San Antonio lifestyle blogger, Cris Stone, shares this kid’s Thanksgiving turkey puppet DIY for the young ones to do before the big dinner. It’s really easy and needs little to no adult help (The Best Projects, in my opinion).
Planning to hit up Walt Disney World with your baby and preschooler? Curious as to what you’ll need in the park every day and what you can leave behind? Well, I just got back from a week long trip to Disney World with my husband, 3 year old daughter and infant son and I can totally help you! I’ll clue you in on the items that we were SO grateful to bring with us every day, to the ones we liked having just in case, and which ones you can just leave behind (either at home or in the hotel). And as an extra bonus? EVERYTHING can be bought on Amazon TODAY (and don’t forget to click through and become an Amazon Prime member with free two day shipping!):
My daughter is a HUGE Hulk fan. Like, HUGE! She’s just loves anything “Hulk Smash” and we watch “The Avengers” at least once a week. So, when it came time to plan her third birthday party, I decided to go with an Avengers theme. As the Patron Saint of Slacker Moms, I kept things VERY simple but still wanted to have a few special touches. As the official Cheap Ass of my family, I also wanted to keep it affordable. So, the idea of doing a swimming party with a superhero theme was born. Check out the rest of the post for tips and ideas from Melanie’s Marvel Avengers Birthday Party!
I’ve done many posts on preparing for baby and I think that I do a pretty good job of making sure that I have what is needed before the little arrives. However, after the birth of Melanie, I realized that, while I had all the stuff, I had completely neglected to make any preparations for showing her off to the world. I totally forgot to plan for birth announcements, photo books, and photo canvases to showcase all her cuteness. But on my second go around – I was prepared, y’all! I booked a newborn session with Pure Happiness Photography and knew that, when it came time, I would be getting ready with Mixbook!
I’m about to become a two-time parent and with it came a HUGE issue that I hadn’t anticipated. How am I supposed to safely wrangle and transport a newborn and a rambunctious 3 year old around San Antonio (and on future road trips and vacations)? As many of you know, my daughter is not a quiet, sit in a stroller seat kinda kid. She’s more of a let’s-see-how-fast-and-far-I-can-run-away kid. We’ve been using a leash (and 100% happy with that decision) but really did somewhere for her to relax when we went out for a long day at the rodeo or park. And it also needed to accommodate her new brother and his growing needs. Luckily, I realized that the best investment you can make as a second time parent is the Evenflo Sibby Travel System and the Ride-Along Board.
