Sauder Woodworking Co. is helping me complete my new breakfast nook

This post is sponsored by Sauder Woodworking Co., but all of the words, thoughts and opinions are my own.

Some of you may know that we’ve sold our home and will be moving out at the end of the month. We’ve been talking about moving closer to the water, off and on, for a couple of years. Adding Caileigh to our family has turned that talk into action. This means leaving the home we’ve loved for…

5 things you must know to survive the first week home with a newborn #Ad

This post is part of a sponsorship with BabyCenter, but all opinions and thoughts are my own.  In other words keep reading! I’m about to give you some really good tips! ;)

I’m not sure if it’s adrenaline, or just the dreamy state from the drugs that are still in my system, but the 1st night at home with a newborn always seemed to go pretty smoothly for me.  It’s always the 3rd or 4th night that…

5 ways to make playtime with your kids

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a get down on the floor and play kind of mom. I love spending time with my all 3 of my kids, but you probably will not see me playing Barbie or trains anytime soon. Also, being a work from home mom, sometimes I get lost in work, while they get lost in there toys, or even shutter TV!

Does this make me a horrible Mom?  NO! It just means that I need to get creative…

Why is it so horrifying to give a baby a bath?

I’m not sure who was more traumatized by Ellie’s first bath, her or I.  Actually, now that I think about it, for sure it was me! She can’t remember it, but I can!  It doesn’t help that I’m one of those people who imagines the worst possible scenario every time!  I thought for sure I was going to either drown her or drop her on the hard floor.  The entire time I had those awful visions running…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Commando Dad.

There is no shortage of baby books written for Moms, but what about new dads?  Of course there are novelty dad books, but who needs to laugh at 3am when you  have poop all over hands, spit up all over your shirt and you can’t get your baby to stop crying?

Moms have their built in instinct, but dads need straightforward practical…

Summer is even Breezier with a 4Moms Breeze

Quick little story before I jump into todays post and giveaway.  Yesterday while I was setting up to take photos of our 4moms Breeze.  My husband came outside to help me set up the playard. I told him I was fine, but he said “there is no way you’re setting this up while holding the baby.”  Of course I had to prove him wrong.  I then simple pushed down the center of the Breeze down and it popped…

Taking a few days off to have a baby!

I wasn’t going to do this, but the whole new baby thing has finally caught up to me. I’m going to take about 2 weeks off to have this baby and get settled in.

The thought of having 3 is finally staring to become a reality and I’m a little nervous!!!  How am I going to make sure all their needs are met?  Which one is going to have to cry a little longer while I finish up with the other? I mean…

My kids are still young, but Ellie will soon be at the age where kids start talking about drugs.  I am not looking forward to having this conversation with her.  I hope that Ellie is smart enough to not only say no, but come to us to talk about it.  I would hope that her father and I have done our job…

Family Friendly Spa and Resorts

This past December we had the opportunity to visit The Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa in Tucson for Ellie’s birthday. Ellie and I have gone to have our nails done together, but I had never taken her to an actual spa.  I was finally able to do that for her birthday.  I know it may seem a little indulgent, but even kids get stressed.  Taking the time to relax and just hangout with her was…
