Spring Time Fun with Evenflo!

Spring Time Fun with Evenflo!

We are finally getting some Spring like weather here!  I know, I know, Spring doesn’t actually begin for a few weeks but we’ve had such a wet and cold winter that the gorgeous clear blue skies and milder temps are so appreciated around here.

Especially when you have two little boys who love to be outside. [Read more…]

Five ways to prepare your Toddler for Kindergarten

Five ways to prepare your Toddler for Kindergarten

I’m a big advocate for early childhood education.  As a former teacher, I’ve seen firsthand the benefits that it has.  Children who have attended pre-school tend to be more social, participate more in classroom discussion, have better fine motor skills and are often slightly ahead academically.  However, attending pre-school isn’t always an option for everyone.  To help to ensure children are still prepared for Kindergarten, there are some simple things that can be done at home with them.

Kids in the Kitchen #4 – Ants on a Log

Kids in the Kitchen #4 – Ants on a Log

Hey there!

I’m a little behind on these Kids in the Kitchen posts just because we’ve been so busy lately!  That and The Love Nugget has been more interested in playing outside than being in the kitchen.

He’s such an outdoorsy boy!

Today’s Kids in the Kitchen is one that is simple and probably one you’ve made before.  If you haven’t though, it’s a great way to get your kids to eat celery and sneak in some healthy fat from nut butter 🙂

The Mom I want to Be

The Mom I want to Be

Lately the love nugget and I have been battling daily. Numerous fits, time outs, frustration and tiredness pretty much every day. I could blame it on the fact that we’ve been living in a hotel for three months. That he’s giving me a taste of the terrible threes. Or that he just likes to push my buttons. To me placing blame in this situation is a cop out. Instead I’m choosing to hold myself accountable and realize that I haven’t been patient, present or the mom I truly want to be.

Munchkin Meals – Love Nugget Eats at 2 1/2

Munchkin Meals – Love Nugget Eats at 2 1/2

Good morning!

At the end of this month The Love Nugget is going to be 2 1/2!  Before we know it, he’ll be turning 3!  It’s so crazy how fast time flies when you have kids.  I know everyone says that but you never understand it until you have a little one growing into a big one!

As he grows, he eats more and more!  I swear the kid could eat all day long if I let him.  I can’t even imagine what our grocery bill will be like when he’s a teenager!  Yikes!

Just take a look at a day of eats for this growing boy.

Toddler Tuesday – Grandparent’s Day Craft

Toddler Tuesday – Grandparent’s Day Craft

Did you know that this Sunday is Grandparent’s Day?

I was blessed with some very special Grandparents and am now seeing how special our parents are as Grandparent’s to The Love Nugget. He LOVES spending time with them all while we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, it’s so special to watch them being the amazing Grandparents that they are.

Keeping a toddler entertained on hot summer days

Keeping a toddler entertained on hot summer days

There were quite a few days this summer where the temperatures were well over 100 degrees.  Which mean even with a large shaded patio, we couldn’t spend too much time outside.  It’s crazy how fast The Love Nugget’s little body heats up and besides the fact that he could easily over heat, I’m not a fan of being sweaty and puffy within minutes of exiting the house.  So needless to say we spent several days inside which with an active toddler, can be a bit challenging.

Munchkin Meals 26 months

Munchkin Meals 26 months

Good morning!
Can you believe it’s August 1st already! Holy cow where has summer gone!?! We wanted to do so many things with The Love Nugget this summer and so far haven’t done many of them. I had hoped to take him camping, to San Francisco, hiking, to the lake, and several other fun places. However, we have been so wrapped up in house shopping that we haven’t really been able to do much of those things. I feel horrible about it now that I realize time is flying by so fast but at the same time, we do need to find a new house. Hopefully soon!
