Eating Out with Toddlers

Tips for Eating out with Toddlers
I’m trying to post more about the things people are asking about, and I get so many questions about how I’m able to eat out so often with toddlers! I’m cracking up because I didn’t really think this was something I needed to post about, but I looked for other posts on the subject and HATED some of the advice. I read things like “Don’t worry if your kids are loud, they’re kids,” “Go to…

Flying with Twin Toddlers (or multiple small children)

Traveling with Twin Toddlers
I wrote a blog post when the girls took their very first flight about traveling with babies/twins, but my girls have definitely grown out of it at this point. So I decided it’s time to update! This last week I flew with for the first time by myself, and it was also their first time having their own tickets/seats. Although paying for two more tickets is NOT fun, them having their own seats/space was SO…

Romy & Piper’s 2nd Birthday

2nd Birthday Party Toddler Twins Pizza Party
It’zza Piperomy Pizza Party!!! I actually think it was my nephew who came up with the “pizza party” theme. Months ago, he commented about how their names sound like “pepperoni” together, so we should have a pizza party for their 2nd birthday. The girls conveniently love pizza, so that’s what we did! Pizza As soon as we decided on a pizza party I knew I wanted to get Sgt. Pepperoni’s. It’s our favorite pizza and…

Favorite Books for Toddlers

Favorite Books for Toddlers
Our girls LOVE their books, and happen to have very STRONG opinions on which are their favorites. Every nap time and bed time (and sometimes throughout the day) we go through a pile of books before we settle on what to read. The good news is that 90% of the time, the girls agree! It’s so cute/hilarious. Here are the books that currently make the cut (and generate lots of engagement) from Romy and Piper!…
