Heart Month

With heart month beginning in just a few days, I just can’t help but blog about it! Why not right!? Maybe I should explain why I am so passionate about heart month.My second son was born with heart disease.

Last January, his heart was weakening again and just this past September, he had yet another open heart surgery. Even before Finn, I had a passion for spreading heart awareness. When I was...

Safety First: Car Seats

Parents, grandparents, caretakers of children,   May I share my heart with you on one issue of car seat safety? So many times, in photos and in person, I see the babies in their bulky, puffy coats squeezed under the harnesses of their seats. I did it too with my oldest sometimes. You pull that strap to tighten it down as much as you can, but then you loosen it a smidge to ensure they can breathe. I also see those chest clips low across their ribs or bellies. Or the gaps above their shoulders where...

Should you try Babywearing?

Hey Mamas! Let’s chat about BABY WEARING!  Before I became a mama I couldn’t wait to be able to wear my baby around but was definitely nervous about all the options that are out there!  Babywearing: Everything You Need To Know to Wear Your Baby Safely & In Style So I did my research & came across 3 main types of “baby wearing”. The more well known, structured kind- such as a Baby Bjorn or an Ergo carrier. Then there was the very “ancestor” way of baby wearing with the wrap style. This method definitely...

This Mess I'm In!

If you came to my front door today without any notice, you would find a scene similar to this. I'm curious. What do you see? What would be your first thoughts walking into my living room? Even better, what if I dropped by and it was YOUR living room? If I am honest, most of the time I see a mess. I see work. I see it as a chore. And I feel tired looking at it. I can't be the only one who thinks this way. I see piles of laundry needing to be...

How to talk to your kids about how babies are made?

  Oh Mommyhood! Moms, I need your help! My boys are just turned four and about to turn three. A few weeks ago, I learned that the famous April the giraffe is pregnant again!

They have had the movie Boss Baby on repeat all week. Now, if you haven’t seen Boss Baby, it’s adorable. BUT, it talks about where babies come from and NOW my kids...

Handsocks Mama Blog: Interruption to Normal

  When your day-to-day is reasonably predictable and things usually go the way you expect them to, even a small thing out of the ordinary can catch you off-guard. Recently, one morning threw me a little curve ball. We were leaving my one-year-old's checkup and headed for an x-ray of her hips instead of home for her nap time and schoolwork for the big kids.   I tend to be a worst-case-scenario thinker. My baby could possibly have an issue that would need correcting. It could be stressful, inconvenient, uncomfortable, and a complete interruption to our...

Red CARpet Safety Event 2017

As a new parent I remember bringing our Jillian home from the hospital and feeling overwhelmed that first night with many different feelings, many of them around her safety. I had lost the surrounding army of qualified medical professionals to care for her. I'd be responsible for everything to keep her alive and happy, and that all started with the ride home from the hospital and her first trip as a little bean in our carseat.
