Dear Moms of Only Children

This topic has been on my heart lately. I have several mom friends that have one child and they so often throw me the line, “it’s easier for me, I only have one,” or “you’ve already got your hands full and I just have the one child.” Stop apologizing moms of only children, you’ve got it tough too.

I have three kids now, but for the first four years of motherhood, I had one. Many of my friends around me were having their second child. I watched them through the transition of having multiple children, and in many ways, I struggled to relate. My world as a stay at home mom wasn’t changing, but theirs was going thru a complete overhaul. I felt a little lost.

Cereal Breakfast Bars Recipe (Gluten Free!)

Cereal Breakfast Bars

These little cereal breakfast bars are my new go-to on busy mornings. With a few tweaks from the traditional cereal bars you’ve probably seen before, they pack more protein and fiber but still taste great.

Furthermore, these can easily accommodate gluten and/or nut allergies. Simply ensure that you use a gluten-free cereal (Cheerios are now gluten-free) and an alternative nut butter, like almond butter or sun butter.

In addition, these little bars are fun to make with your kids because they are so super easy and don’t even need to be baked.

How to Make a Solar Night Light

Today I’m sharing the easiest little DIY project that you can do with your kids. I came up with this solar night light idea because my four-year old daughter is scared of the dark and we’ve tried so many things to help her sleep at night, but she still sleeps with her bedside light on. I don’t think this is good for her so we worked together to make a little solar night light that she could put on her nightstand instead. She had so much fun putting it together and of course my boys wanted one too.

6 “Diet” Foods You’ll Want to Eat

six diet foods you'll want to eat

I hate the word diet and just don’t believe in dieting. Could be why I have a few extra lbs to lose, but I believe we’ve gotten a little too obsessed about what we should or shouldn’t eat, and that we spend too much time thinking about it. You know, the gluten-free, dairy free, sugar is like cocaine, that’s a wheat belly you’ve got there…message we hear everywhere. It gets confusing to know what to eat anymore.

So, I have been working on eating better, eating mostly whole foods and not overdoing it. You know, the moderation thing.
