dishes

Keeping a house clean when you have children is no small feat. Of all the things I have to do to keep my house clean, washing the dishes is one of my least favorite. Next to laundry, of course. And sweeping, and cleaning the bathroom, and vacuuming. And we can’t forget dusting. Ugh, dusting is the WORST! Anyway, today we …

breastfeeding

If anyone reading this is pro-exclusive breastfeeding and/or anti-formula, you should probably stop reading now. It’s been over eight years since I had my first child. Breastfeeding was a hot-button topic then, and for reasons beyond my comprehension, it’s still something that is considered controversial and “newsworthy.” Personally, I started breastfeeding my children right away for one main reason – …

to-do list

I am a big fan of the to-do list. I make one for myself every week. I even write things on it that I’ve already done to make it seem like I’ve accomplished something (and also to remind myself that I did it, and do NOT need to do it again, which sometimes works). Anyway, since children don’t have all that many …

I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. Even as a kid, it didn’t interest me. Hearts and love were “girly” and that just wasn’t me. I even didn’t like cards with glitter long before I became a Mom and hating glitter became the “cool” thing to do. Before my kids began any sort of schooling, I never made too …

toys

Once you become a parent, you instantly realize that there are certain types of toys that you will most definitely hate, like anything that requires batteries and/or makes noise. Almost everything else falls into the category of toys that you will hate to love. Anything in the arts and crafts department makes the latter list for me, thanks to the folks …

America

For those of you who have read my posts in the past, you know that I typically strive for humor. But over the last few days, I’ve had a hard time finding the funny. So this is going to be one of those “serious Mom” posts. I am distraught, and afraid, and my heart aches. I am fearful of the …

save money

The New Year is always a time for people to reflect on how they can better themselves – exercise more, eat healthier, and save money are usually at the top of the list. I try to do all of these things throughout the year, oftentimes sporadically, but I find myself especially drawn to any article I see that focuses on …

no time

What is is about the New Year that has everybody thinking they can suddenly conquer the world? Getting in shape, organizing your house, finally getting stuff done! I’m not judging; I’m just as guilty of it as anyone else. As the end of every year approaches, I have a tendency to tell myself that I have no time for all that …

decorating

Decorating for the holidays can be a little tricky when you’re a Mom. I don’t need the perfectly decorated tree with the coordinating ornaments – I actually love all the hand-made decorations from my kids. But I could definitely do without the piles of laundry, and paper, and toys all over the place. With little kids running around, the house …
