Eating meals together as a family can be very important to the well-being of the entire family. The whole family can be healthier, happier, and more united from regular, mostly relaxed family meals. Children may do better in school, and parents can feel more supported in their roles as joint caregivers. The benefits of sharing regular family meals together can be hard to pinpoint, especially when you’re in the middle of a toddler meltdown while trying to listening to your oldest complain about being bullied at school earlier that day. There can be a LOT going on during a family meal that makes you want to hide out in the laundry room with your very own “no it’s not for sharing” takeout container and enjoy your meal in peace! That’s just being real. But still there are real benefits of eating together that make it worth putting in the effort to make them happen “most of the time”.
Quickly getting dinner on the table can be a constant struggle at the end of our busy days. Since nightly take-out isn’t a healthy or cost effective option for most of us we need to have some go-to options that don’t require much thought or energy!

Kids generally love to craft and create, but they also want to be able to make something they’re genuinely proud of.

This space is supposed to be used to present myself as an “authority” of something I think YOU will find impressive, but that’s just not my style;) Instead I’ll say that technically, on good days, I’m an educator, blogger, and designer – and on ALL days I’m a mom.
This blog is a place where I hope you’ll find helpful & interesting “Mom Life” content- which as it turns out is about ALMOST anything and everything.
