Shows Moms Like You Want to See Make a Comeback

I don't know if I'm stuck in the past, longing for my glory days or if the first New Kids on the Block reunion tour was just that good but I am all about reunions and reboots. I have stayed up until midnight every single time Fuller House has a new season on Netflix and binge watch them til the wee hours. I've also watched Girl Meets World more times than I'm willing to admit and, yes, Will & Grace is on my Hulu List.

Celebrate Love With These Kid-Approved Valentine's Day Traditions

Celebrate Love With These Kid-Approved Valentine's Day Traditions

I've always been a fan of Valentine's Day and not as a romantic holiday. I think it's because my parents always made it a special day for us, they made it about family and showing love to one another.

I appreciated how my parents celebrated Valentine's Day with us and I plan to do the same with my son.

4 Goals That Every Family Needs To Make

4 Goals That Every Family Needs To Make

I am a really big believer in setting goals and it is a habit I plan to teach my son to have. As a toddler, he may be a little young to come up with his own goals, but I still think that setting family goals is important. My family goal for 2017, was for my son and me to do one new thing a week - whether it was at home or going on a new adventure. We had so many great experiences and, as a mom, this goal really challenged me to appreciate where we live and to be a little more crafty. If you haven't set family goals, I encourage you to do so. If you have older kiddos, you can include them in the process! If not, here are some goals that every family can set.

12 Things to do When You're Totally Stressed Out

Stress is not a stranger to most of us but some people handle it better than others. It took me several years to learn how to manage my stress better and, in some ways, I'm still a work in progress (hello, stress eating). For various reasons totally unrelated to parenting a toddler, I have been more than a little stressed out over the past couple of months.
