Why Body Patience After Pregnancy Is So Important

We all know that pregnancy alters our bodies quite a bit (and that’s an understatement!). I mean, we carry and grow a little bean into a bigger bean for 9 months, give birth to it, and stretch our bodies in ways we never knew we could. I always say that those stretch marks I received in my pregnancies were, ‘earning my stripes’ of motherhood (and yes, I do believe that they are truly beautiful). But thankfully, all the extra unattractive weight gain and discomfort that comes along with having a baby doesn’t last forever, even if it feels like it! A lot […]

A Letter To Husbands & Fathers: Why We Can’t Do It Without You

I usually write posts about mom life, my journey as a mother, and my babies latest and greatest shenanigans (and trust me, I’ve got plenty more to share!). But today, I want to do something a little different, or, a lot different, actually. You usually see me make little comments about my goofy husband here and there, poking fun at him, but today, I want to talk to you a little bit more in depth about him, and husbands, fathers, brothers, and the men in our lives in general. Something that you don’t see a lot on mom blogs is the […]

Top 5 Parenting Hacks You Need Start Doing Now

Whether you’re a new parent or parent pro, you know how exhausting, difficult, and stressful everyday life can be. Not only do you have to ensure your little beans are taken care of at all hours of the day (and no diapers have been flung across the room… again), but you also have to balance a life outside of your family that is based around work, friends, and relationships. Believe me when I say that having a household with a toddler, a newborn, and of course, the (needy) husband, is exhausting! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a mom, but […]

Important Lessons I’ve Learned As A Mother

I think all of us baby-obsessed mama’s can agree that motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting, and incredible blessing a woman could receive. Not only the journey of getting pregnant, the incredible 9 month pregnancy, or even giving birth, but the actual opportunity of raising, teaching, and caring for your own little baby. But of course, as with anything, motherhood is definitely a huge learning process with a lot of ups and downs. I only ever see mommy bloggers talking about only the good parts of motherhood and all the happy moments, but I never see anybody talk about the struggles, or […]

6 Easy Ways To Save Money When You’re Expecting

We all know that when we signed up to be parents, it was going to a lot of work (and that’s an understatement). There was going to be sleepless nights full of frustration, lots of tantrums (not just from kids), endless cups of coffee, and a lot of, “Was I really ready for this?” contemplating. But what most of us didn’t realize when we were pregnant is how expensive being a parent could really be. I mean, we had a bit of an idea that it was going to be a decent amount of money to buy a sturdy crib, […]

Fun & Educational DIY Craft Ideas For Toddlers

Okay, so we all know it’s important for kids to be creative and express themselves from a very young age. I’ve encouraged every one of my kids since they were born to express who they are through different activities, such as dancing, drawing, music, or even Play-Doh (old school now, right?). It is so important that your child does this from a young age to not only give them them the courage to express who they are as they grow up, keep them inspired and motivated, but also to help them develop a fun and happy lifestyle where they are […]
