ABCs of Summer with Kids
July 26, 2018 4:08 pm | by
Fill your summer with FUN! Make your own ABC checklist of activities to do with your kids.

Are you trying to make the most out of your summer with your kids? Do you find yourself stuck in a slump, constantly doing the same activities? A friend of mine posted her ABCs of summer list. For each letter of the alphabet, there is a corresponding place to visit or activity to try. It also creates a fun checklist of things to do. You and your kids will enjoy creating your own list and crossing things off your list. You can even make a fun photo album at the end of the summer to commemorate your summer. Here’s my list

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday — one that’s filled with lots of sweets and love! During this time of year, I always try to make a festive craft with my little one that we can display around the house and admire! This year for Valentine’s Day, we decided to make DIY Tissue Paper Hearts that look like stained glass! This is something that’s super easy to make, great for any age and adds so much color into our house. Aside from this craft being a bonding experience, it also promotes fine motor skill use and independence. Here’s how

Real Mom Talk: Avoiding Burnout
April 27, 2015 7:18 pm | by

After reviewing my resume during a job interview, the interviewer said, “You have been a personal chef, nurse, coach, financial advisor, janitor, photographer, videographer, life coach, counselor, and chauffeur?” And I replied, “Yes, I’m a mother.” That’s not actually true. It’s supposed to be an ironic joke showcasing the multi-faceted roles that mothers take on daily. When I had my identical twin girls, all of my instincts kicked in and I felt like I was born to be a mother. Now, many years and children later, I wouldn’t mind running away to the beach for a couple days. I call

 
Real Mom Talk: Making Friends
April 14, 2015 6:29 pm | by

When my twins turned 2, I realized I was experiencing burn out. Like my parents, my children consumed everything. I cooked only what they ate, all of our outings were based around their naps and instead of going to the movies or tapas restaurants, we would go to the zoo or park. It was wonderful to have kids, but I was forgetting to take care of myself. I really needed a girls night. I wanted to talk about something or someone other than Dora. I spent the last two years indoors investing in my kids, which is awesome, but I

December 16, 2014 8:30 pm | by

When it comes to traveling with a baby/toddler, I think I’ve become quite the pro at it. Recently, we traveled 25+ hours, by car — with an energetic 2 year old. What an experience that was. With the holidays in full swing, I know many of you will be busy traveling with your own children. Here are a few helpful tips to make getting to your destination a little smoother.  Create a “Fun Box.” This was a lifesaver on our trip. I picked up a small plastic basket from the store and filled it with things that were fun like

 
Real Mom Talk: Memorial Day
May 20, 2014 11:59 am | by

Memorial Day is a holiday in which we reflect upon those who have served for our country, especially those who have gave their lives for our freedom. With my husband being active duty in the United States Marine Corps, this holiday holds a special place in my heart.  Here in the states, we tend to forget the actual meaning of this holiday. It’s fun to have a day off work to jump start the summer festivities, but it’s also important to reflect upon this holiday and celebrate the true meaning behind it. I’m sharing with you a few fun memorial

 
Real Mom Talk: Celebrate Summer
July 9, 2013 9:03 am | by

Summer: the word evokes memories of long hot days filled with sprinklers, bike rides, day camp, and ice cream cones. And although the season may be reduced to mere nostalgia for us grown-ups, that doesn’t mean it has to lose its magic for the kiddos! Beat boredom with some of the activities below, before the lazy days of summer pass by! Take advantage of what your community has to offer. Many smaller municipalities offer summer concerts, movies in the park, kid’s fishing derbies, and other family-friendly events for the community. Check your town’s website or newspaper for a calendar of
