Healthy Snacking With Stonyfield

I’m getting ready for another round of the 21 Day Fix with BeachBody. No, I’m not a BeachBody coach and have no plans of becoming one. I do like their 21 Day Fix program though, I lost 6 pounds back in October during my first round! I learned a lot about healthy eating during that time as well. Snacking has always been a downfall for me though. I get in these moods to just pick and snack on whatever I can get my hands, usually something with a crunch.

The Struggle for Healthy Habits in Preschoolers - My Mama Adventure

Honestly, I consider us pretty lucky in the eating department with our preschooler. Considering his past with a feeding tube, oral aversion, refusal to drink – anything! The fact that we have a 4 year old that is so willing to try new foods and frequently chooses fruits and veggies over bags of chips or sweets, I’m always amazed at how far he’s come.

How Can I Help You Feel Loved?

How Can I Help You Feel Loved

When inspiration strikes, you write. And what better inspiration than love? Especially love for your child. We love our children to our very cores, it’s so deep that it’s never ending. My dad has taught my son that he doesn’t just love M to the moon and back, but he loves him to the Oort cloud and back. That’s our new thing “I love you to the Oort cloud and back.” But how do I know that my children really feel loved? What do I do on a daily basis outside of saying the actual words? I was challenged to ask my son one simple question: How can I help you feel loved? So, I asked.

Homemade Fruit & Yogurt Parfait #StonyfieldBlogger

If you’ve been following my Instagram account, then you may have noticed that we’re trying to get healthier in the House of K home. We’ve really been trying to do more of the whole “clean eating” thing. I’ve found some really yummy treats and I’ve discovered that clean eating doesn’t mean feeling deprived. I will admit though, the holidays does make it hard. I’m a sucker for pumpkin pie and holiday cookies. But even pumpkin pie and cookies can be made using a “clean” recipe, and they’d probably taste even better!

Jump Start Your Business With Shutterfly

If you’re a stay at home mom, or anything like me, then you’ve looked into the possibility of starting your own business or joining a direct sales company as a consultant. Whether it’s to give you something outside of children or a way to bring in some extra income, you may have considered it. I know I have on more than one occasion! I joined one company as a consultant when I was pregnant with M, it flopped. Since his birth I’ve tossed around many different business ideas from an Etsy shop to going into private practice as a mental health therapist. But, in the end, I ended up joining another direct sales company, and this time, I love it!! It’s not to a point where I can quit my job, but it’s a nice extra income to help with bills.

Setting Up A Snack Drawer For Your Preschooler - My Mama Adventure

Not gonna lie, having two kids is way harder than having one kid. Duh! Right? Even before Baby H made her arrival, I started doing things to help M become more independent so that when H was born I wasn’t constantly having to help him. M can fully dress himself from head to toe, he can use the bathroom by himself – though still needs help with hand-washing since he can’t reach the handles to turn the water on/off, and he can get himself a snack.

Oh! Hai There!

Oh! Hai There!

So, it’s been about a month since I’ve written. Things have been really busy with the kids and I’ve really been thinking a lot about where I want to take this blog. I’ve been trying to monetize and make some income off this little space of mine through Google ads, affiliate links, some sponsored posts, reviews, and giveaways. And it has been so much fun! I love offering giveaways and have loved the opportunities to try products and share them with you that I may not have otherwise been able to try.

Losing the New Mom Jiggle {+ The Babywearing Workout Review}

Losing the New Mom Jiggle - My Mama Adventure

Not gonna lie, I kind of want to sit on the moms who seem to just melt away the baby weight after birth. I mean, I know it has a lot to do with genetics, but seriously? It’s just not fair. Most of us struggle to lose the jiggle and for me, it’s more than just a struggle to lose the weight, its a struggle to find time to lose the weight.

I have a 3 year old and a 3 month old. I’m building my Jamberry Nails business, I’m doing the blogging thing, and I’m trying to work my way into a small family photography business. I’m also trying to find an out of the home job. I’m busy. Between laundry, dishes, and WAHM duties (and doody!), I’m pretty much going from sun up to long past sun down. Somewhere in there I’m supposed to find time to shed the pounds and firm up the post c-section tummy? Yea, okay!

Why I Broke Up With Detergents “Safe for Cloth Diapers”

Why I Broke Up With Detergents Safe for Cloth Diapers - My Mama Adventure

This post may get me kicked out of the “crunchy” mom category. Okay, probably not. But seriously, this is may be a very controversial topic in the crunchy realm of things, especially since my choice is not so green. However, it is saving me green and with only one income in our house right now, we really need to watch our pennies. So, while this may not be a popular opinion, it’s how we’re rollin’ these days.
