Get Ready for Back To School with these Tips

Get Ready for Back To School with these Tips

With summer starting to wind down, back to school is on people’s minds. For me, back to school means my commute time gets a ton worse. But it is also important to remember that the back to school commute comes with added traffic hazards, and we need to remember these back to school driving safety tips. My toddler’s daycare schedule doesn’t really change, though he is approaching preschool (once we get that heinie of his potty trained). But I’m sure kindergarten will be here before we know it, and many of my readers are doing the back to school shuffle […]

Couch Kid? 5 Ways to Motivate an Inactive Child

Couch Kid? 5 Ways to Motivate an Inactive Child

        Kids who exercise on a regular basis will carry these habits with them into adulthood and live healthier lives.

If your child is a couch potato, here are five […]

Why breastfeeding moms need a lactation consultant

Why breastfeeding moms need a lactation consultant

Breastfeeding did not come easy for me with my son. It was a constant struggle and gave me an immense amount of guilt before I accepted my low supply and decided to continue doing my best despite the problems.

Gratitude and Goals My Gratitude: June and July were quite busy and eventful for us. Looks like I skipped last month’s Gratitude and Goals post. Most important thing that happened – we got orders!
