Thirsties Thursday Giveaway:
I think my son, Brennan, was a little over two years when he became obsessed with taking his diaper off. That was back in the day when diapers with snaps were a rarity so toddler removal was fairly easy. Thankfully, he grew out of the phase and I learned my lesson by putting him in pants that also had snaps. Then, a few months before he turned three he started the potty training process; we went with the naked approach which was effective, however, it created a little nudist! Many times I could be heard exclaiming, “Brennan put your clothes on!” Naturally, these phases passed but there’s one phase that we recently went through that had me wanting to rip my hair out!
It started out with an obsession with pajamas. Brennan would get dressed in the morning and by lunchtime he was in a new pair of PJ’s. Afternoon … Read More

It may be a little ritual that you take a few minutes for, such as going outside for some fresh air and sun, staring out the window and nibbling on a chocolate, or relaxing in an oversized chair with throw and a cup of hot apple cider. (Those are some of my favorite things!) It may be something that takes more time such as, “Hey kids, let’s go to the park and throw the Frisbee!” or “Honey, let’s go out tonight, just you and me!” It is not … Read More
I think my awareness of taking care of the environment started out by watching the ’90′s TV show Clarissa Explains it All. The main character, Clarissa, always had awesome earrings and crazy bright colors to go with her outfit. One of the episodes was about recycling and reusing waste and for that episode Clarissa (played by actress, Melissa Joan Heart) wore these cool globe earrings. Sigh. Clarissa was so cool; anyways, that’s really when I started taking notice of the environment and the impact I have on it.
Fast forward a couple decades and insert one baby and well, you’ve got quite the dilemma. Now I need to think about the impact I’m making on the environment not only for myself but for my children who will (hopefully) be here longer than I will be. When my husband and I decided to use cloth diapers on our son … Read More
