About 6 months ago, during a sleepover with her cousins, my daughter wanted to watch the new Beauty and the Beast movie. Considering the cartoon was one of many Disney staples from my childhood, I figured, why not. What I hadn’t expected was a trail of nightmares to follow.Continue Reading
We recently made the road trip from the Detroit area to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our main reason for making this trek across the East Coast was simply cost. Four plane tickets during winter break was really going to hit our pockets hard. So, after making the 21 hour drive to and from Fort Lauderdale, we made it out alive. Plus, I’m sharing some do’s and don’ts of road tripping with little ones.Continue Reading
As a mom and especially as a blogger, I’m always looking to capture the great picture. Whether the kids are hugging, reading books, or have genuine belly laugh, this Momma doesn’t want to miss a thing. But, if i’m sitting there observing through the lense of my camera, am I really present for the moment? On the other hand, I like to look back at photos of them when they were young. So, what’s better about those moments, to take pictures of them or be present in them?
Recently, I tested myself. It was just an average night and the kids needed a bath. My husband offered to do this bath this time around. Usually we tag team bath time. I get one kid done and out then he slides in for the other. But, I wasn’t going to turn down the offer so I let him take over bath time.Continue Reading
Don’t worry, my children won’t be tearing apart the store shelves, that is not what I mean. I’m usually so wrapped up in order and schedule that I forget about fun. So, I’m learning to become the yes mom.
Generally speaking, we would stick to a pretty tight schedule. Breakfast, school drop-off, grocery shopping, then back to the house for some play time. Lunch is followed by nap time, then school pick-up and dinner prep. By the time bedtime hits, and we are ready for the next day, I realize my only day off with my kids has flown by.Continue Reading
Generally speaking, I tend to do most of my shopping online. Since having kids, it’s just easier. I know my size and if I don’t like it, I can return it easily. After having kids, I also hate fitting rooms. Not only do I not have the additional time to try on outfits, but I never enjoy viewing all those angles in the 7 mirrors that are apparently necessary.
Recently, I needed an outfit in a pinch. I didn’t plan ahead and had to quickly run out to the store and find something cute. I tried to sneak away but my daughter gave me her “mom, please take me with you eyes” and I just couldn’t say no.Continue Reading

Normally, when you hear the phrase ‘when history repeats itself’, it’s used in a negative connotation. However, in my case, it’s turning out in the best possible way.
Most people assume in order to have a built-in best friend, you need to have a sister-sister or brother-brother relationship. We do get comments, regarding our kids, on how great it is that we have one of each, but no one ever says anything about them being friends forever. I know they will be… because if they are anything like my past, history will repeat itself.
Let me explain…Continue Reading
