There are so many different brands of prenatal vitamins now they take up half an aisle at Target. You have prenatal gummy vitamins, regular pill form vitamins, and now you can also get prenatal drinks, powder drink mixes, and prenatal vitamin snacks. They also range in cost. Does the difference in the kind of prenatal vitamin form or price really matter? Yes and no. If you have a hard time swallowing pills then a drink or a squeeze pouch snack will work for you, but not all of them…Continue

Most moms will agree that mothering is a full-time job. There is always something to do and your hours are not restricted to eight hours a day. Plus, many mothers are also juggling full-time jobs, part-time jobs, businesses or careers. How does a mother make it all fit into one day without compromising her sanity? A life coach can help busy moms regain balance and achieve…Continue

When you have kids it is very hard to find/take time for yourself. When you are a parent though self-care is very important. If you aren't taking care of yourself, it is hard to take care of others. This is a hard lesson to learn for some. To this day when I have a moment, usually when my daughter is napping, I could take some time for myself but instead I think of all the other things I need to get done, and I try to tackle some items on my to do list. This is why I have had an unused…Continue

We all lie period. For different reasons at different levels at different times and to different people. I've talked about this before. Our current President is a huge example of lies. So why should we expect that our kids would not engage in this deception as well?
Now that my daughter is older she has moments where she will say to me "oh I can…Continue

I recently decided I needed to squeeze my material footprint into a smaller shoe.
At a muggy mid-summer craft fair, I realized I was sick of stuff. I deluded myself into believing that my indie business was eco-friendly because I tried to use recycled materials and minimize packaging. My wares were definitely a conscientious…Continue

Does potty training ever get easier once you start? My knee-jerk reaction is…HELL NO. However, I have only really been at it with my son, Ryder, for the last month or so, and in some ways things have gotten tremendously easier. We have tried so many times before but he just didn’t end up…Continue

What’s In My Diaper Bag?
These are the main items that can be found in my diaper bag for two boys at any given time. My toddler gets car sick, so we have to pack more for him than I normally would. I have also included links to certain products listed here just on the…Continue

Now this post is less about the kiddos and more about Mommy & Daddy.
I've always been interested in "personality characteristics" and why people act the way they do. I think it sometimes has to do with how they were raised and a big part is how they are wired. Nature vs Nurture. Voila!
Hubs and I did the …Continue

HISTORY DOESN’T DEFINE YOU. YOUR CHOICES DOES
Imagine that you stand on the edge of a platform at the swimming pool... Blindfolded!
You have no idea how high up the platform is, if it is the 1-meter, 5-meter or the 10-meter platform. You have no idea if there is water in…Continue

The bears in my household outnumber me. They are there in the morning, facing me with their anger at the fact that the sun has risen in the sky yet again, forcing them from their slumber and making them face another day. I try to focus on my thankfulness that it is another beautiful day; I try to enjoy the morning...but why do people think that it is OK to be…Continue

When I look at my phone, I see all the apps that I use the most on my first screen. I took all those factory apps that I never use and stuck them in a folder so I could have more room, and put the apps that I have to have but rarely use on a secondary screen. At the time, I thought of this as me staying organized, but after reading this piece on…Continue

I’ve decided to try something new. This will be a way for me to talk about my favorite and least favorite things at the end of every month. I’ll share a recipe, give a review, and discuss what I am most looking forward to in the next month.
Favorites of July
Naturebox – We have been a NatureBox subscriber for some time now and it’s probably our favorite delivery service. We typically buy the not-so-good-for-you snacks and this is a great way to try…Continue

It has been some time, since I've last checked in. My life over the last year has been tumultuous to say the least. Trying to find employment has been ridiculously hard, and once unemployment ran out, my only option was to dig in and try to survive with my writing. I'm reaching out to you, because I so need support. As crazy as it seems, my grandmother always said, "If you don't do, you don't get," so here goes.
My newest contemporary romance, AT LAST, was accepted as a…
What is death to you? Is it a person or a thing? What if death was a soft heartfelt being that had all of the answers to all of the questions you’ve ever had? What if death was loving and caring and would carry you to your final resting place?

This is a really difficult time to raise children.
We are surrounded by information, but that information tends to present a lot of problems (what not to eat, what not to buy, new epidemics to worry about) yet rarely offers up solutions.
We also live in a time where it is very easy to…Continue

The fabulous, organized #plannerlove continues on the blog... Loving the layout and ease of use of my Happy Planner from Me and My Big Ideas! As I mentioned before, I am using two planners. One is a daily task planner for work, home and blogging. The other I am using as more of a journal / scrapbook of adventures and quotes from each week. I have been working this way for a few weeks…Continue
