I can't wait to finish start the girls' mermaid inspired room. I truly enjoy decorating kid spaces more than I do grown up ones. There's less pressure, not as many rules, and using fun patterns and colors makes sense. For their room, I chose mermaid partly because of their obsession with "The Little Mermaid," and partly because both girls love the ocean. They often draw pictures of themselves with Joe or me at the beach- I love that it's their happy place and it makes this theme more personal. Plus there's the fact that I immediately had a vision of coral, mint, and fun 'adventure' touches like arrows, maps, and treasure (i.e. lots of 'gold'). Doesn't that sound fun?! The room has slowly been coming together in my head, but I wanted to put it together on paper.

We reached a milestone recently. One of the girls is no longer a bed wetter! Can I get a woot woot?! Now that she has matured past this phase I look at it through an entirely new lens-- while it seems like it might last forever, it really won't. The important thing is keeping my girls' confidence in tact, and not losing my mind in the process! With that in mind, I'm sharing ten tips for making life easier when you have a bed wetter. Hint: you'll both get through it!
I've been keeping a running list of things to do with the kids this summer. I go a little stir crazy if we sit around the house all day. On day 2 of summer break, I was all "We've gotta get out of here!" Also it's super tempting to turn on Netflix or hand them my iPad if I don't have a game plan. Some of these activities are basics (bubble fun!) while others are more unique (the world explorer game!). Plus I'm a box checker and I love the idea of printing out a list and checking off each little activity as we do it--even the simple ones. Who's with me? So here goes. Oh and leave a comment with any of your go-tos that I missed!
