DIY tiny hands crepe paper flowers

It is so nice to take an entire day to appreciate all the mothers out there on Mother’s Day!  I wanted to make a Mother’s day project that children could participate in creating, and these crepe paper flowers made out of tracings of their tiny hands were perfect!

Five things I will (try) not (to) do as a parent.

I think I can safely say that one of my favorite movies ever is Babies. I saw it in the theater way back in 2009, long before I was considering becoming a parent myself (although I must have had some sort of subconscious awareness of what was to come, because I made Mr. Owl go with […]
