Arts and Crafts for Toddlers: Painting with Jello

by Shannon February 26, 2012

This is the coolest arts project ever and Trinity loves it! Not only does she get to paint, but when it’s dry, the painting is textured and she loves to feel it. We’re not ones to eat Jello, but I’ve become an avid shopper of it just so Trinity can paint with it. Here’s what […]

Moving with a baby…how to maintain balance

by Shannon February 14, 2012

In December, my husband and I decided that we were going to move to the East Coast for a year to catch up with our families and our ailing grandparents. We really want to ensure that Trinity gets to spend quality time with both my grandmother and John’s grandparents (who haven’t met her yet), as […]

by Shannon February 7, 2012

I just completed a flight from Tucson to Salisbury, MD with Trinity and I can definitely give you a few suggestions for traveling with a Toddler. Because I was traveling by myself, I made the decision to purchase Trinity her own seat. I am soooooo glad I did. There was absolutely no way I would […]

Mom stopped from breastfeeding by female security guards

by Shannon December 19, 2011

It’s shocking enough that in this day and age, a woman would be asked to stop breastfeeding her child. First of all, for all the ignorant idiots out there, it’s exactly what our breasts were made to do. Any breastfeeding mom will tell you that when your baby wants to eat, your baby wants to […]

Breastfeeding: It’s Our Right

by Shannon December 19, 2011

Take a minute to familiarize yourself with the Breastfeeding Promotion Act of 2011. Federal law currently requires employers to provide reasonable break time and a private, non-bathroom place for nursing mothers to express breast milk, for one year after the child’s birth. Yet this provision only applies to “nonexempt employees,” and it does not protect […]

Arsenic found in fruit juice

by Shannon December 12, 2011

I’ve avoided giving Trinity juice for a number of reasons. First, John and I don’t drink it so it’s not a normal staple in our home. Second, it’s full of empty calories and sugar with no real benefit. Trinity loves drinking water which is better for her and juice is also known to be cavity […]

by Shannon December 7, 2011

OMG! Has it really been almost 2 months since I’ve blogged???? I have so much to write about but it seems I’ve had so little time. So much to update everyone on and some really cool new things I’ve learned as a WAHM and SAHM. First off…I thought that Trinity developed so much during her […]
