The potty training journey has now come to a full end in our home and I feel like an entity has passed on. It has been a long journey for us. When I read about moms that have potty trained their kids in days or weeks I can’t help but sigh a little. I wish I potty trained in weeks! I wish my little girl would have gotten to the end of this journey sooner. But I know that every child is different and what works for one child may not work on another.
We're off on our very first family vacation with our 3 year old daughter in tow. Though this is our first official family vacation, I've traveled countless times with my daughter since she was 4 weeks old, so you can say we're pretty experienced. Traveling with a baby or kids may seem like a daunting and challenging task, it doesn't have to be, if you set yourself up for a win. These tips will make it easier for you on that next family vacation or quick trip! Plus check out our free download.
As a mom to a 3 year old, I can say that we've had tantrums, meltdowns, and full blowouts over somethings as little as not having an apple juice at night or as big as an ear infection, which I had no idea about. I reached out to my sister, 20 year experienced preschool teacher, Dasy Perez, about reasons why young children act up and how we can help. I've also included some resources that can help. Here's what Dasy had to say.
My daughter is now 3.Is she fully potty trained?Well,yes kind of sort of, um I guess the right answer is no.When I hear parents say that they potty trained their child in 2 days, I am baffled. When should you start potty training? What should you do? What are some tools you can use? When should you not potty train? Because this is such a huge partof toddlerhood, I wanted to ask my sister Dasy Perez (18 year experienced preschool teacher)for her advice on the matter.
I have one 3 year old daughter named Victoria (in my belly below). I would love to have another child, right about now but for health reasons, we have decided to only have one child. Many of my friends are now having a second baby and I wanted to address some of their concerns.
Like them, many parents have a second child when their firstborn is 2-4 years old so there isn’t a huge difference in age when the children grow up. I asked my sister, an 18 year experienced preschool teacher, to share her advice and her experiences with you in order to help you when you're ready to have bebé #2. Check out this month’s Dasy’s Corner.
My daughter turned 3 in March. Up until now she has been going to a family daycare, but I decided it was time to move on to preschool. Boy, has this preschool search been an eye opening, “I’m not prepared at all” experience. I wanted to share this with you in hopes that when you are ready to start looking you ARE prepared and not scrambling like I’ve been over the past few weeks. I've even included a Free Downloadable Questionnaire for you to have with you when you are ready to start searching. See what I was surprised to learn!
Spring is almost here and its time to do some cleaning. We tend to accumulate a lot of stuff, especially as parents...everything from toys, clothes, craft or art projects. How can we keep it all organized, stay sane, and not have mom guilt? These are my principles for keeping it together without going nuts and being on the latest episode of "Hoarders."
When your life is turned upside down, how can you deal and manage the stress, especially when you have a young child or children at home? Our lives have changed and learning to navigate this new norm is challenging.
"Mami, are you happy?" Victoria asks. I tell her, "Yes, mama, I'm so happy. These are Happy tears because I have my family, you, a roof over my head, food, clothes, water, my health...I am rich."
