    A New Year – (Ep. 11)

    A New Year always brings new resolutions and promises that this year will be better than last year or that things we want will happen A fresh start to a year to make things right is what many people are looking for. For me, I am looking for a year that is not about a broken leg. Although 2018 was the year I had my son and I have so many great memories that I will cherish forever, I still will always remember 2018 as the year that I broke my leg and the negative aspects that came along with it. I am lucky that family and friends were around…

    Moderation During the Holidays – (Ep. 10)

    As this is my son’s first Christmas, I am trying to keep myself in check and not do to much.  I wish I could say that I am doing everything to keep things in moderation, but sometimes it is a struggle.  Christmas is the only holiday that I decorate for. All the other holidays I might have a dish or dish towel that goes with the holiday, but nothing like Christmas. I have a tree decorated in every room of my house – including bathrooms!  So I think that is why I may be doing more than I thought I would for my son during Christmas.   How am I…

    It is no secret that I love Disney World.  I enjoyed going as a kid and I enjoy going as an adult.  I am excited to take my son and see Disney through his eyes.  However, I will be waiting a few years and here is why.   Most of my friends and family thought I would take my child to Disney as soon as I could.  I would if I did not work, had a large vacation budget I could spend each year, and I could travel when Florida weather was not too hot or too cold.  But I can not do all those things. So I have to…

    Cooking For My Family – (Ep. 8)

    Cooking for my family has become a priority of mine since I started walking again.  Breaking my leg changed my perspective on how I saw many things (go listen to episode 4 to hear about my leg).  I want to spend as much time with my husband and child as I can and I want to provide that meal time togetherness I had growing up.     So for the past month, I have been making our dinners and my son’s food each day.  I’ll start with the grownup food first. My son has a bottle at 5pm each day. While my husband feeds him, I start to make our…

    How Do I Make a Quick Easy Meal with a Child

    Saying it is an easy meal maybe relative.  I find it harder and harder to cook while entertaining a child.  But I am trying to get better and more consistent feeding my family on a regular basis when I can.  So I do have some go to meals that take about 20-25 minutes total to make. They are not always the most healthy meals, but they taste good!     This meal is called the Sausage, Pasta, Tomato Thing.  It can be made in many different ways. But here is how I make it.       I like this meal because I can entertain my child as I make…
