Mommy-Mode . Home Toddler-mode Natural Parenting Happy Home Printables Miami Local About Contact “What I Wish I Had Known Before I Had Kids” May 25, 2013 By Bianca A Pinterest find! Thank you Charmed Valerie for sharing this clipping from the from the March 2012 issue of Dallas Child. Filed Under: Happy Home, Toddler-mode Tagged With: conscious parenting Conscious Parenting May 25, 2013 By Bianca Hi. My name is Bianca… and I yell. A lot. You see, I have a two-year old. A sweet, loving and adorable two-year old. But boy, oh boy can he push my buttons. Like today, for example, when he screamed at the very top of his lungs while we were out having a nice dinner at a restaurant full of patrons. Or when he refused to go to sleep this evening, a battle that lasted two hours. Or the hundred thousand times he didn’t listen to me the first, second or third time I told him to do something (or not do something). Raising a two-year old can be exhausting! It can feel overwhelming. And most days, I have no clue what I’m doing. What I do know is that I want him to feel safe with me and to know that he can confide in me, I want to model compassion and I want, above all, for him to know that I love him very, very much and that my love is not conditional upon anything. I also know that I feel bad after I yell at him or smack his behind or when I leave him alone in his room while he cries for me. I know I don’t want to do those things, especially because I know they come from me losing my patience and not me doing what I think is best for helping him to overcome whatever challenge he’s facing at that moment. This inner conflict is what has brought me to books, articles and blog posts about conscious parenting. I’m learning a little more each day and finally even beginning to be able to put what I’m learning into practice. It hasn’t been easy, but I know that every step I take towards parenting intentionally, instead of just reacting, is a step in the right direction. “Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” -Rumi Here are some great resources: Aha!

Filed Under: Happy Home, Toddler-mode New Zoo Play Dates for Zoo Miami Members March 9, 2013 By Bianca I love our zoo. The open-air aviary allows you to walk amongst over 300 rare and exotic birds. The giraffe feeding station puts you eye-to-eye with the cutest animals ever to walk this earth. The playground and splash pads give you a break from the walking while your little ones play. But my very favorite thing about Zoo Miami are the cage-free exhibits. No cold bars there! The animals are kept in their habitats by deep canals that line the boundaries. This unique design allows for unobstructed views, happier animals and a better atmosphere overall. If you haven’t been to Zoo Miami yet, you must visit this beautiful, one-of-a-kind zoo. And if you are local and don’t yet have an annual pass, you’re missing out! Besides unlimited admission, Zoo Miami member benefits include discounts on food and gift shop purchases, Safari Cycle rentals, free or discounted admission at participating zoos nationwide and invitations to special, members only events. The zoo recently started a new “members only” play date series especially for those of us who have children ages two through five. The play dates are designed to get families together so local parents can meet one another and so the kiddos can socialize and make new friends while learning about the animals. A typical play date includes hands-on programs, animal encounters, story-time, meeting the Zoo Squad and yummy snacks provided by Happy Family Brands (and bagels and coffee for the adults). These play dates take place before the zoo opens and each play date group is limited in size so everyone can really get to know one another. We went to one of the play dates in February and are hoping to check out another one tomorrow. I’ll post all about both play dates in the next day or so! The next play date with available space is scheduled for March 17th. Starting in April, play dates will take place once a month. Remember, space is limited and you must RSVP to attend! Want to learn more? “Like” Zoo Miami’s Facebook page for updates. Hope to see you at the zoo! A special thank you to the Happy Family Brands who help make the Zoo Miami play dates possible!

