Let me start this by saying… my baby likes to EAT! She would eat all day if I let her. About 30 minutes, I hear the little hands banging on the pantry door, then her little voice asking for more “cheeyeeos!” My little lady is happiest with some snacks on her plate and her belly gettin’ full!   If your toddler is like mine, you’re also right in the middle of the lovely world of terrible 2’s and a food fight and flying dishes is a normal occurrence at the table. Lucky for you mom’s, this is...

It’s been good long while since you’ve heard anything from me. While I’ll give you more on that and what’s been soaking up my time the past several months later, I’m super excited to be back and partner with our friends at Star from Afar to share something so special for this Easter season! You may remember a few years ago hearing about the Star from Afar and I’m sure you’ve spotted my pictures on Instagram during the holiday season too. I was so thrilled to partner with them again and even more...

As a mom, I know one thing all of us can relate to one another on is always wanting to do what is safest for our babies. Sometimes when it comes to safety, views will differ on different topic and that’s okay.. everyone parents in whatever way fits for them and their lifestyle, but one thing is certain.. we all want what is best for our precious bundles. Every year, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA,) sponsors National Baby Safety Month in September. The month-long event is meant to increase consumer awareness...

We’ve been back to school for several weeks now and the never-ending chore of packing your kids lunches has begun. Since my husband and I both despise packing lunches, we’re trying a new approach this year and getting the kids involved! I let them come with me to pick out their favorite back-t0-school lunchbox items at BJ’s Wholesale Club. This way, they’re getting what they like. The assortment of allergy friendly and healthy items is endless and when we shop in bulk, I only have to go once every 3-4 weeks. With...

Well its official.. school is in session here at the Crowe’s Nest! Our little man started second grade yesterday and our girl heads to Kindergarten tomorrow! Where has the time gone!? Both over the years and this summer.. it flew by! I know we start back earlier than others, so I wanted to share something fun we started this year in prep for heading back to the books so you guys can use the idea in your homes in the upcoming weeks! In an effort to get into routine around here (and get our son reading to us nightly,) I thought we...

We are in full on back-to-school mode over here! We start back earlier than most schools in our area, so we’re gearing up for our last week of freedom. I got a head start on school supplies this year, so we’ve been done with that for a while now at least. I had a few last minute things to pick up today before our lists were complete. Since we’re buying supplies for two kiddos this year (helllloooo Kindergarten for our little lady!!) I wanted to really make sure I was getting the best deals on those long lists we had...

  Summer is in full swing and if your house is like me (please tell me it is?!) You hear every five seconds those dreaded six words… “Mommy, can I have a snack?” Like, literally my kids don’t want to eat meals. Ever. They just want to snack.. ALL.DAY.LONG. So.. in an effort to keep our summer a little more interesting, I came up with a few Summertime Snack Hack’s for Mom’s to switch things up a bit featuring a few of our favorite’s from BJ’s Wholesale Club!   Want to give your...

Our Disney vacation planning is in full swing! We’re headed to the most magical place on earth in just over a month and to say we’re excited would be an understatement! With all the excitement though has come A LOT of planning for this mom! Traveling with three kiddos ages 7, 4, and 1 means being prepared for anything and EVERYTHING. A few weeks ago, we had some friends over to celebrate our vacation planning for a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate with games, treats, & goodies for the kids while us moms took to Pinterest...

  Having little ones, there are so many things to take into consideration when it comes to how we raise them. We worry about how much time they spend on their iPads, what bad words they’re learning at school, or how well they’re going to on their test on Friday. We worry about their safety and health and whether they’re getting along with their friends. Then when they do well on that test or play well in their soccer game, we reward them. Sound familiar? A few weeks ago, I attended Charlotte Parent’s most...

When our sweet girl started losing weight around four months old after a glowing first few months of weight gain and breastfeeding bliss; this mommy went through a messy season of guilt. When our pediatrician told me I had to supplement to help her weight loss issues, I obliged.. reluctantly, but  I went with it. After several weeks of exclusive pumping while nursing before naps and bedtime and formula, I knew I couldn’t keep up. We saw a huge change in not only her weight, but her behavior and sleeping too, so I knew after everything...
