The Last of the Firsts: From Baby to Boy

By | October 16th, 2017|Motherhood|

My baby started Kindergarten.  I’m not sure how that is possible since he was born last week, but as I watched him get on the school bus, I realized it was really happening. That first day was quiet. Too quiet.  And then it hit me. Everything he experiences for the first time, will be a last for our family. The last first tooth lost. The last first day of Kindergarten. The last first day of swim lessons. The last of the firsts. […]

Mummy Pizza – Easy Halloween Dinner

By | October 10th, 2017|Food/Recipes, For the Boys, Halloween, Holidays, Party Ideas|

How fun are these Mummy pizzas?  Mummy pizzas have become a Halloween family tradition that my boys can’t live without.

Be the Good. Share the Good.

I woke up to my alarm yesterday morning the same way I do every morning. I opened my phone to see a Facebook post from a family member, who is in law enforcement, saying that he was safe but that he was heading in to Las Vegas to help his fellow officers. I knew something was terribly wrong. As I searched for news of what was going on, I came upon the news that Las Vegas had experienced the worst mass shooting in modern US history. My heart stopped. Our family had been living outside of Las Vegas for the past 12 years and just recently moved. But I have so many friends and family members- people I love dearly- who could have been right in the middle of it. As friends started checking in and I found that they were all safe, my nerves turned to feelings of anger and sadness. […]

Family, Food and Fun at Chuck E. Cheese’s

By | September 27th, 2017|Parenting|

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chuck E. Cheese’s. The opinions and text are all mine. The past 2 months have been really heavy for my kids. Moving. New Schools. New kids. Unexpected family situations. They needed a break and Chuck E. Cheese’s was calling our name! Family, Food and Fun at Chuck E. Cheese’s We have been to Chuck E. Cheese’s a few times over the years but not that my youngest could remember.  And he was thrilled!  He is still thanking me for taking him over a week later. 🙂 […]
