Creating a Yes Environment
April 29, 2008 10:29 pm | by

We’ve all heard it. The child yelling “No!” at the top of their lungs. It often seems like that is the first word that children learn to use on a regular basis. I hear it in restaurants, in stores, in church, and at the park. Children love to use that word to separate themselves as individuals. But it doesn’t have to be something you hear day in and day out in your own home, from your own child. By creating a Yes Environment in your home you really can minimize the amount of obstinate No’s that you hear. So what

 
Baby Food Comparison
April 24, 2008 10:00 pm | by

I wish I could give you scratch and sniff internet for this post because the difference would just blow you away! This is a little experiment you may just have to try at home to really get the full effect. I purchased a jar of baby food peas and a bag of frozen peas. When I got home I microwaved a bowl of the frozen peas and then whirled it in the blender for a moment or two. Then I put the two kinds of peas side by side so you could see the difference. Oh how I wish you

We’ve been working hard on getting the build-out finished for the new retail store (located at 9916 Kennerly Plaza in St. Louis, MO). The new sign is up and we should have the final permits tomorrow! We packed up the old store today and have temporarily closed at the old location until we can get everything moved in at the new address.

Food Fun: A Photo Essay

Zucchini is getting cheap around here, summer must be right around the corner! I bought a bunch the other day and made some very yummy zucchini bread. I had some extra zucchini when I was done mixing so I figured I would just pop it into my Fresh Baby Tray and make good use of it. When I have been making veggies for the family it has been easy to pop a little of the leftovers into the blender and put them in the tray as well. I have just made sure to cook the vegetables without butter or salt,

 
Me and My Lamby
April 5, 2008 1:59 pm | by

Lambies are the best. For my last four kids I have used one and it has been so handy. That fuzzy little rug can do just about anything. We have had our lamby for over ten years now and it still looks pristine. It has been through 4 kids – well it is on its fourth kid and there is not a stain to be found on it. It is still lofty and cuddly and perfect as ever. Some uses for your Lamby Lambskin: Before baby is born, sleep on it yourself. It is wonderfully cushy on those sore hips

 
The Babysitter and the bumGeinius
April 2, 2008 8:12 pm | by

Dental work. I hate dental work. But what must be done, must be done. So I dropped off the two under-school-aged little people with a good friend of mine so that I could go and be tortured in peace. My friend has a bunch of her own children, including two close in age to my youngest two. Mine are 6 months and 3 years and hers are 1 year and 3 years. So I knew the kids would have a pretty good time. She has never been one to understand my love for cloth diapering. It’s just not her thing,

 
Things I Would Rather Buy
March 28, 2008 1:51 pm | by

When my husband is working a lot of overtime I get tempted. Wandering through the grocery store, those cute little boxes of disposable diapers sing their siren song, “I’m so much easier, you can do a little less laundry since this week is so busy.” I begin to falter, reaching out towards a particular favorite brand, realizing no, I don’t want the smaller package, because then I have to worry about running out. But the price sets me back a bit. $20 for the big box. I look at my cart. $20 adds a lot to a grocery bill. Especially

 
A Favorite Baby Toy
March 26, 2008 11:22 am | by

Fold a piece of clothing, hand Lily her toy, fold a piece of clothing, hand Lily her toy… so it went as I tried to catch up on folding the mountain of laundry while Lily was willing to sit in her Bumbo chair. Unfortunately though, Lily’s grip is not the surest and she can’t reach the things that fall on the floor from her seat. So up and down I went, handing her the toy and then folding something. It was so nice to see her interested in something besides me for a moment, even if her dexterity wasn’t quite

 
Car Seat Safety Part 2
March 21, 2008 5:21 pm | by

I asked Maryanne to explain some of the mistakes she sees that she listed in the first post. Some are very self explanatory, but here are her answers: Facing forward too soon How long should a child Rear Face? A child should remain rearfacing to the limits of their particular carseat. The limits being the carseat’s rearfacing weight limit AND you must ensure that they have 1″ or more of plastic shell above their head. Boosters being used too soon When is a child old enough or big enough for a booster? A good goal is to keep a child
