Bath Time Fun

My 16 month old son loves to take baths. Up until recently he has been quite content with just splashing water all over and playing with his rubber duckies. It has come time to experiment with objects which can be added to his bath that are both fun and safe for him. All of these objects we already have in our home so no need to go out and make any special purchases.

Natural Methods For Preventing and Relieving Leg Cramps During Pregnancy

I am now in the third trimester of my second pregnancy. Overall I have been feeling good and time seems to be passing by so quickly. What I didn't expect were these awful leg cramps that have been occurring during the night. This has just started recently and occurs during sleep. I wake up to this pain that feels so intense. I did not experience this during my first pregnancy so I had no idea what to do except grit my teeth and bare it. I knew though that I could not continue having this without trying to do something about it. So research it is! 

Here is what I found out! 

Leg cramps are very common in pregnancy, especially during the third trimester. So that explains it for me!!!

While they are more common during the night, they can happen any time during the day.

Treat Cups Made From Recyclables

I seem to be constantly trying to come up with new ways to recycle items that would normally make its way to the garbage. I have really started to become a little bit nutty in the garbage department but for now I think that's okay.
This is a cute little project that even little ones could help with. I think they would be great for party and shower favors or could even make a cute little gift holder.

What you will need for this project:

- empty yogurt containers
- plastic bags
- glue or tape 
(I used tape at first but found it didn't work well so ended up using hot glue)
- scissors
- crumpled paper similar to tissue paper 
(I used paper that our peaches were wrapped in)
- stickers (optional)
- treats
