With a maiden name like McCoy, it’s pretty clear that I’m a huge fan of St. Patrick’s Day. I’m also a history buff and amateur genealogist, so I love that a holiday exists that allows us to celebrate our Irish heritage (even for those of us with zero “green” in our blood).
So, I thought I’d share a handful of ways for you and your family to mark St. Patrick’s Day that don’t involve spending the day at the pub (or church, as true Irish Catholics observe the day in the old world; of course you’re welcome to if you see fit).

Blowouts, what blowouts? At least that’s the question cloth diapering families ask, but blowouts are a common occurrence when using disposables. Why else would there be onsies and baby tees with blowout puns on them! Thirsties Duo Wraps are the ultimate blowout blockers, with gentle yet secure elastics at the waist and legs plus double leg gussets for extra leak protection. You can use Duo Wraps over a variety of absorbent cloth diapering options like prefolds or fitteds. Did you know that Duo Wraps are great at preventing blowouts when used over a disposable diaper as well? If you need to take a break from cloth or you regularly use disposables and are tired of dealing with blowouts, Thirsties Duo Wraps have you covered!

But, I’m concerned about the kids’ sleep schedules. With daylight saving time fast approaching, I get a little frantic about how it’ll affect everyone in the house.
So, I did a bit of research and found a couple of great resources that I thought I’d share with you. And if you don’t have the time to peruse each one, I’ve given a quick review/summary of them to make it even easier on you.
For the record, we have a five-year-old boy, a 2-year-old girl, and a 4-month-old girl. My husband and I both work full-time. … Read More
