Patriotic Red, White & Blue Jello Snack for Kids

It's that time of the year. Summer is here. Kids are out of school. Weekends are filling up quick, especially with fireworks in the air and the fourth of July approaching.

You know, the ones that are still festive but only take a fraction of the time to put … [Read more...]

The Absolute Best Swim Floats for Little Kids

This post was sponsored by SwimWays as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received products to facilitate my review. Did you know that according to the CDC, children ages 1-4 have the highest rates of drowning compared to all age groups? It's an especially frightening statistic for moms of toddlers and babies to face. That's why whether we're heading to the pool, lake or beach, the last thing I want to find is that we just don't have the proper swimming gear or flotation devices to make our little ones feel safe in the water. There are so many different types of swim … [Read more...]

How to Make Potty Training Stress-free

This post was sponsored by PAMPERS® EASY UPS, however all the opinions expressed are my own. The signs were all there. Wanting to sit on the potty. Tugging at his diaper while saying the words "pee pee" and actually going pee pee while on the potty! That's when I knew it was finally time to potty-train our recently turned 2 year-old boy. It's an often-dreaded journey that many parents want to avoid...and I don't blame them...especially with everything we went through while potty training our eldest son. But going through that experience helped us learn a thing or two when it comes to potty … [Read more...]

5 Tips for Teaching Your Baby & Toddler to Swim {#SwimWays}

This post was sponsored by SwimWays as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received products to facilitate my review. Memorial Day weekend, otherwise known as the "unofficial" start to summer is around the corner. And we all know what this means: more time spent outdoors to have fun and splash about in the pool or at the beach! So now that my 2 and 4 year-old have comfortably mastered basic pool and water safety, it's time to kick it up a notch and help them actually learn to swim.  Personally, I like the idea of introducing kids to the water as early as possible for … [Read more...]

5 Tips to Protect Baby’s Skin in Spring & Summer {Giveaway}

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMe Media and Dreft. All opinions are 100% mine. We've had a tough few months being cooped up indoors, waiting for Spring to finally arrive with the sun and warm weather. Our boys can never get enough of outdoor activities like exploring nature, splashing around with water, and simply running around to burn off energy. They just need that time outside to be kids! So we're thrilled that the days are finally getting longer and the sun is starting to shine. But with all the change of seasons, comes more allergens in the air and higher … [Read more...]

Words From a Nurse That Saved My Delivery #ThankYouNurses

This review was made possible by iConnect and Pampers.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine. The room was cold and bright with fluorescent lights. So bright I could barely keep my eyes open. Everything felt so sterile. And indeed it was as I laid my eyes on all the medical tools and equipment surrounding me in the operating room. She took my hand and gave me a pillow to hold over my stomach, as the anesthesiologist instructed me to arch my back in cat pose. I was terrified of this moment, as years of chronic back pain filled my … [Read more...]

How to Keep Toddlers Entertained in Public (Without a Phone!)

Toddlers. They're miniature people with ginormous attitudes sometimes. The problem is, occasionally you find yourself out in public with them; exposed to the elements and all the other mommies out there. We've all been at the store and witnessed tiny people languishing on the tile floor or demanding candy bars from the checkout upon pain of death (or just motherly embarrassment). We've even been some of those mothers who's little angels have just.had.enough. I once left a completely full grocery cart in the middle of the aisle when my 2 year old was losing it.  Yes, even frozen food. That … [Read more...]

10 Easy Activities Baby & Toddler Can Do Together

That moment you bring home a new baby is full of joy and love, with all the feel-goods that make you ever so giddy inside. But then you remember the task ahead of you is real: dividing your time and attention between the baby, toddler and other kids. This is especially true when it comes time for entertaining the little ones ALL AT ONCE. It's not always easy to find activities that both baby and toddler can partake in. Typically babies and toddlers don’t have the same interests and aren't quite on the same skill level. That's when life calls for a little creativity. This post may … [Read more...]
