The Things They Don't Tell You About Motherhood

What they don't tell you about Motherhood...

They don't tell you that you will feel love in a way that you've never felt before, to the point that it almost hurts at times.

They don't tell you that watching your child struggle at something is one of the most painful feelings in the world.

They don't tell you that watching them gain their independence is one of the most gratifying yet scariest feelings ever.

They don't tell you that when they hurt you feel it in every fiber of your being.

They don't tell you that even as they get older, you'll still check on them in the middle of the night to make sure they are still breathing.

They don't tell you that there will be days that you will feel like the worst parent in the world, that you wonder if you are cut out for this, and  if you'll ever figure out how to do this.

Because the truth is (in my world), there are some days that I wonder if I will ever figure this parenting thing out. As soon as I have it (or think I do) then we hit another stage, another learning curve, and more challenges (most fun, at times not).

They don't tell you that some of the things that will come out of your kid's mouth at the age of 3 will make you laugh so hard you'll pee yourself (cause face it, laughing makes you pee now since everything got stretched. FYI - they don't always tell you about that part either).

They don't tell you that sometimes it feels as if you are looking in a mirror, just a smaller cuter version of yourself. And in that mirror you see the things about yourself that you'd rather not see, and at times you see the things about yourself that you love. And you see your spouse and his traits (some good - some bad).

And they don't tell you that how you handle situations is how your little one might also handle them.

They don't tell you that everything is a learning experience - from brushing teeth, to washing your hands, to playing with toys - everything and I mean everything is somehow related to learning something.

To me, Motherhood is the scariest thing that I've ever done, but it's also been the most challenging, most loving, and most rewarding experience of my life so far.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
