Thirsties Duo Wraps
This will be the first year ever that we’ll be sending valentines to school with our preschooler to hand out. For snack time, we’re usually “those parents” that send in organic raisins or applesauce cups (our son recently begged us to send in pretzels…my goodness, what have we DONE to the poor kid, LOL). So, I’m doing my best to get his input to see what he’d actually LIKE to give. If he settles on some store-bought Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle version, that’s fine.
However, I’ll be showing him these ideas to see if he’s interested in getting hands-on in making some for his friends, instead. Maybe your little one will want to do the same!

We can’t think of a better way to start 2017 than with a celebration of cloth diapers and adorable little ones. Well friends, that is exactly what the #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest is ALL about! The early years of our children’s lives are here and gone before we know it. Thankfully, as photographer Roger Kingston says, “A camera is a save button for the mindseye.”
In that spirit, every month Thirsties has a fun photo contest in which folks capture and share their #ThirstiesRealLife moments on Instagram or in the Thirsties Groupies on Facebook. On Thursday every week we select one or two feature photos, which become finalists in the photo contest. At the end of the month fans vote for their favorite photos. Here are the finalists for January 2017.
This month we had a record number of votes, over 1,000! Now that’s what we call working to #makeclothmainstream! We … Read More
By far, one of our family’s favorite times is bath time. Our kids are just over 1 year and 4 years old, respectively, and are still at that “90% of the time we’re best friends” phase, so even if we wanted to keep them apart during bath time, it’d be impossible. Our daughter will literally try to climb into the tub with her clothes on; that girl is tenacious. So, splash time it is!
But, I recently realized that we’ve turned one of the funnest activities for our kids into a learning time, as well. Aside from just getting the kiddos clean, their toys and games have become learning tools. Here are our favorites…
– Foam Letters and Numbers – The easiest (and least messy) way to get your kiddos learning during bath time is to get a set (or two) of foam letters and numbers. They help kids unknowingly … Read More
