Our Favorite Chew-Proof Baby Books

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me the Dumbo Soft Book for free.

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.

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.
