Well, because family values are super important! They totally shape who we are, and now as a mum I have to help shape someone else's life.
In all things I want all my children to hold on to these values and never give up on themselves, their family and people. I want to have a tight family and have a close relationship with all my children. When I think of my family and how we are all so close with each other that we can…Continue

I was on the floor, dressed as a super hero, playing with the three-year-old daughter of a friend of mine. The little girl is just like her Mom - crazy smart and kindhearted and has the most brilliant smile. So, we played as super heroes (and we of course saved the day). And then we pretended to go to the zoo and she gave me a tour of her room and she drew me some pictures.…Continue

I was looking through our family photo albums when my son plopped himself into my lap. (Full disclosure: I love that he still does that.) He was about three years old in that particular album and as we looked through the photos and I told him stories, I realized how much time he spent following me around. If I was in the kitchen, he was there. If I went into the laundry room, he was there. If I went on any chore, he was there. I recall…Continue

Personally, with baby bear at 15m of age I think store bought toys are overrated. Actually, I think they’re almost all pretty much unnecessary.
You see, I keep thinking it’s a great idea to buy all these neat toys for Baby Bear. They will…Continue

As mama bear of a gorgeous little monster, I am well aware that my day does not always go as planned. In fact, it rarely goes anywhere near my perfectly crafted outline. From spills to tumbles and meltdowns to naps sometimes the…Continue

At a baby shower I attended today, there was a little card on my plate that read, in squiggly, pink script, “Your Advice to the Mother-To-Be”.
You’d think that as a new mom and blogger on everything pregnancy and motherhood-related, I’d have mounds of advice to give… right? But I…Continue

…is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Reunited and it feeeels so gooood!
It’s back to school time here in VA. That means teachers are back in their classrooms tearing down paper and setting up bulletin boards. To be honest, the first week they are usually sitting in meetings and trying to figure out the expectations for the year, oh and reuniting with work buddies. Most of the time teachers are as excited to see one another as the…

Taking a toddler to a restaurant is really a crap-shoot. Sometimes he’s golden, others he wants nothing to do with it. Usually, if we can keep him entertained, we’re good. On the days he’s on point I feel like I should play the lottery. We usually choose venues that are: louder, don’t mind a mess and have chicken tenders. Yesterday, we met up with friends from work and some of their kids to surprise and celebrate one of our friend’s change from one school to another. She will be missed and…Continue

I had no idea the 2016 Summer Olympics would affect our life so greatly. Now I’m only being slightly facetious here. I love the Olympics and find myself a little lost now that I don’t have a new series of events to cheer for every night. Maybe I’ll get into bed before 1am now. Yeah right.

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.

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

It's 7:30 pm. Let the battle begin.
Let's say (for fun) that I can somehow get my son upstairs to start his bedtime routine at 7:30 pm (without the stalling, last-minute things he absolutely "has" to tell me and without any whining). Let's just say that happened. What follows is a series of check-ins. Did…

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
