Choosing a name for your child is one of the most pivotal decisions of parenting. Before you even meet your precious babe, or perhaps shortly after your first earth side encounter, you’re tasked with deciding on a name they will carry (and hopefully love) for life.
A quick Google search of baby names will produce thousands of options, along with a plethora of suggested guidelines.
Will your child be named after a family member?
Are you looking for something classic, trendy or hipster?
How popular is the name you like?
What’s the meaning and origin of the name?
What are the options for nicknames?
Does it flow with your last name?
How will you spell it?
Will the pronunciation be difficult for your child or others?
And the list goes on and on and and on!!!
These are some of the things my husband and I took into consideration when naming our girls, including our youngest, Evangeline Margaret.

My middle child has been needing some extra attention lately. It’s been quite the transition for her with big sissy back in school and a new baby constantly in my arms, so I’ve been intentional with giving her special jobs and making sure she feels included.
During a recent trip to Family Dollar she helped me make every decision as we stocked up on Halloween goodies. Because the prices are so affordable I even felt comfortable giving her the liberty to make some choices on her own, and I watched as her confidence shot through the roof!
She was happy knowing she assisted me, and with Smart Coupons (Family Dollar’s saving program), I was happy knowing that the savings were adding up too!

The other day my 6 year old told me how excited she is for October. I know it’s because she can’t wait to dress up and collect as much candy as she can at the end of the month, and you know what? I don’t blame her! While she’s waiting in great anticipation for that one special night of tricks and treats, I’m excited for the daily chance to win a different prize with McDonald’s newest game, Trick. Treat. Win!
NursElet® provided me with these nursing essentials, but all opinions are honest and my own.
As I prepared for the arrival of our dear Evie, I knew that I wanted to breastfeed. I consider myself fortunate to be able to do so with my third child, and it’s something I don’t take lightly.
Knowing that it had been a couple years, I began to refresh my knowledge and look into some must-haves for this time around. I had the pleasure of learning about this amazing company called NursElet®that designs many wonderful products with the nursing mama in mind!
