As parents, we love watching our children progress. We eagerly cheer as they begin to crawl and walk, and sniff back tears as they head off to their first day of preschool donning their new backpack. We genuinely get excited to watch them move into newer and greater things. So many parents treat upgrading car seats with that same enthusiasm, and rush their children through the stages, such as prematurely forward-facing their toddlers or buying your preschooler a car seat that just utilizes the regular seat belt. We’re here today to discuss why you should keep your child harnessed in the car for as long as possible.
Let’s face it- out of all the rooms in your home, your kitchen probably sees the most action. (Unless you happen to have a newly potty trained child.) Yet, sometimes it simply becomes overlooked. Sure, you do the dishes everyday and you make sure to wipe your cooktop off after meals, but do you ever dedicate some time to really get all up in your kitchen’s business? Instead of devoting a few hours to deep clean your kitchen from top to bottom, here’s the busy mom’s guide to keeping a hygienic kitchen- broken down into an easily managed weekly plan that can quickly become routine (+ a few of our favorite “tips and tricks” thrown in for good measure!)

As moms, we’ve all felt the sting sometimes. Maybe your newborn will only fall asleep when Daddy is bouncing them? Or your toddler suddenly behaves angelic for Grandma while you’re away, and saves all their pent up frustration for an epic tantrum twenty minutes after she leaves?

You may be slightly jealous at how chic and professional your single girlfriend looks on a daily basis, but will she be able to hang doing your job?

My name is Megan. I’m about to turn 31 years old, and I feel like I am the walking epitome of the word tired. Being a mother to a three year old daughter and an 14 month old son with, shall we say, “less than stellar sleeping habits” typically lends itself to being exhausted. But that’s not what I’m talking about right now. I’m tired of making excuses. I’m sick and tired of being overweight. Not just overweight, obese. That’s what the doctors call it, and I’m done making excuses and sugar coating things.
