Do you ever wish your kids would just stick with what works? It seems like as soon as we find the perfect schedule, get the routine down to a science and everyone is well-rested, they suddenly stop napping or begin catapulting themselves from the crib.

Bath time is one of our favorite times of the day. The boys love playing in the water and I love having them contained in a small space where they can only make a mess with water for about 20 minutes.

Even since he was a baby, his sleeping habits have been less than desirable. We have never had a lullaby CD, but when I showed the "Over The Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project" CD, he was excited about having his very own lullaby CD and wanted to listen to it that [...]
