When You Want To Run, Run!

Sometimes we get in our own way. We sabotage a nice day by beating ourselves up for not "getting enough done" or not being "perfect." It's time to stop it. It's time to learn from our toddlers. Look, life has... Continue Reading →

Just Play- Embrace Your Inner Child!

I don't know where she gets it from, though I know it's not me. My daughter has fallen in love with the piano. Her grandfather plays (he's kind of famous- ever hear of the Rising Storm?), I used to sing,... Continue Reading →

Never Underestimate the Power of Small

Let me tell you something- this motherhood journey teaches me something new every day. After a long day back at my seasonal job, I picked up my daughter, we headed to Aldi (if you're not shopping there you're missing out!),... Continue Reading →

It's allowing more people to have moments like this- more moments with their healthy children and healthy parents. With so many variables out there these days- so many unknowns in our food and personal care products- doing the best we can to do our part to live a more sustainable and less toxic life is important. 

Family Traditions

Then I realized traditions are routines. This trip is just as important as potty training. Her spending time with her grandparents in the same way her dad was raised- experiencing the same places, tastes and sounds is important. We might lose a little potty progress, but we're gaining a foundation on which we can build a strong sense of family. Of tradition.

Never Underestimate the Power of Easy

If there's anything more difficult than getting a clean diaper and a pair of pants on a toddler, it's getting sunscreen on them. Not only are toddlers wiggly, but even though sunscreen has never done anything to them, sunscreen is... Continue Reading →
