Alli has recently been intrigued with all things space related. But, prior to this interest, she’s spent about a year being interested in the moon. So, what better way to kick off some space activities, than one involving our old friend Luna?
Why is it that adults find it entertaining to ask young children if they have a girlfriend/boyfriend? I’m sure you’ve heard it before. Your kid has a friend of the opposite sex at daycare. “Is that your boyfriend?” or “You’re how old? Do you have a boyfriend yet?”
Sure, they don’t mean anything by it; it’s all in good fun. It’s meant as a joke.
If you’re on the internet at all you’ve seen slime. It’s a quick easy sensory activity. And, kids love it! Plus, it’s a great way to teach kids about chemical reactions and the properties of a polymer. So, Alli and I whipped up a batch.
Taking your children outside can be a daunting task. A multitude of things can go wrong even in the comfort of civilization. But, with the right preparation and knowledge it can be a fun experience for both you and your children.

Springtime is here and that means dress season. I love it when I can just pop a dress on Alli and she’s good to go. No color coordinating. No matching patterns. It’s so easy that even my husband drops her off to school looking like he has a sense of fashion.
Lately, Alli has been going through the princess dress phase. Anytime she has on a yellow dress, she’s Belle. So, when her school announced that they were having a Trolls themed picnic as their spring party, her first request was a Poppy dress.
Not having a lot of time, I defaulted to a pillowcase style dress. They are super cute and super easy.
