When I was ready to start trying to get pregnant I started doing heavy research into how to get pregnant, how to have the healthiest pregnancy and how to give my newborn the best. Breastfeeding was something I knew very little about. Honestly, I knew it was good for babies, period. End of story that’s all I had ever really heard about it.

In the life of a SAHM, WAHM, and WM, we want our children to be active and have an enriched life. Mommy and me classes can be a great way to give a little structure to an activity and spend some time together. Keep in mind this doesn’t have to be just mom’s. Dads are awesome, grandparents are great, aunts and uncles are cool, older siblings are amazing and even the nanny or sitter can join in the fun too. Continue reading “Mommy And Me Classes!

When your kids are ready to head off to full-time schooling it may be a sigh of relief for you and your budget. If your work schedule allows you to work during their school hours, then you are set and don’t have to pay for child care anymore. For many parents, though, before or after school childcare comes into play so that they can get to and from work for the daily 9-5. Continue reading “10 After School Childcare Options”
I have to start this post by admitting a secret to you all. I am not the best at eating my veggies( I fake it in front of my kids). I have major issues with texture and my parents let me be fairly picky growing up.
I love to eat healthily and know how to eat healthily but definitely, fall short in the veggie area. In comes the spinach smoothies! They help me achieve higher veggie servings. Spinach smoothies also help kiddos that are picky eaters and aren’t getting enough veggies( not just 1 crazy lady). Continue reading “Kid Friendly Berry Spinach Smoothies”

Mornings are generally a rush to get out the door and most families don’t have time for a sit-down breakfast.

Summer break is such a great and memorable time for kids. Sleeping in, staying up late and playing outside all day long! Us mom’s get to sleep in a bit and enjoy a more leisurely pace throughout the day( who am I kidding we usually get up anyways to get things done and spend the day trying to keep the “I’m bored” comments to a minimum).

After you have kids it may be a little intimidating to head out to a restaurant like you used to. It’s a little terrifying that your little angel will scream and throw a tantrum right in the middle of the place and there you will be either the crazy yelling parent or the trying to calm it down but it’s not working parent. Both alternatives sound awful so the easy choice is just not to go out. But if you don’t take them with you then they won’t learn those social setting skills.
As I sit here with my morning cup of coffee, I knew I needed to share what has worked for me in terms of working efficiently from home with 2 little ones. It is not easy! Your schedule will get messed up but that is just the law of having children. So, if you can give it your best effort to plan well and then roll with it when life happens and you can’t stay on schedule. I think you can find a nice balance of working efficiently while still being an awesome mommy! Continue reading “How To Work Efficiently”
Having a routine is crucial to the first couple months of having a newborn and a toddler at home. As a stay-at-home mom, your days begin to blur if you do not have a set schedule. It’s something I have been failing at for the last few weeks and it’s starting to drive me crazy and the kids too!
So I decided to do something about it and what the something is, is a schedule…It has been amazing, we are up out of the house and productive and enjoying our days together. Continue reading “SAHM Routine For Baby And Toddler”
