Living within our means is one great lesson I've learned from becoming a mom and a homemaker. I've learned to live simply so we could live comfortably. I kissed my being a one day millionaire goodbye. That way, I've learned to budget, spend less, and be happy with what we have, and can afford.
Melissa And Doug Triangular Crayons
You can't imagine how many crayons I've been through! You all probably know they break pretty easily. Well, I've had these for almost 1 month now!
Some days at home, I wish I had super powers…the ability to complete the ever-growing number of chores in a second. The ability to keep a continuous eye on bub who is rapidly picking up speed day by day and manages to get himself stuck underneath sofas and coffee tables where he’ll plaintively keep crying until someone comes along to get him unstuck.
When I was younger I was diagnosed with a tumour. When it was diagnosed, I thought it was great as I had long been suffering from headaches and other symptoms including major hormone imbalances that mirrored signs of depression. What I didn't know, until I was sat with my consultant on my second or third visit, was that infertility was also a side effect of the tumour.
Christmas is finally over! For the longest time it felt like it would never get here then it just flew by. But now that it is out of the way I am counting down the days until my daughter goes back to school. Every single minute that passes by I feel like I am losing more of my sanity. I feel like a horrible mother saying that but it really is true. Normally my daughter goes to Preschool 3 days a week. With her being home with me 7 days a week for the last month I am sadly losing my mind.
When your children are little and they start making sounds, it's so cute. I loved the babbling and the first sounds. And of course, the first time they say, "Mommy" and "I love you", it's amazing.
Then they get older. And they start saying things like, "Relax, Mom. Just....relax." (And it's funny, I know, and it's probably just me, but whenever someone says that to me? It doesn't make me relax!)

News Years Resolution: Keep Up the Blog!
A baby's name is a very important part of his identity. In todays world,
some parents are afraid of embroidering their child's name on item for
fear that it gives too much information to the public about their child.
Some people feel that an embroidered name invites unwanted familiarity.
But a monogram reveals nothing and still makes every item that bears this
insignia unique. A monogram is a very sophisticated way of personalizing
clothes, baby blankets and toys without putting the actual name on the
item. At www.namelynewborns.com we monogram alot of baby gifts.
