In the hopes of being more mindful we have adopted the “4 gift rule“, also known as the “Want, Need, Read and Wear” approach. After so…

DIY 2nd Birthday Party ideas

We’ve celebrated more than one 2nd birthday, and coming up with original themes is a bit more challenging every time… This year for Ava’s party, we decided to go with something completely different. Hinting to the fact that she’s still at home, and such a “mama’s girl”. A “TWO cool for School” theme seemed perfect! I made a quick invite on CANVA.com (every mama’s best friend when it comes to designing your own stationary) and sent it to our nearest…

Weaning our toddler

Weaning-our-toddler

There is so much information, tips and advice on breastfeeding, especially regarding milk supply, establishing a routine, facing challenges and more. Kicking-off your breastfeeding journey can be difficult but so can deciding to stop. It took me weeks to feel okay about weaning our toddler. I had to look past the mom-guilt and “expert voices” telling me it will happen when Ava is ready. Ava, ready to stop nursing? Not this girl! She could have gone for at least another…
