Although this post has been generously sponsored by Garnier Whole Blends, the opinions and language are my own. I always figured that being a parent would be stressful, but lately it feels like I have significantly underestimated just how stressful it would be. While I do my best to embrace the chaos of motherhood, the past several months have stretched my limits
My experience with two under two was short, compared to some, but it was still challenging! My girls are 20 months apart. Currently WeeBee is just over 1 and Bee is just under 3. Although, having two under two was a blur, I can still remember how difficult things could be. But, to be honest I enjoyed it (most of it), I wanted it this way, and I have nothing else to compare
Congratulations on your bundle of joy! There are many things to think of when preparing for a baby, but one of the most exciting can be designing the nursery. When I found out I was pregnant with our first, I immediately started thinking about nursery design. I knew I wanted it to have a designer look, but I also wanted it to be warm and cozy, with some personal touches.
Mother's Day is around the corner but it doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. I think most moms would agree that it's not about the monetary value given on this special day, but the thought behind the gift. A beautiful handmade card, a homemade breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, or even time to herself in a hammock with a book. Take a look at these 15 Thoughtful
Families are weird. Families are wonderful. Families come in all shapes and sizes. One of the best lessons I learned growing up is that family is about so much more then blood, it is about love and friendships. My parents got divorced when I was pretty young, and to be honest I don't really remember much around that time. I am sure that it was a difficult
I cannot believe Mother's Day is almost here. The Canada's Mom Show will be springing into town on Mother's Day! With lots of FREE parking at the International Centre (Hall 6) there will be lots of food demonstrations, entertainment, a fashion show and more. That is not all. There is also a kids zone with fun-filled activities for kids. Perfect to keep them happy while you get
Mother's Day is fast approaching. Every year it seems like the past year has just flown by. Now that I am a mother myself I truly appreciate Mother's Day and I have been going out of my way the last few years to make them extra special for my mom. My daughter and I usually create something special to give her as a Grandmother/Mother's Day gift. But with busy lives and a lower
Before I became a mother, I thought all babies just breastfed. I mean a baby needs to eat so they must know how to do it, right? Ha, ha, ha, oh how wrong I was. For some moms and babies breastfeeding does come easily, for other moms there are bumps along the way. Between my 3 kids I have been breastfeeding for almost 3.5 years and counting, and have encountered
Over the past 5 years I have dealt with more puke then I care to talk about. Becoming a mother is not for the faint of stomach! From morning sickness to motion sickness Moms deal with it all. Overall I would consider my morning sickness mild, it was smells like diesel trucks or buses that would have me running for the nearest bush. So as long as I was careful to avoid them
It is hard to believe that summer is over! Back in May I remember thinking of all the things I wanted to accomplish this summer before Roo (baby #3) arrived in September. Everything from trips and activities I wanted to do with the kids to projects around the house we wanted to take on. Well the summer of 2014 didn't disappoint in creating memories that are made to last.
When you are pregnant there are lots of resources to talk to you about the changes your body will go through - books, websites, stories from friends. But after you actually have the baby, the focus is all on how to take care of baby, feed baby, and putt baby to sleep. What about mom? Having kids is such a pain in the back - literally! Yes you may not be carrying the baby
You know the saying – “Never say Never”. Be careful, you don’t know when the words you say will come back to bite you. Well I can be pretty opinionated at times (shhh don’t tell my family) and have over the years declared things that I would NEVER do. Some I have kept – for example I will NEVER wear leggings as pants, they are leggings designed to go under a dress or very
