9923574

Rachel chose My Power Struggle Secrets! from BLOSSOM FAMILY. "I have a lot of experience with power struggles both as an incredibly stubborn child and now as a parent. I chose this post because it was a great reminder that defiance is not always directed related to the "request" that is being defied. She gives great tips on keeping communication respectful and open. Wouldn't we all like a more peaceful house?"

Angel chose Easter Baskets from Of Mice and Ramen. "I love these Easter cookies. They are just adorable. My daughter would absolutely love these."

cute_bath_time_bear_1

Katie chose Bath time!! from Living in Mommywood. "Although baths are so relaxing, they can be stressful for kids. Mari has lots of lovely tips to make bath time fun for kids too!"

Pompeian-Varietals-2-254x300

Debbie chose New Pompeian Varietals and Caprese Style Pizza Recipe from Lori's Culinary Creations. "This recipe sounds so amazing and had my mouth watering! The directions are broken down perfectly. I can't wait to try it, and to try this different type of olive oil."

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 12.27.38 PM

Juanita chose Deviled Chick Eggs from Foodista. "These eggs are so adorable. I'll be making them for our work Easter luncheon this week."

picture ledges 3

Michele chose Picture Ledges from Normal Everyday Life. "I picked this because something as simple as a DIY ledge can cost so much at the store (even IKEA!). It is nice to see a DIY version for those families that want quality things in their home without breaking the bank."

MoneyTalk

Jessica chose The money talk | Talking to your spouse about finances from Thrift for Today. "Loved the post! This is something I think all couples need to discuss with each other. Money is definitely a touchy subject but it's something that must be discussed especially if, God forbid, someone loses their job. I especially loved #3! In order to have a successful relationship period don't keep secrets! Thanks for sharing :)."

JackyHowOld

Lorna chose How Old is "Sexy?" from Ms. Toody Goo Shoes. "This story had great writing and inspiring to women of all ages."

000

Stacey chose 10 WordPress.org Plugins I Couldn’t Do Without from Budget Girl. "This is fabulous information! A couple of them I already use like CommentLuv & "Pin It Button" and a couple of them I am definitely going to look into. I love the recipe one, it is something that I have always wondered how it was done. I am glad that I added CommentLuv early on, it majorly cut down on the spam that I was getting. Thank you so much for sharing!"

Natasha chose You Walk that Way, Superwoman, and I'll Walk this Way from Time With A&N. "I completely agree with this post. It's so hard to engage your child every second that you're together. To me, it's more important to be together and to always be so interactive. Great post!"

twins 2

Lorna chose The Million Dollar Question from Normal Everyday Life. "I chose this post because it is beautifully written and she shows in her writing, that no matter whether you choose to work or stay at home you are and do have worth in the world."

teacher appreciation 5

Debbie chose Teacher Appreciation from Three Kids and a Fish. "I chose this post because I have so many kids that have often had the same teachers as their siblings. I love showing my appreciation to their teachers but it's hard to not just keep giving the same thing over and over again. These printables make it so you can give a teacher something nice to say how awesome they are but with a sweet personal twist to it."

highlo2

Michele chose High-Low Chair Vignette from The Coconut Head's Cancer Survival Guide. "It's my favorite because it shows how upcycling from a yard sale of Restore can make something new and usable again. Sometimes the best things in our homes are ones that have character or have a story to tell."

IMG_3518a

Katie chose We Made a Flower "Bed" for the Greenhouse from Penny's Vintage Home. "I chose it because Penny has clearly taken so much care over making sure her greenhouse is not just a place to pot plants, but a haven of beauty and tranquility. It's so romantic and quaint - the flower "bed" is just wonderful and so unique!"

LNMtitle

Juanita chose Loch Ness Monster, Free Pattern from Pickled Okra by Charlie. "I love how cute the Loch Ness Monster turns out, and the simplicity of the instructions. I can't wait to try making one myself."

sleepless

April chose Sleepless In Atlanta Pt.2 from New Mama Diaries. "As I struggle with the same problem, Tenns just wants her son to sleep through the night. Don't we all?"

Change Your Thoughts and Change Your World

Stacey chose Change Your Thoughts and Change Your World from Darlene Nemeth. "It took me a long time to realize that I needed to change my negative energy to positive energy and when I did it things started to change in my life. I still struggle at times, but I have to say that the positive thoughts have brought about many positive changes in my life."

10-Things-Ive-Learned  

Natasha chose 10 Things I’ve Learned as the Parent of a Child with Special Needs from From ABCs to ACTs. "This post is beautifully written, and can apply to every mom with every child. A must read!"
