Mommy and Me: Nutrition Pyramid by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Nutrition Pyramid  by Emily Sitdikova

I’m pretty sure that one universal rule in parenting is healthy food first, then you can eat dessert or ‘junk’ food. This concept is very difficult for my young son to understand! I go into detail on a daily basis how he needs to fill up his tummy with nutritious, healthy food that has vitamins […]

Mommy and Me: Are you Making Good Decisions? by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Are you Making Good Decisions? by Emily Sitdikova

My most common phrase to my kids as of late, multiple times a day, would be ‘are you making good decisions?’ 90% of the time this is being yelled up the stairs to the play room where either it is suspiciously quiet OR uncomfortably loud accompanied by giggling. Typically it’s because I’m just to lazy […]

Mommy & Me: Anatomy of Motherhood by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy & Me: Anatomy of Motherhood by Emily Sitdikova

My sweet baby girl, Olivia, is at my very favorite age of 18 months, where she is learning so much each and every day! She repeats words and understands their meanings, accepts instruction and follows through, is interested in new activities and different hobbies than I am used to with a boy and simply amazes […]

Mommy and Me: Cleanup, Cleanup, Everybody Do Your Share by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Cleanup, Cleanup, Everybody Do Your Share by Emily Sitdikova

At three and a half, our biggest struggle with my son is teaching responsibility, especially in the area of cleaning up toys after we’ve played with them. They say the issues only get harder from here, so I’ll take em’ while they’re minimal! Liam loves to play with lots of different toys for a few […]

Mommy and Me: Hide ‘Em In Your Heart by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Hide ‘Em In Your Heart by Emily Sitdikova

Often times I find myself ridden with anxiety over financial burdens, marital questions, parenting topics,house hunting dilemmas, the latest fad in nutrition guidelines or a particularity stressful work day (Ha! Stay home moms get them too!). It’s hard to quiet my heart and listen to anything God might be trying to teach me or help […]

Mommy and Me: Sign Language by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Sign Language by Emily Sitdikova

My son Liam’s new favorite question is ‘what does that sign say?’ I hear it about 47 times every single day. It’s fun to know he’s interested in reading and noticing letters and signage, but sometimes I just make something up since half the time we’re driving and I can’t read it anyway! The best […]

Mommy and Me: Who’s Your Daddy? By Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Who’s Your Daddy? By Emily Sitdikova

By Emily Sitdikova Usually my posts are about me as a mother and parenting my little youngsters, but sometimes it’s hard to remember that I am also a child. I have always been a huge daddy’s girl and loved every minute of the time I got to spend and be with my dad. I remember […]

Mommy & Me: Light My Way by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy & Me: Light My Way by Emily Sitdikova

By Emily Sitdikova Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 Flashlights. I swear, kids just have an obsession with them! I have been on more than one play date where all the kids will sit in a dark closet and play with flashlights and giggle for […]

Mommy and Me: Why Go to Church? – by Emily Sitdikova

Mommy and Me: Why Go to Church? – by Emily Sitdikova

By: Emily Sitdikova Do you ever wake up on a Sunday morning after a long night of restless tossing and turning, a late night Saturday out with friends, a bed-wetting accident at 3:00am or endless hours of comforting babies with bad dreams? Do you ever think – maybe today, just this one time, I’ll just […]
