Raising Children Without An Air Conditioner in the Summer

Given my husband Jacob was associated with a company that manufactured biodegradable vegetable based clean-up merchandise, therefore, he was dead against the use of air conditioners in our home at Phoenix Arizona.

Whenever my four kids Joshua, Mathew, Andrew and Emma demanded an AC be installed in their respective rooms, their dad Jacob would declare, “Though an air conditioner performs a very important task in the contemporary world; however, it has an incalculable off-putting effect on our planet. It creates an unnecessary gas known a chlorofluorocarbon, which in turn generates a perforation in the ozone sheet. Thus it is the main intimidation to the atmosphere. The perforation produced due to this gas is perilous and permits unstrained ultraviolet rays which are very detrimental to the human race as well as to all sorts of living organisms.”

Mommy Alliance

What more could you ask as a mother, than having some sort of alliance of other like-minded mothers looking for better ways and methods to being a great parent. People that like to read books join book clubs, people that love working out join gyms, and mothers that love their children and desire a network to socialize with should form some sort of mommy club. Creating a blog about mommy experiences is kind of like joining a mommy club, but it’s online instead of having a physical location to meet up. Having a place for all the mommy’s to meet up and socialize at is important. A lot of times, I sometimes feel lonely being a mother of so many kids. Having a support system of other moms to get together and talk about parenting would make life a little less stressful.

Around the Clock Momma

Once I became a mom I promptly became conscious that kids can be rowdy, and boys are more often than not more energetic, sizable, and violent in comparison to girls. While there are forever exceptions to the rule, usually rearing boys can be difficult. Having completed my Bachelors in Human psychology, I tied a knot with a man who worked at a junk food restaurant only to make a pay check although he was not at all fascinated with food. As a consequence, my man used to be so tired that he was forced to perform speedy and careless sex without providing me the emotions and fulfillment of stretched out coitus.

To cut the long story short, I was blessed with five kids i.e. three girls and two twin boys and the current scenario is such that the eldest two are girls eleven and nine years of age respectively; next in line are the twin boys eight years old. The youngest is a three year old girl. Continue reading “Around the Clock Momma”

A Day in the Life

As a little girl, I always loved to line up my dolls at the foot of my bed and pretend like they were my children.  I looked forward to the time when I would truly be a “grown up” and have real-life children to take care of.  Through the passing of time, I continued to long for the day when I’d be a mommy to a houseful of children who would be all be on the honor roll, fluently speak five different languages, eat only healthy foods, and play every instrument in the band.

Fast forward a few years and here I am.  I’ve got the houseful of kids, but it’s certainly not what I’d planned!  In this blog post, I’m going to let you take a peek into my life as the stay-at-home mom of five young’uns.  Continue reading “A Day in the Life”

Why to Schedule Play Dates with Clean Mates

When it comes to setting up play dates for your children be sure to be cautious of dirty kids. I know it may sound rude or offensive to talk about other children’s household situations, but as a proud mother I learned the hard way. There was one particular instance I will never forget.

hoarded house hold children

My son had a play date with one of his school friends, and it ended up being a bad idea dropping him off at the boy’s house. No hard feelings to my son’s friend, but the parents weren’t very clean and sanitary. The house was hoarded with messes everywhere. The smell was musty, and there were clear obvious signs of bed bug and flea infestations. A small tip to remember, never put up with other people’s household issues or you might have to hire a pest control company to come out and exterminate pests brought in externally.

Find Your Peace of Mind as a Parent

Everyone can appreciate the virtues of being a parent. The joy and the sense of fulfillment your children can give you day after day is unimaginable. But make no mistake, it is a tolling process and one of the first things you lose after becoming a parent is your peace of mind.

Children demand your attention every moment of the day when you’re at home, and before you know it you’ll consider yourself lucky when you have to stay an extra hour at work. There’s no need to feel guilty, everyone felt it, although few admit it.

Whether you have a crying baby or an over chatty toddler your mind will struggle to find a quiet moment to organize your thoughts. Then when the little adorable devils go to sleep or are off to the grandparents you’re often tempted to immediately burden your brain with another input to process, whether that comes through your smartphone or a computer screen, but doing that you’re not giving your mind a chance to calm down.

Children at Major Events, Think Twice

Children can be adorable, and they can also seem part tazmanian devil. With a big family like mine (5 kids all younger than 14), I usually will think long and hard before I decide to bring all my children to important events. While I love them all dearly, sometimes, they can be completely unpredictable and can be a nuisance to those around me. This was the case this last Saturday at my best girl’s wedding.

I was given the blessed opportunity to be a bridesmaid by a friend of mine for her wedding. This was one of those times where I wish I had hired a force of nannies to take care of my children. The bride just sent me a quite embarrassing picture the wedding photographer took of my youngest girl who escaped the clutches of my husband and wanted to say hi to mommy during the ceremony.  Continue reading “Children at Major Events, Think Twice”

How To Find Free Time As A Busy Parent

Nature has a way into everything and she sure has her way about helping new parents adjust. When you bring your newborn child home it sleeps almost the whole time, and that means that the changes in your way of life are not drastic and you still have some time for yourself.

As time goes by, your baby begins to sleep less and less and your free time gets less and less until it feels like you hardly have any at all.

attachment parentingWhen it comes to having free time, your children’s sleep routines are essential. I feel really sorry for these parents that have to wait until one in the morning for their children to go to sleep. Or those whose children wake up in the middle of the night hungry for milk.
