Kid-Friendly DIY Captain Underpants Craft

We’ve teamed up with Captain Underpants to celebrate the launch of his twelfth epic novel called Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-a-Lot. Written by Dav Pilkey. We were asked to present a kid-friendly craft that was inspired by the book so I asked my daughter what she had in mind. She came up with the cutest project ever. This DIY holds a special place in my heart because it was all done by her. The pictures, the drawing, the cutting, the gluing, coloring, everything. She took her inspiration and ran with it.

The Newborn Schedule That Saved My Sanity (Read This If Your Baby Doesn’t Sleep Much At Night)

When your newborn comes into the world, the last thing you really want to think about is a schedule or routine. You really are just trying to survive at that point. For the first month, I just tried to sleep whenever I could and I just remember her wanting to eat ALL THE TIME. It was constant. Now, as she is older, she’s starting to know the difference between night and day so it was my job as a mom to help her adjust a little bit. I didn’t want to do anything drastic but I knew she was confused because she wanted to sleep all day and she was up all night. I didn’t want to deprive her of sleep or cause confusion so I went to our family pediatrician (who is amazing, by the way!) and he offered some simple advice. My daughter went from sleeping only a few hours at a time at night to sleeping 7 hours now. A few simple adjustments and we have been on a constant routine for the last week, it’s been great. Here is the advice I was given and what we do to achieve some rest at night:


Paper Plates aka Sanity Savers

I’ve mentioned this before, many times. We have been living off of paper plates these last few months after having a new baby. I’m sorry but both my husband and I barely have time to shower, I don’t know how some people do it! We did however attempt to do a grocery store run with the little one and we both survived!!! That was awesome.
