I recently shared some tips for the planning stage of your Walt Disney World vacation, and today I wanted to share some tips on making sure you get the most out of your day at the parks. When it comes to doing Disney World with a toddler/preschooler, it’s all about maximizing your time and hitting the parks EARLY (i.e. right when the parks open). Here are some key things we have learned to get the most out of our park days. I am going to be speaking primarily about Magic Kingdom in this post, as this park is typically the biggest hit with the toddler/preschooler crowd.
Set your alarm and plan to arrive early. This is key. We all know that preschoolers are early risers, [...]
We are HUGE Disney fans in our house! I grew up 20 minutes away from Disneyland, so needless to say, Disney was a big part of my childhood. So many of my memories as a little girl involve Disney, and some of my absolute favorite photos of myself were taken at Disneyland. Now that I have children of my own, I want them to experience Disney for themselves, and I hope they will grow to love it just as much as their mama!
We took our oldest, Noah, to Disney World for the first time last summer right before he turned 3. We visited in late August, which made it a great time to visit with relatively low crowds. Most people would say to avoid traveling to Disney World in [...]
As a mom to a toddler and a preschooler, I am always on the lookout for new products that can help make our lives just a little bit easier. In particular, mealtime is an area where I am always searching for some extra help with.
Battling with my independent toddler over spoon feeding her yogurt every morning had become an everyday occurrence. Due to London’s independent nature, she started refusing being spoon-fed by mommy several months ago. So, I have let her spoon feed herself from a younger age than I did with her older brother. Only problem is – half way through she gets frustrated with the spoon and it usually results in her throwing her yogurt container off the side of [...]
Where are all my mamas of picky little eaters?! I, for one, am raising my hand way up in the air! My oldest, Noah (3.5 yrs old), is as picky as they come. Would you believe me if I said he’s never eaten an actual blueberry before?! Or that he’s never eaten more than about 3 vegetables his entire life?! If it can be found in the produce section of the grocery store, chances are he doesn’t eat it. I should probably clarify a bit because he has eaten plenty of fruit + veggie baby food back in the day. Since becoming a preschooler, he does drink the occasional smoothie (with hidden veggies), and will also snack on a variety of toddler/big kid fruit pouches. But, when it comes to fruit + [...]
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? What goes in your body is just as important as what goes on your body. As someone who pays close attention to what skincare products I put on my own body, it’s no surprise that I am even more cautious about what I put on my children.
Shortly after becoming pregnant with my first born, I began to research baby skincare products. When I started researching what was actually in some of the popular baby skincare options on the market, I was quite startled. You want me to put WHAT on my newborn baby’s skin?! Formaldehyde? Parabens? Phthalates? I don’t think so!
Since becoming a mom, I have turned into an [...]
