Whether you celebrate Easter, Passover, or the coming of Spring, this is a time of rebirth in so many ways. Be it a celebration of your spirituality, an end to Lent, or an appreciation for nature’s newness, there’s much to celebrate. Even just the return of a warmer season brings a simple, newfound joy.

If you’re having a fun celebration, taking some nice, dressy photos, or just letting the kids run around sans the heavy warm weather clothes, it’s a great time to show off your favorite fluff. (It’s also a practical way to advocate for greener practices during the month of April – aka Earth Month!)

Here are some of my favorite fresh fluff colors and prints for springtime (a handful are retired prints, so if you’re lucky enough to own one, you’re a lucky duck!):

The tribe of cloth diapering families is a wonderfully unique one. This community of parents and care givers daily step outside the “norm,” choosing products that are better for their children and the environment. The #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest celebrates this tribe, the fabulous diapers they use, and the little ones who make this stage of life so special!

Here’s how the photo contest works. Thirsties fans capture  photos of our products in their “real” lives. Then they share their images on Instagram and/or in The Thirsties Groupies Official Fan Chat on Facebook using the hashtag #ThirstiesRealLife. Every Thursday we select one or two images as that week’s feature photos. At the end of the month, these feature photos are then finalists in the #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest. Fans select the winning photo by voting for their favorite images on IG and Facebook.

Here are the March 2017 finalists and winning image:… Read More


 

It’s hard to admit that springtime has hit when we had snow as recently as Saturday in my neck of the woods. But I’m psyched to finally be able to get our kids outside more, recharge with some sunshine, and open the windows to help with spring cleaning (wow, I must be over winter if I’m anxious to get cleaning!). I love the changing of seasons, so the change is welcome!

While I know that our son will take to running the yard IMMEDIATELY, I’d like to come up with some fun, spring-themed activities (both inside and out) for our 16-month-old daughter, too.  

Here are some ideas I stumbled upon just for the wee ones that you may enjoy at your house, too:

Soda Bottle Flower Print from Inner Child Fun – Super simple stamp art AND it recycles those soda (or water) bottles. Just make sure the bottom Read More

There are a zillion methods for potty training out there these days. It seems that there are plenty of parents who have success with one – and an equal amount of families who say the same method doesn’t work. So please don’t take my ramblings today as potty training gospel. Just because I have one child who successfully navigated this tricky part of childhood doesn’t mean that I’m an expert. Far from it!

That said, I’ve decided that there’s no rush in potty training my daughter.

When my 4 ½-year-old son was younger, we had some early “hooray!” moments with potty training. I guess you could say that they were misleading…extremely. Just because we had some successes didn’t mean that it would be a simple, easy “Point A to Point B” journey to a diaper-free existence. Add to it the fact that I was pregnant with our second and there Read More
