“You’ll understand when you have a kid of your own.” My husband and I have had this discussion so many times. We’d heard this from our parents and so many other adults throughout our childhood and adolescence. Right, sure. I doubt having a kid will make me feel any different, I would think to myself. … Continue reading Hopes and Dreams.
Background: When S was old enough to start solids we did a mixture of purees and some baby led weaning. I wasn’t super comfortable with the idea of all baby led weaning so we did what worked for us. She wasn’t extremely into solids for awhile and had some other gas issues from nursing that … Continue reading Feeding Baby and the Magical Pouch Maker
We decided to reach out to a few other mommas to see what kind of goods are in their diaper bags. Items we carry vary based on where we live, how many littles we have, boy or girl, personal preference, and so much more. After our last post (and the positive feed back) we thought … Continue reading What’s in YOUR diaper bag?
Babies need so many things! But do they really? It is difficult (and pretty overwhelming) sifting through all of those lists on Pinterest while seven months pregnant. “Top 10 baby items you MUST have!” “You don’t want to leave these off of your registry!” Those lists are too much. Here’s a nice comprehensive list of … Continue reading Our Favorite Things for the First Year

What’s in your Diaper Bag? We always see those “What’s in your Purse?” posts and let’s be real, we haven’t carried a purse in months. Unless a wallet thrown in a diaper bag counts? But we love hearing what works for other Momma’s on a daily basis, so we thought it’d be fun to hear … Continue reading What’s in your diaper bag?
A few weeks ago, I wrote this post about communication in marriage. I decided to expand on each of the 5 points I made- what they look like, how to implement them, etc. This is the first of those points-- Whose team are you on? The main idea for this is that you’re a team … Continue reading Becoming Teammates.
Rest. It is a necessity but a very scarce commodity for mamas. In a lot of homes, moms are the ones that make things happen. They are the ones that set routines, make dinner, do baths, clean up, create crafts, and so much more. Sometimes mom days start at 5:00 am and aren’t over until after … Continue reading Finding Rest.
I grew up in a fairly small town. I went to my local high school and could easily navigate all of the back roads with my eyes closed. I worked at the local Dairy Queen throughout high school and knew most of the kids at the cash registers in the town grocery store. … Continue reading Home Towns and Home Bases
I warmed up my leftovers from our midweek, impulsive dinner date the night before. The microwave beeped. I walked over and took it out, salivating from the rich flavors of the vegetables and cheese. Glancing at the bowl of greasy chicken and sauce, I reached in the fridge to grab a bag of mixed greens … Continue reading To my Daughter; on Food and Fitness
