My kids DESTROYED books. Ripping, tossing, chewing and tearing – books were “well loved” at our house. Now that they are old enough to be a bit more respectful to literature, I’ve discovered Indestructibles – “built for the way babies read.” While its too late for me to put these to good use, its not too late for you!
Welcome to the first of many Project Corner posts! I hope to share projects that you can do at home with your kids. From tots to teens, I’ll try to find things to do that are fun for the whole family, and are sometimes educational! Today’s post is a fun experiment that’s easy, has great results and you probably have everything you need on hand.
Not only is this a very modern and beautiful glass sippy cup, it is also a great alternative to plastic. As much as plastic bottle and cup companies say that they are free of any harmful chemicals, the thought still crosses my mind. Plus it is one less plastic bottle in the landfill and drinks just taste better in glass anyway.
“MOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! My sock is all messed up!”
If I had $1 for every time I heard that, I would be Oprah rich. But instead, I just have to keep fixing rumpled socks. I don’t want to sound dramatic, but socks are our nemesis.
The sippy cup. The bane of my existence as a mother. I know you guys feel me on this one. My carpet is sprinkled with little spots of milk, water, whatever – that manages to leak from random sippy cups all over the place. It drives me mad. My daughter, bless her tiny adorable heart, likes to fling her sippy around without a care in the world. I can’t stop her from doing it, I’ve tried. She wants to be a big kid and do it herself, and I really don’t feel like running around behind her offering a drink every five minutes. I want to just give her the cup, and let her drink when she wants AND I want a spot free carpet. Is that too much to ask?
Believe it or not we had a hard time trying to find a lunchbox that was just right for our son. Who knew shopping for one would be so hard. I assumed we would head to the store and just grab one but most of the ones we saw were either too small to fit any food into them or too bulky. We just needed a lunchbox that would do what a lunchbox is supposed to do, hold lunches and keep them cool. California Innovations does just that. We love the the Kids H20 Lunch Pack.
I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls on behalf of Dannon. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program but my opinions are my own.
Safe alternative to top sheets and blankets

So my oldest son just started Kindergarten! This is an exciting time for us. Not only does he get to be a big kid and learn all kinds of new things like reading, but he gets to take a lunch with him! I am pretty sure he is more excited about bringing a lunch and playing with his friends than he is about reading, but that’s kind of expected with a five year old. Wait… I think that sounds fun to any age! Luckily his school has a wonderful lunch menu but we still need to provide him with snacks and we won’t be buying lunch every day either. It is so important to provide healthy snacks for your children. Not only is it giving them the nutrition they need but it also gives them the energy they need to help focus at school and play with their friends.
I have a lot of things going on at any given time. My desktop, unfortunately, isn’t always organized properly. I do like to keep icons and folders within view so that I remember things. This means that I needed an easier way to keep my desktop organized and I have just the solution.
