Back-to-School Stress Busters for Parents

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Jul 30, 2014 in Milestones, Parenting

For many children in Baton Rouge, August 11 marks the first day of school. While you may be looking forward to having the kids out of the house and back to a structured routine, there’s a lot to do before that first day.

As families get ready for school, parents can be overwhelmed by the pressure that comes from getting school supplies, buying new clothes and making plans, as well as the daily work and household responsibilities. But back to school doesn’t have to mean back to the crazy life.

My Moisturizing Detox Bath

Posted by: Rachel Henry on Jul 29, 2014 in Babies, Breastfeeding, health, Parenting

Rewind to four years ago…pre-kids…one of my favorite ways to relax and rejuvenate was a nice, long, hot, detox bath. Every Sunday evening, like clockwork, I would start my detox process with some light stretching to soothing music while my garden tub filled with steamy goodness. I would take in the amazing scents of lavender for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, uninterrupted, letting my muscles recharge, my skin rejuvenate, and my mind relax. I had it down to a science with the perfect mixture of Epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils. It was amazing.

Now…fast forward to today…

So Many Firsts

Posted by: Stephanie Roussell on Jul 24, 2014 in Babies, Family Fun, Milestones

It feels cliché to say, but I’m having so much fun experiencing all of Audrey’s firsts. First babbles, first swims, first foods, first holidays. It all seems so new and exciting to her, which makes it new and exciting for us. I told you last time about her first “Mama”, but there’s so much more she’s doing now! First time in the big tub, first time taking a step, first time eating meat, all sorts of things.

Why Can’t School Be All Year Long?

Posted by: Brandie Chesney on Jul 23, 2014 in Parenting, Toddlers

I don’t know how to make it stop.

I beg and use time outs like they are going out of style on a daily basis. This mother of four has hit a hurdle.

My twins, 6.5-year-olds, not only fight with each other constantly but fight with the littles, too. Fight, wine, bicker, push, bite and “NOT FAIR!” being yelled are the sounds of my lovely homestead. Don’t lie, I know you are jealous.

What to Say and What not to Say to This Mommy

Posted by: Tamara Palmer on Jul 22, 2014 in Parenting, Toddlers

Recently I read a blog on scarymommy.com titled “13 Things Non-Parents Should Never say to Parents”.

Before I was a mommy to my wonderful little 18-month-old boy, I always used to look on at other parents and think, “What would I do differently?” Or I would make a comment like, “When my child is that age, I will never let he/she do that.”

Car Seat? Check! Diapers? Check! Health Insurance? Uhhh….

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Jul 09, 2014 in Babies, Parenting, Pregnancy

babyWith everything going on toward the end of your pregnancy, it’s easy to miss a step or two when preparing for your little one’s arrival. While insurance headaches are common these days, there’s a way to add a new baby to your health insurance without going through insurance pains.

It would seem obvious that your insurance company would know to add your little one to your coverage when he or she is born. Surely it’s noticed the visits to your OB doctor and hospital bills for the past nine months, right?
