Considering how long I have lived in the Dallas area, there are some places that I’m ashamed to say I have never visited. I have been to a few museums in Dallas, but this was our first time at the Perot Museum! We had a blast and if you have little ones, this is probably the most kid-friendly museum you’ll find. There were families all over the place. In fact, there’s an entire children’s area that both of the boys loved. Getting them to leave was the problem! [Read more…]

I started reading books to Jayce when he was just a couple of months old; he LOVES books and I enjoy the moments we spend together. Mostly because they are the only moments where he will actually sit still with me. 😉 Even before he knew what I was even saying, I would read to him, and there’s so much evidence that shows that it makes a huge difference in a little person’s development. Babies and toddlers can learn so much from their parents reading to them daily! One of my favorite ways to get him new books is Bookroo which is a monthly subscription for kid’s books. [Read more…]

If you’re anything like me, you don’t get your holiday shopping done early, you don’t get it done on Black Friday, and around early December you’re scrambling trying to get everyone’s gifts haha. This year for part of the boy’s Christmas gifts, I got some really cute toys and books from IncrediBundles! Not only is this site perfect for parents, but it’s also great for anyone that needs to buy gifts for babies and kids. It features all award winning products and it’s so easy and foolproof thanks to their bundles! [Read more…]
Some moms might cringe at the idea of a toddler even using an iPad, but I’m just going to say it… My toddler HAS an iPad and he uses it quite a bit. I think something that’s important to keep in mind with little ones and screen time is that not every child is the same, you never know what the child is doing on the iPad, and every family makes their own choices about what is best for their children. For my son, Jayce, since he is on the Autism spectrum, things are a little different. In a way, having the iPad can decrease his anxiety, help him calm down, and be an amazing educational tool for him! He loves playing games on it and he’s very smart, so he has actually learned quite a bit on it.
