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

What To Expect When Your Child Enters Daycare For The First Time

Mother Knows Best?

  Growing up, I always heard: "Mother knows best!" "Just wait until you get older." "You're going to turn out just like me." I was 100% certain that I was never going to turn out like my mom.  You see, when I was a teenager I thought, like most teenagers, my mom was strict, mean, and… Continue reading Mother Knows Best?

Horrors of Potty Training

Do not read if you are the faint of heart.  I remember living life in bliss, BPT (before potty training) when I didn't think about potty training.  It wasn't that I never knew that I'd have to potty train my child, it's just that it never occurred to me that it'd be a full-blown thing.… Continue reading Horrors of Potty Training
