Family Meal Times

In our house, meal times aren't like they used to be. Before we had two babies to contend with we were constantly having sit down meals that I was able to spend as much time as needed on them. We were all able to sit down and eat together. Now, during at least one of the family meals one of the toddlers are napping or Sean isn't home yet from work. Our table isn't big enough for all of us to top it off. However, even if I have to stand while the kids eat and talk with them, they are important.

Unfortunately, finding a quick and easy recipe that suits all the kids tastes or dietary needs can be super frustrating. On most days I take the quick and easy route and pop open a can of sauce and boil some pasta. I'm drained and who wants to make anything more complicated then that when your tired, but more and more I find myself looking for different kinds of meals that are quick, have minimal ingredients, and most importantly taste good. We have a pretty big diary allergy in …

Back To Blogging

There has been a significant time lapse since the last time I blogged and the only thing I can say is, I missed this. A few years back I had started this blog to share my life as a new Kinship Mom and when things got a little nutty I stopped to focus on my family exclusively. So let me reintroduce myself.
My name is Renee. I'm a mom of four beautiful boys and wife to the best husband in the world. My husband and I have been together since we were in high school. We've had our ups and downs, but we have always found a way to over come the struggles together and come out stronger than ever before. My oldest son just turned 10 and has taken to asking people to call him JJ. Never mind the fact that he doesn't have a single j in his first, middle, or last name. Dom is an avid sports enthusiast. He specifically loves biking, swimming, and basketball. My second son is the ham of the bunch. Sometimes Markus says things that cause Sean and I to have to leave the room so we can lau…
