What to Pack in a Toddler Travel Bag for Summer

Want to have a fun and adventurous summer? Keep a toddler travel bag in your car, and you’ll be ready to hit the road in a jiffy! This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine. Summer is here, and I’m so excited! We had a pretty cold and wet spring here in Maine, so I am anxious to finally have some nice weather and get out of the house with my kids. During the summer months, I love to travel around our state. I’m not a fan of the snow, so I pretty much hibernate all winter long. When summer comes, I want to go, {CONTINUE READING…}

How to Prevent and Treat Tick Bites

This post was sponsored by Floating Hospital for Children as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. The weather is finally starting to warm up here in Maine, and I could not be happier. Last summer, my husband built a beautiful fire pit in the back yard, so we plan on spending a lot of time around it this year. We have quite a spacious back yard, and my kids, 2 and 4, love to run around and play outside all day long during the summer months. Our back yard is such a quiet, relaxing place where we love to spend time and unwind. We host parties all summer {CONTINUE READING…}

30 Children's Books About Dad

Kids and Dads will have fun bonding while reading these great books about Dad! Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I thought it would be fun to get my kids a few children’s books about Dad. My husband, John, is such a great father. He’s kind, funny, generous and loves to play with, and teach our children. As I type this post, he is showing them how to plant vegetable seeds. He always strives to include them in whatever activity he may be doing. John works so hard at his job, and always does his best to keep all of us safe and happy. He is truly amazing! I think John will love reading these children’s books about Dad with {CONTINUE READING…}

Get Your FREE Child Safety Kit

You NEED a Child Safety Kit! Do you have a child safety kit? If not, you should definitely look into getting one. In the United States and Canada, nearly 500,000 children are reported missing every year. Isn’t that a crazy and scary statistic?! It makes my heart sink just thinking about all of those poor children who have been torn away from the safe and loving arms of their parents. I can only imagine the pain and anger a parent must feel after this happens to them, too. I would just be beside myself if it ever happened to me. This post contains affiliate links and I may receive a commission if you make a purchase after clicking on a link in {CONTINUE READING…}

The Importance of Year Round Outdoor Play

This post is sponsored by the Voice of Play. Living in Maine, I am used to several months of cold weather each year. I’m not really a fan of the cold, but I know it’s really important and beneficial to still get outside for some fresh air during the cold months. So, I get the kids bundled up in their warm clothes and head outside to play! Some of our favorite fall and winter activities include throwing or kicking a ball around the back yard, playing a game of “chase”, going for a walk around our (large) yard, building a snowman, and so much more. Last year, my husband and I had so much fun pulling the kids up and {CONTINUE READING…}

While I was doing my Christmas shopping, I hit up Carter’s for a cute holiday outfit and a pair of festive holiday pajamas for my 1 year old son, Logan. They have so many fantastic outfits to choose from in their Holiday Shop! This kid, I tell you, he is such {CONTINUE READING…}

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. The holiday season is upon us, and I am so excited! I love getting together with my family to celebrate Christmas. We swap gifts, eat to our heart’s content, share laughter and smiles, and create wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Our holidays have become even more exciting over the last few years, as my sisters and I have added 5 kids to our family, with another one on the way!

Halloween Costumes for Toddlers with Sensory Sensitivity

Halloween is almost here, and I have been thinking about costumes for my kids. My 3 year old daughter, Kayleigh, has sensory sensitivity, so she does not like to wear certain fabrics, or any kind of heavy costume that does not allow her to move freely, and she will not wear face paint. This year, she has requested to be a pumpkin for Halloween. I want her to be able to dress up for Halloween, but still be comfortable, so I spent quite a while searching the web for Halloween Costumes for Toddlers with Sensory Sensitivity. Surprisingly, there were quite a lot of great hoodies that would make perfect Halloween costumes for toddlers with sensory sensitivity. If your toddler has sensory sensitivity, {CONTINUE READING…}
