I was a stay-at-home mom once upon a time.  I would take my kids to the park, shoot the sh*t with the other moms, and pretend that my life was amazing and pretty close to perfect.  Oh yes – I pretended to be a member of the perfect mom club.  Well, now that I’m a […]...

Life is full of sweet moments and as a mother, I found that many of the moments happen within my own family.  We recently went on a camping trip with my kids and my boyfriend and his kids and parents.  I hadn’t been camping in a long time and was looking forward to new experiences. […]...

As a mom of 3 boys, the day can really fly by quickly if there isn’t a schedule in place.  Before I moved to California, I had somewhat of a schedule.  I tried to be consistent with serving meals at the same time every day, giving snacks at the same time every day, and picking […]...

Here are a few tips from a “learning” mom of 3 boys on grocery shopping.  Do you have any additional tips? I did not receive any product or compensation for writing this post. It’s just from one mother to everyone watching – lol! All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine....

We are working hard on potty training Dallen, who just turned 4.  I told him today that we were going to teach him how to potty train and he was going to be wearing big boy underwear.  I also told him that if he went in the potty, he would get M&Ms as a treat […]...

In our house, we have Desitin and Hydrocortisone Cream, both of which are kept in the “diaper basket.”  My almost 2 year old is also learning to brush his teeth – with the fruity Oral-B toothpaste – ya know with bears and Thomas the Train? I think he sucks more of it than he actually […]...

I have 3 boys and it’s interesting to see each of them go through similar stages and reactions.  Righ now, we are dealing with the “Eject Food” stage with our almost 2 year old.  If he doesn’t like something, there is no politely spitting it into a napkin or putting it in the trash or even […]...

With both my 5 year old and 3 year old, I nursed them until they were 2 (tapering off to naps and nighttime nursings) and I was pregnant with the next child.  My youngest is almost 18 months old (and I am NOT pregnant), but am still nursing him.  I loved nursing him when he was […]...

I remember being sick when I was a kid.  My mom or stepmom would bring me hot chicken noodle soup, give me medicine, make me Jell-O, tuck me in bed, take my temperature, feel my forehead, and let me rest with peace and quiet.  Well….that was when I was a kid! On Wednesday, my allergies […]...

This evening, I took my 3 boys to the KFC Drive-Thru to order a family chicken meal.  I pulled up to the drive-thru ordering box and began to say “Hi, I’d like a…” and before I knew it the words “TACO PLEASE!” were coming out of my 5 year old’s mouth.  He had rolled down […]...

My oldest had his first day of Kindergarten yesterday. I think I was more nervous about him going to Kindergarten then he was! He had a blast! He was telling us all about it on the way home from dinner last night (and then…and then…and then..). It was really cute! Here are some pics of […]...

Today was my oldest’s first day of Kindergarten. I remember reading other blog posts about parents who had a hard time taking their children to school and how they felt happy and sad. My initial thoughts were, “he’s just going to Kindergarten. He is totally ready!” Well, this part of the picture is true. What […]...

OK, so I’m going to take a minute to vent. I’m getting so tired of reading the chocolate covered, sugar coated memoirs of so many moms out there (sometimes myself included). My head hurts so bad right now and with every LOUD and obnoxious cry that comes from my tired 3 year old, it gets […]...

I usually don’t swear around my kids. However, today I dropped something on the floor and the words “Son of a bi*!@” slipped out of my mouth. Then, out of the mouth of my 3 year old, as he was heading out to play in the backyard, I heard the same exact words. Oh crud!!!! […]...

My 5 year old has recently discovered that boys and girls and mommies and daddies have different body parts. Growing up, my parents had nicknames for these parts (a girl had a Poochie – still can’t get past this one, especially when they came out with a dog named that – and a boy had […]...

I remember when I was working outside the home at a full-time job, I didn’t have to stop and think about what day of the week it was or even date of the month it was. I could tell you as soon as you asked…even before you asked! Today, I found myself emailing a fellow […]...

I’m so glad that our boys love their daddy so much, however, tonight I had an epiphany. I think it’s so adorable that our 1 year old says “DADDYYY!!” And then my husband responds back with “SAMMYYY!” Then I realized it (just kind of clicked like a light a going on) – he’s never said […]...

I love blogging, but it can be quite time-consuming and sometimes I feel as though I’m neglecting my kids. I have taken more control recently and narrowed down the times of day that I work on my blog – whether it’s posting reviews, searching for new products, emailing other mommy bloggers, earning money via my […]...

It always amazes me how much I forget about each stage in a child’s life (even though I have 3 kids). You forget about the discomfort you may have experienced during pregnancy. You forget about the “true” pains of labor. You forget about each of the stages of development and pure curiosity your child goes […]...

Every morning, I make my boys some chocolate milk and cereal. I usually put the newer containers of milk in the refrigerator door. I went to pull out the milk and noticed it felt a little heavier than usual but didn’t think much about it. I looked at the expiration date and it read June […]...
