Pool Time

Wordy Wednesday

You guys!! Six more days until I have a KINDERGARTNER…what the WHAT! I just…don’t even know. I’m sure I’ll have a long-winded post about how fast kids grow up next week so I’ll save it for then, but…it’s getting real around here. In unrelated news, I broke my phone (not once, not twice, but three times…)…

Grandparents Day Printables

Grandparents Day Printables

Grandparents Day is coming up on September 7, 2014. Honestly, we are kind of hit-or-miss with this holiday. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day seem sufficient to me, but this year I thought I’d take a little extra effort to make something fun and easy for Grandparents Day. What I came up with was a Grandparents…

Breastfeeding Resources for New Moms

Last week was World Breastfeeding Week. For the last several years, I’ve meant to write a post full of breastfeeding resources for new moms who might be struggling with breastfeeding, and every year World Breastfeeding Week comes and goes and I don’t get my post written.

Tickled Pink Beet Juice for Kids

“Tickled Pink” Kid-Friendly Juice Recipe

I don’t ever recall eating beets as a child. In fact, the first time I ever remember trying beets, I was pregnant with Jack…which means I was 30 years old! I didn’t like them, to be honest. I thought they tasted like…dirt. So I didn’t really feel much inspiration to give them another go, despite their…
