How My Kids Eat Free Every Night

I love to cook for my family, but being a stay-at-home mom of 3 small children (while being pregnant with a fourth), I really hit my physical & emotional limit by 6pm.  That’s dinner time around here.  There have been times when I’ve just sat at the table sobbing tears of exhaustion while the Hubby […]

Kid-Approved Recipe: Kale-Almond-Banana Smoothie

Okay.  I admit it.  I’m guilty of indulging my three-year-olds’ picky eating habits.  Some days, all they eat are goldfish, string cheese, and Cuties.  Other days, corn dogs and DiGiorno pizza.  And tater tots.  Boy, do they love tater tots. Mealtime is just another war that I can be too tired to wage with willful mini-mes. I […]

Making the Everyday a Holiday

It really is the simple things that make life special.  My husband and I had a whim to make the 9th of every month Kissy Day.  Every family member (pets, too) on the 9th every month gets nearly attacked with sweet little kisses.  We have been doing it for probably a decade now (maybe more) […]

How to Be Happy in One Simple Step

I guess I don’t have to tell you how elusive happiness can be.  You get depressed just looking at your Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter feed–seeing how cool everyone else’s life is. Everyone knows THAT mom.  The one who has it all together.  She always has a smile on her face.  There’s never a hair out of […]

Giving Thanks – A Blessed Mom’s Mealtime Prayer

When the girls began eating baby food at four months old, we started blessing each meal.  Giving thanks.  Sure they didn’t have a clue, but it was about getting in the routine.  Setting a precedent. Remember that simple mealtime blessing? “God is Great, God is Good. Let us thank Him for our food. By His […]

Sickness Readiness Kit for Flu Season

  Every night, we pray with and over the Wee Allens.  Among the things we pray for and against, we pray that they will be healthy—that any virus or illness they come into contact with will be short-lived in their bodies.  If at that time they are battling sickness, we proclaim that by HIS stripes […]

Why Your Best Isn’t Good Enough

I took out running today in the humid, after-rain morning sun.  As I mentioned in a previous post, The Mommy-Tummy Challenge, I’ve never been what you could call “athletic.”  I know I could have been what with my sturdy legs and family history of basketball players (mom & aunts) and track runner/football player (dad), but […]
