    The Perfect Daily Schedule for a 4 Year Old

    April 8, 2019

    It is difficult to come up with the perfect daily schedule for a 4 year old. They are busy and learning so much at this age. And then, of course, you have to balance the needs of their personality with the rest of the family’s. It can also be an age of transition for sleep.…

    Jack’s Preschooler Summary: 3.75 Years

    January 28, 2019

    I can hardly believe that Jack will be four in just a couple of months from now. I think I’ve been so busy with the arrival of Charlotte that the reality of him growing up a little bit more has failed to dawn on me until recently. He is no longer a toddler and in…

    Jack’s August 2018 Summary (3 Years, 5 Months)

    September 12, 2018

    Sometime during the month of August, I realised that Jack had worked his way through the challenging phase he was previously going through. As each week is passing, he is becoming less ‘toddler’ and more ‘little boy’. Part of that is lovely and exciting, while another part of it is sad. I guess that’s just…

    Jack’s July 2018 Summary (3 Years, 4 Months)

    August 15, 2018

    If you’re unaware, I’m currently pregnant (read = exhausted) with baby #3. The result is that my brain is in somewhat of a fog at the moment, so recalling details from earlier in the morning is difficult…let alone last month! Regardless, I’m going to do my very best to update you on how Jack is…

    Jack’s June 2018 Summary (3 Years, 3 Months)

    July 11, 2018

    Big changes started to take place this month. Jack started to transition from one nap…to none. Yes, I was that excited about it. Coupled with some boundary-pushing behaviour, it has been a month of challenges for the two of us. However, it was still a good month and despite the challenges, we saw improvements, which…

    If you’ve read Annie’s May summary then you’ll know how hectic of a month it was. Poor Jack really did have a difficult time with sickness, but he was a trooper through it all! 🙂 (Credit for the GORGEOUS photo of Jack goes to photoadventure.co.nz .

    May 2, 2018

    If you’ve kept up with any of my social media then you should have seen that we are expecting baby #3. Because of this, April was not an easy month for us as a family. I was sick. So sick. We were all challenged by the change in routine and my limited abilities. However, Jack…

  • Why Rest Time Needs To Be A Part of Your Child’s Routine

    April 16, 2018

    There comes a time in a toddler, and even a baby’s life when they refuse to nap. They play or whine or something in between, but they ‘re not sleeping. So, what do you do? Do you get them up? My answer is, no. Why? Because rest is a vital part of the day. So…

  • Jack’s March 2018 Summary (3 Years Old)

    April 4, 2018

    March is a busy month for us. It holds our wedding anniversary, my mother’s birthday, and Jack’s birthday. We’re not into throwing big birthday parties except for milestone birthdays (i.e. 1, 13, 18, 21, etc). So, for Jack’s 3rd birthday we just had a quiet day. I also thought that for this month it would…
