I would like to thank Huggies for sponsoring today’s discussion. All opinions are my own. #HuggiesMomStyle I can't seem to remember a time when I didn't have baby wipes within arms reach.

The more I think about it, I've come to the realization that I'll probably always use baby wipes, even when my kids are older. I can picture myself as the Grandma who always has a baby … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 10.31.04 AM

Being a parent is so hard, am I right? We work so hard and it’s just so difficult to tell whether we’re getting it right. It’s much easier to tell when we’ve gotten something wrong. As if we weren’t hard enough on our selves, the “mommy wars” and society in general can sometimes come down even harder on us. No one is going to agree with every decision we make. Our confidence falters regarding parenting decisions where there really is no right answer. After six years and two kids, I’ve learned … [Read more...]

IMG_3492.jpg

Kids are great. They bring smiles and laughter to even the worst days. No matter how bad I feel, a smile and a hug from my kids makes me feel better than anything else could.

Instead of shrugging it off and moving on, I developed a plan to teach my kids how to give thanks all year, instead of just a couple of holidays. So far, the results have been successful.
