    MomViews: Women Who Support Other Women

    Having a strong support system is one of the key ways to success. Some women find that support in each other, while others may never overcome their competitive ways. If done right, competition can be a good thing. In this MomViews segment, Sarah Joan from Just Simply Sarah discusses her experience with raising three girls in a world where positive female relationships aren’t always seen every day. MomViews: In life, you come across many different people. Some are willing to accept you for who you are, while others will find something about you that they don’t like. How have you been able to see beyond the differences in them? Sarah Joan: It’s…

    Feeding Your Baby Sprout Organic

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprout Organic Foods for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Going from breastfeeding your child to starting them on solids can be tough when you’re running around chasing your firstborn. Keeping the boys active is important for my sanity, but it all starts with what they’re taking in. You know what they say when you have two small children. It gets easier when you know what to expect the second time around. More than two years ago, I started our firstborn on solids. Occasionally, I would make his food from scratch. From fruits to vegetables, our firstborn was loving it.…

    Some nights I just stare at our boys as they sleep side by side next to me. They’re mama’s boys, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. A long day followed by a sleepless night is never fun.

As a full-time mom and blogger, I have to sit myself down sometimes and try to make sense out of what matters most to me. Many of the other moms who have started a blog as well said it’s been their outlet. A…

    Meet Milton: A Picky Eater’s Companion

    This post is sponsored by Meals With Milton but the content and opinion expressed are my own.  Trying to get your little one to eat a decent meal can be tough when you’re always on the go between errands and everyday life. If you have a picky eater, then you’re really in for a treat. I discovered Milton while scrolling through my Instagram feed. One of the moms I follow on Instagram had found relief by giving her child a mealtime companion. Her child was actually eating his meal and smiling. That sealed the deal for me to want to learn more about Milton. During the summer, we had one of…

    At-Home Workouts You’re Already Doing

    Going to the gym for a workout sounds like an extra task I really don’t need on my plate. Surprisingly, I weigh less today than I did prior to having children. Research shows that staying fit requires you to eat the right amount of nutrients and keep an active lifestyle. With kids, you’ve got that covered. Just think of all the leftovers you eat from your little one. It may not be a gourmet meal, but I’m pretty sure you try to feed your kids better than you feed yourself. So, indulge in that plate of half-eaten fruit and organic yogurt.  As for keeping active, your kids already have that…
