The bedtime routine is a battleground. There is the reluctance to get it started, the whining during each step and a six-year-old's attempted negotiations that have to get shut down. After years of this, we are getting somewhat closer to the stage of acceptance and I know that one day, I can send him off to do his nightly…Continue

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

My son and I have a deal to help him get through his school morning routine: If my little bear completes his tasks early (dressed, teeth and hair brushed) then he is allowed to play on his iPad. This gives me enough time to make his lunch and do my hair and make-up.…Continue

As of today, I am very lucky with my son's bedtime routine. He and I snuggle up in his bed and read books together (he reads me one and I read him three). Then there are hugs and kisses and then the light goes off. He very rarely leaves the bedroom.…Continue

It took me about 4 weeks to settle into a night time routine with Oliver. However, since we started, it has been FANTASTIC! I wish that we had started our bedtime routine much earlier. I don't think it is ever too early to start. Before I share what we do at night, a quick disclaimer: I DO NOT stick to this every night... We are human! There are nights that just don't go as planned. I am ok with having off nights, but we try to do our routine whenever…Continue
I asked for - and received - a fitbit for Christmas. I thought it would make me move more throughout my day. And maybe it does. But what it has really done has made me obsessed with my sleep.
Every morning, I sync over my data and look at my sleep efficiency. I stare at the magenta areas: What is waking me…

Frustrated was an understatement.
A-man needs these diapers due to sensitivity to disposables but the smell was unbearable.
When I started cloth diapers I read up how to wash the them.
Some people would say use bleach, don't use bleach, use only…Continue

Over the last several weeks, I have noticed that my youngest son doesn’t like to go to bed at night. I am not sure if he is scared of the dark, terrified to be alone, dealing with separation anxiety, if he is just going through a phase where he wants to be independent, or he is afraid of “monsters” hiding under his bed or in his closet. Every night we go through the same exact routine, my youngest son will throw a fit and he will tell me that he doesn’t want to go to bed. Each night we…Continue

Pregnancy weight is a touchy subject for many new mother’s. No matter how much you gain soon after your baby is born most mom’s are ready to get the extra weight off. Many mother’s typically lose a small amount of weight after having their baby. However, I often hear mom’s talk about losing the baby weight a few weeks after they have given birth. Rapid weight…Continue

For those of you who don’t know, my parents have owned a hairstyling studio for almost 30 years now and it has been one of the most fun parts of my ‘girly’ life. Growing up, I was able to experiment with hair color, styles, beauty products and more! A girls dream, right? I’ve had some of the best…Continue
