Chrismas List for Kids 2016

Making Christmas lists is something I have always loved to do. Moving them online and sharing all my excitement has made them even more special to me. I nearly ran out of time this year!! But I am on a mission, and these are all gifts you MIGHT still have time to get for your little one this Christmas!! Maybe you, like me, are feeling like you are missing something in your kid’s gifts… That something extra that didn’t make their list, but you KNOW will make them light up like the 4th of July (as they say).

Surviving Potty Training sm

Surviving potty training

Potty training is not fun. I have been mostly incredibly blessed, because Charly’s nursery school started the process and my mom manages most of the rest.

5 Tips to head off nasty school germs

As the entire Interwebs knows, it was my baby’s second birthday last month!! How even?! Last year I shared Charly’s first birthday party post after the first birthday post, so I decided to split these up too with her birthday post first and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party post next.

Where we’re at 21.02.16

This past week was so full and so empty of sleep, it all feels a little distant and full of blank spaces. But I feel like we need an update on where we’re at right now so you don’t all forget me! The next two weeks will be full of posts for you from My Favourite Things, to an awesome campaign I missed out on, to an Easter giveaway with one of my favourite brands, to one that might ruffle some feathers (but MAN I have a bee in my bonnet that needs to be let out), and also Charly’s birthday party post. All that for later, but for right now… [Read more…]
