As a mom, one of my hopes is that my kids will have a wonderful childhood with a lot of fun memories that they will love looking back on when they’re older. And every time the season changes, I see it as a huge opportunity to give them fun memories they will surely treasure by doing different activities they’ll get to enjoy. Like every fall, I make sure we go to a fall festival or we go apple picking. And since we’re already midway through February, I am so excited for the weather to FINALLY warm up so I can spend some…

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. Being the excited mom that I am, I rushed to my nearest Target the first chance I got and purchased this potty. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn’t do anything after that because her school won’t be able to do potty training until she’s in the 2’s room. Since my husband and I work full time during weekdays and she’s mostly in school, we didn’t want her getting confused; so we decided to wait until she has moved up to the 2’s room, where they’ll be taught how to use the potty, before we start potty training at home.

With winter being over soon (that’s what I want to believe), it’s time to get excited about Spring. I don’t know about you but I am ALWAYS looking forward to spring as soon as January starts. I guess because at this point, I am so done with the freezing temperature. One thing that always gets me excited for spring (or any season really), is when I have to shop for key pieces to update my wardrobe. So if you’re looking to update your spring wardrobe, you’ve come to the right place. Today, I’m sharing fun yet practical spring must have essentials you need…

Pregnant and have no money for maternity clothes? There is absolutely no need to buy maternity clothes. In one of my earlier posts, where I listed must have baby items for first time moms, I mentioned that I managed to get through my pregnancies without maternity clothes, not even a single one. And it’s not because my belly was so small that I didn’t even have to; I just didn’t want to. Why? First, they’re expensive; and second (at least for me), there’s not much variety. In this post, I will share how you can avoid buying maternity clothes during…

When I got pregnant with my daughter, just like most first-time moms, I knew nothing about motherhood. I didn’t know what stuff to get and what I shouldn’t, which stuff works and which don’t. Google was my friend back then; I went through several different sites and got overwhelmed with all the different  information I found. One website was saying I need this but another one was saying I don’t. It was helpful of course, but it was also confusing for me. So I had to step back, got my Belly Book and started listing some things I thought would be useful; then I reviewed the list that I have against the lists available online. After a few additions and removal, my list was complete.
