A Heart-Warming Way To Have Your Kids Give Back This Year

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola™ Company. All opinions are mine alone. #LayerOnLove #CollectiveBias My kids are very oblivious to those who are in need. We are so blessed, so they don’t understand the feelings of being hungry or cold, despite what I’ve tried to explain to them. I think its super important to get your kids involved in giving back this time of year, to help them understand what it means to help those in need. My children are finally old enough to be able to participate in activities and actually understand what we are doing, and I have partnered with the Coca-Cola™ at Walmart’s “Layer On Love” program. This is a simple program for my kids to understand and get behind. They know what it means to be cold, and that some children don’t have warm jackets! I talked to my children…

This breastfeeding diet plan is free, and will get you started for 5 days, to help you lose the baby weight and ultimately keep your milk supply healthy. Let’s be real. Losing weight is so hard because it happens too slowly. There isn’t the immediate gratification of losing a pound in a couple minutes, so it is extremely difficult to stick to a plan.

I am so passionate about nutrition while healing postpartum and losing the baby weight, I created a full, postpartum recovery program with a complete meal plan and unique recipes that will help you lose the baby weight and keep your milk supply up.

Tips To Help Daddy Bond With A Breastfeeding Baby

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SimplyBonding #CollectiveBias Breastfeeding a baby is such a special bond. Feeding a baby in general creates an important bond of trust and love, that I feel so blessed to have experienced now with three little ones. I am still breastfeeding my 10-month old baby, and I think it’s important not to leave Daddy out on all this special bonding time. For first-time parents, it can be difficult to allow daddy an opportunity to bond with the baby. I never had my husband do the middle-of-the-night feedings because he had to work. I just reasoned that only one of us should be in a zombie-like state, and we don’t need him functioning half awake while working, so these ideas are all great ways to have daddy bond with the baby, without having him wake…

Let’s Talk About Breakfast

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PerfectionWithPost #CerealAnytime #CollectiveBias The reality of my life is that I don’t always get breakfast.

A better day begins with a better breakfast, and having a breakfast that is packed with flavorful goodness is what every family deserves.

Teach Your Toddler To Wipe Their Bottom This Summer

My least favorite part of being a parent is wiping bottoms. I really don’t like it. I do it, with the best, joyful spirit I can muster, but I take my sweet time when they are calling for me to come help. I was determined to teach my oldest to wipe his bottom by this summer because I have my third baby now, and I just can’t be running to the bathroom to wipe when we are out at the beach, in the pool, or on some sort of fun summer adventure. I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to accomplish this, but I came up with a method that worked really well! I’m going over how I was able to accomplish this for the summer, and I hope it helps you get your little one to start wiping too! PS: Because you are a reader on my blog,…

Best Places to Take Instagram Shots

I am full of lust for those Instagram accounts that have amazing, professional, bright and happy photos. I follow them because of pure love for a great photo. I guess I am actually not one of those moms who is always taking photos of everything everywhere. You would think it might be the opposite because of all the photos I post on my own Instagram, but I am actually very intentional about when, where and how I photograph. It is very important to me that I am present with my children, and they don’t feel like they are always on camera. I also just have a lot of photos in the post to show you what I am talking about. That’s easier for me to explain. I have a method of how I set up my photo opts, which I talk about in my eBook. It allows me to gather…

Dear 2016, I’ll Never Forget You

Dear 2016, You deserve a letter. You were a year that was so good to me in so many ways. You came in quietly, then turned my world upside down and gave me two pink lines with your entrance. A new bundle on the way and two toddlers growing fast, your whirled me out of 2015 – a year of anxiety, fear and turmoil, into a new found joy and peace. You brought our family closer, healed past hurts and put some adventure in there too. A few plane trips, sun rays and palm trees were sprinkled throughout our renovation projects. Along with the renewed happiness in my soul, you gave me my healthy little David. This blog, my place of encouragement and truth, came alive in your slow conclusion, and I could never be more sad to say goodbye to you. I am praying 2017 continues with your power…
