Mom Tips

When it comes to being a mom, there are no rulebooks…but there are ways to make it just a little bit easier. These helpful mom-to-mom tips offer ideas, inspiration, creative solutions, and a little laughter, too.

Surviving 3 Kids: A Trip to the Pool

I’m back today, sharing another post in my “Surviving 3 Kids” series here on Disney Baby. Today, let’s talk about a trip to the pool. No matter how many little ones you have, an afternoon at the pool can be a bit hectic. From keeping an eye on clumsy toddlers to avoiding the rowdy 12-year-olds (who don’t know to watch out for the clumsy toddlers,) it is a workout! This summer, we got a family pool pass and have been going a few times a week. Now that we’ve been at it for a month or so, I feel like I have a better idea on what to do and how to survive with three little ones at the pool…

Motherhood: The Hard Part

It’s taken me weeks to be able to sit down and put these words to the keys. Motherhood is hard. Really hard. While I love sharing with you all the magical moments, sharing the tough stuff is what makes all of this real. Being a parent isn’t a walk in the park. It gets tough.

What to Pack for Toddler Summer Camp

Next week, my 18-month old starts his toddler summer camp. We decided to only send him for one week as a way to get him prepared for when he officially starts “pre-school” in September.

The other day when I was talking to my husband, he asked me, “So what does Andres need to take to summer camp?”

My Favorite Potty Training Tips (and a Coupon!)

We’ve just begun to tiptoe into potty training territory, and I have to say, this has been one of the more daunting experiences in parenting thus far. Bee’s showing all of the signs that she no longer needs diapers (increased interest in the toilet, verbalizing when she needs to use the potty, etc.), but we’ve been on the go this summer and wrapping my head around the process has been tricky at best. So, I asked a few seasoned mamas how they tackled potty training their little ones and thought it might be fun to gather them all here for you! Enjoy!

5 Ways to Keep the 5 p.m. Crazies at Bay

I don’t know what it is about 5 p.m., but it seems like most children just seem to fall apart about that time.

Right as I’m trying to get the house picked up and dinner going, those little ones just want to be held, snuggled, or lay on the floor and cry.

5pm Crazies

Over the years, I’ve learned some tricks to make that hour of the day go a little more smoothly for all of us:
