My son, our little 2 year old, our wee kind spirited little man..... does not want my kisses, hugs and love. I knew this stage would come, at what, like age 7? Not this soon.
If anyone knows me, knows that I am a ball of mush. An emotional affectionate person who tells everyone dear to her that she loves them. This whole "No Mommy" business sucks big time. Not to be dramatic, but I thought being a Mom would be hard, but not this hard. I just want to love the crap out
Happiness does not come from my husband, family or friends. It does not come from a new patio set or new summer dress. Happiness does not depend on anyone or anything. It is a state of mind.
You choose what brings you joy in life. You also have the choice to get rid of the things that don't. You choose to surround yourself with the people you love and lift you up. You also have the choice to sit back if those people no longer bring light into your life.
▪️You Aren’t Alone▪️
I’ve heard about it and experienced it all myself. You get engulfed with your little ones so deeply, you loose the sight of what makes you, YOU. But the truth is, you are someone new. It’s embracing the new you and finding pride within in it. Whatever that may be to you
. You aren’t alone. You feel like you’ve lost yourself, but will find yourself again ❤️ and oh, she is beautiful

This Guy. My Best Friend. The one I spend allll of my time with. 24/7 we live our best life. We conquer every mishap together, we laugh at all the silly stuff, and most importantly we learn and grow from one another.
He is such a fun guy. Always smiling and laughing. He is a social butterfly and WILL win you over in a heartbeat if you make eye contact with him and are in 5 feet haha. He is a dancer. As soon as a beat comes on he grabs Mommy and Daddy's hands, pulls t
I am so glad we discovered these government run programs when my son was only 3 weeks old. It is a place where children and parents can go to play, learn, develop and grow in and around Ontario, Canada. Theme days are such a hit and one of the reasons we love going. Dinosaurs Days where we learn about fossils and beasts before our time, meeting 7 day old chickens in the spring time, and magical whimsical princess days are the most recent. It makes child led learning fun for
Turkey Pot Pie..... is there anything else better? This comfort food recipe wins over my family every time. These pies are a standard after Thanksgiving and Christmas in our household. We are a family of 3 and often have TONS of turkey leftovers after these holidays. Why I love this recipe over the others is because it holds strong. When you cut this pie, the insides do not seep out, but rather stick together. It also freezes great. I make 4-5 pies at a time and freeze (r
It was about a month and a half before Christmas when my son saw his first Thomas & Friends Adventure episode. That was the day he began saying, "Cho Choo" all day, every day. Dancing and stomping his little 21 month old little feet, "Their two, their four, their six, their 8...shunting cars and pulling freight...red and green and brown and blue, their the really useful crew". He was hooked.
I often joke with my husband, how many hours a day do you think he actually play
Why DIY chalk painting furniture is super easy. Guys, in the past I've refinished a bare minimum of 5 pieces of furniture. From stripping paint off (gross), to painting, and even staining two dressers to look alike.
Chalk paint is by far the easiest and here is why. - Drys super quick
- Does not have a toxic smell (can be done indoors)
- Applies to almost any surface - Little to no surface pre-work needed (no sanding, stripping, etc)
- Chalk Paint (I
