Breastfeeding Struggles

Breastfeeding Struggles and Advice After Two Failed Attempts

When I had my first baby, I was so excited about being able to breastfeed her. I was asked by nurses and doctors all throughout the pregnancy if I was planning on breastfeeding and I always answered yes. Little did I know that I didn’t know anything about breastfeeding.

Expecting Third Baby | Don’t Listen to the Critics and Enjoy the Moment

It’s been a busy, busy time around this home! With a full time job, two toddlers, a husband, and a house to run, it’s a lot for a single person to handle. It’s a wonderful thing that my husband can stay at home with the kids; he helps me so much around the house and keeps the kids well fed, well dressed, and entertained. But even so, moms have a lot of things to do as well. Having kids is no easy task, they are a lot of responsibilities (but a lot of joy). And I’m happy to announced that we are adding a third little angel to our family! She’s due December 1st so I’m almost in my third trimester.

A Letter To My Wonderful Husband | A Way to Say Thank You!

Thank you for your dedication to our family and for the way you take care of us every day, without complaining. Thank you for your patience towards me and our little ones. Thank you for listening to me when I’m mad, stressed, happy or sad. I love that about you. Thank you for taking the time to teach our children about right and wrong. And for encouraging me to be the best I can be. You make me a better person, a stronger person, and you’ve taught me how to stand up for myself. Our children love you so much and I do too.

Respectful Children

Raising Respectful Children

If anything, I want you to take away something from this post, and that is: the next time you see a teenager misbehaving, disrespectful, indifferent, annoying, mean, a criminal, and ignorant, make sure that teenager is not yours. Make sure you’ve raised your children better than that. Make sure you’ve raised your children to make you proud, because after all, we’ll be, in part, responsible for their futures, and in turn responsible for the future of an entire country. So let’s make a difference and raise respectful children now. God will help us in our journey.

Good Mom

Am I a Good Mom?

Unlike any other profession/career in life, no one teaches us how to be mothers, or how to be a good one at that. We seem to learn from our own mothers, those lucky enough to grow up with one, but as far as I remember, my mom didn’t give me tips or instruction on how to be a good mother. My mom is great, I love her with all my heart, and I think she did a really good job with my sister and me; we turned out okay. But there are instances where I thought she wasn’t right. There are instances where I was really scared of her and I don’t want my children to feel that way about me, ever.

5 Ways to Save Money

5 Tips to Save Money

As a one-income family, we are always looking for ways to save money; we have a tight budget and it’s nice to have some extra money at the end of the month. Life doesn’t always work out the way we want, and although I have a budget, we can’t always stick to it for one reason or another but we make it work month after month (we try to stay as close to the budget as possible). And thanks to God, we now have enough savings to cover us for a few months if I were to lose my job.

Make your husband happy

10 Tips To Make Your Husband Happy

I do think men need more than respect in their lives, but I think it is a crucial thing for them for a few reasons. One, they can be insecure (although they might not show it) but they do compare themselves to each other, and by showing them respect, people think better of them and that makes them feel better (and you do want people thinking your husband is the best, right?). Two, when you show respect to your husband, he will try his best to treat you right (he will be your knight in shining armor always to the rescue). Three, if you have children, this will impact their lives as well because if you respect your husband, they will see that and they will also respect him (and daddy will be their hero forever).
