When it comes to my kids, their health and happiness are my two biggest concerns. After that, it’s most important to me to raise them to be the best kind of people they can be.
I take food very seriously in our home, because my husband has a lot of food allergies. This means we are very careful with what we let into our home. That means our kids eat a diet that is gluten-free, and full of fresh veggies and fruits.
We are also committed to raising our kids without spoiling them, and teaching them the value of working hard for what you have in life. We think it’s actually a good thing for kids to not get everything that they want, because it helps build them into better people.
Children can be a lot of work, and they don’t always make life easier. I strive to help you enjoy your children more and stress over them less!
Have you ever been frustrated by your kids’ tendency to gravitate toward junk food? I know I have! Given the choice between a Cheeto and a carrot stick, my son will take the Cheeto every time. Highly palatable food is prevalent in our culture, there’s no getting around it. But there’s Keep Reading
Depending on your school district, Spring break is either here, or right around the corner.

Being six is tough. Or at least, that’s how it looks when I ask my six-year-old son to sit still for five minutes. Unfortunately for both of us, school works takes a lot more than five minutes a day. I know that my son isn’t a bad kid - he’s actually a very good kids except for when he’s Keep Reading
When I was little, my mom used to take us to a studio in the mall to get our pictures taken. Monthly baby pictures, school pictures, family pictures, Christmas pictures. You name it, we were there. However, when I had my own kids, I knew that wasn’t going to be possible for us. Not only did Keep Reading
I’ve gone through cycles in my parenting - sometimes multiple times per day - where at the top, I loved and enjoyed my kids so much I thought my heart might burst, then on the bottom, finding them incredibly annoying and wishing they would just be quiet for a minute so I could get something Keep Reading
Healthy snacking is hard, and I don’t just mean for kids. It’s hard for adults too. I mean, first, you have to make something, or at the very least, wash and cut something, which takes time. To be honest, I stopped keeping a stash of homemade goodies on hand, when I realized how nutritionally Keep Reading
I know articles like this have been done over and over in internet land, but almost every day I am just astounded by some of the things I really never thought I’d say - ever - before I had kids. It can be both the most amusing, and the most frustrating thing in the world, and sometimes it’s hard Keep Reading
A lot of parents are a bit afraid to fly with their kids. I’m sure we’ve all read a scathing article or two on some equally scathing blog about how annoying it is to fly near children. They cry, they kick the seat in front of them, they don’t respect personal space boundaries. But I’m here to Keep Reading
