I receive a lot of questions about Quinn’s favorite toys, so with the holidays (hey, Black Friday and Cyber Monday) on the horizon, I wanted to share what’s on his Christmas list this year as well as a few blog post round-ups of his very favorite toys. On Quinn’s Christmas list this year: PicassoTiles – Quinn already has a set of PicassoTiles (aka cheaper version of MagnaTiles), but he absolutely loves them and literally plays with them every single day, so we…

I’ve partnered with Wonderful Halos to bring you this blog post. Right now, the brand is hosting a “Good Choice Challenge” to encourage consumers to make good snacking choices by choosing Wonderful Halos over other traditional unhealthy snacks in order to lead a healthier lifestyle. With the holidays here, Wonderful Halos definitely make a delicious (and easy) option! As always, thank you for your support!  We have quite the picky eater on our hands with Quinn. Sure,…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday! What. A. Week. Holy cow, I feel like I didn’t stop moving. I ended up accomplishing quite a bit, but I’m soooo ready for a low-key evening at home tonight, complete with pajamas, preschooler cuddles, and a decent amount of WINE. And then, of course, I’m going to climb into bed as soon as Qman is asleep. Clearly, I’m planning to dominate Friday night. Haha! So, Qman has turned into quite the talkative…

I’ve partnered with Fidelity & MEFA for this post in support of the U.Fund Dreams Tour. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Quinn is ALL about arts & crafts lately. He has a little smock that he likes to wear, so anytime he’s in the mood to get crafty, he grabs it from the cabinet in his playroom and shows us that it’s time to “paint.” Well, he likes to color with crayons and…

I’ve partnered with the Hass Avocado Board to bring you today’s post. As always, thank you so much for your support!  Good morning! We’re a huge fan of smoothies in our house and drink them all the time. Qman, in particular, loves a good smoothie, and I love that I’m able to blend in so many nutrients that he might not consume otherwise. When it comes to food, he’s quite the picky eater. But, Quinn wasn’t always…

Alternate title: The Time I Drank Three Iced Coffees Before 9 AM A certain little someone turns 26 months 2 years and 2 months old today! I can’t believe how quickly the months are flying by now. In fact, they’re moving so fast, I missed last month’s Day in the Life post. Boo. Mom fail. And I almost missed this month’s post too, but I ended up documenting last Saturday morning, so it’s a little snippet into our life…

Hi, guys! A very HAPPY Monday to you! How was your weekend? (I seriously can’t believe it’s already the 2nd week of August. WHERE has summer gone!?) Overall, our weekend was really great with lots of highs and plenty of fun stuff in the mix, but it included a few lows too, which, of course, makes for the perfect High Low High post as a way to recap. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, I recap the high and low…

As you guys might remember, our family experienced a D- cross-country flight to Seattle last month. Mal and I still joke about how “scarring” it was. Toward the end of the flight, an older woman came up to us and said that she had watched our family since we boarded the plane and that Quinn reminded her so much of her oldest son. She didn’t comment on Quinn’s behavior, but instead she leaned in and said: “He’s…

Hi, guys! Earlier this week, we went to the beach with a couple of our friends for the first time this summer. We (especially Quinn) had an awesome time, so we wondered why the heck we hadn’t gone before now. I mean, hello, it’s the end of July and we live like 15 minutes from the beach. Get it together, Hauperts! I guess we didn’t go to the beach until now because we thought it was…

Before we left for our trip to Seattle, Mal and I brainstormed ideas with his Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) for how to keep him entertained on a nearly 6-hour flight and she recommended a number of apps for my iPad. We ended up downloading all of them and, thank goodness, because they saved the day on the flight home! Some of you guys mentioned upcoming summer travel with your little ones, so I wanted to share some of our favorite toddler apps! Endless…

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to pick up Quinn from daycare, I stopped to get gas for my car. As I stood there, filling up the tank, I couldn’t help but notice my surroundings. I had stopped at this particular gas station a zillion times in the past, but the seemingly insignificant details of the setting caught my attention for some reason. I felt the warm sunshine on my back, birds chirping in…

A certain little someone turns 2 years old today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, QUINN!!!), so I thought it was the perfect time to write another Day in the Life post. Although, the day that I picked to blog about (Monday) actually ended up being kind of downer. Quinn and I are feeling better today, and I figured you guys would want to see the good, the bad, and the ugly of our day, so I decided to blog about it anyway. Hey,…

Hi, friends! As you know, we love to cook with our little guy. He thinks it’s a lot of fun and we’re hoping all of his exposure to food will help him become a more adventurous eater, which is just one of many reasons why we love Blue Apron so much and why I am so excited to partner with them once again on this blog post. New to Blue Apron? Here’s what they are…

Good morning! Our little guy turns 20 months old today (where does the time go!?), so I documented one of our days last week as a way to remember this stage in his life. I really love writing these monthly Day in the Life posts because they help me remember tiny details that we might otherwise forget. With that, here’s a glimpse into life at 20 months! 6:05 AM: Mal’s alarm goes off. Ugh. I had…

Hey, hey! Last week, Mal, Quinn, and I enjoyed a wonderful family happy hour at Not Your Average Joe’s in Norwell. (FYI: A brand new location is opening in Westwood any day now!) This particular location is our local Not Your Average Joe’s, and we’ve dined there a number of times in the past, so we were especially excited to be invited for an evening out. But, of course, with a toddler, it ended up being more of an early…
