WEEK ONE: Take Back My Mind & Make Priorities

Click Mom Takes Back the House to read the introduction to the series and all posted installments. WELCOME TO WEEK ONE—GROUND ZERO! If anything is cluttered, it’s my mind. It started when I was pregnant with the twins, so I called it “pregnancy brain.”  But, even after they were born, it just kept happening.  I had […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Mars vs Venus: The Curse of Adam & Eve

If I am being completely honest, there are days that I wish I could take a mulligan.  I wish I could do them over.  As fun and smile-y as I seem, I have quite the irritable side that only comes out to play at home.  You know what I’m talking about, right?  I know I’m […]
