Editable Chore Cards for Kids

Today I have some Editable Cleaning Chore Cards for Kids for you that cover the entire house!

I was so inspired by the response that I […]

The 4 Stages of Teaching Kids to Clean

Essentially, I believe there are 4 Stages of Teaching Kids to Clean. For me, it’s been a natural progression from picking up their toys to harder kid’s chores like scrubbing toilets. Recently, I’ve been increasing my kids’ chore lists. When I introduced the Bathroom Cleaning Kit for Kids and the Free Printable Bathroom Cleaning Checklist for […]

On Due Dates and Miscarriages

I knew the day was approaching. Circled in red on my calendar, it was a constant reminder of what wouldn’t be. My momma heart was bracing itself for the day’s impact. The funny thing about calendar days: you can’t skip over them no matter how much you want to. The youngest reader in the house […]

Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

So. Jonah started playing baseball this month. While I played softball when I was young, the role of a baseball mom is definitely a new one for me. In just the three short weeks that Jonah has played, my routine has been thrown topsy-turvy and I’m all discombobulated. I also have a few confessions… Fall […]

Permission To Feel

The Mother’s Day commercials that usually leave me saying “Aww” have left a bittersweet taste in my mouth this year. For the first time, I understand what so many other women feel about just […]

Failure to Trive {Part 2}

We’ve been walking this Failure to Thrive journey for five months now. Let me tell you, it’s not very fun. What started out as shock and denial that there could be anything wrong with our active boy, quickly changed to acceptance and answer-seeking. We’ve been to feeding therapy. Did you even know there was such […]

Taste Test

Each day that unfolds is like biting into a new chocolate truffle and hoping for the caramel filling. But…what if you don’t get the caramel filling? […]

Breathing Room

When I was a little girl, I would take a big, deep breath and sink to the bottom of the pool. I wondered just how long I could last before springing to the surface gasping for air. Truth be told, I’m an asthmatic, so it wasn’t very long before my lungs felt like they were […]

The Wall of “Fine”

I got to hold a newborn baby this week. I know, I know, I have a baby of my own, but still…newborns make me weak in the knees. My sweet friend, whom I actually wrote about before, had a baby. A much anticipated and prayed for baby. Oh, the joy of answered prayers! As I […]
