Give Me Sleep NOW!!!!

I just wanted to share a resource with you all that can be a LIFESAVER for you as it was me! Since my daughter was born we’ve tried to use the Babywise scheduling techniques and wanted her on a schedule. As a side note, I know every parent wants what is best for his or her child and the method you choose is yours and no one should judge. For us, we wanted our daughter sleeping in her own crib and through the … Continue Reading »


2 Is The New You!

Today, my littlest girl turns 2. I’m admitting now that since she has no baby book, or for that matter, printed pictures in a real photo album, I’m laying some memories for her, here. #thirdchild (Photo credit-Angel Murphy Photography) To my wild, loud, and tender 2-year-old, Today, I can officially call you a toddler. But you are my baby—the one that will forever be my baby. Below are a few special things about you, from this last year. And also a few things … Continue Reading »


Valentine’s Day Traditions

In honor of Valentine’s day being one week away, I thought I’d go back to last year’s post about what we do as a family to celebrate “love day.” Just to update–our 2017 traditions are underway and this year has been especially fun to read through the hearts that I post on my girls’ doors each morning! My oldest daughter is well aware of this  “heart” routine and anticipates her little piece of adoration each day. While my almost 2-year-old, giggles and points to … Continue Reading »


Seasons of Life

Y’all parenting is HARD. One thing I’ve been struggling with these last two years is who I am as a mom. I went from a Biochemistry degree, a Master in Education, teaching high school and coaching cheerleading, to cleaning up poop and puke all day… Before I go any further let me state for the record that I am NOT COMPLAINING about being a mom or where the Lord has led me!! I love my daughter and all those years I yearned for … Continue Reading »


An Apple A Day

In the midst of the holiday season and staying on top of just “normal life” activities, I’ve realized that my oldest daughter, who is now 5, doesn’t have a lot of structure outside of her school day– before she leaves and after she gets home. I’m a newbie at parenting a school-aged child, and thankfully Macey-my daughter, is more than willing to be my Guinea pig with new strategies or activities I find. A few things about my big girl, Macey- she is … Continue Reading »

A $1 Idea for Kids

A quick post about something awesome for kids that literally costs $1.00. My mom came across these Color and Play coloring books at the Dollar Store a few months ago, and they have been a hit in our house. These coloring books take coloring to a new level—and my kids love it! Kinsey (also Doc McStuffins for the moment, lol) helped me with this post below! Find a picture in the Color and Play book that has a special “star frame” on the … Continue Reading »


When You Blog About a Bath Towel

When life is wild and everyone in your family has had the stomach bug, it is quite easy to feel like you can’t think straight. So seriously, since I’m camped out over here in the “my week was a blur” tent, I’m writing about literally what is right in front of my face. Sadly, that would be the laundry. And with the extra number of loads I’ve done this week, thanks again to our little stomach situation—I have here in front of me … Continue Reading »


What’s Up Thursday

The other day, Angie and I were together and like we often do, we were talking about our blog and some new post ideas. I had mentioned to her that I wanted to write a certain “how to” post, but I wasn’t sure if I had all of my ducks in a row or if I had actually mastered this certain “how to” perfectly myself to post about it. Thankfully with her wisdom, Angie reminded me that we should share/write/post about the things … Continue Reading »


Day in the Life of a One Year Old!

So this post may not be that exciting to some of you, but I wanted to share some activities in my daughter’s day and her typical schedule. This is just her general schedule. On days when we have bible study or decide to do something as a family, we are flexible and move things around. (Also, sometimes when I see other people’s schedules for their kids it makes me STRESSED OUT! I don’t want that to happen with you! I’ve learned that a … Continue Reading »
