I’m a mama of 7 children and have found that having a baby monitor is crucial to my sanity!  I bet you get that, right?  :)

The other day, I found myself doing the dishes.  The baby was happily playing in the exersaucer like this:

Snuza Video Baby Monitor Review

She’s 7 months old now, isn’t she cute?  :)

I knew that she’d remain happy there, but if she happened to spot me, she’d get all grumpy.  Yep, she’s a mama’s girls and loves for me to hold her and nurse her as much as possible.  To put it plainly, I needed to leave her in the living room where she was happily playing while I was in the kitchen.

The problem is, I have an ornery little 3 year old boy.  Need I say more?  He would like to pick on that baby.  Imagine that, right?  I was able to use my amazing Snuza Video Baby Monitor to keep an eye on the situation.

 I even spotted said 3 year old, standing there with a big stick in his hand.  I don’t think he was planning to beat the baby with it, but a mama can never be sure what a 3 year old little boy will do, so I was able to get that out of his hand really quickly once I spotted it on the montior.  What he was really doing, most of the time, was playing with her and entertaining her…but….this mom can never completely trust him alone with her baby.  That’s why I’m so thankful to have my Snuza Video Baby Monitor.

Up Close of Monitor

Snuza Video Baby Monitor is a 3-in-1 monitoring solution – Audio, Visual, Movement – keeps baby covered from every angle!

The Snuza Video Baby Monitor is amazing.  I really do love it.  It has several awesome features, that I know you’ll love as well!

  • Portable Baby Movement Monitor – it literally sets off an alarm if baby’s movement stops.  It is a mobile, easy-to-use movement monitor that clips onto your baby’s diaper and ensures that normal movement is maintained. With its ultra-sensitive flexible tip, the slightest of movements are detected and if no movement is detected for a period of 20 seconds, the Snuza Go! emits an audible alarm. Parents can reduce the timer from 20-seconds to 18 or 15 and the Snuza Go! also alerts you when your baby’s movements are very week or fall to less than 8 movements per minute.  - I know I’m always nervous about the baby stopping breathing when they’re really little.  I think it’s a common problem among moms.  This will give us moms (who sometimes feel crazy), some serious peace of mind!  Have you ever popped up in the middle of the night, realizing your baby has not woken up as soon as they normally do?  Yep….me too!
  • Two-way communication.  You can talk back to your baby and let her know that you’re on your way.
  • Room Temperature Display
  • Voice Activated Sound monitoring
  • 3.5″ color screen
  • Remote Control Camera
  • Ability to have up to 4 cameras connected to the same monitor, so you don’t have to move your cameras around.
  • The monitor can be portable, battery powered or can be plugged in.
  • Makes an amazing gift!


I know I wish I would’ve had this monitor with my first 6 children.  It should be on most every mom’s wish list!  Would you like a chance to win one?  Get entered right here!

Sometimes Things Go a Little Haywire

all things work together for good


I realize it’s only October and the year isn’t even over yet, but can I tell you something?  This year has been one of the hardest years of my life!  Seriously.  It’s been rough!  Let me tell you about it….

January – 5 day hospital stay with my daughter who has epilepsy.  They had to do a video EEG, so they could study the type of seizures she has, hopefully helping to get her seizure auras under control.  It seems like we have now, thankfully!


FebruaryEnd of pregnancy woes, like gestational diabetes and praying for no C-section!


MarchBaby #7 born on 3/13.  She’s been a joy, but definitely a difficult, fussy baby.


AprilWhooping cough hits our family.  Let me tell you, they call it the 100 day cough for a reason!  Puke bowls abound, as any time someone coughs, they throw up, multiple times a day for many days straight!


May – Extra fussy baby, can’t get anything done.


June – A trip to San Diego for baby and I, to a blogging conference…this was definitely a highlight!


July - Child #2 had to have another ear surgery (mastoidectomy) because the cyst they had orignally removed that had originally paralyzed half of her face, was growing back.  This was her 4th surgery on this ear.  On the 27th of July, Child #4 was admitted to the hospital with asthma struggles.  She ended up being transferred to a children’s hospital and treated in the PICU for 7 days of the 9 day hospital stay.


August – Daughter released from hospital, but now struggling with anxiety due to the hospital stay (and possibly the steroids they sent her home on).  We’re still trying to resolve the anxiety issues.


September – School starts.  We homeschool, so this is a big deal for us!  I was thankful to have a bit more structure to our days!  We even took a break and went on a fun vacation to Branson that I’ll be telling you more about soon.


October – Our marriage is struggling.  We are committed to finding happiness and peace and growing our love for each other, but it’s been a tough process.  In fact, this is why I’ve been a little bit scarce in writing here on the blog.  I had started the 52 week Organized Home Challenge and suddenly paused it while I got my feet back under me.  I’m hoping to start it back up this week, but my life has been a roller coaster ride!


I said all of that to say this.


I get it.


I know life is hard.


When you’re feeling all alone and like nobody else could ever understand where you’re at.  It’s OK.  Take a deep breath and let God give you a hug.  He cares for you no matter what!  He loves you, even when you don’t feel very lovable.  He is a Friend to the friendless and a Father to the fatherless!


Romans 8:28(KJV)

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.


Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)

13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.



It can be easy to let everything go.  (I know, I’ve been doing it….you should see the condition of my house!!).  But, it’s important when things are hard, that you give yourself a little slack.  Don’t expect perfection.  Just rest.  Rest in God’s love.  Rest in His peace.  Put your trust in Him and you will be OK.  For He will never give you more than you can bear!
