If you are like me, you dread when the time comes around to cut your kid’s hair. For this reason I am sharing an easy toddler haircut. I dread it so much that my daughter has yet to have a haircut. Deep inside I am actually completely content with her ever growing long locks. My son on the other hand, when his hair grows out… it GROWS and all over the place. He has had two hair cuts in his 19 months of life.
The first was mandatory because the kid was balding as a newborn at the back of his head LOL. The second was at Magic Kingdom because HELLO! How many people can say they’ve had their haircut by Mickey’s finest!
He is handsome regardless what style he is rocking but, I have always enjoyed the idea of having a longer length on him.
The long length we eventually reached didn’t last long. I was done styling a comb over and I really wanted to try my hand at learning to save myself the time and trouble of taking him to the barber.
If you are a mom with a toddler who wakes up more often than you’d like in the middle of the night you are not alone. Lately, Mia has resorted to showing up standing next to my bedside balling in tears. And when I say lately, I mean the past few weeks. I know you are with me when I say “Mama needs her beauty sleep”. Now, do not get me wrong. Mia is a great sleeper but, I am almost positive she is having nightmares and does not know how to tell me. If you remember, a few months back we received the most precious book about helping your toddler getting into a routine for bed time. That was literally a God sent for us!
Happy Monday Mamas!
As we know Easter is right around the corner. I wanted to go ahead and share our picks for this year’s Easter baskets. And perhaps some recommendations if you were trying to stay away from the loads of candy filled eggs that we all grew up with. LOL ( I am trying to get on a little weight loss journey so, I am taking all necessary precautions… Just kidding, give me all the chocolate bunnies!)
We are finally back again and feeling better than EVER. I had a few weeks with a trip to urgent care and just feeling not myself at all.
I am feeling like we are finally getting a hold of things around our hectic household and February is looking oh so promising! Love is still very much in the air over here and lately, I am so proud of both my kids. Being able to watch them grow each day has been such a blessing in my life.
We recently stumbled upon Amara Organic Baby Food. Believe me when I tell you that this has been such a blessing and I already have a pending order thanks to Amazon.
Good evening mamas!
If there is anything I hate more, it is that I started 2017 with a messy, messy house. And messy is the nicest word I could come up with because wreck, hurricane, disaster probably describes it better. In our home we do not have a “living area” per say. We have a kitchen that opens up to what would be our living/family room so we opted for doing a bar counter with bar stools and called it a day. The downside is- my counter ends up being the dumping grounds for literally EVERYTHING. When the kids fight over a toy and I come in the save or in their heads, ruin the day I take it away and it goes right on the counter along with my purse, keys, tupperware, bills and all sorts of random knick knacks.
Let me go ahead and apologize right now for the most cliche post of the year. I know there must be a ton of lists flooding the web with the usual goal setting aspirations. Truth is, I was never one to sit down and contemplate what ‘goals’ I wanted on New Years day. Sure, I set goals year round and most probably don’t get accomplished. But, this year has been so much more awakening for me as a mom, friend, wife and just a person in general. No doubt, being a mother is not always rainbows and unicorns… most times it’s tantrums, colds, staying in your sweat pants 3 days in a row (guilty, don’t judge me).
With that said, this year holds true ” New Year, New Me”. As a mom, I have let life get the best of me and instead of focusing on the now I feel like last year I kept wanting things to happen in the future but, I was not proactive on getting those steps done. If the kids got sick, I just went full force mom mode and neglected everything else that made me happy- including this blog. In reality, this blog is a major part of my sanity. This is a space where I can share my thoughts, my obstacles and meet new moms and know, it’s not just me going crazy.
Hey there mamas!
If you noticed we recently received SUCH a beautiful watch piece from our friends over at Jord Wood Watches. If you haven’t checked them out PLEASE do so (There’s a link below with the watches eligible for the giveaway). As a mom, and a lover of all things fashion I am always on the lookout for seamless pieces that dress up an outfit with little to no effort. I have an array of watches ranging from the ever so popular Michael Kors and to the pricier options like Michelle. BUT, I am about to probably surprise you right now because these pieces, carefully crafted by Jord, are one of kind and made from WOOD… yes, WOOD. I’ve been addicted to the rustic feel lately and these watches are just GORGEOUS. At first glance, I thought to myself if these bad boys are made from wood they may be a bit heavy for everyday use. Why I thought this…. I have no idea. But, I kid you not, this is what had me skeptical. And for NO reason!!
It’s been a crazy month with back to school and we are soaking up every bit of the weekend as possible! As you may have seen, our daughter just started Prek2 and it has been a whirl wind of emotions for us all. Surprisingly, she has adjusted great and there were no tears shed except for my own the first day of school. LOL! But, it has not been all rainbows and cupcakes. My daughter has always been what you call little Miss Independent (takes after her momma… or so I like to say!) When school started we noticed although she does great in class and is excited every morning…. her sleep patterns have been INSANE! And when I say insane I mean random wakings in the middle of the night followed by SCREAMING “MAMIIIII GET ME OUT” AKA… Put me in your bed.
We have been on a major hiatus lately and I am so sorry. I feel like I totally let life get the best of me and fell off the wagon. We’ve had a ton of obstacles and it felt like everything I was trying to set in motion was being neglected and left behind. For a little example, TODAY we finally got the site back and up and running. It seems as though something went wrong with our hosting server and I came to log on to load the page with content and launch our new design and VOILA! my page was EMPTY. Literally, I had a ‘welcome to your new site’ and ‘sample page’ flash across the screen. Needless to say I was in complete PANIC and dismay. After weeks of chat support and endless voice messages I finally got ahold of someone who was able to take the time and help me recover this bad boy.
I just wanted to give y’all a little update where we are at in life and what you can expect from us here at MBGblog! We officially got our oldest into PreK-2 and have settled into a routine where mom can have her much needed alone time and enough time to spare to spend cuddling with my babes.
Thank you for your patience with me and be sure to follow our instagram @MBGblog for exciting news, collaborations and giveaways!
