Halloween is many kids favorite holiday. My three year old asked all year long when she was going to be able to dress up and get candy, and much to her delight, that time is now! My neighborhood is still doing both trick or treats and, the newly popular, trunk or treats, so we won't be missing out on those (socially distanced, of course) but there are so many other fun activities you and your family can do this time of year.
It's officially Fall! With that comes a slew of fun family activities geared towards cooling temperatures, beautiful colors, and an array of amazing flavors.
I come from a small town, so we have a ton of little mom and pop shops. It was ingrained in me early to shop local and shop small. Yes, we have a Walmart and the next town over a Target, but for a good chunk of things, we try to shop our local small shops.
Being a mom is hard work. We're warned before we have kids that it's the hardest, but best, job we could ever have, and gosh is that so darn true!
The school year is fast approaching (and for many has already begun), and with that can come a lot of anxiety. Throw in a national pandemic, and you can assume that many moms, dads, and kiddos are really feeling the nerves.
With Cody and I just celebrating our fifth anniversary, I thought it would only be fitting to do a post about our favorite dates.
When my oldest was a baby, she had terrible cradle cap (or cradle crap, as we affectionately call it in our home). I felt like I tried everything, but was at my wits end.
I never in a million years thought I would be a “baby wearer.” Structured carriers seemed uncomfortable, ring slings were confusing, and wraps looked like a LOT of fabric.
I have days I feel like a rockstar mom, a great wife, and a good friend. Today wasn’t one of those days. And that’s ok.
Knowing what to get a kid for their birthday is tough. Knowing what to get a ONE year old, who can't really talk or express what they want, is even harder! My daughter is juuuuust about to turn one, so I knew people would be asking what they could get her. I looked up list after list, toy after toy, trying to figure out what in the heck you give a one year old.
