to-do list

I love a good to-do list. If I didn’t write a to-do list every week, I would literally never get anything done, because I would completely forget that I had to do it in the first place. To be fair, I still don’t get much done, but at least I remember that I forgot to do it. But one thing …

baby toys

The first few weeks of school is one of my favorite times of year for obvious reasons. But the part I probably love the most is the fact that I can now safely rid my house of all the toys, and pieces of garbage my kids use as toys, that seem to have gotten together and had little garbage toy …

ten years

Today, my oldest child turns ten years old. While this milestone is a big deal for kids, I feel like it’s an even bigger milestone for their mothers. Of course, it marks your child’s tenth year on this planet, but when it’s your first child, it also marks the tenth anniversary of you becoming a Mom. Perhaps I’ll get myself …

Summer is FINALLY here. Have your kids said that they’re “bored” yet? Haha, I’m just kidding! Of course they’ve said it! I’m not typically fond of buying new stuff just to entertain my kids during these hot months, but here are a few summer toys that I’ve found to be quite helpful in beating the heat, and the boredom. 1.

mother

Becoming a mother is a rite of passage, and with this rite of passage, you get certain privileges. After you enter motherhood, you get to say things like “Eat your vegetables before they get cold,” and “Because I said so, that’s why!” Moms get to say these things because they’ve earned the right. And because I said so, that’s why! …

Parenting is a lot of things – wonderful, annoying, rewarding, annoying, irritating, confusing, upsetting, amazing – take your pick. At any given moment, kids can make it one, or all of those things put together. But no matter your current emotion, it always ends with the same result – parents everywhere asking questions to which they already know the answers. …

skills

There are many skills you acquire once you become a parent. Some of them are obvious and well-known to most people, like Moms ears that can hear the tiniest of whimpers in a deep sleep, or growing eyes in the back of their head, while Dads become very adept at sleeping through literally anything.

Spring is FINALLY here, which means it’s time for parents to open up those windows, let some fresh air in, and remind your neighbors why they like the winter so much. Between yelling at your kids, your kids yelling at each other, and you yelling at your kids for yelling at each other, it’s hard to hide your true colors …
