Learning to Walk

It's time for another exciting adventure at the Kerr house. Baby G is learning to walk and that means that this mama needs to be on her toes at all times. Ha ha. It can be so much fun when kids go from stationary and adorable to mobile and constantly in trouble but there are some things you can do to prepare yourself. Here are just a few of our favorite tips for all the parents out there experiencing this change for the first time.

 1. It's hard at first. Expect your child to fall, need help, and possibly injure themselves. I know this is hard as a parent but now is the time you'll get to know your friendly family doctor really well as you deal with bruises, stitches, and very possibly broken bones. Know that this is normal and keep the diaper bag in the car so you're always ready to go on a moment's notice.
2. Make sure you are prepared to keep the floor clean. Anything on the floor is considered fair game for putting in the mouth so you'll want to be ready to sweep, vacuum, and pick up all day every day. You'll want to pick up everything including electronics, cords, food, laundry, and even dirty diapers. Make sure you also cover the outlets to keep fingers safe while you're at it.

 3. Be prepared for extra sleep. Something about this learning process meas that you can plan on extra snuggles with your little one as they will be extra tuckered out. As a side note, you should use this extra time to sit down because as soon as baby wakes up they'll be on the run again and you'll need to be ready to keep up. Your child also may start to sleep longer at night so make sure you're prepared with a good overnight diaper to keep your little one snoozing soundly.

 4. That sly smile. Yes, it's cute but when you see it you can bet that your sweet little one is into something. They are smart and they know. Don't let that adorable grin fool you into thinking they are innocent. If you can't find them playing with anything they shouldn't you might check your sniffer to see if the smile is all about the relaxation of a good poop.

 5. It doesn't last long. It may seem to go on forever but before you know it your baby will be grown up so make sure you enjoy these fun times while you can. Don't be afraid to explore with your baby, it may be the only chance you get.

Stuck In A Good Book?!?

Who is ready to read? I know I am. Fall has struck, the temperatures are leaving frost on my lawn, and nothing sounds better then to curl up in front of the fire with a good book.

Today I am excited to be featuring and giving away the first two book in the Festival Series to one Kerrific reader. The author, Robin Lynn Wildes, grew up in New England, but spent most summers in the South. She attended college in Amherst, studying Journalism. She is also a singer/songwriter, and she lives in Cleveland, Georgia. Recently she has been traveling between Georgia and South Carolina, promoting "The Festival Series", and spending time with her ailing grandmother, who is 89. 

Festival is a Contemporary Romantic Suspense Series that I can't wait to read. In book one, Love Never Ends, Meet Larson Evans, high powered attorney who lives in Boston Massachusetts. He lives with his daughter, Lexie, quite comfortably, but there is an air of sadness about him. He has never forgotten his wife, the mother of his child that left him nearly sixteen years ago. Margo Grenaldi Evans lives in Seneca, South Carolina. She's the owner of a successful small town bookstore, and is friend to many. No one knows her secret, that she has a husband and daughter somewhere in the world. While she's never forgotten them, she knows leaving them was the best thing for them. When a murder investigation sends Larson right into the town where Margo has been living, will the couple find their way back to each other!??!?!

And in book two, No Strings, When Nikki Evans steps in to help out her musician friend Richard in Helen, Georgia, she has no idea that in a matter of just a few hours, her entire world will be turned upside down. By a man, at that! Entrepreneur and former military pilot Joe Lewis comes to Helen on business with his army buddy Doug Lawson. The decision to walk into that club for a few beers will bring unexpected disarray to his once-ordered life when the sultry singer in the band catches his eye. Get the full story of what happens next, when the simple words, "No strings," put strings on everything. Follow the action through the streets of Helen, Georgia, and Abbeville, South Carolina, and get to know Nikki, the feisty sister of the beloved Larson Evans from Love Never Ends, in No Strings, Book Two of the Festival Series.
