Budget Friendly Family Time

Budget Friendly Family Time
My favorite time of the day, next to having my morning coffee, is when my husband, son, and I are all home together and just hanging out together. We enjoy playing, being goofy, watching a movie, reading books, or just sitting together having, what we call, “quiet time”.

Older Mommy Friends

Older Mommy Friends
I was nearing forty years old when I became a mom. All of my friends had kids when we said we would, in our 20’s to early 30’s, and have preteens and teenagers now. Mine? He’s two, almost three. Not the age a preteen or teenager wants to be around usually, at least most preteen and teenagers don’t. Obviously, making mom friends my own age is tough.
