Healthy Kid Lunches #1

I started posting pictures of Cupcakes' lunches on Instagram / Twitter with the hashtag #HealthyKidLunches… A while ago, my posts, a combined 100 Healthy Meal and Snack Ideas for Your Toddler was wildly popular.  Since people seemed to like my healthy food ideas and I'm passionate about my kids getting healthy foods anyway, I thought I'd write some similar posts.  And also, I didn't mind the traffic!  Not gonna lie… So here were Cupcakes' healthy lunches from last week.  I threw a #1 in the … [Read more...]

Cutest Face, Teachers, Floss & other Saturday Laughs

5. Last night, Cupcakes was dragging a thing of dental floss all around our apartment saying, "Come here, Doggie."  She keeps telling us she wants a doggie from Santa, but it seems to me that this dental floss is doing just fine.  Maybe I'll call Santa and have him just send some more dental floss... 4. Will you still love it [the baby] if it's a brother? "No..." Well I hope she was just kidding because... 3. I was complaining about having to be "the bad guy" and my husband said, "well … [Read more...]

Good morning, Birthday Girl!!! "I'm this number!" Cupcakes with her class.  Wearing a birthday crown, of course.  :) Birthday present from Mommy & Daddy: 1st Movie Theater Experience --> Disney's Frozen <-- It was phenomenal!  And Cupcakes was captivated the entire time. I cried throughout much of the movie.  Hobbs said he didn't.  There were some rough parts, but great movie, great message about sacrificial love!  In general, it was a lot of fun too.

It Doesn’t Hurt: A Saturday Laugh

Cupcakes has been doing this thing for the last week that leaves me in hysterics.  It got started last weekend when she was putting one of her hair clips on my ear.  She kept assuring me, "It doesn't hurt." but in this hilarious voice while squinting her eyes and slowly shaking her head.  I don't know why any of the last three variables went with the sentence, but I've been having her do it all the time.  It makes me laugh so hard!  I just love it.  It's probably funnier in real life, but I got … [Read more...]
