The top toys my kids actually play with long after they’re opened

The Christmas toy flyers have arrived in the mail and the request for Christmas lists have come in from family so there has been a lot of talk about wish lists around my house.
The struggle is to figure out what toys will actually be played with.
Here’s my list of top toys my kids actually play with for those of you looking for a good gift for ages 0-4:

My Little Pony theme party

Last week my daughter turned 4 and we hosted her friends (and ours) with a My Little Pony party at our home.
We had so much fun putting together the games and activities.
Here are all the details

How to make cloth diapering easy (and stick with it)

We used cloth diapers eagerly when big G was born, but had given up before she was three-months-old.

When baby #2 came along I decided I wanted to try cloth again. This time I would do it differently.

I’ve learned a lot and we are happily still using cloth almost 10 months in.

Litterless lunch snack ideas: a work in progress

One thing that has me on edge is the litterless lunch idea. I don’t see the point in unwrapping a snack and putting it in a container. I feel like that defeats the purpose so I want to come up with snacks I can make from scratch instead (remember, we are only a week in to school).

I figured I could use this space to keep it all together.
