Hand cream

The hubs and I just went to Whole Foods and checked out a bunch of hand creams.  He was in dire need of some.   Yes, seriously!  We really liked some of the pure shea butter options but then came across this neat little brand - Alaffia.  I'm impressed with their sustainability and empowerment platforms.

Weekend Getaway

Pismo Beach is a great weekend getaway.  Just about three hours away from LA.  We stayed at the Sea Gypsy Motel and had a great room.  Window opens out to the ocean.

Clek makes the best car seats!  The hubs found this online a while ago and now we've seen quite a few people with them.  It sure makes carpooling so much easier.  Just click it in and done!  None of that crazy winding seats belts around the back, pulling, tugging, etc...And look at how cushy the top head part is. Wish we had two of these.

Lou & Grey

Wow!  It's been a while since I've posted.  When it rains it pours and I've got several projects in the works, as well as, our school is putting together its upcoming annual Elves' Faire and there's a lot reliant on the parent body for this so every spare moment is spent crafting!

It takes a village

Last weekend was a busy weekend here at the Casa.  For the past month, we've had a friend staying with us in our spare bedroom.  She was one of D's previous teachers and it's been great.

This past weekend, said friend had a friend in town staying with us.

The Influence of Friends

Since we started Kindy this year, we've had to pack a lunch for the babe.  At first, it was a bit of a challenge trying to come up with lunch ideas.  But then I think I've gotten in a sort of  a rhythm.  Waldorf early education is based on rhythms in the classroom, rhythms throughout the days, weeks, seasons, I figured, why not create a lunch rhythm and basically make the same lunches each day.

Little Miss Temper x2

Last night, the hubs chuckled about something as he was thinking back to a previous day's play date.  I asked what he was chuckling about.

He told this story - The other day at play date, he was hanging out on the couch watching the girls play.  D comes by and happens to accidentally hit his foot that was hanging over the couch and it tripped her.  Well, she got really mad and hit his foot and screamed, "Dad!!!  You tripped me!!" fighting back tears.
