"What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?"

I had my first "what would you like to be when you grow up" conversation with the little guy yesterday in the car. Even though he's only 4 and still doesn't know all the jobs in the world (obviously.), I was curious to see what he considered to be a "cool" job. His first answer was "I want to be super S!" to which I replied "that's not really a job, plus you'll always be super S!" so he thought and thought about it and decided "how about a fireman?" "that is a job! and it requires a lot of bravery. It's a dangerous job" I said.

Block Play!

As parents, we're always looking for toys that will be played with over the course of many many years (or so we hope). I've had my fair share of regretful toy purchases, and if I could do it all over again, I'd probably only buy a handful of toys. One of the things I would definitely get is blocks. But blocks come in all sorts of brands and forms, and my vote goes to Janod! It's one of those things kids can use repetitively and for different purposes. Like legos, they encourage imaginative play and can take on any story.

Balloon Animals

Recently, our house has become balloon animal central! I bought these cute DIY balloon animal kits as a white elephant gift at christmas and we loved them so much (and they were so popular) I went back and bought another planning to use them as entertainment for S's little buddies at his 4th birthday party. As it turns out, I forgot all about them and found them weeks later inside a drawer.

We've been enjoying our last minute trip to Taiwan the past two weeks. And by last minute I mean we literally booked the tickets days before leaving. My sister super-expedited her little dude's passport so we can leave in time, and we arrived on chinese new years eve, just in time for our mama's birthday (the biggest reason we decided to go in the first place). Our flight time this time around was perfect and the kids slept throughout both flights.

When you come across a book that is super kid-friendly with it's adorable illustrations, teaches history and life values what would you do? You would get it, and read it to your child (children). And that is what I did.

4th Birthday Party!

Ahoy mateys! This past weekend was S's 4th birthday. His birthday was on sunday but we had the birthday party on saturday. I say this every year, and will probably say it for the rest of my life, but I can't believe he's 4 already!!! The party was a great success, but I have to admit that the planning process (i.e. the two days before the party) was rather stressful. We're still settling down in the new house, it's neither fully furnished nor fully decorated, but we were getting ready to have 20 guests in the house (and that was me trying to keep it as small as possible).

I Say: Leggings For All!

If you ask me, I'd tell you without a doubt, that babies look the cutest in little baby leggings. They should just wear them everyday. It shows off that fluffy diaper butt, it's comfortable to move in and sleep in and they come in the most adorable prints. I know that they're a little more feminine and that once little boys become toddlers leggings aren't the most appropriate thing. Otherwise, trust me, my little dude would be wearing leggings all day long! I want a little girl just so I can have a giant legging collection.

Box Play

A little while ago, we came across these eco-friendly recycling craft stickers for repurposing boxes, cartons and tubes while we were shopping and we thought it was such a fun idea. They are by Box Play for Kids. Our kids love playing with none-toys and making them toys anyway (S was fascinated with milk cartons, toilet paper rolls and egg cartons and he collected them in his play kitchen), so to turn them into actual toys is plain and simple - smart.

Yellow Owl Workshop products are the definition of whimsical and fun, and the same can be said about their party kits. You all know I plan parties and even though it's on a much smaller scale now, when I do plan them, I think about everything.

A Belated Happy New Year!

It's been forever since I've blogged, and we've since moved to our new house and spent our first Christmas and New year here. It's still a work in progress, but we love it and love that we know we made the right decision picking (what hopefully is) is our forever home because let's face it, moving sucks so much I don't want to ever do it again. I've already made a pact with friends to stop me from moving (whatever the cost). Yes, I hate it that much. So ofcourse, our house is still filled with boxes and our walls are still bare.
