Hi! My daughter is turning two and I was wondering if you guys have any cute golden birthday ideas or traditions. I already know I’m going to get her a gold two birthday balloon and taking her to the zoo but other than that I’m lost
What age did your child attend/host 1st sleepover? Daughter is turning 8 years old and she would really like one. I'm wracking my brain and nerves trying to plan/prepare/make definitive decision on yes or no. I don't feel our house is big enough. Her room is upstairs. Mine is downstairs...do I sleep upstairs???? Go up and down15 times checking on girls? Does my hubby and 2 year old st... More
We have a 20 month old toddler and we are due with baby No. 2 in December. My toddler seems really interested in baby and will tell us she wants to go for walks with her, and asks to see my belly all the time to give it hugs and kisses. She even tries to share her food with my belly... 😂 I’m wondering if you can recommend any books or tips that helped prepare your toddlers for being an old... More
Anyone else struggling w/extended pretend play? My 4, soon to be 5 y/o is obsessed! We have some “Inception” play going down; MLP Mane 6 pretending to be Disney Princesses. If she had her way - and she tries - she would have us play from the moment she wakes up and she passes out from exhaustion. I’m so tired.
How should we be spending our days? I love the Montessori and Reggio approach. So I try to include lessons such as those in our days. And I’ll take moments to speak to her in Spanish. But I find when I’m cleaning the house or even just sitting and watching a show - guilty with phone in the hand at times. I’ll have the tv on and she will just play by herself. Or we will cuddle on the couch toge... More
I've tries board books with color themes. He picks up everything else (surprising amounts of details and even remembers the order in which the animals and birds etc come in the book) but is having hard time getting his colors. What can i do to help. He is 2 and knows his numbers and the letter song (for reference). Im not worried but just wanted to see if there is something i could do.
My little one turns 3 soon and I would love to send home party favors that are useful and eco-friendly. Thank you!

My daughter used to love going to swim and dance and for the most part school. Lately, before these events she says she does not want to go to them. It is a struggle to get dressed and in the car to go to them. For the most part, once she gets there she is fine and participates, but not as well as she used to. She doesn't always want to listen to her teachers or instructors. We obvi... More
Hi! We are planning a 3rd birthday party for our son. It’s the first REAL party for him with friends. The venue we have chosen allows for 10 kids - so 9 friends. The problem is that we will not be able to allow siblings. Are there digital invitation websites that allow for you to put one child’s name on the invite OR do I have to send a paper invitation to the only child that is invited? I ... More
So my boyfriend and I are in the midst of house hunting and our little ones 2nd birthday party is coming up in two months. I'm not sure if it's the stress of life or maybe because I'm a crappy mom :/ but I have ZERO motivation to throw him a birthday party :/ Last year for his 1st birthday party, around this time I had the theme and decorations picked out! I was super excited proba... More
Maybe I’m being extra sensitive about this, but we just went to a wedding. My husband and the groom know each other through a mutual friend. And we all tend to get together every few months, 4 couples all together. My husband and the mutual friend are close friends/work together. And we kind of entered this “group of friends” within the last couple of years. Soooo what I’m saying is that we we... More
4 years ago, I met an amazing guy.. almost too good to be true.. he was sweet, caring, thoughtful, and we spent every minute together.. neither of us had our own place so we couldn't have each other over so we both decided to move in with a mutual friend so we could be together until we found our own place.. it was the best 5-6 months I've ever spent with anyone, wasn't the best pla...
