The Unique Way We're Preparing Our Toddler For a New Baby

The weeks are quickly ticking away leading up to the arrival of our new baby and aside from all of the usual getting ready for baby type tasks, we’ve also been in the process of preparing our toddler for the changes that are going to take place. I’ve read up on tips from others and tried to implement as many as possible, but I still didn’t feel like any of my tactics were working to get my daughter excited about the birth of her baby brother. When we would ask her about her baby brother she would either brush us off or respond with, “No. I don’t manna baby brother.

How to Peel a Pineapple and Z's Favorite Way to Eat It

I’ve been intimidated by fresh pineapple pretty much my entire life. When I was younger, fresh pineapple would make my tongue feel funny. When I grew up, I just never knew how to get into that thing. Finally I decided I might as well just hit up the internet and search how to cut a pineapple. It couldn’t be that hard. And you know what? It isn’t! I can’t believe how long I avoided buying fresh pineapple when it’s so easy to prepare. The taste is by far more superior to the canned variety I always used to be.
