Happy Friday, friends!
What are your plans for the weekend? We don’t have much going on other than working on a few small projects for baby girl and continuing to soak up some quality time with the boys.
1) Speaking of quality time with your kids, have you heard of the idea of penny walks? When you go out for a walk with your kiddos, take a penny along. As you come to a new street, toss a coin – heads you go one way, tails you go another. It’s such a fun twist to add to your routine walk, and kids will love that you’ve turned your walk into a game.
2) Ever since Theo was a baby, one resource that I’ve returned to time and time again is The Baby Sleep Site. This site has a ton of wonderful, free information to help you with all the special little trials and tribulations that come along with babies and sleep. They also offer paid sleep consultation for an extra special crisis, which you bet your bottom dollar we’ve had to use (and boy was it worth it!).
I read one of their articles recently on Montessori floor beds and was really intrigued with the idea. I’m a fan of the Montessori learning approach, but I don’t know much about how that extends into the home. After reading the article, though, I think we are going to try this with Oliver. Stay tuned for more on that transition!
3) Do you budget for groceries and meal plan? I stumbled on this helpful tool that allows you to fill in your family’s age and size and it tells you how much you should be spending on groceries. It’s a helpful tool to use as you budget each week/month.
5) I finally got around to signing up for Chatbooks and I couldn’t be happier! It’s a great way to ensure that all your photos from social media get printed. What’s more, they come in book form which makes everything look just a tad more special. Plus, no more photo albums!
Well, until next time. Happy Friday!
