HOLIDAYING WITH KIDS SURVIVAL GUIDE

Woohoo, it’s that time of year again when we have the kids 24/7, that’s EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. for like a month! Don’t all jump up and down with excitement now (I know you want too! ha!) A part of me LOVES spending the holidays with my family – we can sleep in late, go to bed late, have lazy PJ days in a messy house, and do whatever we want – when we want…. BUT then again, in-between all that holiday-ing, there’s the….. darker side…..the side of holiday parenting that makes us… Read More

SWADDLE UP REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

S-L-E-E-P … The Holy Grail to parents of little people!

BROOKLYN’S BIRTH STORY

On the 12th of June 2018 at 1:55 pm we welcomed our beautiful second son, Brooklyn Zane into this world. Although it was an elective c-section, I started having contractions the night before that were 5 minutes apart lasting for 30-45 seconds. And, no I didn’t rush to the hospital or woke hubby up to tell him, as I think I was either in denial, or wasn’t sure if it was actual contractions. So I just lay in bed from 1 am up until 5:30 am, only clocking in two… Read More
