Potty training, or more specifically, toots. What would be a better topic for a mama to get back into writing about? We are most of the way there when it comes to potty training. She's got the concept and most of the time she does a great job. Lately we've been having some "false alarms" … Continue reading Oh, potty training…
Being a mom, I do a LOT that I never imagined I would do.... and usually it seems like it goes unnoticed and is not appreciated. My husband does thank me and tries to be helpful when he can, which is awesome, however I feel like no one in my immediate life quite knows exactly … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Feeling Appreciated
I kind of feel like I have been slacking on my blogging lately.... or have I? After spending some time thinking about why I blog, I have come to realize that really, I blog when I need an outlet... when I feel like I am cut off from adult interaction, and feel like I need to … Continue reading Why Do YOU Blog?
Whining is certainly something that is not tolerated in our house. I have worked really hard on teaching Aadelyn to use her words when something isn't going her way. I realize that she is only 2 years old, however, she understands what we say and I believe that teaching her early on will be far … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Using your words.

I recently visited our local Trader Joe's to scout out some vegan ingredients and stock up on healthier snack options for my family. It's about a 25 minute ride, so not terrible for toddler and baby, but I don't go very often because I have tons of other options that are much closer. I go … Continue reading Here’s to YOU! Super nice lady who works at Trader Joe’s.
Now that it's been about a month that I have been a sahm I am realizing the challenges that come along with it. Not that I thought everything would be sunshine and rainbows all the time but until I was elbows deep in this new life of mine I didn't fully know what to expect. … Continue reading Yea, apparently sometimes I’m ‘that’ Mom…
I never really thought about when to expect my toddler to stop taking what we say at face value. She's pretty quick so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this weekend it happened. If you have been following along you probably know that she is a natural little comedienne. She didn't skip a beat … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings…Reading Between the Lines
