Call Me Crazy, But I am The One to Raise My Kids and I have Rights

What happened to the good ole days of parents raising their children? While this is more so about parents fighting for their role as the parents and less to do with how other people parent, I do agree we have a culture of sheep that allow others to raise their children because they either do not know any better, don’t care or feel as though it is everyone else job to raise their kids. When I became a parent for the first time, I was about to turn 21 twenty days after her birth, I had run a ruckus of […]

My Experiences with Dove Advanced Care Deodorant #Sponsored #MC #SleevelessSummerSweeps

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.” I am always on the lookout for a deodorant that will work long term and keep my underarms feeling smooth. I wrote a bit ago about Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture and after testing it out, for a few weeks, I have come to fall in love with this product. I am reluctant to change a product once I have used it efficiently, such as deodorant, being that I need a strong one […]

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant.

We haven’t quite finished our normal family day trips yet and with that comes long, hot, sweaty days of rushing with three to four kids in tow. It’s hard for me to find a cure to help […]

School Lunch Boxes and Kids Chores

I wish I was the mom who let my kids have school lunches. I have seen the school lunches and I am glad they are there as an option for some kids but my kids will not be eating them. Maybe on a rare occasion I do let them have it, but not usually. I can’t let Aj have school lunch for he gets really stuck in a routine so if he has it one week he will want it that same day next week, and so on and so forth. This means every night of the week I am […]

How to Eliminate Bed Bugs Without Chemicals

Over the last few years, bed bugs have returned with a vengeance. Formerly a health hazard rarely seen outside of history books, these blood-sucking bugs are starting to reappear in major cities such as London, New York City and San Francisco.

What type of Musical Instruments Are Best?

I have a household full of music lovers, while I have mostly guitar and drum loving men and boys in the household, I do have some piano and keyboard lovers as well. Kiara has spoken to me in the past about how neat it would be to have piano lessons, while I agree that would be cool, I honestly do not think I can afford it nor am I sure she is interested in piano any longer. When Kiara started thinking about the piano it brought back memories of my really young years of living in the farm house with […]

A Bit of Winter Storm Nemo #nemo #snow #kids

The kids had a fabulous time enjoying the foot of snow slammed on us by Nemo over the weekend.  The little one climbed up the snow bank from the snow plow to slide…. And then smiled as he went down backwards and did a spin to the bottom… The older two boys went outback to take advantage of the backyard hill… Then finally my daughter came outside and since I was the picture taker, there are no pictures for proof that I DID go sliding this year …. It was a blast of a weekend with moments that I had […]

Chuggington MEGA Bloks sets Review and Giveaway

I am excited to share with you my experience with the Chuggington MEGA Bloks lines; The Jetpack Adventure, Repair Shed and Roundhouse. I keep telling you all that I am horrible with instructions for sets like this and in all honesty it is extremely difficult for me to ever get a train set track to match up so that the kids can actually play with their train sets, I always leave that up to the man of the house. The problem was, with these particular sets, that the man of the house was working and my Baby K really wanted […]
