My daughter is in this new phase that she really likes to dole out compliments. It's really cute and usually surrounds what I'm wearing or is repeated from what she hears.... Mama, that's a beautiful dress. Or dinner will be delicious! Super adorable, right? It always brings a smile to my face and kind of … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Unconventional Compliments
Hello there!! Today I am writing in hopes of getting some ideas, tips or suggestions from you, beautiful fellow bloggers and readers! Apparently I can't just half-do things when it comes to my kids... I learned that when I wanted to create an indoor play-space for miss Aadie Belle. Now it is time for us … Continue reading Playscape ideas?!
I've probably posted about this before, but we are very much in the midst of a very black and white phase with our toddler so the fun just keeps on coming. At this point, if something is called by a name or word that she doesn't agree with, you will get an earful. Example: Nice … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings…being literal.
I came across a post yesterday which linked to another post by Real Girls Kitchen which held the recipe for unicorn fruit cones! I didn't make this up, I just used her idea and what I had on hand. It's such a cute and simple concept, but one that I knew my little chickadee would definitely … Continue reading A Special Snack- Unicorn Fruit Cones
Well everyone... today was the day. My last day of work for the foreseeable future!! It was weird... exciting and sad at the same time. Before I left my friend Emily asked me, "Does it feel weird that in 15 minutes you'll be a SAHM?". I thought about that on my drive home... I spent … Continue reading Officially a S-A-H-M!

I found myself in this predicament recently... My little darling angel girl, who had previously been … Continue reading Sugar Bugs… aka, explaining oral hygiene to my kid.
The weather has finally been nice enough to be outside so I've been trying to spend a good chunk of time out in the yard with my toddler while baby boy sleeps. We usually take some toys and books out along with a big blanket to sit on, since she hates walking in grass. (I thought … Continue reading Playing outside…The Car Game, “chickens” and naughty bugs sharing germs.
The cute/funny things Aadie says at the kitchen table always have a way of tickling my funny bone. She loves to practice "verbing" these days. So whether or not she's hopping like a bunny, or skipping or jumping, she's always on the move.... and loudly announcing to us what type of move she's doing! I'm … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… “Gwaboing”
Have you ever had a conversation with your kids and realized afterward that neither one of you had any idea what you just talked about for the past 5 minutes? The other day at lunch Aadie asked for "red beggies".... cautiously I probed for more information... tomatoes? peppers? does she really mean that she wants an apple? No, … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… “Red Beggies”
As a speech language pathologist (SLP) I can appreciate each stage of speech and language development that my daughter has gone through and continues to go through. I taught her a few baby signs, and she was speaking some real words (Real= understood by unfamiliar listeners with a true meaning attached) around 7 months old. Now … Continue reading Encouraging Toddler’s Speech… The good, the bad and the funny!
