FEBRUARY The month of love and romance. Since we have two wonderful children it is rather difficult to celebrate Valentines Day. My sister in law actually celebrates Valentines with their children on the day of Valentines and then goes out with her man on a different day. We will be joining in on that idea this year. My daughter still nurses and REFUSES to take a bottle so needless to say she just goes wherever I go. I like this idea because I enjoy the idea of spending this time set aside to show your “love” to share with our kids…. Read More

See my tutorial for the yo yo mobile here. This is what I came up with to hang above her changing table. It’s really quite easy. Supplies– Picture frames (I used 2 really ugly gold frames that I spray painted white..they were free). I just spray painted right over the gold and then kinda roughed it up around the edges… Read More
I’d like to think both my children are snuggly cuddly fall asleep on my shoulder kinda children, my daughter seems to only want to snuggle while wide awake, mama’s cleaning, and bubba’s running around like a crazy 3 year old..aka…SPOILED ROTTEN. She just wants to ride on my hip all day. And her bubba… he’s apparently too old to snuggle now (not that he was ever much of a snugglebug) I have to take advantage of his snuggles IMMEDIATELY when he wakes up, otherwise the opportunity has passed. That is of course if I can run faster than my husband… Read More
