Although I enjoy cooking, I’m lucky to have a husband who is the primary cook in our family – plus, he’s ten times better than I am anyway. However, cooking breakfast food, my favorite meal of all time, is my forte. My husband is out of town, so what better way to honor the fall season and my love for breakfast than to make pumpkin pancakes for dinner?
This recipe for simple fluffy pumpkin pancakes is not only easy and delicious but can be customized in a variety of ways with condiments, sides, or add-ins to meet your taste. They’re extremely filling, so they work well for dinner, and you can throw them in the waffle iron for a yummy crunchy waffle instead.
I ate these for dinner last night with turkey sausage, and after a rough night with my daughter, I decided to put a sinful spin on my breakfast and added a smear of Nutella to start the day off right. Hey, I balanced it with a side of pineapple – that counts for something, right?
Sniffles. Runny nose. Sad little barking cough. Stuffed up tiny noses with congestion. When your baby or child has a cold, your heart will break for them. As a parent, all you want to do is take pain and discomfort away from your little ones, but with a cold, you cannot simply give your child medicine and make them feel better.
Do not give your baby or toddler cough or cold medicine; it has not been proven effective in treating the symptoms of the common cold, and in fact, can be fatal.
Oh, pregnancy, how I loved you. You turned me into a girl who vowed to never be pregnant and only have children through a surrogate (thanks, sis for volunteering at the time) into a momma who is ready for round two! You may know that I didn’t have the easiest pregnancy, but it was the most incredible, beautiful stage of my life. I’ve never felt more special or important as I grew my little poppy seed into garbanzo bean, clementine, mango, and eventually watermelon (is anyone else hungry now?).
I’m 7.5 months post-partum and no, I am not living in a blissful after period with blinders on. Trust me, I still remember the daily and nightly agonies I endured, and even with that, my statement stands.
Trying to come up with only 9 tips for 9 months proved very difficult, but I did my best to come up with 9 of the top tips I have for your pregnancy. More posts to come on this topic though, don’t you worry! I’ve included some of my favorite pregnancy moments, and if you have any questions you would like me to address in the future, leave a comment below.
