Personally my weekdays consist of early mornings, teaching high schoolers, getting dinner on the table, playing with my kiddos before bedtime, grading papers until just before my carriage turns into a pumpkin, and putting in all-nighters with a sleep-striking baby.
I’m a planner, list-maker, and organizer to the core. I like to do structured sensory play activities as much as – probably more than – the next person. But, after trying a few different activities with my one-year-old daughter, I realized something.
Choosing who will care for your child while you’re at work or away can be a daunting task for both new and seasoned parents. It’s important to know when to start looking for a daycare center, what questions to ask, red flags to watch out for, and the price range you can afford before you […]
While I don’t consider myself a fashion expert, I do like to get dressed every day. Somehow I feel more productive and energized when I’ve done a little more than roll out of bed and throw a hoodie over my pajamas. (But trust me, there are days like that!)
After attending several wellness check-ups for my daughter, I realized something.

While basics are sometimes boring and probably the last thing you want to purchase while shopping, I am here to tell you that you can’t go wrong with the perfect white t-shirt. The perfect white tee is a classic staple that shouldn’t be overlooked, especially for busy moms and women in general!

If your child resists a new face, just know that building relationships take time but their lives are so much richer with a community […]
I grew up thinking you had to be in really bad shape to need a therapist, when in reality, I wish I would have gone to one sooner. My kids also see a therapist and have never once complained about going – they actually like it and want to go!
I believe any parent would be shocked and frightened by these events. However, what frightened me the most was the realization that if it were my kids, they may not fight back. If someone tried to take my kids, they wouldn’t fight back. They wouldn’t fight back, because I haven’t told them it was okay to […]
