It starts as soon as we are pulled out of bed by hungry and hyper children. Managing the stress is such a process in itself. Many of the experts advise on taking time to yourself. But, in my opinion, committing to time to myself is stressful. I don’t need time to myself, I need time to get some things done. Getting things done is what relieves stress in my world. But really, there’s always things to be done, and learning to manage our stress is the best direction we can take. Here are some tips that help me manage the stress in my life, and believe me, I have a lot. First, take Fish Oil: This is the simplest step you can…

Baby bottoms are the cutest. Red baby bottoms are not cute, and ultimately I cringe at the sight of any baby rash signs because I can’t stand the thought of my little angel red and hurting. I’ve tried all the diaper rash creams in my years of being a mom of little ones. My third baby is still in diapers (please send any potty training tips for one-year-olds my way!), and I’ve spent the last 4 years of my life with a child in diapers, so I’ve also slathered on lots of cream. With my first baby, I thought I had the right cream ready to go for my new baby. As the first onset of diaper rash set in, as it usually does at some point, I slathered on my cream and waited. The redness got worse. What?! Of course I called my mom. She asked if I had…

Being from the Pacific Northwest, we have beautiful falls, and there are some fun adventures I look forward too every year. Having toddlers makes the adventures a bit more difficult at times. I remember trying to haul my toddler and a baby to a pumpkin patch, thinking it was going to be so fun, and it was just chaos. Strollers don’t go well in muddy patches. We start our adventures with a great breakfast, like the Post Shredded Wheat in flavors like Frosted Berry, S’mores and Cinnamon Roll. My kids are super picky, and sometimes it is so hard…

My baby is almost 1 year now, and I am still changing his diaper a lot. With two older toddlers and a baby, it is essential to have everything you need right next to you. My sister is due in a few weeks with her third baby, so I popped over to help her craft her perfect changing station to ensure she’s ready to take on life as a mom of three. Creating the Perfect Changing Station First, your diaper choice is very, very important. We both use Huggies®. I recently signed up for a Sam’s Club Membership because they have a super special happening! The Savings Membership level…

This post is sponsored by Bravado, but all opinions and thoughts are completely my own. I only accept sponsorship from products I know I love, and hope that you will too! #upliftingineveryway I wasn’t prepared for the tremendous sleep deprivation a newborn baby brings. There’s not really words to describe it. I remember it being worst with my first baby because I wasn’t used to it. I would try to sleep, then be jerked awake at the smallest sound of the baby making a noise. I also didn’t know how to get a baby on a sleeping schedule, without having him cry his lungs out, so it was a big mess of dark circles and zombie hair for the first few months. I was literally trying everything to get my new little bundle to sleep. A swing, crib, swaddling and bouncy chair. Nothing was working, and in pure desperation I…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc.. All opinions are mine alone. #ShineWithClearEyes #MyShiningMoment #CollectiveBias I’m feeling like a rock star today because I survived a red eye flight across country by myself. The trick is packing strategically. Moms on the go need to pack for survival both for themselves and their kids. Here’s what I brought with me that helped me fly solo with three kids under 5 and live to tell the tale! My first advice is to pack your own mom survival pack. The better mood you are in, the more fun and entertaining you’ll be able to do for your kids. They will feed off of your energy. Packing things to keep you comfortable and in a good mood is one of your biggest essentials. It will transform your experience, put everyone in a better mood, and you won’t spend a lot of money buying…

All opinions are mine alone. #PerfectionWithPost #CerealAnytime #CollectiveBias The reality of my life is that I don’t always get breakfast. I am more concerned about getting coffee down, things cleaned up and kids packed up. Cereal is actually a quick and easy option for me, and I love the tasty versions because I know I can even pack them in a baggy for the kids to eat in the car. A better day begins with a better breakfast, and having a breakfast that is packed with flavorful goodness is what every family deserves. With three new Shredded Wheat varieties from Post® Cereals available at Walmart, it’s easy to please adults and kids alike. You can try out these delicious new varieties with this cashback offer from ibotta. And don’t forget to show recipes featuring Post cereals some love on Pinterest. Whatever…

This shop has been compensated by CollectiveBias, Inc. on behalf of its advertiser, ZonePerfect. #MyLittleWins #CollectiveBias I’ve found, that if I don’t pack myself some healthy snacks, then there are some not-so-great choices that happen. Chocolate bar in the check out line at the store, half a bag of crackers two-weeks-old in the bottom of my purse, or baby cookies that are not meant for teeth…these are all true decisions I have made, in my not-so great and healthy moments. But, after a few repeated incidents, I have learned to plan ahead, so I don’t have to make choices like these anymore. Packing healthier options is super important to help us mamas stick to our goals of losing the baby weight. It is the times when we are out of energy, on the run and stressed when we give in to the candy bars, crackers or cheeseburgers. Packing the perfect,…
