Schedule and Chores for a 3-Year Old

I suppose all parents experience moments where we wish we'd done things a little differently. Or a lot differently. Or implemented something a little sooner. As with a lot of parenting skills, I'm of the mind that you should start things as soon as possible. For us, this goes for disciplining (we started time outs at 11 months),… Continue reading Schedule and Chores for a 3-Year Old

Traditions & Christmas Activities

When we spent our first Christmas together as a family of 3, Michael and I talked about what kind of traditions we wanted to start with Blake. We didn't come up with anything to implement right away (what can you do with a 1 month old, anyway?) Though we'd talked about it over the past… Continue reading Traditions & Christmas Activities

No Stress Potty Training

My husband and I now have a fully potty trained 2.5-year-old toddler in our midst! And oh does he look so cute in his Mickey Mouse or Lightning McQueen big-boy underwear! The money saved on not having to purchase diapers is nice, finally. Even better, was the ease of it all. No stress has been my… Continue reading No Stress Potty Training

Sleep Training a Toddler

After the hurdle of sleep training an infant, I just kind of assumed we were done. Forever. We started sleep training Blake at 4 months old and ever since then he's slept through the night with no regression.  Celebrating this success, I think Michael and I both thought that was it. We were done and the… Continue reading Sleep Training a Toddler

Active Summer Activities

It's been so fun watching Blake's personality develop the older he gets. Michael and I often find ourselves laughing until we cry over the things he comes up with. "Guess what daddy? Prince Tuesday's coming to see me!" (Daniel Tiger fans will get that one) "Momma! There's food stuck in my butt!" "I want to… Continue reading Active Summer Activities

Daycare Day 2

Blake started his new daycare yesterday. I have been a nervous wreck on the days leading up to this. I knew it was the right decision, yet I still wondered if it was the right decision. For a week I had been preparing Blake for the change.  I told him about his fun new teachers… Continue reading Daycare Day 2

Asthma

Sometimes when people ask about Blake being sick (or if he's sick AGAIN), I really exaggerate, and tell them he's been sick his whole life. Obviously untrue, but there are times when it just seems like his reality. He's been sick for almost a month. I thought it was 3 weeks but the doctor informed me today… Continue reading Asthma

Bless The Stress

I've been hesitant to post about our moving process because I wasn't sure how to put it all in to words.  It was bittersweet in the beginning, leaving our home that has so many sentimental moments attached to it. Now I'm screaming "Get me the hell out of here" because it's been a nightmare. (That… Continue reading Bless The Stress
