I've written about cleaning hacks and ideas before, but I wanted to dedicate an entire post to dealing with cleaning solutions I have discovered over the years for those seemingly impossible tasks like getting stains out of your carpet or crayons off of your walls. All of these remedies use every day products that you should have around your home so they are cheep and effective. I hope you can find these useful in caring for your home!
I am sure you have seen my Newlie diaper bag over the past few months if you follow me on Instagram, because I LOVE it! I have the Newlie Louise Backpack Diaper Bag in Black and I firmly believe it is the most versatile bag I've ever owned! You can wear it as a backpack, shoulder bag or tote and you can barely tell that it is a diaper bag. I have been wearing this bag everywhere and wanted to compile a few different outfits that I've put together with this bag. Whether you want to dress sporty, trendy, or just in your good old mom uniform, this diaper bag looks fantastic.
I've talked in the past about how difficult it can be for a mom to get ready in the morning with little minions pulling at their legs and dumping things in the toilet. However, I often forget to talk about the men in our lives. They also need time to get ready, but with their wives yelling for help or the little ones driving cars up their legs, it can be difficult to find time for dad to properly groom. With the The Perfecter: Beard Boss Stubble and Detail Kit by Remington, dad has a compact, efficient, and quick way to groom his facial hair in the mornings- meaning less time in the bathroom and more time wresting their littles into brushing their teeth.
How do you prepare for having a toddler?! Oliver is almost two and I feel like I just got done preparing for infancy and baby proofing the house for a crawler. Toddlerhood is a weird age where your child is in a constant state of learning yet still can't properly communicate or do all of the things that they want. It is important, as a parent, to provide an environment that helps foster the new skills that your toddler needs to learn.
There are 4 main areas that your toddler should be developing:
Life Skills, Vocabulary, Hand Eye Coordination, and Potty Training.
I recently went on a shopping spree at The Baby Cubby to get our house ready to help Oliver transition out of infancy and into a thriving kid. Baby Cubby makes me so happy because their store is filled with thoughtfully curated products so you don't have to sift through millions of choices. They spend hundreds of hours finding the right products to make it easier for us moms! It is different from any online store I have shopped at and I wish I had made my baby registry through them. I was able to pick up everything that I wanted to get ready for toddlerhood in one "trip" to the store!
