4 Tips for Library Story Time with Baby

Being a stay-at-home mom has caused me to look for all kinds of free baby/toddler-friendly activities to entertain my kids. Since we love reading books so much one of our favorite weekly activities is story time at the library.

My kids love getting out of the house but it can be a challenge keeping them in line at the library. Over time I’ve picked up some tips that have really helped us to enjoy story time. 

The Only Stroller You Will Ever Need

I’m always amazed with how far strollers have come. There are some really amazing strollers out there. They do it all and come with every feature you can imagine. I won’t even tell you how many strollers I’ve purchased in my three years of motherhood. It’s embarrassing. Every time I turned around there was a bigger and better stroller – and I had to have it!

But I’ve learned now how foolish that was because there is really only one stroller that has stood the test of time.

But when winter comes around, I’m laughing all the way to the beach as those same friends are trying to dig their cars out of the snow. 

Comforting Our Toddler Through His First Major Booboo

I knew the day I gave birth to a baby boy I was in for at least one trip to the doctor with a major booboo. Boys just have those adventurous spirits about them; they are fearless, will climb anything, jump from anywhere and love to rough-house. I love this about having boys but it makes me nervous, and for good reason.
