10 Secrets to Starting a Great Day #MotivationMonday

So many days I wake up grumbly and miserable with 1 to 3 kids already awake, and often already pouncing on me. I start the day with a need for immediate coffee. Then, slowly, I start meeting the ever-demanding desires of my children. Some days, I do better. I find if I do at least [...]


Evenflo Feeding Proflow Advanced Bottles

I am 99% sure I’m past the baby stage. But since 5 of my friends just gave birth within the past week (seriously, my facebook feed is newborn central!)

The Meaning of “Mommy”

Last night as I was falling asleep at 11:45, I heard a faint whimper come over the monitor…”Mommy. Mommy. Mommy.” And then back to silence. This happens a few times a night. At 18 months, my baby wakes and whimpers, calling softly to me. I know not to go in, that will just wake him [...]

Why Having 3 Kids is Awesome #MotivationalMonday

I’ve seen some articles pop up in my feed lately that mention how stressful it is to have 3 kids. Of course it’s stressful. But so was having 1 kid. And having a second was definitely stressful. But having 3 kids seems to be getting all the bad press. Now that we are (mostly) out [...]

March’s Family Adventure

This past weekend, we set out on our Family Adventure for March. We stayed closer to home this time and took a quick trip to Ocean City, Maryland. Since this winter has been cold, snowy, bitterly cold, and pretty much unbearable, we decided to go to a place that felt warm and summery. So, we [...]
