Cloth Diapers with 2 kids, again…

One of the reason JD and I decided to have kids close together was to never get out of the diapering phase. Little did we know, Hazel and Jennifer had different plans. Hazel fully potty trained by 2.5 and Jenni was done before she was 19 months - disclaimer, we had nothing to do with... Continue Reading →

Eat outside!

One of my favourite things about this time of year is everything can be done outside. Like, eating! And that means less clean up inside. Whether a warm day like today or a rainy day, we have options to eat outside if we want! The great big carport makes that possible. So the girls get... Continue Reading →

Independence for all

We try to promote the kids being as independent as possible. They have "responsibilities" like putting away their shoes, getting themselves dresses, little things that show us, and more importantly, them, what they can do. In reality a lot of it stems from there being so many of them! If I had to dress everyone,... Continue Reading →

I went through their clothing in between as well, but there is constantly so much! Every time I... Continue Reading →

Nesting the fourth time

It's starting to like like nesting for this baby is going to be the most house-wide organizational! With the other three it was primarily getting the nursery ready, and then sometime, around 36 weeks, doing a really good clean, and then just keeping the house at that level of clean (please note, with 3 children...

But it’s hard!

I've been working with Martin to get him to start using utensils. We follow baby-led feeding with the kiddos so they don't get purees just food they can pick up and feed them-self as soon as they start. Yes, it makes a big mess (Django loves it). Yes, very quickly baby eats exactly what we're... Continue Reading →
