This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. My family recently went on a Liberty of the Seas cruise and we loved it. We had such an amazing time that we went ahead and planned our next cruise. Since this was our first cruise before we packed, we did a lot of research.

Sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. As a mom with 6 kids, I hold Father's Day near and dear to my heart.

What to Expect After a Cesarean Section

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. I have 3 girls and each pregnancy resulted in a cesarean section. Out of the 3 births, 1 of the cesarean sections was not expected but the other 2 were planned and each one was just as painful as the one before. Sadly, when you have an unexpected cesarean section or even a planned c-section often times it is rare that you are told exactly what to expect after a cesarean section. If you have had a cesarean section, you know that they are not fun and can be very painful. When I underwent my first c-section, the only thing that I knew was that I would be awake while my doctor was cutting me open. If that was not terrifying enough, what came after the c-section was … [Read more...]

How Electronics Have Ruined Our Children and How to Fix It

This post contains affiliate links. See full disclosure here. I was never that mom that would give her toddler my phone to entertain them at a restaurant, while shopping, or whenever I needed them to stop crying, but I have to admit I am that mom that introduced my girls to different kid websites or fun YouTube videos in an effort to help them begin to understand and be able to maneuver a laptop. I thought that this was a great way to help my kids grow and I was right. They have learned a lot but on the down side, my girls are now obsessed and they never want to get off of the computer. I have 3 girls ages 12, 10, and 5. They each have their favorite websites and I encourage educational websites or learning videos but to see them always on … [Read more...]
