Our New Dentist | Dental Reflections Dublin | 614 Mom

With all of the different schedules, I decided that I wanted to try and keep it simple by finding doctors who can see my entire family.  It makes life easier when we can schedule a few hours at one place instead of driving to multiple places to get the same thing done.

A few weeks ago I switched my family to a new Dentist and I’m really happy that I did.  Dental Reflections Dublin  is only 10-15 minutes from our house, they see kids and adults so I can take my entire family, and they are able to help me get back to back appointments so I only have to go once

Our Second Little One Gone Too Soon | Mama Monday | 614 Mom

When that second call came, the levels had dropped even more, and they were confirming my worse nightmare, I was having a miscarriage. I was devastated. The days following were filled with so many tears and so much pain. We were beyond sad, beyond hurt and beyond shocked. I would have never imagined after going through a healthy pregnancy with my daughter that I would miscarry with my second pregnancy.

The Reality of Motherhood While Legally Blind | Mama Monday | 614 Mom

Hello! I am local Columbus mom and teacher. I have two girls; Mae-5 years old and Grace—almost 2 years old. I am like many moms around here, I love to experience Columbus with my kids, husband, and friends. However, I do experience things a bit differently than all of you. I am legally blind with 20 degrees of vision left, while most of you have 180 degrees. It sometimes called, “tunnel vision”. I am unable to see the ground as I walk, therefore I use a mobility cane (or white cane) to get around.

I remember hearing about Movers For Moms® a few years ago, at a local Touch-a-Truck event and I honestly thought it was a really cool slogan.

You are Stronger Than You Think | Mama Monday | Cbus Boy Momma

Their strength in all situations, no matter how big or small, had me thinking if I, too, could be strong and ask myself, "How strong could I really be?" I mean, I was strong when I had all three of my boys via c-section and when I was faced with little obstacles here and there. However, I never knew exactly how strong I was until I was faced with a situation that required me to be nothing but strong

5 Reasons I Love Life Time Fitness

My first experience with Lifetime Fitness was actually thanks to a friend of mine.  She had an extra guest pass so she invited me to take one of her favorite group fitness classes with her, TCX.  The class was wonderful and definitely made me sweat but what made me really fall in love with Lifetime were the people. It was very clear to me that what set this gym a part from many others was the connection everyone shared.
