All Natural Toothbrush

My family has been using these eco-friendly and all natural toothbrushes over the last few weeks.  They are pretty awesome.  Brush Naked believes in Sustainable Living and every toothbrush is made from 100 percent Bamboo.  I have been using these toothbrushes along with my 2 boys (ages 5 and 7).  Kids can be picky about trying new things, but no complaints or resistance here.  Neither […]

Healing an Umbilical Granuloma Naturally

My daughter was born August 13,2014.  I was the happiest Mom on the planet.  The labor was only 3-4 hours and the delivery was nice and easy (a first for me).  All those essential oils and chiropractic care really made a difference this time around!  Now I know what people mean when they say it’s easy to push a baby out.  I did have her […]

I purchased most of these items off amazon.

Essential Oils for end of Pregnancy

I am somewhere between 37 and 38 weeks pregnant.  My doctor has changed my due dates a few times now.  The baby is measuring ahead 1-2 weeks in size, but I know that the estimates aren’t always accurate.  It has been a long summer entertaining the boys and the husband.  We have missed lots of out of town outings and experiences.  I try to get […]

Third Trimester Baby Planning

I can’t believe the third trimester of my pregnancy has arrived. I am now 28 weeks. I remember the beginning of the pregnancy creeping by. I was so sick and tired that some days I felt like I wasn’t going to make it. Somehow we make it through and finally have a little relief. This little bun in my oven is very active and she […]

Handwriting without Tears ages 4-6

My oldest has been in half day kindergarten all year and he is doing well.  I knew from the beginning that I would be supplementing English and Math at home since kindergarten is only part time in the state of Utah .  I have done the majority of my schooling and the boys schooling in Florida up until our move a year ago.  I was […]

Winter is finally over…. well almost.

Winter is almost over here in Utah.  We have moments of spring weather that come and go.  It is very refreshing.  The last 3 months have been difficult.  I was very sick with this pregnancy, and while my natural remedies for morning sickness helped occasionally…. time just needed to pass.  For me it felt like an eternity!  But by 18 weeks I was feeling normal […]
