Beautiful DIY Mother's Day Flower Pots

We love our mothers. What better way to show them than giving them a gift you made or even better, a gift their granddaughter made! These could also just be a nice spring project for you and your little one. This project can be rather messy so go ahead and grab that old T-shirt you're never going to wear and stick it on your little one. The acrylic paint we used for the terracotta pots does NOT come off, which makes it great for an outdoor piece. I'm sure you could use crayola paint if it is going to be kept...

Power Pumping

Power Pumping

Power pumping is a method I learned from scoping the internet for ways to increase milk production. It is said to simulate a growth spurt your baby would have. We all know that when babies and children are growing, they are extra hungry! Since lactation works on a supply-and-demand basis, this makes sense. You pump until your body believes it needs to produce more to keep up with your baby's needs.

Saving On Purchases (The Busy Mom Way)

You should also look to see if there is an available gift card on Raise, especially for purchases of higher value. If you are grocery shopping, especially for diapers or pharmacy...

About Amber

Posted by Amber Altomare on

I love to talk! I talk about my kids, my life, even sales that I get on purchases. Most of the time I am probably talking to people about things and they've already stopped caring. With a blog, people are choosing to read what I have to say because it may pertain to them! I am a mother of two. I had my daughter when I was 20 and my son when I was 22. I loved being able to say that I had two kids 22 months apart at 22! I finished my associate's degree when I was pregnant...

Two Babies are Better than One

Posted by Amber Altomare on

My daughter is fairly easy, she spoke at an early age so she is pretty vocal about what she needs/wants. Only recently did she start crying when she wants something rather than asking. It could either be her last set of molars coming in OR it could be the fact that she sees that when the baby cries, he gets attention, or maybe she is just going through an emotional time. Who knows. All through my pregnancy I wondered things like: How am I going to go grocery shopping? How am I going to get in and out of the...
