Hi Everyone, Happy New Year! We are excited that 2010 has arrived and feel energized for what the new year will bring. Vacation and holidays gave us the rest and change of pace that we needed after a hectic fall. We all need downtime, sleep, and a change of pace to remind us of our goals and where we want to focus our energies. This holiday season really did that for us and we are ready and eager for what is to come in this New Year. It was fun to see that our kids had the same looks...

Hi Everyone, I just got back from our first holiday road trip and it was a success! 8 hours each way in the car and we arrived home with smiles. I never would have imagined that it would have gone by so quickly and that we would be eagerly awaiting the next time. I had talked about a game plan with lots of experienced friends and stocked up on the essentials.. lots of food(fruit, goldfish, chocolate, chips), new activity books, magnet books, movies, music but still worried if I had enough to entertain my 3 kids. Shockingly, the DVD player...

Hi Everyone, It has been 2 weeks since our crew has started school and it is nice to be back into the post summer groove. There are so many emotions that come with dropping off your children for school. Whether it be a new school, new grade, or first day in kindergarten, there is so much that goes through our children's heads when they head back to school as well as our own feelings about these milestones as parents. For some parents, it is emotional and hard to separate from their preschoolers for the school day as we then look...

Hi everyone, With the arrival of summer we have being doing one of our favorite things, going through hand-me-downs! As moms with more than one child, hand-me-down clothing is one of our biggest saviors. Whether clothing gets handed down from friends, family members, or older siblings, hand-me-downs can be a wonderful time and money saver. Sharing with friends and family is a fun way to see our favorite clothes live on. I love seeing one of my child's favorite things on a family friend as it brings up great memories of remembering the clothing on my own kids. It's crazy...

Hi everyone, We both know how frustrating it can be getting your kids dressed in the morning! Whether your child wants to wear everything in their closet all at once, the same t-shirt everyday, or stripes with polka dots with plaid, the daily fighting over what to wear can be difficult and tiring. My (Talia's) youngest daughter (aged almost 4) is at the stage where she needs several choices in the morning. I find that laying out several options for her is the easiest way to have a calm morning. If I give her only one choice, she won't want...
