Having just had my first child six months ago, I have recently experienced the influx of generosity that surrounds a new addition to the world. It seems that everyone we know and everyone our parents know wanted to treat us and our baby boy. Whilst every last gift was so thoughtful and so lovely, there were some that stood out more than others. There are also some that I would have gifted my friends, had I had a baby before them...
Finding the perfect gift for a brother or sister can be a challenging task. Let’s face it; sibling relationships can be complicated, and they oftentimes go through a series of highs and lows. It’s this complicated family dynamic that can make gift shopping for siblings a headache. After countless holidays and birthdays each year, many people find themselves at a loss when their brother or sister’s big day comes around.
Parents often work hard to come up with summer activities for their elementary schoolers. While these small kiddos need to be occupied, that’s often the case for middle schoolers in the summer as well. If you are trying to keep a tween or young teen’s mind and body busy over the summer, check out these ideas.
Every generation new names come in style, and some other names go out of style. Meanwhile... Hannah has been a common name for a very long time. To get to my point, I must be getting old because the common baby names of 2019 sound strange to me. I know that once these kids grow up that their names will be the norm and my name will be considered... old. Like anyone named Linda. Not Beatrice however, apparently that is making a come back.
Baby names haven't been something I ever thought of until my cousin named her son Finley. At first, I thought it was a strange choice (If she was a girl she was going to name her Gracie)... but it wasn't long before I realized that Finley is actually a popular choice for baby boys right now. How are baby name trends made? Why do they change so dramatically between generations? How can I find out more? Well, good news! I did some research, and found out some interesting information on what's going on with baby names right now. Truth be told... things are getting kinda weird when it comes to popular choices for baby names in 2019. There is a huge increase in Fortnite and Game Of Thrones names, as well a spike in... animal names? Not to mention, vintage names are making an obvious come back... although truth be told I haven't been able to find any reason why. I guess what is trendy just comes and goes in circles.
Teens are obviously drawn to enigmatic and mysterious behaviors. All they want is to find their own voice and test their independence. Once we were there, remember? As a parent, we have to face the challenge of finding an equilibrium between permitting them to be liberated and valuing their privacy while also ensuring their safety. And in this digital age, it is even harder to monitor what our kids are up to with their devices, who they talk to, and sites they visit online. The scary part is that there are several dangerous apps your kids can use to post and read content that is inappropriate for their age.
Keeping your kids entertained day after day is an exceptionally difficult task, and every parent appreciates having a little extra help to keep kids occupied. A lot of the time, it goes a long way to keeping parents sane. But playing Angry Birds on your iPad isn’t exactly your idea of a good use of their time, right? Having stimulating and educational activities for your kids to engage in is important for all parents, but these services or toys can get pretty expensive once your child gets bored of them and wants the next, newest thing. That’s where the need for alternative forms of engagement step in, the best subscription boxes for kids might just be the right amount of fun and educational to give your children month over month.
Summer is right around the corner and it is time to start thinking about how you want to spend it. Some people like going on vacations and some people just like to do things locally. Either way, it is always an exciting time for the family. My favorite thing about summer are the memories that I make with my family and my friends. The time we spend together, the food we eat, and the drinks we drink. If you are looking for a few ideas for this years activities, here are six activities the family will love.
When we are young, we're told that we will marry the person of our dreams and eventually have our happily ever after. We assume that having our own family will mean that everything will be perfect. It'll be all sunshine and roses, right?
