The Dreaded Belly Shot

It’s time again for a belly shot!  Let’s just say that the “cute” stage is officially gone.  My arms, butt, thighs, and face are feeling just as pregnant as my belly.  Yes, I am larger and in charger.  Welcome to the third trimester. I should probably add my back to the list of extraneous pregnant…

Weekend Reuse It: Water Bottles

If you must get your water from little plastic bottles, why not make something useful out of them when you’re done? Here are instructions I posted previously for making shaker bottles for your infant and toddler to explore. The link above goes to my original post, nearly two years old, about shaker bottles. I wanted…

Early Birthday

With all the snow we’ve had this week, our plans were ruined for a birthday for Miss Haven. She wanted to go to the movies and dinner and had this whole big plan. Her backup plan was to go to Bob Evan’s (one of her favorite places) and get a free birthday meal, which is…

A battle of wills that I know I can’t win.

I command you to ignore any cuteness. Now, did you hear those “Nnnnnno!”s?  Oh. Em. Gee. I hear that ALL day about everything. Every blessed little thing. If you argue with her no, she starts screaming, and hitting, and head butting, and slapping. The Pudding Pie spend a lot of time in time out at…

Peanut Butter Pinecone Birdfeeders

Grab some pinecones, peanut butter, and a cup full of bird seed, and you’ve got the ingredients for some good old fashioned homemade bird feeders. It’s a winter tradition in our house (along with our regular feeders), and these are the months wild birds need the most help finding food. Tie to the branches of…

A Tribute to my son, Professional Cloth Diaper Model

I am sad to say the time has come.  My toddler is passing the torch of video cloth diaper modeling to his younger brother.  He first appeared in a video in April 2009.  He was 4.5 months old.  Since then, he has been in almost all of my 81 video reviews.  At times I was…

Striking gold (or green!)

You can teach kids long division, and you can drill them in handwriting. You can ask them to write a description, learn to spell, or even read a science chapter about animals. Chances are none of that will be too exciting for them, and if any of it sticks around, you should consider yourself lucky….
