A Small First Birthday Bash

It was kind of funny because we usually have WAY too many people at the these birthday parties since Husband likes to invite all of his friends and their kids. Add in that our house is pretty small and it gets really crowded. Like 50 plus people stuffed ….

Bigger & Better: Buttons Diapers Super One-Size Cloth Diaper Covers

*Diaper c/o Buttons Diapers for reviewing purposes. If you are a seasoned parent, you likely have experience with the diapering catastrophe known as the Blow Out. The blow out is that horror show of baby poop that goes flying out the legs and up the back (or front) of the diaper. Blow outs vary by baby and diaper. Some babies are just not very…..explosive.

Amara Organic Baby Food with Nutrition & Convenience In Mind

*Review item c/o Amara In our family, we tend to be pretty laid back in our child raising. I read a couple baby books and promptly dismissed about 90 percent of what I read and went with common sense. However, I was also going on all the experience I had as the eldest daughter in a bigger family. It is easy to be so nonchalant when you have been diapering ….

Lately Around the House

I feel stuck in a perpetual state of business and the lazies at the same time. Who wants to get out and do anything when it is a bazillion degrees below zero? Instead we indulged in a little too much baking and I have an extra 10 pounds to prove it. Not so great for the postpartum weight loss, but the kids sure liked it. Baby E is starting that ….

Four Months

Four months old. How has it been adjusting to baby number four? Four kids six and under? Not bad actually. The baby is easy compared to having to run to two schools on opposite sides of town that have starting times within 10 minutes of each other. Baby E is very much like my second child Wyn. He is built like her, long and lean. He is also a bit ….

When I Became A Morning Person

Rice crispie square optional. It is funny how certain life phases can completely change big parts of your personality. I used to be rather high strung and a bit uptight. I was also very uncomfortable voicing my feelings. I was most definitely a night owl. Motherhood has changed me in so many ways, mostly good I must say. Learning to let things go and address things that need it are ….

Managing Quality Time with My Middle Child

Sponsored by Pepperidge Farm Goldfish. One thing that really became real for me once we had more than one child was how distinctive their personalities can be , even as young infants. My first son was an easygoing baby who really just wanted to eat and sleep all of the time. He could put down an astounding amount of milk and then sleep for far more hours than you would ….
