Mommy Monday - Toddler Grooming



See this little diva..? Cute, right? 
She's not that cute when I'm trying to brush her hair or cut her nails. 
Two things I like to do fairly regularly to her.

So how do I cut her nails/brush her hair..? Simple!! Just add water!!

I sound like an infomercial now..

Whenever Kaley is especially fussy I put her in the bath and as she drinks her juice and plays with her toys I brush her hair.
That ponytail was done with love!!

On her not to fussy days I give her a toothbrush to play with, put her in a dry sink (it's like your own salon chair), and cut her nails/brush her hair in there. This tip also works for snot removal. 

Any toddler grooming tips you would like to share?

Thankful Tuesday

I am so thankful for my husband!! We're almost 10 years together and we love celebrating each other. I know that not everyone is not a fan of Valentine's Day, but in this crazy & hectic world, what's wrong with having a day dedicated to love?
I love you babe!!

What are you thankful for?

Mommy Monday - Kaley's Favorite Books

Being stuck indoors all day with a 1 year old is ROUGH!! It currently feels like -10 and a snow storm coming tomorrow. Ouch!! Our saving grace has been books (and Doc McStuffins on demand).

Here are Kaley's 3 Favorite books right now...

 You can see they've all been extra loved/read. 

The Itsy-Bitsy Spider
The Itsy Bitsy Spider has tabs that she loves because it lets her turn the pages on her own. 

The Furry Arms Hotel
Elmo is her favorite character and she loves when I do my Elmo voice as I read this.

Toes, Ears, & Nose!
I love this boo!! It's a simple way to teach your baby their body parts. Note: Kaley has ripped several of the lift up flaps, but she still loves the book! She sticks the flaps she's ripped up into other as bookmarks. 

How do you pass the time when you're stuck inside the house?
