Life Lately...

This week is spring break! And even though it's been raining everyday and we didn't have anything in particular planned, it's nice to just have quiet time at home (it's even nicer not to have to plan school lunches for a change). Four year old has been a great age so far! Like most moms, I loved every stage we've been through, and at every age I say it's my favorite, so here I am again thinking four is my current favorite. I do miss the baby stages though, the chubby thighs and baby cuddles. Lucky for me, I have my baby nephew for that.

Paint The Walls Rainbow

Everyone who knows me knows I love colors and I'm not afraid to use them. Being a mama to a fun little boy just gives me more room and opportunity to play with colors. I have loved playing interior designer to S's rooms. His last room was painted a bright orange and now that he's a bigger little boy, I went with a blue-ish gray and a super fun wallpaper in his new room (I'll share his room with you when it's completely finished). I think parents should let their inner child(s) shine through their little ones. Don't be afraid to play with color when decorating.

Silverware In A Box

When I go out with my mommy friends, I always see them whip out a ziploc bag that holds forks, spoons and food-cutting scissors. And I thought to myself "there must be someone out there who sells boxed utensil sets to make it easier for parents!" and boy was I wrong. It is so hard to find here! We always used boxed utensil sets that have a lid that slides on. The set includes a toddler spoon, fork and a pair of toddler chopsticks. But we got both ours sets from Asia.

Some moms (dads, grandparents, care-takers) think of the most wonderful ways to preserve their little ones childhood memories. If I had a bottle for every detail I wanted to save of S from babyhood to now, my shelf would be toppling over already. So we try and get creative because there are things we never ever want to forget. I love love love what this mom (blogger of A Thousand Words) did with her little guy's art work.

I came across this Kickstarter product SnipSnap by Double Double yesterday on Pinterest. I didn't need a description, I just saw the picture. And I thought it was a brilliant idea! Instead of buying a sippy cup (and almost all sippy cups have problems), why not buy a snap on silicone lid that fits on any cup any where? They have a tot version (that has a spout) and a kid version (with a straw insert).

If you don't already know, Hatch is the best place for fashionable maternity clothes. They're stuff is so cute, I want to get them even though I'm not pregnant. The prints, the cuts and the colors. I'll let their spring/summer 2014 line speak for itself...

"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.
