You have offered your baby countless foods and used all sorts of silly tricks like “Open up for the airplane!” but your baby is still refusing to eat anything besides their bottle and maybe some puffs. Frustration sets in and you want to pull your hair out. When your baby won’t eat solids it is hard to find the patience to figure out the problem.
Say it isn’t so. That sweet little one has figured out how to escape their crib. Most kids get to this point at one time or another. It happens at different ages for every child, making it pretty unpredictable. If you are one of the lucky ones, your child may not do this but, more often than not; your baby climbing out of crib is going to test your parenting.

The fact that October is RSV awareness month brings back scary memories in our family.
In February of 2010 my sons were both sick with what we thought were colds. One of my sons was worse than the other. The new symptom he had that I had never seen before was fast breathing. Talk about scary. I started using Dr. Google and thought, “oh no, is this a symptom of RSV”?
Trying to get a toddler to stop hitting can seem an awful lot like trying to run a marathon in quicksand, with bricks tied to your feet. Contrary to what it may seem like, it is possible to curb the behavior.

Every mom at some point after having multiple children has to make a major decision. Minivan vs SUV.
Some people have a huge stigma with driving a minivan and think it is not cool and some people embrace it. I have had both a minivan and a SUV and love both for different reasons. If you are deciding which vehicle is right for you I will give you my pros and cons of driving both.
Have you ever picked up a kid for carpool and the mom asks to put the sports bag in your trunk and you freeze? If you open your trunk you know it will be super embarrassing but you have to do it. With all of our sports bags, outdoor chairs and blankets we need every weekend, just adding in one or two school bags makes our trunk look unorganized and messy. The trick is how to organize your car trunk and have it stay organized.
I went online to check out how all the super organized moms in the world keep their trunk looking great. Here are the 7 best organized trunks that I found.
Parent-teacher conferences are coming up fast. They are a great time to communicate with your child’s teacher one-on-one but they can also be nerve-racking. Not only do you want to get the most out of it and really understand how your child is doing in school, you probably also want to foster a positive relationship with your child’s teacher.
Having an idea of what you’re going to say and being prepared with some questions can help the conference run smoothly. So, if you’re new to parent-teacher conferences or just need some suggestions, here are some questions that would be appropriate to ask during a conference.
All children are amazing, they are! We all want the best education for our kid and that includes doing our best to get our child into the gifted and talented programs at school. At our school all kids are tested in the spring of 2nd grade. I want to share the secret for how to prepare your child for the gifted & talented test.
We are told that there is nothing to do to prep for the testing other than a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast. Well, what if there is another way to prepare? There is! And I am spilling the secret!
Potty training is tough. There is no way around it. It is just plain old hard most of the time. Once your child masters daytime potty training the next step is night time potty training. Night time potty training usually goes one of two ways: either it is super easy or, it is hard.
Every mom hopes their child won’t be a nose picker. It is inevitable if you have multiple children that one will be obsessed with putting their finger in their nose. It is gross. Even if you have a nose picker you still look at other kids that put their fingers in their nose and get disgusted. Just thinking of all the toys they have played with that your kids are going to touch makes me cringe.
