Up the Fun Quotient for the Summer

Up the Fun Quotient for the Summer

My three dolls and I have been busy working through our summer goals: For Vintage Doll there is SAT prep, FLVS Spanish, and driver’s permit.  Yes, folks!  My 15 year old is on the road.  I could wax cliche about clearing the road and such, but she is so careful and responsible that it would…

Building a Toddler Play Splash Fountain

Building a Toddler Play Splash Fountain

For Rainbow Baby’s first birthday we wanted to get her something fun.  I came across this intriguing DIY on Instructables.  It showed a simple toddler play splash fountain to frolic in, made of a storage box, a fountain pump, and some pipes with elbows and caps.  It looked perfect for refreshing summer play and it would…

Babies Love Art

Babies Love Art

On our recent trip to New York City we visited the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). As big fans of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) I was surprised at Sunshine Doll’s request to go to MoMA instead (or Mooma as she previously thought it was called). She had studied the art movements in…

Developing Baby Brain

Developing Baby Brain

If you thought that title means that my brain is a bit fuzzy since giving birth to my Rainbow baby – well, it is, but that is not what I am writing about today.  I don’t know how I can write about the absence of something.  Something I miss dearly and hope will return to…

Our Little Helmet Head (conclusion)

Our Little Helmet Head (conclusion)

At 6 months old, almost 7 months, our gal donned her helmet or “band” as they call it. We were told to check for red spots and irritations. She quickly developed a rash where the stabilizing portion on the helmet rubbed her cheek. That was on a Friday afternoon, so we had to leave the…

Our Little Helmet Head

Our Little Helmet Head

We are nearing the end of our helmet journey and I am ready to look back and see where we’ve been.  Our little Rainbow Baby had none of the issues you would expect for ending up in a DOC band.  I was an experienced mom who went into birth determined that, come hell or highwater,…

Fat Babies

Fat Babies

Fat babies are so cute. I’ve never had one myself. But my niece has rolls to spare. Heck, I have rolls to spare. But my exclusively breast fed babies, while healthy, never get fat. I got a little alarmed last month as I kept weighing my five month old and she was not gaining weight….

What To Do When My Relationship With My Kid Needs Work

What To Do When My Relationship With My Kid Needs Work

My mother once read a biography of Susanna Wesley, mother of the hymn writer and evangelist who founded the Methodist Church.  It described how Susanna Wesley, mother of 19 children, gave each one individual time during each week.  Granted, not all lived to adulthood, but still very impressive. Susanna Wesley, Sower Series I read the…

My Co-Sleeping Journey

My Co-Sleeping Journey

I started my parenting journey very fond of Attachment Parenting theory.  In my starry-eyed optimism I hoped wearing my baby in a sling and letting her sleep next to me in bed would produce a well adjusted child.  Having been a nervous, timid child I vowed I would make sure my daughter had no reason…

Best Family Games

Are you thinking about Christmas gifts yet? I am. Though I do not buy gifts for all of my seven siblings anymore, I do have a fast growing group of nephews and nieces. And since we really like board games for family nights, a board game is always a possibility for a gift for my…
