A New Read for Kids


It's time to get back to reading at the Kerr house. It's been fun this year because B has turned into an excellent reader. Recently we have been trying to find new books for him to read to keep his vocabulary growing.

This week we tried out "I'm Dreaming About..." by Dan Jackson. It's a cute book all about cats - which we loved! Some of the words were a little more difficult for B but we got through it and it is a book we will be keeping around for future reading times for sure!

If you're looking for a fun read and/or want to learn about cats then this is a great choice for you!

Sleep

Sleep - what a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, if you're like me, it's a rare occurrence that it happens. It's not that my kids are bad sleepers - they actually do quite well - but between homework, housework, the business, the blog, and the occasional interruptions during the night sleep has become a much needed, but lacking, essential at the Kerr house. Because we are learning as we go, things aren't perfect but here are some tips that we have learned to help our kids, and us, sleep better.

1. Keep them dry - for the little ones this means a clean diaper right before bed. For the older, it means no drinks after dinner is over. I'm sure this will change as they continue to grow but for now, it helps us get through the night without accidents and the accompanying middle of the night sheet changes.

2. Keep them warm - for some of you this may not be a problem but because we live in a cold area, keeping the kids warm at night can be a challenge. We use swaddles for the little ones and footed pajamas for the older crowd. Mom and dad also check right before they go to bed to make sure no one has kicked their covers off - just to be safe.

3. Have a routine - it doesn't have to be fancy, but do the same thing every night before bed. At our house this involves pajamas, potty, teeth brushing, prayer, potty again, and then getting tucked in. It's simple but all the kids know exactly what to do and how to get it done which makes my stress much less.


4. Cut off those naps - yes, all my kids still take naps (even my first grader). While I love this nap time one thing I have learned is that if my kids sleep too late they have a much harder time going to sleep at night. Yes, there are occasions where we let this happen but on an average day my kids are required to be in their beds at 1:00 and if they are not up at 3:00 I go get them. For me, waking them up is hard but well worth it because I know that at 3:00 they have had enough time to sleep and will still have enough time to play so they sleep in the evening. I'm also going to note that this has also helped us at nap time - they know if they play around instead of going to sleep they won't get the nap they need because mom will wake them up when time is over.

5. Go to bed yourself - this is the hardest part for me but, you have to go to bed. Some days I crash right after the kids do but I'm learning that this is ok. Yes, I often stay up to work or even just spend some quite time but if I listen to my body and make sure I get enough sleep we are all a much happier family.


If you'd like some more great sleep tips - these from an expert - then you should check out this amazing book by The Sleep Lady. You can find it using the link on the photo - or you can enter to win it as part of our Pampers prize package below.


Another great place to find sleep tips will be during the Pampers Twitter party tomorrow. We would like to invite you to please join Pampers and The Sleep Lady on March 3rd at 9 pm EST to learn about the best ways parents can help their little ones transition to Daylight Savings Time. It's going to be a great chat!

Devon's Choice + Cash Giveaway

Devon's Choice (1)Devon's Choice Life holds no surprises for Devon Murphy. Her life consists of keeping tabs on her aging Irish father, working part time at a coffee shop, and building her online graphics design business. Devon’s only tricky situation is a shallow relationship with the pampered and affluent Michael Turner, who sees her as just another woman to conquer. Following his father’s death, Brandon’s only goal is to expand the family business and live life on his own terms. That is, until he walks into the coffee shop one snowy evening and meets the enchanting, red-haired barista behind the counter. But can Devon and Brandon’s attraction for each other be strong enough to help erase their deepest disappointments and renew their faith in God?


 Excerpt: Brandon looked over at her neutral expression. Whatever kind of relationship she had with Michael Turner didn’t seem to be making her happy. At that moment, all he wanted to do was to make her forget all about the jerk. As if sensing him watching her, Devon turned her head enough to make eye contact with him. The faint, milky glow from the streetlight showed enough of her features for him to see a soft blush warm her cheeks. Under her dark lashes, he watched her sea green eyes glint invitingly as her soft lips turned up at the corners. In that moment, his resolve to keep the date on a friendly level came crashing down.
