Real Mom Talk: Kids & Pets
April 27, 2016 6:56 pm | by

Our baby and fur baby are almost exactly three years apart. Asher came along when Melvin (the pup) was just three and it's been an adjustment since. Melvin was pretty good when it came to getting used to Asher being around, but I can tell he isn't always interested in playing when Asher is eager to have some fun. On occasion he will entertain Asher, but Melvin is pretty laid back and would rather be napping on the couch or hiding out somewhere. Melvin is a smaller dog, a Shih-Tzu, and his demeanor is just easy. He's a very well-behaved dog

Valentine's Day is such a fun holiday — one that's filled with lots of sweets and love! During this time of year, I always try to make a festive craft with my little one that we can display around the house and admire! This year for Valentine's Day, we decided to make DIY Tissue Paper Hearts that look like stained glass! This is something that's super easy to make, great for any age and adds so much color into our house. Aside from this craft being a bonding experience, it also promotes fine motor skill use and independence. Here's how

 
Handling Picky Eaters

My little guy has always been a great eater. Ever since he first started solids, there was rarely anything he didn't like. After he turned two, I worried that his great little eating habits would change, but they didn't. I thought we were in the clear, well, that was until he turned three and now we're learning how to handle a picky eater! For the last four months, my eager little eater has now turned into a persnickety muncher who turns his nose up at the sight of anything that's not a boiled egg, pack of fruit snacks, or cereal. We've had

 
Cloth 101: When to Change a Cloth Diaper
September 7, 2015 6:49 pm | by

We've all seen THAT baby — the baby who's running around with a disposable diaper that looks like it weighs 15 pounds and is sagging well below the waist. By now, we should all (hopefully) know that when a diaper droops, it's usually a clear indication that it's time for a change. In general, it's easy to tell when a disposable diaper needs to be replaced. But with cloth, you're not as lucky. Cloth diapers are not equipped with absorbent materials that turn into a squishy gel when wet, which, with a simple poke, tells you that your baby should be changed. Cloth

Real Mom Talk: Potty Training Your Toddler

So you think your child is ready for potty training. Awesome! She is exhibiting all the signs of readiness: she wakes up dry after nap and in the mornings, tells you before or after she goes, loves to exhibit independence, shows interest when YOU have to go (that’s always fun), and hates having a dirty diaper. There are probably more signs but I feel these are the most obvious. So whether your child is 18 months or almost 4, if he or she is exhibiting some of this behavior, you may want to give it a try!I’ll admit that I’ve

 
Real Mom Talk: Letting Kids Choose Their Own Clothes

Getting 3 kids out of bed, dressed, fed, and out the door each morning is a circus: matching outfits, brushing teeth, combing hair, finding shoes, putting on coats. It’s chaos. A time-sucker. It’s not for the faint of heart. Mama’s always trying to find a way to make it easier.I used to pick out a week’s worth of outfits per kid every Sunday night. This way we’d have an easier time getting out the door each morning. Sometimes this would backfire. On more than one occasion, my daughter put ALL of the clothes on, as well as her brother’s (underwear
