In my house, our animals are our furbabies. They are just like one of the kids around here and are treated like family members. We currently have three dogs: an eleven-year-old Weimeraner, a Husky, and a mutt baby who has epilepsy. Just as we do for our kids, we want to give them the best […]

Did you know that every 33 seconds a child under 13 is involved in a car crash in the United States due to incorrect or misuse of a car seat? No? I didn’t realize that startling statistic either. I also did not realize that over half of car seats are either installed or used incorrectly, […]
Are You Back-To-School Ready?
This back-to-school year is a bittersweet one for our family. It is the last back-to-school that we will have with our kids because they are starting their Senior year in high school. And as I sit and think about what we must do to prepare them for a fresh start this school year, I am […]
Seniors in High School? How did THAT happen?
Do you ever look at yourself and wonder who that person in the mirror actually IS? I mean, where has the time gone? When I was younger, I would look at the people who are my age and think to myself, “that person is old!” Now, I AM that old person. The problem is, I […]
Do Your #KidsBuckleUp Like They Should?
If you have ever been in a vehicle accident, especially one where your kids were in the car, you understand just how scary that feeling really is. I know it all too well, unfortunately! We have been in a few accidents, and while none of them were any fault of my own, it was no […]

Did you know that every 33 seconds a child under 13 is involved in a car crash in the United States due to incorrect or misuse of a car seat? That probably isn’t the first thing you think about when you are hauling your kids to school, the grocery store, or anywhere else around town. […]
Fun, New Monkey Music to Get the Kids up and Dancing!
Making my kids get up and MOVE has never really been an issue, thankfully. They have always been the type to get off their butts all on their own. My son cannot sit for more than 30 mins without moving – he comes by it honestly. But sometimes, even still, there is boredom in the […]
The Mom Village – Encouraging Moms Through Stories
One of my favorite projects each year is the book we do benefitting a different organization. Last year, we worked on a book together called the Mom Quilt. The proceeds from the book went to build a well in Kenya for the Mercy House. This provided not only clean drinking water for the organization, but […]

Laura Ingalls Wilder Doll Review & HUGE Giveaway!
I think that at least 90% of every person I know grew up either reading the Little House books or watching the Little House on the Prairie TV show. Some people love both, some had a preference of one or the other. But regardless of what your favorite was – Laura Ingalls Wilder and her […]
Learning and Attention Disorders Just Need to be Understood
If more of us actually knew the signs of learning and attention disorders, I do not think that so many children would go undiagnosed every single year. It is so sad that we as a community are so uneducated about what those signs are. One in five children struggles with issues related to reading, […]

Chronic Absenteeism – Real Kids Need Real Help!
We are about 9 weeks (give or take) into the school year so far. My babies are JUNIORS in high school. I am not even sure how that is possible, honestly. They are doing adult-y things like driving, and dates, and jobs. But they are still my babies. And while I am big on making […]
