CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOKS ABOUT GARDENING

June 19, 2017
garden themed children's books, flowers and vegetables

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is seeing my plants and gardens grow. Teddy loves being outside. It relaxes him, entertains him, gives him a little dose of Vitamin D, but on of the best parts is the opportunity for sensory learning experiences. There are so many colors, textures, smells, tastes and sounds you can hear in the garden. Teddy loves to point at the flowers and I will tell him what color it is and…

SMILE BRILLIANT REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

June 13, 2017

Taking care of another human is exhausting. It’s hard to find the time to take care of yourself. From the time I wake up am woken up, until about 8PM my day revolves around Teddy.

I love television. If binge watching was an Olympic sport, I could have been a gold medalist. Since I became a mom my binge watching days are over. I try not to have the TV on too much around Teddy and when he naps I have too much to do around the house. If I do have the TV on I can’t really focus on what is going on, so watching anything too heavy is out of the question. Now, I prefer…

Creative Monthly Chalkboard Baby Photographs

May 23, 2017

I wanted to do something creative for Teddy’s monthly baby pictures. I have a background in art, and I wanted pictures that combined drawing and photography. I’ve seen sidewalk chalk drawings with kids done before, but I wanted to put a new spin on it! I love thinking of new and funny ideas every month, and until about 10 months Teddy loved posing for them. Taking these monthly chalkboard photographs are easier than you might think, and won’t cost you much…
