Here is a realistic break down of the cost saved if someone stays home...
Being a parent has to be one of the most difficult jobs I have ever had to do. It also is the most rewarding job I have ever had. As a mother, I naturally want the best for my children. I want them to succeed in everything they do. I want to protect them from the pain of the world, the hurt they will have to go through, and give them everything I have. I find myself wanting to be this overbearing protective “Mama Bear”. Yet I know, if I don’t let them fall now and then, or allow them to…Continue

I had seen a article about making your own laundry detergent and it got me thinking, Can I really do that? It sounded like a dream when it came to how much money I could save. But I have sensitive skin and so do my kids, they have eczema too and this made me very hesitant. But after some research I found that there were several people who switched to homemade detergent because of their skin allergies. I decided to give it a try and so far, I am very happy with the results! Together…Continue

So here it is the middle of January and I am thinking about those already broken New Years’ Resolutions!
Every mom I have ever encountered has had 2 common characteristics: guilt about personal failures (real or perceived) and a degree of self condemnation for things she regrets: either due to things she has done to hurt her children, or things she has omitted doing which have also had a negative impact on those in her care.
There are many contributing factors to this…

Actively growing children need food at regular intervals to fuel their bodies and brains. Eating wholesome healthy breakfasts not only increases the chances of an overall healthier diet into adulthood, it improves a child's ability to concentrate and perform in structured environments such as school and will allow them to be more physically active, attentive and less irritable. Skipping breakfast, or giving children the wrong type of foods to eat in the morning sets them up for the potential…Continue

I stumbled across this very honest blog and loved her points on how to make a concerted effort to keep your relationship strong while raising children.
I have noticed that many times parents are not aware of what they are exposing their children to when it comes to adult topics. A child’s development and maturity is very different from an adult’s. Even if your child is very verbal and appears mature for their age, they are still children.
Are you aware of where your children are when you are talking about adult topics? Can they overhear you talking to a friend on the phone or in the other room? Do you have adult themed…Continue

Joovy has a full baby stroller lineup with models that can suit just…Continue
More and more research has shown that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are one of the most dangerous and radical changes to the food we are consuming, that there are serious loopholes with the safety measures and regulations of our food supply, and the masses of consumers have been consistently given a false sense of security about GMOs. Certainly, there are positive claims made by FDA and food industry that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe, properly tested, and…Continue
