Vegan Cherry-Peach Cobbler

We’re a little bit hooked on cobbler right now. The boys think they’re just eating cake, I get to introduce them to new fruits, and we all get dessert. Everybody wins. A lot of this recipe is similar to the Vegan Blueberry Cobbler recipe, but I did a little more than just swapping out fruit. First of…

Little Issues

Parents know that there are times when you have to just laugh, suck it up and deal with the situations your kids get you into. Some are big, some are small, and some are very bubbly. It was about a week ago when our dish soap mysteriously disappeared and my husband (yes, that happened in…

A Very Merry Mickey Mouse Birthday

Time to roll out birthday number two and with only one more big party to go it’s almost time to focus all of my extra time and creativity onto our impending wedding, which is only seventy-seven days away! Who’s panicking? Are you panicking? *Nervous laughter.* I wish there were more hours in the day, especially…

The Best Dinosaur Birthday

We have a lot of birthdays all right in a row and if that isn’t enough stress, I’m also that mom who always tries to DIY all of the decorations. This year my middle little was excited to have a prehistoric celebration and made sure that everyone knew about it. “What do you want for your…

Melt & Mix Crayons

Coloring is an easy activity to get everyone involved in until Baby A starts taking bites of out his favorite colors and my middle little shreds the paper off of his. M hasn’t been very interested in coloring with me lately so I am hoping to spark his interest in arts and crafts again by…

Five Must Watch Christmas Movies

Next to singing Christmas carols all day long (even when you only know a few words), watching Christmas movies is the best way to get the entire household into the Christmas spirit. For me, even as a little girl, the old school claymation and stop motion films were always my favorites so it should be…

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…

On The Third Day Of Christmas

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! There are loads of fluffy flakes flying around Western New York right now and I am loving it. I got out of work today to find my car lightly dusted and the roads a slushy mess but that’s just the way I like my winters. No, this…

Christmas Jokes

On the second day of Christmas Pinterest gave to me, a bunch of funny comics and one over ambitious idea. This time of year can be so stressful and I find myself looking for humor everywhere I can to make light of it.                     There was…

Here Comes Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and the kid’s costumes are set and ready to go. It was only this morning that I finally figured out what I was going to do for Baby A but hey, better late than never. Costumes are one of those things that we, as parents, buy once a year…
