What's In My Bag - Diaper Bag Essentials for the Toddler Mom

    WHAT’S IN MY BAG – TODDLER MOM EDITION

    As the seasons of Motherhood has changed, so have the things I often pack in my bag. Lately, I’ve been ditching the diaper bag and just grabbing my ToteSavvy bag to toss in my favorite straw market bag. One of the perks of being a toddler mom means toting around a few less things! The ToteSavvy is easier and lighter than my diaper bag and if I want, I can just toss it into the bottom of the stroller…

      I have been struggling beyond words lately (which some what explains my absence in this little space of mine) because I’ve been in the discipline dumps and recently experienced a HUGE parenting epiphany.

Up until a few months ago, I was almost overly confident in my parenting…

        PICKY PRESCHOOLER LUNCHES WITH HAPPY TOT YOGURT

        Raise your hand if you’ve ever packed your preschooler a lunch only to discover they suddenly don’t like a single thing you’ve packed! This has been an ongoing theme in our home lately and it can seriously make a mama a bit nutty! Speaking of nuts, our preschool is nut free… which, most are these days, and no nuts means no peanut butter so that rules out one of the four things my preschoolers will eat for lunch. Trying…

          PATIENT PARENTING | WHAT WORKS FOR ME

          Toddler tantrums are a force to be reckon’ with and lately, we’ve had our fair share, and patient parenting isn’t always on my mind. Between 2 toddlers learning and exerting independence and experimenting with boundaries, the meltdowns are so often, I’ve almost come to expect and anticipate them. One thing I’ve been working on that is OH SO IMPORTANT is keeping my cool when sh*t hits the fan, even at 90mph! Now, I’m no parenting expert but there’s a…

              5 REASONS WHY I LOVE THE CITY SELECT LUX | MOTHERHOOD

              A few years (whoa, that sounds weird haha) ago, I blogged a review on the Baby Jogger City Select Stroller and why we loved it for twins… to this day, it is still one of my most visited post and gets so much traffic from pinterest and google… It seems a lot of people are still wondering which double tandem stroller will best suit their needs.

              A recap of our halloween festivities this year and our DIY costume

                HAPPY HALLOWEEN | A DIY COSTUME

                HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you all had a fabulous time and didn’t suffer too hard from the post-halloween candy hangover. We had a blast trick or treating in our DIY costume with our friends this year and I was so surprised at how good the babes did!
