Top This! How to Completely FAIL at Summer: a Step-By-Step Guide

0

I was doing really good today. Great even. I was momming the crap out of today and earning serious Fun Mommy points. Then it all went to *insert poop emoji.* Literally. Here’s how I managed to accomplish my latest fail. 
Step 1: Fill a storage container with water. 

Do your kids love water play in the summer? Of course they do!! Fill a container and let them splash in it. Give them cups, strainers and floating toys to play with. Then let them climb inside and completely soak their clothes. For best results ensure that at least one kid is in diapers. What’s the big deal anyway? How bad could it get?

Breastfeeding In Public with Nursingwear Is Stylish & Easy!

When I breastfed my babies I always covered up. I’m not as brave or body-positive as my mom friends that don’t care who sees or stares. For the most part I used a muslin blanket or nursing cover (get these discounted or FREE with coupon codes, just sign up for emails!). But which way is the best way to go? Let loose or cover up?

Beverage, anyone?

I don’t know about you but this week didn’t start so well for me. As I struggled to fight off a terrible cold, life continued at lightning speed around me. Between this cold, a teething 14 month old and two rambunctious preschool boys with two different classroom parties,  I am in need of some serious relaxation this weekend. Luckily I found a sparkling remedy for bringing my stressed-out week to a close: $9.99 custom 6 pack ciders.

I Totally Wowed with This Budget-Friendly Birthday!

0

Birthday parties are so much fun! Decorations, super cute themes, games, cake and children screaming for hours! Maybe not the screaming part, but hey, that’s what wine is for. Birthday parties are great, but I must admit that I don’t love attending birthday parties as much as planning them. It can be stressful, time-consuming and expensive (not to mention not altogether necessary), so it’s not something I do for every birthday. This year I threw a fun classroom party for under $80 with just a little elbow grease and several items I already had at home.

Weekend Staples: Sangria and Sanity #winedown

sangria

Wine. Fruit. Bliss. That’s what sangria means to me. I’m getting misty just thinking about it.  Over the past 10 years or so I’ve tried countless varieties. I offered three different kinds– including a sweet tea version– at my birthday celebration a couple of years ago. When it comes to sangria there are endless possibilities, flavors, and opportunities for fusion.

This week we are wine-ing down with a Sassy Sangria that’s super easy to make.

“He’s Just Like You, Except He Has Autism.” How to Talk to Your Child

apple-diversity

Last night I had a conversation about diversity with my 4 year-old son.

My little guy was coloring and practicing writing his name when he mentioned that a child on his sports teams doesn’t speak.

“He doesn’t have any words, Mommy. It’s kind of weird.”

I immediately stopped what I was doing. I knelt beside him and began a conversation about diversity, inclusion, love and acceptance. It is a conversation that I plan to have with him and his siblings throughout their lives.
