ALL MOMS PLEASE READ THIS!!! It is something I feel is super important

A few weeks ago, we had a very terrifying situation arise. My 6 month old was in her bouncer and I walked out of the room for a minute to use the bathroom. In the time I was gone, my 2 year old found jet dri (dishwasher stuff to remove spots) and poured it all over the baby. She thought she was giving the baby a bath. I had to scrub the baby down and rush her to the ER where they had to flush her eyes several times and wanted to sedate her but I wasnt going to let that happen unless absolutely necessary. She had a rash all over her body from the chemical and scratches in her eyes that required antibiotic ointment. The screams that came from my little girl terrified me. I thought that all of my cleaners were out of reach but little children are smart and my daughter figured out how to make "steps" to get to them.
Please make sure that you keep ALL cleaners in a safe place, out of sight or reach for children. The situation could have been A LOT worse if I hadnt reacted the way I did. The doctors said the quick response and cleaning her body and eyes may have saved her from hospitalization. I am begging all of you to please make sure that your kids absolutely can not get hold of cleaners.

New Year New Directions :)

Ok everyone. So I have decided to take some new directions with the blog this year. I am going to also be writing about topics I feel are important for families, personal experiences that might help someone else, and if anyone else has a topic that they would like to see please email me at

As part of the New Year, I would like to introduce myself a little bit to new readers. Everyone wants to know who they are reading.

I am a younger mama with 3 beautiful little girls ages 4,2, and 6 months. They have been such different children that I have experienced a lot with them.

My oldest was born via induction at 43 weeks weighing in at 9 lbs 1.5 oz.
My second was born via induction at 36 weeks due to heart rate decrease weighing in at 7 lbs 11 oz.
And the baby was born on her own at 38 weeks weighing in at 7 lbs 9.5 oz. She was not waiting and I delivered less then an hr after my water broke. Thankfully we were at the hospital for an ultrasound when it happened!

I cloth diaper, babywear, cosleep, and many other things.

I have been married since Valentines Day 2009. And found out 2 weeks later about baby number 2.

I probably missed a bunch but I dont want to write a book :)
