5 Ways For Mom To Take A Break

5-ways-for-mom-to-take-a-break

  I love being a mom. I really do. But sometimes I just need a break. I can tell when I am starting to get over tired or over stressed. Little things that normally do not bother me, start to agitate me. It is not good for my kids to have a stressed out mom and it is not good for me.  I am on maternity leave so I am always with at least one of the kids, so it is not

  Here is what life looks like with 3 kids: 5am - Woken up by the baby who wants to nurse.  Feed her and sneak in a few more precious minutes of sleep 7am - Woken  up by my 4 year old who tells me it is time to get his 2 year old brother out of the crib 8am - Make everyone breakfast, and then spend the next 30 minutes asking the kids to EAT their

We try to do learning activities with him on the road but sometimes the day slips by and before we know it

A guest post from L.W. Heading to the Maple Leaf Monster Jam for the first time a few years ago, I was absolutely floored by the whole experience.  All of my expectations and biases of the whole Monster Truck culture were thrown to the floor. The energy of the crowd, the announcers, and the roadies, lead to a night of bone rattling adrenaline, and no-nonsense fun.  We are

tassimo-t65-review

There are very few adults out there that don't enjoy a cup of coffee now and then, or maybe even 3 cups... before 9am.  But hey, we don't judge.  While I don't drink a pot by myself, I do enjoy a cup now and then.  However my craving for coffee is rarely enough motivation to get me to brew a pot for myself.  With our traditional coffee maker I am never sure how to scale down,

For 4 years I was a "Boy Mom" and my world was filled with cars, trucks and lots of noise.  When we found out we were expecting baby #3 I just assumed it would be another boy.  Boys were what I knew, boys were what I was used to, boys are what my Husband and I make.  So when Baby Roo arrived on a September Sunday Morning and the midwife said "It's a Girl" I was excited and

I remember back to my pre-kid days, back when you know everything about parenting without actually have ever done it.  Looking at all the new baby gear that was on the market now compared to when my little sister was a baby in the mid 90's and thinking "Why do parents need all this stuff?!?"  At the time I couldn't imagine why you would need a video monitor, after all my
