Potty Training Chronicles

November 27, 2018

This post is sponsored by Summer Infant. All thoughts & opinions are my own.   Our smart little babes grow up so fast and before we know it, they start giving us soft hints that they may be ready to potty train. Cora had started giving me hints by being super intrigued by the “big” potty that mommy & daddy used, by periodically telling me when she went potty or…

November 6, 2018

In partnership with Tide   This world is full of bacteria, it’s just life ya know. You can be as clean & safe as physically possible but it’s just not going to happen. Maybe if you covered yourself in a huge bubble your whole life lol but even then I’m sure the germs & bacteria would find a way to get to you  😆 haha. But seriously, bacteria germs are…

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’gosh on behalf of Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.   The first thing that comes to mind when I think about OshKosh B’gosh is DEFINITELY Overalls! It’s their staple piece! OshKosh B’gosh has been making quality denim since 1985, yes…that’s right, 1985!!!

Babies, toddlers, kids of all ages are just plain messy..right?! Cora can make a full on disaster in less than a minute and this totally includes inside her diaper too 🙄 LOL.

Stuffed Animals Need Baths Too

July 25, 2018

  Every night Cora get’s a bath, minus the random crank-fest evening or late night dinner thing that throws our routine out the door LOL. Moms- you know what I mean! So basically every night I make sure my daughter is stripped of the germs of the day & going to bed nice and clean. At least, that’s what I thought until I started thinking about her sweet stuffed animals…

Toddler House Bed

Toddler House Bed
June 7, 2018

We recently upgraded Cora’s room at her grandparents house to having a Toddler Bed in it. I posted a photo on Instagram of it & received SOO many requests asking where we bought it, how do you make one, etc etc. And the truth is we didn’t buy it, Cora’s Grumpy (my dad) made it for her. We could probably start our own little business selling them from how many…

Toddler Berry Smoothie

May 31, 2018

When Cora first started eating actual food, she LOVED vegetables. She could eat an entire bowl of black olives, broccoli, or tomatoes. As she got older though & realized what other foods/flavors there were she stopped eating all the veggies. It seemed these days, I had to “trick” her to get more vegetables in her diet. So I started racking my brain to see what the best way to do…

What’s in My Toddler Diaper Bag?

May 3, 2018

  There are quite a few differences between what I had in Cora’s diaper bag when she was a newborn-to-1yr , to now what I have in it as a 16month old toddler. And the reality is, it’s always changing. She falls in love with a new toy, type of snack, or starts a new phase where I need different items inside. But I thought it would be fun to…

Balancing Work & Mom Life

March 20, 2018

As I mentioned in my first-ever blog post, I’m a full-time working mama. I work 8am-6pm 5 days a week, every week. It sucks lol!!! But hey that’s life! I wasn’t born a millionaire who can just stay home all the time & unfortunately we’re not in a situation where daddy works a great job so that I can be a stay-at-home mom. Maybe one day, but not right now.…
