When you’re a parent to multiples especially when they are close in age dividing your time and attention equally for all the children is hard! Lately we have been finding that my son (who is the only boy and the middle child) needs just that little extra bit of attention or else he starts trying to get it the wrong way so my husband and I have been trying to get creative in ways to give him that one on one attention. My oldest gets a lot of attention naturally and she also is involved in a lot of extra circular actives that appear to be “special treatment” and he just hasn’t found “his thing” yet. Naturally our youngest being the baby and definitely being a “mommy’s girl” she doesn’t lack in getting attention so how to give our little man the attention and one on one time became the question?

 

 

 

Well thankfully Little Tikes to the rescue – they sent us these super fun Waffle Blocks to try out and it was the perfect opportunity for my husband to spend some one on one time with our little man. He was so excited to get his own package in the mail that he got to open and when he saw what it was he was dying to get the box opened and start building. Of course after looking at the book of all the different plans for what you can build and than looking at all the pieces he quickly handed daddy the plan book and pointed to the plans he wanted daddy to help build. They had so much fun building their castle and the blocks are being used daily and have provided hours of quiet entertainment for our family which is a win in this moms book! They are simple to use and click together even my youngest can participate and the book of plans is super simple and easy for even the kids to follow the directions. We have always loved Little Tikes products our house is full of them and these Waffle Blocks are another win in our books! and for all you mamas thinking what a mess to store all the pieces – well they thought of that too and have included a large mesh bag with zipper that fits all the pieces for easy clean up and making it easy for the kids to access themselves when they want to play with it!

 

 

Thanks to Little Tikes for the products but as always the opinion and review is my own!

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
