Yes! it's finally Bedtime

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…

Parents don't have all the Answers

 A lovely evening of Pretty Little Liars watching with my Lil mama bought upon some great conversation and as I fell asleep last night this is what I thought of again. So I wanted to talk about it with you.

Here's is a BIG question...

Should I admit I don’ have all the answers? I don’t really know everything after all?

Would it be so terrible of me to actually “be human”?…

Opposites Attract

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 …

Helping Your Child Get Over Fear Of Water

My daughter has always been scared of the water. She doesn't like the pool or beach at all, even fountains (I think the only water she likes is the water from the faucet when she's taking a bath). No matter how we tried to entertain her (give her a toy, show her how much we're enjoying it, etc.) while in it, she would always be anxious, would cling to me and fuss so our pool or beach time would always be a quick one.

It…

Co-Sleeping, Yes or No?

Hey everyone, I am revisiting this post I did some time ago because I heard a disturbing story on the radio last week that touched on kids sleeping with their parent(s), specifically what age is too old for them to climb into bed with you.

I originally posted this back in 2013!

I ran into this article today and it peaked my interest with a topic I've thought about for a while.This article in the Stir about …

Establishing Rules for our Children

Hey everyone! Can you believe we are midway through July? Summer gives way to parents loosening up on some of there daily routines I thought I'd revisit one of my favorite topics, House Rules.

Rules should...

  • be tested, broken and amended accordingly. 
  • nothing should be followed blindly or set in stone.

This is part of our kids journeys as they grow up but parents, let’s make things easier on ourselves. We need to learn to establish and…

Tales from the Target- Part 1

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…

What's Up Wednesday

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

Don't Compare Your Insides to Someone Else's Outside

“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…

Who is judging you?

Think about a typical day out with your family. Think of all the places that you may go and all the strangers that may overhear the way your family interacts.



Do you feel judged?…

Research Examines the Link Between "Difficult" Child Behavior and iPad Use

Have you ever handed your iPad or phone to your kid when he/she is fussy? What about when they are having a full-blown tantrum? I'm sure many of us have done this. It's probably not our proudest parenting moment, but it happens.



What if this was a common (almost daily) occurrence in your family? What do you think the effect of this would have on your child? These are all questions that researchers are beginning to explore. The the rapid onset of tablets and…

Lazy Parent or Teaching Independence?

I'm a lazy parent! At least where it counts. This realization was inspired by a friend's similar confession. That may seem like a really strange thing to say, but it's true. I try not to do for my children as much as possible. That means…

10 THINGS I LEARNED AFTER A DAY WITHOUT MY PHONE

I woke up Sunday as if it were any other day, in a whirr of excitement to get ready for church. For some reason I’m just not a morning person, so I wake up with just enough time to shower, get little E ready after he eats and head out the door.

While waiting for church to start, I was talking with Trevor and his sister. She started talking about how her smart phone is so distracting. She’s constantly looking at it and was even thinking of switching to a flip phone.
