It's somewhat easy and difficult to just plan a little outdoor session with my kids. Easy in the sense that it's just a little day out at the park to enjoy the sun, but difficult to pack and plan for it. Gotta love parent life, there is never a dull moment! I'm sharing my must have items for a day out in the sun to help moms like it make it easier to plan for activities. Less is more! But honestly though, even it is less items that we bring, it somehow feels like a lot? What do you think?
SIMPLIFY MOTHERHOOD WITH A FAST MEAL FOR THOSE BUSY DAYS. THANKS TO TAIPEI & I-C FOR SPONSORING THIS POST!
As a mother of three children and running a business out of my home, some days can just simply be chaotic. I have what seems like a simple routine everyday. Simple, yet complicated because time seems to move even faster than I expect it to. I am a mama of many jobs: a chauffeur, cleaning lady, business woman, and lastly, a cook. My youngest has half day school so I have about two and a half hours in between not including driving time. After dropping off the kids at school, I turn the dial from chauffeur to work at home mom and get right to work. I enjoy being able to work from home and even though it can be stressful at times, I make sure to put aside a little time to take care of myself when it’s time for a break. I am not the type to spend thirty minutes or so to prepare my lunch because when it’s time for my break, I prefer the fast route without sacrificing what I’m actually craving. I love and prefer Asian Food most of the time and I am so thankful that I can have a quick yet tasty meal without any effort. Taipei single serve meals are such an easy way to quickly grab my meal and eat right there and then. I grab my iPad, put on my favorite Netflix show, and enjoy my lunch time before transforming to a chauffeur once again!
HELP YOUR KIDS TO THINK BEFORE THEY SPEAK WITH A SIMPLE FELT LETTER BOARD IN THEIR ROOM & A DEVOTIONAL BOOK JUST FOR KIDS. THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS.
As a parent, we know and understand that little children will often speak out of turn due to their immediate reaction towards certain things. We often do it ourselves when our patience flies out the door. Sometimes I look back in my. own childhood and remember certain disciplinary actions from my own parents that still stands true today and will stand in generations to come. Not all disciplinary practices only happen after a mishap, but can be prevented and taught by taking the time each day to read a good word. I have always been a reader as a young girl and I believe that reading is the most important way to instill messages in our children's thought process. Reading takes time and effort. It also requires a long attention span that will help with discipline and patience.
CREATE YOUR OWN CANVAS PHOTOGRAPHS AS A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO WALL DECORATING. THANKS TO PHOTOGRAPHY.COM FOR SPONSORING THIS POST!
Home decorating is one of my passions as a mama, there is something about this specific activity that just makes me so happy! There's a joyful feeling it gives when I decorate a room to create a signature that speaks our family. My husband and I both love taking photos especially for our family Christmas pictures that we take each year. This past Christmas family picture, it meant more sentimentally because it was our first Christmas picture in our new house! We are not quite finished with decorating and there is a large bare wall in our living room that we have been waiting to decorate, but wasn't sure how exactly. With all things, not just with home decorating, it takes time to fulfill a vision! Since we truly loved how our Christmas pictures turned out, what better way than to turn it into canvas wall decor?
TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN COMFORT WITH PACKING SOME BAMBOO SOCKS DURING YOUR TRAVEL! THANKS TO MD SHAPER FOR SPONSORING THIS POST.
Family trips are something I always cherish and look forward to during school breaks or long weekends. It’s a time where we make memories so our children remember the fun moments they’ve had as a family when they were little. Of course, as the mama bear, I am always the one to pack for everyone, and I am not complaining because this Mama loves to pack! Sometimes I could unintentionally put myself least in the list of whom to pack for and forget the important things I need to pack for myself. For this family trip, I decided to pack my bag first and interestingly... I finished my packing duties a lot faster this way! Two of the most needed items whenever I travel are hoodies and comfortable socks. It's interesting to think about how something little as socks can make an impact to how our days are like. We are mostly spending our time outside when we travel and wearing the right socks is crucial to all the walking we do.
The famous quote that says time flies is always so true. I don’t feel like I turned another year older, but my birth certificate says so! Each year I get older, the less interest I have to celebrate it solely for myself... so often times I’m quite confused on what to do for this day. My family and I used to live in a wonderful neighborhood close to where we used to live in Portland, and we haven’t seen our neighbors in a while. I thought this would be a great opportunity to take the trip down there! Realizing that we could even do something like this makes me extremely thankful of the life that God has blessed me with.
