Rainy Day Activities for Kids

Fun activities to have fun on a rainy day

Summer is here! Take your kids outside and enjoy the weather. Here in St. Louis, we like to say, “If you don’t like the weather… wait.” That’s because it’s not uncommon for major temperature shifts to occur. On some days, it can feel like a different season between morning and afternoon. If it gets too hot it’s a rainy day, here’s a list of activities you can do together. Have fun! Jump in the puddles on a rainy day Of course, every now and then, you have to embrace a rainy day. Grab some galoshes, an umbrella and a raincoat

 
What to Pack When Traveling with a Toddler

Traveling with a toddler

My family and I recently went on a trip across the country from St. Louis to California. This was our first big trip with our little girl, who is now 2 and a half years old. We were headed to Disneyland for a couple of days, then down to San Diego for some family time at the beach. To say I was nervous about the trip would be an understatement. I had lists for my lists a month ahead of time because I was so worried I would forget something. I’ve compiled one last list for you of my must-have

 
Raising a Fiercely Determined Child
November 22, 2016 12:10 pm | by

I have a fiercely determined child.  She’s smart, beautiful, creative, and once she puts her mind to something, there is no stopping her.  You can try to slow her down, but actually stopping her from what she has set her heart on is highly unlikely.  Raising Avianna Marilyn has been a learning process for me. Avianna was born 5 years ago on a beautiful October morning.  Her birth was the easiest out of my three girls.  I was at the hospital for only 45 minutes before she was born, and the entire experience was amazing.  I pushed three times, and this

 
Real Mom Talk: Kids & Pets

Our baby and fur baby are almost exactly three years apart. Asher came along when Melvin (the pup) was just three and it’s been an adjustment since. Melvin was pretty good when it came to getting used to Asher being around, but I can tell he isn’t always interested in playing when Asher is eager to have some fun. On occasion he will entertain Asher, but Melvin is pretty laid back and would rather be napping on the couch or hiding out somewhere.  Melvin is a smaller dog, a Shih-Tzu, and his demeanor is just easy. He’s a very well-behaved

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday — one that’s filled with lots of sweets and love! During this time of year, I always try to make a festive craft with my little one that we can display around the house and admire! This year for Valentine’s Day, we decided to make DIY Tissue Paper Hearts that look like stained glass! This is something that’s super easy to make, great for any age and adds so much color into our house. Aside from this craft being a bonding experience, it also promotes fine motor skill use and independence. Here’s how

 
Handling Picky Eaters
January 18, 2016 7:32 pm | by

My little guy has always been a great eater. Ever since he first started solids, there was rarely anything he didn’t like. After he turned two, I worried that his great little eating habits would change, but they didn’t. I thought we were in the clear, well, that was until he turned three and now we’re learning how to handle a picky eater! For the last four months, my eager little eater has now turned into a persnickety muncher who turns his nose up at the sight of anything that’s not a boiled egg, pack of fruit snacks, or cereal. We’ve had

 
Cloth 101: When to Change a Cloth Diaper

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

We’ve all seen THAT baby — the baby who’s running around with a disposable diaper that looks like it weighs 15 pounds and is sagging well below the waist. By now, we should all (hopefully) know that when a diaper droops, it’s usually a clear indication that it’s time for a change. In general, it’s easy to tell when a disposable diaper needs to be replaced. But with cloth, you’re not as lucky. Cloth diapers are not equipped with absorbent materials that turn into a squishy gel when wet, which, with a simple poke, tells you that your baby should be changed.

There comes a time in your cloth diapering journey where you’re going to have to give up cloth.

Real Mom Talk: Potty Training Your Toddler
March 15, 2015 7:26 pm | by

So you think your child is ready for potty training. Awesome! She is exhibiting all the signs of readiness: she wakes up dry after nap and in the mornings, tells you before or after she goes, loves to exhibit independence, shows interest when YOU have to go (that’s always fun), and hates having a dirty diaper. There are probably more signs but I feel these are the most obvious. So whether your child is 18 months or almost 4, if he or she is exhibiting some of this behavior, you may want to give it a try! I’ll admit that
