Favorite Books – Early Twos

I’ve always loved children’s books. I started to build our collection of books at my baby shower, when friends gave me several of their favorites. I started reading the books to Little M when he was a newborn and when I’d read a book that I liked a lot, I’d search the author’s or illustrator’s [...]

Favorite Parenting-Related Books

I’ve read a lot of parenting-related books over the past three years both during my pregnancy and after Little M’s arrival. I’ve loved some, hated a couple and found many just eeuh.

They were from our CSA but were so cool looking that they sat on our mantle for a month and then in the fridge for several more. Squash last forever [...]

Toddler Latches Board

Toddler Latches Board

For Christmas this year Little M’s Nola and Grandpa made him a latches board. They took a trip to a big hardware store and bought every kind of interesting latch they could find. As Nola said, “anything a toddler would want to get into.” Grandpa cut, sanded and sealed a small piece of cabinet grade [...]
