My little babes.
We have fun. It's the main ingredient in our home life. And with my little babes...breathable play clothes are an absolute necessity. Enter Little Babe Designs!
We've moved out of the pink phase...mostly!...and entered a fashion chapter dedicated to matching our moods. Lola's ABCD shirt could not be more fitting. She's my rocker babe. She also proclaimed that she loved this tee because it was "so soft."
Olivia's I'm With The Band sweatshirt also struck a chord. In case you didn't know, Olivia wants to be a pop star when she grows up. And yes, we have the SING soundtrack on repeat at our house.
My two cuties are in the midst of defining their fashion sense but one thing is for sure - Little Babe Designs assisted in channeling our inner rockstars. Get onboard with your little dude or dudette and rock some really rad kids fashion, stat!

I have a story for you. I've been trying to decide whether or not to share it but I think there is a good message and furthermore, I know my children know they are loved. So, here it goes...
Before school got out, I volunteered one morning to assist with Field Day.
When I look at a 60-minute increment, a 30-minute increment, hand to God, I often think how many things can I accomplish in that time frame? It sounds a little insane but as a busy, working mom - efficiency is everything. But efficiency does not mean you have to sacrifice fun. Making the ordinary tasks in life a fun activity is my role as a mother. Enter bath time!
Starting holiday traditions is one of the things we most look forward to and everything kicks off in November. Although it makes for very busy weekends...they bring the most smiles.
Every year we head downtown for the Annual Light Festival which takes place on the Magnificent Mile...better known as Michigan Avenue.
We loved this book! I've read it weekly to my kids as there is so much "new" in their little lives with teachers, classrooms, routines and new friends. But it's a bit of a role reversal because this books is all about prepping their teachers for a rad school year. Meet this week's Brightly Book is: How to Get Your Teacher Ready. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:
School has begun! What a whirlwind week y'all! Happy to report that both kiddos seem happy and well adjusted. Let's all hi-5! Speaking of hi-5's, Dad chose this week's book reco as his favorite by far. And you'll see why. This week's Brightly Book is: Magic Tree House: A Big Day for Baseball. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:
We loved loved loved this week's Brightly Book: We're All Wonders. It explores the differences in all of us which came at a tremendous time as my girls have been incredibly inquisitive about hair color, skin color and beyond. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:
We are through and through a Seuss family. I was so excited when my girls quickly adopted this author's books into their little bedroom libraries. And let's be honest...they are an easy read on the days when you've been put through the ringer in life and as a parent. I am nothing if I am not brutally honest!
School is coming up so quick we can smell it! Let's just say we've been spending a LOT of extra time reading at night to wipe off the cobwebs. It's good to get back to our roots and the girls are enjoying a little mom and dad time sans television which...here, here to that!
Parental friends! I am so excited to be partnering with Lands' End on a special summer initiative regarding our littles...because let's face it, we all want to keep them entertained but we often forget that fun doesn't mean a three-ring circus daily. Sometimes it's about revisiting the basics. By basics I am referring to keeping learning fun and ensuring that they stay fresh as a new school year approaches. Hard to even wrap our heads around, right?
