Protect Your Kids’ Eyes with Real Kids Shades

I think sometimes we forget as adults that kids' eyes need protection from the sun just as much as ours do.  For me, I'd quite easily forget, but I have a husband who has eyes that are very photosensitive and it's made me much more aware about his comfort- and that of our children.  I've ...

Come talk about health tips for our families at the #CDCFlu Twitter Party March 5th

I don't know about you but having kids also means having germs, in excess.  Three kids in school just means more chances for more germs!  Typically, February is the month my family is sickest- somehow we escaped that this year, although all three kids had pneumonia over Christmas.  I'm always up for finding new ways ...

Spread a Little Love Today…and Every Day

// _ // ]]>_ // ]]> Happy Valentine's Day, friends.  Today is a day of love and kindness, friendship, romance.  It's a day that some call wonderful and others hate.  I myself have called it "Stupid Cupid" day more than once.  I realized I was looking at it wrong.  Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about having someone ...

Aquaphor was one of the first brand names I remember other moms recommending on a message board when we were trying to conceive our first child.  It's so great, they said.  So versatile.  Great quality.  So obviously, as time progressed and I got pregnant, and started preparing for baby, I purchased some of Aquaphor's Baby Healing ...

This is most definitely how to bathe a baby.

Did you ever stop to think about how to bathe a baby? I kind of always thought I did, but when it came time to actually bathe one of my own, things were so strange and foreign to me- and to my husband. We fumbled around...and the kids hated baths for a long time. Knowing ...

Love LEGO bricks? You’ll LOVE LEGO’s YouTube Channel! ($1000 LEGO Giveaway) #LEGOChannel

One of my favorite childhood pastimes was building with LEGO blocks.  I'm so happy to say that all three of my children seem to have inherited my love of LEGO blocks, and each spends time regularly playing with them.  We've had Quatros, Duplos, and "regular" LEGOS, we've had sets and we've had individual pieces. We've ...

How to make a Faith Kit

faith kit instructions

A few weeks ago during the children's message at church, the kids each received a Faith Kit.  I'd actually never seen these before but I think they are a cute idea- and my kids seem to have really made some connections and have an understanding of the different components, so I thought I'd share with ...

Planning for what lies ahead- Long Term Care

There are topics that are anything but pleasant to discuss with your loved ones.  It's not easy, nor comfortable, nor fun to discuss the "down the road" possibilities.  I'm grateful to my parents for having these conversations about long term care, and communicating their wishes to me and explaining to us WHY these  things are ...
