DIY Playroom Teepee Makeover

2020-05-08T10:35:29-07:00May 8th, 2020|Home, Toddlers|0 Comments

The kid's playroom has never quite felt right for me. It's an awkward space with a huge baby gate wrapping around our wood stove making the actual play space quite narrow. Previously our playroom teepee was in the corner but it felt like it took up more room. Moving it to the center has actually made it feel more open and given us some usable space on each side for toy storage. [...]

Screen time can be such a controversial topic for some, but whether your kid is in front of a screen for hours a day, or closely monitored and time restricted, I think we can all agree that it's great when they're engaging with something that's educational. But, not all apps are created equal and it's surprisingly hard to find good ones that are age appropriate. That's why I've compiled this list of [...]

6 Tips For Surviving 2 Under 2

2020-02-17T23:46:02-08:00January 29th, 2020|Babies, Family, Toddlers|11 Comments

Two under two is no joke. The adjustment period pushed me to a point of exhaustion I didn't know was possible, and every day felt like chaos. I was scared to be left alone with the 2 kids for more than a couple of hours. How would I handle naps? What if the baby is crying and my toddler needs me at the same time? How do I go to the bathroom? [...]

How to Throw a Dollar Store Curious George Birthday Party

My son loves Curious George, so as his 2nd birthday was approaching I knew I had to throw him a Curious George birthday party. I have so much fun planning parties like this (Low Key Gender Reveal), but I also think things should be kept simple and within budget. The dollar store is my favourite way of doing that! In all honesty, for this Curious George birthday party, I strayed from my [...]

As we all know, life goes by in the blink of an eye. Already my son has turned 2 and my baby girl is 6 months old! Every moment feels so special and like I will hold onto it forever, but as the days go by, everyday duties cycle through, new adventures begin, and I find myself unable to recall moments from the early days. I try to capture as many moments [...]

5 Toddler Activities for 18 – 24 Month Olds

2020-03-30T23:08:10-07:00January 2nd, 2020|Activities, Family, Toddlers|9 Comments

Kids are serious nutcases and when they're so little their attention spans can be so short so they get bored easily and tug on your pant leg to entertain them for a while. As much as I love playing with my kids, I can't do it all the time, cause this mama needs to get shit done and have a moment to breathe and finish a coffee while it's hot. That's why [...]

After going through so many challenges with our first born's sleep (read about sleep training a toddler) I knew I didn't want to repeat the same thing with our daughter.

It is truly incredible what we go through creating our tiny humans, and every mom's birth experience is so different.  After having such a rough experience with Logan (read more about his birth story), I'm so happy I'm able to share about a positive birth experience this time around. As my due date crept closer, our family fell sick, talk about bad timing! Logan caught a cold a week prior, followed by [...]
