Who would’ve thought that I would use cloth diapers? ​Not with Baby #4. Well, ​Yah I did it​.​ You’re probably wondering why the change. Especially because he was over the age of 1 year old when I started and would soon to be potty trained in a year or so. Well, I did it because I found that we were spending WAY ​TOO MUCH​ on traditional diapers.

The feeling of bringing a child into the world is an indescribable feeling, and cannot be compared to anything else in life. It’s almost unreal, supernatural, simply magical! To feel excruciating pain one minute and pure joy and a burst of love the next minute when you physically see your baby on the other side of your womb!

Breastfeeding, while natural, is often difficult. Many problems can creep in and threaten to stop you from breastfeeding. The good news is that virtually every problem that comes along with breastfeeding can be fixed.

Creating your baby registry can be fun and exciting, or it can be a huge frustration. In many cases, soon after we mommies jump into the deep sea of baby gear, we find that deciding which items to include is not so easy. As an almost third time mommy, I’ve got some experience with this and I’ve done the research. This list of 25 must-haves will assist you in building a fabulous registry.

Divorce is something you will never forget, no matter how hard you try to, at first life is a whirlwind. There’s a lot of adjusting and a lot of worrying about what’s next for you and your child(ren). You are likely more concerned about what is the best way to try to keep your child’s life as “normal” and less effected as possible.

I had bought into the dream of literally having it all at every moment of the day, and I was the one who suffered the most from that illusion. It is practically impossible to “do it all” or “have it all” without sacrificing something. Something always has to give. No matter how much help you get, you’re still only one you, and that’s a good thing. So, what to do?  Be present.

I don’t know what happens in 7th grade, but apparently that is when hormones start to rage. Let me preface this by assuring you that when it comes to dating, my son is not allowed to have a girlfriend. But according to him, he’s dated 3 girls this year. In his defense, he didn’t know there was a strict no girlfriend policy because we never discussed it. I mean, when is the perfect time to discuss the rules around relationships? And even more terrifying, when is the perfect age to discuss the birds and the bees?

Although my boys have gone swimming many times, they had never taken swim lessons before and I found myself feeling afraid anytime we went to the pool and they swam to close to the deep end. Have you ever had that feeling? Well, earlier this year I decided to enroll all three of my boys, Jayden, 11, Chase, 8, and Kaleb, 3, in swim classes at Goldfish Swim School in Fishers.

Many of you reading this blog may identify yourself as a Millennial parent. And with that title comes quite the burden, as our generation is widely criticized as being self-absorbed, which, as parents, is an unfortunate criticism. I choose to flip this myth! Why can’t we simply enjoy our self care or believe in taking breaks to refresh ourselves? Having time alone to decompress helps adults to be better parents and create stress free, loving environments in which to raise children.

Just recently two different people, on two different days, at two different places commented on my Parenting style while observing…

Pregnancy is the most beautiful experience you can have as a woman. However, weight gain, hair changes, skin problems, lack of sleep, etc… will have you feeling anything but beautiful. My first trimester was a bit rough due to morning sickness and I slowly started losing myself and my confidence.

My son Luke will be 6 months soon and it gives me a great sense of mommi pride to know that we haven’t had to run to the store for baby items. Diapers, wipes, baby wash, you name it…I’m pretty sure his closet is a mini baby aisle thanks to me creating a massive baby stockpile in less than two months. Couponing isn’t always as easy as it sounds, so I wanted to create a beginners guide to creating diaper (baby) stockpile:

It was surreal, indescribable, it was Magical!Seeing my baby for the first time rocked my world! I couldn’t do anything but scream and cry, she was perfect! I couldn’t believe she was actually mine, so many emotions ran through my mind,  I was smitten.

The Mommi journey is a long one. With a roller coaster of emotions and experiences. Once you find out you’re pregnant I suggest joining the Mommination approved What To Expect (when you’re expecting) app. It’s a great place to learn from and share with a community of women who are going through the journey at the exact time as you! It’s helpful during pregnancy and beyond. My eldest is two and I still check in with that community to see what’s normal, whats not and how other two year olds are developing.

It has taken me a little over 13 years and 6 kids to figure out that I don’t have all of the answers for the many obstacles motherhood has thrown at me. To clarify, I don’t believe anyone does. I was however, without any answers, prior experience or training, going to be the best mom ever. Ironically, I have failed more times than I have succeeded.

Wives! We should pray about a sexless marriage every day, and here is why!

After I prayed this prayer, I was not too thrilled with the answer. I had a deep feeling in my gut that it was best to stay home. I wasn’t sure how long, but knew this was needed for these specific children God had given me.
