3 Simple Tips For Fun Unstructured Time After School

Big Kid/ Family

School started months and months ago, but we’re still adjusting to the new schedule. My kiddo went from 3-hour school days just three days a week at a child-led Montessori school to full-day Kindergarten classes five days a week at an achievement-centered elementary school with strict rules. S reminds me a lot of myself at her age. She needs a sense of control and understanding in her own world. She needs to participate in choices that affect her and be a part of decision making. So allowing her unstructured time to decompress and unwind after school has been pretty important for us. Here, I’m sharing 3 tips for creating fun unstructured time in your own home to ease the transition for your own kiddo. Read more

The Ultimate Star, Moon and Cloud Baby Registry

Birthing/ Pregnancy

Nursery rooms and baby showers have a theme, so why not your baby registry? Focusing on a theme can help make putting the shower together a bit easier, and also help ensure that the mom-to-be gets items that she actually needs and wants for the new baby. Since my nursery room is star, moon and cloud themed with gray, white and mint as the main colors, I created an ultimate star, moon and cloud baby registry to share! From something for the big sis or big bro-to-be to items needed for diapering (minus the given wipes & diapers) and bedtime, you’ll find this is a super complete list of musts for families expecting for the first time or again. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end! Read more

9 Books About Martin Luther King Jr. For Kids Under 7

Social Good/ Social Time

I remember hunting for an age-appropriate book about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to read to my daughter last year and coming up short. We were visiting family out of town and none of the stores had anything, even Target (my go-to store). We found a story time about Martin Luther King Jr. at the zoo, but the book was really meant for kids ages 7 and up, not the little ones trying to grasp what was being shared. So this year I looked up a few book options in advance. Keep reading for 9 book options that help introduce kids younger than 7 to who Martin Luther King Jr. was, why he’s celebrated, and why he’s still so important. Read more

3 Tips for Art Nouveau Maternity Photos

Birthing/ Pregnancy

What’s your favorite part of pregnancy? For some it might be the ability to eat more of something they love because, hey, cravings. Others enjoy the hormone changes and embrace just everything preggo. Me? I really, really look forward to the maternity photos (OK yes, and giving into the cravings haha). Maternity photos are super important for moms to get just one day where they can feel and look like the birthing goddess they are. So many moms – Especially second kiddo and beyond – feel just kinda blah about themselves during pregnancy and these photos are a chance to shine, a chance to have something that shows your pregnancy. So why not have fun with them? I went with a sort of art nouveau photoshoot since I love that theme (my wedding was also art nouveau). Keep reading to see all the pics and grab some tips for your own art nouveau maternity photos! Read more
