Great Wolf Lodge Review

By |May 14th, 2013|Babble, Parenting, Travel|

Last week our family of 6 headed to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX.  It was my husband and my son's birthday so after school on Monday, we surprised the kids by telling them we were all going to the store as a family, which they HATE. Little did they know, the back of the [...]

Cereal Box Crafts

By |January 29th, 2013|Babble, Parenting, Things to Do with Kids, Toddler Talk|

Does your family consume ungodly amounts of cereal? Mine does. It's obscene, that's if I am not around. While I am trying to stick to more of the granola and whole grains, the husband has a weakness when giving into the kids when it comes to cereal (particularly Lucky Charms) and Ovaltine. I totally blame [...]

Watch Your Child Around Claw Machines!

By |August 9th, 2012|Babble, Parenting|

Sure, kids love all types of vending machines - especially those with lights and sounds and that can result in toys... right? Anytime we see any of these flashing lights and noises, I try to divert. It rarely works, but I try but it never fails that I am BEGGED for a quarter or 3 [...]

Toddler Talk: Toddler Sleep

By |July 31st, 2012|Babble, Parenting, Toddler Talk|

Toddler sleep – how those two words are oh so present in my life right now. The last 4 nights have had me up not sleeping due to Izaiah, our toddler’s new issue of sleeping. I honestly don’t know how he is still awake! Izaiah is a BUSY kid. He runs non-stops, eats everything he can and then CRASHES hard. A typical day from the time he was a year until up until a week ago was a 3-hour nap and a good 12 hours sleep. As long as he is fed and well rested, he is good to go. A few days ago, he scared me to death by waking me up at 4:00 am, just shortly after I had gone to bed. I was half asleep and this little toddler hung over my face saying “hello mommy.” Yes, I nearly peed the bed. I put him in bed with me, in which we tossed and turned. I returned him to his bed, where he returned 4 times. It was endless cycle, ending with us both sleeping on the floor in his room for 2 hours, until the baby woke up.  […]

The Story of a Baby Born at 24 Weeks

By |July 17th, 2012|Babble, Parenting, Pregnancy|

I can remember pregnancy like it was just yesterday, except it was a year ago. I thank God often for the healthy babies I delivered. With 4, I am so blessed to have rather easy pregnancies all resulting in healthy and full-term babies.  Thru each pregnancy, I would mark each week. “6 weeks” “15 weeks” ” 24 weeks” – counting down to delivery time. Last year, with Zeke’s pregnacy I blogged the last 5 months regularly. While I always use to kid, if this baby would just come today – the truth is that each week in the womb is essential. Here I was at 24 weeks pregnant. It was still a full 15 weeks before I would deliver our baby boy. […]

Amazing Playroom Inspirations

By |July 15th, 2012|Babble, Parenting|

With 4 kids, our playroom is the heart of our home. It’s a getaway for our older kids and a play haven for our toddler and baby Zeke.  The room is where the toys live and the a room that rarely sees cleaning. The current state of our’s is well - sad.  We are in the midst [...]

Babies Are Weird Interesting Creatures

By |July 10th, 2012|Babble, Parenting|

Babies are weird. I said it. Before we had babies, my perception of babies was that they were a combination of a puppy dog and a baby doll. Puppies you have to take care of and baby dolls you can play with. My theory was blown to pieces after having our first baby. Your first baby is more like trying to house train 25 puppies at once and then letting all 25 puppies sleep with you. Yeah, so babies aren’t exactly like how I thought they would be, but that’s okay. I went on to have 4 of them, so I guess I kind of like them – or I’m sadistic. We’ll stick with option A. And after 4, I can indeed say that babies are weird. […]

Awkward Introductions

By |July 2nd, 2012|Babble|

So today I started my new gig on Toddler Times at Babble. Many moons ago when pregnant with baby #4, Babble asked me to blog Being Pregnant. Last year (almost a year ago *sniff* *sniff*), when Zeke was born – I moved from Being Pregnant to Baby’s First Year. And as the natural course of things would go, seeing Zeke is no longer in his first year **MAJOR CRY** – I am blogging about toddlers. Seeing I have 2 toddlers and blog about it here on Toddler Talk Tuesday, I guess it all makes perfect sense. Well that’s dandy, right. But now it’s like working a new job, but it’s a blog. The blog has readers I have to do this introduction thing, and am I the only one who does awkward introductions?  […]

Babies as Adults

By |March 5th, 2012|Babble|

Photographer Malo shot a series of photographs portraying babies as adults in their possible future careers. The series entitled, Un jour, mon enfant tu seras, translated as One Day You Will Be My Child, captures babies dressed in several getups representing various professions. All of this babies as adults business has me thinking about our 4 kids. What [...]
