Parenting

My take on the joys and difficulties of being a parent, here I am not pretending to know it all… at all just trying to figure it out like every other parent on the planet and have some fun doing it. :)

Interactive Toddler Books from Campbell {Children’s Book Review}

It’s no secret we are massive book fans, Daniel will not go to bed without a bedtime story! Currently we are only reading Daddy Long Legs and Cake before bed. Talking about books with your toddler is such an important part of cultivating their love for books in the long run. Apart from good habits, anything that keeps Daniel and Emilie away from the TV from a few extra minutes brings my heart much joy! Couple good habits with a book that not only teaches them to love reading, but acts as an interactive link so that they too can take part in the story and you have a winner!

Calling all Sports Moms! Team Up and WIN with BOS Sport!

When I became a mother, one of the main things I wanted to be was your typical – “Soccer Mom”. You know the ones I mean – racing off between sports, practices and matches. Maybe it was because my parents worked a lot and it was something I valued? But I ended up not being that mom. (Waaaap waaaap waaahhhh) Not because my hearts not in it, my work and lifestyle don’t always allow for the freedom you need as a “soccer mom”. That doesn’t mean however that I don’t encourage Emilie to play and take part in sport! Emilie LOVES being outdoors and playing sports is something she really enjoys. She plays all the sports she possibly can, even though she isn’t really in the A Team’s for any of them.

My son is 2 and we are still co-sleeping! Here is why!

Co-sleeping has received A LOT of flack of the years, and although I was very aware of the dangers we opted for it for 98% of his first two years. The 2% of time we didn’t, we had a Moses crib next to the bed in which he slept, and to my dismay a few nights when we were trying to get him to sleep in his own room. Around 18 months, I decided that Daniel had to soon become more independent, this bed sleeping was getting a bit much. I hadn’t slept next to my husband in 18months. The struggle was real!

Ottoline and the Purple Fox {Children’s Book Review}

The holidays proved to not be the perfect time for Emilie to read, as much as she enjoys escaping into another world, she needs a little coaxing. Gasp! I know, as much as I constantly push the culture of book-lovers in our home, and we are positively excited about new releases and the absolute privileged to see them before they are on the shelves. Getting a preteen to read can be challenging, especially when the world has so many other stimulants that are easier to engross into. “Ottoline and the Purple Fox” was the perfect easy read for Emilie to use to get back into things during the holidays.
