For busy moms, staying healthy is key to a happy household. Adding omega-3 fatty acids could take your daily diet to a whole new level. Discover four reasons why you should start adding omega-3 fatty acids to your diet.
Mommy life is very busy and it’s easy for us moms to forget to take care of ourselves. I definitely spend most of my day helping my kids, cleaning up after them and training them to behave. My husband asked me why I can’t go downstairs until I’m fully ready for the day and I told him that once I’m in the kitchen, it’s very hard to get back upstairs for several hours. My 3 kids need assistance with virtually every task they do and I’m usually happy to help and clean up as we go. But sometimes the chaos of mommy life means I don’t prioritize taking care of myself.
Mommy Life comes with lots of laundry! I like using natural laundry products that are safe for my family and effective at removing stains left by messy kids. See what we thought of Molly’s Suds laundry products and try out our fun homemade fingerpaint activity for kids!
