact that I can so easily think that isn't that even sadder?

I knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.
But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!
Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.
This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…Continue

To the mom using foodstamps, I see you.
I see the fear in your eyes when someone gets in line behind you. You wonder if they’re judging your food choices, not knowing that the cupcakes you’re buying are for your son’s birthday. Last year your family had to buy his cake because you couldn’t afford it, you never want that hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach again. You felt like such a…
We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.
This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.
I don’t remember…Continue
My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…Continue

When we lived in a city, my kids went to the playground daily. In my stroller basket, you could always find the essentials: helmets, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and balls. Then we moved to the suburbs, a somewhat rural suburb, where we no longer walk to the park, and kids ride in cars and buses. Would our playground toys gather dust in our new home? Happily, minus the stroller, my city kids have stuck to their roots. And yes, our first big purchase for the house was…Continue
