“Kick Back’s” First Easter Festivities

Toddler Bunny Craft

Easter was just last week. I wanted to share all the Easter fun we had! โ€ 

“Kick Back’s” daycare had a party on Thursday. We were asked to bring in fruit snacks, chips and things of that nature. Boy! he really enjoyed himself. He even made (with some assistance) a little goodie bag with a bunny on the front. ( pic above)

How to make:

  1. -Cut out a bunny face
  2. -Line the bunny with a little Elmer’s School Glue
  3. -Get your Toddler to place the mini marshmallows around the bunny’s face
  4. -Get your toddler to pickย their favorite color of cotton nose….and there you have it! it’s a bunny!

These are all photos ofย “Kick Back” enjoying his goodies. In his bag wasย cookies, puffs, fruit snacks, fruit cup, juice and even a cupcake. But of course, mommy ate that ๐Ÿ™‚

Easter Fun Easter Goodies

I’m pretty excited about this table. I’ve been searching for one for a while. I wanted him to have a little table so he could write, draw, color and even have a place to sit down and eat a snack. It’s not always fun sitting the highchair or cleaning up after him when he walks around. So I found the cutest little toddler table at a local Big Lots for a really good price. It was easy to assemble and what I like most was that he didn’t have the four chairs, becauseย its’ a picnic table. ย I don’t like a lot of furniture. Toddlers already come with a lot of toys. lol

This table was purchased at Big Lots for $19 bucks!

 

Hollys Cake Bar

I want to give my friend a huge shout out.ย Holly’s Cake Barย created, made and designed this lovely cake! YES, the whole thing is a cake. How cool is this! Please take a look at some of her work and order for your next upcoming event.

Saturday Fun!

“Kick Back’s” first Easter Egg Hunt was a blast! It was at our community center in our neighborhood. They host it every year. Last year he was too small toย enjoy. But this year he was so excited. He walked right up to the Easter bunny! Until her realized it moved and then he freaked out lol. If you notice in the picture he’s looking like “dad, so this thing is real?!?”

Refusing to nap!!!

What to do when your toddler doesn’t want to nap!?!?!?! I’m literally about to pull my hair out! I let “KickBack” go to work with me today because we’ve had a lot of bad weather and I didn’t want to send him to daycare. (Thinking this would be a great idea, NOT!) He woke up at 7 a.m., we started our day. He played for hoooooours at work, running around with my coworker (literally). He slept for 3 minutes in the car; came in the house and he’s been up on one thousand every since! Just talking and talking, jumping and jumping, playing and playing. Like did someone give him chocolate or something! So I fed him, I changed him, I gave him milk, then I put him in a playpen upstairs with the TV (bc he jumps out his crib). Needless to say that was an hour ago and he’s still screaming and crying because he refuses TO NAP! Mommies please help me! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
**However, a good friend sent me this site. It maybe helpful. I still need advice from you guys though! Baby Sleep Site

Dosage Chart

Because it’s that time of the year, all of our little babies are getting sick. I know it can be frustrating having to google or research how much medication to give your baby or toddler. So hopefully, this will be your “go to” chart. โ™ฅ Tylenol Dosage Chart Tylenol dosage chart Motrin Dosage Chart Motrin Dosage Chart Also refer to Motherhood–>Baby–>ย 0-12 Monthsย for more information on Dosage Charts.

Surviving Teething

Surviving Teething can be very STRESSFUL…

You never want to see your baby in pain. So I’ve created a little survival kit that seems to work for me. Remember every baby is different, but this kit has a few options that should solve the problem.

Teething Care Kit

  1. Teething Tablets was one of the first things I tried using when “KickBack” was only a few months old. It’s an all natural tablet that dissolves in the mouth. I like this product because it is inexpensive, he could take as many as needed, and he was able to sleep because he wasn’t in pain. These tablets can be found on the medicine aisle or the baby sectionย in Walmart or Target.ย  I personally wanted to stay away from orajel when he was an infant.ย  It just seemed a bit much for a new baby.ย My suggestion is to only use the teething tabletsย for 0-9 month babies. As he started to approach a year old, we had to upgrade to something a little more effective.
  2. Sophie TeethingSophie the Giraffe Teether. At first I couldn’t believe my mom had paid $25 dollars (I think) for the tall one and about $15 for the small. I was thinking this thing should work a miracle. I must say at first it didn’t. “KickBack” could of cared less about this thing. But as months went on, I had to revisit some gadgets to see if they would help. (So don’t give up on certain items just yet) He started to really enjoyย Miss Sophie and still uses her at 15 months.ย Plus I figured, if he could chew on the bottom of his shoe (which was made of rubber that wasn’t all natural); then, he for sure could chew on Sophie.ย :/ย The cool thing about thisย is it has different textures all over the giraffe to help sootheย your baby’s gumsย andย it’s made with all natural rubber and food paint. The more expensive one makes a sound when squeezed and helps your baby understand the link between cause and effect. Note to self, you may have to help your baby get the hang of how to use this at first. Sophie has many functions that the baby will want to enjoy.
