Traveling with baby to Downtown Disney for the first time this weekend. How this mom prepares for one squirmy kid.
Disney this weekend! Well, actually Downtown Disney to be precise. But it is close enough and Aden won’t know the difference. We are going to try out the new restaurant, T-REX, which we have heard lots of wonderful things about. I’m a closet paleontologist so I’ll pretend that I’m twelve and get in the sandpit with the kids to dig for bones. (Yea, I do know that I don’t look anywhere near 12.)


My Eastpak Diaper Bag

Since about 1997 I have had my Eastpak bag. I have to say my book bag helped me get my education. During my college days it carried my books for class, on my hiking trips it kept my trailmix handy, when I went to the beach it held the sun screen and towels, it kept the bugs out while camping but I never thought it would hold diapers. Alas, last weekend the primary diaper bag was in my wife’s car and she had gone to get her hair cut and it looks great by the way.

Inexpensive toys that the toddlers can entertain themselves with.
Entertaining a toddler stretches the creative mind to its limits. How does one find an object that will delight and keep a nine-month old busy? I read all the parenting books and took their advice…use everyday objects. It is really amazing how an expensive shiny colorful toy will be passed up for an old wooden spoon.
