How To Explain The Meaning Of Easter To Your Toddler

How To Explain The Meaning of Easter To Your Toddler

In March I wrote a super successful post about How to Explain The Spirit Of St. Patrick’s Day To Your Toddler. I received overwhelmingly positive feedback. I also learned so much from doing the post about St. Patrick’s Day. A recurring comment that I received was that I should create a similar post for each upcoming holiday. I think that is a fantastic idea! I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway and what a better way than to actually learn the true facts behind them. Today I will be sharing with you How to Explain The Meaning Of Easter To Your Toddler.

How To Spring Clean Your Bathroom With Baby’s Safety In Mind

How To Spring Clean Your Bathroom With Baby's Safety In MindSpring Cleaning is not only about “Out With The Old” but it’s also about “In With The New.” In today’s post I’m going to be addressing something that I seriously didn’t even think would be an issue until my little Morgan began to walk: Bathroom Safety. She literally gets into everything. She wants to open every single cabinet and drawer. I love it because she is a natural explorer. But I worry that she will find something harmful. Whether it be a small object she can swallow or something toxic that can be hazardous.

How To Spring Clean Your Baby’s Closet

How to Spring Clean Your Baby's Closet

Cleaning your closet versus cleaning a baby’s closet is vastly different. For instance a baby is changing sizes every few months. We as adults don’t fluctuate all that often unless we are pregnant or dieting. In addition babies unlike adults are receiving clothes as gifts all the time from grandparents, neighbors, friends and from your late night impulse purchases. Lastly unlike adults who probably have 30-40 staples in their wardrobe, babies can have a 100 or so items. It gets to be a little daunting sorting through everything just to put an outfit together.

Mommy Why Am I Wearing Green?

I honestly don’t remember if I ever had St. Patrick’s day actually explained to me as a child. I do recall an episode of the Simpsons when Groundskeeper Willy was chasing all the snakes off of the playground alluding to St. Patrick. That does ring a bell. That must have been where I learned about it. Or, I’m positive we must have learned about it in school. Somehow I just grew up knowing that on March 17th I wear green.

Before having Morgan I was on a very steady minimalist kick. I was downsizing and organizing my way to a structured and peaceful home. Truly the one thing I just wasn’t prepared for with having a baby is that babies come with a lot of stuff! When I’m talking about a lot I mean times a hundred! We had bassinets, bibs, blankets, books, bottles, carriers, clothes, and toys everywhere!

I very much tried to control my anxiety which was brought on by this new found clutter. Then I discovered my first true life saver. The KidCo Go-Pod Infant Activity Seat. From then on I knew I unlocked the door to clutter freedom! The key was FOLDING!!! I would love to share with you the 5 Remarkable Folding Baby Products You Have to See. Let’s start with my first discovery.

If there is one thing that I am known for it’s my irrational need to be prepared. Expecting a baby made my compulsion kick into overdrive. I stress out easily if I am not prepared for something. Literally anything! So of course I took my pre-baby stockpiling to the extreme. Morgan is close to 15 months now and I’m still good on most of our necessities! I learned a lot from creating my stockpile. In this post I want to share with you the best pre-baby stockpile must haves.

The biggest mistake I made when I packed for the hospital was that I must have assumed I was going to the Ritz Carlton. I packed literally my entire house including such laughable items as a straightening iron and my lululemon yoga pants. Boy did reality really hit hard after I gave birth. The last thing I wanted to do was, well….anything! Reflecting on my 3 day hospital stay I realized that there was little to nothing that I used from my hospital bag. The items I did however use were vital.
