A Day in the Life of Our Tend Toddler

Day in the Life of a Tend Toddler Pin

What's a day like in our home? For our kids? Gee, I never really stopped to think about it, because, aren't "typical days" kinda boring? That's what I thought before I had the wonderful opportunity to be involved in a video project with Huggies. The camera crew arrived and set up in our house, and the ...

Kids: 2 Parents: 0 (I need a vacation)

aqua resorts

Today was one of those days.  We're in the middle of gutting our bathroom and I had a solid hour of time helping my husband in the bathroom this afternoon while my youngest napped.  That meant the older 2 kids were left to their own devices downstairs.  For an hour. In that hour, my children decided ...

Carter's  Girls Fall

I love Carter's.  It's one of my favorite brands for my kids.  I'll be one sad lady when there are no more Carter's labels in my house.  Thankfully we're years away from that stage.  Back to school shopping is almost upon us and I'm already checking out Carter's for some pieces for the kids to ...

Is your little one a fan of Sesame Street?  My daughter, Savannah, just loves this show, especially when Elmo, Zoey and Cookie Monster appear on the screen.  Since welcoming Savannah in 2010, I have been exposed to shows and toys that were a big part of my childhood and which I have fond memories off.  So, when she ...

Protecting your baby from RSV

baby girl

My youngest daughter was born just over a month prematurely.  Her birth was nothing if not eventful- she was a double footling breach baby, and between my arrival at the hospital and her birth, I think maybe 30 minutes passed?  I can't say for sure because I was under general anesthesia at the time.  She ...
