Thankfully, I have been SO blessed that both of my boys have LOVED books since they were super young. Since they both love books so much they, of course, get a TON of wear.

Why You Should Skip Writing A Birth Plan First Time Mom: Birth Story Birth stories! Ah! Reading/watching birth stories is probably one of my favorite things to do. I know a lot of people don’t view birth to be a “beautiful” thing like many people try to depict it as.

6 Ways To Keep Your Children Happy While Shopping (Disclaimer: We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.)               Most nights I plan a whole to-do list in my head. Typically, going out and running errands makes it on that list. However, before morning even hits, I’ve usually talked myself out of it. The idea of taking children into public, especially while outnumbered, is TERRIFYING! While 99% of the time they may be complete angels… it’s that 1% chance that…
