How to Make Yogurt Popsicles

August 14, 2017

Today Savy and I are sharing one of our favorite summer treats! We started making these last year after Jane shared them on I Heart Naptime! I love these yogurt popsicles because they’re an easy + healthy snack and the kids love them because they’re delish + they get to help me out in the kitchen. Win | Win. If you’re making these with your babes, which you totally should, I just have one quick tip: embrace the mess! Let them get their hands into the granola, spoon out the yogurt, pour the milk. It’ll take two minutes to clean up afterwards and they’ll literally think you’re the coolest mom on the block.

Our Naptime Routine

June 30, 2017

Having four little ones home this summer has been quite the experience. It’s been crazy and exciting and challenging and the noise level and dirty floors have been at an all time high! But so has the laughter and sibling camaraderie so I’m okay with it 😉. While I love spending time with my kids I’m full on exhausted by the time lunch rolls around. I tell every mom who asks how I’m surviving that it’s because we stick to our routine at all costs. We explore in the mornings, eat lunch and then it’s nap time. If you’re a mom you know that nap time is the most sacred time of the day! It’s the time you get to decompress from the chaos, refuel that patience level that was teetering on empty, and it’s also when I like to give my big kids some much needed one-on-one time.

I wanted to share our nap time routine with you guys and a few things that have helped my babies not only sleep well, but sleep longer. Click on through to read more!

Happy Birthday Babies!

June 9, 2017

Happy Birthday boys! I’m honestly in denial they’re two…

So let’s get real for a second. These babies have consumed my entire life the past couple years. It’s been the craziest of rides and they’ve brought more joy and stress than I can even put into words! I definitely struggle at times with feeling like we’re being held back… we just can’t be adventurers with two two year olds, ya know?! I know that finding joy in the simple things is enough right now. They make me laugh my head off every single day with their shenanigans. They make me carry them up the stairs for nap time, they scream for hand hugs while we’re driving in the car. They make me stay on a schedule because I’m literally afraid of what will happen if they’re not down for their naps on time! It’s definitely been a sacrifice for everyone because honestly, how do you go to the pool with two two year olds? Or to the park? Which one do you save when they dart in different directions?
