Caring For Your Home

When it comes to cleaning and caring for your home it can be an exhausting, full time task, especially if you’re a single parent like me, who doesn't really have much help in that area. I'm pretty good at staying on top of day-to-day chores like laundry, dishes, bathrooms, etc., but I don't deep clean as much as I'd like. I'd love to have my entire house deep cleaned once or twice a month, but as a single parent time doesn't always allow.

I'm a big germ freak, I enjoy having a clean home and as a single parent my children depend on me to take on all of the household chores. From laundry to dusting, I do it all, even the dirtiest of jobs like scrubbing the bathroom! Cleaning your bathroom and keeping it clean is much easier than you think! I've learned a few tips and tricks over the years, and now I can have our bathroom from gross to sparkly clean in less than 30 minutes! That means I'm spending less time cleaning and more time playing with my children and I know every mom wants that! 

While picking up some after school snacks at my local Krogers, I remembered I needed some things from the cleaning isle! I easily located the New Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber and New Scotch-Brite® Disposable Scrubber Refills and couldn't wait to get home and put them to work on my toilets!

On The Go with Nestlé

The summer heat is far from being over but that won't stop the ringing of back to school bells! With the first day of school just a few weeks away, our schedule is about to get a whole lot busier! This year both of my children will be in school full time, my daughter is off to kindergarten and my son will be starting 5th grade - man how time flies!

Trying to balance school, work and life in general is a lot when your a single mom, we spend a lot of time in the truck, we are always on the go! I don't mind managing it all, but more often than not I find myself eating or feeding my little family on the go, my children mean everything to me and I love when they ask for their favorite foods at the grocery store. However, sometimes I need fast, easy, and convenient food options that taste good and are available when and where I need them. As a mom it's important that anything I provide for my family is something everyone will love and that's why I fell in love with Nestlé!

Struggling With Change


School is right around the corner and I'm not sure if we are ready. The back to school schedule is great for our routine and structure but I'm not sure I'm ready for my children to start at a new school. We changed over the summer, made the move from what was probably our favorite school with the most amazing teachers ever to a new school. It broke my heart to leave our school, the school we fell in love with, the teachers that poured their heart and soul into Big Brother C and where he absolutely loved going. The therapists, teachers and classmates opened up their hearts to us and they all quickly felt more like family than friends.

On August 22nd, the three of us will step foot into a new school, an entire building of new faces, new sounds, new classrooms filled with new teachers, new friends, new therapists, new schedules, new surroundings - it's a lot to take in. It can be overwhelming, so much change at once, my big guy doesn't do well with drastic change, he's not a fan of his routine changing - at all. My heart sinks into my stomach about the thought of him walking around this new school with new teachers and feeling lost or sad. Big Brother C can't always communicate what he wants, or how he's feeling and he can't tell me at the end of a school day how his day went - just a few of the many joys of Autism.
