Sorry We Missed Posting Brenda’s Easter

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. It is always so cheerful and sunny. It has been bothering me that I never posted pictures of  Brenda’s Easter. Brenda really seemed to have fun all that week.

She had a great time at school the week of Easter. Here she is after the school’s Easter egg hunt.

Tantrum Free Traveling

Monday, June 15th, 2009

No one wants to deal with children’s tantrums while traveling. If you plan a little, then you can maintain a stress-free family vacation. The main thing is your child has no real concept of time. What may seem like a short trip to you can be intolerable to your child.

Plan your trip so your child’s routine stays as normal as possible. Travel when your child  usually sleeps. This way they are rested and better prepared to enjoy the attractions of your destination.

Make sure to have plenty of activities for when your child is awake. Keep switching out age appropriate toys, books, puzzles and art supplies. Plan stops at play grounds and bring outdoor toys so your kids can stretch their legs and release some energy.

Keep your child comfortable. Bring their favorite things, like pillows, blankets, stuffed animals. Make sure you have plenty of snacks and drinks too.

Plan your trip with your child’s needs in mind and you will have a nice and peaceful vacation.

Brenda’s Friends spelled in Chef Boyardee ABC’s & 123’s in Sauce

Brenda and I had more fun with food. This time we had number’s and letter’s to play with. I couldn’t find a number four so I made one from an “F” and a bite of something else. I used a letter “P”  upsidedown to make letter “D”’s. This was really tasty to make. We used Chef Boyardee ABC’s and 123’s.
