    Parent Tip: Potty Training

    Don’t schedule playdates or parties during the days you’re potty training. When your child is going through potty training one of the most important things is keeping them focused. Even though potty training can take longer than a few days, you want to provide consistency at the beginning of training. Having friends over or going out can cause a lot of excitement that could make them lose focus. They’ll want to play and lose interest in potty training.

    Parent Tip: Have the Keys

    If you have doors that automatically lock from the outside & you have young children. Be sure to always carry a set of keys with you or hide a key somewhere in your garage. You never know when your kiddos will close the door on you & lock you out. They might not know how to open the door for you.

    Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 Carseat & Strollers

    A couple weeks ago I attended an event at Babies R Us to look at the new SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 Carseat from Graco. You can read that post here. I don’t currently need a new carseat, but I posted about it because I was very excited about the new carseat. I have a SnugRide 35 I used for lil man and am now using it for lil lady. After seeing the carseat I’m still excited about it and wanted to share photos I took during the event. Oh, and by the way Graco and Babies R Us did NOT ask me to post this. I’m not sponsored in anyway by either…

    New Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 Carseat Launching at Babies R Us

    It’s Saturday! I hardly ever post on Saturdays, but I’m excited today about this event I’m attending at Babies R Us. If you’re on Twitter you’ve probably already heard about this event. Graco is hosting their #GracoSafety event in multiple cities today to launch their newest SnugRide carseat and I’m attending the one in Totowa. I currently have the Graco SnugRide 35.

And by the way, I wasn’t asked to post…

    Sponsored: New York Aquarium Ascarium: A Pirate Adventure

    Using my NY Wildlife Ambassador Program family pass this summer I went to the NY Aquarium on a play date with another friend of mine. Our boys loved all the animals especially the sharks. It’s amazing what the kids learn just watching the animals swim around. I wanted to go back to the Aquarium before the end of summer, but unfortunately haven’t been able to. Through our Ambassador program last week I was told there’s a new theme at the New York Aquarium for the Halloween season. It’s called the Ascarium: A Pirate Adventure.  I’m so excited to hear about this program because Lil Man LOVES pirates. So I think we…
