Routine doesn’t mean life has to be boring. Your kiddos need routine! Some of you probably don’t even realize that you have a routine set for your family, but some of you might not have one at all! Your little monster might fight routine, but he secretly loves it (he just doesn’t like to be told what to do). Continue reading
Today I saw a dad and son on the sidewalk. The little boy was riding a bike with the biggest smile on his face! He was clearly loving life and enjoying the moment. The dad, on the other hand, seemed less than thrilled. He honestly looked like the weight of life was too heavy for him. He didn’t seem to notice the beautiful weather or the joy on the child’s face.

Please do not assume that I am a feminist because I am a woman. I am not. At least not a feminist in today’s society.
Most people respond to this, saying something like “You don’t believe in equal rights for women? Because that’s all feminism is.” First of all, it seems to be a lot more than that. There’s a stereotype put on feminists that I do not want to be associated with.

It’s especially important to strengthen those neck muscles because babies are more likely to suffocate when they cannot move their faces away from soft objects.
Here are some tips/facts for tummy time: Continue reading
I absolutely love kids. Children are my passion. Ask Mr. Rockefeller… if there is a baby in the room, good luck getting me to focus on anything else. They make me so happy and they’re so darn cute! But have you ever thought about how much we can learn about God from kids?
Luke 18:15-17 says “People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Continue reading
