I have to say I lucked out in the in-law department. This week my sister-in-law and nieces came into town and we all created some amazing memories. For starters, my sister is a teacher and a mama of 3 (two adults and one 17 year old). That means she is full of wisdom, fun projects and love.

I take pride in making my own baby food for each of my kids. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve occasionally feed them those squeezee pouches when we are on the run, but I truly love making their food. It’s actually pretty easy and usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, most of which is the vegetable or fruit steaming.

Mo room

I LOVE Pinterest. Late night pinning sessions are currently my thing. For awhile now I’ve been searching for a piece of furniture to add to the kids playroom that would help with organization and also the ability keep the kids away from certain things I like to watch them with… like their montessori counting items that seem to always get lost if I’m not monitoring. read more
