I’ve been really trying to simply the girls’ toys and provide them with things that will allow them to use their imagination, and things that they will enjoy playing with for a long time.

Hazel is eagerly awaiting the day we bring down our Christmas books this year, and I know both girls will be super excited to get a brand new, never read before, Christmas book! I’m having the hardest time picking out which books I want to get the girl this year–I read several when we were at the book store a couple weeks ago and they were all so cute!

Easel For Toddlers
By | parenting | No Comments

“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn” -O. Fred Donaldson

The most important job of a child is to play. That’s why I love to fill their playroom with toys that will help them learn and development. An easel, table + chairs, and toy box are essential for any play room. Our set is from the Crayola Vocalpoint Pop-Up shop (see below for more details on how to shop it).

By | parenting | No Comments

You carry your baby in your belly for 9 months, and you get so used to always having your baby so close to you that it can be hard to make the transition to having your baby sleep in a crib in his/her own room. I think it’s probably harder on us parents than it is on our babies. Ha! So I’ve got some tips that helped us with the transition and I think will help you too.

10 MUST-HAVE TOY TO PROMOTE DEVELOPMENT

By | parenting | One Comment

—SHOP THE POST—

There are so many toys on the market and it can be tempting to want to buy them for our children. They seem so in love with the toy in the store, but often when you get home, they quickly lose interest. So many toys are “one hit wonders” that can only be played with one way. Those types of toys only hold our children’s attention for a short amount of time. They grow out of those toys so quickly and before we know it, they’re in the donate pile.
