HOOT for Kids — A Treasure Box Surprise for Max

Max doesn’t appear on the blog much these days. That’s his choice and it’s totally fine with me. This summer he turns 5 and by that age I’m all for my kids participating how and when they want. With this new sense of independence, Max rarely joins in on photos (for the blog or not!) whereas […]

The Prince of Pouches

“Mooooom! Reid just squeezed his pouch and is painting with it! AND NOW IT’S IN HIS HAIR!” This is my life. One little “emergency” after another.  Since it’s not really an option to stop feeding the 16 month old Prince of Pouches I’m striving to teach him to accurately feed himself sooner rather than later.
