Our Toddler Girl’s Room

After finding out I was pregnant with our son, we knew it would soon be time for our little girl to move into a big girl bed because we didn’t have a second crib and there was no way we’d be buying another one. After thinking it through and recognizing that our third spare bedroom […]

Building a Fairy House with Your Child

“There are fairies in the sky. All around you, fairies fly. Flit and flutter, tumble, twirl, when the wind blows, fairies swirl…” The above is a cute little excerpt from A Fairy Friend, an enchanting, whimsical book my husband and I recently purchased for our daughter for her birthday.
