My latest poem “Hide Your Heart” https://thatnewcrunchymom.wordpress.com/2017/04/04/hide-your-heart/?preview=true
My son saw a goose outside of our local grocery store. Now he wants a pet goose. Anyone know if you can get one at a pet store? 😂
So, things got a little exciting around here this week. I ended up calling poison control because my son ate part of a toy. Fun times. Have you ever had to call poison control?
Do you ever have those moments when you are trying to be a good parent and teach your child something important, but end up accidentally traumatizing them in the process? No? Just me? 😂😪😂
Motherhood can be really challenging, especially if you surround yourself with negativity and people who act like children are a burden. To combat that, I’ve made this video on 5 Things I Admire About My Toddler!
This is a video on all the crazy things I did before I found out I was pregnant (I blame the hormones!!), all the weird cravings I had, etc.
Hey there! 🙂
I know it has been a long time since I’ve written a post that was more of a personal life update but I wanted to make this announcement in a very personal and sincere way.
As some of you already know, I juggle a lot of projects, probably to many, on a regular basis. I’m a housewife, mother, I cloth diaper and cook all our meals due to allergies from dioxins and food. I also work part time in a plant business our family bought and manage to update three websites, run a YouTube and guest post for Anne Cohen. I just placed myself on fiverr for hire as well as a writer, so we will see how that goes.
My husband also juggles a lot. He works 50+ hours on one job, works for the same plant business I do that we bought, on top of running a podcast and writing a fiction book. All that this to say, we are really busy people who try to provide well for our son. We are constantly looking for new streams of passive income to supplement what we earn.
This past week, my husband and I had an idea based off something a fellow blogger had done: publish a short story on Amazon.
My husband has many more completed short stories from over the years, so he chose one he really loved and published it this past Sunday.
The story is called The Three Princes and The Dragon and is a fairytale in a style similar to Grimm’s. It is 99 cents on Amazon. Here is the official teaser:
In this story – a fairy tale in the style of Grimm’s – a dying king must entrust his nation to one of his three sons. But which? The one who can slay the dragon, as you might expect. Each brother tries his own approach in turn, but will any succeed? And how?
It would mean the world to me if you would go check it out (and if you do, please let me know so I can thank you personally) and review it if you like!
You can find it here: The Three Princes and The Dragon
God’s blessings to you all,

He also insists that there is a right way to put on the toilet paper roll, and I disagree, but you know what? It doesn’t matter if you can’t even put the toilet paper roll on the roller because the toddler is like a cat and will unroll it all and throw it in the toilet, so ha! We will settle this one when our son acts more like a human than a cat.
The stories we tell ourselves are powerful. They aren’t just daydreams or fantasies, they are a reflection of what is in our hearts.
