Making Your Little One Feel Special When You're Away

My husband and I will be heading out on a little “babymoon” and it will be our first getaway without our daughter since before we came parents. She’ll be staying with her grandparents and I know they’re going to have a blast, but I still wanted to do a little something to make her feel special while we’re away and to let her know that we’re thinking of her. So I came up with a fun, little idea for these “Missing You” countdown bags.


My Secret Weapon for Flying with Little Ones

A few weeks ago, I flew alone with my two little girls (ages 1 and 3) from North Carolina to Las Vegas to visit my parents.

Traveling with Kids

Even with a direct flight, it was a 5 hour flight, and I was admittedly very nervous.

Because I was traveling alone, I wanted to pack as lightly as possible since I was the sole pack mule, and this included not stuffing my carry-on with entertainment for the plane.

Our First Overnight Away from Baby: He Made It (and We Did Too!)

A couple of weekends ago, we celebrated the wedding of our dear friends Cort and Sarah. It just so happened to be the weekend of our own wedding anniversary and their wedding was at a swanky hotel in Philadelphia – conveniently just a half hour away from all the grandparents. The stars had aligned for a perfect overnight getaway!

While Larry periodically travels overnight for work, that weekend was the first time I’d be overnight and away from Judah since he came home from the hospital nearly 8 months ago. I was nervous the week of our big overnight away, but everyone survived and we all managed to have a marvelous time!

If you’re thinking about an overnight away (or even just an extended date night out) here are my tips to help you prepare, stay sane, and actually enjoy yourself!

What's In My Diaper Bag

OK, so technically this isn’t a diaper bag. I retired my diaper bag long ago once I realized the magic of compartmentalizing and was able to return to my purse…albeit a much larger purse, but a purse nonetheless. I remember those early days when I had to tow along so many things when heading out for the day, so it’s nice to keep things more minimal with a toddler. Check out the contents of my diaper bag – the toddler essentials!

What's In My Diaper Bag

Diaper Bags That Don't Look Like Diaper Bags!

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that these diaper bags? They don’t look like diaper bags at all. In fact, there are a couple here that I would sport any day of the week; day or night.

I definitely still wear messenger style totes with one kid and one toddler because we all know that the need to carry drinks, snacks, toys, and a change of clothes doesn’t go away once the baby exits out of the baby stage!

I’ve taken the liberty to round up my favourite DB diaper bags at the moment, specifically those that will work for years to come, as I know you’ll need them to. Dads, listen up! There are some picks in here that you wouldn’t mind either. Just sayin’.
