Mommy Time Out

Hi! I'm Angela Hickman and I'm a Milton mom to a beautiful girl and handsome boy! Yep I have the "Million Dollar" family:) I love being a mom and my wish is to one day be a stay at home mom. It's tough being a full time employee, mom to highly energetic kids and wife to a wonderful husband. There isn't much time for a Mommy Time Out but I always try to find a little time. I love to shop and find new things that help make life easier and sometimes even more fun. My blog is all about the joys and frustrations of being a mom and hopefully helping other parents find products that will help make their life easier.

Dealing with Terrible Twos

Terrible two's are not a fun part of raising children. My little man who used to be the sweetest, kindest little boy has suddenly turned into this little monster.  It is hard to tell when the switch will go off and it can get a little frustrating. He has delayed speech and a lot of the temper comes from not being able to communicate with us. We have him in speech therapy which is helping but my issue isn't with that. It's with the not being...

How Important is Valentine’s Day?

So Valentine's Day is around the corner and it has me thinking what is it really about? Before we got married and had our kids we would go out for a romantic dinner, I would usually get a nice bouquet a flowers and I would get hubby a card and little gift like cologne. It wasn't a lot, but it was a nice reminder of our love. Then we got married and a few months later I got pregnant. For the Valentine's day that fell in that year, we had a...

I love Halloween

I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Is that clear enough? LOL. I love seeing all the kids dress up and admit I too enjoy it. It is nice to escape from the real world for a little bit and dress up as something I would like to be or a character I enjoy. I also admit to loving all the candy! Yes I am a candy fanatic and now that I have children, I confess to stealing theirs. After all, I wouldn't want them to ruin their teeth at such a young age;) A few years...

Prepare your little one for the first day of school

It’s hard to believe it is back to school season already. For some of our “Big Kids” it is going to their first day of school. The first day of school brings mixed emotions to all parents. For those with children starting for the first time, it is happiness mixed with nervousness. “Will my kids be okay without me?” “Will they be able to make new friends?” “Will they like their teacher?” “Have I done enough to prepare them for...

When will I ever sleep again?

I am running out of ideas. My son just does not want to sleep at night. I have tried letting him cry it out, rocking him to sleep and even bought him a new mattress. I am a walking zombie. I have read all the articles I can find on this but nothing seems to work. He isn't teething and doesn't have gas, so I don't think he's in pain. The only thing I can think is that it is separation anxiety. He seems to be fine when I am sitting with him in...

Thanks Mom!

Being a mom has been the most rewarding job I have ever had. I love my kids with all my heart and even though it’s not always a happy go lucky job, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Being a mom has made me think a lot about my relationship with my own mom. Growing up I spent a lot of time disagreeing with my parents. I didn’t like that I couldn’t go outside and play whenever I wanted to and what do you mean I have to clean my own...

The art of disciplining (no I haven’t figured it out yet)

Raising kids is hard; there I said it, I bet you didn’t know that. Okay, maybe you did but it is something I have to say out loud sometimes to remind myself that I am not a bad mom. I have to remember that everything my kids do is not always a reflection of how I parent them. It’s what I do in response that is important. Lately, my little miss has been pushing ALL of my buttons. She is trying to see what she can get away with and, to be...

Moms are allowed to have fun too!

I have the best job in the world. No, it's not the one that gives me a weekly paycheck. In fact I don't make any money at all for this job. It's being a mom. I have two awesome kids and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. I get paid in hugs and kisses and love every minute of it. However, I do need to take a break every once in awhile. I cherish my "ME" time as much as I cherish the time I spend with my kids. I recognize that I am a...

The Joy of Giving

The holidays are here and many families have different traditions they partake in. We celebrate Christmas Eve with hubby’s family and then Christmas Day with my family. There is a lot of good food and plenty of presents to open. We even have Santa come by Christmas Eve to hand out everyone’s presents to them. This year will be that much more special since Christmas Eve is also Gian-Michael’s birthday. A few years ago when Bella was two,...

How early is too early?

So Halloween is around the corner and I for one am very excited. Halloween has always been one of my favorite days. I loved dressing up as a kid, even though the costumes back then were nothing like what you can get now. Do you remember the plastic outfits and masks you can barely see out of? And of course I LOVE candy and I will admit to “stealing” some of my daughter’s candy…well I wouldn’t want her to get cavities!! LOL I have...

Back To School Season Has Arrived!

It’s that time of year again! Millions of moms are doing a happy dance because next week brings the first week of school. Then there are the ones who are sending their children off for the first time and don’t really know how to feel. I am among those mothers. On one hand I am so excited to get a little break and be able to spend some uninterrupted time with my eight month old. Maybe I’ll actually be able to take him to some mommy and me...

Breastfeeding Tips

Breastfeeding is something women have been doing for centuries but it isn‘t always easy. I was very nervous about breastfeeding because everyone I knew who had kids bottle fed their kids either by choice or because breastfeeding didn’t work for them. I didn’t have anyone to turn to if I needed advice. The following tips are some of the things that make breastfeeding work for me. I breastfed my daughter for 13 months and I am currently...
