With the onset of cold and flu season, I thought it was only appropriate to share about a fabulous company I was recently introduced to — Maty’s Healthy Products.
Aside from being all-natural, made in the US, and using food-based ingredients in their products, their cough syrup is so good you can spread it on your toast!
This is a post I’ve been itching to write for years already — but I didn’t think I would hold any “clout” on the topic until I had at least 2 kids.
So now that the “having two kids” part has been taken care of, I have a few (maybe more than a few) things to say about why I STRONGLY believe we should stop worrying and stressing about making every single aspect of our children’s lives “fair” and “equal”.
For anyone who may be tempted to click away thinking “another post about babies… I’m not interested”, let me assure you this post has little to nothing to do with babies.
However, it might change the way you use your free time!
It’s been a while since I shared many “family life” photos here on the blog… so since Fall is my favorite season of the year, I figured it was time to share!
Simon hit the 7-month milestone over the weekend — so that means lots of cute baby boy pictures on the blog today!
I smiled the entire time I sat writing this post — I hope you smile as you read it.
Thanks for journeying with me on the rocky road of motherhood… slowly but surely, I’m finding my way
Last week, two different people emailed me asking for advice on clutter-free gifts for kids.
So, in honor of the fact that today marks 100 days until Christmas (yes, you read that right!), and the fact that I’m a huge advocate for completing at least some holiday shopping nice and early, I’m sharing a few of my favorite clutter-free gifts for kids.
I’m so excited about today’s giveaway — partially because I know how much this bag has helped me to simplify and organize getting out and about with 2 little kids (something that is otherwise VERY stressful for me). But also because the PacaPod bags are WAY more than “just” diaper bags.
They are stylish everyday bags that work for anyone in any season of life for almost any on-the-go destination!
The back-to-school time of year can be very stressful and chaotic, but CalendarsAndChores.com has the perfect solution.
Their fabulous magnetic calendars are the perfect way to organize all your busy family activities in one convenient spot… so yeah, I’m really excited to be giving away one of their wall calendars today!
Today, we’re enjoying Dave’s very last day at home before school starts up, bright and early tomorrow morning.
For one last day this summer, we’re all together ALL DAY LONG. Going for walks, playing outside, eating 3 meals a day at our kitchen table, and snuggling together on the couch (per Nora’s daily request).
Nora is potty trained… Hallelujah!
Come check out her big girl undies, her hilarious potty training one-liners, and how we managed to (fairly easily) potty train our very stubborn little girl.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve spent more time looking into different personality types… and I’ve learned a lot about myself as an introvert.
I do not feel less than, or worse, or slighted, or restrained in any way simply because I lean more towards the introverted spectrum of personalities. I actually find it fascinating to learn more about my personality type and what make me “tick”!
Our BabyBjörn bouncer is one of the best, if not THE best, piece of baby gear we’ve ever purchased. So yeah, I’m just a teeny, tiny, little bit excited that one of you has the opportunity to win one today!!!!
Come enter to win!
Both our kids watch a fair amount of TV every day — not because we are horrible parents, or because we don’t have time or energy to play with them, or because they can’t entertain themselves.
Today, I’m sharing the reasoning behind why we let our kids watch TV… and I’d love to know your thoughts on TV and screen time for kids!
Simon is 5 months old today — come see cute baby boy (and proud big sister) photos
Last year, Dave’s family rented a local cottage for a week of fun at the beach. We had such a good time that we thought we’d try it again this year.
Now that Nora is another year older, it was SO fun to watch her swim and play in the sand with her cousins — definitely the highlight of this year’s trip for me!
Happy Birthday America… and happy 4 months baby Simon. Be prepared for lots of cute pictures!
Today is Dave and my 8-year anniversary!
So in honor of our 8 years together, I’m sharing 8 frugal (or free) date ideas — many of which won’t even require a babysitter.
Today is my birthday!
And instead of giveaways or any other fancy, celebratory post, I’m sharing something that has been on my mind a lot lately. It also just so happens to fit perfectly with this special day.
For those of you who have young children, those of you who aren’t necessarily super creative or crafty, and those of you who have no idea what you’re going to do now that your kids are home ALL DAY LONG, here are a few things we do to stay busy…
You’ll notice that most of these activities require little to no creativity, little to no monetary cost, little to no set-up, and little to no clean-up! Win, Win, Win, Win!
