The Pretty Bee
Kelly at "The Pretty Bee" blogs all about food, family and cooking around her sons' food sensitivities. She gave readers a recipe for four-ingredient chocolate covered coconut bars just in time for back-to-school season. Not only are they a simple sweet treat, they're also a great substitute for a candy bar in kids' lunch boxes.
Life Alaskan Style
Whitney of "Life Alaskan Style" has many posts that show the natural beauty of her state—which, if you hadn't guessed, is Alaska. With her two little ones tucked into a wagon, she was able to spend an afternoon with them picking shelled peas at a local farm. Food, nature and a relaxing couple of hours enjoying both of them—sounds like a great day to us!
Has your child ever tried to put you in timeout? Rachel recently wrote on her blog "Maybe Matilda" about her 4-year-old son and his love of telling her to "be weally quiet in there and don't you dawe come out until I tell you to!" Her response is something we think everyone could use to bring a little less stress to their day: "Don't fight the toddler. Just take. the. time. out." Many of Rachel's readers have already commented with similar tales. What have you gotten "in trouble" for with your little one?
