Reconnecting With Family… A to Z Challenge

With it being Easter weekend we are spending a lot of time visiting family. I have a very large extending family. I never see everyone as often as I would like to, and now as we are all getting older the extended family doesn’t always get together. I miss it greatly. For as long as I can remember every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas the whole family would get together; I got to see my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! As the years passed these family gatherings were the only times I would see my cousins. Now that I am “married” and have children I hardly ever see my aunts, uncles and cousins. Our family’s have just gotten too big, on my dad’s side I think there is over 40 of us if we were to all get together(my grandparents have 12 great grandchildren, and more to come)!

Quiet Time, The Best Part Of The Day For A Parent… A to Z Challenge

Quiet time, whether it’s nap time or bedtime is always awesome when you are a parent. When you are busy running around after a toddler that break in the middle of the day gives you the energy to keep going in the afternoon.

Quiet time, why I love nap time

Sometimes when the kids sleep it’s nice to cuddle up and join them for a snooze. It’s hard work being a parent you are aloud a rest too.

My favorite part about bedtime is not that I can wash more laundry and clean up the house (however these are great parts too) My favorite thing to do is watch them sleep. Watching a baby sleep is awesome. Even as that baby grows, even when they are a preteen watching them sleep is still a very relaxing way to pass time.

Parenting… A to Z Challenge

I think of myself as an attachment parent. To me this means that I do what is best for my child, always thinking about them before myself and getting back to a natural way of parenting.  For me attachment parenting is the choices I have made in parenting. This includes but not limited to choosing home birth, breastfeeding, leaving boys intact, responding to my babies when they cry, co-sleeping, baby wearing, practicing elimination communication and positive parenting. Does that mean that if you formula feed, use a stroller or had a c-section you can’t be an attachment parent? NO! The choices you make as a parent are hard enough, trying to fit a style of parenting perfectly is NEVER going to happen, it will only cause more stress.Always time for play Continue reading
