How do you celebrate your child’s birthday? Today, one of my four turned 4. My youngest. As much as it’s a time to celebrate the birth, it’s a time for self-reflection. As a mother – but also as a person. With each birth, I experienced transformation. Sometimes awesome – always unexpected. What about you? How do YOU feel on your child’s birthday, aside from the … Continue reading Happy birthday!
Games for toddlers aren’t always easy to find. I made a list of online games more than 13 years ago. For a long time I just added to the list I already had but then I started to review some as they came along. Do you have a preference for a review or just a simple link? Do you have a favorite game you’d like … Continue reading Games For Toddlers [List]
Seriously. I have four children. Way back, 16 years ago, I knew I didn’t know what I was doing. I flapped around, trying to fly but totally preoccupied with feeling everyone else had a grasp on motherhood and they could see I didn’t. You know what? After all that agonizing, I knew what I was doing after all! I’m pretty sure you do too. I’m … Continue reading Mommy Bootcamp
Do your kids like videos? Videos Toddlers like aren’t always top of my own viewing list but… Recently my two sons, 3 and 7 years old, developed a liking for YouTube videos instead of games on the iPad.

My 3 year old son likes monster trucks videos and these (weird?) videos where toys are wrapped in … Continue reading Videos Toddler and Preschoolers Like | MostlyMommies
I don’t know if other moms are in the same boat but these days leading up to “the big day” are as much about entertaining the kids (ie. keeping them busy while you cook and wrap and all the other stuff you and I need to get done!) as Entertaining, with a capital “E”. I am creating a list of crafts with things you have … Continue reading Decorations You Can Make With Kids [Tutorial]
Oh you know, you wake up thinking “ah, I’ll get the kids to school and tidy up a bit while I look for recipes” when your phone rings. Or, in my case, you get a text. (You DO know I don’t answer phone calls, right?) All heck breaks loose. The in-laws, your own family, or some crazy kidless friend who drops in has just told … Continue reading What To Do When You Have Company Coming FAST!

This post Homemade Vapor Rub Shower Cubes has … Continue reading Homemade Decongestant Cubes [Tutorial]
I know, Halloween has come and gone for 2015. Colour me relieved! This year my lovely 15 year-old who loves history decided she would be Amelia Aerhart for Halloween. Enter the need for an aviator cap. And goggles. She came home with ideas though and that’s more than half the battle. Here is the best, hands down, tutorial on making an aviator hat from craft … Continue reading Make An Aviator Hat At Home | Tutorial
How To Entertain Your Toddler Take two chickens and a bug on a window and add one active toddler with a great vocabulary and you have this video! 🙂 I created this of our chickens pecking on the deck doors, trying to eat a bug on the inside! You can hear my son squealing “oh my goodness!” all the way through. #adorable
I spend waaayyy more time on Pinterest and Twitter than I do on Facebook. I could just hang out there on Facebook and wait for Dammit Jim, I’m a Mom, not a Doctor to post her crafts with her daughter, AirBear, but she’s a busy lady and I usually head over to Pinterest to be further inspired and to figure out what I can make … Continue reading What social site do you spend the most time on?
