Tips To Declutter Your Children’s Stuff

I have taken on the task of decluttering the daycare room of toys and craft supplies.  Like your children's toys and items, over the years things build up because, well, I really don't like decluttering, especially when it comes to my daughter's stuff.  It takes a long time, it never seems to be clean and clutter-free… Continue reading Tips To Declutter Your Children’s Stuff

My Daughter’s First Boyfriend

My daughter announced to me on Valentine's Day that she has a boyfriend.  I was absolutely shocked because, for one, my daughter is one of the most innocent people I know.  The idea of her having a boyfriend was something I hadn't expected to deal with for a while.  For another thing, my daughter is six.… Continue reading My Daughter’s First Boyfriend

In light of Valentine's Day passing and my three year anniversary with my fiance, I took to some guest writers to write about a time they fell in love.  It could be about anything they wanted - children, significant others, ANYTHING!
