A few years back, I would admit that I was a slave to notifications, always checking my apps, always looking to see if my comment was liked or commented on by peers or family. I've never been a crazy picture poster as I have always valued my privacy, but I did post more than I … Continue reading I Go Off The Radar on Weekends
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. I hate to think she'll be kept back a year but it's completely out of my … Continue reading Back to School Haul|Pottery Barn Kids|Lunch Essentials
Last weekend we took the kids to the lake and boy were we not prepared. We needed some essentials like water shoes, swim suits, sunscreen etc so off to Target we went on our way. Let's just say, although the day was a hit, I had some total mom fails. Obviously, it's not cool to … Continue reading Mom Fails & Summer Update
Back in 2012 when my first daughter was born, I couldn't help but share photos of her online. At the time, I used Facebook and Instagram as my main sites for social networking. They were both set on private settings which meant that only people I allowed to see my pictures would see it. I … Continue reading I Removed My Kids Pictures from The Internet
Can you tell I'm not a summer person? Just kidding. I have been MIA for a while and with good reason. Uh oh! Here comes the vent! It's honestly been overwhelming with the kids, work, house things, outings, errands ever since summer started. I forgot how hard it was having two kids create chaos all … Continue reading My Favorite “Me Time” Indulgences
Where do I get my blog content? I get my blog content the same way I get ideas for writing stories...through everyday life. Something or someone might spark a conversation in my head that I have with myself and voila! Things come to me while reading, cleaning, shopping etc. I'm pretty sure all of our … Continue reading Where do you get your blog content?
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
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. As much as … Continue reading Ice Cream for Breakfast?
As someone who has owned pets most of her life, getting a pet now seems far-fetched. Pets require a lot of maintenance, attention and love...basically they're a lot of work. It's like having another child. I'm probably giving the impression that I'm anti-pet but the truth is, I'm not one of those people who can … Continue reading I’d Like To Get A Pet but…
When I pictured Spring Break at the beginning of the year, I thought for sure I'd be able to do a few outings with the kids, leaving behind the immense loads of laundry that's usually piled up. Well so far, we haven't gone anywhere mind blowing(for the kids) but I'm holding out, we're not even … Continue reading How’s Spring Break 2017 going for you?
