Car Seat Tangled Hair

With three children, every morning is a challenge with timing.  Something is bound to rear its ugly head (no pun intended).  Not only is it hard enough to get everyone up dressed and out the door, then you finally do and the car ride happens.  Car seat tangled hair!  Oh yes, I said it.  Car […]

Let’s Decorate and Get this Party Started

Fall is always a busy time for decorating.  Normally, I do seasonal decorations but as my children get older I am changing my ways.  Now, I decorate for the holiday.  I want them to enjoy each holiday and really have fun with it.  I did not think it would be this fun.  After picking up […]

Field trip to the Orchard

As a mom of 3, I never feel like I give enough individualized attention.  I try to schedule time for each child but something always comes up.  That is why when my preschooler had a field trip to the orchard I hopped on the opportunity.  Not only did this field trip give us an opportunity […]

Potty Training Success

Keep trying and you can achieve potty training success.  Challenges are never easy but when we persevere we can achieve potty training success.  It wasn’t until many battles and many attempted failures from bribery to explaining until I was blue in the face that it struck me as setting a day and never looking back.  […]

Traveling with Children Gets Easier

Having Handy Helpers Traveling with children under age 5 gets easier.  My oldest, at 4.5 years old, is so helpful and the best part is he enjoys helping out.  My middle child, at 3 years of age, is also the same way.  Of course, my 18 month old just plain enjoys the interaction between her […]

Peeing Outside

Unfortunately, I allowed my oldest to pee outside.  Now it is a game.  My middle son watches him and now does it as well.  Although peeing outside is easy when you have 3 children going in separate directions, it has it’s drawbacks.  For example, when preschool decides to take the children outside and your child […]

Potty Training

The reality of it is sometimes it is easy and sometimes potty training is hard.  I went down the path of letting my boys tell me when they were ready, but this was not my initial approach.  My oldest was four before he really wanted to potty train.  It wasn’t that he couldn’t he just […]

Miniature Golf

My oldest son and I needed some one on one time while on vacation so I took him miniature golfing.  It was so much fun, but I will say it does not go the way you think the game would normally go.  Normally, when you go miniature golfing, one person goes then the other person […]

Change is Healthy

Change is healthy for kids because it allows them to experience different things and learn how to adapt.  My oldest child has a hard time in BIG situations.  Big meaning overwhelming, loud with lots of people.  He is incredibly uncomfortable and will remove himself from the situation.  As a mother, I always feel bad when […]
