How We Potty Trained + My Potty Training Must Haves {Video}

One of my goals before Harper turned 3 was to get her potty trained. I knew she was ready because she would tell me to change her diaper.  I put it off as long as I could because I knew she wouldn’t be easy to potty train.  Harper is strong-willed and would put up a fight.  Boy did she!  We started potty training in late May and  I took about 3 weeks to get her trained.  I wanted to share more about our experience and what items helped us on this journey.  Watch the video below.

Dollar Store Kids Dresser Drawer Organization

I’m still in organization mode.  I guess you have to be in forever organized mode if you want to keep your house in order.  I recently announced that I’ll be hitting the road with Dr. Miracle’s this summer at Walmarts around the country.  Make sure you’re following to see where I’ll be next. With that being said, Mister will be on his own and we know how men are about finding kids clothes.  I’ve been slowly purging and organizing the girls’ drawers and closets.  Using tips from my girl Mimi from Unlikely Martha, I got the girls dresser drawers together.

Natural Hair Pillowcases

I’m so excited to share this product that will help all my naturalista minis and mommies.  To this day I still get emails asking how to grow out bald spots on babies and toddlers. Bald spots are usually due to babies rubbing out their hair because they spend a lot of time on their back.  Just like us women, the texture of our hair against cotton is not a good mix.  It can cause bald spots and breakage.  A friend told me before I had Peyton that I needed to make sure she kept silk or satin behind her head.  Where do I find that?  I stole a few of Mister’s silk pocket squares and used that for Peyton when she was a baby.  It wasn’t cute but it helped.  When I had Harper, our friends from MM Blankies sent us one of their fabulous satin blankets that she could lay on and be wrapped in.  I’m happy to share with you MM Blankies newest genius product, designer satin pillowcases.   Continue Reading

Live Better: Tips for Cold & Flu Season

This post is sponsored by CVS. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Welcome to cold and flu season! This is the time of year when moms’ shirts double as tissues. Disgusting but we do what we gotta do right? We do our best to keep our kids protected but being around other kids with runny noses and coughs all day, a cold is bound to make its way into your home. Harper has already been under the weather once this season. Luckily no one else in the house caught the bug (knocks on wood). I’m excited to partner with CVS and their new exclusive brand, Live Better and share my tips to help you through cold and flu season.
