Because it's summertime Hucklebaby was able to spend last week with his grandparents, so we drove to North Central Florida this morning to pick him up (it's been so quiet without him around). "Little H" will go with him in a few years, but right now he gets grandparent week all to himself. A few… Continue reading Disney Springs – TREX Cafe

OK... so I honestly had no idea what these little guys were. I see gnomes and right now I want them. Is a 'gnome phase' a real thing? Discuss... Anyway, I just saw them and thought they would be a great addition to my Christmas gnomes. They are Gnoments - the mix between Gnomes and… Continue reading Coolest little gift…for real though…
So it's that time of year... when everything is busy. Nonstop places to go and things to be done. Holidays are full of excitement, but for little people it's also a time for lots of boredom. Running store to store, random family members' houses and road trips. None of this is necessarily stuff they enjoy.… Continue reading Toddler Busy Box – A Holiday Must Have
Hucklebaby is really into "monsters" at the moment. So anything that looks like a monster (friendly kind) he wants to see...talk about...look at... Another weird reason I love this book...is my grandfather's name was Fred. It's such a simple name, but to me it is filled with an amazing amount of love. Fred is able… Continue reading Hucklebaby Book Club – Fred Friday
State testing...who doesn't love it? After the kiddos sit for hours in silence doing their absolute best on state tests (hopefully)...I like doing something fun and a little out if the ordinary with them. Last week we were gearing up for Easter and as soon as I pulled out Peeps, I had their attention. I… Continue reading After Testing Fun – Peeps and Eggs
We decorated for Easter the day after St. Patty's day and I have learned in the past year or so that if I want to add on to my decorations, they must be Hucklebaby friendly. I am loving anything that uses his fine motor skills at the moment, I'm sure that won't change...and so when… Continue reading Getting Ready For Easter – Plus an Awesome GIVEAWAY!!!
That's it. That's the perfect gift. OK...hear me out. Before I had Hucklebaby I really never knew about the "kid birthday circuit". Yes, it exists and once you are in it...you have to accept it. That means there are endless amounts of birthdays for all of your "new mommy friends" kids, some months...every weekend. Let… Continue reading I Found the Perfect Kid Gift….
Hucklebaby LOVES Duck and Goose. When I say love, I mean he walks around the house say Duck, Duck, Duck...when he wants to read one of Tad Hills' books. Until now he only had the board books 'Feelings' and '1,2,3'. But now we have 'Duck and Goose Go To The Beach'. I know this… Continue reading Summer is OFFICIALLY here!!! Duck and Goose Beach Party
I love anytime we get new books in the room. I don't think that feeling will ever get old, so when I was asked to review - A Bucket of Blessings by Kabir Sehgal and Surishtha Segal (mother and son) - I absolutely said yes. I love being able to share a new book with the… Continue reading Book Review: A Bucket of Blessings
