Meet our crew!
Hi! I am Cheryl. I am all things emotional/warm-fuzzy (I am a Professional Therapist) in a house full of I boys! I don’t like to replace batteries on anything and prefer everything to have a monogram! I love sticky notes and paper planners, giving gifts, and lamp-lighting. I love working with families to encourage them to DITCH the dread in Parenting and instead have lots of FUN…while maintain a sense of peace and purpose in the home!
My husband really is the Captain of our Crew! He can literally fix anything and is pretty much good at everything. He is Mr. Technology and if it were up to him our entire house would be automated. He is logical and methodical, loves spreadsheets and sci fi, and balances out my emotional self….most of the time.
Between these three, they own 143892000283 legos and nerf guns. They love all things military and adventure and they have a countdown to Christmas going at all times. They can’t get enough to eat on most days and make us laugh on all days. They are..our greatest miracles. They are…the reason we write and hope to inspire other families to do “family life” just a little different.
From parenting wisdom to free-time ideas, we will do our best to share resources, stories and life hacks for families. Here are some of our most recent posts
