Winter is here and it seems like everyone is sick or just getting over being sick! The cold months are frequently referred to as sick season as people start getting sick more often and are having to make more frequent visits to the doctor. Many professionals believe the higher rates of illness in the winter are due to less outside...

Many parents are finding themselves increasingly frustrated by the current state of public schools across the country. Kids are more stressed than ever before, childhood emotional disorders and learning disabilities are at an all-time high, and in some school’s recess, art and music classes are being cut from the school day. Many families are unhappy with the new status quo,...

We all know that enough sleep is important to function well and be happy overall. There is no difference between adults and kids. Just the amount of sleep we need and the problems we face at night are different. After I’ve stretched on the importance of healthy eating habits in my last post (https://www.kachytv.com/4-simple-eating-habits-that-will-keep-your-kid-healthy), I want to talk about sleeping practices and habits...

Parenting is an amazing journey that fills us with wonder and gratitude. It’s also challenging and exhausting at times. At some point in your parenting journey you might start to feel like you’ve got not patience left; you might be grumpy, anxious and constantly feeling overwhelmed. You might even find yourself snapping at your kids more often. The moments of...

I am almost in the second trimester of my second pregnancy and I couldn’t be more happy. When I was pregnant with my daughter (who is now 2.5) I had it fairly easy.

And at other times, we get...

I am a little nerdy about saving money sometimes. I guess when you’re on a tight budget, it forces you to be creative. I’ve always loved shopping second-hand and get most of my own clothes at thrift stores. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I knew I wanted to do the same. After all, babies grow SO fast, sometimes...

One of the most amazing experiences of my life so far has been breastfeeding. When I became pregnant with my daughter, I knew I wanted to breastfeed, but my reasons were purely logistical; I wanted to provide food for her in an efficient, nutritious and money saving manner. I was not yet aware of all the other wonderful parts of...

As the mother of two children, I can say with certainty that I am done having babies; our family is complete! I look back on those first few months after having each of my children with a feeling of nostalgia and a slight fogginess, caused by the exhaustion and overwhelm every mom feels during this magical time. Though I look...

Before I became a parent, I thought I knew everything about parenting. I would hear stories about kids throwing tantrums in the mall, and think, “My kids will never do that!” I would read rants and complains from moms on Facebook and automatically think I knew a better way. I’ll admit it. I was judgmental. I was a bit of a jerk,...
