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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Getting Children Down the Aisle

CommentsPosted by: Rachel Henry on May 13, 2014 in Family Fun, Parenting, Toddlers

As a wedding planner, I’ve seen my fair share of ceremony bloopers. From the best man forgetting the rings to bridesmaid trip-ups and even officiants mispronouncing names… you name it, I’ve seen it! My favorites, however, revolve around child participants. Oh how those flower girls and ring bearers can steal the show with their adorable […]
