How To Deal With Your Kid’s Snack Attacks This Summer

June 7, 2018

This post is sponsored by Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP. All opinions are mine. I know for a fact that I am not alone when it comes to having kids that are constantly hungry. If you are anything like me, you are tired of the constant snack requests and having to tell your kids what they can eat. Here’s a snippet of a typical afternoon at my house:…

Practical Tips For Surviving Sleep Regressions

May 28, 2018

This post is sponsored by Carter’s. All opinions are mine. Can I be real for a second? Two under three is insanity. It’s insane for many reasons (that I should probably vent about), not the least of which being their current SLEEP patterns. With an infant and a toddler, it seems a little bit like someone is constantly in a sleep regression of some sort. Regression is a nice word. My kids are practically rebuking sleep or any type of…

Atlanta Staycation: Mom’s Night Away

May 16, 2018

Moms: have you ever fantasized about a night away from home in a hotel with room service? Um, hi. I have. In fact, when scanning my mom groups on Facebook last week, it seemed that it’s a very popular item on the Mother’s Day wish list. Sometimes, it would just be nice to have peace, quiet, a bubble bath, and food delivered straight to my bed- right?! If you’re in my area, look no further. I found a perfect spot…

How To Turn “Screen Time” Into Family Time

May 10, 2018

This post is sponsored by Amazon. Is it just me, or does screen time get a bad rap? In the land of social media and parenting wars, it seems like the very topic of devices and the how they are used can be very controversial. I have to say, we are a “screen friendly” home. No, I don’t let screens parent my kids (all the time, anyway… half kidding…). However, I do believe that all screen time isn’t negative and…

Everybody is Different (Different is Normal)

April 30, 2018

As Charlie nears her third birthday, I can’t help but think about the journey we’ve been on with her hemangioma. Not the hemangioma itself, but the emotional journey we have taken as her parents and advocates. While she is still too little to notice much of anything about her outward appearance, we have never hesitated to instill wisdom in her and the people around her. I’ve written open letters to the public, imploring society to shift their ideas of beauty…

Sentiments Of A Work-From-Home-Mom With Two Under Three

March 26, 2018

I had a recent realization. I found myself saying a lot “Three kids is so hard!” It just kind of seemed like the statement to make. I’m drained, stressed, and running on empty. At some point, though, I had a moment where I was like- KATIE. This is not about three kids. You are not incapable of raising three humans… this is 1000% about the ages of the younger two.…

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…

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. If you have been around me for any significant amount of time lately, you might have heard me talk about the mixed emotions that come when your LAST-born is whipping through the milestones. Watching the youngest and last baby seem to fly through the first year is both beautiful and bittersweet.…

The Morning My Life Changed (And A Progress Update)

February 19, 2018

I can’t believe it’s been four weeks, you guys. Four weeks ago, enough was enough. It wasn’t New Years Day. It wasn’t even a Monday. (It was actually a random Tuesday, because I refuse to conform). I woke up and decided to change my lifestyle. I decided to put myself first. (GASP.) Let’s rewind a bit.…

I have so many great ideas lined up for you. To start the fun, I’m really excited to share…

Moving Across The Country With Three Kids: A Survival Guide

February 4, 2018
moving across the country with kids

Moving across the country with three kids is not for the faint of heart, you guys. I should get some kind of medal for most moves with kids in an extremely short period of time. We (as a family) have officially moved FOUR times in two years. We won’t even talk about how many times I have moved in my life as an individual. This last one, though, was a doozie. Once again, we moved coast to coast. After our…

4 Ways To Ask How You Can Help A New Mom (That Are Better Than “Do You Need Anything?”)

February 1, 2018

This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx Hi there, hello. My name is Katie and I have been a “new mom” three times. I have brought home a newborn three whole times, each time having different challenges than the last. I would venture to say that this last time was the hardest, having an almost two year old at home. Nevertheless, the postpartum period with a new baby is undoubtedly some of the most challenging and draining times in a woman’s life,…

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…
