Finding a preschool

This wasn’t a topic that I originally planned on blogging about, but I’ve gotten quite a few requests for a post about finding a preschool. Livi started preschool last fall in Tucson -if you’re in Tucson and need recommendations, shoot me an email!- as a way to get some extra help two mornings each week […]

“I need to water my feet so they will grow.”   “I made you a cupcake.” “What flavor is it?” “BANILLA. WIth strawberry, peanut butter, banana and cinnamon.”   “Livi, what are you thankful for today?” “Thankful for da-da, for mama, for Bella and for Minnie Mouse House. I want to go to Minnie Mouse […]

A couple Livi-isms, a short vid, and fave bilingual children’s books


  “Mama, may I have this dance?” “I don’t like Ursula. She’s not my favorite.” (At random, multiple times throughout the day) “Can I have coffee? I’m two.” (I told her she couldn’t have coffee until she’s 21) A short video of her singing:   “I want to read Margarita.” Livi is used to hearing […]

My philosophy has been, “If it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it” regarding her […]

Me: “It’s coffee time for mama” Liv: “It’s waffle time for ME”   While grabbing all of her baby dolls out of her crib, “I’ve got my hands full!”   After Tom gave her a bath, she was bundled up on the bed in a towel while he got her jammies together. Me: “Oh!! Don’t […]

When the picky comes out

I had a feeling it would happen eventually, which is why I chose to be thankful for each day Liv would eat ANYTHING under the sun. I’ve found that a lot of things (just like with an adult) can affect her appetite, especially if she’s been sick or is teething. Now that she’s much better […]

$14, 40 minutes, 4 make-ahead toddler snacks

Even though the days of pouches, purees and bite-sized offerings of our food -along with the constant worry of potential allergies and or/choking- we’re 100% in the toddler food stage. This means that Liv can eat pretty much anything I eat (ok, so I’m still afraid to give her shellfish) and it’s so much fun […]
