Gerber Lil’ Beanies is Getting them to Eat

June 21, 2016 By · 1 Comment

With five kids I tend to either stay away from products of had bad experiences with throughout raising children or I lean towards completely trusting brands and being loyal to them. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that since my oldest (now 19) was born I’ve trusted Gerber products that goes from baby food, snacks, juices, etc. I’ve watched the company expand the items it produces and have normally had a child in that age group when they launch something new. Nicoli has always loved the Gerber snacks, so when they came out with the Gerber “Lil Beanies” I had to try them.

Lil’ Beanies are geared towards toddlers and currently come in two flavors: Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) is a nutritious snack that has 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value) and 1 gram of fiber per serving. Lil’ Beanies(TM) is the perfect snack to delight both you and your toddler. They are the very first snack made with beans in the Kroger baby food aisle. I love our Kroger because it has everything easy to find, baby food is on one side of the aisle and diapers, wipes and butt cream are on the other. Gerber Lil’ Beanies are found on the top shelf and are just below $2. I won’t lie, we have movie night and eat chips, I hate giving Nicoli chips so these will now be HIS when it comes to movie night. Course I think he’ll eat them any other time, which is funny since he is such a picky eater. This is totally a Gerber Win Win. [Read more…]

Wordless Wednesday: Finding Happiness

March 4, 2015 By · 1 Comment

Finding happiness is something so many of us struggle with. Am I right? No matter if we are experiencing complete happiness or sadness, we will always find bad. Sometimes we will doubt that the good will stay good for long. Today, I wanted to take a moment to post just a few moments from this past week. siblingslove
When you watch your children you can see where the moments of happiness truly are and just how easy it is for kids to find it. So why is it so many adults can’t find it?  It is because of things that have happened in their own life. They just can’t trust it. Sometimes they think they don’t deserve it, etc.  In the picture above Nicoli had found happiness with a pen and paper, something I have always loved to do. He enjoyed sitting there for over thirty minutes happily drawing and writing pictures in his little notepad and showing it to us. I love how much a child gets pleasure out of their own creations. Something for the past year I have struggled with doing. Sure I always want to write, but never know what to write or what I should or should not write. Have you been there? [Read more…]

Wordless Wednesday: Sibling Love

November 5, 2014 By · 14 Comments

Happy Wordless Wednesday! Here are my youngest daughter and youngest son together. I caught her chasing him around outside one day. Each child loves one another very deeply and you can see the love between BabyGirl and Nicoli. I really hope this love stays like this throughout their childhood and adult lives.Fotor1105122343 As you can see he is getting sturdier on his feet and loves running. Course if you put him down outside he will try to run. Which could mean you may have to enlist the others to help catch him. He found a pole outside and thought he found the perfect hiding place. Yes, he really thought she couldn’t see him behind the pole. It really was cute. Can you see the love these two share?

Wordless Wednesday: My Homecoming Kids

October 29, 2014 By · 12 Comments

It’s Wordless Wednesday but this will have a bit of text. Last week was a super fun week, the older kids had spirit week which meant every day they were dressing up in some way. This was an exciting week but somewhat sad too, for me it meant getting my oldest daughter ready for Homecoming. This was so much fun, we did makeup, hair, finding her stuff for her dress. Believe it or not she had a collection of jewelry to pick from but she picked my birthday gift to her, a simple (mini) Origami Owl locket. I think it was actually perfect. Fotor01029113637

Here they are, before you ask, my son ALWAYS wears a beanie on his head. So to make him take it off would mean to be fake. I love real photos of family so this is perfect. I love that the two of them can play like this. They had the most amazing time and I was so happy to see them come back to the car once it was done with smiles plastered to their faces and no tears. Come on, how many dances did you attend in high school where someone was scene crying?  Thankfully I had happy memories of my own homecoming and my kids ended on the same note…of course I don’t think they got to walk through the drive thru over at Taco Bell after the dance like I did. As for my oldest, this was his last Homecoming but sounds like he enjoyed it. As for BalletGirl, she has at least 3 more to go to and many other dances. She came back with an Eiffel Tower Statue that she took from one of the tables, something her momma would’ve done. haha.  Did you keep trinkets from your dances?

Most Embarrassing Moment as a Mom

October 29, 2014 By · 8 Comments

As a mom to five I’m sure there were tons of times when I had an embarrassing mom moment. I mean how many moms out there have had their child do one thing or another to embarrass them? Now I could lie to you all and say I’ve had this perfect life and never had a moment like this but we all know the truth. I’m the mom that just can’t seem to think of a ton at the moment so I’ll go over a brief few, I’m sure I’ve mentioned them here or on Facebook (The Life of a Home Mom) from one time or another. I do want to say sometimes embarrassing moments can be the silly ones and I hope my kids always find the silly in those situations.

Back in 2002 I would have more embarrassing mom moments, or somewhere around there my oldest was attending preschool and his teacher had recently told the students if they ever got into trouble to call 9-1-1. She apparently didn’t explain she meant trouble like a house fire, or a burglar because later that week I grounded him to his room for something…probably throwing a fit or a toy. I went outside to check the mail, this is like 15 steps walking, when I came in I told him to come down. He loved on me, told me sorry and all that so we went out back to play in the water. It was a hot year so we already had the sprinklers out, we’d been outside for about 30-45 minutes when I declared it was time to go back inside, cool down and get some water. Just as we were heading in the fire/police department swarmed around the back freaking me out. They explained someone had just called 9-1-1 from inside. After they did a complete search and finally left he came clean and told me he did it. He didn’t let on the entire time. So may not be too embarrassing but it is when you are in bathing suits and have law enforcement at your home.
