I haven’t been feeling well since the weekend. Tired, achy, foggy, tired…oh wait, I said that already.

It’s tough taking care of a very active toddler and a five month old when you’re feeling under the weather. Not like you can just hide yourself under the blanket and ignore the kids when they’re hungry or need diaper changes. So, what’s a mom to do?

Great Nursery Idea

01.23.2013

Happy Wednesday! So I was surfing for the web and checking out Babble’s list of top mom blogs from 2010… yeah, I know I just wanted to start from the beginning. Lol. And was looking for some inspiration for my guest post today.

Anyhow, I ended up at a blog I’ve visited before A Cup of Jo by Joanna Goddard. I like her clean and simple her blog design.

this-lovely-home-how-to-make-paper-snowflakes-winter-crafts

Winter is one of my favorite seasons of the year (after Autumn). I love snow. I love being able to throw snowballs and build snowmen (and snow women). And who doesn’t love laying in the snow to make snow angels?

But we can’t be outside in the snow all day (or may be we can ^_^). So, what do you do with the kiddos when we’re stuck indoors on a snow day? I always think crafts are the best way to keep the kids occupied during these cold months. Today I wanted to share some snowflake crafts.

I actually had a different topic in mind for my guest post today, but after reading Stacey’s post about What to do in the Winter on Monday, I decided to write about places you can go with your kids during the winter. Because let’s face it, it can get crazy in the house when the kids cannot play outside.

thanksgiving-crafts-for-kids-1

Wowza! Thanksgiving is tomorrow. You’re probably already preparing dishes or you’re like me and just not grocery shopping. With all the craziness going on for ┬áthe holidays, don’t forget about the kiddos! They can certainly help you prepare meals and, of course, dessert. Because we all know dessert is the real reason everyone loves Thanksgiving. But there’s also the question of how to entertain the kids during the course of the day. For this, I lean on crafts. I’m a huge proponent of arts and crafts. Read More »

Safety Tip

10.10.2012

It’s Wednesday! Last week, I read a story about a child… a very sad story. She was climbing on furniture and was injured because a dresser toppled over. While the story ended somewhat happily – the little girl survived, the story was heart wrenching to read. So, this week, I’m going to keep it simple… A tip for ALL parents. Whether you’re a first time parent or a long time parent. Read More »

play2

I’ve been thinking a lot about our playroom at home. Yep… we have one. But, the reason I’ve been thinking about it is because a lot of our friends don’t have one. While friends have been saying they wish they had a playroom, I’ve been staring at the playroom for the last few months thinking I have to finish it. Read More »

how-to-choose-a-changing-table

When you have a baby, it’s inevitable for you to have a long list of things you need to buy in preparation for baby arrival. The list grows and grows and grows and grows. Ok. You get my drift. The point is, how do you decide what’s important? What’s necessary and what’s not necessary? The answer is… you don’t. I’m not being coy. I’m simply stating a fact. Everyone’s needs, necessities and situations are different. So what I need might not be what you need and vice versa. Read More »

maria-yasko-1

Have you ever heard of Maria Yasko? If you haven’t, now you have. She is one amazing designer. I was trying to decide what to guest post about today when the idea of highlighting a designer came to mind while I was searching online for kids room designs. From what I can see online, she’s mostly known for designing the most insanely interesting shelving. Then I saw a fabulous room design by Maria Yasko which I’ll show you in a bit. Read More »

rita-likes-nightstands

It’s probably safe to say most homes have night stands. I have yet to visit a home that does have night stands present in at least one bedroom. And why not? They’re so useful for holding our alarm clock, phone, light, book… anything we want to keep by our bedside. Today, I decided to feature some night stands I’ve looked at in stores and on the internet.
