This little girl will be promoted to “Big Sister” next Spring! More details coming later, but for now pass the tums and a toilet, thanks.
We have been busy-busy around here. Our summer so far has been filled with so many great memories. We’ve successfully checked off 16 things off our Summer Bucket List. Pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. A few things I just don’t think we’ll get to, but we still have a ton more […]
*Today’s craft is from Kate at Nearly Crafty! Perfect for back to school. Enjoy! Sis, my daughter, is headed off to a new preschool in September. She is crazy excited about the whole transition. She asks to drive by her new school when we are in the neighborhood and waves at the playground as we […]
If your kids are anything like mine, going back to school is a something you really have to prepare for. It’s more than buying new school clothes or getting the school supplies….it’s trying to get them back into some sort of routine and getting them to focus on more than when they can go outside […]
Many of you know I’m a huge advocate of breastfeeding, and new moms getting the proper help and education about nursing – so they may succeed. When I had my first child, over six years ago, I knew very little to almost nothing about breastfeeding. The nurse in the hospital did help me a little […]
**Warning: Half-nude photos and video below! My grandfather remarried before I was born. Her name was Virginia – she was this tiny little thing, with a strong voice and even stronger opinion on life. I remember her being very healthy, and a blessing for my grandfather. My grandfather passed away in 2004, and sadly, we […]
I received $100 from Merck Consumer Care, and any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Merck Consumer Care. Life happens right?! As moms, we’re constantly running around, either taking the kids to school, playdates, sports, appointments, or at home with chores, cooking, and everything […]
If you have an upcoming baby shower to attend, and either they don’t have a registry, your tight on money, or just don’t know what to get – I’m here to help. After three kids and six years, I’d say I know what’s a hit or a miss. Again though, these are my personal preferences, […]
This post is sponsored by SheSpeaks and Coca Cola. All thoughts and opinions are my own. If it were up to me, we’d just go outside and play in our backyard each day and call it a day. But, I do care about my kids’ feelings too, and for them going to the park is […]
I am so not ready for this. Monday night, my husband and I were talking about putting Athena (our 19 month old) in Kendall’s room, instead of Carleigh’s room (which she’s in now). Mainly because Carleigh is the oldest and is constantly complaining about not having her own space. Our house is small as it is, […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Netflix. It’s road trip season people. Where are you going?! We’re planning a trip down the Oregon coast and I’m super excited. Well, except for the part where we’ll be driving in the car, a lot. Our girls are six, three, and 19 months, […]
This is one subject I am very passionate about, and that’s breastfeeding and breastfeeding in public. What has our world come to, that boobs are supposed to be for sex and sexual purposes, and not for what God intended them to be, for feeding our children. My own family at times have looked at me […]
Do you ever look at your friends or relatives and think, “Wow, they have it all together!”? I do. I know I shouldn’t base my feelings off of others, but it’s hard not too. Especially with Facebook. Raise your hand if you post more than 90% positive posts. I mean, who really wants to share […]
I’m just sitting here in tears after watching this. Call me an emotional wreck, because my compassion is just crazy at times. If you need more after watching this, just go watch the videos on the GodVine Youtube channel. Make sure you grab some tissues, you’ll need them.
No one’s perfect. I’m most certainly not, but like many of you I strive to not only teach my children important lessons, but do so by example. The best place to do this is right in your own home. Last week I had the opportunity to attend a Seventh Generation Virtual Healthy Baby Home Party […]
Originally published June 2010, and updated. Cleaning is an everyday task for moms. A daunting one at that. It’s just never ending, especially with a six year old, a preschooler, and a toddler. It’s like cleaning after a tornado. My goal has been to try and get my girls to help me clean a little bit each […]
