Breastfeeding a Toddler: Why I Continue Past the 12 Month Mark

Paul and me at 1 year and 3 months.
Here I am again.  My fourth earthly baby has reached the one year mark.  It has come so quickly that it feels like he was born a mere blink ago!  Celebrating the completion of the first year of his life comes with many exciting milestones from learning to walk, and increase in communication skills, and for many babies, weaning.

Simplifying Life: Is It Always a Good Thing?


To answer the question, no, not always.  I started this blog five years ago and so much has changed in that time.  In many respects, I feel like I am a very different person.  When I started writing on this specific blog, I wanted to share a lot of "life hacks."  Things that are easy, quick, simple, and require little effort.  All of that is fine, except that I've found--at least in my own life-- that quick and easy answers are not always the best answers.

How to Wash Bed Pillows in the Washing Machine


Laundering bedding is one of my least favorite chores.  Being a family of six, we have quite a bit of bedding and adding this into my daily laundry creates a mountain of blankets once a week.  What a lot of people do not realize is that it is not only the bedding that need to be washed, but pillows really need to be cleaned as well!  I know, who wants more laundry?! I think most of us would answer, "Not me," but if this is not already a part of your routine, it should be and it's so very worth the end result.

Why is My House Always Getting Messy? 31 Days to Clean - Day 7


So I'm getting back to my book 31 Days to Clean by Sarah May and I'm currently on day seven.  Day seven's reading is basically about the curse. 
As Sarah states it, the curse is not that we would have to work (there was work before the curse and we will again have work after the restoration of all things) but rather that we have unproductive and tedious work.

No Matter how many times I clean and have the kids clean up after themselves, I always seem to find a mess.
