MommylandI'm a mom, a wife and I cook for a living. I'm 26 years old and just found out I'm expecting our second baby. I love to be at home hanging out with my family and getting crafty whenever I can fine the time.

Get started in cloth for ultra cheap!

Cloth diapering is usually pretty cost effective in the long run (unless you get sucked by the cuteness and buy WAY more than you need!), but the start up costs can be a tough hurdle.  You can buy a pack of disposable diapers for $10 and diaper your baby for a few days.  $10 doesn’t…

You gotta try this!

Dig out your waffle iron.  You know, the one you got for a wedding present that you used twice before it moved to the back of the biggest, darkest cupboard in your kitchen.  Dust it off, plug it in, and call the kids into the kitchen.  They’ll want to help with this one. Prepare a…

More than a playgroup, but not quite a preschool…

I want to be hands on with Junior’s education.  I want to be a part of the foundation of his learning.  It’s incredibly important to me to help shape and understand how he learns.  I’m not sure I’m cut out to be a full on homeschooler, but I think for the preschool years, I’m going…

Bad Mommy Day

I’m having one heck of a bad mommy day.  I kinda want to cry at this point.  Deuce has been crying all morning pretty much.  My only successful attempts at getting him to stop have been feeding or the walk/bounce routine.  Neither of which can be done all the time. Since he’s been on Zantac,…

Reflux sucks!

It took until Deuce was 9 weeks old to realize that all of his crying wasn’t just some evil plan to drive me crazy.  Poor kid was in pain.  It took me a while to piece together when he was crying compared to eating, spitting up, etc.  It honestly makes me feel horrible.  There were…

Taco Pie

Once again, dinner was rushed for two reasons, Deuce wasn’t interested in letting me cook and I hadn’t been interested in going to the store this morning.  I had to make due quickly with what was in the house, and that wasn’t much.  I invented Taco Pie.  Well, let’s be honest, someone, somewhere has probably…

Kid speak

Every once in a while Junior says the best things.  Totally random and absolutely priceless.  One day a few weeks ago, I was a little stressed out, and apparently, he could tell.  He walked up, gave me a huge hug and said: Hugs make your arms feel better! Man, I love him!  He’s such a…

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

After Deuce was born lots of our amazing friends brought us dinners.  I got hooked on this and made my own version. 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast 2 cups water 2 tsp chicken base (I’ve blogged about my love for Better Than Bullion in the past).  If you don’t have this, omit the water…

Some of my greatest friends I’ve never met

This sounds cheesy and rightfully so.  I have some great friends that I only know through the internet.  I’ve never heard their voices, never shaken their hands, never stood beside them, and honestly will likely never meet.  When I got pregnant with Junior, very few of my friends had kids, my parents weren’t super supportive,…

nothing says multitasking like being a mom

There are days I’m not sure if I want a second set of hands or a padded room.  Sometimes I realize that maybe I’m trying to do a few too many things at once.  A prime example happened when Deuce was about a week old.  I didn’t even realize exactly what I was doing in…
