Over the Top! Tie Dye and Rainbows!

Posted on

Rainbows and Tie Dyes, Oh My!

It sort of hit me today, as I was playing with Margo at the playground today… Goldie was in a high back carry, in my Easycare rainbow wrap. Margo had her freshly tie dyed t-shirt from yesterday’s tie dying adventure. I had on these gypsie flowy pants… We were all fairly clean and properly shod… But, then I saw us in the reflection of some glass window and thought, ‘Oh man, we are just over the top today! Rainbows and tie dye!?!’. Oh my!

A Dr. Sears Seminar… the Attachment Parent Guru!

While feeding her baby, who jumps in the picture with the famous Dr. Sears... Yes, that would be me!

While breastfeeding her baby, who should jump into the picture with the famous Dr. Sears… Yes, that would be me!  My friend Angie was there with her tiny little newborn, who is just under 3 weeks old.  Angie was chatting to Dr. Sears after his seminar and asked if she could have a picture, so of course, I barged in… only to realize halfway through posing that I was actually feeding Goldie in the Ergo baby carrier.   Read the rest of this entry

Less Tummy Time, More Mummy Time

Can’t stop smootching her head!!!

Honestly, I would like to know of one baby who actually enjoys tummy time. Some babies tolerate tummy time, but how many babies squeal in delight the second you put them on their bellies? I’m not talking about a baby who is 4 or 5 months old and is getting ready to crawl soon. I’m talking about a very young baby. I’m not a professional in the area of infant physiological development, but it’s pretty obvious to tell when a baby is enjoying something or not… Yet, tummy time is something that is pushed so heavily! And why??? Read the rest of this entry

Slingy Slingy Ding Dong: Make Your Own Baby Ring Sling

Ring Sling Baby

My first attempt: now it’s like a piece of clothing I put on every day!

Goldie was around 8 weeks old and I went to an attachment parent/babywearing mummy meet. I had her in a Hug-a-Bub, which is an Australian big wrappy thing, similar to the one they sell in America, the Moby.

Mop mop mop…

Luckily, I vacuumed the house the day before we had our homebirth.  But, after two weeks of being at home and not leaving the house much… things were starting to look a bit crumby (think toddler mess).  Art took Margo out for a few hours, so I threw Goldie in the Hug-a-Bub and got busy, vacuuming and mopping the entire house.  Nice to have a clean, fresh house!
