I have formed a bad habit…
You see whenever I complete a task, a chore, or just check something off my to-do list I reward myself. I reward myself with a kiss. Not the quick peck on the check kind but the melt in your mouth, silky goodness, ohhh baby yeah kisses. Yes, I am talking about those sweet, crave able, mass produced kisses from my handsome friend Hersey’s!

I’m always preaching about giving back. It’s something that my parents have distilled in me from a young age. Every week we try to find a way to give back to our community. A small token to make someone else have a better day. A way to bring a smile to someone else’s day!

It’s that time of year, pumpkin spice and everything nice has filled our homes and store fronts! It’s also that wonderful, magical time of year, where we once again can pull out the beloved black yoga pants. Those comfy, soft pants that don’t make us feel guilty for binge eating ice cream after last night’s bed time battle with the kids.
If you can dress up this beloved clothing item to wear them out more in public, other than a trip to Target, even better!

This weekend I did a Target run with my sister in-law. She is expecting her second baby in just a matter of a few weeks. So, we hit up Target for all those last minute post-baby items she will need.
After grabbing a few hospital snacks and diapers, we were standing in front of the nursing bras. I started to laugh because right next to the nursing bras were those big old Grannie Panties! You know the kind. Touché Target! Touché!

To the mom at Target tonight. I could hear that sweet cry of your hungry newborn aisles away. The sound made my uterus skip a beat, that sweet little voice. I thought right away about those snuggly soft baby blankets, the sweet smell of a newborn’s head, the tiny little diapers covering an even smaller tush. As I got closer to the check out, I felt your pain. I remember the feeling of desperation trying to get the groceries loaded and trying to paying before causing a scene. Trying to hush the baby, and dig for a checkbook at the same time. Feeling overly tired, frantic, and overwhelmed by this tiny little life that is disrupting everyone’s shopping experience.

Since having kids, I have stayed up late at night, worrying about all the what-ifs! As I listen to my husband’s breath heavy next to me, my mind runs through the “what ifs” through my head over and over again. It’s now become my way of counting sheep. I know I am not the only mom out there who does this!
So, I have headed to the professionals for their help, easing all those mom brains out there. Continue reading “Unexpected Things Parents Can Do To Protect Their Child: Tips From The Professionals- Part Three” →
As most of you know I have a strong connection to the world of first responders. My sister is a paramedic, my father-in-law is a fire chief, and a long time ago I worked directly with firefighters from all across the state at my “big girl job”. I have heard the horror stories, I have seen the damage to families, and in recent weeks I have watched the tragedy unfold on TV.
So, I have headed to the professionals for their help, easing all those mom brains out there.

It’s late at night, the room is dark. You can’t sleep and your mind begins to wander. You replay the day’s events over and over again in your head. You think about news coverage you watched as you prepared dinner. The horror on those families faces as they begged for help to find their missing child, the smoke billowing from the home where the firefighters pulled out the family pet, the dark red blood that covered the ground after the hit and run. The evening news shares those images with you as you were about to sit down to a family dinner.
You start to wonder, in the comfort of your bedroom, could that happen to us? How am I going to protect my kids in a world of bad things? You start to sweat and your heart starts to race.
