Super Simple Spring Cleaning with Young Children

Last year I got a really bad case of spring cleaning fever. I’m the kind of person that doesn’t get the urge to clean very often, so when I do, I know I better run with it or I won’t do it. At the time, my girls were 19 months and 1 month old. I… Keep reading →

Dinner Prep CAN Be Manageable with Young Children

It’s that dreaded time of day, 4 o’clock, and you’re like, Oh, crap, what am I making for dinner? Just when you remember what you were going to make or when you decide what exactly to throw together, you’re reminded that you have little kids by a THUD! and a really loud WAAAAHHHH! That’s right….

Songs We Love: “A Bushel and a Peck”

One of my most favorite things about my 2 1/2 year old is that she sings full songs. Sometimes she even changes the lyrics just like her papi does! She sings the alphabet, “You Are My Sunshine”, “B-I-N-G-O”, and “Mary Had a Little Lamb” all without skipping a beat. I LOVE it! One of our… Keep reading →

How to Get Started with Baby Sign Language

I’m one of those stay-at-home moms that likes doing things the old-school way, like cloth diapering and making baby food. Makes sense then that I couldn’t help myself when I heard about baby sign language the first time. My baby was going to learn it and we were going to communicate before she could ever talk.

Our Christmas last year was pretty stark…when it comes to gift-giving. César got me nil, I gave César a coupon book that I made (which he still has never used!), and we gave Sofía cozy pajamas and a pink rolling backpack that came with a bear. That’s it. We didn’t even have a tree until… Keep reading →

Songs We Love: “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”

The past few weeks have been a joy to see Bella join me and Sofía in our action songs. She started clapping on her own, and she even grooves to the songs by moving her little body back and forth. So precious! © evgeniya_m / Dollar Photo Club Since it’s Halloween, I thought it would… Keep reading →

26 Awesome Halloween-Themed YouTube Shows for Toddlers and Preschoolers

I currently breastfeed my 9 month old about 3 hours each day. That’s 12.5% of my day! Now I understand why I can’t find time to scrub the floors and polish the silver! (hm hm, kidding. only kidding.) My toddler is awake during those three hours, and I’m a very unprepared mama. She’s not capable of… Keep reading →

Songs We Love: “The Wheels on the Bus”

You know the kind. The high school losers seniors who had to take the bus to school. Because their parents didn’t love them enough have money to buy them a car on their 16th birthday. And they had absolutely no life besides homework and a job. That was me! (Shyly raising my hand and sinking… Keep reading →

Toddler’s and Baby’s Summer Bucket List

Summertime is finally here! Since I have two kids under the age of two, I have to think of things to do outside that they can both enjoy. While I don’t love being outside, I know my kids do. It’s easier to have the ideas right in front of my face, on a piece of paper, so I don’t have to think… Keep reading →
