2017 PARENTING Super Bundle Review – I kind of like this one :)

When I first saw that there was going to be a “Parenting” Super Bundle, I was kind of lie ‘eh’. I’m not especially fond of being reminded of all the things I should improve on as a parent, ha ha. When it was announced what would be in the bundle, I also wasn’t particularly impressed by the bonuses (which are usually my favorite part). And then, there was a whole “Faith” section (which is my biggest hangup of the Homemaking bundle, as it isn’t necessarily a good fit for everyone).  So overall, I wasn’t sure what to do.

BUT. Then the thought of the bundle rolled itself around in my mind. And I google searched some of the resources and decided I wanted them. And there was a Homeschool section–something that I’m actually currently looking for resources on. And…I figured what the heck. I could do another bundle review to make me feel like it was worth it. So I bought it.

How to Enjoy Las Vegas With Young Kids In Tow

We just got back from a quick 2-night stay in Las Vegas. Yes, with our two young kids. Yes, and while I’m pregnant.

Though Vegas might not initially seem the prime vacation spot in our given situation, it ended up being a perfect trip for us. And it could be for you too – just because you have young kids (or don’t or can’t drink) it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a Vegas Vacation and I’m here to show you how you can do it too!

Why Would Anyone Want To Have Kids? Here’s Why I Did.

As you may know, I’m currently pregnant with my third child. And oddly, I find myself questioning my motive for this pregnancy much more than I did with either of my first two children. I’ve been stumbling into articles about “why have kids?” or about the anti-natalism or childfree movements – and it seems there’s a lot of belief out there that parenthood, and especially motherhood, not only holds one back from a more ‘significant’ and ‘productive’ potential, but also leaves a person in denial of their regret over the loss of that once-childfree-potential. Instead, parenthood is consumed by the mind-numbing-ness of dirty diapers, tantruming toddlers, never-ending carpools, bratty preteens, and rebellious teenagers…when you know, they could actually be doing something meaningful with their lives otherwise. Many use this as a reason to remain childfree, a choice that they believe will allow them to lead better, happier, more fulfilling lives than if they had chosen to reproduce.

Peck Family 2016 Christmas Vegas Vacation

If you know me, you probably think I’m one of the last people ever to enjoy Las Vegas. I mean, I like eating and drinking and hanging out by the pool and all that – but I’m not really a huge fan of crowds and loud music and the party scene. However, for some reason, I really like Las Vegas. In small doses of course.

Having kids has changed the way we’re able to do Vegas, but that hasn’t stopped us from making the 4-5 hour trip out there from L.A. I went once when pregnant with my daughter, once when she was a baby, once when my son was a baby, and now we just went again this week with both kids AND with being pregnant.
