“Hey, hey, Mae: I struggle with getting my kids to even try new foods, so they're stuck on their favorites and those contain loads of what we may need to try an elimination for. How can I make this work for our family?” Implementing food changes can be easy...until our feelings and our kids’ opinions get involved, right?
Mindfulness can feel like a big mountain to climb, then you throw kids in the mix and it seems like a lofty goal: a far-and-away idea that is less than possible. However, the research doesn’t lie - mindfulness and meditation combat stress, poor moods and anxiety.
While you don’t have to shape these immune-boosting gummies into various sized Lego-men and bricks, I do quite enjoy these lego gummy molds, and my little men go bananas for them! I grabbed these molds off of amazon and use a turkey baster to fill them up. Use a baster for gummy making - it’ll change your life! So much easier.
Last week a sweet little package arrived with a return address for Freely Give Co, a company unfamiliar to me. After taking a quick naptime peek around their site and looking through their gift box options that give back, my excitement for my own package jumped up quite a bit.
Last fall I grabbed a giant bag of mini Play-Dohs from Costcos' Halloween offerings to keep around for playdays and when I realized Tru needed Valentines for school, I whipped up this quick little printable. Our house is gluten and dairy-free for the time being, so this treat option is perfect. Plus, no one needs a preschooler high on life AND sugary candy.
You're growing by leaps and bounds and you're just so fun. The mullet is in full force and I keep willing it to curl around your ears, though I'm not sure it'll work before it's time for a trim. I love how hard you work at your new tasks - walking, drinking from cups, drinking smoothies.
Woke up the little, smiling babes yesterday and headed to the state fair with their Nana. We got to have giggles in the morning, a car ride of songs, watched the mule show, pretended to be bees, had a milk moment and even got pulled over by the state police...for a photo.
...Because life with these two is too sweet, pictures are a joy to my heart and they do no one any good on a harddrive all in the name of waiting until I'm caught up and getting to things chronologically.
Getting back to this sweet place that I love as our sweet, second son gets to growing and I get to sleeping more. Excited to hop back on board and share a backlog of images, miles of words and a bucket load of favorites, which can maybe benefit my reading/lady/mom/human friends.
A quick little recap from last spring when my sister and I threw our other sister a baby shower for her little adventure baby. The idea came from the fabrics and theme our sister, Sara, chose for her baby's room.
