Is your baby waking too early? If you're a parent, I'd be willing to bet a fair bit of money that you've wished, at least once, that you're child would sleep just a little longer in the morning, or have longer naps. amiright?
Which brings me to week 6, the final week of my Baby Whisperer Sleep Training Series. We're talkin' 'bout wakin' that baby up to make her sleep longer.
For most of us, the holidays can get pretty stressful. With all the parties and events to attend, shopping there is to do, and planning to coordinate, we end up feeling anxious and run down. Not at all joyous and relaxed as the word holiday is meant to imply. A huge part of the festive season is eating. Everywhere we turn there's food to be tasted. You probably have obligations to bring a dish or two to a certain event. Let me ease some of your stress by suggesting some Deliciously Simple Cheesy Holiday Appetizers.
All of these ideas are so simple you'll be left wondering why you've been spending your time making boring cheese balls and basic bruschetta as your go-to Holiday Appetizers.
If you've been keeping up with Hampers&Hiccups, you'll know that we try not to use disposable products in our home. One of the first items to go was paper napkins. Come to think of it, I don't know that I ever really bought them to begin with. My first cloth napkins were inherited hand-me-downs. I loved using them so much that I vowed to keep up with it.
Cloth napkins are so much more fun and enjoyable to use than the paper alternative. Yes, you can get the ‘sposies in all sorts of colours, shapes, and designs, but they're still not very nice to use. A cloth napkin is much softer and pliable. Plus, often times they're larger and obviously more durable.
If you're into giving homemade gifts, these make a great one! Try selling them to pick up some extra cash. I've done both!
A couple of years ago I made my first set. They're a Christmas/winter set and I love them! They are a little on the smaller side, 8″ or so, but they get the job done and look beautiful and elegant on the table.
LAST spring I bought some material to make a spring/summer set. Over a year ago! I finally got around to whipping them up specially for this post. Nothing like blogging to motivate a mama. I decided to make them larger than the previous set, but the same style.
