I was about to donate them until I remembered an old craft I loved to do when I was younger and thought one of the boys … [Read more...]

We joke about it all the time on Facebook. Those darn car seat nazi's. We as mom's get defensive of our children and so when someone says something to insult our ability we take it personally and we go into fight or flight. Some delete the picture and then never post car seat pics again. Others get defensive and swear they'd never do that having never been there. Then it happens. And you … [Read more...]

Sawyer James 6 Months Old Milestone @momspotted

Breastfeeding is natural and easy. That is basically the angle of everything I read over the course of my pregnancy. I was so excited about this being the baby I would suck it up and follow through.

I wrote this post the week I found out the gender of this baby. I wrote it without the intentions of publishing it. Then last night I sat at Gavin's boys only tumbling class and looked around.

It's a stadium set up and we sit on a platform … [Read more...]
