(Re)Creating Memories at Walt Disney World

Full Disclosure – I am the person who rolls her eyes and clicks away every time the “You Only Have 18 Summers” memes make a resurgence. After all, I’m forty-one years old and I still vacation with my parents. I tend to think that preemptively panicking about my children growing up and moving away is some next…

Evolving Faith

I am sitting on the bathroom floor, next to the draining tub, wrapped in a heap of towels, refusing to move forward in the bedtime process and left alone to create my own inertia when I am good and ready. I stare at the enormous mirror covering the wall in front of me from floor…

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 Last month my husband and I visited Spain, first spending a couple days in a Mediterranean beach town, then one night in Barcelona followed by a couple days in Granada.

American Red Cross: Look for the Helpers

Earlier this month I visited the American Red Cross national headquarters in Washington, DC, just a quick Metro ride away from my home in the suburbs. My visit was part of an online influencer event, and to be completely honest, I didn’t know what to expect. Somewhere in my childhood bedroom is the CPR certification…

Where I Went and Where I’m Going

If you haven’t been to Resourceful Mommy for awhile, you may be utterly confused by my recent posts. Let me catch you up. I mostly stopped blogging back in January of 2014, except for moments like when I felt compelled to pop back in and tell you about my sweet Alison, write an open letter to teens about…

Why I Left

In the beginning, God created Twitter. And it was good. And the people of the Internet came together to share stories and ideas and skills and information. Websites were built and businesses created. Connections were made. Friendships were formed. Then people began tweeting to ask me for money to buy themselves new teeth, for help…

Creating a Life I Don’t Want to Leave

I have started and stopped writing this post more times than I can count, unsure of so many things, from questioning how it would be received, wondering if my site needed to be restructured before moving in this direction, and the biggest roadblock – deeming myself unworthy of adding my voice to the chorus of…

Doing Disney World Solo
I first visited Walt Disney World in 1981 at the tender - and clearly impressionable age - of three. We luaued, we Hoop-Dee-Dooed, and we rode It's a Small World more times than is probably healthy or appropriate for any small child. There were several more trips to the World sprinkled throughout my childhood, but...

I’m Back

After a year away from Resourceful Mommy, I’m back! I thought about writing some deeply reflective post examining why I left and explaining why I’m back, but quite honestly, the thought of writing that post exhausted me. If the post is too boring to write, it’s surely too boring to read. So instead, let me show…

Free and Frugal Holiday Gift Ideas for Kids

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is watching my kids’ faces light up as they find a much-coveted item under the Christmas tree. No, the season is not all about the gifts, but the excitement and joy on their faces is something that makes the holiday brighter. Some years, though, finances may…

20 Ways to Entertain Older Kids on a Sick Day

  I can distinctly remember the feeling of a sick day when I was a kid. You know – the real sick days where it was a struggle to get out of bed, but after laying there for a few hours, you were just SO bored. You wanted to get up and do something, but…

Teaching Kids About Different Cultures

In our house, as in most every home, holidays and traditions are an important part of who we are and the beliefs and experiences that created those traditions help to shape our view of the world. As a parent, I want my children to have an understanding of why these celebrations are so important to…
