Finding New Ways to Play

Finding New ways to Play with the Joovy Tricycoo

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own. I think one of the most beneficial parts of having play dates (other than getting to have an adult conversation with a fellow mom) is that I get to see how other parents interact with their kids. [...]

Avoid the Oops with Walmart.com

Thanks to SheSpeaks/Walmart for sponsoring this post! You guys, this may come as a shock, but I'm not a perfect mom. Like far, far, FAR from it. I've had more "oops" moments in the past 3 years than I can count. In fact, I remember my very first "oops" moment as a parent. The nurse [...]

Gift Idea: Personalized Books for Kids

I feel like I go through the same routine whenever I am in search of a gift... what can I get someone that means something? Every once in awhile I think of that perfect "something" to give as a special gift, and lately I've been on a kick giving personalized gifts to my loved ones. They're [...]

The 22 months that separate my two girls mean nothing to Everly. If Eleanor can do it, so can she! Once Everly started solids, she grew weary of spoon-feeding very quickly. She's [...]

Milwaukee Art Museum

Hello there! We survived our 2 week road trip with the girls, and it feels SO good to be home. Both kiddos picked up a couple of less than ideal habits over the course of the trip (aka Everly waking to eat THREE times per night), so we're taking some time to readjust back into our [...]

The Perfect Travel Dress from prAna

Things have been pretty quiet in this corner of the blogosphere - mostly due to the fact that our family has been on the road for almost 2 weeks straight. We spent some time with my sister and her family in Iowa City before heading up to our old stomping grounds in Milwaukee. Along the way, [...]
