I don’t think I ever meant to purposely use candy as a bartering tool with my toddler but some how it has become a last ditch go-to source to either ease a situation, calm a tantrum or change his focus to something else. It isn’t always my first option though, however for my dad – grandpa, he quickly learned that sweets are the way to my son’s heart.
I believe this a case of life imitating art. Is that how the saying goes? Or it could just be that I am on my laptop so often around my son that as soon as I step away, he steps in? If only he could really type and finish off a few of my tasks. Some days I could really use an assistant to syndicate blog posts, mingle on social media, and pin my posts, but alas, there are labor laws against blogger babies, no?
Valentine’s Day is always special in our home, as it is my birthday! This year I will be twenty nine years old. And my birthday happens to be KJ’s half birthday! He will be two and a half years old.
It doesn’t always take a huge party to celebrate fun occasions. Here is a fun and easy breakfast idea to ring in Valentine’s Day with your little ones!
There are times when you stop and realize that you just need a getaway and soon!! Life can start to speed up quickly and feel like it’s full of places to go, tasks to finish and schedules, schedules, schedules! My husband and I spent some time together recently and realized we both needed an un-plugged mini getaway. No extra people, just Jon, myself and Soren. A time to slow down and be together as a family.
So we booked a cabin in the mountains and have our calendars marked for our mini vacation! We could not be more excited! Not only will this be our first trip as just a family or three but it will also be our time to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary!
