I absolutely love this Mom!! Her medical kits are awesome. They are the the perfect kits for mom with kids on the go. Her sports kit is great for any sport of any age! I just love that I don’t have to think about it…I just keep it in the car and it for any minor emergency.

Best kit out there

I spent months trying to buy everything that a medical kit “should” have and yet when I found this kit I realized it was all there in this small bag that someone else had done all the work for me. This is perfect to keep along in my car for emergencies. I love this and can’t wait to get them for my friends who are pregnant.

As a civilian Registered Nurse and an Army Nurse Corps veteran, I am pretty particular about what supplies I’ll use on my family when someone needs first aid. This Sports First Aid Kit by PreparaKit is, hands down, the best first aid kit I’ve ever seen. It has name brand supplies in good quantities and is organized in a logical fashion. It’s portable, lightweight and comes in a cute and durable case. Thank you for this great product!

Practical Steps for Creating Realistic Routines

We know that helping our kids develop realistic routines and good habits is high priority. But, knowing we should and actually setting a system in place are two completely different things.  We want our kids to learn responsibility and accountability so that they can...

Now of course this isn't the intended use for a headrest but when you're in a bind, you use whatever you can get your hands on right?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My firefighter hubby told me this awhile back and I was like, "Really?"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In disbelief, I went to our handy dandy Mr. Google and saw a bunch of videos of people actually using the ends of the headrest to break the windows!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So I guess it can work!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Now if you really want to be on the safe side and be extra prepared, there are tons of tools specifically designed to break windows that you can find on Amazon.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I would have never even thought to use the head rest to break anything but now that it's in the back of my mind, it's something I will remember for sure.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Just curious, was this something you already knew?

Warning...vulnerable moment ahead.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
2.5 years ago I decided to officially leave my nursing job to embark upon a new journey where I can be more available for my kids as well as to explore a new chapter in my life.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It was scary to leave a stable career that I have only ever known for the past 16 years but I knew I was meant for something different in my life now.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Let me tell you something, being an entrepreneur is HARD. I thought going through nursing school and digging ourselves out of $120K in debt was hard. (I mean it definitely was hard to do those things don't get me wrong). ⁠⠀
But this is even harder!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The other day, I literally had an emotional breakdown because I was so tired and overwhelmed. We're talking tears, feelings of frustration and defeat and just wanted to be away from everyone.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I even got rained on while I was taking a walk but decided to take my time going home just so that I can try to work through my feelings.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Thinking back, I was feeling a lot like this image where I can see where I want to go but felt inside like I'll never be able to make it to the top.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever set a goal for yourself and it was so overwhelming that you were doubting yourself if you could even do it?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Today, my mind is A LOT more clear. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The mantra that I keep telling myself is this:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nothing worth fighting for is ever easy. Becoming a nurse was not easy. Becoming debt free was not easy. But I kept my eye on the prize and I did it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So here I am, continuing to fight for my dreams and goals. Continuing to step outside of my comfort zone and do all the hard and uncomfortable things...like writing and sharing this post.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What dreams and goals do you have for your life that you want to fight for?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What's one step you can take today to get one step closer to it?

Do you want to know a super simple way to do this without any additional effort?⠀

All these lessons can be taught to our kids just by us role modeling it for them.⠀

For example, the next time you’re contemplating whether or not to buy something, talk through it out loud so your kids can hear you question whether or not it’s something you really need or just something you want. ⠀

In either case, let them understand your thought process in coming to that decision so when it’s their turn, they can do the same for themselves.⠀

Another thing you can do is decide on a vacation or trip together as a family and save up for it. ⠀

Show them that it’s nice to go on trips but it’s something that has to be saved up for first. It’s not worth the short term fun for more long term debt payments.⠀

And most importantly, talking about money earlier on and being open about it with our kids will empower them to be in control of it and not allow money to control their life.⠀

That is my hope at least and why I continue to teach and emphasize these lessons on a regular basis, so that I can save them from experiencing the mistakes we made earlier on in our lives.⠀

What’s one money lesson you wish you had learned growing up?
