Currently I've developed a schedule that I roughly follow daily, and it appears to be helping. It's also a great addition that my kids are getting older and can keep themselves busy for longer periods of time. I assume this gets better with time. It's still on a day to day basis with me, how … Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer
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???
Something I’ve struggled with since childhood was people constantly making weight comments in a deregatory way. My weight has fluctuated all during my childhood and until now but I’ve never been to the point where it’s an unhealthy weight gain, just a little chub. Because of the mean comments I’d gotten at an age too … Continue reading She said “fat” to my kid! :O
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
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 don't have help with my children so they are with me all the time and it's tough. My husband is in the … Continue reading What My Second Kid Taught Me About Parenting
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?
