Head-wraps and headbands. The saving grace of many a busy mama come early morning school drop-offs and/or strolls to the park. As a mother with long, finicky hair, there just isn’t enough time everyday to primp and preen in the mirror. I’m all about quick, good-looking accessories that help draw attention away from the fact that maybe I didn’t have time to wash my hair that day.
Now that the cold weather is upon us (where I live anyway), warmth is also important. So I hacked this Celtic knot head-warmer that I’ve been seeing a lot of (and adore) thinking ahead to some of the gifts I’d like to make for family and friends. I especially love that these headbands look adorable on babies and toddlers too, making this a wonderful gift to make for new moms and their little gals!

But when you arrive at the park as the sun is setting, just in time to watch a 16-month-old’s eyes light up at the sight of her first parade? It’s all worth it.
If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland with your baby in tow, here are a few tips/tricks that made our trek fun, memorable and – not surprisingly – magical:

My little Zaynab has two sets of grandparents — one local set in California, and the other is several thousand miles away in Palestine. This past September, we came to Palestine for an extended visit, and Z got the chance to finally meet her grandparents for the first time ever. It was love at first sight for everyone involved.

Because we love to travel as a family and want it to be fun for everyone, we’ve figured out ways to simplify things so that we aren’t always scrambling and stressed out. Here are the top five ways we have simplified things for travel with our toddler.
