Mother’s Day Card for Grandma

It has taken me until the end of today to post this as I wanted to make sure the 2 wonderful grandmas got the real card before seeing it on-line.  The best part about this homemade card is that it can be for any time; Birthday, Mother’s Day or just because.

My kids and I had a lot of fun making these cards. I love including the kids hand prints and foot print as it gives that personal feeling that you can’t always get with little ones who can’t color yet. However William was very able to add his coloring to the card this time.

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.

Quiet time, what I love about nap time and bed time

What is your favorite thing about quiet 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
