A lot of Los Angeles families vacation in the Palm Springs area.
We try to get out to Palm Springs at least once a month (Brian’s parents live there)
What is hard is finding activities for the kids.
So, we have made it our mission to find kid-friendly entertainment in the area.
Our latest adventure- The Living Desert in Palm Desert, California
This wildlife conservation center is what I can only describe as an organic zoo.
The animals are up- … Keep Reading!!!
Mayim Bialik came out with a new Attachment Parenting book, Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way.
This book has stirred up a lot of emotion among mothers practicing different parenting styles.
The hot topic has been co-sleeping.
We are a co-sleeping family. I co-slept with my parents as a child, and Brian and I co-sleep with our children.
I thought co-sleeping was almost a non-issue in the US, but I … Keep Reading!!!
I am obsessed with The Hunger Games
I was at the book store today and I saw it on a stand that said “teen fiction.” Not my favorite literary term. I cringed when I saw the label because I am currently reading the series.
I’m starting a new monthly series about mothers that have changed the world. Whether it be by changing the way we think, the way we live, or the way we treat each other.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how the word mother gets thrown around to people who are truly not qualified for the title. We tend to focus on these females in our conversations and in the the news media.
I want to take away the focus … Keep Reading!!!
Did you know? $1 can give clean water to one person for over a decade.
Why is water life-altering?
Confession: I hate politics. Sort of…
Okay, in itself that isn’t a worthwhile confession, but my political views are.
It came to my attention the other day that I quite possibly am a closet anarchist.
Why I hate politics:
I love people. Period.
My personal goal in life is striving to understand why people believe what they do. In situations when I do this correctly, if there was any judgement to begin with, it will be gone when I reach … Keep Reading!!!
1. Tell us about your personal breastfeeding experience with your child:
When my first son was born, I knew I wanted to breastfeed – I just underestimated how much of a challenge it would be in the beginning. I probably didn’t sleep for the first five days of his life – a combination of him waking up, and me being freaked out because I couldn’t get it to “work” right. As soon as I could, I … Keep Reading!!!
Today is my SITS Day! (It’s a big deal!)
So, here is a little about who I am and about this blog for all my fellow SITS sisters and new readers-
I’m the mother of two beautiful boys.
This picture pretty much sums up my life- I can’t tame my children or my hair:
but my kids love me:
I am a Christian.
I am a … Keep Reading!!!
It has come to my attention that a lot of bloggers have never heard of The SITS Girls before.
Well, you should.
The SITS Girls is an online community of women that was created to support one another in blogging, and just life in general.
I have met so many wonderful friends through SITS (some online and some in “real life.”)
SITS is a great place to join if you:
There are so many great movies coming out
Do you know what every person in our house is waiting for?
It’s coming to theatres May 4, 2012
That is a lifetime away to my children. Luckily, the trailer was just released
Not to disappoint- this movie looks like it is going to be awesome.
Samuel for the past month will scream, “AVENGERS, ASSEMBLE,” throughout the day. 🙂
