Ready or Not: Bob’s Birth Story

During my pregnancy, Mr. Rosenberg, kept me supplied with the white bread sandwiches I was craving. He didn’t complain when our bed was turned into a repository for oddly shaped body pillows. He played the guitar and sang, “I Love You a Bushel and a Peck,” to me and The Tummy. He was on board…

Potty Training is no joke. We had two ramp-ups to potty training that both ended in a crabby toddler and over-stressed parents. Last spring break we did the whole “lets just hang out naked and wait for the potty bell to go off every 10 minutes” approach. Sprocket was very confused by the pee coming…

Calming Bottles

What I love about these Calming Bottles is how simple they are to make. You can make them yourself in a few minutes or have a toddler/preschooler help with the process. For a younger child, these glitter bottles make a great sensory toy. Kids get enthralled watching the glitter swirl around. If your kids are…
