The Playhouse Remodel

The grandparents bought this playhouse for the girls’ birthday last year, and I finally got around to re-painting it! When I was picking paint colors, a reader sent me this post by Almost Makes Perfect. At first I didn’t want to copy her colors, but then I decided I loved what she picked and why re-invent the wheel? 😉 So if you want the paint color info, she details it all out in her post!…

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.

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!

Although paying for two more tickets is NOT fun, them having their own seats/space was SO…
