Why I love the personalized touch

This post is sponsored by Stuckonyou. However all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!   Yes, I am that mom that personalizes all of my children’s things! Well not so much with Oakland because he’s reached that age where it’s not that cool to have a personalized backpack or t-shirt. I definitely will put Ainsley and Leighton’s name all over everything for as long as I can!     I especially love when school rolls around because I get real excited…

What I’ve learned from having 2 girls.

This post was sponsored by Cubbie Lee Toys. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.   I honestly never thought I would have two girls. Jerod and I thought we’d only have two children. That wasn’t the case. Ainsley gave us a run for our money. She’s a feisty, loving, red-head! She is super hard headed but has a beautiful, tender heart. She doesn’t like confrontation at all and will run and hide instead talking about what she did…

Natural Ways to Ease Baby Gas Pain!

    Thank you Mommy’s Bliss for sponsoring this post! All opinions are 100% my own!     Your baby is crying and you can’t figure out why. You’ve ruled out a dirty diaper, she’s been fed, and she’s not sleepy… It could be her tummy. Leighton recently went through this. She would finish her bottle but would be uneasy. She’d cry for a minute and then stop. I could just tell her little tummy was hurting her. After I fed…

A busy mom’s cleaning schedule!

Thank you so much Grab Green for sponsoring this post! All opinions are 100% my own.     Cleaning is something I am not a fan of. There are a select few who might really enjoy it. I, on the other hand do not. When I taught 1st grade I was not home all day and would have to pick up after the kids were in bed and on the weekends. We had a cleaning lady come once a month…

How your children can RAISE LOVE #forRMHC

    We are called to be examples to our young. Being an example can mean a lot of different things. To be an example you need to model what is right. Your actions speak volumes to the little ones around you. I am so grateful to be a mother. With that title comes a lot of responsibility. I want to instill good values and morals in my children. I want to show them what it means to love others .…

New seasons are hard.

Well school starts on Tuesday for my little guy. He’s headed to 2nd grade and I am not headed back to the classroom. I wrote this post in March and announced I wasn’t going to go back to teaching after  7 years. This decision seemed like the right one for our family of 5. I had always wanted to stay home with my kids and be that mom that was able to attend every field trip and be present in the classroom but my…
