What Ever Happened to Nap Time?  {Not Just Cute}
Great ideas for quiet time.

12 Tips for Gentle Weaning  {Aha!}
Suggestions for weaning.  It was fairly easy for me, although I didn’t want to say good bye to it, and I feel that “Edel” weaned herself naturally (with the help of my drying breasts…)

Calming Your Clingy Child  {Janet Lansbury via AhaParenting}
Very helpful tips!  I did like reading that I shouldn’t push my daughter onto the playground to play with other kids if she doesn’t want to.  Kinda wish someone told me that last year.  I hope that preschool drop off isn’t traumatic, for the both of us…

Encouraging Passionate Learners… Even When It’s Not Your Thing  {Simple Kids}
Amanda from Not Just Cute writes about how to support your child’s interests even if that interest repulses you.  I have so many fears that that will most likely come up one day.

My Bag of Parenting Tricks  {}
A few cool tips that I’ve never tried before, wonder if they’ll work?  Instead of yelling for your kid to come to you in a public space, get on your knee, open your arms wide and they’ll come to you?  Counting as a positive transition, to stop a behavior.  As well as making up rhymes, using a timer and order of operations.

2o Uses for Vinegar Around Your House  {Green Your Way}
Clever uses to clean with vinegar.

Pinterest favorites:
I want to share this monumental Pinterest milestone… it’s not from my blog, I just “pinned” it from someone else’s, but it’s the most repins and likes I’ve ever had!  And it’s for something that I might not even make!  And none of my own Pinterest friends liked or repinned it.

178 repins and 32 likes:  Patriotic Jello Cookies  {Munchkin Munchies}
Sugar cookies, divide the dough into thirds, and mix red jello into one and blue jello into another, leaving one plain.  Roll into balls, rolling the colored balls into the appropriate jello.

Since I’m such a list-maker, let’s list some more…
