Are We Sheltering our kids Just a bit Much?

Every year I have the wonderful annual pediatrician visit for the three munchkins and just like every previous year I leave dumbfounded with the things pediatricians recommend you do to “protect” your child.  I leave the children’s pediatrician’s visits wondering how the heck I ever survived and lived to talk about it. Seriously. BOOSTER SEAT til 4’9″ Okay, I get it, you all want your child to be safe in the car and years ago many children could just bounce around unbuckled in the car. I am not for that. However, when my child is over 100lbs and is 57″ […]

I Drive Slow. I Can’t Buckle a Pretend Seat Belt.

That’s it everyone, send me away, far far away … My three year old wanted me to pretend play with him. He sat up two kids chairs and told me we were going for a ride to the car wash. I sat down. The three year old informed me that HE would be driving for Mama drives too slow and he drives super fast. I gave him a scared look and pretended that his fast driving is scary. The three year old then told me to buckle up and so I did. Next thing I know I am being told […]

November is National Child Safety Protection Month

November is National Child Safety Protection month and is the time for you to think about your home safety levels. When I had my first child, nine years ago, I was told about electric outlet safety covers, door knob covers that children couldn’t open and baby gates plus so much more that it seemed overwhelming. With so many safety products on the market these days it seems parents don’t know what is too much and what is just enough. I believe that you can never be too safe with children around, but then I have seen people who go to […]

The New School: Making Positive Thoughts

The first day of a new school and my daughter got into the car, well escorted because the new school actually escorts each child to their parents car. That’s kind of neat! Miss Ki was a tad bit upset as I let her brother sit in her seat so she had to sit in his and the seat belt frustrated her. We had to get her buckled fast and move on so the other parents in line could pick up their children and so I think Miss Ki just got overwhelmed and started freaking out. I leaned back and helped […]

NH Doesn’t Require Auto Insurance

Unless you have been in an accident or some other traffic violation, New Hampshire does not require you to have auto insurance, but does that mean you should drive without it? I think not! I enjoy living in New Hampshire because our state motto is “Live Free or Die”, however, it seems many are pushing to have seat belt laws changed, legal driving age changed, requiring helmets in state when driving a motor cycle and the list goes on. Although I completely get the why behind some law changes, if we are a Live Free or Die state, then let’s […]

Live Your Life To The Fullest

Honestly, who cares if so and so doesn’t agree with how you live your life or the actions you take towards ensuring you are living life the way you want? Reality is even I am guilty for allowing others opinions to influence my actions, I don’t want to upset my family nor friends. I don’t like seeing someone upset with me, it sucks, but that is life and you will not please everyone. If you do please everyone I so want to see if you are living your life to the fullest potential and still happy. If so, please share […]

Twitter Party: #ChildSeatSafety Event

And YOU are invited! Resourceful Mommy/MomFluence is hosting a twitter party on Wednesday and I just wanted to share this event with you.  I live in NH and our seat belt laws are “under age 18 buckle up … common sense for all” after all our motto is “live free or die”.

I […]
