The Cup She Absolutely Can't Do Without

Kids have this way of clinging to the things we least expect. My kids just love certain cups. My daughter especially loves her Minnie Mouse sippy cups made by The First Years. If her drink is not in the right cup, her entire day can go wrong. 

How Our Toddler Helps Us Donate Toys

My kids have a lot of toys – you might even say they’re a wee bit spoiled when it comes to toys. That’s what happens when you have grandparents around who love you and want to grant your every desire. (We love you, abuelos!) I don’t really mind that my kids have a lot of toys.

I don’t know what it is with babies and playing with any household item they can get their hands on, but Macks proves that he doesn’t need toys, he just wants what’s laying around.

What I Learned from “Un-Plugging” for a Week

I find myself constantly in a go-go-go mindset. I also find it difficult to stop and just do ONE thing at a time. Like watch a show for example, I’m always tempted to pick up my phone and browse my social media. My phone is constantly in my hand or pocket and I hate it. Since I work from home and I’m a full time mom, I’ve found it more and more difficult to step away from work, especially when I’m connected constantly via my phone.
