Ironic Adventures


Mama, it’ll be 2015 soon!

If only kids could understand how stressful the passing of time is for grown ups! Mine don’t. In fact, on the day Thing One turned 6, he said, “Soon I’ll be 7!” He finds excitement in growing up, in the years and months passing, and I can’t believe it’s April {Continue Reading…}

St. Patrick’s Day Printables

I’ve been busy and am excited to share what we’ll be doing for our St. Patrick’s week! I’ve create a HUGE pack of learning activities for age 3-6, with over 25 different activities.

What’s in the pack? What isn’t in the pack?! You’ll find: counting up to 20, number {Continue Reading…}

I’ve been working so hard on snuggley things for Thing Three…when Thing Two called me out on an important fact: I have not yet made him a “special blanket.”

And he’s right. If truth be told, I didn’t make Thing One’s blanket until right after Thing Two was born. {Continue Reading…}

Super Bowl XLVIII

Thing One is really (and I mean really) into NFL football. It’s his “thing.” We all enjoy football, but The Geek and Thing One are the SUPER fans in our house. I wanted to make something fun for us to follow the PlayOffs over the next few weeks.
