Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby

During the day my attention is split between him and his toddler sister, so I felt like this one-on-one time was really good for him. But, all good things must come to an end and I decided it was time to night wean my co-sleeper…

Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me

Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me…I am very honoured to say that I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!  How cool!  I was nominated by Quirky Kay and to accept the award I’m supposed to write seven things about myself that perhaps you didn’t know and nominate a bunch of other blogs.  I wasn’t going to accept the nomination because it reminded me of those emails you got in high school telling you to pass it on or you’d have bad luck (which I never ever passed on…so I must be cursed).  But,  this type of post is not one I typically do and I thought it was a neat idea, so here it goes…
