where life, love and motherhood connect


What is this Kids Stuff World thing anyways?

Well for starters, it’s not “Kids Stuff” World!

It is so much more than that

Kids. Stuff. World. is my sounding board.

It’s the place where I chronicle my journey towards being a better person —Mother, Wife, Sister, Friend, Lady. It’s tales of life with three young kids, creating a happy home, a simple girl full of big dreams and best laid plans. It’s being mindful, trying to live in the moment, and more importantly trying to find like minded mothers (friends even), all while paying respects to our precious Mother Earth.

Simply put, it’s where I write about the little things, the BIG things and all the “stuff” in between.

About the Author:
Hi, I’m Stacy. Friends from back home call me StacyMae (I’m a Carolina Girl), a ton of folks still call me Sgt. (11.5 years in the USAF), but most of the folks I deal with these days just call me “Mom“. I had three children in four very short years and ended my military career just months before the birth of my youngest.


I’m super friendly, so don’t be shy, leave a comment or just say Hi. <- Apparently I’m some sort of poet as well. I try to answer as quickly as I can but if I don’t get back to you in a decent amount of time, don’t take it personally; I’m probably just wiping bottoms or cleaning up crumbs. Try again, or find me at one of the links below and I guarantee you I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

I’m all over the place!!

  • Hi Stacymae,
    My husband Tom and I make a custom kids book named Find Me If You Can. We use your child’s face and hide it on 32 big, colorful, pages in a hardcover book. Like Wheres Waldo only custom made for each child. This is a great Christmas gift. We would love to have you review it and to sponsor a give away. Can only imagine how many moms read you. You can check us out at bammco.net.
    We would be happy to make you a book for any child you choose. You can email us a photo and a shipping address where to send it. Let us put a smile on that little face, that’s what we do. After that if you like it we can talk.

    Thanks for your time,
    Tom & Sue

  • Hi Stacy, just happened upon your site and will now follow you on your social media sites. As a children’s book author, I’m always looking for any info about what kids and parents are ‘into’ these days. All the best to you and your family.

  • First we recommend stretching of all the different diets because I’ve learned to tune into what gives you energy. I have clients that tell me the in their last boot camp, they basically ran all the time. First and foremost, keep it simple. There are ways that you can remove fried or oily foods. Healthy diet plans will not leave these foods out. Remember that BHB blocks gpr41, I had reached a milestone I never thought possible.

    • Oh Le, you are too kind. It was so great meeting you too. Love knowing there are so many amazing bloggers right here in Texas. Thanks for reaching out to me, looking forward to getting to know you better.

  • How utterly random and such a small world! As I always do, I was pinning things that I feel might be good: recipes; craft projects that I will never have time to do; organization; home decorating; fun projects to do one day with the kiddos….on and on…. So back to the small world – I pinned an item which led to a site which in turn, had your blog linked to it. With a name such as yours, I knew there had to be only one you…then it was solidified when you mentioned the AF. I was assigned with you and your hubby in Germany. You worked in one building and I worked in the main building. I like what I see with your blog and will surely start to follow it. Small world :)

  • Hi Sgt Stacymae!
    It’s your cousin Mike, (Sally’s son) don’t you remember you were at my wedding only 32 years ago (I have the cutest picture of you tasting the wedding cake). OMG what a wonderful looking family you have and what a wonderful woman you have become. I saw your Dad at Justins wedding and he just went on and on about how proud he was of you and your role in the Air Force! Thanks You for your service! My mom has briefly caught me up with your upcoming appearance on CNN and I wanted to make sure I wished you best of Luck! You sound like an amazing person and are doing a fantastic job raising your family! One of these days I hope to see you and meet your family!


    This Website Is Awesome!

    Take care

    Love your cousin


  • Hey Stacy, I hope your day is going well! I figured I’d quickly reach out again—it would be great to talk briefly if you think there might be an opportunity for us to work together. If you’re not interested for now, that’s fine as well.

    Thanks again,
