A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store. I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw. I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…Continue

Michael Gabriel Raphael is a devoted husband and father, enjoying a peaceful and fulfilling life. Then one day, one moment later, he is thrown into an abyss of frustration, torture, and suffering the likes of which is very hard to fathom.…Continue

I had a life changing moment recently. I've written a book been featured on major news outlets like the Business Insider, Wall Street Journal and more. I've been very blessed. I coach an amazing group of women who want to make money with their blog and they are writing books and doing great.
But in spite of all those accomplishments nothing filled my heart as much as the though of helping this young boy. I was a volunteer recently at an event and this was my experience.

My baby is showing the signs that he is getting close to being ready to potty train. A few weeks ago, he started telling when he has a soiled diaper. He says, “I poop” when he soils his diaper. He hasn’t quite figured out the difference between urinating and pooping. I am excited and nervous at the same…Continue

This week when my daughter fell down the stairs, I had to take her to the doctor... and that was a bit uncomfortable.
Everyone is so sensitive to child abuse, or maybe I'm just nervous in general? Who knows!
Thanks for reading, Megan

A normal hospital stay for a c-section delivery is 3 to 4 days depending on your hospital’s policy, doctor, your health, and your babies health. Once the hospital discharges you, it is important that you have help once you get home so that you can rest as much as possible. I remember when they were getting ready to…Continue

If you children are using the Internet it is important as a parent to keep them as safe as possible. There are many dangers on the Internet that most kids don’t understand or care to understand because they are naive. They think that everyone on the Internet is who they say that they are and don’t feel as if anyone can really harm them, when in reality this is far from the truth. There are predators searching online for tweens and teens looking to mislead them down the wrong path. Also, many…Continue
In June of 2011, I began using a breast pump on a regular basis to start building a stash of breast milk for my baby so that he would have plenty of milk once I returned back to work. When I returned to work, I knew exactly where I would have to use my breast pump but I never did put much thought into how I planned on cleaning my breast pump parts after I finished a pumping session. Luckily at my job, we had a break room that had a clean sink. Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry about…

Sunday arrives. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to tell my family or not. I just don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, let me be honest, my younger sister and my younger brother already know. So basically who’s left to tell are my older sister and older brother and my parents. My older brother won’t be there today, and my older sister is easy going and will probably be excited. She loves babies. My parents are my concern. I have no idea what reaction to expect from them. And…Continue

Rascal had a good time playing Wii games after the kids went to school yesterday. He got rid of his excess energy and crashed just about the time my oldest son got home from school. Then last night as I was getting ready for bed, Rascal told me good night as he was leaving to head back to the North Pole.
This morning I heard him coming in the back door shortly after I got up. It was really windy outside this morning and I wanted to make sure that Rascal made it inside safely. The…Continue

Rascal came down from the chandelier after the kids went to bed. He said that he was ready to go for his nightly visit with Santa Claus. I don’t know why he was in such a hurry to run off, but it must have been very important to Rascal.
Hopefully, he wasn’t off to the North Pole in search of more sweets, this seems to be his favorite thing to eat. He must have been out pretty late again last night, because he was sneaking back in just as I was coming out of our bedroom to go wake…Continue

I wake up the next day, and before I’m out of bed, BOOM it hits me just like that. Everything in my mind has changed. This isn’t just a good thing, it’s a great thing. It is a blessing. I want kids. So maybe it didn’t happen the way that I thought it would. It definitely didn’t happen the way I envisioned, but that doesn’t mean it’s anything but great. I say it again to myself It is a blessing!
My brother’s statement from last night plays again in my head, “If you think of it…Continue
My son came home from school a few days ago with a paper sack and handed it to me. He said mom, “this is for you.” I asked him what about dad, he said,”it was for him too.” I carefully opened the paper bag and peeked inside. I pulled out this cute ornament that he made at school for us.
I asked my son how they made it and he told me, so that I could share it with my readers. It is a simple craft idea that you can easily do with your children. And it would look cute hanging a few…Continue

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind. I decided to move him to the mantel so that the my baby or the puppy wouldn’t get ahold of him. Again, I placed him up on the mantel so that he can watch the kids. We have less than a week left with Rascal and I am already getting sad. He has been a great addition to our family and created a new tradition for my children.
Rascal was excited to go tell Santa Claus that he was able to…Continue

Rascal had to be rescued from the toy box so that my toddler wouldn’t misplace him or play with him. I placed him on the fireplace mantel so that he could still keep an eye on the kids. By that evening, he was ready to head to the North Pole to go visit Santa Claus, the other elves, and reindeer. He left shortly after the kids were tucked into bed and I didn’t hear him sneak back into the house this morning. In fact, I wasn’t sure if he made it home in time to cause any mischief.…Continue
