My First International Flight with 2 Toddlers

This year, we had a lot of anxiety leading up to our first ever international flight with two children under the age of 4. We weren’t just going international, but actually crossing over the date-line. I used to think that 6-10 hour flights were long, but 15 hours and 40 minutes to the Philippines? Plus TSA […]

Chocolate Date Nut Brownies

These bites are an excellent fix for your chocolate craving, or for making your sweet toothed-children happy without giving in to their cookie and brownie whims! They pack a lot of flavor in each bite, with delectable hints of vanilla and chocolate. Your kids won’t know they contain fruit and will love how fudgy and gooey they are, and, […]

DIY Bubble Solution

Bubbles are a big deal in our house. Though, to be honest, they should be a big deal in any house with toddlers and preschoolers. Last year, we rented an awesome bubble machine for their birthday party and I realized we could probably buy one for just as cheap. So we did, and, instead of paying […]

DIY Childproofing Your Toddler’s Dresser

Our baby’s growing into a toddler and we’ve been dealing with so many changes! He is climbing everything, opening and closing everything, and just in everything! Somehow, we lucked out with our first child who wasn’t as physical with his environment and didn’t need as much baby proofing. Now that our younger 22-month-old is out of his crib and […]
