What's cuter than a baby all snuggled in their Christmas jammie's while roaming the house looking for Santa's milk and cookies?!? Absolutely NOTHING! This time of year is simply magical and when you have little ones at home, Carter's helps to bring the magic to life by having such a variety of holiday attire to dress your little one in! Whether you have a holiday party to attend or a day of sledding, their sweet clothes offer your baby the perfect outfit while not breaking the bank! Below, I'm going to share why I love their holiday line so much and how they give back with the Pajama Program.
Their sweet little jammies are warm, fuzzy and incredibly cozy. Perfect to keep their toes warm when the temperatures drop. Snuggled next to the fire with your sweet one cuddled beside you in their footie jammies is what any mama dreams of during this special season! Fleece stocking onesies like these, or their snug fit Mrs Claus two piece set are a few of my favorites. Besides the obvious adorable factor of snuggly babies in holiday gear, I feel even better about purchasing from Carter's as they are partnering with the Pajama Program. Make sure to grab all the details below, but they are making sure up to a hundred thousand little ones in need have jammies this holiday season.
Now that I’m a mommy of small children, my go-to daily attire has changed a bit.
Gone are the days of super high pumps, and restrictive clothing. Well, for now anyway.
In this season of life, I have to keep things simple. That’s because I’m in the daily trenches of mommyhood. So I’m up, I’m down, I’m changing diapers, loading car seats, sweeping, mopping, washing seven thousand sinks of dishes, and folding just as many baskets of laundry.
I remember when my first-born turned two. I hadn’t had much of a party for her on her first birthday, but for her second, I was going all out! I arranged a huge birthday bash in a big park with lots of people and more cupcakes than could be consumed.
I remember the preparation that went into it on that day. As the hours kept creeping by, my stress level just kept climbing. All of the details that I had planned out were now in a bucket of sweat dripping from my brow as I worked frivolously to make it all perfect for my sweet and only little princess. It took everything in me to keep it together without blowing a gasket.
The party was… fun! I don’t think my girl remembers it. At all. And what she liked most about that day? Playing.
I applaud the mamas who make Pintrest-worthy birthday parties. No really, I truly do admire them!! I have a couple of friends who pull that off amazingly well, and I’m over here in awe.
I had to learn the hard way that unfortunately this mama is does not have that amazing gift!
These days, I take a different approach. Something more unique to my strengths, and the interests of my kiddos.
I call it…
The Keep-It-Super-Simple approach. ;)

With your first baby, the world basically stops for a little but your life goes on--you don't really have too much going on in the first 6 weeks of life as they eat-poop-sleep-repeat. When the second one comes along, your life is still happening. Your oldest has school, soccer, swimming, gymnastics, the list goes on. I love the Carter's Original Bodysuits for when we are on the run, and need to quickly dress my little man. I also carry two or three in the car, because... well, kids.
Vacationing with littles is nothing but blue skies, or at least one would hope! We recently took the kids with us back to Maui for their second time. Traveling all the way over from Florida equates to about 4500 miles of pulling every trick out of my Mary Poppins bag to keep the exhaustion melt downs to a minimum (mine too). Long airplane or car rides can be testing on your momma patience, but I have a few favorites for making the journey easier for you and them.
Writing this is my therapy from the last week, so apologizing in advance if it comes off in rambles. Hurricane Irma hit Florida and it hit it hard y’all. We are on the west coast in central Florida in Tampa, and for about a week, we were feeling impending doom headed our way in one way or another. Here is my account of the events and how my momxiety took over for a hot minute.
Irma was predicted to hit the opposite coast of Florida, but knowing it’s size and living here my whole life, I know things can change last minute and they did. A few days ago, the spaghetti models (I don’t want to eat spaghetti for a long, long time FYI) swapped coasts and it was predicted to make land fall in the Florida Keys and then continue up to Naples or Fort Meyers. Tampa was still within the cone as a possibility for landfall, but mostly looked like we would get the eye over us as a category three as it traveled up the coast.
There is this six letter word that we all love and adore...M-i-c-k-e-y. There is also a five letter word we also love and adore...c-a-n-d-y. Add those two together plus some out of this world rides, character meet 'n greets, pumpkins, parades and all things pixie dust, and you've got Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. This super family friendly special event is sure to leave your little ones (and you) once again mesmerized by the magic of Disney now through November 1st. I'm bringing you the ins and outs of this night so you can be sure to enjoy every Mickey filled minute!
I love watching my baby grow, and I am sure that I am not alone when I say that I want to keep her small and in my arms forever! But the inevitable happens and she grows and learns new things everyday! She has recently transitioned (and is still transitioning) to solids, in addition to her several bottles of milk a day! I have listed a few tips that I have learned along the way. I hope you find these tips helpful as you start this new adventure of transitioning your little love bug to eating solid foods.
There is nothing like the magic that Disney brings to it's theme parks and resorts, with Fort Wilderness Campgrounds being no exception. From the very front parking entrance where the helping hands told fun jokes to my kids in the back seat as we checked in, to the Chip 'n' Dale campfire experience, all the way to the Magic Kingdom fireworks being in view at the beach...magic. This was our kids first camping experience and something tells me it will never be topped. I want to share all the ins and outs to camping at Ft. Wilderness with kids so you are prepared for your visit!
