Hi, guys! It’s finally nap time here, so I just wanted to pop in with a quick recap of our morning. Quinn’s school is closed today (they’re without power), so we had a fun “gym day” together. Early this morning, when I asked him if he was excited for our upcoming adventures, his response was: “Gym days make me crazy, crazy happy!” I mean, is that not the cutest thing ever? 🙂 I love that…

If you’re a parent and have experienced 3.5 years old, you know it’s something else. It’s basically like a roller coaster of highs and lows of (strong) emotions and demands, which can change at the drop of a hat. Even though this age can be semi-frustrating at times, it’s also the sweetest age and my favorite to date. Quinn is such a gentle and imaginative kid, and he surprises me everyday with his kind gestures…

We got quite the snow storm on the South Shore yesterday. It was crazy. The snow and wind gusts came fast and furious! But I was more than happy to have a “snow day” with my family. Actually, one of Quinn’s teachers at school said we should have a “storm party” to celebrate, so we called it that instead. I mean, doesn’t “storm party” sound a lot more fun!? When we woke up on Thursday…

This post is sponsored by Organic Stevia In The Raw® and SheKnows Media. I can’t believe my sweet baby is growing into a little boy so quickly. I’m so glad that I’ve documented so many of our adventures together on CNC to see how he’s changed (so much) over the weeks and months. This “day in the life” recap is from a random Friday a couple of weeks ago, and Qman and I had quite…

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY to you! We had quite the fun day yesterday. It actually ended up being a double celebration since we had my sister’s and mom’s birthday to celebrate! My morning began bright and early at 5:01 AM. I sort of panicked when I woke up because I was in such a deep sleep and had no idea what was happening, but I knew I needed to shut off my alarm immediately, so…

I have partnered with Dannon to help promote Oikos. I have been compensated for my time commitment to review Oikos. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Thank you to Dannon for partnering with me on this blog post. Since Mal is off for the summer and Qman is only in daycare part-time, I’m busting my tail to get all of my work done Monday…

This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own.  Now that summer is here, our family is enjoying a much more low-key lifestyle, but during the school year, weekday mornings start bright and early at 5:00 AM when Mal’s alarm clock goes off. Here’s a snapshot into one of his final days of school! Mal heads downstairs for breakfast while I get a jump start on my work for the…

I have partnered with the National Honey Board to bring you this blog post and the delicious recipes included. All opinions are my own. Good morning! I’m so excited to share this day-in-the-life post because it incorporates three tasty recipes that are all made with honey! I usually think of honey as a sweet treat, more for desserts and baking, but lately, it’s become one of my favorite all-day ingredients to use! Today, I’m walking you…

Good morning! So, I missed our Day in the Life post for last month (oops, again), so I figured I would write next month’s post a little early with another mid-month post to make up for it. I also wanted to make sure that I got in this month’s post because it marks such a significant age for our little guy. Our sweet boy turns 2.9 years old next week, which, in the school/daycare world, is…

Heyyyyy! Umm, hello… where did December go? Holy cow, we were consumed with the holidays this year. So much, in fact, I totally missed Qman’s monthly Day in the Life post. Oops! Well, the little dude is 2 years and 7 months old now and such a boy. He’s still my baby, but now that’s he’s talking a lot more and forming all sorts of interesting ideas (he randomly told me that Murphy likes treats…

Hey, hey! Happy Monday! I can’t believe tomorrow is Election Day. It’s such a BIG day, so make sure you get out there and VOTE! Ok, it’s time for another Day in the Life post. Our sweet boy turns 2 years and 5 months (aka “almost 2.5 years old”) this week, so I thought it was the perfect time to share a look into our life at this age. Our baby is growing up so fast. He’s talking…

Good morning! It’s time for another Day in the Life post! Qman turns 2 years and 4 months later this week, so I thought it was the perfect time to share a look into life at this age, which, I have to admit, is a very fun age. I love that he’s finally talking. He already says the funniest things! Ok, here we go! 6:03 AM: I wake up and immediately look at the time on…

Alternate title: The Time I Drank Three Iced Coffees Before 9 AM A certain little someone turns 26 months 2 years and 2 months old today! I can’t believe how quickly the months are flying by now. In fact, they’re moving so fast, I missed last month’s Day in the Life post. Boo. Mom fail. And I almost missed this month’s post too, but I ended up documenting last Saturday morning, so it’s a little snippet into our life…

A certain little someone turns 2 years old today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, QUINN!!!), so I thought it was the perfect time to write another Day in the Life post. Although, the day that I picked to blog about (Monday) actually ended up being kind of downer. Quinn and I are feeling better today, and I figured you guys would want to see the good, the bad, and the ugly of our day, so I decided to blog about it anyway. Hey,…

Good morning, friends! Holy moly, the past month flew by. I feel like I was just writing Quinn’s 22-month Day in the Life post. What a whirlwind month that was. Whoa. Anyway, our little dude turned 23-months (aka “almost two”) yesterday, so here’s a recap of last Friday as a way to remember this time in Q-Man’s life. 6:11 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor. I’m barely awake, but I really need to pee,…
