Toddler Activities by Age (Indoor and Outdoor)

This is a list of activities I’m compiling, not just for other parents or daycare providers out there, but for myself as well. It will be something that I continue to add to as I brainstorm more ideas, and refer to it when I need ideas. (Also, the ages on the list will increase as…

Big update – alternatively titled I’m not dead.

I can’t believe I haven’t had the energy to post anything in 6 months.  Where do I start? I’m 34 weeks, 5 days pregnant today.  4 or 5 more weeks (or less) and I’ll have a new baby boy.  Yes, boy!  We are very excited.  Neely and I are naming him Keelan (Gaelic, meaning small…

Jedi Camp: Day 2

“Mom? Our master, Obi Wan, has a cell phone.” “Yeah?” “Do you think that means he’s not the real Obi Wan?” “I think it means everyone has a cell phone.” “I don’t know…” “It’s probably because he’s in the future.” “Oh, yeah! You’re right, Mom. This is the future!”

Heartbroken

This has been a very challenging few days – not for me personally, but tragedies affect me differently now that I am a parent, and I feel sick and heartbroken when people I barely know or have never even met are going through tough times. I am truly feeling at a loss this week because…

Cultivate My Plate

(Okay, so that only half makes sense.  Mostly, it just rhymes.  And I like rhymes.  They’re catchy!) So, Memorial Day weekend was quite the plethora of celebratory activities. Namely, barbecues.  At one of those barbecues, Dustin saw our neighbor’s watermelon plant and began to have lust in his heart.  Maybe even his soul!  He needed…

Embrace the Camera

Emily’s blog is up and running again, which means she’s back to embracing the camera. Hopefully she is feeling much, much better these days. Or, at the very least, feeling human again. Sometimes making beautiful babies is hard work, you guys! There is a tiny little community center in our neighborhood. It was built in…

I can you hear in my head now.

…and for the record, getting on to me never does any good. I totally never posted my Sunday Scrapbooking. I kept thinking, “Dangit! I only made 2 pages, and I’m actually not crazy about either one, so I’m just not wasting my time.” But, um, I made three pages last week, and I kinda really…

The Weekend in Photos

Today, I want to tell you about my weekend. More specifically, Sunday, because Saturday was spent watching movies, sweating my butt off at a zumba class, and driving all over NE Florida looking for a place to eat dinner (we settled for Hooters, go figure). I’m feeling a little lazy today though, so I’m going…

Fairy Fun with Friends

My friend Melissa had a charming idea to make a fairy house with her daughter. They covered a box with some leftover hot pink contact paper and various decorations and put it outside for the night. A real fairy came overnight and left “pixie dust” behind. The excitement was contagious, as her daughter called mine…
