Magnetic Calendar

Our little guy already knows the days of the week, but I'm not sure he fully understands the concept yet. I've been thinking I need to teach him the months of the year soon, and explain how the months relate to the four seasons of the year. It's always easier to teach something new if the method of teaching is fun and engaging, so when I came across this magnetic calendar at the toy store the other day, I was pretty excited!

Digital things have made our lives so much easier haven't they? So much so that you can buy digital packs of posters and card designs and instantly print them out at your home printer, and voila, you have a product! Caravan is a digital download website that sells.. well, digital downloads. They have fun designs of calendars, toys, posters and chalk art. I've seen printable downloads on Etsy, but I'm kind of digging the idea of an entire store based on that idea.

Delightful Books: Gaston

It took us one read at the bookstore to purchase this book for our library. The illustrations by Christian Robinson are adorable and his color choices are impeccable. The story Gaston, written by Kelly DiPucchio, is one about two dog mama's taking home the wrong pups and raising them as their own.

Now that the new school year has started, we're back to bento-making three days a week. It used to be a challenge at the beginning, but I'm so used to it now. I'm the first to wake up and I try to work quietly in the kitchen as to not wake anyone else up. But Lilo usually follows me to the kitchen shortly after and the sound of her nails on the hardwood floors is what wakes the little guy up. We like the school day morning routines. I just have to make sure everyone is fed and ready to go, and daddy drops him off at school.

I believe that decals are truly one of the best inventions ever. The fact that they can now be made into wallpaper size sheets is simply awesome-sauce! Even though they're "temporary" they stick on well and you will barely be able to tell the difference between a decal and real wallpaper. There is no better room in the house for decals than a little one's room or playroom. There are so many very cute decals of everything you can think of under the moon.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. We went to a friend's birthday party where S got to play on a slip and slide, swung around on a tree rope and kicked around a soccer ball all day long. It was also his first time beating a pinata to near death. What is it about kids and pinatas? Do they just have this built up aggression bottled inside all their little bodies they need to get out? Or do they really want to see what's inside the pinata? I don't know, but each of the kids were so eager for their turn with the bat.

These past few days, we keep driving by tents being set up for pumpkin patches. Seeing all the orange, black and white buntings and the hay stacks was a little bit of a shock because I didn't realize we were so close to the holiday season already! Can YOU believe we're getting ready for Halloween? This means I need to start thinking about Halloween costumes, and I need to think fast!

Baby YumYums: Beech-Nut

Since having our baby four and a half years ago, the baby world has changed a lot. We already had it pretty good, but these days I see the new baby products and I'm actually jealous! It's no surprise that mommies and daddies are coming up with new things that work better for their children. More comfortable seats, lunch boxes that keep foods warm, bibs that are comfortable and practical at the same time.. the list is endless. Beech-Nut baby food is no exception! I so wish we had this back in the day (haha it feels like a long time ago).

What's a party without any balloons? Ok maybe that's not entirely true, but they are a fun addition! And these days, a lot of photoshoots involve balloons too because they add a fun pop of color, and they seriously come in all sorts of colors and shapes and forms now. We all know about regular latex balloons, you know, the ones you can get at a grocery store. And lately, everyone's been introduced to round latex balloons which comes in many sizes. But I wanted to show you all these other kinds because there are so many great ways to use balloons!

Today is the first day of the last year of preschool for our little guy. The end of summer means I am back to blogging! I apologize for the sporadic blodding over the summer break, but having S home everyday means full-time mommyhood so I'm very grateful for your patience and understanding. It was a great summer. And unlike a lot of my other mommy friends, I felt like it flew by too quickly. For some reason I feel like S was just in school a week ago and now I'm packing his book bag again. Must be the old age because apparently the older you get the quicker time seems to pass by *sigh*.
