Home School Books

I’ve had a few people ask me, what books we are using to Home School. We are still working on our choices. We made some initial choices last month at our first meeting with the program we are going through for help. We ended up choosing to go with an assistance program through a nearby…

Hauls: Usborne Books

Over the past few months I have been exposed to the direct sales company, Usborne Books & More. I had heard of them before but had never really been interested or sold on them. Then a cousin hosted a party with a consultant who was absolutely spectacular. In fact she was so good that a…

BabyM: ONE year?!

As always I am a few months late with this update. BabyM turned one year old back in April. To be fair I actually wasn’t even around the week of her birthday because that was training week for my current job. We still had a big weekend bash for her and I put up all…

Home School Options

We are very lucky in where we live. Not only does our country allow home schooling but our state is fairly supportive of home schooling. We are even given options for support when home schooling. We can have as little as we are off and running on our own to being dual-enrolled for extra-curricular activities…

Personality

Part of the growth that I have seen with this new job is discovering who I am. While many people, my counselor included, don’t put much stock in the Myers-Briggs personality test, I have found that it is rather accurate to me. This time. I have taken it in the past and came up with…

Home School Hesitations

Home school is something I have considered since the moment I found out I was pregnant with BigM. At first HomemadeDady wasn’t agreeable to the idea. He wanted BigM to have all the opportunities that public school offered. With the Autism diagnosis I wanted BigM to be in the public school system while we were…

Becoming Me

To say that these past few months have been rough would be an understatement. The holidays are hard for me. My depression and anxiety skyrocket. This year the seasonal job I had didn’t help matters. Normally it wouldn’t have been bad but the store I was at was in the process of going through some…

Apartment Fire Safety

The apartment complex we now live in is, interesting. Not my first choice of places to be living but we can put up with it for now until things settle down. Being in this complex allows us to keep BigM in one of the best school districts in the state. I can put up with…

Generation Good

**Samples received for free in exchange for an honest review** Recently I have joined the Seventh Generation community called Generation Good. They are a group of like minded individuals, many of them moms, who are advocating for clearer product labels and learning about how to live healthier. So far, I love it. I have received…

The Holly Jolly Christmas YouTube Tag

So this may not be YouTube but I thought it would still be fun to do here! 1. Favorite Christmas Movie? Scrooge with Albert Finney. Yes it has to be that specific one I have grown up watching it every Christmas Eve and continue to do so as an adult. 2. Are you on the Naughty…

BabyM: Tongue-Tie Clipping

My poor baby girl. She has been through a bit in her short little life. Not as much as other babies thankfully but still too much.  One stop on the journey to solving her slow weight gain was getting her evaluated for a tongue-tie. I spoke extensively with a lactation consultant who then referred me…

Mom-Day: Long Term Breastfeeding

We have another Mom-Day interview for you! A wonderful mommy from a Facebook group I am a part of volunteered to answer some questions about breastfeeding past the age of 1 year. She has some wonderful words of advice towards the end so be sure to read to end. If there is a specific topic…
