Ultra Easy Children’s Artwork Display on bedroom door! Do it today! @CommandBrand

Our toddler has started creating masterpieces that needed a clutter free home.

I found a super quick, ultra easy, no mess solution!

Her bedroom door is now an art gallery thanks to Command 17505 Photo Clips. I bought mine at a local office supply store, but Amazon has them too.

Just stick them to the door, wait an hour just to be sure they are secure and clip in artwork/pictures/etc. Rotate whenever you want!

She loves seeing her pictures displayed. “Bear, draw, school, pretty, wow!”

Artwork Gallery Door- How To


How do you display your kiddo’s artwork?

p.s. As the pictures rotate I will take a digital picture and then make a collage of pictures from the year to keep in her scrapbook. I’ll keep a few special ones, but the picture collage will be a great way to save the memory without all the clutter!

p.p.s. I wasn’t paid for this post, just another great tip I wanted to share :)

Hospital Bag! What did I forget? @babycenter #maternity #baby #hospital

I packed my hospital bag(s)!  Less than a month until baby boy arrives! {He is almost 4 years old now – time flies!}

What did I forget? Maternity Hospital Bag! #baby


Car seat (already installed)

Box to carry any gifts home when you leave



Insurance Card and Driver’s License + Hospital Registration Paperwork

Cord Blood Banking Kit (if applicable)

Camera (with video or a separate video camera too)


Chargers (small extension cord with extra plugs might be helpful)



Glasses and Contacts with Solution

Music (with iPod or something to play it on)

Smell good lotion or calming scent {we love essential oils} and focal point object

Pillow or at least pillow case (bright color so it doesn’t get washed with the hospital laundry)


Small Suitcase (the room gets crowded quick! Leave it in the car until after delivery)

Toiletries bag with deodorant, lotion, more chapstick, toothbrush and toothpaste, hair brush and hair ties, shampoo, make up/face wipes to stay fresh when you can’t shower, extra contacts and solution

Hand sanitizer – Thieves natural hand purifier is our favorite!

Loose clothing – I packed a couple of button down sleep shirts that are great for nursing and made me feel better than the hospital gown.

Gaucho pants and extra large silk pj pants/shorts were great too.

Flip flops (or slippers if you’d rather)


Nursing bras and big undies (I didn’t ever buy special maternity underwear, I just bought some cheap ones in a few sizes larger) The hospital usually provides fancy mesh undies, you might use them instead.

Nursing cover (I didn’t pack a nursing pillow, but you might want one)

Baby book or scrapbook page for guests to sign!

Thank you notes and a pen or two

Small gift for the nurses (My friend that’s a nurse said food is a nice treat! Just baked goods or a fruit basket and don’t forget to designate one for the night shift and day shift):)

Going home outfit (I wore what I wore to the hospital when I had my daughter- you will still need maternity clothes) A dress or something loose will be especially important if you have a C-Section.



Baby (I put these things in a big Ziploc inside my bag so they wouldn’t get lost)

Going home outfit with socks and a hat. Scratch mittens are a plus. The hospital usually provides diapers and a pacifier. Baby doesn’t need much.


Dad Bag

Clothes, comfy shoes, socks, toiletries, pain relief (the hospital chair/guest bed isn’t too comfy), playing cards or other entertainment, a few favorite snacks


Happy Baby Birth Day!

If all else fails bring the car seat!

p.s. If you have other kiddos make plans for them early and pack their bag now! It will be too crazy the day of delivery to worry about them too!


Here are some great tips from some of my friends… Thanks Ladies!

World Breastfeeding Week – Favorites #WBW2011 #Breastfeeding

In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, check out my post from earlier this year about breastfeeding favorites.


8 months without breastfeeding, about to start again…. I’m really glad I was able to nurse our daughter for a year, but it sure was nice to have a break. September and baby boy will be here soon!

Favorite: Help kiddo sleep through STORMS! Sound Conditioner Sound Screen SleepMate Electro-Mechanical White Noise Machine

We had some wild storms in Texas last night. After bath time the weather started looking pretty ominous, so we got the flashlight, radio, snacks and pillows and piled back into the bathtub. C was so confused why we got in the bathtub with the ducks, no water and our clothes on. Finally the tornado sirens stopped and we were spared any damage. Scary for a bit.

It was getting late and past her bedtime, but still more storms, just no more tornado warnings. I put her in her crib and turned the SleepMate on high. She slept through LOUD thunder, crazy winds and another round of wild storms.

We recently bought the Sound Conditioner Sound Screen SleepMate Electro-Mechanical White Noise Machine for when the new baby arrives since their rooms share a wall. Seems promising that she will continue to sleep well then!

p.s. I also saw it in Sky Mall after we had already ordered it. I always love the random, yet useful things they feature!

p.s.s. When C was a newborn I used to turn on a hair dryer or static on the radio to lull her to sleep. This would have worked so much better. Live and learn.

Update - Fall 2012 – We still LOVE the SleepMate! We have 2 and even take them when we travel. I am thankful for 2 great sleepers!

Stay safe in the storms and sleep soundly!

Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator: Infant/Toddler Favorite (MUST HAVE)

Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator: Infant/Toddler Favorite (MUST HAVE)

C was a bit under the weather last week and once again we used the FABULOUS Nosefrida.

It is a MUST have for all parents. It’s only $15 on Amazon.com (359- five star reviews)

It WORKS so much better than those blue bulbs. Be warned, it’s a little bit gross looking, but totally worth it. http://www.nosefrida.com/

These are just my opinions, I wasn’t paid for my thoughts. I just really love the Nosefrida.
