I have mentioned before that I try to limit the amount of television my kids watch, especially Zadey. She’s certainly what I would call a TV junkie and part of that has been my fault.
It was only a couple of years ago that I turned off cable TV, but that doesn’t mean that we have stopped watching. It means that we have become even more limited [...]
I love using Pinterest. Any moment of down time I find myself opening the app on my phone and browsing an assortment of different pins, creating boards, liking, commenting… it just goes on and on. Then, I daydream about what I could or want to do with said found new pins.
Currently I have 53 Pinterest boards and over 3k items pinned. And that [...]
Watching my boys play is one of the many highlights of my day. There’s something about little boys… they’re so curious. They want to figure everything out and sometimes, watching my boys play becomes watching their intensity as their little brains get to work at what’s really going on.
Since I noticed this with them I have tried [...]
It seems the older the boys get, the more interested I become in babywearing. When Zadey was a baby, eight years ago, we bought the only baby carrier we knew about then and used it all the time. It wasn’t something that I studied or learned about.
I didn’t feel like I had to, to be honest. But, I know and understand now, that’s not [...]
The holidays have begun. It’s shopping time and I’m sure, like me, your gift list is a mile long and you’re deciding who is the most important to pick things up for and who can be skipped this year.
And, regardless of how much I can enjoy shopping, I don’t even want to run out for groceries this time of year with how much the [...]
In the two years immediately following my surgery for Lap-Band, I did very well. I was almost always on point with calories, food, and exercise. I had a small period, about 6 months, where I did nothing but maintain my weight. And that was really more about getting myself to the place, mentally, where I recognized just because I was at the lowest weight [...]
I have shared, many times, since the start of Moving Through Life my life of HALO SleepSack. I believe in their use with newborns, and regularly used their swaddler for my boys at night. And, with growing, walking toddlers, I continue to use a HALO SleepSack for Early Walkers.
With HALO, I believe in their transparency of safer sleep for babies and [...]
A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Chicago, for the second time ever, to attend the Chicago Toy and Game Fair. It was an amazing trip because it was the first time, after knowing each other for 10 years, that Bobbie from Think. Talk. Blog! and I met in person.
We had such a fun trip. We shared a room at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place and our room [...]
Teachers are a vital part of our world, our community. Teachers leave a lasting impression on our life, not only with education, but many times teachers go above and beyond.
As I sit here today, there are two teachers that had an amazing impact on my life. While many of my teachers throughout my school years mean something to me, and said something [...]
