Just in case you thought it was always clean and organized around here. #toddlerlife

And a happy thanksgiving to my American counterparts!

  1. Thank you for the link on how food affects behavior. Our big birthday party is tomorrow (12 kids ….) and that is why I clicked the link. Kind of confirmed what I knew but feel so much better with our food choices now 🙂 There will be cake but a lot of healthy finger food as well (just for other moms: I discovered that frozen peas are a big hit with almost any child aged 3-13, they love the crunch and the sweetness)

  2. Thanks for sharing the Food and Behavior post, Tsh. I really appreciate your help in getting the word out :)!

  3. Tsh, just wanted to say thanks so much for including the link to my post! I hope it resonates with the closet male readers you talked about! 🙂

  4. Thanks for posting that picture of your living room…made my life with a 2 year old and 3 year old seem so much more normal!
