Reflections On The Bond Between Mother and Child

Reflections On The Bond Between Mother & Child.

There is a bond that exists like no other, there is a love that transcends all others, it is the bond and love between a mother and child. Today we share with you this incredible letter from a mother to a daughter that will enhance your appreciation for life and increase your gratitude for your mom. Have a wonderful Mother's Day Celebration!

Letter From A Mother To A Daughter:
"My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

Mothers Day Gifts Fit For A Queen

Mother's Day Gifts Fit For A Queen.

We welcome the month of May with great excitement since it is the month when we get to celebrate the woman responsible for giving us life, bringing us into the world and loving us unconditionally from day one.

Chic Nursery Decor and Gifts For Baby

Chic Nursery Decor & Gifts For Baby.

When the hubby and I found out that we were expecting we chose to not find out the sex of our baby and while many may find hosting a baby shower and decorating a nursery difficult without knowing the baby's gender we chose to embrace the element of surprise and wonderful excitement that comes with meeting your baby for the first time at birth.

We decorated our baby nursery in neutral colors, chose a custom painted silver grey crib, changing table, rocking chair and dresser and left everything else quite neutral in shades of white and ivory. We added texture with faux fur rugs, a quilted changing pad and throw pillows. While playful wall art and cute metallic animals figurines added visual interest.

Now that the light, airy and simple but sophisticated decor trend is finally being embraced in kids rooms and nurseries, we are sharing our favorite finds to help you get the look. Whether you are a mom-to-be or know someone who is expecting, these chic and neutral nursery decor and newborn essentials will make the perfect addition to your baby shower gift list or a beautiful welcome baby present..

Make Exploring Safe For Your Little Mover

How To Make Exploring Safe For Your Little Mover.

Kids grow up so fast one minute we were overjoyed and impatient to meet our baby and then the next minute he was holding on to tables and chairs to lift himself and before we knew it, we had to baby proof every room because our former eat, sleep and poop baby was now a curious Little Mover who enjoys chasing his balls and moving his trains and cars around.

Your home is most likely the place your baby will learn to crawl or take his or her first steps. Ensuring that it is safe and baby proof will not only give you peace of mind but will make for a fun and comfortable learning and development environment for your growing baby or toddler.
Below we are sharing the safety checklist that we used to baby proof our home. As well as a few vital tips we learned along the way that parents-to-be as well as experienced moms and dads can benefit from...

Embracing Fatherhood and Celebrating Dads with Gerber.

Embracing Fatherhood and Celebrating Dads with Gerber.
Year after a year it feels like we make a big deal when it comes to celebrating Mother's Day while dads get left out in the cold. For years now the role that men play in helping to raise their children has been changing and daddy time is no longer reserved for just sports games and birthday parties.

When men are given the chance to take a more active role in their children's lives and are involved in the process of caring for, nurturing, teaching and even feeding their little ones from conception and onward, it naturally changes the type of bond and the strength of the connection that they share with their children in a very positive way.

One of my fondest memories from my early childhood was of my dad braiding my hair and taking care of me when my mom was sick. That particular memory stuck with me because it's not very often that you hear about Dads who can braid their daughter's hair. I can't vouch for the quality of the braid but it was the mere act of his stepping up and taking on the role that my mom usually played wholeheartedly.

While I may not remember much from that time of my life, I remember that moment and it stands out in an amazing way. Now that I think back on it, I can also see how that moment influenced my decision about the character of and the type of man that I would choose to marry.

Back To School Time Saving Tips

Back To School Time Saving Tips
Tracking Pixel

Being a parent has it's challenges and it is always rewarding when someone recognizes your effort, the time we put in, the hard work we do and most importantly how even in the moments when we are totally exhausted and have nothing else to give we somehow find the strength to wake up, love and care for our children.

We ignore all the constraints, obstacles and challenges from sleeplessness to exhaustion, especially during back to school when it feels like there is not enough time in the day to do it all. These are the moments when we need a pat on the back and to hear three up-lifting words "you're Doin Good".

This is why we have teamed up with Minute Maid® to remind each and every mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and foster parents who are nurturing, raising and grooming our precious little citizens of humanity that they are "Doin Good!"

The Perfect Gadgets For Kids.

The Perfect Gadgets For Kids.

(This guest post is brought to you by our sponsor Gazelle).

In the ever-changing – and ever-breaking – era of technology, phones are often the first to be replaced. Cracked screens, water damage and everyday wear and tear contribute to a constant need for new devices.

The average buyer is not the only offender; it’s children that need to be watched with their gadgets while learning the responsibility of owning a new electronic. For parents looking to fit their child with a first device, a new iPhone may not be the best choice – and for good reason...

Shows To Watch: Amazon's New Annedroids Children's Series.

Shows To Watch: Amazon's New Annedroids Children's Series.

'Created by Emmy-nominated JJ Johnson (Dino Dan) and Sinking Ship Entertainment, and aimed at children aged four through seven, Annedroids is a live-action adventure series following a young female genius, her human friends, android assistants and the amazing scientific discoveries they make while undertaking the biggest experiment of them all: growing up.'

It was remarkable to spend family time watching Annedroids, a series that not only featured a female lead actress but also encouraged children to think outside the box. Taking them far beyond the typical fairy tales stories and instead portraying real life scenarios where children use their imagination and intelligence to create things that are not only cool but groundbreaking. 

The fact that Annedroids encourages children to use their knowledge of science makes it informative, a learning medium as well as fun! Click here to join the fun and catch up on the previous episodes of Annedroids and read on to see cool clips from the series...

How To Prepare Your Daughter for Pageants.

How To Prepare Your Daughter for Pageants.

Getting your daughter ready for her first pageant requires planning. There are a lot of elements that go into creating a pageant winner, and getting your family prepared is an important step in the process.

1. Start Small
If you want to start your daughter in pageants, start with local events that are held in smaller venues. These smaller pageants are a great way for her to get her start and to get used to being on stage. Judges are often a bit more lax on the requirements for local pageants, so it is a good chance to get in some good practice before moving on to larger state and national pageants. 

A Smiling Milestone: Introducing Your Little One To Oral Care.

A Smiling Milestone: Introducing Your Little One To Oral Care.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Orajel Kids.
Now that our little one has grown his little pearly whites, eight for a cute smile and mischievous toothy grin and four more to help him chew on the apples, pears and other foods that he is newly discovering and enjoying so much, especially baby wheat and oatmeal cookies. Simply rubbing his gums with a washcloth no longer works as well and we had to start considering better options for oral care.

The biggest question in our minds was how do we get a still teething toddler to enjoy brushing his teeth? How do you convince a toddler that placing this plastic object (a toothbrush) in his mouth, which he could not take a bite out off and would not taste delicious like the foods he's been sampling is actually a good thing for him? Ahhhh the dilemmas of new parents.

We did a little research on the internet, browsed through some other parent friendly blogs and even asked for a little advice from our family and friends who were parents as well. At the end of it all we realized that it was much easier than we had expected and all our fussing was much-a-do about nothing.
