So here we were, in the rain, minding our own business...

Fun With Ticks and Jane

So here we were, in the rain, minding our own business… Yes, yes; I know. There is no “fun” where ticks are concerned. Frankly, anything that sucks blood out of my body without my permission (which would be denied, by the way) is free to go suck something else. However, I do like to spend […]

May Activities for Infants/Toddlers

I shared previously that I will be attempting to plan activities for Little Lion this year based on a monthly theme. May’s theme is Little Critters. These activities are intended for Little Lion, who will be 14 months old, but they could easily be adapted for an older or younger child. Please consider your child’s current […]


Some Tips on Traveling WITHOUT Your Kids

Can You Do Me A Favor

Drake is at the amazing age where he is learning more about his own independence as well as trying out new abilities and accomplishments.  Along with that he is also developing a understanding of what he wants and doesnt want, which doesn’t always line up with what mommy and daddy want for him. These two […]
