Update on my New Year Goals

Hmmm… so I am not doing as well as I would hope. I was excited with the new year and I think my expectations were too high for myself. Although I have done well on a few of them, I think the ones I am not doing so well on are the everyday activities I…

Mom Tip #108

Another tip or suggestion I have for all you moms, or really anyone – have a good, organized laundry system! Otherwise, your laundry can take over your house 😫 I always hate having laundry baskets sit around, then the clothes sit and get wrinkled and mornings are spent doing a deep search through the laundry…

Back and Forth

I continue to struggle with what’s going on in my life, with my daughters anxiety skyrocketing and fathers cancer slowly taking over his body- I go back and forth about what to feel worse about; my daughters mental health breakdown or fathers future?! 😥 I try and think “find something positive” I always find the…

Mom Tip #106

Okay, here it is…my weakness…my weakness is I LOVE to sleep!! So this next tip, I struggle with and that tip is getting up earlier than your family in the morning! When I do (very rarely) the morning goes so much smoother and the day just seems to start better! Every morning I get up…

Mom Tip #105

Mom Tip #105 – Pray for your kids! First of all, our God is the only one to ultimately protect and care for our (HIS) children! And secondly, it set’s such a good example for children to see/hear us pray for them. I pray in a way, like I’m talking to God as a friend,…

Excited to do laundry 🤓

Yes, that’s right, I’m excited to do laundry! Laundry is a never-ending battle and instead of doing laundry everyday, I chose 2 days( Wednesday and Saturday) to do it (unless I have an emergency load, I’ll throw that in) but I pretty much stick to these 2 days because otherwise I’m doing laundry(washing, drying, Folding…

Mom Tip #104

Have a family calendar (and keep it updated)! As with many other families, we have busy lives! My husband and I work full-time, so some days we have babysitters and this calendar helps them as well!  My kids are learning as well, to check the calendar and then they also remind me to update it…

Let them go

This is a picture of my daughter long-boarding this weekend – yes, it made me oh so nervous and I wanted to wrap her up in bubble wrap to protect her! But she wanted to be like her big sister and give it try, why would I discourage her from trying something new? As a parent,…

Sleep Well…

Sometimes I struggle to wind-down at night, which from connecting with other moms, is pretty common – so I have been praying this verse at night and it has given me comfort knowing I am leaving it up to Him – “Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” 1Peter 5:7 I’m…
