35 things for your Tween’s Easter Basket

  I love assembling Easter baskets. It’s been a family tradition since the girls were babies. Holiday traditions naturally evolve as the years pass. This is the third Easter that we’ve had non-bunny-believers, a fact that I’ve managed to completely ignore for the last two Easters.   Recently my girls and I were in Target. While they looked at clothes, […]

When Baby Boy Transformed into Middle Child

For a while, we were so happy with our family dynamic. We had two boys, Eldest Boy and Baby Boy. To us, it was perfect. Nothing is better than brothers! Then one day, shortly before our Baby Boy turned three, we decided that we were wrong. We could see more babies in our future. And […]

Their Space

  I’m conflicted about the state of my daughters’ bedrooms. They are thirteen and their rooms are a perpetual state of mess. One occasionally gets tired of her own mess and picks up. Her twin does not. I have always been a little OCD. Well, OK, maybe a lot. As a child my bedroom was […]

Confessions-of-Lactation-Professional

Confessions of a Lactation Professional

Officially, Lactation Professionals go by a handful of different titles. IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor), Lactation Educator, and Lactation Specialist are a few of the most common titles you’ll come across in the US. Unofficially, it gets a bit more colorful. Lactivists, Nipple Nazis, Breastopo, and Anti-formula Freaks are a few […]

Parting is such sweet sorrow? Perhaps not when it comes to toddler friendships

There are many articles on how to leave your toddler with the babysitter/daycare/camp etc. without incurring a meltdown. Do you sneak out? Or, do you acknowledge their fears? Perhaps you sing a goodbye song? (Our favorite, Grown-Ups Come Back by Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood). However, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the way toddlers greet […]

Spring Break Shopping Spree at the New Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Store in Kissimmee

We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our time at the new Ollie’s Bargain Outlet store in Kissimmee, FL! We received a gift card to use while checking out the location. My girls had one wish over spring break. They wanted to go shopping! They both had received money from earning A’s on their report card, and it was […]

Getting in Shape: Hard Exercise Works

    Getting in Shape: HEW Review A few weeks ago I started out on a journey. A challenge, you could say, to complete the 5 week boot camp at the Hard Exercise Works gym by UCF. I’m not overweight, or super skinny. I’m not terribly out of shape, but then again I do get […]

7-ways-to-Reuse-Plastic-Eggs

Thinking Beyond the “Plastic” Eggs

Easter will be coming up before we know it. Soon you’ll see Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail, and those very vibrant plastic eggs being displayed in many homes and businesses. I’m a mama who LOVES DIY projects, crafts, & anything that is reused/upcycled. While I realize it’s not for everyone, I wanted to share […]
