Snack Healthy, Snack Happy!

My youngest turned two a couple weeks ago, and while she is just beginning to talk there’s one word I’m pretty sure she’s known since day 1:

Snack.

When I tell you this girl is a snacker, I mean it!!  Carbs and blueberries are all she ever wants. She’ll skip meals and go stand by the pantry door asking for snacks on repeat. Being that this is child number two and I’m oh so experienced (sarcasm noted), I don’t freak out as much about her aversion to complete meals. I do, however, feel bad giving my children the same things over and over and over again. I also want to see her (and my oldest) enjoying foods she likes that are also healthy. When that happens I feel so much better about life, haha, and that’s where Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM come in!

We packed your big sissy up and made sure she had extra clothes for Nannie and Papa’s house. I had a feeling we wouldn’t be home that night.

Small Shop Spotlight: Kid Licks

When my 4 year old asks to wear her princess dress, I know she will embody her royal role with every fiber of her being. So when I told her she could give herself a manicure and pedicure with her new polish from Kid Licks, she was thrilled! This food-based nail polish is made of organic vegetables, fruits and plants, making it edible and free from harmful chemicals! I’m so excited to feature Kid Licks for my Small Shop Spotlight, and learn more about the maker and the product both my girls enjoy so much.

Fresh For You: A Freshly Picked Giveaway & Review!

I have a confession to make. My daughter’s have what some (mainly my husband), would call a vast amount of shoes. They have different colors and styles, and they certainly have an opinion as to what they do and don’t like.  I thought I covered all my bases until Lily recently got her first pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins.
