What Happened on Halloween + Nanowrimo???

My kids are relatively small and this trick or treating thing is new to me but year after year I get better. After school, the two year old and I picked up the four year old and off we went. Initially I was spazzing out about trick or treating for the first time on my… Continue reading What Happened on Halloween + Nanowrimo???

Back to School Haul|Pottery Barn Kids|Lunch Essentials

My four year old will be entering Pre-K for the 2017-2018 school year as she didn't meet the cut off age for Kindergarten. Can't say I'm not bummed about that because I've been teaching her basic math, and reading.

What My Second Kid Taught Me About Parenting

After the birth of my second child almost two years ago, I have been feeling more incompetent that ever but I'm not beating myself up over it because I know I'm outnumbered.

I shop cheap for my kids: Here’s the why & where

Not that I'm crapping on anyone's parade but sometimes when I see wee little babies/kids wearing a high-end brand name shirt I inwardly cringe. Apart from them outgrowing clothes, they're pretty much rough with it. My kids change clothes about four or five times a day. There's always food stains, art stains and dirt marks… Continue reading I shop cheap for my kids: Here’s the why & where

Ice Cream for Breakfast?

Do you ever stop to remember the exact moment that your little rascals developed an insanely ridiculous sweet tooth? Now I'm not talking about a little treat here and there, I'm talking about how they attempt to bully me into giving them chips, oreos and ice-cream for breakfast. It doesn't work, however.
