Oh the Places We Go

Oh the Places We Go

“Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!” Dr. Seuss My first carrier was a homemade stretchy wrap. I took 5 yards of jersey fabric that was on clearance, cut it in half length-wise and BOOM I had my first carrier. It held Owen for the first few months […]

Unlatched.

Unlatched.

That photo was taken last week. My little nursing enjoying a mid-afternoon snack while at the Graceland parking lot. The last time Atticus latched was at 6:27am on July 26th. He bit me for the upteenth time in a week, and my heart knew we had to change something. Kevin suggested we go buy a […]

The Babysitter

The Babysitter

So I have this babysitter that my kids LOVE! She comes whenever I need her to and will stay as long or as short as needed. She is even willing to travel with us. The best part, she’s practically free. She is the TV! We don’t have cable/satellite at home so we stick to PBS Kids. […]

Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies

Yes you read that right…Black Bean Brownies.  When I first heard of these on a Mom’s board I am on, I thought to myself……ew.  I don’t really like beans so the thought of putting them into delicious brownies and wasting a whole bunch of ingredients sounded like a bad idea to me.  Then people started […]
