Don’t potty train without this!

Over the Labour Day weekend, we decided to start potty training Ashlyn.  Partly because she seemed ready, partly because she was interested in using a potty, and partly because Rowan is outgrowing all of her small diapers and I really needed the bigger ones that Ashlyn was using. Our big hope was that Ashlyn would only need diapers when we're out (just in case) and at night/naps.  I bought a waterproof tablecloth from the dollar store to cover most of our carpet in the family room, brought her Read more [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Rowan’s First Tooth

Shushybye (giveaway)

We're very lucky that bedtime isn't a battle in our house, but not everyone shares that experience!  Ashlyn loves her bedtime stories and we were happy to add a book from Shushybye to our lineup. We received Shushybye: Close Your Eyes, which comes with comes with an audio CD of the entire story narrated by Shushybye’s official storyteller, Kenny Curtis.  I love that option because it means that when we're driving, or I need a few minutes to put Rowan down for a nap, Ashlyn can still hear Read more [...]
