I received a complementary Baby Charm Stroller Organizer in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and recommendations are my own. Thank you for your continued support of our blog.
As a mom, convenience has become a priority in my life. I need to be prepared at all times. I’m talking armed to the teeth with diapers, snacks, backup onesies, toys…you name it and I’m probably going to do my best to have it on hand.
This is why a reliable organizer, like the Baby charm found on Amazon, is so crucial in my day to day routine. Of course I have a big diaper bag that I tote around on errands, to Doctor’s appointments, and play dates. But when I took up running, I realized I needed something more compact.

To say that shopping with kids is frustrating would be the understatement of the year. The hassle of getting my toddler dressed and out the door alone makes me break out in a sweat. As I sat at home six months pregnant, I cringed at the thought of taking not one but TWO kids shopping for clothes.
Around that same time I was told by my editors at the Military Moms Blog about an opportunity to try a game changing subscription box called Wee Blessing.
Of course I was practically foaming at the mouth for the opportunity to review a clothing subscription that not only dresses kids, but the WHOLE family (adults and maternity included)!
These days with so many socia media networks, like Pinterest and Instagram, there seems to be so much pressure to be the “perfect” mom. While my husband works 12 hour (or more) work days, I find myself feeling guilty that maybe I’m not doing enough on the home front. I know I can’t be the only one experiencing this.
Whether you’re a stay at home mom or a working mom, we always feel like we could or should be doing more. More with our kids, more around the house…Well I’m here to stand with you and let go of that guilt! I will no longer compare myself to others and beat myself up for any “shortcomings” I feel I may have. Instead I will embrace the opportunity I’ve been given as a wife and mother and be proud of what I DO accomplish in a day!

It’s 6:00 on a Tuesday night and I should have started dinner half an hour ago. At this point I’ve Lost all motivation and will likely pop a cup of Easy Mac into the microwave for my toddler.
Sound familiar? We’ve all been there. As a stay at home mom, I face so many moments throughout the week where I immediately turn to sugary snacks or pre-made, processed meals. It’s not that I don’t like to cook, I actually love it. But I’m often faced with situations where we’re running late to an appointment or play date or spending the day running errands. Or I have a fussy toddler who wants me to play dinosaurs instead of going to the kitchen to cook for an hour.
As easy as it is to throw fruit snacks in the diaper bag or microwave a frozen dinner on these days, it’s just not satisfying. Most of the time these foods don’t leave us feeling full. Honestly, nothing can compare to fresh, healthy food.
So I have been left with wondering how we as moms and wives can make sure our family is getting high quality snacks and meals without resulting in us being in the kitchen all day. And without leaving us stressed out or feeling guilty for a less than nutritional meal.

As my son gets older it’s becoming more important to me that we start focusing on meaningful lessons during playtime. One thing we focused on last month was Giving Thanks.
In a world of increasing entitlement we want to raise our kids to be grateful. From family to the waitress at our favorite restaurant, I want them to acknowlege all that others do for them. Which leads me to our latest playtime adventure…
The Kid’s Night In Box
If you’re a regular visitor here at Beatuifully Imperfect Mama then you may have read a couple of my reviews on Night In Boxes. Well to my excitement they recently released a Kid’s Night In Box!
Each box comes curated with a variety of activities for kids ages 3-11. Our November box came with some great tools for our lesson on Giving Thanks.
While all opinions and recommendations are my own, the following is a sponsored post. This post also contains affiliate links for the sponsoring consultant. We both appreciate your support to keep our businesses thriving and to allow us to keep doing what we love!
Shopping (one of my favorite things to do)! I’ve always loved finding the perfect accessories but as I grow older, my shopping style has evolved. Before, the most important factor was PRICE. Don’t get me wrong, I still adore a good sale, but lately I find myself caring more about quality. Not just in terms of the product itself but the company that I’m buying from as well.
Rather than going directly for the price tag, I wonder about the company I am buying from. How do they treat their employees? Where do they source their materials from? Do they give back to the community in any way?
So when I heard about this incredible company called Sseko Designs, I had to learn more. It was easy to see at the first glance that this is a company dedicated to ethics and empowerment.
Have you ever dreaded going out of the house with your kids? Maybe it’s just a day of running to the grocery store and the bank or maybe it’s so you can finally make it to that dentist appointment you’ve been putting off for 6 months. Either way, you know your little one will be less than thrilled with the less than “kid friendly” activities.
To survive this sort of adventure you’ll need to pack the essentials. Of course, each child is different and there’s a very good chance that there will be some trial and error before you figure out what will keep your kids happy. For my “Toddzilla”, there are 5 ways I tend to keep him reined in during these outings.
