THAT Belly – Flashback Friday

Circa 2010.
Missy was just about 1 year old, this was her first time standing independently. Between that sunkissed skin, chubby legs, messy brown hair and toddler tummy I just can’t get enough…

Brown Easter Eggs – Not So Wordless Wednesday

We dyed The Happy Egg Co brown eggs this year. They contacted me and offered some dye kits and coupons for a few dozen Happy Egg Co eggs and I happily obliged. Although I didn’t use the coupons to purchase eggs (I paid out of pocket), all opinions are my own anyway.

Dying brown eggs creates really cool rich jewel toned eggs. I was super impressed. The only difference is the eggs need to sit in the dye for a long time.

The Pigeon Needs a Bath! {Giveaway} #PigeonNeedsaBath

Let me start off by saying – how cute is my kid right here?
The Pigeon needs a bath! Giveaway
I grew up with a strong love of books, we read as a family every day well into my teen years. My favorite kinds of books as a child were books with large, bright pictures and a funny story. Now as a mother of 4, I cherish reading quality time with my kids and I appreciate books that tell not only an interesting story, but one with a lesson or moral as well. If we can enjoy some quality time together, have fun and learn something at the same time – everyone wins.

The Pigeon Needs a Bath! Is the 8th and newest book in Mo Willem’s Caldecott winning picture book series. Mo Willems is a #1 New York Times best-selling author and illustrator and has been awarded a Caldecott Honor on 3 occasions – for Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. Mo began his career as a writer and animator on Sesame Street. We received a copy of The Pigeon Needs a Bath! for review purposes, all opinions are my own.

The Pigeon Needs a Bath!

The Pigeon Needs a Bath! is an adorable tale about a very dirty, stinky bird that refuses to take a bath. After some much needed persuasion he does in deed hop in and finds himself enjoying it. Although my kids look forward to bath time every evening (and they cry if they don’t get to take a bath) I can see this book being helpful to parents of kids that are stubborn in the bath taking department. It is an easy, fun read with cute pictures.

The Pigeon Needs a Bath! is a 9×9 hardcover book perfect for the 3-5 years old age set. It retails for $16.99 and is available at your favorite bookstore starting on April 1st 2014.

I didn’t even set these pictures of my youngest son up, he just happened to grab our copy of The Pigeon Needs a Bath! and plopped himself on his bed. I simply grabbed my camera and let him ham it up for fun. I mean, you die of all that cute too right? He was enjoying looking at the pictures of the dirty pigeon:)

Pink – Not So Wordless Wednesday

This pretty girl in pink is officially enrolled in Preschool.

register for preschool

My husband registered her for preschool on Tuesday. I was unable to be there because I’m still a sloppy mess and sleeping most of the day. I am sad that she is growing up so quickly. She is a joy to be around and I will miss her when she goes to school.
