Letter To The Mom Who Does It All

Dear Mom That Does It All,

I know right now you’re thinking, “that’s not me” but it is. It’s you. I know that as the days go by and your to-do list never gets any shorter you may not think you’re truly accomplishing it all. But you are. I know that as you sit down at the end of the night after (finally!) getting the kids to bed and debating on whether to do the dishes or take a shower (or throw out all those ideas and get a few hours of rest) that you don’t feel like a supermom. But you are.


For The Love Of Babies

As I’m sure any mom can agree, we worry about our kids. We worry about if we are teaching them enough, if they are eating the best foods, if they are growing fast enough, and if we are surrounding them with only healthy, positive, and beneficial products and experiences. Sometimes in this world, however, it’s so hard to tell what’s good for them & often times we only realize something was wrong when it brings harm.


Landon’s Birth Story

Mr. Landon Fisher Panganiban joined us on March 13th at 12:17 am and it wasn’t without it’s eventful details. I have gotten a lot of questions about his birth, so I’ll give a run down for you here… Don’t worry, I’m sparing you the TMI details 😉 After getting to 41 weeks and 1 day pregnant (yes, you read that right) I was sick and tired of being pregnant in the most literal sense of the saying. HA! We got scheduled to be induced and off to the hospital we went bright and early.


My #MothersPromise

Since the moment I found out I was gonna be a momma, I knew that I wanted to be there for my kids. I made a promise that very night that the test said positive that I would do my best to be present and active in my kid’s lives. As a preschool teacher at the time, I had experiences with lots of different kinds of parents. It was easy at that time to nitpick their flaws and applaud their successes from the outside, but little did I know how hard (and extremely rewarding!) parenting could really be.


How To Make Nursing Easier

I am certainly no expert on the topic, but after having my son, I realized that I needed to find any & every way to make this new nursing-thing work for us & be as easy and painless as possible! To my surprise, something so natural didn’t come quite so naturally. Can anyone else agree? Today, I am going to share some ways that I made the process as smooth as possible & am adding in some new things I’ll be trying out when my second son makes his appearance in early March!


Animal Kingdom For Babies & Toddlers

Deciding when to bring your kids to Disney World & figure out just which park will be a good fit for their age group can be a tricky task. It’s absolutely no surprise that we love Disney around here and that we have no fear when it comes to bringing our little people along with us. If you are new to my blog, you will have to take me at my word, but if you know us. Well, then you know. The obsession is real. We had a blast spending the day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this February and I wanted to share it with you as well as some tips to doing the park with littles and the best rides and attractions to take them on!
