Midwest Mom & Wife Child Care

In my previous post, I mentioned how I started my own business. Midwest Mom & Wife is no longer just a blog, but a business also! I have many hopes and goals for this business, and I have  started offering child care.

I have started accepting part-time and/or drop-in daycare and I am so excited!

  • Cloth diaper friendly
  • Love to plan activities, but also allow free play
  • Enjoy fun trips and activities in the Des Moines area
  • Knowledgable with breast milk and breastfeeding
  • Love to baby wear (it’s a life saver)
  • Natural minded

Everywhere you turn, in our home, we have something kid-friendly and fun to do!

Upstairs, we have our reading and art “nook”. I have an easel set-up, a small rocking chair, and a basket of books. There is no TV in this area, so it’s a nice place to come and focus on reading, writing, drawing, painting, etc.

The kitchen is where all the messiness happens! This little area is where I keep our paints, play dough, markers, glue, etc. Usually, when we have a particularly messy project, we set-up here.

Downstairs is our “living area”. Off this area, is the play room. The play room is LOADED with lots of toys, train table, an enormous amount of books, puzzles, etc.

Outside! I like to spend as much time outside as possible, because once winter sets in, we don’t get out very often. I have been very blessed with a LARGE backyard. There are two fun areas to our yard …

This is the “natural scape”. There are tree stumps to climb on, a large tire full of sand and sand toys, and a plastic pool that I fill up with water for fun activities.

This area is our swing set and plastic slide area. As you can see, the whole thing is not covered with gravel, yet, so it’s easy to ride around on the tons of trucks and 4-wheeler toys we have.

I have so much to offer for your little ones and am very flexible on days and times.

Also, look for the Child Care tab at the top of the page to keep track of what I am accepting and adding!

I’m Back!

I’m back!!

Where have I been for the past, ALMOST, year?!?

Growing this precious angel …

Yes, Amelia Don was born August 1st and since her conception and arrival, my world has been turned upside down (for the good)!

I had some serious morning sickness while pregnant with Amelia, that is why my blogging stopped. I had every intention to blog about my pregnancy and all the fun things I ate, activities I did, prepping for her arrival, etc. BUT growing this little girl took a lot out of me, especially with a 2 year old, BIG BROTHER running around!

Since this event happened I have quit my job (oh my gosh … scariest thing ever), started a business (also pretty scary), and decided to stay home with my  beautiful children (am I insane?!)

I am nervous about all of the above, but so excited about this new chapter in our lives. We have a wonderful support system, so I know everything will be okay!

Now that I am not “working” I hope to have more time to blog. I probably will not post near as frequently as before. I will be easing my way back into it.

I hope to share my journey staying at home with my two children, share information about my business, my health and fitness journey (body after baby two!), more events and activities to do in the Des Moines area and so much more!

I am so happy to be back!
