Two of my three kids hated their car seats - HATED. With my first car seat hater, I coped with the avoidance method. In other words, I avoided driving and bringing my little one anywhere unless it was absolutely necessary.
Easter hasn't always held a special place in my heart. I love all of our Easter family traditions - I love the big meal and how we cook together and eat together, I love watching my kids color eggs, I love hiding plastic eggs and watching my kids' faces light up when the eggs are found and opened, and I also love putting together special Easter outfits for my kids (even though my 11 and 15 year old are over this tradition and my toddler prefers to be naked.) But we don't necessarily celebrate the religious aspect of Easter (although we have family discussions about it), and I don't love all the candy and sugar it's associated with, and I don't love the pressure society seems to put onto parents about celebrating the arrival of the Easter bunny and filling basket with loads of chocolates, jelly beans, and peeps - the latter of which usually end up in the trash because we all know when there's a choice between jelly beans, peeps, and chocolate, chocolate will always win.

Our babies are pure and innocent, and their skin so delicate. And it's just not fair that you can come in whenever you feel like it, making them itchy and uncomfortable. Seriously, though eczema is the devil.
I love that I get to stay home with my kids, but I also love making money - I mean, who doesn't? Not to mention, living off of one income can be challenging! It is trickier and a little more of a challenge finding ways to make money with little ones, and without the help… Continue reading Ways I Am Making Money as a Stay-at-Home Mom
I am struggling today. I would really love to close my laptop, put my pj's back on, and veg out with Netflix. But I can't.
I'm a mom, and I have stuff to do.
So, how do I get myself going when I don't feel like it?
Today, I had a really weird experience. My baby outgrew his infant car seat a few months ago and I wasn't sure what to do with it, as none of my friends/family are pregnant right now or in need of one, so I decided to post it for sale on the LetGo app. It took… Continue reading Questions to Ask if Buying A Used Car Seat
Last week I worked on goal setting. My first goal is to make something more out of my blog - to actually write content and learn how to create a blog worth reading. I would love to create a blog that's informative and meaningful, that helps and encourages moms - and not just stay-at-home moms,… Continue reading Ways I am NOT Making Money as a Stay-at-Home Mom
I can't believe I'm finally taking this first step of starting a blog, and writing a post. I feel like an explorer of some vast unknown land. Super excited, but super intimidated. There is so much I have to learn! Between the widgets, the plug-ins, the hosts, and all the other techy stuff - not… Continue reading Hi, I’m New Here!
