Great Baby Toy!

ballMy daughter just loves playing with balls.

There is something about it that excites her.

The problem is, depending on the size of the ball, it usually rolls away, and she spends all her energy chasing after it…which is not necessarily a bad thing 😉

Sometimes it can be frustrating for her when she just can’t grip the ball, and I just found the best ball that she just LOVES to play with!

The Edushape Senso-Dot Ball is a ball with grips all over it that babies love to hold, squeeze, chew, lick, and look at.

Buy it- your baby will love it too!

Happy playing!



Great Cleaning Tip!

Have you ever tried cleaning up glitter after an arts and crafts project?

That stuff gets everywhere, and can be really annoying to remove!

If you try to sweep it, your broom will forever be dragging the shiny stuff all over your house, and vacuuming can sometimes result in glittery puffs of wind coming up from the machine…

There is a solution: a lint roller!

This simple idea really works, is easy, cheap, and you probably have one in your house anyway!

Just roll it over the mess, and it’s all clean.

If you do not have a lint roller, a large piece of tape can also do the trick, it might just take a bit longer.

Happy cleaning!

Taking Pictures?

Spring is in the air (finally!) and this is the time of year when many families take professional pictures outdoors.

One of the hardest parts of taking pictures with little kids is finding the perfect mix of outfits that:
a. looks good together
b. fits everyone
c. feels comfortable- because when the kids feel itchy that shows in the pictures
d. will not get dirty in ten seconds (think white pants)

Here is one idea for a family of three.

I like this mix because it’s neutral so it won’t take away from the kids’ faces, and it looks like it fits all four criteria above!


The best part is, it is not expensive, and all the items can be found at Gap.

Although they are not super cheap to begin with, they are always having sales, so if you know when to buy, you can get very classy, well-made, cute clothing for the right price.

On the topic of photography, I just found this awesome blog that documents that “kids were here” with creative pictures. It is very interesting- so if you’re into this kids of stuff, make sure to check out
