Connecting moms to other moms, resources, and products. As well as a bit of comic relief in between. I have two children, both toddlers a year apart. I work, so i'm always looking for ways to maximize the time i spend with my children. My son has food allergies, so I'm always reaching out and helping moms find gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free alternatives that are delicous and taste great. Also anything that makes life as a mom easier in general!

Picky eaters anyone? . . . Sometimes the only way I can seem to get my kids to eat their ‘veggies’ is if they come in candy form. So these days we have the whole family on the @maryruthorganics . . My kids love that they taste like gummy bears, I love that they are getting everything they need to stay healthy, and I can order them on amazon . . . #maryruthpartner #collab #kidsvitamins #multivitamin #healthykids #normalmomsclub #babeswhocreate #nebabeswhocreate #ctmoms #connecticutmoms #ctkids #connecticutkids #toddlerswag

when the dad I didn't know died

Now I sit here in the early spring, windows open, stuck in the house on quarantine, aside from two days ago when I took the hour and a half drive to Bear Mountain to see his house for the first time in my life.. , I’ve always known I was a lot like my father without really knowing him.. it was just a feeling I got from family, family that I’m still to afraid to ask about my absent father When I returned to Connecticut about 7 years later,  I again reached out to my father while going through hard times, just as he did every-time I called him, he came, we went out for Italian food or seafood, and had our usual awkward meeting, through strained conversation. in the end it’s not my fault, I know that it was his job to forge a bond, it was his job to prove he wasn’t the person he was made out to be.

Dear America.. I'm sorry we are a burden

I didn’t intend on becoming a single mom, I don’t The fact that a lot of America, including people who thought I had learned compassion from, thinks that me and my kids should be standing in lines at food pantries, and unvaccinated from a coronavirus… scares me. Please don’t try to explain how everyone is equal when its legal for my employer to pay me $6.38 an hour, but cut them just below full-time so they can avoid providing me health insurance… I’m grateful that there are some Americans who don’t want to see me and my kids starve, or die from a preventable illness. Because my job will only give me enough hours to put me under full time so that they don’t have to give me insurance, a job that I can’t call out of without a doctors note.

Hydration Supplements for busy moms

Most hydration supplements come in a variety of flavors so you aren’t just drinking plain water Imagine not having to drink your dehydrating coffee but having the same kick with the added benefits of hydration. Hydration Supplements help you recover fast after a workout All have their own formula, but usually a combination of minerals, glucose, and salts that will help balance your electrolytes . Using a hydration supplement can help you get the electrolytes and hydration that you need to feel better (or at least function) Different varieties and brands can contain other supplements you need You can find hydration supplements with a variety of vitamins, which I love, one of my favorite are the Vital Proteins Collagen Waters, these are amazing.

Life is like a cup of tea.... it’s all up to how you make it. . And you can have it anyway you like, with or without bubbles at the @thegreenteahouseusa located in the West Farms Mall. . . The @nebabeswhocreate headed out for tea time and I tried this white jasmine green tea, iced it was absolutely the refreshing boost I needed for my day. . . If you are looking for a unique gift idea, or just a spot to take a break from holiday shopping at the mall (why not both) be sure to check out this adorable tea nook in the mall! . I can’t wait to show you what I got for the kids while I was there!! . . . . . . . #teatime #nebabeswhocreate #babesofinstagram #babeswhocreate #normalmomsclub #westfarmsmall #teaofct #connecticut #connecticutmoms #momsofct #connecticutlife #localct #teasofinstagram #greentea #icedtea

New Article in Connecticut Food and Farm Magazine

Molly and I chatted about Popovers, Savory Pancakes, hiding ingredients and she even gave  me some recipes to share. Check out my article for Connecticut Food and Farm Magazine for the full article and recipes!

Anyone else grown tired of the same glassware? . . Check out these stemless wine glasses from @dragonglassware they are not only super chic, but sturdy enough to hold up during your holiday party. . . I love their entire line, so be sure to check them out. We loved using then at the @nebabeswhocreate Babesgiving this year. . . These unique glasses would make a great addition to any set, or a wonderful gift for someone who has everything! . . . . . . #cheers #winelover #winetime #wineglass #sommolier #holidays #pinogrigio #babesofinstagram #babeswhocreate #nebabeswhocreate #babessupportingbabes #communityovercompetition #babesgiving

Looking a little beat up after his latest tumble down some stairs at grandma’s, this little guy is all about some @chipotle . . It can be hard to find quick and easy eats when we travel, that we all like, and are ALSO #glutenfree . . Tacos and quesadillas are always a crowd pleaser, at 2 years old this guy already knows his order 🤣 . . Because they are already peanut and egg free, it’s easy for us to customize a healthy and filling meal! . . . #chipotle #glutenfree #glutenfreekids #allergyfriendly #allergickids #dairyfree #peanutfree #tacotuesday #taco #quesadilla #ctkids #healthyfastfood #momsonthego #busymomlife #healthykidsfood
