This post is sponsored by Weight Watchers and The Motherhood. I received a 3-month trial subscription to Weight Watchers Online. However, all opinions are my own. I remember a time long long ago… ok, well 5 years ago… when I could buy a magazine, find a comfy place to sit – sometimes even in the bath tub – and read that baby cover to cover. Now I’m a mom and if you are a mom too then you know “ain’t nobody got time for that!” If I tried to sit down and read a magazine cover to cover now I … …..
I have always had a fondness for books from the time I was a little one and have wanted to instill that same love for books in my children as well. Alleigh and Kaelyn’s little library has been growing over the past few years and with Christmas quickly approaching some new books will make a perfect gift for them both and even Willow too. At first glance a book may not seem like an exciting gift for young children but there is so much more to this gift than merely promoting reading – you will also be giving the gift … …..
Kaelyn absolutely loves the television show Peppa Pig. Never heard of her? Well then you must be living under a muddy puddle, hehe! Peppa lives in the United Kingdom with Mommy Pig, Daddy Pig, and her brother George who all speak in charming British accents. The Peppa Pig show takes little munchkins on many adventures with Peppa, her family, and friends then always ends with loud snorts of laughter that make them all fall down – Kaelyn especially loves this part! And so when I heard that Peppa Pig toys, books, and DVD’s were going to be available at Toys … …..
With soon to be three girls in our home we have gone through tons of toys, but I am always on the look out for new toys to intrigue the girls – especially ones that will spark their imagination without the use of batteries or being plugged into the wall. I was so excited when I stumbled upon Geared for Imagination which is an Ohio based creator and distributor of high quality toys. In fact they are located about a half hour from me which I thought was pretty awesome! Geared for Imagination was founded in 2009 by two dads … …..
I absolutely love personalized gifts. And since I chose to give my girls names that are rather hard… more like impossible… to find pre-made, personalized gifts are the only way I can get items with their names on them. In case you are wondering their names are really not Dilly, Sugar, and Baby Girl, hehe. And so when I found “I See Me! Personalized Children’s Books” I knew I had to have one for Baby Girl. At I See Me! you can find all sorts of books that can be personalized for that special little one in your life, but … …..
This morning I had a moment that made me go “hmmmmmm??”. My neighbor across the street recently had shoulder surgery and asked if I could drive her oldest daughter to middle school each morning which I had no problem with, so for the past two weeks I have been driving her to school and having little bits of chit chat. Today she hops in the car and has a book in her hand that immediately caught my attention…. yes the one on the right. And so I start talking about how I have heard this is a really good book … …..
We have been very blessed with two little girls that have given us very little issue with sleeping in their own beds. Dilly co-slept with us to about 10 months and then transitioned to a crib in her room and finally to a toddler bed at 18 months. Sugar slept in a co-sleeper til she could roll over and then moved to a crib in our bedroom. At approximately 11 months she moved into a crib in her own bedroom. And recently with moving the girls upstairs they have begun sharing a room. I was a bit concerned that we … …..
Earth Day is right around the corner and though I believe we should treat every day like it’s Earth Day perhaps you could use that day as a way to introduce greener living to the little ones in your life. I have made it a point to have a large selection of books available to Dilly and Sugar which has worked out great because they love being read to as well as flipping through books themselves to look at the pictures and “read.” I want to take this opportunity to tell you about an awesome book that is absolutely perfect … …..
A couple weeks ago I stopped by the local breast feeding center to pick up some fluffy presents for my friend who writes at “Anderson’s Angels” baby shower. I ended up getting her a super cute polka dot FuzziBunz diaper and a Planet Wise pail liner. While there I also decided to nurse Sugar since they have a super accurate scale. While nursing her I glanced over and saw an assortment of children’s books to keep older munchkins occupied while mom feeds their siblings. On the top of the pile was a book entitled Mama’s Milk and I immediately picked … …..
One thing I want to pass on to my kids is my love of reading. Most of my adult level reading gets done on the kindle app on my droid in the wee hours of the morning nursing Sugar – it’s the only way I can stay awake, but I absolutely love reading books to Dilly and Sugar. A quick tip to build your little one’s library: On the invitation to the baby shower/1st Birthday ask guests to sign a book instead of a card! Dilly’s library grew so quick by doing this and when reading her books we can … …..
