Why Being Aboy Mom is Amazing

  1. They are so easy to get ready. Tshirt-Check, jeans- Check, converse sneakers-Check. Baseball cap- check. And we’re done. No leggings, no hair bows, no frilly, itchy dresses. Its so easy and he always looks so cute. And most of the time ( as long as he is wearing his red converses lately) he doesn’t care what he is wearing which means I don’t have to fight him to look nice. Ever.

I Hit Rock Bottom and It Made Me a Better Parent


I started to fail as a mom this summer. I had unknowingly given my power to a 3 year old. Ethan was driving me batty on a daily basis over things that shouldn't even matter and I let him. I lost control and had basically let him become the one with the power he was becoming a little tyrant and  I was tired, cranky and if I'm being brutally honest ( which is pretty much my point in disclosing this) I didn't care any more. My relationship with my son was horrible and I didn't know how to fix it nor did I think I had the energy. Things that didn't bother me months ago would grate my nerves and the Kindle and the TV had become my saving grace recently. Now don't get me wrong I love my son and wanted him to be nothing but happy but I thought that his happiness meant my unhappiness so I let myself become this bitter, emotionally drained, checked out parent. It was ugly, I was ugly and we fought like cats and dogs. Sometimes I didn't want to be around him and would pray for nap time or bedtime.

Essential Oils are Slowly Changing my Life

I'm being serious here. Since I've started using oils I've noticed so much of a difference with things in my daily life. I use them for everything from cleaning to sleep and they are amazing. I've met a few people who doubt there effectiveness so I thought I would give you my top 5 favorite uses for oils.

5. Soap- Remember me posting about making hand soap. Well I am still in love with it as much as I was the day I wrote the post. Its super easy and has saved me so much $. Plus its nice to use something that I know all the products that are in it.
