Traveling with kids – Plane Rides

November 21, 2022
Our very first family vacation traveling via airplane.

Our recent experience with RSV

November 14, 2022
Our family just went through RSV, and it was the hardest thing we have had to deal with so far. 

Teething

September 26, 2022
To me, teething is one of the hardest things to go through for little ones. They are in pain due to the gums cutting open. They cannot tell you what is going on, and there is not a ton that we can do to help them get through it.

Water Play

September 19, 2022
With these hot summers comes the need to find ways to cool off. Our family loves to play in the water, and I am not saying going to a lake or stream/river somewhere (which are also great options), I am talking about playing in the backyard. Now, because I have two young children who I must keep very close eyes on when playing near any water, it is much easier for me to give them a hose in the backyard and let them play with it. I found this to be the easiest way to keep them cool and allow them to play outside at home.

Camping with Kids

August 15, 2022
Let me tell you about a few things that have been so great for us to have while camping to make it easier with young children. This list is stuff that we have figured out along the last few years of camping with kids, and we are still constantly learning, so take what I say with a grain of salt and do some trial and error to figure out what works for your family.

Strider Balance Bike – One of our favorite toys!

August 8, 2022
I never realized how wonderful that bike would be when we got it for him. Even though it did take him a little while to get comfortable riding it, he is now gliding, balancing, and breaking with his feet like a pro.

Full Babyproofing Mode

May 16, 2022
We are constantly babyproofing and learning with our kids about what we can do to ensure that they are safe within our own home. It is challenging, and we cannot prevent all trips and falls, but we can protect them in other ways.
