It is How it Is, Just Deal With It

I can be what some call a pushover mom or a softy with some things that have to do with parenting my children, or being in charge of any children for that matter. I firmly feel that there is a different between choosing when you can be somewhat “soft” and when you have to be firm with a child. The theme that comes to mine is “pick your battles”, obviously if you have said no and the child continues to ask why or debate the topic with you then you stand firm. With that being said if you chose not […]

If Only the Big Bad Wolf Was Real…

My three year old son is obsessed with the big bad wolf, if you ask him he will tell you he “isn’t scared of anything, not even the big bad wolf”. Then he will proceed to tell you that he will just punch him in the face. This kid has a mouth on him the size of Texas, no joke.

The other night I needed to cook dinner because the […]

I admit I have one picky eater, he is my youngest. Yes K refuses to try anything new, eat things he “thinks” he doesn’t like and will go to bed without dinner over having to try anything new. My three year old son is easily satisfied during breakfast or lunch because those are sort of “by the fly” meals, meaning kids have their own choice for the most part, but dinner on the other hand can be a challenge. I mentioned that my five year old now has  a town library card and well this is a book he picked […]

Ragu Brand Ambassador NYC Trip #raguweekend @ragusauce

I am just back from a fabulous trip to NYC where about 27 of us Mom Bloggers got together to learn more about Ragu & Ragu Brand Mom’s The Word on Dinner program. The trip was scheduled and I packed light for the overnight trip. This is the first time I was going to be flying completely alone and only the second time flying in my life, so I decided not to pack all of my hair gels and what not. I am still not up to par on the restrictions of what you can carry onto a plane these […]
