Potty Training Survival Kit

1. Big kid panties. Have your child pick them out. Make it seem like you’re buying gold! Perhaps wrap them up and hand them over as a gift; with balloons and confetti that fly everywhere, once opened. Have them modeled around the house, the neighborhood, Walmart (the kid would fit in). Point is, just make a BFD about them. They need to be truly excited about this article of clothing if you want to ditch the diapers. They won’t be this ecstatic about underwear again until they’re picking it out…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a SAHM to two, little girls, one born in Sept. 2012, and the other born in August 2014. I have a laid-back approach to parenting and find that a sense of humor helps in all situations! I love the outdoors, wine, working out, and doing anything that involves my family.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I love having an audience and always keep them in mind, but I truly write for myself. It is a wonderful way to release my thoughts and emotions-good and bad.
I have been blogging since...
I'm a new blogger--less than a year

After two and a half years at this parenting gig, I’ve learned a lot of things. One biggie is that I absolutely, positively hate stuffed animals! Loathe is a better word, actually.

My house is getting overtaken by these tiny demons, full of cotton.

They are everywhere.

Holding My Breath as a Parent

Posted on January 29, 2015 at 4:49pm 0 Comments

To my girls:



I first held my breath about you when I had my first prenatal appointment. As the midwife approached my belly with the Doppler, I couldn’t breathe. How would I react if I didn’t hear your heartbeat? As soon as I heard that beautiful sound, like horses galloping in my body, I let the air, and tears, out.



I then held my breath as I went in for the anomaly scan, first at 20 weeks, then at 18. As I watched your minute features twitch and move, I let out a sigh of… Continue

“The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings.”

It happens slowly. A little at a time but it’s noticeable.

It’s bittersweet. You encourage it, but at the same time, it breaks your heart.

Your new baby is 100% dependent on you. They need you for food. They need you to aid them to sleep. They need you to change their diapers. They need you.

In a blink of the eye, this baby…
