You can start teaching children how to memorize words between 6-8 months of age AFTER introducing the ABCs. As children are learning about letter names and letter sounds, it's important for them to see WHAT these letters are being used for. Also, I strongly advise against focusing on sight words and instead teach words that have MEANING! This blog has a TON of resources for teaching children to memorize words. #teachyourchildtoread #letkidsdiscoverreading #embracingmotherhood

For the past two years, I have been working on a reading program that has helped me to teach all of my children how to read easily and at a young age, and now it's finally done, it's here, and it's FREE for anyone to use!!! As a nation, we are failing our children. Only 36% of 4th graders are proficient in reading (2015 NAEP data) and the National Reading Panel (created to analyze how children learn to read) has not reconvened since 2000. Well, I figured out how children learn to read, and the answer doesn't lie with the schools, but with us as parents. Anyone, regardless of their background, can easily follow my program and teach their children how to read. So please, come learn with me! #teachyourchildtoread #freereadingprogram #teachyourchildtoreadbythree #embracingmotherhood

We love our outdoor play tent! It's a great spot for little ones to keep out of the elements and nap, and I love using it as a "holding tank" to keep things that I want to pull out and use in the grass. #backyardfun #infantoutdoors #outdoorplaytent #embracingmotherhood

This is one of the activities I have done with all of my children that have helped all of them to read at a very young age. All you need is markers and paper! #teachyourchildtoread #teachingreading #prereadingactivity #teachingtoddlers

I actually wrote this blog 2 years ago, but I have learned SO much more since having baby #5 that I had to completely rewrite it! Learning about tips and tricks to calm a fussy baby BEFORE your baby comes is really beneficial so that you can remain on the offensive rather than the defensive. I have a lot of preventative tips as well as many tricks for when you're deep in the thick of fussy baby time. #fussynewborn #colic #fussybaby #preventafussybaby #tipsforcalmingafussybaby

This is the first time I have completely eliminated coffee from day one, and I'm proud to say that I have never once had to be up in the night with Jack. When I learned that the half life of caffeine elimination in a newborn was 97.5 hours, it gave me a strong reason to not drink it, and boy am I glad I never did! #coffee #caffeine #breastfeeding

This has been a wonderful postpartum recovery! As I reflect back on my other postpartum recoveries, there were so many things that I was blindsided by and/or unaware of that I would like to share with others. Having this knowledge and these accessories has really made my recovery process peaceful. #postpartumrecovery
