And great music-remember how much you loved that? Curated baby name lists are great for a million reasons, especially when you have a specific theme or idea in mind, such as nature, popular TV shows and characters, or even celebrity baby names (this year’s celeb mamas are picking some pretty rad names!). Now there are times that my kids will even say they would rather just be in a life jacket. We guarantee none of your child’s future friends will have the same name as them, and if they do, then you know their parent must have awesome taste, just like you!

Boho-inspired baby names are earthy, eccentric, and a little bit wild, which is why we love and adore every single one of them. 6. And just a little heads up: there must be something about the holiday season that gets people in the mood. Plus, why some parents are skipping holiday gifts this year. From getting the language right to framing conversations in a way that’s appropriate for each individual family, there’s a lot to consider, and these new resources will help parents handle these tough talks. Once your kids get used to the idea of passing on toys and clothes they don’t need or use, it will become routine to them.
After much thought and deliberation, I had to find a polite way to put a stop to all the toys and-believe it or not-our family and friends thought it was the best idea ever.

Somewhere in the depths of his being, he believed that somehow, someway, his mother could help him in his last, horrifying moments.

If you enjoy baking and crafts, then go for it, but don’t feel like every lesson needs to be its own Pinterest board. It is so hard, and yet-here we all are, doing it, living it. You’re doing a fantastic job. The ones you love doing and can’t wait for each year.
