Dolls for every age!
August 17, 2012 11:41 am | by

I love baby dolls! All of my children had baby dolls from a very young age. My first child was about 9 months old when we found out we were expecting our second (well, what we later found out was our second AND third). One of the best pieces of advice we received was to get him a doll. As the time for the new addition(s) approached, we pretended we were feeding and changing the baby doll. Then once our twins arrived, he could feed and change his baby right alongside mommy and daddy. It was a challenge to find

Toddler Chores
July 11, 2012 3:29 pm | by

Can I let you in on a little secret? Toddlers LOVE chores. I know it’s hard to fathom. When we hear the word chores, endless piles of dishes and laundry spring to mind. Miraculously, that is not what toddlers think of. They think it’s fun! It took me a few babies to discover this awesome fact. I wish I’d know earlier, which is why I’m sharing with you today. However, before reading further, there are a couple of disclaimers.   First, doing chores with toddlers takes approximately ten times longer than if you did them yourself. However, there is a

Incorporating Music into Our Day
April 25, 2012 12:14 pm | by

Music is a big part of our day. We have dance parties, listen to music while cooking and sing songs before bed. I’m not sure we could get through our day without music! There usually comes a point in each day when the boys are bored (and therefore a little cranky) and we need something to shake everyone back into more positive thinking. You know what I’m talking about- when every suggested activity gets shot down and everyone wants to do something but no one wants to do anything. This is when we turn to dance parties. I have a

Rainy days and Mondays
April 11, 2012 1:53 pm | by

I used to love rainy days… until I had children. Why is it that toddlers don’t appreciate rainy days? Now I just wistfully reflect on the Karen Carpenter song and the days I could curl up on the sofa and read or watch movies all day long without interruption. The same goes for sick days, bed-rest during pregnancy or any of those other types of days where you just want to stay in bed all day. Once you have children, these days often become a new sort of challenge, something you may even dread rather than look forward to.

Some of my favorite baby shower gifts…
October 14, 2009 2:53 pm | by

I am not a mom, but I am a very proud “aunt” many, many times over. As such, I find myself constantly going to baby showers – all the time lately. I love going and celebrating the life that is coming into the world. It is so important and significant to me to honor the women in my life and watch, love and support them as they have cared for the life growing inside them before they even met them…face to face that is. Now, every time I am invited to a shower, I want to take something really great,
