HOW TO PREP FOR LEAVING YOUR TODDLER.

APRIL 14, 2015 BY HEATHER ANDERS

Glancing at the above sheet makes you feel at least a little bad for my in-laws, doesn't it? Dealing with me for a daughter-in-law and my neurosis with organization probably puts them right into sainthood…seriously. But if you’re a type A mom like me, having that little extra organization when you’re going to be away from your little one is a huge comfort.

 

If you noticed that I’ve been a little MIA on here for the last month (oh my gosh it’s been over a month! Eek, I’m sorry…unacceptable), it’s because life just got extra hectic. Husby and I are tying up the final loose ends before building our new house, and I’m in prime travel season for work right now. But the latter of the two reasons is what prompted me to write this post to share some of my timesaving tips on prepping for your toddler when you’re going to be away.

 

I have this annoying trait where I feel so.bad inconveniencing people. Obviously going out of town for five nights means someone is going to be inconvenienced (especially with Husby joining me on this specific trip), so I never want to make it seem like I expect the world out of anyone.

WHY MY HUSBAND IS A BETTER DAD THAN I AM A MOM.

MARCH 3, 2015 BY HEATHER ANDERS

He doesn’t worry whether the top of her sippy cup matches the bottom, just that she has milk in her glass.

 

He doesn’t worry about if the onesie he put on under her outfit for the day matches the rest, just that she has one on to keep her bare stomach from feeling the cold winter air.

 

He doesn’t worry about if her meal consists of a little of each food group in it, just that she’s fed.

 

He doesn’t notice the last of the yogurt is gone, just that she had some for lunch that day.

 

He doesn’t notice her blanket is dirty, just that she has it to soothe her for naps and bedtime.

 

He doesn’t worry about the dishes in the sink or the unwashed sippy cup, just that he’s engaged in playtime with her.....  [Continue reading...]

C9 BY CHAMPION; REVIEW.

FEBRUARY 23, 2015 BY HEATHER ANDERS

This post is in affiliation with C9 by Champion sold at Target. All opinions are my own.

 

First things first, it's COLD here right now. I'm talking regular temps in the negatives with wind chill advisories on top of that. I've grown up in the Midwest and while I prefer the heat, I can handle the cold. Except for this. This is just ridiculous.

 

So when I was offered the opportunity to review the C9 by Champion winter, outdoor running line, I was a liiiiiiiittle apprehensive about it. And I'm not going to lie that I was incredibly hopeful it would warm up a bit before actually testing the line. But it didn't, so it was literally so.cold when we took these pictures (Husby said I should have screenshot the temp on my weather app!).

 

The thing that surprised me was that these workout pieces really are warm. The "feels like" temp according to my weather app was negative 17 degrees...  [Continue reading...]

12 hours a valentine.

FEBRUARY 17, 2015 BY HEATHER ANDERS

It's not often we get a full day where all three of us get to spend time together. Between my travel schedule and Husby's recording studio, our time with all three of us together for any extended time period, much less a full day, is almost nonexistent. So it was a true Valentine's treat to have this day devoted to the three of us together.

 

And it was such a perfect day. 

 

It's amazing to see that there really is a difference in Adelyn's demeanor when we're both present all.day. She voluntarily stopped to give each of us hugs and kisses so many times throughout the day that we realized we need to really prioritize planning in full family days a little more often.
