Celebrate

Yup, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with children’s books! Boy, how our lives sure have changed since our younger days.

But, seriously, it’s never too early to read to children. My husband and I have both worked in libraries (I’m a school librarian), so we feel that it’s important to instill this love of books in our children. It creates a solid foundation of learning, opens a whole new world of imagination, and offers an opportunity for routine bonding time…honestly, the rewards go on and on.

So, today I’m sharing some favorite children’s books to help get your kids in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit!

I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to take more time off for our second baby (due to a miscalculation, I actually didn’t take the full leave – actually ANY time, since he was born during summer break – I should have for our first), to write and work on my own projects, to snuggle and experience the sweet newness of our sweet girl, and to help our son through the emotional transition.

Unless you’re a cloth diapering expert (and I know many of you are!), we all have an area of the cloth diapering world that we haven’t tried out. Maybe you only use cloth part of the time. Maybe you’re just in the “research stage” of cloth diapering and are too scared to give it a go. Maybe you’re only using disposable wipes.

Well, why not use Leap Day as an excuse to give something a try? You may find out that cloth is easier to get the hang of than you expected. You may find your *favorite* new style of cloth. Or, you may fall in love with Thirsties’ new organic cloth wipes AND … Read More
