Minnie’s Bow-Tique

I was thrilled when Minnie's Bow-Tique showed up in the mail the other day because Katie had never seen any of Minnie or Micky's Shows before. I think that this one was the perfect one to start her off with!Filled with vibrant colors and delightful music, Minnie's Bow-Tique completely has Katie's full attention. She loves the theme song to the Micky Mouse Clubhouse as well as the song Hot Dog. In fact the Hot Dog song gets stuck in both my husband and my head. Ethan and Rowan also seem to … [Read more...]

It’s hard to get your z’s when your a mommy!

I don't know about you, but I have lost my ability to get a good nights sleep. I blame Katie. She was a horrible sleeper as an infant. Hardly any naps during the day and up every 2 hours at night. Thankfully she has gotten a little better, with most nights sleeping through, but holy moly this mommy is tired! I can't seem to shut my brain off at night. It's replaying the day, worrying about money, the kids etc. Where the heck is my off button?A couple weeks ago a package came to my … [Read more...]
