Mother, Mamma, Mommy or just plain Mom are just some names for the woman in your life that will help raise you and love you unconditionally forever and always. A mother endures the good, the bad and the ugly from their children and always hands out hugs and kisses. They are the rock and the support throughout the good and bad times in your life. A mommy will always hold you near and dear while wiping away your tears.
Are you a parent who likes to invest their hard earned cash for more educational toys for their children? I know I am. I like to sneak learning into everything I can. It’s especially useful when they don’t realize that it is educational and they are just having fun! My oldest who is now a teenager catches on much more easily now though! I wanted to compile a list of fun educational learning toys that you can buy. And what better time than before Christmas! This will help you find some awesome toys!
I will be the first to announce I’m not the normal crafty mom. I wish I was some days, but I just am not. I am not a crafty person in general nor do I have allot of extra time to make these super cool time extensive crafts. I do however know how important family time is and even a small craft can give lasting memories. So, on that note, this is going to be super simple crafts you can make without having to waste an entire day.
If you are anything like me, I both love and hate the holiday season. Ok, maybe hate is too strong, but I mean it in the nicest way possible though. I love all the traditions and family time, but I strongly dislike the finding the perfect gifts for people sometimes. I seem to have a harder time finding gifts for the younger kids than anyone else.
The Holy Bible holds more than a few gems about the value of our little ones and how we should raise them. Even if you don’t believe in God or religion, you’ll find most of these verses are less about religious doctrine and more about having the proper perspective as a parent, viewing children as the gift they are.
If you, a family member, or a friend have a child in hospital, you might want to lift their spirits up and give them a fun and meaningful gift that will make their hospital stay a little easier.
For a breastfeeding mother, returning to work after maternity leave can be an overwhelming challenge. Not only will it mean she is away from her baby, probably for the first time, but the struggle of maintaining breastfeeding while not being able to actual feed during the day can be stressful.
At this time of year parents and kids thoughts turn to going back to school after the long summer vacation. This can be an exciting time, particularly if your children are starting school or going to a new school for the first time. It can also be a challenging and...
Every day when my two little girls get home from preschool they ask if they can watch their Kindles. Since we recently banned YouTube in our house (thanks Momo), if allowed, they’ll be binge on Netflix kids for an hour or so until it’s time for dinner. It’s one of their favorite pastimes, as well as mine, so I tend to have a harder time saying no than their mother. But I do say no. As often as I’m able. Why? Because I want them to do something else instead. Something I loved doing as a child. I want them to pretend.
Baptizing your baby will likely be one of his/her first big public events and one that could sneak up on you, since it usually takes place at two or three months of age. Big events take time to put together. You’reprobably still adjusting to your new lifestyle as a parent, so planning a big to do for your little one so soon could seem a little daunting. Don’t worry. Don’t fret. Instead, get excited.
