Christmas season is my favorite time of the year and it’s even more fun with kids. But it also means it’s cold and rainy and not as much fun to be outside. To entertain Hazel and to get us in the Christmas spirit we’ve been doing a lot of fun Christmas themed indoor activities (we’ve even built a snowman inside!). I thought I’d share of what we’ve been doing in case you want to do them too. A lot of these are activities that we do year-round and I’ve just added a

By | parenting | No Comments

So we were at the library the other day and a little kid stuck his hands in Iris’ mouth and Hazel licked the library table. I busted out my Nice ‘n Clean Antibacterial Hand Wipes so fast and started wiping down the table. Haha! But that’s not even the worst of the things that have been in Hazel’s mouth.

The holiday season means traveling for a lot of people, and with toddlers, that can be very stressful. When we go on road trips with the girls, Hazel is always in the backseat asking “we amost der?” and then she’ll tell Iris “Is ok, Iris, we amost der.” It’s absolutely adorable for the first five minutes of our trip, but after a few hours it’s not as cute. Haha! Through our many road trips, I’ve learned that if you’re not prepared with activities, your toddler will cry…a lot. So I make

I love getting to carry on traditions that I did when I was a kid, and create new ones for my girls. Now that Hazel is two, I’m super excited to start the tradition of doing an activity advent calendar each Christmas with the girls

Both of my girls are really good sleepers (Hazel started sleeping through the night at 5 months old, and Iris at 2 months old, Hazel takes a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon, and Iris takes 1 or 2 short naps in the morning and a 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon), and whenever I mention how long they sleep for, I get asked what my secret is. Truthfully, every
