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!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
