3 Sleep Sacks and Where to Get Them

Sleep sacks are the best invention ever. These wearable blankets eliminate the need for blankets in the crib or bed and allow your wee ones to still sleep cozy. There are a multitude of options available including swaddle sacks and sleep sacks meant to help transition out of the swaddle. I own about a billion […]

Green Smoothie Recipes

The year that I turned 30, I had my third child. He was my second nine pounder. I was battling prenatal depression and I was HUGE! I had very low expectations for loosing my baby weight once he was born. I figured age, and the busyness of having 3 kids weren’t in my favor. So […]

Honeybees: Simple Kids Snack Recipe

Most days, it’s a miracle when I offer my kids a snack that they are actually excited about.  In fact, most days when I give them their snack options I put up my invisible shield in preparation for the slew of whining and complaining that is sure to follow. “NO!  I don’t want that!” “I […]

Kids Eat Free in Albuquerque

Check out these places where kids eat free (or almost free) in and around Albuquerque. It’s always nice to take a break from cooking and take your kids out to eat. But I like to know where I can go without breaking the bank. We all know that some most kids eat like birds, so who […]

Build A Mini Minecraft Forest – Family Fun Project

Behold the Mini Minecraft Forest! Spring still hasn’t officially sprung in New Mexico this year…it’s May and it’s still cold sometimes, and windy. I enjoy gardening, but my peach tree already froze once this year, so I don’t care to risk my plants going outside for a while. When gardening time comes, I’ll refer to Amanda’s […]

Mom, An Ode to All Types of Motherhood

It’s 7:00pm, you are exhausted, the house is a mess, and wild hour just started for your kids. As you watch them run around the house for the tenth time giggling and taunting each other, you can either start rounding them up for bed or you can join in on the fun. Neither choice is […]

How to Set a Summer Schedule

If you are anything like me and have had one or more of your kids in school over the past year, you may be asking yourself, “What in the world did I ever do BEFORE they were in school?” The answer to that my dear friends is, “I have no freaking clue”. Seriously, it’s like […]

Baby wearing: why I love it

I have a friend expecting her first baby later this year.  Both of us tend towards minimalism and it’s been fun thinking about what baby products are “must haves”, “nice to haves”, and what are “not needed”.  One item I  solidly put in the “must haves” category is a good, ergonomic baby carrier. The sport […]

Mother's Day for the broken and weary mom

Mother’s Day for the Broken and Weary Mom

Motherhood is not an easy undertaking.  Long days can turn into long nights.  The to-do list never seems to get done.  Many times there are no thank-you’s for the things we do.  Mommy wars, internet trolls, and even our own voice can condemn us for not being enough or too much (fill in the blank).

Parenting Parents: The life of many children

I cant help but have tears in my eyes as I write this. Today I am not talking about me parenting my kids. Today I am talking about me parenting a parent. My mom. It’s not like one would think,  when they are in their late 80’s early 90’s, and having the normal aging. Or […]

May the Fourth Be With You

May the Fourth Be With You. “Say what” you ask? Well I’m happy to tell you! Growing up I was exposed to all kinds of greatness. Lord of the Rings was part of my bedtime story rotation, Star Wars (episodes 4,5,6) were regularly watched, and Ender’s Game is still one of my favorite books. We […]

I Became My Mother - Albuquerque Moms Blog

It Happened … I Became My Mother

It happened. I became my mother. I dreaded this day would come. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew it would happen. I just didn’t think I would become my mother in so many ways. Good ways. Bad ways. Funny ways. Downright ridiculous ways. Mother’s Day is right around the corner and so readers, […]

Meal Planning for Dummies (Like Me!)

Confession: I have never been much of a cook. I’m not a BAD cook… Cooking just doesn’t excite me. Both of my parents always cooked delicious, healthy, well-rounded meals for my sister and I growing up, but even after the great example they set, the whole meal planning and cooking thing just never really clicked […]
