An evening of baking with the kids | A surprisingly clean experience

If I want to be honest, I am kind of lazy. In the summer, not so much as I prefer to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather for three months but otherwise, I have found recently that I want to do as little movement as possible. Can I blame someone? I blame my job. OK done.

I am always trying to think of easy yet fun activities that my kids can be very engaged in. With them being so young, I figured they’d be interested with everything there was in front of them for only a few minutes and the fun was over so I figured, since they like messes, I would just try some simple baking with them that was fun and that I didn’t have to keep lying around the house.

G I V E A W A Y // Tile App: Best Bluetooth tracker for your children

If you have children, losing them in a crown, or anywhere for that matter, is one of the worst feelings in the world. The fear inside of you kids into the highest of all gears and you start panicking and running around screaming for your child.

Being a single parent with a now six year old who is very interested in things and walks ahead and then off to learn more about them and a three year old boy who disappears into thin air after aimlessly following behind, I find it extremely hard. Unless I have one sitting in the cart (who screams when I put him in) so I can have my eye on the other, I am filled with anxiety at all times.

Music | Teaching kids it’s rude to talk about Uranus.

Recently I heard my daughter singing; not something that’s out of the norm but what caught me off guard one day while driving to Walmart was the lyrics coming out of her mouth that went like this:

It’s rude, it’s rude, it’s very, very rude…to talk about your anus, to talk about your anus.


After listening to her say it over and over again, I finally asked her,

“What….how….where did you hear that from?”

Meeting the girl that your ex is now dating.

I knew when I left my husband that one day I would have to deal with the fact that he would be dating someone who eventually he would want a long terms relationship. I was cool with that but was very hesitant on having any women (or men in my case) being around the children.

Last year he had come to me with the news that he had been seeing someone for a year and knew that my one ask when we split was to not bring the kids around the women he was dating until he knew it was serious. I appreciated the fact that he came to me about it but I wanted to know who this was. I felt like as a mother, I wanted to know who was going to be around my children whether it be a lot or a little. I’m pretty sure he was confused as to why I wanted to meet her but agreed.

He’s 3 Years old already!

It’s hard to believe that three years ago, I gave birth to my second (and last) child. The boy that I had wanted with my first birth had finally come into the world yet I was super freaked out because I’ve heard (and seen) what boys are like when they are young and I was not prepared. Also didn’t help that my psychic told me, verbatim, Continue reading “He’s 3 Years old already!”
