The dreaded doorbell. It is a mom’s worst nightmare. Have you experienced the horror of the doorbell during nap time yet? It’s not pretty. Let me tell you how it usually goes: Fussy baby needs a nap. Fussy baby won’t go down for a nap without a lot of nursing and a LOT of rocking, rocking, rocking. So tired mommy nurses and rocks (and rocks, and rocks) fussy baby until finally, FINALLY, fussy baby falls asleep. Tired mommy carefully lays fussy baby down in her crib, holding her breath so as not to breathe too loudly and wake fussy baby up. Very slowly,…

When you are able to love on them, wear them, enjoy their baby rolls, make them giggle and smile, and then give them back to their mothers. 😉 All of it is the absolute best. The day I became an aunt, I was so excited. Oliver, my nephew, is the first baby in the family so we all have been enjoying our time with him. I believe every mother deserves a little break here and there so I have tried to help out and…

This post was originally published on Sense & Serendipity. I have been dreaming about having a magnolia wreath for about a year now. Everywhere I’ve looked to buy one, though, I’ve nearly been knocked down by the price tags. $50 plus dollars for a wreath–seriously?! No, thanks. It drives my husband crazy, but when I want something that I find too expensive, I usually find a way to make it myself. Accordingly, I found a way to make a beautiful magnolia wreath for less than $25. So much better, right? Full disclosure: I had some of my supplies on hand…

I’ve done it, you guys! I’ve accomplished my 2016 resolution by completing my growing organically series and choosing better and healthier options for myself all year. I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself since the majority of people (including myself) don’t make it past the first few months. My mind and body are also grateful for these changes that I’ve made. 🙂 For my final month, I’ve decided to replace all of the cleaning products in my home with green options. There are many benefits for using environmentally friendly cleaning products in our homes, and as a new year begins,…

What (Most) Moms Really Want For Christmas

Friday, December 23, 2016 By Jessica Tomes
the real gifts that moms want for christmas, baby chick

Ask a mom what she wants for Christmas. I dare you. She will probably respond with something altruistic like, “I want nothing more than my family’s health and happiness.” Or “I really don’t need anything. I have plenty. Maybe peace on Earth, or a cure to childhood cancer?” Because we’re moms, and this is what we do. We deflect. We constantly worry about taking too much time for ourselves, and don’t even ask us to spend money on something silly like a day at the spa. Nope, not gonna happen. It’s like when you become a mom, you start to…
