Laundry Round-Up

by RealMomofNJ on May 31, 2012 in Tips

I love doing laundry (really!), buuuuuutttttt I don’t do it well. My failure is this: I suck at folding and putting it away because I do too many loads in one day. I’m awesome at collecting, sorting, washing, and drying laundry, but once dry, it either piles up in baskets or on the couch waiting to be folded, or…

Spittin’ n’ Hittin’

by RealMomofNJ on May 30, 2012 in Parenting Techniques

P has begun spitting and hitting. Charming, I know. We’ve explained to her that both are unacceptable under any circumstances, but she’s been exploring her boundaries. Every now and then she likes to respond or our explainations with more spitting (while smiling, of course) or a playful tap, to push the envelope.

She pushes that envelope right into a timeout.

by RealMomofNJ on May 26, 2012 in Safety Info

I recently posted that we were going on vacation, and I listed all of the things that we brought for P on the plane. One thing that was blatantly missing, however, was a car seat. We sat behind another 3-year-old on the plane and her parents had her car seat and locked her down for the flight. Willy and…

Chicken Sausages, Peppers & Onions

Chicken Sausages, Peppers, and Onions

by RealMomofNJ on May 23, 2012 in Adult Food, Food & Recipes

Who doesn’t like sausages? More importantly, what kid doesn’t like sausages? They’re like hot dogs, but better. We prefer chicken or turkey sausages to pork or beef, mainly because they’re freaking delicious, not as greasy, and don’t make you feel like there is lead in your stomach after you eat them. They’re great broiled or grilled, of course, but…

Teachable Moments—For Me

by RealMomofNJ on May 20, 2012 in Life Lessons

Here’s a trendy phrase moms and dads are probably familiar with. Teachable moments. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically using the situation at hand as an opportunity to teach your child a valuable life lesson. Great idea, but I hear it used most often in a playful or facetious manner, generally when referring to something funny or…

by RealMomofNJ on May 17, 2012 in Random Info

Ever wonder how popular your birthday is (or isn’t)? Well there isn’t an app for that–yet–but there is a cool infographic that was recently featured on the Huffington Post’s Web site. It’s pretty interesting, as it ranks all 366 possible birthdays in order of commonality in the United States, and presents them in a colorful and fancy heatmap…
