Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

“Faithful friends who are dear to us,

Gather near to us once more.

Through the years we all will be together,

If the Fates allow.

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough,

And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.”

Be Brave Little One Baby Boy Sprinkle

I have been crazy, stupid excited over the arrival of Little Brother N. Now that he’s here safe and sound, I’m thrilled to share the way we celebrated him, and honored Kerstin’s second pregnancy, over the summer.

Mommy Juice: Casper’s Margarita Tour & What Does Being a Mom Mean to You?

This is a special week at Jelly Bean Journals. Two of our series are meeting up! For the month of September, we are sharing a special series in collaboration with Prairie Wife in Heels and The Tall Mom. We have been writing for each other on a topic relevant to our regular content. Here’s what you can find during the month of September:

Here at Jelly Bean Journals, being a mom means honoring our very purpose as a blog by celebrating all things sweet and sour about mommyhood. We openly and honestly talk about the good, bad, beautiful, and challenging things we have experienced being mommies. Being a mom also means finding other moms to lean on for support, sisterhood, and fun! Thus, enter our ongoing Mommy Juice Series and a recent night out with 40 awesome moms!

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers!

Jelly Bean Journals Coffee Talk: Potty Training Vlog

Well, friends, it’s official. We have put out our very first vlog. You will notice that Chelse is pregnant in this project and that is because this little clip was filmed a year ago! It has taken some courage, processing, and plenty of editing time to prepare this video. Writing and posting pictures is one thing, but the act of looking at and listening to ourselves has pushed our boundaries. We weren’t even sure that this vlog would ever make it to you, but we decided to practice what we preach and live in the moment. Hey, there’s no place to go but up from here! (This is where we ask for your love and acceptance of our amateur vlogging skills!) If nothing else, we hope you can share in our friendship and giggle a little with us.

Picking the subject of our first vlog was much easier than pressing the “share with everybody” button. We struggled through the process of potty training Kiddo A and N around the same time and our stories are intertwined. We decided to tell those tales together and share some ideas for other parents working on potty training. We didn’t want to be another of those self proclaimed “potty training miracle” videos, so we intentionally shared the things we each tried in a conversation style clip. We hope that providing a little encouragement and maybe a new idea or two with others working to get their toddler to do their business without soiled undies will be just the ticket. Enjoy and be sure to share your tips and tricks with others in the comments.

From the Mouths of Mommas – #6

In this series we ask multiple mommas one question. The answers show the love, joy and struggles we experience each day, week, month, year or lifetime. Although the answers may vary, it’s clear we are working toward the same results: healthy, happy and loved children! 

If your children learn only one thing from you, what would you want it to be and why?
