Inside Games!

mombaby (500 x 657)

Sometimes you’re not able to make it out and about and after so long of being stuck inside surely your kid’s attitudes will reflect that! Need a little bit of some different ideas to keep them occupied , try some of our personal favorites!

Dance Party!
Turn all the lights down and turn up the music! This is one of our favorite activities to do right before nap time, if the kiddos can’t slow down. My kids love having a ‘flash light freeze dance party’. Everyone gets a flash light to dance with and mama is in charge of the music. It’s fun to see what poses my little guys come up with when the music freezes. It gets the most giggles of any game in our house!

Restaurant & inside picnics:
This one is great around meal times. Have your children take orders from each other and then do your best to prepare said meal. Often times we have to use our imagination (since we don’t drink pop with lunch! Or have brownie sandwiches! Despite how awesome that would be!). We also will have a living room picnic and I’ll put scenic pictures onto the TV and then we talk about all the fun places we had lunch that day. It makes a great dinner conversation!… [read more]

Kate Middleton Video Proves She Did Not Let Her Baby’s Gender Slip (Video)

Kate Middleton Video Proves She Did Not Let Her Baby's Gender Slip

You know how when you’re in the middle of something big or exciting you think you remember every single detail and later on you realize that your memory wasn’t exactly as sharp as you thought? Well that appears to be what happened earlier this week when Kate Middleton visited Grimsby. The Duchess accepted a gift from a well-wisher and it later spread like wildfire that she stopped short of asking if the teddy bear was for her daughter.

Lisa Hewson was nearby in the line of well-wishers that was receiving Kate and she happened to snap video of that all important moment and guess what? There is no slip on Kate’s part about the gender of her baby.

Jessica Simpson Wants Her Son to Be Super Smart

Jessica Simpson Wants Her Son to Be Super Smart

I have to give Jessica Simpson some credit here if this story is true. Supposedly the Fashion Star judge has been caught reading to her growing baby bump.  I guess Jess has been reading up on her pregnancy do’s and don’t's and came across the suggestion about reading to your baby inutero.  Not only has Jess been caught reading out loud to her bump but she also chose an American classic, The Great Gatsby.

Apparently Jess thinks that if she starts reading to her (rumored) son now it’ll make him smarter later on. I’m going to bet the she never picked up a copy of The great Gatsby before, or probably any other American classics for that matter, and I can’t really imagine it ranking as a favorite book of hers! I think the suggestion to read to your baby is actually rooted in the notion that it can be a bonding experience and it’ll make your soothing voice more familiar after you deliver and are trying to soothe a colicky baby.  I’m not so sold on it making the baby smarter from the get go.
