Blissful Booty giveaway from The Clothspring!

The Clothspring has an amazing Blissful Booty package giveaway right now. One lucky entrant will win a Blissful Booty Ultra & 1 oz bottle of wipe concentrate.

I am lucky enough to own a Blissful booty diaper and can attest to it's awesomeness. It is so soft, has generous sizing, and we have never had a leak using it. And the wipe solution is amazing! I have always used plain water with my wipes until I got a sample of their solution to try. It smells SO good! And it left his bum clean.

Check out the giveaway HERE. And check out Blissful Booty's products HERE.

Tot School

I love the idea of homeschool. So when I found the blog 1+1+1=1 this week I was thrilled! I felt such a strong connection to the idea of "Tot School" and I was so excited that I started it right away. Now Charlie just turned 1 last week, so we won't be pulling out the text books anytime soon, but what we are doing is learning through play.

I try and follow Charlie's lead on things, what he wants to play with or where he wants to explore in the house. If we start an activity and he isn't into it then we move on, no big deal. So I thought I would document some of the things we are doing in "Tot School".

Charlie's 1st time painting- It was messy but he loved it.


He even painted the patio. :)


And now I have this colorful masterpiece to hang on my fridge!


We also played with items from the texture box. I simply put different toys and household item with different textures in a box and I bring it out throughout the day. I'm going to try and rotate items to keep the box exciting.

The texture box-


Charlie took time for a imaginary phone call. :)


Playing with wooden blocks. He practiced stacking and clapped for himself every time he added a block.


Going for a third...


And then he built this...


Nah I'm just kidding! But he did knock it down. ;)

Happy Mother's Day!

Yesterday I celebrated my 2nd Mother's Day. Last year Charlie was 5 days old and it was our first full day home from the hospital. And this year I had a sick 1 year old but it was still an amazing day. I think Mother's Day will always be extra special to me because of everything we went through trying to get pregnant. I feel so blessed to even be a Mom and I don't take it for granted.

I wanted to take a moment and say that I hope that all the women going through infertility yesterday also had a wonderful Mother's day. It takes a strong woman to walk down that road and you are an amazing Mother even before your child is conceived because you have been fighting for them for years. I pray that next year the women in my life who are going through this will have a very different experience. You all are never far from my heart or my prayers.
