This is a guest post written by Parker Time Founder & CEO, Kelly Johnson.   You’ve been preparing for motherhood for as long as you can remember and dreamed about holding your new baby as you gaze into her eyes. The bond between a mother and her child is one of the most precious and amazing gifts in the world. But what if that bond doesn’t come as easily as you anticipated? In some cases the art of bonding with your child takes tremendous work and time, especially if your child has special needs. Kelly Johnson, founder of Parker...

  When we first move into our new house (I know, almost two and a half years ago!) We went from having all carpets in our previous home to 100% hardwoods downstairs. We moved into this house with no area rugs and I had no luck finding any within our budget I actually liked. So we went two years with no area rugs and now that we have one, I finally realize the difference it makes when it comes to adding that cozy touch to a room! My one philosphy when it comes to decorating my house is simplicity. I don’t like things plastering...

Thanks to Viva Italia Days at Publix: Hunts Tomatoes, Progresso™ Brand Products, Kraft Parmesan Cheese, Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Breads, Betty Crocker™ Cookies for sponsoring today’s discussion.   Sometimes, coming up with a meal the whole family will enjoy is a task. My husband is a huge meat eater; me? Not so much. My kids have turned into the picky eaters I always prided myself they weren’t and sometimes, deciding on what to make for dinner is a headache. The one thing the whole family loves is a good pizza and...

Ever get stuck in traffic on a long car ride? You know sitting there for hours on end, with no moving in sight? I have. With a toddler. It’s not fun. I’m not a huge fan of sticking my kids in front of the TV, but sometimes we’re in situations where you just need something to help keep your child entertained for a little bit while you either need to get something done, are stuck in a long car ride, waiting at a doctors office – you name. Every parent can think of at least one situation you’ve been in when you...

This is a guest post written by Dina Gibbons, Freelance Writer provided by Hollywood Connections PR. Parents, you know that moment when your kid falls fast asleep in the car; that moment you secretly jump for joy because it means some peace and quiet for you. But then you cringe when you hit a bump, turn a corner or go around a sharp curve, knowing that they have a case of “noodleneck” and their head falls over causing them to slump over or even worse, they knock heads with their sibling or friend next to them. Suddenly they are awake...

If you had told me a balance bike would make a difference when teaching my kids how to ride a bike several years, I may not have believed you. But, now? I know how much it can really help your child’s balance at a younger age to help better prepare them when it comes time to snap those training wheels off! We were introduced to firstBIKE several months ago when they sent my daughter an adorable pink bike to try for herself. She had seen her big brother learn to ride a bike and tested out his balance bike, but she was super eager...

As the weeks fly by, we are getting more and more ready to welcome our new little sweetie into the world! There are so many things I just totally forgot about raising a newborn, while so many things feel like I was doing just yesterday with my two oldest. I remember both of my kids had the need to be swaddled for so long and wrapping them up tight into a nice cozy blanket was a nap time and bedtime ritual. Swaddling also has its benefits : Helping infants sleep longer and reducing spontaneous arousal Helping to keep infants in the supine...
