Posted by Becca on 9/30/2013 to Mom Madness
present-free birthday,party idea,minimalistWe live in a very rich, very materialistic society. Even our poor here in the US usually have it much better than those in poverty in the rest of the world. We are blessed, and rich beyond our understanding, and most of us don't even see it. I don't consider myself rich at all. Some months we're living paycheck to paycheck and just trusting...(Read more...)

Posted by Bert on 9/26/2013 to Family Fitness
7 minute workout,fitness,exercisesWhat would you do if I told you that you could workout for seven minutes and it would be as good as getting in a 30 minute workout? Think I'm crazy? Is it too good to be true? Yeah, I thought the same thing when I heard about this so called seven minute is all that it takes workout. Science, however, begs to differ. (Read more...)

Mom to Mom Monday: Natural Remedies

Posted by Becca on 9/23/2013 to Green Living
baby chiropractics,chiropractorI don’t consider myself a medical expert by any means, but the way this country over medicates is concerning to me. It didn’t seem weird at all until I lived in Spain for a semester. When I got sick and visited the doctors there, they didn’t give me the medicine I am accustomed to right away. Whatever they gave me was weaker. (Read more...)

Mom to Mom Monday: How much computer time is too much?

Posted by Julie on 9/16/2013 to Mom Madness
minecraft,kids,computer timeOur family loves technology and each year we seem to acquire more and more of it. Gone are the days of having to go and rent a VCR at the video store. Now my kids barely know what a VCR is.

I'm confronted with my own and my kids dependence on technology daily and as they get older we're beginning to struggle with finding a balance. Computer time, gaming time, tablet time, smartphone time...When they aren't on one they're trying to use another.

Must Have's for getting started with cloth diapers

Posted by Bert on 9/12/2013 to Cloth Diaper How-To
cloth diapers,book,getting startedRecently I've had a few expectant moms ask me what I would suggest when it comes to cloth diapering. Since I've only cloth diapered two babies I can tell you that I'm definitely not an expert when it comes to experience, I am, however, very well researched since I write about it frequently. Without further ado, I give to you my cloth diaper must haves before the baby comes:

Cloth Diaper Tip: How to uncomplicate cloth diaper use!

Posted by Becca on 9/10/2013 to Cloth Diaper How-To
cloth diapersIs it me, or is there a baby boom going on this year? I think I know about 20 people who were pregnant at the same time as I was and many of them are first time moms. I'm not really a closet cloth diaperer so I got lots of different Facebook messages asking me all sorts of questions. I've been familiar with cloth diapers for a long time and through a couple of years of research and experience I've learned terms such as “cross-over snaps,” “gussets,” and “soakers.” To someone just starting out however, this might as well be Greek. There are a LOT of options to choose from and it can be completely overwhelming.

Mom to Mom Monday: Comparing your kids

Posted by Becca on 9/9/2013 to Mom Madness
comparing kids,motherhoodFrom the moment Baby Bear was conceived I couldn't help but to compare him to Bunny. I compared their pregnancies, their deliveries, their birth weights, and their appearances. When Bear started crying I compared their cries, and shortly thereafter, their temperaments. In the past seven weeks since I've known Baby Bear--well, known him outside of the womb--I haven't been able to help myself but to continue comparing them--their sleep habits, their eating habits, even their snuggling preferences.

A Doctor's take on Infant Digestion, Food Allergies, Intolerances and Elimination Diet

Posted by Julie on 9/7/2013 to Mom Madness
infant digestionParents these days are dealing with some serious diaper issues; constipation, foul smelling, irregular bowel movements you name it. This month I want to help explain why your little one can’t digest food like you right away. Our digestive system is a series of tubes, liquids, and scrubbers; to break it down simply. It all begins in our mouth with saliva and enzymes that begin to break down our food.