Almost immediately, I came across the 3 Day Potty Training technique by Lora Jensen. A bit skeptical, I searched the web for reviews and found that most people had a lot of success with her method… so I bit. I bought the eBook that she offers on her website and read through it that same night. She is very encouraging and has a way of getting you pumped and believing that THIS WILL HAPPEN! The next day, I bought stickers, a few Hot Wheels and three packs of little boy underwear, all decked out in cartoon characters. We began the potty-training on Friday. On Day 1, he had several accidents (maybe 7?), but seemed to take to the potty really well. He wasn’t afraid of it or uncomfortable at all and he really liked his new fancy underpants. And to my surprise, he had no accidents overnight! He woke around midnight and let me know he had to go. Day 2 went a little better than Day 1, but not by much. Truth be told, I was a little disappointed. He would go back and forth to the bathroom signing “potty”, but refusing to sit down and go. I started to show my frustration and he responded by avoiding the bathroom altogether. Fortunately, babies (er… toddlers) are forgiving and the next day we started fresh. Day 3 went much better than Day 2, with just 2 accidents. We still hadn’t ventured out of the house yet, per Lora’s suggestion, but I felt up for the challenge after Day 3. Now, was he totally potty-trained in three days? I don’t really know what that means… Yes, he was aware of when he had to go potty and he let me know so I could take him by the time those three days were up (he caught on to that the very first day), but he still had a couple of accidents on Day 4 and one on Day 5 (today). However, today went really well with a trip to the park and a long trip to the grocery store. No accidents while we were out, he braved a public bathroom and when he signed “potty” while I was driving home from the store, he held it for a good 5 minutes until we got home. Go Eli! Overall, I absolutely recommend Lora’s eBook. I love that she is encouraging and that her method is positive, but mostly I really appreciate the mentoring she offers. Once you purchase the eBook, you can send her any questions that you may have or describe difficulties that you or your child are having, and she gets back to you within 24-hours with solid advice. And for the record, I am not being paid nor have received any incentive to write this post. I genuinely believe her method works and certainly appreciate that my diaper changing (and washing) days are done! Now how to get over the fact that my fluff addiction must come to an end… and that my little guy is, clearly, no longer a baby. *sniffle, sniffle* Filed Under: Toddler-mode Tagged With: potty training; 3 day potty training Homemade Christmas Gift: Vanilla Extract December 1, 2012 By Bianca December 1st… Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? If you’re looking for a useful and well-presented, yet inexpensive gift for neighbors, teachers, friends and family, look no further! Making vanilla extract at home is super easy and much less expensive than buying it at the grocery store, plus you can play around with the recipe by using different types of vanilla beans or with burbon as a base, instead of vodka, and you can package it up as pretty as you like. Makes: 16 Jars of Homemade Vanilla Extract Cost: $6.50 each (Note: Your cost can vary greatly, depending on the quality of the vodka and vanilla beans, the jars you choose, the deals you find… but this is an approximate cost based on the vendors I bought from and the type of vodka I went with.) Supplies (adjust count as needed): Approx. 50 vanilla beans 3- 750ml bottles of vodka (or burbon) 16- 6 0z jars with lids (or corks) funnel measuring cup sharp paring knife cutting board decorative twine packing tape (to secure cork if shipping) Instructions: Wash jars and let air-dry. Cut 48 vanilla beans in half cross-wise. Then, leaving one end connected, cut length-wise down each piece. Put 6 segments (equal to 3 whole beans) in each jar. Using a funnel, fill each jar with approximately 4-ounces of vodka. This is not a science, so don’t worry if you have more or less vodka in the jar. Cork the jars, decorate with twine and a festive tag… and voila! Pretty, practical and inexpensive! Note: The vanilla is ready to be used once it turns a nice golden-brown color, which takes about 2-3 months. Since I didn’t think to make these three months in advance, I just put instructions on the tag letting the recipient know that the vanilla will be ready to enjoy around Valentine’s Day. Also, as you use up the extract, just pour a little more vodka in to replenish it. You can throw a bean or two in there as you go; I’ve been using my vanilla extract for over a year and have only had to add one bean so far. I just depends on how quickly you use extract. Having everything all within arms reach will make the process go by much more quickly! I love these jars from! The style is called Figi Clear Glass Corked Bottles and they hold 6 ounces. I bought these on Amazon and was very happy with the quality! They were fresh, moist and smelled divine! Is the quality of vodka important when making vanilla extract? I’ve heard yes and no, so I went with what was on sale! I probably wouldn’t go with the cheapest liquor, but definitely not the most expensive either. When cutting the vanilla beans lengthwise, leave one end connected. Using a measuring cup and a funnel will make this step quick and easy! Vanilla extract perfection. Remember to save one for yourself!

You will soon have way too much candy sitting around your house, tempting you every second of every day to EAT IT ALL UP! Beat the temptation and show our troops some love by participating in Operation Gratitude’s Halloween Candy Give-Back program. Operation Gratitude is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages to troops stationed in hostile environments, to those wounded and to children who have lost a parent while serving our country. Operation Gratitude sends out over 100,000 care packages each year, bringing familiar snacks and letters of appreciation to our service members and their families at times when they need comforted most. Interested in helping? There are three ways you can help: 1. Spread the word! I’m sure more people would participate in this program if only they knew about it. 2. Mail in your leftover candy. Better yet… 3. Start your own drive and collect leftover candy from your friends and neighbors to mail to Operation Gratitude. This is a wonderful way to give back and to teach your kids about the troops who serve our country. Maybe they’d even want to send a little card or letter of appreciation along with the candy. Help out with a good cause, provide an excellent learning opportunity for the kiddos and free yourself from the guilt of many late-night candy raids! The address and details of the candy give-back program can be found here, under section 3a. More tips and useful information can be found on the Operation Gratitude blog here. Candy must be sent in prior to December 1st.

Certainly, this couldn’t be more accurate for a first-time mom of a toddler. Today I learned about turtles. And that they carry salmonella. And that little kids, especially those under 5 years old, should not LICK them. Ok, so my kid didn’t really lick the turtle, but he may as well have. He reached out, ever so gingerly (which is not like him, just ask our cat) and touched the turtle’s head. The turtle retracted his head back into his shell, but not before Eli had his fingers nestled back into his mouth where they reside 85% of the time (the other 15% of the time they are gripped tight around our poor kitty). So I watch this happen; I think it’s cute even, how the turtle pops his head back in. And then I wonder, “Don’t turtles carry salmonella? Or was that lizards? Or am I totally making this up?” MOMMY FAIL! He had already all but licked the turtle and now he’s probably going to have salmonella. Or something. Once we get back home, I look it up and sure enough the CDC warns about children under 5 handling turtles because they most likely carry salmonella. Great. So today I learned that yes, turtles do carry salmonella. Lucky for us, it looks like Eli escaped getting salmonella this time. I guess we’ll know for sure tomorrow. Note to self: Do NOT let your kid lick a turtle. Ew. Filed Under: Toddler-mode Next Page? Welcome! After entering my own form of mommy-mode nearly two years ago, I have been feeling a like I need to force myself to think and speak like an adult again. When I clapped and said, "Yay!" in response to the dental assistant calling me in... I knew I had a problem. When I realized that the only grown-up books I've read in nearly two years have all been related to babies and raising children... I knew I had problem. I needed an outlet, one that might force me to sharpen my saw and reconnect with myself. And so a blog was born... one dedicated to, well, motherhood of course! Whether you're expecting your first baby or you're a seasoned mother of five, I hope you find moral support within these pages and some useful information along the way. Welcome to mommy-mode!
