The holidays are officially here! With Thanksgiving and Hanukkah just a few days away, and Christmas just around the corner, now’s the time to implement some new tried-and-true traditions. In my own family, we’ve had fun with all five of these holiday ideas and they’ve quickly become yearly traditions for us. More
Baby, it’s cold outside!
Here in Canada, we’ve been bundling our little ones in winter wear for the last couple of weeks now (thanks to the dropping temperatures and ice cold winds). But the cold season really sneaked up on me, considering how completely unprepared I was when it hit. Of course it wasn’t until the very last minute that I noticed my daughter needed all new winter gear, just one size larger. (Thank you, Universe, for rush delivery!)
Generic Halloween costumes come out year after year, and although there are definitely plenty of cute ones out there, if you ask me, handmade costumes will always trump store-bought. Not only are they usually better quality, but the sky’s the limit when it comes to character choice or theme. Sadly, many of us don’t have the time to make all of our kid’s Halloween costumes by hand (how did our parents used to do that?!), but thankfully we have Etsy. More
If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s this: polka dots will never go out of style! They were in when I was a child and are even more of a hot trend today (with some thanks due to Kate Middleton). And when it comes to kid stuff, they work on almost everything.
Yep, from clothing to decor, dots are both totally charming and completely gender-neutral. Whether they be big or small, multi-colored or black-and-white, there’s just something about their sweet style that adds a touch of whimsy and happiness to whatever they land on.
Here are some of my favorites finds that ride the dot trend…
This week saw the first days of school for many kids across the country. But in my family, we still have 10 days of summer vacation left before my girls head off. Unlike a lot of moms out there, I haven’t exactly been rubbing my hands together in eager anticipation; nor will I be gleefully celebrating the very moment my girls walk out the front door. Instead, I’ll be the mom crying at home, counting down the hours until they come home. My eldest will be entering second grade and my middle child will be starting Junior Kindergarten — her first real day at school.
As for me, my mind is already filled with lots of: Will she be OK?…I hope she has a nice teacher…Will she make friends right away?…Will they be nice to her? More
The heat of the summer is officially upon us (like it or not)… which means lots of family trips to the beach! My own son is currently at that stage where everything is an adventure. (Which certainly keeps things interesting.) He sees the water and runs straight to it without a care in the world. But getting him out of it is next to impossible, which is why I like to arrive prepared.
Whether you’re taking a road trip with your family or just so happen to live close to the beach, here are 6 things you won’t want to leave home without when you hit the sand. More
Father’s Day is this Sunday. (I know, I can’t believe it either!) If you’ve left your gift-shopping ’til the last minute, you aren’t alone — after all, dads can be a pretty tough bunch to buy for. And if he isn’t a sports fan, into fashion, or all about grilling, the gift options out there seem to dwindle. With that in mind, I’ve rounded up some unique (and yes, slightly geeky) gifts that the dad in your life probably doesn’t have yet –but should. More
Books are one of the very best gifts you can buy for a child. They spark imaginations, ignite ideas and educate. Our home is filled to the brim with all sorts of books. I have shelves in the bedrooms, the rec room and my desk is stacked with library loans and book store purchases.
We are addicted.
I’ve read the same classics to all three of my children, but during the early months of my last two, I came across some really fun and unique books that are unlike any I’ve seen before. These fun and quirky books are one-of-a-kind and definitely a must-have for any child… More
For me, Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate my family; because without them I wouldn’t even be a mother. Those sweet children of mine have changed me in more ways than I can count, enriching my life and filling it with endless amounts of love. More
Happy Earth Day! Today and all week long, people around the world are celebrating by throwing events, serving “clean” food, and educating their kids about the importance of conservation and recycling. It’s a great time to stop and think about how you and your family are impacting the world we live in — not just today, but all year long.
