Now on to some fabulous posts for moms.
I love the way these bloggers are engaging their children, making fun memories, paying it forward, loving their mate, and balancing it all. Check out these great posts for building up our families.
- Jen at Confident in Grace came up with some great ideas to help parents. Her post titled How to host Game Night with Children in Tow was helpful for a new mom like me. If you like board games, or just want to make new friends, check out her post.
- And I love this post by Jodie Fitz on Kids and Meal Planning with free printable. She is training her kids how to plan their meals and her next step is to have them start prepping. What a great life skill and a wonderful way to spend time together as a family!
- Alice who blogs over at Mums Make Lists shared her 20 Working Mom Survival Tips. I like her list because I think when you plan and have balance (whether you work or not) you have a better schedule so you can spend time with family. Thanks Alice!
- If you have one in school and one at home, don’t miss Buggy and Buddy‘s post Managing Time After School. She shares some great ideas!
- Mother’s Niche shared some inspiring words on random acts of kindness and paying it forward. Her post Pay it forward with printable has a cute printable you can use when you buy the guy’s meal behind you in the drive-thru (or whatever your random act of kindness may be.)
- Nan at Mom’s the Word reminds me that one of the most important family members of all is my husband in her blog post Are you breaking or Repairing your Marriage today? It’s an encouraging post that I think you’ll enjoy.
This week we’ve got healthy, and we’ve got filling! Check out these amazing recipes.
- Jenn from We Do Fun Here caught my eye with these yummy Healthy Apple Chips

- Gina at Kleinworth & Co. shared a melt-in-your-mouth Chicken Cordon Bleu Mac & Cheese. My boys would love this dish!
- My husband loves Mexican and these Easy Beefy Bean Tostadas by Kari at Sourdough Native would hit the spot for him I’m sure.
So many great and wonderful ideas for teaching young children. Enjoy these posts by some wonderful bloggers.
- Have a little Girl? Check out this Cutting Practice – Haircut Doll post by Laura at Lalymom. Cute and fun!
