I’m BACK!!!

I know! I know! I may have extended my stay-cation a little bit longer than planned without any notification. I know how that must have left you missing this little Stay-at-Home Mommy. It turned out to be a whirlwind of … Continue reading


Rocking the Boat Preschool Style

We have been super busy this week getting a certain little girl ready for preschool. She will be starting school in less than 2 weeks. We had parent night last night to learn the ropes of her new school and … Continue reading


Becoming Hands Free

So after my last post, have tried to be more mindful of my children today. I used my phone as a phone, like we did back in the 1990’s 2000’s (I did text a few cute photos of the kids). … Continue reading


A Little Insight Into Why I Do What I Do…

I want to share with you a little bit about why I am a stay at home mother.  I am very hesitant to share this with you to avoid sounding self-righteous or facing judgement based on my decisions.  Unfortunately for … Continue reading


Little Duck Organics

If you have a little one, you have got to try these new little snacks from Little Duck Organics.  We bought them for B, but both of my kids LOVE them.  I love them too, because they are simply dried … Continue reading


Sick Day Cardboard Tunnel

Our day quickly changed yesterday after picking up our little B at my parents house the night before. We left him there to play and get in bed on time while we went to church for revival. When we got … Continue reading


The Sleep Saga Continues

So, I know I’ve posted before on my children’s sleep habits and just how poor they are. But, this is a blog about my journey as a SAHM, and at least 2-3 hours every afternoon this week have been spent on fighting my 9 month old to get him to sleep! It is absolutely ludicrous! He is in a terrible cycle of being overtired and fighting sleep and then getting more overtired! How do I stop this cycle?? Any baby whisperer’s want to share their tricks? My house looks like a tornado hit it! Oh wait? Maybe it did!

Please please comment and let me know your ideas or maybe at least leave some encouragement! I don’t care if I’ve tried them already. I’m that desperate!


Repurposing Old IPhone

MK and B both got cute little mp3 speaker docks for Christmas so that we could jam out in their rooms 🙂 MK’s is a cat. B’s is a dog. You adjust the volume with the ears. They both LOVE … Continue reading


The Sleepy Monster

Sleep!!! Sleep!!! Where are you?? I can’t find you anywhere!


Little B is making a habit of waking up at 5:15 EVERY single morning. I have read a lot about the 3-2 nap transition that occurs in babies around 6-9 months. It appears he is trying to go from 3 to 1 naps a day and only sleep 9-10 hours at night. He must be advanced 😉

We have tried everything we can think of to get him to sleep later. I’ve made blackout curtains for his room. We have rocked, bounced, and patted until we’re blue in the face. I’ve even held the poor child down. We tried putting him to bed at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00. I don’t know if I can stand to sing his favorite, “Wheels on the Bus” one more time. I gave him a little musical stuffed animal to snuggle with. We’ve fed him as much food as he will possibly eat during the day. And NONE of it has helped!! He still woke up this morning at 5:15 and LOUDLY and BOLDLY refused to go back to sleep until his sister was awake. Then, he decided a 45 minute nap might make him feel better. Too bad big sister refuses to go back to bed once she is up. It’s official…my kids HATE sleep! At least we are never at risk of sleeping through church. Off we go to worship our Lord and Savior with my sweet little sleepy family!
