Forever Frozen: Lily’s 3rd Birthday Party!

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading, but, as always, I only share products I genuinely love. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.

When my oldest daughter phased out of the Frozen craze, I was certain I dodged a bullet. To my surprise, my youngest expressed her desire to have a Frozen-themed 3rd birthday party this year. She is crazy for Anna and it would appear that Frozen wasn’t going anywhere.

She had yet to let it go (see what I did there? LOL), and it was my pleasure to plan a party that was just what her little heart desired.

Surviving the Dog Days of Summer With Danimals®!

The “Dog Days” of summer are considered to be the hottest days of the summer, typically between July 3rd and August 11th. Yep, we’re in it right now, and I’m sure you’ve been feeling the heat over the last several weeks!

One thing that makes this time of year difficult, especially in this southern humidity, is doing (and enjoying) some fun activities outside with my girls. In particular, the playground.

They are constantly asking to play at the playground, but 5 minutes after arriving they’re hot and thirsty and nothing sounds appealing to them. At least that was the case until we started packing Dannon ® Danimals® Yogurt Smoothies!

How I Simplified Back To School Shopping!

My oldest baby starts kindergarten in 3 days. That’s right. Just 3 days!! We got her registered, met her teacher, and went BTS shopping. My mama heart might not be ready for this, but thanks to Walmart.com, it was so easy for me to get her everything she needs to get started on the right foot!

A Healthy Food Option For Your Picky Eater

Every pregnancy is different. Every baby is different. Every child is different. 

These are things we hear as moms and expecting moms, and while true, it doesn’t necessarily sink in until it’s experienced. At least for me it didn’t until my second precious daughter came along.

My dear Lily has done her best to make a distinction from her big sister since day 1! 

Her sister was born before her due date, Lily was born a day late. Her sister was very active during the day but slept like a champ at night, whereas Lily was incredibly mellow during the day and sleep was definitely NOT in her vocabulary. Her sister has always been pretty good about eating and trying a mix of fruits and vegetables, and that Lily isn’t having it!! HA! 

She will eat fruit (not all of them) and not touch a single vegetable, and (like her father I’m told) boycott most everything that’s placed in front of her during mealtime. It’s frustrating to say the least, but this mama has options with the help of Happy Baby’s Clearly Crafted™ Pouches!
