Counting Marshmallows #KidsintheKitchen

kids in the kitchen, memeThis #KidsintheKitchen series started to showcase the ways we can educate our kids while having fun in the kitchen. This week I had the opportunity to switch gears and play in the kitchen with my niece. Ella is three years old, super smart and super sharp.

I brought her into the kitchen to help make a treat for her cousins but knew there wasn’t much she could do since I was at the stove. I gave her a scoop of marshmallows to count and group together instead. I asked for piles of 3. She knew how to count and knew when she messed up.

#KidsintheKitchen Counting Marshmallows

So while a 3 year old might not be the best helper for cooking they can be the best entertainment while slaving over a hot stove 🙂

I would love for you to join me and my co-hosts, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen.

Keeping Babies Snug and Dry with Huggies Giveaway

You might think we are out of the diaper changing stage BUT I take care of my niece Madi each day and my other niece Ella once in a while. In fact Ella was here the other night meeting @OurDogSam and hanging out while her parents were doing something.

Ella is almost 2 and like most toddlers very active. Using diapers that fit and move against twisting and turning bellies and legs is a must. I recently gave Ella (my sister-in-law) the opportunity to try out the new Huggies Snug and Dry diaper with Leak Lock®. The diaper features even more absorbency with Absorb-away layers and long-lasting core, SnugFit waistband and Grip Tabs for a secure fit and stopping guards around the legs and waist.

The update from Ella’s parents are good. The diapers worked to contained leaks and blowouts. Huggies are already the diaper of choice for this family so there isn’t much convincing to keep using Huggies Snug and Dry. Buy them for yourself at Walmart and other major retailers.

Win your own Huggies Snug and Dry diapers with Leak Lock®( coupon valued at $24) from LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too! Tell me what brand of diapers are/were your favorites.

Project 52 – Week 8

Welcome to my 7th installment of Project 52, my attempt to capture life in a couple pictures once a week rather than each day.

I can’t believe I almost forgot to post this week’s post. Actually I did forget about the post until Rob mentioned it a few minutes.  This week was busy too. I had a whole day with both my little nieces, we went to the Circus and the weather was gorgeous one day so we spent it outside. Enjoy!

cousins, just chillin

it feels like spring
