Toy Organization: Canvas Bags and Photo Labels

I’ve been purging. Yes, recently I was that mean mom who raked through the playroom while the kids were sleeping and filled up two donation boxes of toys and sent them away never to be seen again. So far, no one (meaning the four-year-old) has noticed that anything is missing. But, we still had a ridiculous toy organization...

Lust/Must {For Real People}

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Featured Posts, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 0 comments

You know how in magazines they have that “Lust/Must” section?  And the “musts” that are supposed to be for us normal people are still $300-$400 for a shirt or a dress or a pair of shoes or whatever? Yeah.  It’s crazy.  Here’s the same idea–but the cheaper version?  It’s actually cheaper.  As in,...

Classroom Discipline in the Living Room.

Classroom Discipline in the Living Room.

I can’t tell you the number of times I would sit across from parents at parent/teacher conferences and say, “Your child is fantastic! I love having him in class, and he is a great example to his friends,” and the parents would look at me dumb-founded and reply back,  “Are we talking about the same kid?” It’s...

So, what is a Nurse Practitioner anyway?

If you have followed momcoloredglasses for awhile, you know that I am interested in a lot of things….writing, reading, cooking, creating things. However, one of my greatest interests, the one I actually get paid to do involves health, wellness, being a nurse and practicing medicine. I am a Nurse Practitioner. I decided to...

When naps go away…..here’s how to cope.

Posted by on Aug 2, 2013 in Be Informed, Featured Posts, Savvy Advice | 1 comment

I think that mourning the end of nap time is a rite of passage for most parents–one that we enjoy about as much as our first painful break-up.  And don’t get me wrong, I’m that mom that thinks it’s a-okay if my daughter lives with me forever–like she tells me she’s going to….but nap-time...

Three Jars {First lessons in money for little ones}

My four year old just started asking how much things cost.  We’ll be in the grocery store and she’ll want to know how much money that stuffed animal “will take.”  She’ll ask me if we have enough money to buy a toy today.  She’ll wonder about the bread that I put into the cart and say, “Does that cost a...

Ditching the Rut: Books, Apps, and Strategies to Freshen Your Routine

The grocery store closest to our house is undergoing a major renovation. By major, I mean that every time I go shopping it is like I am embarking on a scavenger hunt to find everything on my list. I will be honest, I have been seriously grumpy about it, but this morning, as we were wandering around trying to find the kindergarten graduation cards, I...
