Do-It-Yourself: Making Your Own Cleaning Products

As parents we want to keep our homes not only comfortable and fun, but safe for out little ones.

20 Spooktacular Tips For a Green Halloween

Back in the day, we celebrated Halloween the eco-friendly way before we knew what eco-friendly meant. Costumes weren’t bought in a bag, they were made. Halloween treats were usually homemade and gobbled up as soon as they were dropped into our Halloween sacks (aka pillowcases). We would bob for apples, snack on popcorn balls, tell scary stories, and play flashlight tag in the dark.

Sleep. Or lack thereof.

I remember when I was in college and getting up at 8AM felt just wrong. Last night my almost 2-year old woke up at 10PM, 2AM and then finally at 5AM. She wasn’t hungry. Her diaper was fine. I don’t think she’s teething. Yet she woke up screaming and desperate to leave her crib.

BornFree® Moms Making a Difference: Shower of Hope

On Tuesday, May 24, 2011, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes ravaged Oklahoma. My little family of four was tucked away in a closet and listened to the radio for weather updates as the rain and wind pounded our home. We were blessed and fortunate enough to miss the tornadoes. Shortly after the storm had passed, my husband and I tucked our two little boys (9-months and 2-years old) in bed, said bedtime prayers and watched our little ones fall asleep. We were all safe and sound.
