Today my youngest got to spend the day with me, he started running a low grade fever last night and acted like he didn’t feel very good. I decided that is was best to keep him home from daycare so that he could get some extra rest while I monitored his fever. It was nice being able to spend some one on one time with my baby. We enjoyed the extra snuggles and cuddles, we watched a few of his favorite shows on TV, and spent some time …Continue

Do you want your child to be polite in public? Do you want them to say “please” and “thank you” when they are offered things? If so, it is important that you begin teaching your child how to have appropriate manners early on. In fact, the earlier you begin teaching your child the better off you will be in…Continue

Yesterday I was watching my four-year-old playing so wonderfully with her 19-month-old sisters; they were interacting so well and enjoying each other’s company immensely (it isn’t always like that by the way). I thought how great it was that there was just a two-and-a-half year age gap between them.…Continue
My curly headed boy and I were bent over our roses when we first heard it. “Listen,” I whispered. Eli cupped his hand to his ears. With all of his might, he listened.
Slowly a grin spread across his face. He brushed back his curls, “‘Dose are ‘wittle biwrds. I heawrs ‘dem to muh eawrs.”
On our fence post hangs a bird house. It isn’t a special type or even very much to look at. But little…Continue

A sea of golden yellows dots the yard; they seem to have popped up over night. Having just learned, "April showers bring May flowers," my son repeats the phrase to himself as he explores each flower.
For that is what they are to him: flowers.
He hurries to bring me one, proud to be giving Mommy the flower.
And I treasure it.
As he races to collect more, I think about how fast this time will pass.
Soon the yellow flower heads will turn…Continue

Putting a diaper on an active toddler is like trying to catch a falling star — it is impossible. My daughter has a mind of her own and 1) hates diapers and 2) hates clothes. The success rate of clothing her and putting her diaper on in under 5 minutes is currently at 50%. DH is afraid to change her diaper because HB won’t sit still, and a diaper change ends in tears or leakage. Changing her is not for the faint of heart.
The following is an account of a “successful”…Continue

A few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to let my son pick out a potty seat. We choose to get a potty seat that easily fits on the regular toilet, so that I wouldn’t have to retrain him to use the big potty once he had potty training down. Besides that the daycare he attends also uses a potty seat…Continue

Earlier in the week I found myself reading and relating to this blog post over at The Young Mommy Life. Big T works in IT and so is practically glued to his laptop, I am an undiagnosed Facebook addict. I have an iPhone and face time my family almost every day. We use the Xbox to webcam with my mother in law and to…Continue
