Frequent urination: Not a UTI so why's my 4 year old child peeing so much?

It's well documented here that I've recently potty trained my 22 month old son...of course potty training is never a one and done thing in the first few months.  At least for me, I'm still always asking him if he has to go and we're constantly running to the potty.  I guess what I'm saying is it's basically a hot topic at our house right now.

But over the last 10 days or so I started to notice that my 4 year old daughter has been frequently peeing.  When I say frequently here's how it went just since dinner today:


Yes, she's peed 10 times in an less than two... woop, making that 11 times...7:49 ... hours.  I left her room for bed at 7:20 and as you can see she's gotten up six times since then to pee. 

Pillow Pets Dream Lites and teaching my kids 'want' vs 'need'

My kids picked up some major loot on Easter...being the only grandchildren on both sides they're always spoiled.  I seriously think they'd get a gift if they cut their toe nails straight...but isn't that what grandparents are for?

My almost-two year old son got one of those turtle Turtle Constellation Night Lights.  It projects stars and the moon onto the ceiling and walls in three different colors.  I have to admit it is pretty cool.  Of course, my daughter was instantly envious (especially since her gift of Cinderalla shoes had to be returned for a smaller size).  Almost immediately she starts talking about how she wants to get the Pillow Pets Unicorn Dream Lite like one of the little girls in her pre-school class.


Easy Easter crafts for toddlers and kids

After weeks of planning our 1st Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Potluck (I know I need to have a second to make it the first annual) went off without a hitch.  The kids had so much fun, the parents enjoyed a little adult conversation, we got to catch up with some old friend, and the weather couldn't have been better after snow just five days before. 

Not knowing if the weather would be nice enough to keep the kids outside for very long I had a few easy and toddler-friendly Easter crafts planned.  Everyone loved them and they were perfect for all the kids who ranged in age from 1-5 years old.

Happy Easter! (It was at my house)

Just thought I'd share a few pictures from Easter 2013...everyone was in their Sunday best and on their best behavior. (Yay!)  Any mom trying to get two (or more) kids smiling at once knows it's no easy feat.

For those of you who've been following, you may remember I didn't have such good luck (or cooperation) at the Christmas Card "photo shoot"...

Walt Disney World: 11 Must Do's for little girls

My four year old seriously lucked out.  She's been begging us to go to Disney World for the better part of a year and we kept putting her off -- telling her we needed to wait until her little brother got a little older.  But when my husband was scheduled to go on a business trip to Orlando we decided to hop on the tail end of his trip and make our first visit to Disney World.   (Actually, it turned out to be the best time to go because at not yet 2, my son enjoyed everything FREE of charge! Cha ching!)

I planned our trip for about three months to ensure we hit all the highlights -- focusing, this trip, on my daughter.  It's easy to see why people go back year after year to Disney World, there's just so much to do.  I figured this would be the only trip my son wouldn't mind missing out on the pirates and the "boy" stuff because...well, he was just too little to know any different.
