With Safety Pieces Installed, It’s Potty Training Time!

CommentsPosted by: Tamara Palmer on Sep 30, 2014 in Milestones, Parenting, Toddlers

So it’s been a little while since I have updated my blog here. Life gets busy when you have a little child running around the house. We have had a whole new array of child safety things to install now that my little man is almost 2 years old. As soon as he started crawling, […]

Protect Your Child: Never Leave Them in a Hot Car

This summer alone, it seems, parents are failing when it comes to children and hot cars. There have been 18 reported deaths of children left in cars; 34 total in the year of 2012. Leaving children in cars is not a new concept. Many parents feel safe about leaving children in cars with older siblings […]

Why Can’t I Behave Like a Toddler Sometimes?

CommentsPosted by: Tamara Palmer on Aug 06, 2014 in Family Fun, Parenting, Toddlers

How would you like to be able to get away with doing the same things that your toddler does? I’m not talking about the cute stuff and being able to nap during the middle of the day. I’m talking about all the things that you probably don’t like YOUR own toddler doing. I have been […]

Why Can’t School Be All Year Long?

CommentsPosted by: Brandie Chesney on Jul 23, 2014 in Parenting, Toddlers

I don’t know how to make it stop. I beg and use time outs like they are going out of style on a daily basis. This mother of four has hit a hurdle. My twins, 6.5-year-olds, not only fight with each other constantly but fight with the littles, too. Fight, wine, bicker, push, bite and […]

What to Say and What not to Say to This Mommy

CommentsPosted by: Tamara Palmer on Jul 22, 2014 in Parenting, Toddlers

Recently I read a blog on scarymommy.com titled “13 Things Non-Parents Should Never say to Parents”. Before I was a mommy to my wonderful little 18-month-old boy, I always used to look on at other parents and think, “What would I do differently?” Or I would make a comment like, “When my child is that […]

Happy Moving Day from the Palmers!

Have you ever moved homes with a toddler before?? My recommendation…. DON’T!!! Wait until your little one can actually understand fully what you are saying and you can understand him. My husband and I recently decided to take advantage of the low interest rates and the desire of people wanting to live in our neighborhood. […]

Preparing Your Child for Another Baby’s Arrival

Welcoming a newborn infant into your life is one of the greatest moments a new mom and dad will have in their lives. The addition of a baby to a family can also be a hard time for an older sibling. While parents experience elation and joy over their baby, it is not unusual for […]

Sunscreen 101: Tips To Keep Your Kids Safe This Summer

CommentsPosted by: Dr. Ashley Lucas on Jun 04, 2014 in Babies, health, Parenting, Toddlers

Summer is here, which means it’s time to stock up on sunscreen for those pool parties and beach trips. To help prevent sunburn (and to some degree, skin cancer), find a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 15 – the higher the number, the better. Look for one that screens out […]

Sleeping Beauty

As we dive deeper into Owen’s 4th year of life, I’m starting to truly fear the teen years.  I feel like there are times I’m getting a little taste of what life will be like, all while he is still little and charming—you know before he needs deodorant.  Somewhere near the middle of his second […]

Eh, I Guess I Could Build a Snowman

CommentsPosted by: Rachel Henry on May 29, 2014 in Family Fun, Parenting, Toddlers

We watched Frozen three times last weekend. We listen to the Frozen soundtrack every time we are in the car. We read the Frozen books before bed. We are keeping the Frozen franchise alive and well. Unfortunately… I do not want to build a snowman. I already know what frozen things do in summer. I’d […]
