Mama You Made It!

Wow! As I look back on where I started in my journey I am in awe of the many things that have taken place that have evolved me into being the confident, crazy, sexy, cool (thanks TLC), person I am today. I think us as moms don’t often give ourselves enough credit for the things we have achieved.

Parental figures we are going to have to unplug the microwave and go back to the basics of … Continue reading Getting Kids To Set Goals!

We all think that once our children pass the toddler phase their temper tantrums will end. THAT IS A LIE! I know from experience the tantrums never end, life happens and sometimes we as adults throw temper tantrums. We, hopefully have learned to deal with them better than our younger days. But what do you as a parent do when your out and about and your older child has a temper tantrum, I’m talking 5-8 years old. It’s … Continue reading The Tantramatic Kindergartner- Tantrums After the Toddler Years
