Mama Loves is a linky party where mamas can share anything that has made your life easier as a mama.
Maybe you've found:
- a toy or book that captivates your child(ren)
- gear you just can't live without
- a recipe your choosy toddler gobbles down
- a parenting book that you've found perspective changing
- an activity that wears your kid(s) out (these lead to good naps, which we all love)
- an outfit that flatters your post-baby body and makes you feel fabulous
- or anything else you're loving--creativity welcome!
To link your post up, click on the linky tool at the bottom, and follow the directions, it's really easy. You can also add this beautiful button to your post. Just grab the code in the box, copy and paste it into your post. Easy.
What are some favorite toys around your house? You guys have already shared so many great ideas!
- Mandy's girls love these puzzles.
- Leslie's boys love tractors!
- Katie can tell you a fun way for your little ones to learn sign language.
- Wendy and her twins love music!
- Sara's little one loves having a table just his size (this is on our Christmas list this year for sure!).
We've been sick around here this week. The girls have been battling the croup. I'm so thankful to report that with a call to our pediatrician, we've been able to treat it at home. No ER visits!
So, a word on snot.
That stuff is like glue. I really think the glue manufacturers should look into it as some sort of natural glue alternative or something. Snot certainly has some staying power.
But, it is no match for Boogie Wipes!
Crusty, snotty noses need Boogie Wipes. The saline dissolves all the glue-like snot gently. My girls actually like having their noses wiped with these.
So, I don't know about you, but at this stage in the game, I can't take the girls to parks with playgrounds by myself. In fact, the very thought of it makes me start to sweat.
My girls, in a matter of two seconds, can masterfully manage to divide to the far most opposite ends of the playground, and climb their way into some sort of precarious, dangerous situation.
One day, in desperation--Brad was out of town, the girls really wanted to run around outside, it was a lovely day, so I wanted to be outside too--I took my girls to the playground, only we didn't go to the playground. We went to the tennis courts adjacent to the playground.
The courts are fenced in, so I shut and latched the gates giving my girls a great big
The first time I just brought sidewalk chalk (I'm sorry if this offends any serious tennis players out there). Since then, we've brought balls and other toys for the girls to play with in the tennis courts.
We've even had a few playdates at the tennis courts.
Can't wait to see what you're loving this week!
