    Airplane Toys for Toddlers – Parenting Without Technology

    We love to travel and as many times I say that I think, do we really love it? First child and it was some kind of learning curve. She did not properly sleep till she was 2 so any trip meant even less sleep and I would almost dread it long before we left. Everyone talks about how terrible air travel is with toddlers and I say it is a whole lot better than driving 16 hours with them strapped in a car seat going completely crazy no matter what you give them! You can actually have some sort of movement in a plane. Its so much better when they…

    Healthy On The Go Snacks For Kids

    We are on the go a lot. So healthy on the go snacks for kids was a must! Our closest town is 45 min away so we spend a lot of time in our car! My husband farms and a lot of afternoons are spent in tractors and trucks and we have found snacks to be an absolute must when it comes to children! No hangry children if you are willing to plan just a bit and have some handy! On The Go So as handy dandy as prepackaged snacks are I try to avoid them! You can buy them in bulk for a lot cheaper and package them yourself…

    Traveling Tips For Toddlers – What You Really Need

    The one thing I dreaded when our sweet girl was born was travel. I live 1000 miles from my family in Canada and it is a 16-hour drive that we try to make at least twice a year. We had a Grandma in Phoenix that was getting older and needing visitors. We had family spread all over the USA and Canada that we were close to and wanted to see. Family on Mission trips all over the world. Never mind a few fun vacations here and there on top of that! I was determined to not let it stop us. It. Is. Exhausting. There are many things I wish I…

    Summer Dresses for Girls – Breezy, Cool, And Practical

    Summer dresses for girls. We have a princess in the house and she always appreciates a good dress that makes her dance and twirl. I get visions of summer in my head when I think of summer dress shopping. To me that includes color and comfort and practicality. They have to be breezy, cool and can withstand the heat of summer. Fun dresses to twirl and play in. Ice cream parlor visits and zoo days. Trips to the playground and picnics for lunch. Fun dresses to enjoy the heat of summer and practical enough to be able to play in a sprinkler when you see one! Days of sidewalk chalk…

    Freshly Picked – Reviewing A Baby Shoe Staple

    I love a good baby shoe and I sure love a good baby moccasin! This moccasin has the best of both worlds, going from casual to dressy in a snap! The best part is that they are so super comfortable, easy to put on and last till the next growth spurt! You do not need any other kind of shoe! They work with socks and without socks as they are made from the softest vegan leather so no blisters or wear on that gorgeous skin! We have worn moccasins through thick and thin and they are warm enough for winter but cool enough for summer. Winter time requires socks, but…

    Baby Girl Shoes – Mom With A Mission

    The shoes have always got me and I dreamed of baby girl shoes. Bows, pink, ribbons on them. I spent many an hour dreaming of shoes online and in the store and there is a lot to dream about! When you have a 4lb 15 oz baby, the shoes just are not going to fit. Not a one stayed on those teeny tiny narrow feet! Those little feet stayed little for a very long time! Summer was not to bad because barefoot isn’t the worst thing and you can always throw a blanket over those adorable feet! So many shoes came off under a blanket. I wonder how many pairs…

    Easter Dresses for Toddlers – Morning Services to Afternoon Fun

    Ah Easter, the awakening of Spring and all things summer! Easter always feels like the gateway to a new season. I love Easter and we always dress up. Church in the morning and then the big dinner and easter egg hunts in the afternoon followed by sugar fueled energy and probably no naps! It is a good time to get started on the summer outfits as it is almost time for that again and the winter clothes just feel dark and tired by now! Put away the boots and pull out the slip on sneakers and sandals! Pull out the bright yellow and pinks and blues. Easter Morning Dress We…

    Skinny Jeans for Girls – Best Fit For Petites

    Jeans. Wonderful and yet complicated! I have a petite daughter who is mostly a complete princess. The thing is we live on a farm and jeans are a must when it comes to working outside and so much safer! Leggings are good but leggings and mud are not quite as good of a pair. Nothing keeps mud off quite like jeans. They are also warm and we throw on wind breaking pants and you have warm enough spring pants to go splash in the puddles. We have to be pretty practical around here. They are truly so versatile and go with anything. From farm girl to princess in a hurry.…

    Toddler Shoes – Farm Girl to Sunday Best

    Shoes, shoes, shoes. Pink, sparkly, dressy, casual. Truly endless, until you have smaller, petite child. I have a confession. I love shoes and when I found out we were having a girl, well, lets just say my mind might have gone to shoes first! I wandered the aisle and dreamed about what that little girl would one day wear. I bought tiny infant ones that looked so tiny I though they might even be too small. Then she was born. Not a shoe or sock fit her tiny 4lb 15 oz beautiful feet! The little dear went barefoot for the first 3 months of her life! Those feet stayed small…

    Toddler Swimsuits – Safety Plus Style

    There is nothing as fun as toddler swimsuits and sunny summer days! Pool days are the best. But make sure you are safe out there. You need snacks, hydration and practice sun safety as much as you possibly can. We started pool days at a very young age and our daughter has gone into the toddler stage and water so easily. I love everything about it and finding the right swimsuit has been all part of it! The baby stage is so much easier because it seems like anything fits! Then the running and swimming and crazy water days arrive with an active toddler and all of a sudden just…
