Family Fun Summer Series: Salute to America

Family

It’s not everyday we get to take the kiddos to see a concert and fireworks. This weekend my hubby and I did just that. For our “Family Fun Summer Series,” we thought the kids would enjoy it. Besides, it was free! Well, actually our tax dollars fund these types of events. But, whatever. The town hosts different […]

Baby o

I don’t know where the time went. After a brutal winter, the months have been flying by. It’s the last week of school and the kids are so excited. It’s a good thing my hubby reminded me about getting something for the kids’ teachers. I was able to run out yesterday to pick up something […]

How Many Boo Boos Can a Child Get?

boo boo

It seems like every other day Princess needs a bandaid for a boo boo. Sometimes I’d get a phone call from someone at school informing me of a scrape on her arm or leg. The teacher usually would start off by saying, “She’s ok.” Then she’d fill me in on all the details. I’d say nine out […]

Disney’s Maleficent: Princess Aurora Inspired Twistback

Disney's Maleficient

If you ask Princess who her favorite Disney Princess is, she’d probably say Aurora. The other day all the girls were asked to dress as Princesses, and all the boys as pirates. I resurrected Baby O’s Halloween costume, which actually still fits. I wanted to recreate Aurora’s twistback, as seen in Disney’s Maleficent.   I […]

Do you think Stay-At-Home Moms Have it Easy?

IMG_8424

I can’t front. There are times when I fantasize about being a stay-home-mom. How hard can it be? All you have to do is feed them, change their diapers, and put them down for nap time. You also have to make sure they don’t hurt themselves or destroy the house. Think that’s easy? Think again! […]

Baby O

The day began like most Saturday mornings – breakfast followed by cleaning the house. The plan was to then head outside and enjoy the nice warm summer like weather. But, the kids wanted to have fun being pulled around the house in Princess’s Doc McStuffins wagon instead. Baby O had a kick out of it. I […]

With Father’s Day just around the corner, Princess wanted to make an awesome Father’s Day card her Dad will remember forever. Store bought cards are great, but she wanted to add a bit more of a personal touch. Besides, it was a great way to keep her busy. She loves crafts! I have a playlist […]

I’ll just do a simple braid to fulfill her request. I may even get a little fancy and braid it off to the side like […]

First Day at Dance Class

Dance class

I’ve been meaning to sign Princess up for dance class for a while. But, held off because I wanted her to focus on swimming lessons. Now that she’s getting older, I figured now would be a good time to add another activity to the mix. Plus, she’s been asking us about joining for the past […]

DIY: Easy Way to Make Non-Toxic Kids Paint

Princess

I wouldn’t consider myself a crafter. In fact, I’d say that I’m craft challenged. But, when I heard that you can actually make your own (DIY) non-toxic kids paint, I jumped at the opportunity. I found a few recipes online. But as with many cooking recipes, I had to put my own little spin on […]

Celebrating Earth Day in Style

It’s the day after Earth Day, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to write about how Princess celebrated the day – in style. Sometimes I feel like a mom to a teenager, rather than a preschooler. Princess has been wanting to dress herself lately, which is great. I love that she’s becoming more independent. But, it can […]

Happy Siblings Day!

happy siblings day

When I first heard about today being “Siblings Day,” I was like ‘word?’ I immediately texted my brother and sister, who both had no idea there is such a day. It seems fitting to write this post to not only celebrate being a sibling, but to also my two little munchkins. Last year Princess was […]

Is it possible to be your daughter’s best friend and strict disciplinarian?

grandma

Back in the day my friends and I would often plan these extravagant excursions. Okay, I admit our plans were pretty lame. But to us, they were super exciting. It consisted of things like walking to the mall. I know it sounds pretty boring, but it wasn’t to us. Those walks were literally like five […]
