I love sunshine. Don’t get me wrong. But when it is 6:30 am and you don’t have to get up until 9, the last thing I want is sunshine in my eyes! (or in the eyes of my kids!) This was a real issue when I moved into my apartment earlier this year. The side of the curtain kept pulling away and letting the light in WAY too early. I found a tip on Pinterest to fix this!
Take one of your ring clips and turn it around the corner so that it’s hanging on the bracket rather than [...]
Our lives as moms can be SO busy. We don’t know whether we are coming or going a lot of the time. This can make it difficult to carve out time to truly clean our house. Eventually we will have to deep clean, but I wanted to share with you what you can accomplish even if you JUST have 5 minutes. While you are waiting on a kid to get ready, or the water to boil, try doing one of these below:
Five minutes isn’t a lot of time but if you’re efficient you can get a lot done. [...]
I was blown away when I actually tried today’s tip! I could’ve saved myself so much frustration if I’d known this when I moved into my first place (and 2nd and 3rd….)
Thank you, I Heart Nap Time!

Children bring so much joy to a parent’s life. With the pressure of bringing another life into the world, and nurturing that child into a mature responsible adult, there also comes an increased load of stress.
There is the long-term stress of “Am I raising my child right?” and “Will he ever grow up and be able to take care of himself?”
And then there is the day-to-day stress. There are many things that contribute to the stress that a mom feels each and every day. Of course, some times that stress level seems off the chart [...]
Feeding your family can be a great stressor in your life, especially if you work full time outside the home, or if your kids are in lots of activities, or for many other reasons in our busy lives.
Planning your meals and shopping ahead of time is the very best way to handle feeding your family, and should help to reduce the stress around the question “Mom, what’s for dinner?”
The reality is, however, that even if you DO plan your meals, there will come a day, or days, when things don’t go as planned. Maybe you get sick, or [...]
Sometimes we long for an adventurous life. We want to throw caution to the wind and go with the flow. And in some occasions that may be a good thing, but for the most part, routines and habits can be a good thing. Having the important daily things on autopilot, if you will, gives you more time and more brain power for doing all those other exciting things, even if it is just playing Legos with your kids or taking a walk in the park.
10 things you should do every day*
1. Drink enough water. And be sure [...]
