Day Out with Thomas at Conway Scenic Railroad in New Hampshire @thomasparent

Disclosure: My family received complimentary tickets to attend this event. The family and I headed out to North Conway, NH on Sunday to enjoy a Day out with Thomas. We went to this event at the Conway Scenic Railroad about four or five years ago when my youngest was just a little baby. While the kids were not super excited about slightly over two hours of riding to the event, we did have a blast once we arrived! The arrival was a little rough, because I was not good at planning the right time for the trip. I tend to […]

Hallmark Keepsake Chuggington Ornament

I am so sad to say that after year end, the Chuggington Conductor program will not be a part of my life here on this blog. The boys are getting older and the original program is saying goodbye, but I will still be catching the Chuggington cartoon on the Disney channel from time to time in the mornings when my boys let me watch it that is! As a farewell to the program I am sharing with you all a last minute holiday gift idea for your loved one, a Hallmark Keepsake Chuggington ornament for the trainee in your life.  […]

Family Time Means So Much To Me

One day the family wasn’t quite sure what to do so we went downstairs to see what we could come up with to do. The first thing that came to mind was to create train tracks and play with our Chuggington Train Sets, this is something all of the kids enjoy playing together. I keep forgetting just how many trains and tracks this kid has from Chuggington so I thought I would share a few pictures from the family time we had a couple of weeks ago with these sets. Chuggington was a pleasure to work with last year and […]

Day 6: A Matter of Thinking

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less Anxious

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less AnxiousNow that my head was clear I was able to have a free mind and train my brain to take information into it and spit it out as positive or proactive thoughts/actions. For example if I were to receive a disconnect notice for a very important bill I would not sit here in tears wondering how the heck I was going to pay for it, I would actually sit here and focus on ways I could come up with the money, payment plan options the company […]

We’ve Been Attempting Potty Training

Yes with the help of Potty Tots I have been attempting to encourage potty training with AJ who is now 3 and a half years old. I will be honest Baby K shows more interest in the potty than AJ so I am hoping by attempting to encourage them together we will get at least one of them out of diapers soon. I want AJ to go to preschool next year since he didn’t potty train this year I never sent him to 3 year old preschool, I refuse to put him right into all day Kindergarten before at least […]

Day 4: #EASactive Workout

Today is DAY FOUR and slowly but surely I am getting somewhere, feeling so energized I really shouldn’t write my update immediately after my workout because I am like on some super exercising high where I feel like rambling on and on for hours or running in circles with my children.  Completing and sticking to my daily exercise plan with the EA Sports Active has really started to boost my spirits, self esteem and motivation! Today I earned a fresh air trophy …. My calorie burn was yet again above the estimated and most of today’s exercises concentrated on my […]
