More Peanut Butter Snack Bite Fun with Kraft!

Peanut Butter Snack Bites with sprinkles

A few weeks ago, I shared a super easy recipe called No Bake After School Peanut Butter Snack Bites. These little snack bites went over SO well with my kiddos, that they have been asking me almost daily since I last made them whether or not there were more waiting for them on the table when they get home from school. They were so easy to make, I honestly feel like I technically could make these every day as an after school snack and I’m pretty sure that they would never tire of them because there are SO MANY VARIATIONS … Continue reading

Say NO to Diaper Cakes and Choose Wonderwear Cloth Diaper Service Instead (Giveaway)

Wonderwear Cloth Diaper Service GTA

Baby Shower diaper cakes are adorable and all, but they are made with disposable diapers that sometimes don’t even get used! Instead of giving someone a cake made out of disposable diapers, I highly recommend you consider gifting a cloth diaper service instead. I remember back when my kids were in diapers, it seemed like the only choices were disposable diapers, cloth diapers that you had to launder yourself (a very daunting concept), or a very costly cloth diaper service (which simply wasn’t an option for someone on mat leave). Now, times have changed and there are options that are … Continue reading

A Game to Make Discipline FUN! #Giveaway

parenting game

When I was younger (much, much younger), I used to dream of becoming a parent one day. I dreamt of the typical white picket fence, two children (a boy and a girl –>I’m very fortunate that my dream came true) and that I would be a stay at home Mom. When I would dream, I had VERY rose coloured glasses on, because I was naive and really had NO CLUE just how challenging parenting could be at times. Please don’t get me wrong! I LOVE being a parent and it is truly the most rewarding ‘job’ on the planet BUT….with … Continue reading

A Tip When Purchasing Rain Boots for your Children

Toms Rainboots

I’ve got a tip for you when it comes to purchasing rain boots for your children! You know how children grow QUICKLY? Well, I often find that their feet grow twice as fast, leaving their shoes that have barely been worn behind in the dust. In order to get away without purchasing rain boots quite as often, be sure to buy them so that you can fit a good 2 finger widths in front of their toes. Then, stuff cotton balls inside the toe of the boot until their feet grow. Rain boots can be a bit floppy at the … Continue reading
