I bet you’re here because you want to learn more about parenting. Am I right? I’m a mom and wife. I live this crazy life. I’ve been where you are and I know what you are going through. No one has an instruction book on “How to Be a Mom”, because let’s face it, our families are so different from each other. Our kids all have different needs. But we as women really need to stick together and help each other out whenever possible.
That’s why if you subscribe to my weekly newsletters I’ll send you all sorts of great information like:

I know what this mommy life is like! I’ve been there and done that!
- I know how it feels to be at home with sick kids all day long. Cleaning up after them, being sick yourself at the same time.
- I know how full your heart is when you watch them take their first steps and say their first words.
- I know what it’s like to have no adult conversation all day long and then you talk your husbands ear off when he gets home from work.
- I know what it’s like when you watch them figure something out on their own, without your help.
- I know what it’s like when you have to run errands with 3 small kids all begging and screaming for a toy they just saw.
- I know what it’s like to sit beside their bed singing so they will just stay on their bed and hear them start singing with you, and how that just melts your heart.
- I know what it’s like when you stand back and watch your teenagers drive the car away for the first time by themselves.
- I know what it feels like when you watch your teenager struggle with their friends.
- I know how unbearable some of those long drives to and from practice are, but I also know how amazing it feels when you watch your child make their first goal.
The life of a mom is amazing!
Some days you just can’t get enough of those cute little faces and the cute little things they say. Sometimes you just want to run outside and scream because you can’t handle ONE MORE QUESTION!
The life of a mom is hard. It’s confusing. It’s draining. But it’s so worth it.
And I’m right here to help you out.
Not only that, but I’m going to share with you my two MOST FAVORITE printables of all time right now!
I’m giving this to you for FREE because I know you need it. Especially if your kids are a little older.
Chore Charts for Kids with Text and Pictures!
These charts have been a life saver for me. All you do is print these out (there are multiple pages once you click on the link) cut them out and laminate them. These lists help your children be more independent and they keep you from having to look over their shoulder every two seconds! Hallelujah!
I have two different versions for you to choose from.
These chore charts make my life so much easier. I just rotate the name each week and the kids have their charts so there are no questions on what they need to do in each room. It saves me so much time and energy when I have these charts for them to use.

While you’re at it, don’t miss out on these ideas to help get your kids excited about cleaning. This post helps you make cleaning fun for your kids. I have little games that I play with my 10 year old son so he doesn’t just roll around on the ground the whole time, moaning! Try them on your kids, I guarantee they will help!
And don’t forget that a job well done deserves a reward. I try to teach my kids that we all have to help out around the house, so we shouldn’t get paid for it. But this idea is a great one to help them feel accomplished. And it will help your kids unplug more to! Win, Win!
Learn how we use these puzzle pieces to reward our kids. You’ll love this idea!
Don’t have time to read it?
Listen to me talk about it on my PODCAST then!
Let’s not forget that kids are capable of different things at different ages. I’ve put together a list of things a child should be able to do all on his own at certain ages. This list is a lifesaver because I know not to expect too much from my little ones, but at the same time I make sure they are doing what they are capable of and contributing to the family.
Remember, when you subscribe to my newsletters, you’ll get this free printable: “What is My Child Capable of Doing and at What Age?”
This is a very valuable list that will really save you a lot of frustration while teaching your child to be independent. Sign up for my newsletters and you will receive this printable list FREE!
