    MY KID FREE WEEK + NEW FAVE JUMPSUIT

    Ah, I’m sad to say my kid free week of carefree, unscheduled, restful nights has come to an end. I’m back in Texas to grab the babes and visit with our family for a week and as much as I’m loving all the snuggles, I wouldn’t have minded a tiny bit longer break.
    So how was it? It was amazing… if you have parents or sisters or whomever that are willing to take your kids so you can have a…

    How and why I take breaks from Motherhood without feeling guilt | raising twins | thoughtsbybrandi.com

      GUILT FREE BREAKS

      I knew early on after the babes were born that in order for me to be the absolute best mom I could be, I needed scheduled, guilt free breaks and the occasional night off. As the babes have grown, and my career has shifted to a “work from home mom”, my need to have guilt free breaks has grown even stronger. I need me time. Time from the chaos that is twins, time away from the hugs and skinned…

      What's In My Bag - Diaper Bag Essentials for the Toddler Mom

        WHAT’S IN MY BAG – TODDLER MOM EDITION

        As the seasons of Motherhood has changed, so have the things I often pack in my bag. Lately, I’ve been ditching the diaper bag and just grabbing my ToteSavvy bag to toss in my favorite straw market bag. One of the perks of being a toddler mom means toting around a few less things! The ToteSavvy is easier and lighter than my diaper bag and if I want, I can just toss it into the bottom of the stroller…

        Discipline Dumps | Thoughts By B | a post about finding the right type of discipline to work for our family and some resources I'm using.

          DISCIPLINE DUMPS AND PARENTING EPIPHANIES

          I have been struggling beyond words lately (which some what explains my absence in this little space of mine) because I’ve been in the discipline dumps and recently experienced a HUGE parenting epiphany. I AM NOT A PRESCHOOL MOM… I mean I am, I have two preschool aged children, what I’ve recently realized is that I’m not confident in my abilities to parent this age. Up until a few months ago, I was almost overly confident in my parenting…

            PICKY PRESCHOOLER LUNCHES WITH HAPPY TOT YOGURT

            Raise your hand if you’ve ever packed your preschooler a lunch only to discover they suddenly don’t like a single thing you’ve packed! This has been an ongoing theme in our home lately and it can seriously make a mama a bit nutty! Speaking of nuts, our preschool is nut free… which, most are these days, and no nuts means no peanut butter so that rules out one of the four things my preschoolers will eat for lunch. Trying…

            My top tips for patient parenting and keeping your cool with your toddler by Brandi of Thoughts By B

              PATIENT PARENTING | WHAT WORKS FOR ME

              Toddler tantrums are a force to be reckon’ with and lately, we’ve had our fair share, and patient parenting isn’t always on my mind. Between 2 toddlers learning and exerting independence and experimenting with boundaries, the meltdowns are so often, I’ve almost come to expect and anticipate them. One thing I’ve been working on that is OH SO IMPORTANT is keeping my cool when sh*t hits the fan, even at 90mph! Now, I’m no parenting expert but there’s a…

                We have a tiny house and finding space to spread out in less than a thousand square feet can sometimes feel impossible. But even with limited space, we made sure to get a king sized bed, to enjoy family time together.
