A Family Valentine’s At Home

Like all holidays in my life I never know if my husband will be around or not. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate that romantic love but mine may be on the road but I do have a lot of love for my boys and I am always with them so here is to celebrating Valentine’s at home with your little ones. Now that Myles is getting older it is fun to teach him about holidays and what they mean.

Crafts are something I love to do and I want my children to do them as well. I don’t have time to do crafts like I used to and now I am encouraging Myles to paint and color and to be creative. A couple years ago I made an adorable “LOVE” sign and a photo of Myles makes the “o”. I need to make something with a photo of Noah this year and I’m not sure what! I looked on pinterest and didn’t find any ideas for Valentine’s art so I’m going ot have to get creative but I did this site with a few great crafts my Myles, I think I’ll have him try the pencil eraser one!

 I also love baking and Myles loves to help me do that. He is always in charge of mixing the batter. When I bake with the boys I make sure to make something somewhat healthy so we can enjoy eating it together. I saw this recipe for yogurt hearts and now I want to try and mix things up and try my own recipe. Of course my version is getting closer and closer to being very unhealthy so maybe I’ll have to limit Myles to just one heart. Back to my recipe, I’m thinking of mixing vanilla greek yogurt and a little bit of powder sugar and adding a blended strawberry or two for color, after mixing that completely I’ll swirl in a little bit of melted white chocolate, pour into heart icecube molds and pop in the freezer. This sounds so good to me and I have no idea if it will work… I think I’ll be heading to Target to buy some ingredients and practice this recipe. Any bakers out there have any tips??

How sweet is Myles sharing his strawberries with me?champagne please sweatshirtAfter a romantic holiday with my kiddos I may just have to have a glass of champagne or maybe just sparking apple juice. Whatever it is I choose to drink I’ll put it in a champagne flute! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

The Breakdown:
I am not that type of person who gets done up at home with her children. My children are too messy and I get food or spit up on me multiple times a day. Even though it is Valentine’s Day I am keeping it simple at home with the boys. I will have to save a nicer outfit for a postponed V-day date with my husband.

Clean Floors For My Crawling Baby

memphis floor cleaningWomen go into extreme nesting mode while they are pregnant. Everything needs a home, the nursery should be perfect and nothing out of place. That wasn’t the case for me. Of course I would love for everything to be in its place but with living between 2 states and a toddler it just wasn’t going to happen for me. I have a nesting mode part 2 which is when my babies become mobile. Having clean floors is an obsession when my babies start to crawl. We wear our shoes throughout the house, we have a dog that opens the door on his own from when he is outside and the floors just get dirty, even when they are mopped once a week. I was thrilled to be able to work with America’s Best Carpet & Tile to get area rugs and tile cleaned.

We stop and drop to play anywhere in the house and our tiled hall is filled with natural light and Noah and I often chase Myles up and down this area and end up on the floor. We have a small nook that has a rug and some baby toys that the kids end up on but now that Noah is a pro crawler he is off that rug in a second and on to the tile floor. Having clean floors is so important with little ones, Noah puts everything in his mouth, including his fingers so to know the floors are clean gives me a small piece of mind.

Like I mentioned before, the toddler, the baby and the dog means sticky hands, spit up and mud are all common yucky things that end up on our floors. Every once in a while to get our floors and rugs professionally cleaned is a must. Ever since America’s Best Carpet & Tile came to my house I have been obsessed with looking at the floors. Our tile is so crisp and clean and there is not a spec on our area rugs. I am loving our clean floors and my babies are too!
