How To Earn Money On Bedrest

Money On bedrest

Last year I spent eighty-six days on strict bedrest. Yes, I said 86!! It put huge strains on our family mentally, physically, emotionally, and most of all financially. I make a large part of our income.  I was lucky and had short term disability that paid 50% of my income.  Unfortunately, we had been living above our means and to prepare for the baby and pay all of our bills we used up a large portion of our savings while I was on bedrest. This meant I spent a lot of time searching for ways to earn extra money.  My…

Bringing Focus To Daily Life With Your ADHD Child

                 Last month I found myself sitting outside my 7-year-olds room.  We were both in tears.  He was inside his room with the door shut throwing a tantrum yelling about how stupid he is and that he wished he had never been born.  I sat outside of his room tears streaming down my face, trying to calm down from the argument we had just had and wondering if I was completely failing my kid. My husband had been out of town for a week and would be for three more.  I was suddenly…

Why I Kicked My Caffeine Addiction

caffeine addiction

*This post contains affiliate links, but I don’t recommend anything I don’t love and use! Hi, my name is Bre and I’m a Caffeine Addict. Or so I used to be… I would wake up to a cup of coffee, a few pops in the afternoon, a Starbucks drive by on my way home from work, and then wonder why I would have massive panic attacks and struggle to fall asleep. It didn’t click until when talking to my doctor about my anxiety he asked if I tried cutting out caffeine. It was such a simple suggestion that made a massive…

A Day In The Life Of An Exclusively Pumping, Full-Time Working Mom

Exclusively Pumping; Full Time Working Mom

My baby is 5 months old and has long been sleeping through the night. However, my first alarm for the day goes off at 2am.  I make my way out to the kitchen, heat up some milk and add it to the baby’s continuous feed bag.  Sometimes I’ll then sit down and pump but often I fall exhausted back into bed.  My next alarm goes off at 5am and I debate whether or not I have enough time to sleep another half hour.  The answer is always no so I grab my robe and phone and quietly sneak out to…

How To Start A Blog And Start Earning Right Away

I first decided to start a blog out of boredom.  I was on bedrest and looking for ways to spend my time while making some spending money on the side.  I spent hours on Pinterest researching the best way to go about starting a blog and all things related.  Here is how I quickly and cheaply started up a profitable blog. I ended up spending the money and starting a blog with WordPress using Bluehost. I initially set up with Blogger but after comparing the two and learning about the abilities to customize with WordPress I decided to spend the money.…

Time Savers For Working Moms

To sum it up I am a full time working mom.  I exclusively pump (that means 3 hours a day at the pump), I have a baby that requires extra medical care, and my husband works out of town a lot.  This means my days start at 5am and end after 10pm and I still don’t have enough time.  This post contains affiliate links to companies that help keep me sane and run a mostly functional household.

Making An Older Child Feel Special After Bringing Home A New Baby

Not only did we bring home a newborn, but we brought home a baby that require more attention and fussing over than the normal baby.  My husband and I were exhausted and barely keeping it together. I went back to work just four weeks after him coming home and we were just trying to keep our heads above water. One day my seven-year-old son broke down over something really silly.  We sat down and had a talk and I realized how much we had been neglecting him emotionally. The two of us had a long discussion about what he needed…
