Ultimate Checklist – How Much Does It Cost To Raise A Kid?

Seeing babies and young children with their parents everywhere you go may tempt you into wanting a child of your own. But the question is, can you really afford to raise a child, at least at this point in your life? Consider your own needs, as well as the needs of your future offspring, and figure out if you can fulfil all of those needs before deciding to start a family.

The good news is that you certainly don't have to be rich to have the family of your dreams. There are smart ways…

Advice from Busy Moms

I have a lot of busy moms in my line of work.  A lot of them have their own “trade secrets” and I wanted to tap into that knowledge base and share their best tips with you.  Here is what I came up with.  Many of these are direct quotes from moms like you.  If they can do it, so can you!  Pick one tip and start there.

-Use grocery delivery services such as Pea Pod.  You can set up a recurring delivery so your staples arrive automatically every single week.  Don’t spend time at the…

Potty Training Secrets: Learn Why I Am Hesitant to Switch My Toddler to Big Kid Underwear Until My Child Has Fewer Accidents

Many parents often times pressure their children to start potty training their child before they are fully ready.  Potty training before your child is ready can cause unnecessary stress for both you and your toddler.  With all three of my kids, I waited until they were ready to potty train before I even attempted it.  A…

Routines: A must or a bust?

http://thebreezymama.com/baby-routines-a-must-or-a-bust/

Having two children myself, I can safely say that no two children are exactly alike. In fact, mine are about as opposite as can be. My daughter loved pacifiers and was addicted to hers until age 3; my son had used a pacifier about 5 times total his first couple of weeks after birth and decided it was just not his cup of tea. My daughter was a very…

Midnight Milkshakes, Blanket Forts, and Other Family Fun

One of the best ways to develop relationships and build confidence is to have fun together as a family.  I just discovered there is a month long celebration aimed at that very thing, strengthening families and building healthy, confident kids.  National Family Month is exactly what it sounds like, a celebration of family.   It runs annually from Mother's Day to Father's Day. 

An easy way to have fun with your kids is to remember what you enjoyed when you were their age and then do it…

Keeping my kids busy, while one's fighting a fever!

My 4 year old is still fighting his fever, my 6 year old is full of energy and I'm fighting a cough, sore throat and swollen glands. There were a few St Patty's Day events I wanted to check out today, but from the neck up, I don't feel well at all. Usually, I would type in my symptoms, but I don't event want to know what a Google search would say could be wrong with me (I'm staying away from WebMD). Damn it! Being sick really…

Heart Healthy, Kid Friendly Chicken Recipe

One of the challenges I have faced in my journey to be green, healthy and fit is in the area of cooking.  If you have read my posts before, you know about my aversion to cooking.  It’s one of those necessary evils I suppose, even though I am what you might call “kitchen challenged”.  Don’t like cooking or baking, but I can clean like a champ!

My husband is, quite fortunately for me, the kind of guy who will eat pretty much whatever I put in front of him.  Even if he doesn’t like it so…

Jetty Island

Today I headed out to Jetty Island with Isabel to meet up with a mommy play group.  Jetty Island is a long strip of land in the bay off the coast of Everett, WA.  I've heard from a few co-workers that it was a great place to bring your kids but I never made the journey before.  For one, it would have been just Izzy and I and it's not as fun without other kids to join in.  Since The North shore mommy play group planned to met there it was the perfect opportunity to check it out.…

Trauma: How Derek Got Hit By A Car

It was a red minivan, actually.  We had just pulled into the driveway from picking Troy up from preschool.  There were several neighbor kids walking home from school across the street.  As all four of my kids and the two pups spilled out of our car, a couple of the kids asked if they could see the puppies.  Jason and I walked across the street with the pups.  I looked back towards the house and Derek and Troy had climbed the tree at the end of the driveway.  Everyone seemed so safe.…

Over the Hump

I just have to share this.  Do you know those motorized rides you see at the supermarket or the mall?  They look like little cars or boats that you have to pop in some quarters for them to start.  They just rock back and forth and play sounds.  Until today Izzy has been deathly afraid of them.  Continue

Toddler Proof Wall Decals

Do you rent? We do. When my hubby was chosen for these new orders we agreed to rent a place until we knew for sure that we would settle down here. We didn't want to go through the rush of trying to sell like we had to with this last move. That was WAY too much stress and I don't even want to get into the crap our house is worth now because of the economy.  So now we're renting. One reason I was sad to move was because I took time to … Continue
