  • I Watched “What the Health”. Now What?

    I Watched "What the Health". So now what? | MommyWifeLife

    The popular documentary, What the Health, has many Americans wondering how they can become vegans. It has shined a light on practices of farmers, doctors, the government, and most importantly, us as consumers. At some point, we have all failed to make the best decisions in regards to our health and food consumption. What the Health has sort of awakened a desire to do better. For some, becoming vegan or vegetarian has become a top priority. Personally, it has helped me to become even more conscious about what I am feeding myself and my family.…

    Sweet Heat BBQ Steak Philly at Charleys | MommyWifeLife

    On a typical Saturday my family and I do housework, maybe a little shopping and then to church. After church we always grab something quick to eat on our way home. Since the kids are a little on the picky side, we normally end up someplace that has chicken fingers or nuggets for the girls. Luckily, a recent Saturday out led us to Charleys, which had something for our whole family.…

    Goldfish Swim School Promotes Water Safety | MommyWifeLife

    The first day of summer is always at the end of June, but Memorial Day weekend seems to be the unofficial summer kick-off. Pools, especially in states in the Midwest, open up again for swimming. It’s also the perfect time for parents and children to be reminded of water safety tips, which is why May is National Water Safety Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control, drowning is the leading cause of accidental injury deaths among children ages one to four. Goldfish Swim School hosts an event to help prevent such incidents.…

    Swimming with Eczema at Goldfish Swim School | MommyWifeLife.com

    Babies can experience many changes in their skin and my baby girl’s skin has had its share of changes. It has gone from soft to dry, blotchy to bumpy. When she was around two months old I realized she had eczema. Luckily I found some products that work really well with her skin. However, I was slightly hesitant when considering whether to enroll in swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School because I was unsure how swimming with eczema would work.…

    10 Reasons to Love Goldfish Swim School | MommyWifeLife

    My baby girl is a swimmer! Well, not quite, but she is on her way, thanks to our weekly lessons at Goldfish Swim School in Westerville. My family is not new to Goldfish Swim School because last year our oldest girls took lessons for a few months. I loved it then, and I love it even more now that my six month old daughter has joined.…

    Feed Your Baby Real Food | MommyWifeLife

    Breastfeeding has been proven to be super beneficial for both mommy and baby, which is why I have breastfed all my children for up to at least their first five months. I breastfed my first child for five months and had to stop because my second child was on her way, causing my milk supply to slowly dwindle. By the time baby number two reached six months old I was (selfishly) over sharing my body with babies. This is when I started supplementing with formula. The thought of transitioning to bottles and solids with baby three came a little later than the first two. This time around I have cherished the infant months a little more so I’ve been in no hurry to rush her along.

  • Eliminate Stress by Putting the Kids to Work

    Eliminate stress by putting the kids to work.

    Most of the stress I experience comes from necessary day-to-day responsibilities of maintaining our home and my slightly perfectionist ways. Every mom of young children I talk to about cleaning says the same thing–cleaning with children in the home is practically a never ending chore. The trails of toys, mounds of laundry, sink full of dishes and kitchen floor dusted with crumbs for days are just some of the things I see everyday that just about send me over the edge. I am on a quest to eliminate stress and the desire for perfection. Since I love my kiddos dearly, I have decided to keep them around (wink) and put them to them to work.…
