Baby Bodyguards- Keeping Kids Safe at Home

by Jennie November 12, 2015

baby bodyguards

I was super excited when Baby Bodyguards contacted me and asked to work together. Although this is my third baby, I have felt more unsafe this time around than with the other two. My issue is that my boys are older now and are doing things that Cody wasn’t doing when I had Grayson as […]

Hospital Bag

The countdown is ON! I am officially 12 days away from my “due date”!!! Woohoo, in the home stretch. I must say that this time around, I feel like I have been pregnant FOREVER! I thought having two busy boys would make things go by quick, but that just hasn’t been the case. I have everything washed […]

This is my first child in Kindergarten so it was an adjustment to say the least. Gone are the days we can all go out for the day at the Zoo or an outing without having to be anywhere. Thankfully, our bus pickup ended up being afternoon Kindy for us… I am happy to put […]

back to school ideas

I feel like everyone else is just getting started with gearing up for heading back to school, but we started last week so I thought I would share some tips and tricks I learned while prepping my Code Man for Kindergarten!

Whisper Diaper Pail

All of us have been there…. we walk into our house and get knocked over by the smell of a dirty diaper that we left in the garbage! YUCK! I think we have all tried the diaper pails that claim to contain the smell, but then you open up that lid and are hit with […]

Building Confidence at The Little Gym Mason

by Jennie January 22, 2014

I have been a huge supporter of The Little Gym Mason since Cody started taking classes there when he was 2! Cody was a VERY shy toddler and just wasn’t comfortable in new situations. One of the HUGE factors that played into building his confidence was The Little Gym. If you have a more introverted […]


Crib Climber Solution

how to keep your kids from climbing out

OMG! That is ALL I have to say about this ingenious creation! I was definitely one of the those moms that waited as LONG as I could to change Cody over from a crib to a big boy bed. In my opinion, why let them out of their cage crib until you have to?! lol!! […]


Baby to Big Boy: The Little Gym

by Jennie May 23, 2012

The Little Gym

I have been talking over the last few weeks about Cody’s transformation from baby to big boy. The last post was about potty training and our latest potty progress is that he can stand at the big potty to pee so bye- bye little potty!! He has also been practicing wiping himself since some mamas at TLG told me […]

As I described in my last transforming from baby to big boy post, Cody was not always an easy baby! Those first two years, he was very needy. He clung to my leg and did not want me out of his sight! Things started to change when I found out I was pregnant. I think […]

Transforming from baby to big boy: Crying, Crying and more Crying

by Jennie May 1, 2012

We tried so hard for Cody and once he was finally here, all we could imagine was holding our little precious bundle in our arms. Well, it didn’t go exactly as we had envisioned! You couldn’t just hold Cody in the beginning. You had to bounce him and bounce him and bounce him some more. […]


Transforming from Baby to Big Boy

by Jennie April 27, 2012

I wanted to take some time over the next few weeks to write some posts about my first born, aka big brother! The transformation that he (and all kids) make over the first three years of life is just phenomenal. I think that with the hustle and bustle of life and with the day in […]
