Budget Friendly Gardening Tips

I've written before about how much my boys love nature and working in our garden. And I'm a firm believer that these experiences are vital to their development and their emotional wellbeing. One of the tough things about being on a budget is justifying the cost of garden supplies and plants, especially when you are renting. I believe that the expense is worth it and have a few tips and trips to create an awesome garden without the huge cost associated with hiring landscapers. This morning K and I went to Lowe's after we dropped D off at preschool and picked up a hanging plant, a potted hibiscus, 2 bags of mulch, and rocks for our rock garden for $15!

How I Work Out at Home for Free- No Equipment, No More Excuses!

One of the hardest things for me to figure out lately is how to workout with the kids. A gym membership isn't in the budget which means whatever I do I have to have them with me. I had been pushing them in the double jogging stroller but I wasn't really seeing the results I was hoping for (read- my weight plateaued). Plus, the kids are NOT always cooperative. Some days it felt like I was stopping  every 20 feet to pick up a shoes, get a cracker, refill a sippy cup etc.

Preschool Is Coming- And I'm Not Ready


***Post contains affiliate links. This means I earn a small commission off of purchases made through the links***





A week from Monday marks a HUGE transition in our lives. D will start preschool. Up until this point he's always been with me. I am both so excited for him and so anxious. I don't normally write about the kids out of privacy concerns but I think this is such an important conversation to have.

You see this isn't just preschool; this is the culmination of 4 years of work to get my little preemie ready. We have spent THOUSANDS of hours in Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Feeding Therapy to help him do what his neurotypical peers can do instinctively. He has been a rockstar and worked hard toward each goal we set before him. And now it's time to let him fly. He's ready. I KNOW he's ready.

And yet...
