One tradition in my family is going to a local apple orchard and picking our own apples. I have three go-to recipes that I make each year with the apples we pick. Every family should make visiting an apple orchard a yearly family tradition. Here are the reasons why:
I LOVE that my daughter does not behave perfectly all of the time! Do you think I'm crazy? Let me explain. I don't love disciplining my daughter, it breaks my heart. What I do love is that she has the opportunity to learn from mistakes and that there are consequences for her actions when she is in the safety of my care and those consequences are small.
You just want to feel better! There is nothing more disappointing than going to the doctor and being told "its just a virus, you don't need antibiotics". WHAT DO YOU MEAN I DON'T NEED ANTIBIOTICS!?! I'M SICK! There really is a reason behind healthcare providers reserving antibiotics. Legitimate, real life, VERY important reasons.
One of the best things about summer is the fresh produce. In the meantime, I prep corn in the peak of its season so that we can enjoy it all year round. Can you imagine that?! You can eat corn on the cob with your Christmas or New Years dinner.
As fall approaches, breakfast and dessert breads are some of my favorites. I love to add this very simple sugar crust to many of my breads. We even fight over the ends of the bread loaf in my house because of this yumminess!
Sometimes I feel like I am being repetitive with the snacks that I give my one year old daughter. It is really important to me for her to enjoy a variety of healthy foods. I am constantly looking for new snack ideas to avoid her getting tired of the same old things. Here are some snack ideas that my daughter loves.
My complete baby care log package includes a title page to slip in the plastic sleeve of a binder with room to write in baby's name and date of birth, an about baby page for important information, the actual baby care log page, a sick day care log, and a new food log. These printables are designed to make your life easier and more organized. Once purchased, you print as often as you need.
There is nothing worse than your baby feeling poorly. It is so, so, SO very important to keep track of when the last dose of a medication was given. This is easy to miscommunicate with the stress of having a sick child and balancing work and other daily stressors. I threw together a daily care log.
Any of us who have little ones have heard our child's healthcare provider say to introduce one solid food at a time and to wait at least 3 days before introducing another. This helps us isolate which food could be causing allergic symptoms,
Doesn't every parent want to know how their baby's day was at daycare or with the nanny? I've created a baby log that is thorough, organized, and cute all at the same time. It also has enough space along the left side to use a three hole punch.
