A Gift for the Holidays for the Family

The most amazing gifts that were ever placed in my arms were my six children. If you are a mom you know the joy of those first moments with your child. And if you are about to become a mother for the first time your heart is about to burst with love!

When I gave birth to my three biological children I vaguely remember a pamphlet about Cord Blood Registry (CBR), but no one I knew had ever done it or talked about it.  Read more

Gift mom a night off


Halloween came and we hit the ground running for the holiday season! If you are a mom, you know that from Halloween till the kids go back to school after New Years you have a list a mile long and a calendar so full you need an assistant to keep up with it!

Let’s not even talk about the fact that this is also the season of getting nasty viruses, coughs, colds and the crazy exhaustion that the kids feel just as much as you do!

I believe it’s safe to say, that while we as moms absolutely love the holiday season… it can be quite exhausting to keep up with!

Just this past week, we have had doctor appointments, school programs, after-school activities, events, seeing Santa, decorations to put up, house to clean for company, Christmas present shopping, 1,000 trips to the grocery store and a whole bunch of other things my brain just can’t remember!

Please, don’t get me wrong, I am NOT complaining! I love this crazy season with my children. They find so much magic in seeing the lights on our Christmas tree and putting the star on top. I am giddy with excitement over some of the toys I will be gifting them for Christmas. And I just about balled my eyes out at the girl’s little Christmas program, they were just too adorable!

But…. When my husband suggested I needed a night off… I am pretty sure I did a little happy dance!

My night off did NOT even make a scratch in our tight holiday budget. Want to know my secret?

Gift Mom a Night off with Coca-Cola & Kroger Fresh Ready to Heat Pizza

It’s such an amazing deal! We bought three pizzas for our big family!

You have no idea how much it means to a mom to have a night where the kitchen doesn’t have to be a disaster zone and the constant “What’s for dinner?” question doesn’t get asked a thousand times!

My husband even got the big boys to join in and help him with my night off. They even served me dinner on the couch.

We watched a Christmas movie after dinner and then my husband put the kids to bed. It was just wonderful!

If you are a mom, please feel free to share this with your hubby as a “Ahem” SUBTLE HINT! Or when you are at Kroger this week stock up on a few Kroger fresh ready-to-heat pizzas and Coca-Colas and plan your own night off when you need it the most!IMG_4274

It will do you a world of good!

Happy Night Off!!!!

There is a huge difference in shopping for a car when you don’t have kids and when you do. There are a lot of factors to consider every time your family grows. 

Top priority for my husband and I on our last car purchase?
Can you fit three carseats in a row?
