A Box of Children’s Books

My local library has a set of really cool boxes that kids like me can check out. They are full of children’s books and activities all centered around one theme. One box is has books that tell you about the world. It has a map puzzle, books by international authors, figurine doll toys that represent people from different cultures, and books that show me how different kids around the world live their lives. It was a lot of fun to play with the toys and read those stories. I was super young, so mom will probably check it out again so that we can read those stories again and again as I get older and understand more.

“Learning Colors” Box of Children’s Books

The most recent box of children’s books that we checked out from the library is all about learning colors! There are big books and little books, short board books with textures, and longer story books with beautiful illustrations. The two games included in this box are extremely fun, too! One is a fishing game that’s super easy for me to play. The colorful felt fish have their color written/embroidered on them, and the fishing pole has velcro on the end so that I can “catch” the fish. There’s also a magnet game that let’s me sort colors out. I think both games are great for me because they’re entertaining. They’re also helpful for older kids who already know their colors because it helps them understand them better through these activities.

Which Books Do You Love?

It’s awesome that we can check this box out from the library, and it also gives mom ideas about which books and games I could really benefit from at home. I’m thinking she’s going to get me the fishing game. It’s my absolute favorite.

Easter Gifts

Apparently Easter is turning into a mini-Christmas these days. Mom’s words, not mine. I haven’t been around for 2 years yet, but she’s ancient (almost 30, that’s a big number, right?), so she would know better than me. According to mom, the last thing I needed for Easter was more toys.


Quality over Quantity

Mom’s on this whole new kick about limiting the amount of toys I have an replacing it with meaningful items and experiences. She’s been reading a lot more about the Maria Montessori Method, and now she sees how too many toys are a distraction, don’t actually help me learn in the best way possible, and keep my mind jumping from item to item instead of focusing on and mastering one thing. She hid a lot of my toys in the closet, and I really didn’t even notice or care because I still have a lot to play with. I guess I’m cool with it! I still have fun, so why would I complain? But she said I can never have too many books!


An Easter Basket of Thrifted Books

Last year, my basket included books, shoes, and snacks. Guess what she did this year? A BASKET OF BOOKS! She found my entire gift at the thrift store. I really love it. She found an entire collection of “Disney’s Small World Library” and purchased some of those, like Italy, Sweden, and Kenya. I also got a book about a fire engine, and a book of prayer that is just my size. I like to read it to Mama & Daddy.

Shopping, Style & Clothing, Thrift
Mom and I went to the thrift store to make up for my latest growth spurt. 12 month clothes don’t really fit anymore, so I need 18 months, 24 months, and 2T clothes now! Mom loves “Half Price Days,” which are usually on holidays. So on the special 79 cents kids clothes and toys day thrift store sale & Presidents Day, we went thrifting! Overall, she spent less than $25 on me. Brand names in our haul include GAP, Polo, and a few one of kind pieces. We even got our Black Panther cosplay outfit from the thrift store. You can read how she made my shirt from an adult sized shirt over on her blog – Black Panther Cosplay DIY. Check out the pictures below, and see you next time!
I hope you go thrifting for your little ones, too! If you do, what has been your favorite find? xoxo mamas, papas, and Tiny Green Earthling caregivers Greyson King

Cloth Diaper Style Series, Cloth Diapers

Overnight Cloth Diaper Solution

I’ve been using cloth diapers since I was about a week old. After I turned one, the regular overnight cloth diaper just wasn’t working anymore, and mom was ready to throw in the towel! One day we visited our local cloth diaper shop (The Crunchy Boutique) and the owner told us about Pooters Diapers. Mom tried one and we were convinced. Now we have 3 Hemp Fitted diapers by Pooters in rotation! These diapers hold the most amount of liquid (18-31 oz), making leaks nearly nonexistent.


Hemp is Good for the Earth

Hemp makes great diapers because it can hold a lot of liquid and it is gentle enough to be in contact against the skin. Mom’s post about HEMP tells of all the great benefits of this plant. It can be food, paper, building materials, and cloth. It was used for thousands of years before it was criminalized. Hemp is antimicrobial and a lot more durable than cotton. The Constitution of the United States of America was written on hemp paper! It is an amazing plant with so many uses, and it is more eco-friendly than many of its mainstream counterparts like paper made from trees and cloth made from cotton.

Mom made nap time into a photo shoot! Here’s my Pooters Hemp Fitted Diaper in action.

Shopping

Mom said that she and Dad should teach me about what Christmas is really about – giving, spreading love, and basking in the holiday cheer. She says I have so many toys already, and she really doesn’t like how the holidays have become all about shopping. Therefore, she has set a limit on the number of gifts that I get each year. FOUR. Yep, just four. Well, she says that FOUR is the number to start with. keep reading

eco-friendly at target baby productsMommy loves Target, I just go along for the ride and hope she gets me something. My hope usually comes true. The Starbucks juice and milk are… juice and milk. They makes me happy. My favorite is the toy aisle. Oh! And The Dollar Spot. Mommy likes EVERY aisle. I mean EVERY AISLE. We go up and down them several times. I’m not exactly sure why, but it seems to make her happy. Of course we always visit the eco-friendly aisle and areas. These are the eco-friendly baby products that we love at Target. keep reading

Home Decor, Thrift

Black, White, and Wood Tones

“Vintage modern gender-neutral nursery” – that’s Mama’s description of my all-white nursery with black triangle decal accent wall and vintage wooden furniture. Mom loves my nursery – it’s her favorite room in the house. Based on the amount of love and work she put into it, I see why! I like it a lot, too. My favorite part is the newly new “Montessori” area. It has a mirror, instruments, my rocking chair, and lots of wooden toys.

tips to have a comfortable and safe natural pregnancy and birthMommy has some tips for you

Mommy says that all mommies experience each of their pregnancies differently.  No two pregnancies are the same.  She also told me to tell you that no matter how a pregnancy goes, there are a few things that can definitely help.  These things helped her to have a more comfortable time while carrying me in her belly, and we hope that they can help you, too.  If a more natural pregnancy & birth pique your interest, take these tips into mind to make your pregnancy more comfy, too. Disclaimer: I’m only one year old and mom has an architecture degree, so neither of us are doctors.  It is important that you always check with your doctor before starting anything.  And hey, you may even teach your doctor something if they don’t know these tips!
