DIY Baby Bottom Wash

I know, I know. I have been MIA for over a week. I don’t have an excuse. Actually, that isn’t true. I have three excuses (four if you count the dog) AND I have started a summer course to upgrade for University. I have been busy, busy, busy!

Excuses aside, I am back to share a DIY recipe with you today. We cloth diaper (80% of the time) and use cloth wipes most of the time. I used to use straight up water but after purchasing the Honest Company bum wash I became spoiled. Water just can’t cut through the poop like a diaper spray can and I looove the smell. It is like aromatherapy every time I change a diaper. … Read More DIY Baby Bottom Wash

6 Unique Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

My husband works on the weekend and has for many years. I hate it for many reasons but one is that we can’t celebrate Father’s Day on the actual day. We always make up for it later on in the week though! We always try to do something a little bit different. I wanted to share some unique ways of celebrating Father’s Day this year in case you are over the traditional BBQ.… Read More 6 Unique Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

Can Working Moms Have it All?

Today I took the baby to visit my workplace. It was so nice to see everyone and show off my new little man. The strange part was seeing how everything was moving on without me. There is a lot of changes happening and I am at home knowing nothing about it. Don’t get me wrong, I am not an integral part of the process. I didn’t expect the whole place to stop moving once I went on leave but seeing how the world kept on going got me thinking.

I have taken an extended leave from work and since I am in Canada that means when I go back my youngest will be 18 months old. Obviously, I am very lucky. We will be past the hardest part when I return but parenting doesn’t end there. When I return to work in September 2018 I will still be the mother of three. I will also be a University student and have two jobs (both of which mean a lot to me). When I think I about it I get hives. It is a scary thought but I also know I have done it before (although with one less child). This time last year I was a full-time University student with two jobs and two kids. I got through it, and so did they. I would like to think we are all better because of it.… Read More Can Working Moms Have it All?

Live Intentional | 101 Goals in 1001 Days

I often find myself wondering what the point of this all is. I get up and do the same menial tasks over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family and my life is pretty damn good. I can’t complain really. I do however, wonder if there is some way I can get through every day with more intention. I am always hoping to live my life with intention but lose direction easily.

The first step for me is always making goals that I know I can meet but they are generally small and short lived. By trying 101 goals in 1001 days I can try to meet smaller and larger goals at the same time. Some of these will be easy to accomplish and some will need weeks or months to plan. My hope is to stay focused longer and ultimately live everyday with more intention.… Read More Live Intentional | 101 Goals in 1001 Days

How to Help a Mom with Postpartum Depression and My Story.

May is Postpartum Depression Awareness month and we should all start to talk about it. Postpartum depression does not discriminate. It isn’t reserved for the “lesser” Mom or the one that is an all-star. It doesn’t always announce itself loudly but then again sometimes it screams it’s name. It doesn’t just effect the Mom in question, it touches everyone in her life and beyond. Postpartum depression can change a marriage, ruin a job, and destroy a person – if not handled. What is more crazy to think; postpartum depression is common. More common than you might think; someone you know and love could be suffering right now.… Read More How to Help a Mom with Postpartum Depression and My Story.
