Wow it’s really been a while since I posted up here and I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long!

In all honesty I have been in a weird space lately, now I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’s postpartum depression, but I definitely have been in a little rut! I’m just super exhausted and unmotivated, which is why I haven’t been up here! Continue reading

Liam’s Separation Anxiety

Liam is 8 months today and boy are things starting to get hard again.

Even though a lot of things are easier now like feedings, baths, and sleeping one thing that’s changed is how Liam reacts when he see’s me or when I leave  a room. I know all babies go through this I even went through it with Alex, but that didn’t make me anymore prepared for it. Continue reading

Preparing Alex for Baby #2

IMG_1314

A lot of changes have been happening in our household lately with a new baby on the way, and sometimes I have to remind myself that even though it’s a big change for us, it has to feel like an even bigger change for Alex. He is use to being the only child, and now he won’t be. He is use to having mommy’s undivided attention, but now mommy needs extra rest. A lot of things are different already, and the change will become even greater once the baby arrives. So I sat down and began to call around and ask friends and family about different ways they prepared their child/children for a new baby and I came across some pretty good strategies which I put to use.

20 Things to do Before baby is Born!

As I sit here 25 weeks pregnant with nothing really done, I realize that I need to start-up a list of things that should to be done before baby #2 arrives. When I was pregnant with my first son I was totally unprepared all they way around, and I was also a first time mother so I didn’t know what to expect, but now I feel more seasoned in motherhood. I know how hectic things can be before and once baby arrives, and I refused to be unprepared this time around. IMG_1272 Continue reading

CHORES for my 3 year old

Installing healthy habits into my son’s little mind is something that I live for! So of course I couldn’t wait until the time came to get him started with CHORES. Yes, CHORES a word hated all over the world by both adults and children, but also a very necessary word! Growing up in my early childhood days my mom did all the chores (because she is such a perfectionist, and wants everything a “certain way”), then when I hit my preteen years she started trying to make me do chores and it just didn’t go over well! Eventually once I grew up I understood all the values and things she was trying to teach me, but I also knew that I was going to start giving my children chores early, so by the time they are preteens it will be something they are use to and I won’t have to argue with my 12 year old over washing the dirty dishes everyday.
