How often have you stopped yourself from acting like a complete goof-ball around your little ones? How may times have you gotten so caught up in the act of ‘grown-up’ parenting, daily responsibilities and the stress that comes along with it all?
Lately, those two down there have reminded me of how very important it is to just. Let. Go.
It turns out my baby is officially no longer a baby. “Pink” turned 2 last week. For some reason I was obsessed with the idea of planning a ladybug party. The thing is, I’m not all that crafty. (Pinterest gives me major anxiety!) Oh, I’ve got big ideas, but I know that when it comes down to reality, I have to keep it simple. So I did. And it the party turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate my sweet little ladybug.
If I could do these things, just about anybody can. Really.
Last week, my husband and I took a much needed child-free trip and we headed to NYC from Washington, D.C. One of the stops we made while in the Big Apple was at the “Expect the Magic” Disney Baby event where guests got a sneak peek of new products along with a few Disney favorites. Fellow blogger Michelle will be giving you the latest on the OH SO ADORABLE Minnie line — which I am going gaga over!
Now I’m excited to show you the Monsters, Inc. Nursery Collection. At first glance we all instantly think it is very boy centered, but there are some pops of purple and pink that are perfect for girls! Take a look at the nursery collection including a few must-have baby accessories that your little one won’t want to nap without.
My favorite product? The new Disney Glow in the Dark Paint — talk about magical!
For National Photography Month, I sat down with North Shore, Mass. professional photographer Kerry Goodwin to talk about her essential advice and newborn photography tips for parents when photographing baby and hiring a professional photographer to capture the magic of their newborn.
A few times a week after a long hard day of playing, all four of my little grubby monkeys go upstairs for a relay race of scrub-a-dub-dubbing in the tub before bedtime. Typically baby Paul is first, and he’s immediately followed by the older three, ending with my 8 year old taking a lukewarm shower.
When it’s all said it done, the kids are clean and the bathroom looks like a hurricane hit.
Baby Paul? He LOVES the tub. He kicks, he plays, he splashes and squeals. Honestly, the kid would slip and slide around in the water all night if I let him, and I probably would if I didn’t have three others waiting for their turn. Because of his tub love, I was super excited to haul out our favorite backyard blow-up pool for him to enjoy.
