A teething baby is so much fun, said no mother ever.
Today we’re talking about teething, and what teething toys are the best! Right now my little guy is teething (has been since 3 months!) and he finally got his first tooth! Both of my girls had teeth around 4 months, but this little guy has been drooling and chewing for months on end with nothing. And, his top tooth poked through first! It’s crazy how some kids have it easy, others worse, and the timing is all over the place. Below are my kids’ favourite teething toys. If you’ve got a fussy, teething baby, hang in there– and check out these little toys to help your baby through it!
As a busy Mom of three little kids, fast and good nutrition is key to my wellness routine. Today I’m sharing my go-to nutritional products that I have used for ten years. TEN. A whole decade of using Isagenix every dang day! I bring it on vacation, to work, and I even brought it to the hospital when I had my babies! Here are my favourite products. If you have any questions, please reach out!
In this post I’m sharing 5 simple and free ways to enjoy some time outside with (or without, if you need a break 😉 ) your kids! These are SIMPLE & FREE outdoor activities– I’m sparing you the costly supplies and extravagant planning. You can do these with the things you already have at home. There are a million extravagant, creative ideas for kids activities, but sometimes it’s nice to keep it simple and not buy more things.
Anyone reading this will know that we are faced with a world-wide pandemic at the moment. In our City, Province, and Country, we are in a time of social distancing. What this looks like is our immediate family spending everyday together and seeing no one else. BUT, we are blessed to live in a beautiful place, and enjoying the outdoors never seemed incredible, really.
I hope you and your family enjoy these free outdoor activities!
I don’t want to sleep like a baby, I just want to sleep like my husband.
One of my favourite memes, ever. If you’ve had a newborn and watched your husband sleep through those many night wakings, you know exactly what I’m talking about. As a Mom of three, I’ve been through the season of newborn sleep a few times. Our oldest daughter was an amazing sleeper– if you count sleeping only on people in two-hour chunks. We eventually turned to sleep “training” at four months old, and she truly did become an amazing sleeper. Since that experience, we have placed a high value on our family’s sleep.
Three babies and three hospital deliveries in, I feel a bit like a seasoned pro when it comes time to pack the hospital bag. Each experience I’ve learned something new about what to pack (by way of what I didn’t pack, of course). So, here it is, the ultimate hospital bag list from a Mom of three! xo
One, two, …… THREE! We are so excited to announce that Baby number 3 is joining our family this year! It has been a long road of getting this little nugget on board, and we are so happy to be able to finally announce our big news! Life is about to get a whole lot crazier and we are so excited to share our journey with you. Thank you so much to everyone for their love and excitement on our big announcement!
I can’t believe that both of our little girls are in school! Miss A. is off to three-year-old Preschool and Miss V. is off to Kindergarten. It has been a big adjustment for everyone, mostly in terms of how exhausted we all are with the new schedule, but both girls are so excited and happy to be in school– no tears over here! Well, at least from them, that is 😉 Both of our kids are incredibly social and they have enjoyed meeting new friends! Each of the girls and I celebrated their first day of school with a visit to our favourite market for a bag of candy… naturally.
With Fall just around the corner, the thought of busy schedules is lurking. Paired with an ever increasing amount of stuff and demands, no wonder we can become overwhelmed. This list of parenting books shares the common theme of connection. From being present, to simplifying, to focusing on love and togetherness, these inspiring reads shine light on the idea that sometimes less is more.
I hope you find some inspiration and helpful strategies for enjoying time together and parenting with love!
Spring has truly sprung! April brought a little rain, so much sunshine, and promises of summer on the way! We had a busy month prepping for our business’ prime season, so we found some balance playing outdoors with the girls. No agenda, no place to be, just good old fun outdoor play. The sunshine is so refreshing after a long winter and we are going to ride the outdoor play-all-day mantra for the next six months straight. Since the month seemed to fly by, I’ll keep this monthly recap short and sweet!
Below are a few of my favourite things for April!
Anyone else feel like they’ve survived the longest winter ever and SO incredibly eager for Spring to arrive? (Me: raises hand). We’re well into spring break and the longer days have us itching to get outside, clean out alllll the stuff, and start a fresh new season.
