Mom, It’s Booster Seat Time! + Britax Giveaway

Britax Pinnacle Booster Seat

The Ginocchio family hit another milestone. Our youngest, four-and-a-half-year-old Sloane, delivered a message clear and proud, “Mom, I’m too big for my car seat. I want a big girl booster!” I couldn’t really argue with her. After all, she was growing fast, and it was getting more and more difficult to get her car seat buckles clicked.

I realized in that moment that she had transformed from my sweet baby girl into an active and energetic big kid. Was my initial resistance to abandon her trusty car seat actually my way of trying to slow down time? (more…)

Boy’s Nautical Bedroom

Nautical Boy's Room

We’re big fans of Honey & Fitz, and we were so excited to see her son’s new nautical bedroom in our gallery. Her subtle use of the theme gives cohesion to the room without screaming nautical.

DIY: Lego Tissue Box Holder

DIY Lego Tissue Box

Recently my kids have become quite the Lego enthusiasts, and it got me thinking back to my Lego days. When I was about fourteen (yes, fourteen) and my Lego playing days were over, I decided to put those old blocks to use and created a Lego tissue box holder for my recently made over bedroom. I just had my parents dig it out of my childhood closet, dusted it off and added it to my son’s nightstand. (more…)
