PediaSwim #MomBuzz #PoolTime #Baby @pedia_swim

I recently heard about a program called PediaSwim. PediaSwim is a program that teaches individuals to be infant and toddler swimming instructors. I had no idea there was a program like this! PediaSwim instructors are able to teach children a swim – float- swim technique for fun and safety. PediaSwim Instructors are trained and certified by Joy McGinty at SouthWest Aquatics in Florida.

Infant Swimming Instructor Certification takes place over the course of four weeks/five days per week. The Infant, Baby and Toddler Swimming Instructor Training Course is a comprehensive course, that trains you to work with children from ages six months to three years. I love that PediaSwim trains you one on one. …

G is for Grandmas – Blogging from A to Z

G is for Grandmas – Blogging from A to Z

G is for Grandmas! My Grandma Ginny has always been there for me. Ever since I was little, I would spend all the time I could with her and my Pappy Art. I moved in with her when I was 14 to help her take care of my grandfather, and so I could be close enough to walk to school activities. My grandfather passed away when I was 15, and I still miss him every day. I wish he could have met my children! He would have loved them.

Grandma Ginny may be a little thing (she comes in at under 5′ tall :)) but what she lacks in height, she makes up for in spunk. She is always …

F is for Failure – Blogging from A to Z

F is for Failure – Blogging from A to Z

F is for Failure

We have all had things we have failed at. Maybe we didn’t succeed at something new we tried to do, maybe we weren’t chosen as the ‘winner’ at something, maybe we didn’t get the promotion we wanted. Every failure is a lesson. I think it’s important to learn from the things we don’t succeed at – sometimes, those are the strongest lessons.

I also think it’s important to teach our kids about failure. It seems like a lot of things are in place to shield our kids from being singled out, to learn how to lose at something – which ultimately makes them better at winning. Everyone on the team gets a trophy now for participation. I …

E is for Exercise – Blogging from A to Z

E is for Exercise – Blogging from A to Z


E is for Exercise! There are many times I just don’t feel like going to the gym or working out. Even though I know I always feel better after I do. The hardest part is putting on your shoes and getting there. I am not a fitness buff or a thin person. I want to be healthier and exercise is an essential part of that. I feel so accomplished after I’ve worked out! I joined the new Planet Fitness gym that opened up locally and I am so glad that I did. You can’t beat the prices for membership and the atmosphere is great. I have never felt out of place or like I don’t belong there.

Do you …

D is for Decorating Eggs – Blogging from A to Z

D is for Decorating Eggs – Blogging from A to Z

D is for Decorating Eggs in today’s Blogging from A to Z challenge post. I readily admit that, for some reason, I simply cannot hard-boil eggs. Every year I try, and every year in the past it has not worked out. A couple of years ago, I started baking my eggs to hard-boil them. Oh, this has been a life saver. We finally can have hard “boiled” eggs for dying Easter eggs, and for eating afterward. Do you bake your eggs to hard boil them? I definitely recommend it. Super easy and just about fool-proof. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not usually a fan of dying eggs. Normally, at least one color of dye gets spilled all over the kitchen and someone ends …

B is for Books – A to Z Challenge

B is for Books – A to Z Challenge

In today’s post for the A to Z Challenge, B is for Books! For as long as I can remember, books have been a big part of my life. I’ve always carried at least one book with me. When I wasn’t allowed to read, like at the dinner table when I was younger, I would find myself reading anything within sight. I would read the ingredients on the ketchup bottle. I just always had to be reading! When my mom told me to go outside and play, I would take a blanket outside in the grass and read while I basked in the summer sun.

Books are my constant companion, in many forms. I always have my phone with me, …

A is for Accountability – Blogging from A to Z

A is for Accountability – Blogging from A to Z

Hi everyone! Welcome to day one of the Blogging from A to Z challenge for April 2015. April 1st starts us out with letter A. My letter A is for Accountability. I’m wanting to run in 5k races this year. I’ve never been a runner in my life, so this is something new for me. My first 5k I’m hoping to run in takes place in June and is a race benefiting a local school for kids with autism. I’m doing the couch to 5k running program and I hit the gym last night to start working on it. I’m holding myself accountable by throwing it out here for everyone to know and making sure I consistently hit the …

Spring Bloggiesta – Goals – 3/23-3/29/15 #Bloggiesta

Spring Bloggiesta – Goals – 3/23-3/29/15 #Bloggiesta

Spring is here, at least according to the calendar. I’ve got my fingers crossed that the snow is done and we have beautiful spring days ahead. We’ve had a few sunny days in Ohio, but I’m greedy and I want more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ With the arrival of spring is the first ever week-long Spring Bloggiesta! This is a busy week for me. I work 4 days, my daughter has track practice every day and her first meet on Saturday, and I need to finish up my taxes. But I’m still going to try to get some blog work in as well. I’m hoping to do at least some of the following:

Create a new blog header.
Update blog color scheme with new …
