DIY Felt Christmas Tree Game for My Toddler

I had a Momma Date last night and we had all kinds of fun.  We did some shopping which included a trip to JoAnne Fabrics.  Then we got milkshakes and came back to my house.  I had rented Pitch Perfect 2 from the library so we popped that in since both of us are big fans of the franchise.  Wink Face. About a minute after that, Hobbs left for the midnight release of FallOut 4.  I'll probably write about that in a 7QT post, but the point is that the kids were in bed, husband gone, and my friend … [Read more...]

Real Talk: Baby Cries

I want to talk about baby cries because I feel like I missed a mom chip in my brain in this area.  One thing I know is that I can distinguish my kids cries from other kids'.  However, I don't have that mom gene that tells me why my kids are crying.  I never know.  I can usually tell how urgent the situation is for my baby, but people ask, "what kind of cry is it?" and I mostly have no idea besides decibel level.  Are you hungry?  Poopy?  In pain?  Sleepy?  Scared?  Please!  Use your words!!  Oh … [Read more...]

7QT: Halloween Pics, Big Boy Bed & More

- 1 - #Updates - Halloween was wonderful! - The night started out with crappy weather, but by the end it was gorgeous! - At first, DST was terrible and in one sense, it's still terrible.
