Now this post is less about the kiddos and more about Mommy & Daddy.
I've always been interested in "personality characteristics" and why people act the way they do. I think it sometimes has to do with how they were raised and a big part is how they are wired. Nature vs Nurture. Voila!
Hubs and I did the …Continue

For the first few years of motherhood, it's natural to find yourself so immersed in the daily routine of rearing children, that you might start to miss your old self. It's easy to get into a rut - but so important to continue to grow as a person, outside of being a mom! How do you focus on personal growth? Here are a few tips.
And, since I spend…

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.

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 …

Hello, dear ones! Please join me for a word study on motherhood. Even if you are not a mother, you can use what you learn in other relationships. You are an example to the children in your life, whether that is a niece/ nephew, or kids in the youth group at your church. Also, I encourage all Godly women to find…Continue

Shopping with kids is zero percent fun guys...
We spend a lot of time and money at Target. We live about one minute from our local Target, it's a SUPER Target and it opens before 9 am. It is where us early bird suburban moms hang. The morning employees at our local Target basically know us by name. If we don't visit three times a week they get kind of nervous and wonder what is up. I don't like to worry them.
So today we had already been to McDonalds, the park and…Continue

I’ve decided to try something new. This will be a way for me to talk about my favorite and least favorite things at the end of every month. I’ll share a recipe, give a review, and discuss what I am most looking forward to in the next month.
Favorites of July
Naturebox – We have been a NatureBox subscriber for some time now and it’s probably our favorite delivery service. We typically buy the not-so-good-for-you snacks and this is a great way to try…Continue

“Don’t compare your insides to someone else’s outside.” I first heard this quote years ago, well before the rise of social media. Now, more than ever, it speaks volumes to me.
As far back as middle school, and possibly even elementary school, I remember girls comparing themselves to one another. It didn’t stop there. Girls judged: on looks, on clothes, on choices of friends, on anything and everything. It’s so much a part of…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?

Think about a typical day out with your family. Think of all the places that you may go and all the strangers that may overhear the way your family interacts.
Do you feel judged?…

Summertime is almost here, Finally! The children are almost free from long days at school and are most likely ready to rip and run. Before piling the kids in the car and heading out for fun park adventures be sure to read over these park safety tips. Each year over 200,000 children…Continue

Have you ever handed your iPad or phone to your kid when he/she is fussy? What about when they are having a full-blown tantrum? I'm sure many of us have done this. It's probably not our proudest parenting moment, but it happens.
What if this was a common (almost daily) occurrence in your family? What do you think the effect of this would have on your child? These are all questions that researchers are beginning to explore. The the rapid onset of tablets and…

I woke up Sunday as if it were any other day, in a whirr of excitement to get ready for church. For some reason I’m just not a morning person, so I wake up with just enough time to shower, get little E ready after he eats and head out the door.
While waiting for church to start, I was talking with Trevor and his sister. She started talking about how her smart phone is so distracting. She’s constantly looking at it and was even thinking of switching to a flip phone.

It is every parent's worst nightmare to lose a child. I remember being angry at myself for even letting the thought cross my mind. It was unimaginable. Luckily this didn't happen to people like us so I had nothing to worry about...until I did. By the time I let myself believe it was a possible outcome that night, it already was the outcome. He was too far gone. No longer did I…Continue

Feeling guilty when you are parent is something that seems to become second nature. You just can't help yourself! Very often it's the little things that will rack you with guilt, sometimes (but rarely) it might be something big. This 'big'…Continue
