Toddler Toy Obsession

Welcome back to Toddler Tuesday! I am assuming if you have a toddler, you probably would love to know of a toy that your toddler will actually play with for more than five minutes. Well, if you have a little girl, I may be able to help you out. (more…)

Toddler Trouble

Easy Egg Waffles

Who doesn’t love waffles? We got a waffle maker this year for Christmas and have had so much fun with it. Who knew all the things you can make besides just regular waffles! We have made waffle grilled cheese and waffle peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in it. Most recently, we decided to try egg waffles. Even Gavin loved these and he usually will not eat eggs. (more…)

Toddler Transitions

This is by no means a parenting blog. I am definitely not here to give advice. I just want to share the struggles and moments in our life with a toddler.

If you do not have sleep issues with your baby or toddler, you are very fortunate. (more…)

Preschool Art Auction

I have to say I was very impressed! All of the proceeds are going to the charity, Bright Blessings. I loved this idea so much I wanted to share it with you! Here are some pictures of the artwork that was created.

What would have been the playroom in our old house was now the first room you saw when you walked into the front door. I am still working on this area, but it has come a long way. I wish I had a before picture. One project that went into this room was a reading nook. I found an idea on Pinterest that I really liked. The only problem was I didn’t know how to go about finding what was used. That is why I am going to provide you with details of what went into the creation of our reading nook. (more…)
