I love having a large family, but one of my struggles as a mom of 4 kids is making sure everybody gets a turn, or a little one on one time, everyday.  I worry a lot that the kids feel like I’m playing favorites.  I don’t want them to ever feel like I’m spending more […]

Favorite Fall Crock Pot Dinners You Must Try

My kids aren’t too picky, but they of course don’t all like the same food, huff and sigh. This always makes dinner time super stressful for me. I just try and make sure there is something on the menu they will eat, even if it’s not the main dish.  When fall comes around I start […]
