Check out these great ideas to make finding that perfect gift easier for toddlers.

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…Continue

We have all been there. Red and flustered in the middle of a busy shopping centre, while your child lies kicking and screaming on the floor. No matter what you say or do, you are unable to stop them. You are facing a tornado of rage while the world watches. And they do watch! I have been there twice before and now I am facing this lovely toddler stage with my little…

As a mom, I know how important it is for your children to learn new things at an early age. Children typically learn very quickly and easily during those early years especially their language skills. I also knew that I needed to find some preschool teaching materials and tools to help keep him occupied and to make learning fun. I…Continue

Tonight I was browsing the Internet for some fun activities to keep my toddler entertained during the day so that he isn’t spending countless hours in front of the television. I was impressed with the amount of information that I was able to find when I searched for free preschool curriculum. In fact, I was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of…Continue

Hi MBB readers!
I have received some emails over the past few months asking if I follow a “blogging schedule.” In short, I haven’t. I have always blogged according to what was on my mind that day. I finally went through all my posts and read over what I love to write about and have officially made a blogging schedule. Yes, I’m excited to even announce that. In all honesty, I can’t promise to be exact all the time, but I will absolutely try my best. I work best when I have a schedule…Continue

A few months ago we purchased a potty seat for my son, he was starting to show interest in potty training. He has been watching other kids and following us to the restroom for a few months now. After I purchased the potty seat a few months ago, I tried putting my son on the potty. I knew that it was still a bit early and didn’t quite show all of the…Continue

Most toddlers go through a phase where they are attached to a a stuffed animal, lovey, or blanket. They want to take their security object with them everywhere that they go.

Today my youngest got to spend the day with me, he started running a low grade fever last night and acted like he didn’t feel very good. I decided that is was best to keep him home from daycare so that he could get some extra rest while I monitored his fever. It was nice being able to spend some one on one time with my baby. We enjoyed the extra snuggles and cuddles, we watched a few of his favorite shows on TV, and spent some time …Continue

Do you want your child to be polite in public? Do you want them to say “please” and “thank you” when they are offered things? If so, it is important that you begin teaching your child how to have appropriate manners early on. In fact, the earlier you begin teaching your child the better off you will be in…Continue

A few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to let my son pick out a potty seat. We choose to get a potty seat that easily fits on the regular toilet, so that I wouldn’t have to retrain him to use the big potty once he had potty training down. Besides that the daycare he attends also uses a potty seat…Continue

Miss K’s 2nd birthday is right around the corner (which I am finding hard to believe!) and I have been asked by at least 10 different people what kind of party we will be throwing her, are we hiring a place, getting in entertainers, having a bouncy house – I feel like I am surrounded by looks of horror when I say no, we are just going for a nice day out to the children’s museum – JUST THE FOUR OF US. She is going to be 2 not 16, she isn’t even going to know its her birthday!…Continue

My son was still running a fever all day yesterday so I decided to schedule him an appointment to go see the doctor. We got to the doctor’s office and my son was talking up a storm and seemed happy.

Yesterday I didn’t get the opportunity to write a new blog post. My baby normally goes to daycare during the day because it is hard for me to care for him by myself due to my current medical problems. Tuesday late afternoon I got the dreaded call from the daycare that my baby boy was running a fever and…Continue
