toddler fun roller coaster

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own. You guys, I can say without a doubt, that this summer has been the best.

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 [...]

Traveling with two kids

The following post is sponsored by buybuy BABY as part of the Babyhood Influencer Network :) We're at a glorious stage of baby/toddlerhood where we can pack up with little effort and head out for fun daily outings without bringing along all of our earthly possessions.

clean and simple "mom style"

Does anybody else get tired of preparing the same old snacks for their kiddos? Well I certainly do! And recently I've gotten in the habit of grabbing not so healthy options for the sake of convenience. But a well-rounded snack doesn't have to be complicated! When OXO Tot sent me a few pieces from their [...]

  The following post is sponsored by buybuy BABY  Eleanor's little 2 year old world was rocked with the birth of Everly in April, but little did she know, that was only the beginning... Eight months later, Everly is on the move and we've had to make some BIG adjustments in our house. Gone are [...]

Thanks to buybuy BABY for sponsoring this post! When I put together my baby registry for Eleanor, I thought I had a fairly good idea of what products made the most sense for our family. I tried to make smart decisions, and overall, I was very happy with our baby gear. However, when I found [...]
