Motherhood Musings :: My Little Peanut

I came across this picture on Pinterest and thought to share it with you. You can also find the print off from Etsy.

My heart has never been so full with love and it just keeps overflowing.

Motherhood Musings :: Random

Who knew that a roll of red raffia ribbon (say that 10x fast?) could hold an endless amount of entertainment for a toddler?

Page 98 of 365 :: Being a SAHM is expensive

Recently, this article Father's Can't Afford Stay At Home Mom has made its rounds through the web. I've read it awhile back when it first came up on my feed and thought that it was a great article filled with truths about what it means to be a SAHM. I've since shared the article with the hubby and it is true, being a SAHM is expensive.

An excerpt from the article written by Steven Nelms, "I cannot afford my wife to a be a Stay-At-Home Mom. And that's just the beginning of it."

He breaks down the many jobs that a SAHM does and what the average salary one gets for that position. Some include chef, who makes about $12,480 a year and a cleaning service, which can total to $5200 a year. With all the many jobs a SAHM juggles at home, being paid to be a SAHM can cost up to on average 75K.

What do you think of the article?

Until, next time!

Motherhood Musings :: School

This morning, the hubby and I were talking about how one of his co-workers is starting school soon. And, it hit me as I looked at our little peanut, that in a few short years, she will be starting school as well. Being almost 35 weeks pregnant and hormones all over the place, it was pretty easy to start crying.

When did your little ones start preschool? Or did you wait until they were about to start kindergarten to have them enrolled in school?

Until, next time!

Style Corner :: Neutral Sandals

I was in the market for some casual, low-heeled sandals, that can be dressed up and down, and I came across these from Zara {see below}. I mentioned before in this previous post that I didn't know how comfortable the Zara shoes are for women, since my only experience with them has been getting them for my little one.

Zara - Sandals
I've worn them out all day while attending a cousin's wedding and running around after my toddler and all I can say is that they were very comfortable. I can see myself wearing these sandals out a lot. Another thing to point out, they are also very comfortable walking around in, being almost eight months pregnant. If you are in the market for sandals similar to these, feel free to check them out at your local Zara store or onlineZara does offer free shipping when you purchase $50 or more.

Until, next time.

Style Corner :: Nursing Friendly Clothes

With a new baby on the way, I've been looking into getting new tops/clothes that do double-duty. Something that I can wear and be comfortable and something that I can easily nurse in. It's always good to look into tops that pull double-duty, so you can get more bang for your buck. It is much easier buying tops that are already nursing friendly than look for tops or dresses that you think can be nursing friendly.

I've lived in the following tops (styles shown for the current season) for the 20 months that I've nursed the little peanut. These tops have been through a lot and are needing replacement.

Until, next time!
