Tweet Things have been NUTS around here lately…good nuts, but nuts nonetheless. My kids have birthday parties to attend every weekend (We refer to October-November as the birthday gauntlet…9 months after Valentines Day…go figure ;-)); my at home business is BOOMING; I’m drowning in laundry, housekeeping, blogging, Christmas shopping, church, cooking (ok, so we’ve been microwaving…a lot); I’m struggling to make time for family; and looming over me are the...

Tweet Kids say the darnedest things…right? My daughter comes up with the most creative words. To be honest, I think she’s come up with a few terms more appropriate than the original. For example: An appliance that is a stove top and oven is a “stoven”. Makes perfect sense to me! Here’s another that many kids ingeniously use, “hanitizer”. Again, makes sense and I know exactly what they mean. One of my favorites has to be the “cat pool”…you...

Tweet Ever have one of those days (weeks, months) where you can’t seem to catch up with where you’re supposed to be…chasing your own tail of sorts. On days like those, parenting can be even harder. Let’s face it…what’s the REAL reason you are so far behind? YOU weren’t the one who needed an hour to eat half of a bowl of oatmeal. It’s not YOUR fault that the baby chose to blow out his diaper just as you’re headed out the door. The endless laundry...

Tweet   I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my homemade automatic shower cleaner recipe so here it is… What you’ll need: Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower system with empty cartridge bottles (I recommend 3), vinegar, baking soda, toxic free soap, and cling wrap. Method: Remove the cap from the cartridge bottle (this part can be tricky) and empty and rinse if needed. My husband was able to remove the caps and shave down the “teeth” with various...

Tweet The other night my son fell asleep while nursing in my lap at his normal time. I followed suit a few hours later, about 11:00pm, with the help of my hubby who gently attempted to transfer my lil Bulldog from my lap, to his chest, and finally to his sidecar crib. Only this night was different. Lil Bulldog was restless and stirred at every attempt at “hug and roll” (sorry for the Friends reference). By the time I brushed my teeth and crawled into bed, he was all but awake. I nursed,...

Tweet Like many mamas, I too struggle with clutter. There are days when the kids toys and laundry seem to take over our entire house. What to do? I can’t just surrender…can I? So do you want to know my secrets for managing the clutter? Are you ready? Pop-Up Hampers and Bean Bags! Sounds crazy, right? I’ll start with the pop-up hampers. These little gems are SO versatile! They fold flat for easy storage and have endless uses around the house. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1...

Tweet Hijacked Housekeeping   I am a total sucker for the latest and greatest cleaning gadgets. I’ve wasted a lot of money trying each trend and learned 3 things: 1) most of the “As Seen on TV” gadgets are CRAP 2) You get what you pay for 3) and there is no such thing as a house that cleans itself. That said, here is a short list of the items I count on to keep my sanity, er…um, I mean my house clean. Dyson DC35 Digital Slim The Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum cleaner...

Tweet Over the next few weeks, I’m going to do a bit of “show and tell”.¬† I’ll be sharing some of my favorite gadgets that make my adaptive life and motherhood a little easier. I’ll also provide you with links to do a little shopping for yourself. Who doesn’t love shopping, right? Let’s begin in the kitchen…Like most of you, I tend to go on autopilot in the kitchen juggling food prep, food fights, and “I don’t like this”. Any device...
