Christmas Gift Ideas for Infants – Eight Early Learning Toy Gift Ideas for Babies

Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas?  As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months.  Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles.   Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them.  Playtime is also a great way…

Holiday Drama

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them!  Slow your hearts down…  I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month.  I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do.  That’s right… NOTHING.  It feels odd and I’m a little out of place.  I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold.  SO I guess, as…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

Frosty the Snowman Christmas Ornaments

My son came home from school a few days ago with a paper sack and handed it to me.  He said mom, “this is for you.”  I asked him what about dad, he said,”it was for him too.”  I carefully opened the paper bag and peeked inside.  I pulled out this cute ornament that he made at school for us.

I asked my son how they made it and he told me, so that I could share it with my readers.  It is a simple craft idea that you can easily do with your children.  And it would look cute hanging a few…

The Best Christmas Gifts Aren’t Free But You Already Have Them in Your Home

With a young son, Christmas was not a major production although we all strived to make it special. It was important that baby’s first Christmas be filled with special memories we will share with him through pictures and stories when he’s a little older. But of course, our good intentioned gifts were not so well received.

In early November when my son went through a surge of developmental milestones, I upgraded Christmas. He was certainly not going be passive about Christmas…

Every Day is Boxing Day

Boxing Day used to be a high point for many of us parents. After a year of buying full-price retail items and perhaps getting some items on sale every so often, this one day of the year promised to relieve us from the financial strain of raising children in a modern world. Kids, after all, are expensive.



While the holidays proved to be a high point of the year, let's face it: getting a snowsuit or new running shoes for our children at 60 per cent off was almost too much to bear.…
