Sensory Bins for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Sensory Bins for Toddlers and Preschoolers

In my quest to feel like I’m a good mama (seriously) I’ve been trying to do more hands-on activities with my kiddos. I’m a working mama, so our evenings are packed pretty tight with dinner, bath, and our bedtime routine with not much time for play. However, with a couple of snow days under our [...]

Brody’s Favorite Books - Age 3

Brody’s Favorite Books – Age 3

Our little guy has always been a reader. When he was a baby and I was a SAHM, I would read books to him before every nap and before bed to try to establish a bedtime routine. We’d read in his room, with him on the Boppy pillow looking at me (or more likely the [...]

Enrolling Your Child In Dance Class

Enrolling Your Child In Dance Class

I grew up dancing. It has always been my favorite thing to do and although there were a few times I had thought about quitting early on, my mom encouraged me to stick through it, and I’m glad I did. I started out around second grade with tap dancing and gymnastics. Throughout the years, I [...]

Crayola Twistables Crayons Review

Crayola Twistables Crayons Review

Coloring is a source of great delight for my daughter. She can scribble and scribble all day! However, she isn’t very gentle with her crayons and it upsets her when they break (even though she intentionally smashes them onto the table, and then sometimes even steps on them). Someone suggested that I try the new [...]

Mega Bloks Review

Mega Bloks Review

Playing with her Mega Bloks is my daughter’s new favorite pastime. We gave them to her on Christmas morning and she’s been obsessed ever since. At first, she just threw them and hit them against each other because she loved the noise that they made. Then, she would randomly stack them on each other with [...]
