Simple Things Every Mom Needs to Succeed

Being a mom is a tough job. There’s always someone who needs you or a task to be accomplished. It takes real determination and stamina to make sure the household and your career continue to run smoothly. You’re busy, tired and probably don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands.

There’s no reason to worry. Take a look at what you’re working with and believe in yourself. You can do it with your perseverance and a few extra tools in your back pocket. All it takes is your willingness to step up to the plate and try. See simple things every mom needs to succeed.

Best Friend

Every mom needs a best friend who they can bounce ideas off or sneak away for a ladies’ night out with. Your girlfriend is someone who you can tell it all to, and suggest products that work to, like NeuEve. She understands without you even having to give an awkward explanation. Your best friend is the person who’s at your house the day your kids are sick because you need an extra hand. She gets you and doesn’t mind going the extra mile to help you out. It works because she knows you’d do the same for her.

Alone Time

You can’t survive as a mom without your alone time. Be sure to schedule it as often as possible so you have time to yourself. Use this as self-care time and go get a manicure or curl up and read a good book. Your family will see you when you’re done, so don’t worry about them while you’re supposed to be relaxing. It doesn’t do you any good feeling guilty or bad about taking time for yourself. Remember how hard you work and that you deserve it.


Being a busy mom that works hard both inside and outside the home is a good enough reason why you should hire a cleaner. Be honest about how much extra time you have to tidy up the house, and if it’s non-existent then talk to your spouse about getting a cleaner onboard. You’ll come home to a clean house after a long day or work and won’t feel as stressed. It’ll be worth the small investment it takes to secure help.

Work-Life Balance

Find a work-life balance by setting boundaries and knowing when to call it quits at both locations. Learn to say no to the person at work who keeps asking you to stay late. Make meals ahead of time so you’re prepared to serve them each week. Help yourself out by keeping a schedule and not overcommitting yourself in any one area. Remember to save a couple of calendar slots to take care of you too.


Health is something we all need yet sometimes we put it last on our priority. Many moms and even dads too are finding new energy and health from great vitamins. Gut health is such a major factor in how we feel. Find a great probiotic and supplements. Plexus is getting awards and have proven to help many people have energy, feel better, and even help some get off prescription medications. Plexus offers a wide variety of products!


Instead of stressing about your mom duties, make a plan and charge ahead with purpose. Work efficiently and you’ll feel a lot less overwhelmed each week. These are simple things every mom needs to succeed.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
