How To Find Quality Child Care in Georgia

July 16, 2018

This post is sponsored by GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I blinked and the summer is almost over, at least here in Georgia. When I say almost over, I mean we only have a little less than a month before our county’s school is back in session! Grayson is starting third grade, but Charlie is turning three and in desperate need of child care, specifically: early preschool. (Let’s be…

When You Know Better, Do Better: Why We “Turn After Two”

July 3, 2018

This conversation is sponsored by Chicco. As always, all opinions are mine. If you are a parent and have hung around social media very long, you have probably seen the ever-popular car seat debate. It’s one of the hot parenting topics that come up in discussion threads fairly regularly on the good ‘ole internet, especially “turn after two”. It’s also a topic that tends to bring out some passionate opinions. There are usually two sides to the argument. There are…

Forgetting The Unforgettable: The Fog Of The First Year

June 25, 2018

This post was sponsored by Just Born. However, all opinions are mine. You might have heard new moms talk about the fog of having a new baby. Between sleep deprivation, stress, and everything else that comes with a major life adjustment… infancy can become a blur. The inconvenient truth of that “new mom fog” is that it’s happening at a time when some of the most valuable memories are being made.…

what to pack in a diaper bag

This post is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®. #ad With two babies still in diapers and only twenty-three months apart, a shared diaper bag became something that I had to figure out quickly. It takes tremendous skill and talent to pack a diaper bag, you guys. There’s a fine line between WAY too much stuff and being caught with not enough supplies in a baby crisis. A couple of years ago, I talked about my diaper bag for just Charlie…

10 Things I Want My Daughter To Know As She Grows | #PlaytexMoms #ForBetterBeginnings

January 12, 2018

This conversation is sponsored by Playtex Baby™. When I was growing up, I always wondered if I would have my own daughter someday. I wondered if I would have a little girl to dress up, braid her hair, or take shopping with me. I dreamed about having a mini-me to put in a tutu and take to ballet and have late night talks with. When I found out Charlie was a girl, I internally squealed with excitement. I had my…

My Husband Is A Better Mom Than Me | #PlaytexMoms #ForBetterBeginnings

December 12, 2017

This conversation is sponsored by PlaytexBaby. Before you get huffy and judgy about the phrasing of my title or the perceived intention behind it, I invite you to open your mind and forget everything you have been taught or that you think you know to be the “norm” about parenting. What I love about my little corner of the internet is that it’s a space to come together and revel in the authenticity of parenting. The messy and unconventional conversations…

Grayson’s Christmas List | Holiday Gift Guide for Boys

November 28, 2017

I’m going to be honest with you. This was NOT Grayson’s entire list for Santa. Yep. Eight year olds are very imaginative and very… well… let’s just say they think presents grow on trees. Or, in my case, sleighs. I am getting tired of video games and the like, so I was hoping he would have lots on his list that promoted learning, tactile sensation exploration, and critical thinking. Lucky for me, he totally did. Since we are in an…

Charlie’s Christmas List | Holiday Gift Guide for Toddler Girls

November 28, 2017

Ok, so Charlie isn’t exactly old enough to make a list, so I helped her out. These are things she is getting from Santa this year based on what she is loving in life. I am already loving the holidays this year with her because she has a minimal understanding of what’s going on and is SO excited. There is nothing better than Christmas through the eyes of children, am I right? Let’s get to it.…

Breastfeeding The Last Born : The Final Frontier

October 27, 2017

This post was sponsored by #BumpUpYourCalcium with #Viactiv. All opinions are mine. There are many bittersweet “last” experiences that come while nurturing the last newborn I will ever have. It almost makes me teary to type that. While I am comfortable and confident that our decision to not have any more children is the right choice, it’s still a rollercoaster of emotions when you know that the decision is firm. This is the last time I will have a baby…

5 Tips and Tricks To Relieve Colic

October 20, 2017

This post is sponsored by Mommy’s Bliss. All opinions are mine. Lincoln must be my good karma, because he is actually a dream. For the most part, he’s a very pleasant baby. He sleeps well already, he is rarely upset, and he is consistent with his moods so far. However, every now and then, he is a little hard to settle and seems to have an achy tummy. As much as I adore my sweet Charlie, she was quite the…
