Diaper Hacks 101 (That I Use the Most!)

Let's face it - changing diapers is not exactly fun. However, there are a few tricks to make it easier. I've partnered with Huggies® to bring you the diaper hacks I use most. #ad #huggon #momlife #bestdiapersever #huggies #newbabyessentials #pregnancy #bestbabydiapers #babyshowerregistry

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/HuggiesⓇ. The opinions are entirely my own based on my experience. Do you know anyone in the world who would tell you that their favorite part of being a parent is changing diapers? Haha, I didn’t think so. It’s not exactly the most pleasant part of being a parent but since it’s something we all have to do, we can at least try to make the process a little easier. After close to five years of changing diapers, I’m excited to partner with HuggiesⓇ to offer two important tips to new parents: 1.) Use …

My Real Life Stay At Home Mom Schedule

My Current Stay At Home Mom Schedule with a Toddler and a Preschooler If you’ve been following along, you know that it’s taken me a while to adjust to life with two kids instead of one. My oldest daughter was an overall easy baby. My second daughter is the one that’s more of a typical baby – nothing horrible or out of the ordinary, but she is definitely different and because of that, I feel like I have to learn how to parent all over again. I’m learning that what worked for my oldest daughter might not work for my …

How to Get Through Those Bad Mom Days

How to Get Through Those “Bad Mom” Days We’ve all had them. The days where we feel like all we do is yell at our kids, where we don’t spend any time playing with them, where we snap and take out our own frustrations on them and truthfully, days where we just don’t appreciate them as much as we normally do. The days where we feel like a bad mom. I’m definitely not saying that we are bad moms, but I think we can all agree that some days are better than others. I’m slowly learning this is just a …

An Open Letter to My Mom – Thank You

In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to write an open letter to my mom. She was a single mom and now that I have two girls of my own, I have a new found appreciation and respect for all the things she did for us. Dear Mom, I used to think I knew how much you loved my sister and I. Before I had my first daughter, I think I took your love for granted. You were always there and willing to give us anything, but I never understood what you felt on the other end. Of course, I …

My Real Life Stay At Home Mom Schedule

My Real Life Stay At Home Mom Schedule with a Toddler and a Newborn Are you a stay at home mom who wonders how other stay at home moms manage their day? I am too! I’m mostly curious to see if there’s anything I can learn from other moms to help my day go a little smoother because, let’s be honest, the days can feel REALLY long sometimes. Most days end with me counting down the minutes until my husband gets home. However, there are good days too! Days that go better than others and I’ve found that those are …

What I Wish I Knew About Having a Second Child

As I finally sit down to write a new post, I realize it’s been over a month since I’ve been able to write anything. A month! What’s happened in that month? Oh yeah, I gave birth to our second daughter and man, I was not as prepared as I thought I was for the challenges that having both a newborn and a toddler present. It’s 4:30am and I’m woken up by the cry of our second baby. She’s ready to eat. I get up, half asleep and sit down to feed her. Just as I finish feeding her, changing her …

Our Weekend in Phoenix

To say my mom and I are close would be an understatement. She is more than my mom, she is my best friend and someone I can count on for anything. We have always lived within twenty minutes of each other so when a year ago, she decided to move to Phoenix, AZ, it was tough news to hear. She decided to make the move to be with her new husband. A part of me was extremely happy for her to have found someone that made her happy and that loved her in return. Growing up, she was a single …
