Hey dolls, Happy Sunday. Wrapping up August with a revisit to an old post I thought was relevant since school has arrived once again. Summer can be disruptive to a bedtime flow because of the later Sunset and all the fun activities. Getting back into the swing of things can cause stress and anxiety.
Bedtime for kids can either be fun or full of drama.
You had a long day at work or you have spent your day home with the kid’s one task after another and when 7:30 rolls around all…Continue

Last Saturday my life changed.
No I did not get a promotion, we didn't move and Lord knows there is no pregnancy announcement coming.
Friends- we are getting new couches.
Those who know me already know that this is actually big news in our home. Those microfiber monsters have been a real point of contention in my marriage for years. You see when i was preggers with the twins I was a bit hormonally whacked and all over the place emotionally.…Continue

You are an example to the children in your life, whether that is a niece/ nephew, or kids in the youth group at your church. Also, I encourage all Godly women to find…Continue

For a few seasons, I have had a gaggle of unpublished adventures nesting in my attic. I have both nourished and disciplined these ideas and scribbles. But, it wasn’t until March of this year that I was given the…Continue

Shopping with kids is zero percent fun guys...
We spend a lot of time and money at Target. We live about one minute from our local Target, it's a SUPER Target and it opens before 9 am. It is where us early bird suburban moms hang. The morning employees at our local Target basically know us by name. If we don't visit three times a week they get kind of nervous and wonder what is up. I don't like to worry them.
So today we had already been to McDonalds, the park and…Continue

“Don’t compare your insides to someone else’s outside.” I first heard this quote years ago, well before the rise of social media. Now, more than ever, it speaks volumes to me.
As far back as middle school, and possibly even elementary school, I remember girls comparing themselves to one another. It didn’t stop there. Girls judged: on looks, on clothes, on choices of friends, on anything and everything. It’s so much a part of…Continue

As parents some of us find it difficult to start saving. Many of us have 401K/403B plans through our jobs so we believe that’s saving or some think how can I possibly save any money, there’s never any left over?!?!?!?!? As parents we need a rainy day fund, especially if you have a children, a car, a house or WHATEVER!!! There will always be a time when the unexpected happens.
I started saving early in life, so I was able to buy my first home at 28 years old. I knew…Continue

Being a woman, the title of this post alone is a very hard thing to admit to. Admitting that we struggle causes us to feel that we aren’t good enough or that we’ve failed in some form. But, I find it an appropriate time to be bold and reveal some of the thoughts I face on being…Continue

In today’s time, every toddler and growing kid is a gadget freak. You cannot help but buy them gadget or video game of their choice. However, wouldn’t it be better if you provide them with educational video game that not serves their interest but also educates them and makes them smarter!

When we lived in a city, my kids went to the playground daily. In my stroller basket, you could always find the essentials: helmets, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and balls. Then we moved to the suburbs, a somewhat rural suburb, where we no longer walk to the park, and kids ride in cars and buses. Would our playground toys gather dust in our new home? Happily, minus the stroller, my city kids have stuck to their roots. And yes, our first big purchase for the house was…Continue

Every parent wants the best for their children. They can do anything for their children. When it comes to the food, children have the various tantrums for eating the healthy food. Today, most of the children love to eat the street and the junk food that can have the bad effect on their health. Sometimes it becomes very difficult for the parents to decide what to do and what not to. In this situation, you can take the help of the website like…Continue

Did you know it’s Earth Month? Earth Month begins on March 19th and runs until Earth Day, on April 22nd.
To celebrate Earth month, week and day, I am doing a giveaway from an amazing company Green Toys! Green Toys is an eco-friendly toy company. They use 100% recycled materials and US-based manufacturing to create toys for all ages.
Mandalas are wonderful. Our Universe is a giant mandala and I have discovered over the years the many benefits of painting or coloring mandalas either simply or in a complicated fashion. The benefits seem to be amazing and long lasting no matter what road you take. So I started using mandalas with children and it helps them focus, de-stress and relax very quickly. In this day and age of pressure and fast paced…Continue

It is every parent's worst nightmare to lose a child. I remember being angry at myself for even letting the thought cross my mind. It was unimaginable. Luckily this didn't happen to people like us so I had nothing to worry about...until I did. By the time I let myself believe it was a possible outcome that night, it already was the outcome. He was too far gone. No longer did I…Continue
