Get outside and Play!

One of my favorite things to do with my kids especially around this time of year is to get outside and PLAY! Right now when the air is getting a little cooler, the mosquitoes are finally dissipating and it's actually bearable to wander outside (when there's not a swimming pool around!), is my favorite time to get out and play with my three little ones.

My sixteen month old son is definitely an out-doors boy! He could literally stay outside all day. He loves to toddle around the grass, get in and out of his little play car, walk up and down the driveway, chase butterflies, and just do whatever he can! He is happiest when he is outdoors and always has the biggest smile on his little face! He always cries when it's time to come inside and usually I have to pick him up and carry him since he refuses to walk!

My daughter is really into the out door play ground scene! She loves going to the park and meeting friends. We love to go as a family and meet friends and there's nothing more satisfying as a parent than seeing your child play well with other children. Imagination at is best is when the playground becomes a castle and all the little girls become princesses running away from dragons! It doesn't seem to matter if we come with friends or with just ourselves, if there is a little girl on that play ground, she won't be a stranger for long! The other day my daughter met a little girl with a bike on the play ground and before I knew it they were both taking turns riding it, and looking forward to their next play date!

My oldest son loves action! He loves bikes, four wheelers, slides, swings, anything that gets him moving! He never sits still! He loves riding his mini four wheeler to the neighbor's house and they run around and play outside for ours. It is so amazing how much kids can do when the TV is turned off! Even thought their first choice always seems to be TV, I've found that when I just leave it off, the imaginations always start to sneak in and before you know it they're outside playing tag or involved in a very serious game of four-square! Also, it amazes me how when my kids are all outside together, the older ones take care and watch after the little ones! I love seeing the softer side of my kids, and playing outside seems to bring out the best in everyone!

If you want to pledge to play outside go to Clorox2 Play 2Day Pledge hub, to play outside!

My Little Wiggley Man!

Well, when I saw the commercial for Huggies new Little Movers Slip-on Diapers I could not stop laughing because my youngest son is the REASON for that product! My son Cash is 15 months old and never ever stops moving! He is the youngest of three, and yet, I am still surprised at his capability to wiggle away from me. I call him my "Little Houdini." He is so wiggly, and I wish I was kidding, but many times if it's just a wet diaper, I will just change his diaper while he is standing up because he HATES it when I lay him down to change his diaper! I also many times just let him go without pants because it takes less time to change the diaper when I don't have to remove pants! But sometimes when I don't have him in pants, he can wiggle out of his diaper all together! Aaaack! Somehow, I just don't remember my older two being this hard to change!

I've actually been joking a lot with my other friends with kids this age about how difficult it is to change their diapers when to my surprise I saw the Huggies Little Movers Slip-On Diapers commercial. I laughed the entire time at all of those adorable wiggly babies because I know EXACTLY why they made this product! What a relief! I also laughed at the "step-by-step" catch-and-release directions the commercial gives about how to quickly slide on the diaper and let the baby go! I can't wait to find these at the store! They cannot stock these soon enough!

Now that Cash is walking on his own he seems to think that he does not need any help of any kind and is fiercely independent. He wants to feed himself, walk every where, even in the grocery store, he wants to play with all the toys he sees his older siblings play with and he is especially independent when it comes to me being involved. He thinks I should observe all the fancy things he does, but not help him with any of it! He seems to be offended when I lay him down for a diaper change and every single diaper change is a huge ordeal. So any product that makes that diaper change go faster will be a must-have! I actually just saw the commercial for the first time about a week ago and haven't been to the store yet for diapers, but these will certainly be on the list!
