#ASKAWAYFriday with Beth from Structured in an Unstructured Life

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them. I wanted to participate in this blog hop because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself. I thought #ASKAWAYFriday was the perfect way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Beth asked me and…

Establish a Bed Time Routine for Your Child and Calm Their Fears With Monster Defense Spray

Over the last several weeks, I have noticed that my youngest son doesn’t like to go to bed at night.  I am not sure if he is scared of the dark, terrified to be alone, dealing with separation anxiety, if he is just going through a phase where he wants to be independent, or he is afraid of “monsters” hiding under his bed or in his closet.   Every night we go through the same exact routine, my youngest son will throw a fit and he will tell me that he doesn’t want to go to bed.  Each night we…

Use Your Local Library as a Resource for Preschool Teaching Tools

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time.  I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small.  When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children.  Every week our library has a scheduled…

Miley Cyrus Seeks The Wrong Attention

I didn’t get a chance to watch the VMA award shows on T.V. a few nights ago but I have seen clips of Miley Cyrus’s big performance.  As a mom, I am outraged and feel as if this type of content shouldn’t be on prime time television.  After all, many families…

How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…

Coloring is a Great Way to Spend Time With Your Child

Spending time with your children, especially, one on one time is important and makes them feel loved.  I have been trying to make sure that I spend time with my toddler because he is growing up way to fast.  I have a hard time getting down on the floor to play with him (due to my chronic back pain) so I have to be a bit more creative and find activities that work for me.  He loves to “draw”, which is his favorite thing to do these days.  So I scooped him up into my lap and grabbed the…

Learn How to Keep Your Toddler’s Artwork off of the Walls and Furniture

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store.  I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw.  I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…

Tummy Time Can Prevent Your Newborn from Developing Plagiocephaly

The “Back to Sleep” campaign was introduced in the early 1990′s to help prevent babies from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).  When a baby is born their heads are still soft and their skull will slowly harden over the next few months.  However, laying your baby in the same position all the time places gentle pressure on the back of the skull, causing it to slowly change shape.  Read the full post at …
