Spilled Milk

They say you should never cry over spilled milk ... and then they remind you that spilling breast milk is a totally different ball game.  But have you ever spilled milk.  ... It was at breakfast the other day, my boys were all gathered around the table waiting rather...

Oh the TOYS!

Oh the toys, everywhere. They are literally overflowing from every nook and cranny of our home, our NEW home. The one that I've spent countless hours over the last two months, dreaming of how super organized and Pinterest worthy it would be. And yet, despite the fact...

Don’t say “schedule”

Don't laugh but when I decided that I would be a stay at home mom ... or at least when I was pregnant with my first son and I tossed around the idea a little, I actually thought that I would have so much free time.  I would be able to get all the things done with...

Tidying, Organizing, Minimalizing … Doing it all?

Is it just me or did everything all of a sudden launch into tidying up?  Now, I know that I live in a bit of a hobbit hole being a stay at home mom, with no access to a car, and living in the "country", and I HAVE seen on the Facebook that there is a new Netflix...

6 TOP Oils to Put You In The MOOD

Spring Ready Body

Spring has sprung and it is time to put away the winter coats and boots (almost, I meant it is still a risk that you might get caught in 6 inches of snow).

It’s that crazy transition time when the weather is slightly above freezing and every Canadian is out in shorts, a t-shirt and their cracking Birkenstocks from three years past. Everyone and their brother is soaking in the “heat” as our bodies accustom to the changes in season.

As more skin shows, more self doubt sets in (am I right mommies). Here is my simple tip for ROCKING your mom bod this spring!

Just 5 More Minutes

Jumping out of bed with joy and pep seems impossible as a mom who is knee deep in the trenches of sleep feedings and nightmares.

Starting your day with intention and a plan, heck, setting an alarm, seems like a practice in futility when your children will – GUARANTEED – wake up before anything and throw your good intentions out the window faster than that last precious moment of peaceful slumber.

Why though?

What’s stopping us from starting right as mothers?

Coconut Oil – “I Put that $#!+ on Everything”

I always knew you could use coconut oil in cooking as a healthy alternative, I even found a number of modern applications for it in our home health care routine but when my midwife suggested it could help spice up our sex life I … cringed.

First of all, I had dropped a clue I hadn’t expected … our sex life felt like it was on life support with a DNR more than it did a couple in love. Second, admitting that we might need a boost felt like admitting my lady bits didn’t operate as well as they used to.

Admitting I am getting older and that there are fault lines appearing in our marriage.

Mother Idols

Suppressing our feelings is like shaking a bottle of pop. For as long as those feelings remain behind tightly closed lips, the bottle shakes and quivers, building up the pressure and awaiting release.

Start opening that bottle cap the tiniest little bit and you bet that baby is going to blow!

Girl – It’s OK

Being a mom in todays world is HARD! Everywhere you look people are screaming that you need to do more, be more, expect more. What about being content?
