Happy Holidays!

I got to photograph a few families this weekend at a Christmas tree farm, so we snuck in a few pictures of our own with the little light we had. This session didn't last long, my two are anti-pictures and I was hangry ha ha. My mom stepped in to take a couple of us also. Great idea for cheap DIY photos! We're using ours (we have a few more) for Christmas cards this year. Fun props go a long way to make for great pictures!

3 signs that remind you that you have a toddler

1. You have realized that your child throws/feeds the dogs/spills more food than they actually eat. How do they do that, but still manage to have all the energy and then some. Funny how that works.

2. You've come to accept you're a mini jungle gym. YES mom...you are subject to be climbed on at all times. Who needs fancy toys, playgrounds when you've got mom or dad to climb on??

3. Diaper changes are like a mini wrestling match. And yet you're probably a pro at this point, but I bet sometimes that diaper change counts as your cardio for the week. Unless it requires a glass of wine too -- that kinda cancels it all.

All jokes aside, I love the little tornadoes that toddlers can be!

DIY slime without borax or glue!

  1. 1 and 1/2 cups of water 
  2. 3 drops of food coloring 
  3. 2 cups cornstarch 
  4. 1 tsp cream of tartar
I love this SIMPLE slime recipe. It is very very messy, but of course fun. Heat the water until warm and pour into cup. Meanwhile add cornstarch, and tartar in a bowl. Mix the coloring with water, and add to the cornstarch bowl. Stir, play, and store in a Ziploc bag.

This is definitely for older kids. I love that no glue or borax is used.

DIY playdough

Here's a great DIY playdough recipe with no alum, or harsh chemicals. Great for small kids, be sure to store in air tight container.

1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of canola oil
1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
2-3 drops of food coloring 

Grab a medium pot, mix flour, salt and oil into the pan on medium heat. Add the water (slowly), as well as drops of desired colored. Keep stirring until it becomes tough (not too tough). Allow it to cool, knead, then play or store.

Review: Rainbow Light's Power Sours vitamins

I was recently given the opportunity to sample Rainbow Light vitamins thanks to Moms Meet, and I have to say my four year old LOVES them. Rainbow Light Power Sours® Multivitamin Gummies provide essential nutrition for children ages 4+, and contain an extra boost of vitamin C.   Power Sours Multivitamin Gummies promote healthy bones, brain, and eyes, plus balanced energy. And get this -- they are both additive and preservative free plus non-gmo. Yay!

As a mom I appreciate them being available in convenient packets which my four year old (mr I wanna be independent) can proudly open himself. Plus it helps him understand that's all he can take for the day. He finds them very tasty, and always starts each day asking me for his vitamins. I'm happy to see the vitamins providing and encouraging growth & development especially with how busy and active kids are; they need it.

About Rainbow Light:
Rainbow Light®, the #1 most trusted natural vitamin brand* , delivers research-based formulations that include a blend of superfoods, organic, non-GMO spirulina, plant enzymes, probiotics, and botanicals for enhanced digestion, absorption, and a difference you can feel. Rainbow Light has formalized its 30 year history of good corporate citizenship with its Circle of Care program, encompassing the company’s work as founding supporter of Vitamin Angels and a growing network of aid partners to provide life-saving nutrition to mothers and babies everywhere. Rainbow Light keeps over 10 million plastic bottles out of the waste stream annually with its trademarked, 100% upcycled EcoGuard™ bottles.

While I didn't try them (I am nursing), Paul also loved them. My four year old will often make remarks to him for taking his vitamins, it's so funny. I am delighted to say Rainbow Light is definitely the family vitamin of choice!

For us moms, Rainbow Light offers a Women’s One™ Multivitamin, with potent vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, superfoods, and herbs to help nourish, protect, and support major systems of a woman’s body, and promote natural energy, in just one tablet each day.
