Christmas Decorations

These were so much fun and really easy! ♥ Remember those old wooden trucks and blocks that were practically in every elementary classroom throughout the 90s and early 2000s? They’re basically just 2×4’s cut into different shapes and sizes. Well, we happened to have a small collection of them at home and unfortunately (because my…

DIY Baby Wipes *Update*

Three years ago I was so excited to share how I make my homemade baby wipes with all of you and despite the occasional “oops, we’ve run out of paper towels,” it’s been really easy to stick with making them all this time. The general concept has been the same but there have been a couple…

The Baby Tipped His Highchair

My two younger boys have a tendency to rock in their seats, whether it be an actual rocking chair, on the couch or in their highchair. Normally I can tolerate it, or they will stop when the food gets to the table, but as we have learned it’s not necessarily the safest of habits to…

Persuasive Media

Today has been a busy day. Work, dentist, grocery store, house chores and Survivor is on which means I forgot to write until now. I am thankful for all media that conveys a positive message. Whether it’s a happy video of an animal sanctuary on Facebook or an old movie that has wholesome content, I…

My Monkeys

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, one wild family of five. Let me just tell you, having three little boys (five and under) is like living in the center of a category five hurricane. You are in the eye of the storm, safe for the most part, but everything around…

Little Toy Hospital

As my little ones grow so does the number of toy casualties around our house. Most toys are a no brainer: cracked, torn and into the trash, but there are a select few that the kids won’t let go of. Currently our house is home to a no-ears, three legged stuffed giraffe (a best friend…

Stop Buying Diaper Pail Refills

While some parents view diaper pails as an unnecessary expense, I have gotten more than my fair share of use out of ours. Obviously there are other options for diaper disposal like walking each diaper outside to the bin, wrapping them individually in old plastic market bags or just tossing them straight into the can…

Backyard Coffee

Good morning and Happy Tuesday to everyone! A nearly empty coffee mug, stormy skies and three little boys covered head to toe in dirt. That is my day so far. With the boys playing so loud inside the house, it seemed like a good idea to get them out for a bit of fresh air….

Miracle Bandaids

For the first time in a long time, my five year old got a cut at home that required a bandaid, or so I was told because I haven't actually looked at it myself. In fact, it's likely that he won't let the bandaid be removed for another three days or more unless it falls…
