A Mom’s Precious Memories

So, my babies are still little. The oldest is 26 months and the youngest is 7 months (time is moving fast). The oldest knows all of his alphabets (upper and lowercase) by sight (he still does not know the Alphabet song but he can call out all the letters). My youngest is crawling (hands and knees) and pulling up on everything. I know that she will be walking soon. I try to capture it all with video and photos and I try to record it all down. Time is just flying by and some days I wish it would slow down (just a bit). I came across a video that I recorded around the time that my oldest started walking.

I hope that you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Weekends are for Family Fun

Weekends are the best because we get to do things as a family. I can breathe a little easier when going out with 2 kids because for some reason they act differently with Daddy. The tantrums and fits that they have sometimes out in public with me, don’t happen when out with Daddy. I think he thinks I exaggerate the tantrums. Whatever! All I know is that we have fun on the weekends as a family.

Here are some cool things happening in NY this weekend:
– Learn about Frogs
– Recycle at Greenmarket
– Exercise to tales of great women
– Glow in the dark sculptures
– Rock out to the Silly Dilly Band
– Mardi Gras Art Parade at the Children’s Museum

Have a wonderful weekend!

Let’s Have An Ice Cream Party – Recipe by Tartelette

I love ice cream sandwiches. I thought that ice cream on Friday would be a great treat. I decided to find a gluten-free recipe because I wanted a lot of people to enjoy this indulgence. Shortly after my son turned 1, he was diagnosed with Celiac disease (intolerance to gluten (wheat). As a family, we decided to adjust our diets to match his (which was a bit challenging because fast food was out). It was not until recently (after going to another GI specialist in NY), that his diagnosis was reversed. So even though he has been ruled out for the disease, we still enjoy gluten-free treats from time to time. We are going to try to recipe over the weekend. I will let you know how they turn out. I hope that you are able to have an ice party today!

Here is the ice cream sandwich recipe found on Tartelette.

Baby Clothing Online Window Shopping

With two kids, the easiest way to go shopping is online. I can sit at the computer when they are asleep and take my time finding cute clothes. I don’t have to worry about people looking at me with the ‘I feel sorry for you face’ because one or both of the children are crying. Even when they are not crying, I am anxious the whole time anticipating an unhappy child. So, online shopping is for me stress-free and easy. Here are a few cute kid finds.
