Happy Turkey Day to everyone!
So, nope I did not get to see Cornelius for this wonderful and joyous occasion. You guessed it! Baby daddy drama again. I actually described it as comical. If I had to guess, I’d say he could not wait for today to flex his control muscle and tell me he would not be allowing me to see my two-year old son. Even though it’s my visitation time. Ha! What are orders for when only one side gets enforced? And then to strategically wait to tell me on Thanksgiving…Continue

Oh how I love to be around babies. I love everything about them. There is nothing like having a baby in your arms and cuddling up with them. Nibbling on those soft cheeks, priceless.
Now Toddlers! The little people we still have to take care of yet they have a mind of their own. The stage in which they don’t rely on you as much but you still have to keep on top of them. The stage in which everything gets tested and you never know what to expect.
What to do when your…

My son is a huge book worm and we LOVE it! It's so fun to see him engaged in stories as we read them, choosing books over toys in the store, and sitting in his chair going through baskets of books rather than watching T.V. We encourage reading in our house in many different ways and so far it seems to be helping.
Here's some tips to help get them to love reading,
1. Provide a wide range of books and lots of them!…Continue

We've heard the term many times:
Necessity is the mother of invention.
I can now say I truly understand what that statement means.
Last week I shared how my two-year-old frequently takes off her diaper at nap time. It has been driving me crazy.
First of all, I want…

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small. When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children. Every week our library has a scheduled…Continue

Conversations with my 5 and 4 year old daughters are very enlightening. It is amazing and very amusing to get their perspective on life. Sometimes when I think I've heard and seen it all from the little people running around our home, I am pleasantly reminded that they are only getting started....…Continue

This morning I asked toddler to help me pick up the laundry so that I could start a load of laundry today. After we completed got the laundry sorted and a load of laundry started, I had a fantastic idea popped into my head and I wanted to share my…Continue
As a mom, I know how important it is for your children to learn new things at an early age. Children typically learn very quickly and easily during those early years especially their language skills. I also knew that I needed to find some preschool teaching materials and tools to help keep him occupied and to make learning fun. I…Continue

Last week, we made the decision to withdraw my son from daycare. I am sure that he will miss his friends at daycare; however, he will get plenty of social interaction several times a week at church. He is excited that he is going to be able to spend all of his time with mommy. I asked him if he wanted to go to “Mommy’s Preschool” and he…Continue

Many parents often times pressure their children to start potty training their child before they are fully ready. Potty training before your child is ready can cause unnecessary stress for both you and your toddler. With all three of my kids, I waited until they were ready to potty train before I even attempted it. A…Continue

I found some leftover colored sand, and I left it up to Kay to decide what to do with it. She had an answer right away, "We could put glue on the paper and make pictures." Okay, works for me. I got the glue and paper, she carried the sand and we brought everything outside. (This definitely seemed like one of those 'outdoor crafts.') She started by mixing all the colors together, making a less-than-attractive combination, but the glitter that was also included at least made it…Continue

“Nails done mommy,” Anna says as I put her in her car seat. I’m not sure if it is a request or if that’s where she thinks we are going. “Not today precious.” I try to change the subject and remind her that we have to go to the airport to pick up Jodee, who’s coming to stay with Anna for a few days while Steve…Continue

This is the day hubs and I dreaded the most. We drove to Florida during the evening so the girls could sleep. Coming home, we left the condo at 10:00 Florida time. But we weren't able to head straight home. We had to stop at one of those souvenir stores to replace the crab that "has been sleeping so much" ... I don't like lying to the girls, although, I'm just not ready to explain death to them. One of the crabs had died. They off and on the day before and that morning, they would has…Continue

A few weeks ago my son moved to a new room at daycare and every since it seems as if he is throwing more fits and tantrums at home. I know that there is a stigma attached to two year old children and parents must realize that all two year old’s go through a phase often referred to as the terrible twos. I never really cared for that name…Continue
