We Survived Week Two of Back to School

School started on August 26th, it was a bittersweet day for me. I was excited to be able to work 5 hour days from home again, but also going to miss all four of the kids after our terrific Summer together. Then on day two I was bringing the boys into their school and K-man just lost it. He spent about six days of being in tears at every drop off. It killed me. I had to be strong, swift yet loving with drop off to school as a means to keep hope that he would stop having such anxiety […]

Home Security: Alarm Monitoring Service

An integral part of a home security system is an alarm monitoring service. Without such a service, the security system is useless. Alarm monitoring services are designed to monitor homes and businesses 24/7 and contact the appropriate parties if an emergency occurs. Some individuals desire the security that an alarm monitoring service offers; however, they may be reluctant to make the investment because they feel the service is too expensive. The good news is that discounted alarm monitoring services are available and can easily be found if consumers know how to look for them. Find a Company That Does Not […]

Beautiful Centerpiece Ideas You Can Do Yourself

I recall when I got married it was a simple wedding, no real decor or any sort of theme. A simple backyard wedding with close family and friends in attendance. The daughter was the flower girl and ring bearer because Aj was far too young to be the ring bearer. My father walked me down the “aisle” which was just the backyard grass … nothing special. It was simple and fine by me, however, some people spend years planning those perfect weddings. For those who plan their wedding ceremony in advance and really put thought into having a theme of […]

Keeping Kids Entertained Inside and Babbabox

During the NH Winter months I spend a lot of time hoping that I can hibernate, while my kids spend time wanting something fun to do. While I am usually a super creative Mom of three, there are times {cough} when I get the need to just stay inside. My outdoor children are not so keen on that idea but with the negative temperatures we have been having in NH lately, being outside is not an option. When it is below 0, at about -24 degrees F, it is not healthy to be outside at all. We own a variety […]

Making a Beautiful Dream Bathroom

When I own a bathroom, okay a house first then the bathroom within it, I would love to work on making my dream bathroom.  My true dream bathroom will not come until my children are old enough to respect the items I place within it which means there will be many years before I start putting any antique bathroom vanities in the bathrooms frequented by toddlers! I love the idea of an antique bathroom vanity because they are quite gorgeous in appearance and such an inviting piece of furniture! I would spend the brunt of my time in the bathroom […]

Craft Tutorials Assist in our Family Craft Time

When my munchkins and I sit down to do craft time we usually just pull out all of our supplies and have fun doing whatever each of us wants. After all of our craft things are done we then share what we did and discuss how we did them. It’s fun for the kids to not only interact doing creative crafting ideas of their own, but for them to feel proud in completing a project on their own. Occasionally I will get online and research crafts to do, such as my most recent venture to read a blog post about […]
