Toddler Christmas List Ideas
Halloween has passed and so we all know what that means: it’s time to start prepping for Christmas! I know I know, what about Thanksgiving? We love that day too, but Christmas preparations need to begin right away.

That paci was simultaneously the bane of my existence and after 2 solid years of use, I was over it.
So how did I wean my binky-dependent 2 year old off a pacifier? Read below to find out! (more…)
