It’s that time of year! You know, when you go outside and you can’t feel your face. Even here in the Carolina’s, it gets down below freezing and I wonder why we don’t just move to Hawaii or some tropical beach somewhere. Unfortunately though for this mom, even when it’s 20 degrees outside, I still have to take my kids out and go to school, dance class, and the grocery store. Now that my bigger two are old enough to take their coats on and off themselves though, that part is a little easier, but having an eight...

I feel like we’re in three different stages right now with our kids. My big man is officially a big kid and doesn’t really need his mom anymore now that he’s almost seven. My older daughter is in the stage where she THINKS she doesn’t need me anymore, but she really still does then the baby is staring at her two older siblings with eyes wide and wishing she could be like them. That being said (and thanks to my friends at Silikids, MAM, b.box baby, & pediped for sharing some of their signature products to...

When I came across the Star from Afar, I was so excited to check it out. The day it showed up my doorstep to share with you all, I could hardly wait to start it with my kids. Having three young kids and wanting to instill in them the story of Jesus and why we celebrate this season is so important to me. I want my kids to grow up thinking of Christmas a Jesus’ birthday and being thankful for the gifts he’s given, but I also want them to have the traditions and fun memories that I had growing up too. Since my kids range from...

Tis’ the season! The lists have been set for a while now and the shopping is in full swing in our house.. we’re gearing up for our little babe’s first Christmas and as a family of five! With one more kiddo in the mix means an even longer Christmas list, so I’m relying on sweet deals from BJ’s Wholesale Club to help me check my items off my list.     BJ’s Top 10 Toys is sure to contain at least one thing on your kids’ lists this year. Our little lady has been watching the Olaf commercial...

  Our little lady just turned five months – HOORAY! I know, I know; I have yet to share her birth story or many pictures on here. Being a mommy of three has certainly had its challenges juggling different school schedules and activities, but we’ve also had quite the breastfeeding journey. Since she was born, nursing this third time around seemed to go so perfectly. She latched on right away, my milk came right in, and at her first checkup and one and two month checkups she gained perfectly. All of that perfection came...

Being a breastfeeding mom for the third time around, I have a pretty good idea on what I need versus what not to bother spending money on this time around. Luckily, my little lady has made our relationship pretty easy in that department. However, she hates to be covered up! Even though she hates having that piece of cloth over her face while she eats.. I mean honestly? Who WOULD enjoy that!? I still like to keep a nursing cover on hand for while we are out and about. You might remember be sharing what’s in my diaper bag several weeks...

Our summer days have been a little different than the usual poolside lounging from morning ’til night, long vacations on the beach, and cruising from one playdate to the next like it has been in the past. Summer with a newborn is a little bit different and before I leave my house even for just a 15 minute grocery run, I have to be sure I’m loaded and ready for any possible blow out diaper, throw up incident, or meltdown at any moment. I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse into my perfectly prepared diaper bag! Don’t...

Just having my third baby, I feel like I’m starting all over again considering my older two are four and six. I’ve had to put diapers and wipes back into the budget and start thinking about all those other baby...

Deciding which diaper route to take was a little harder the third time around than either of the other two times. When I was pregnant with LC, I really just did what other people I knew did.. with everything; especially diapers. Cloth diapering never really crossed my mind. Actually, I lied. It crossed my mind and after a quick internet search I thought, “No way!” and ran as far away from that topic as I possibly could. I thought cloth diapers was still the clothes pins and folded cloth and I didn’t find much telling...

I would say summer is officially here.. whether the calendar says so or not. It’s HOT. It’s literally sweltering lately here in the Carolina’s, so we haven’t gotten much outdoor time in other than a few short trips to the pool lately. Today, my little lady and I had some fun on the trampoline while her baby sister napped and big brother read some books. This girl can jump… and she HAS to, to get out some of that energy she has built up from spending so much time indoors in a last ditch effort to stay somewhat...
