Today I wanted to share some Mama Hacks for you that are always helpful for us!
I feel like it is always a good little refresher or reminder when you see someone doing something fun with their kids on Instagram which is where I get a lot of ideas from. Especially all of my favorite influencer and friends here in San Diego. If you are local you have to go check out the Sunshine Gardens in Encinitas. It is such a cute place to play for a while. They become cultured with different vegetations plus their is fish, a tortoise, goats and more to do.
Mama Hack: Go outside! Fresh air and sunshine makes everyone a little happier. We may not go to far each day, sometimes it’s our front yard pushing a wagon or stroller around, but our favorite place to go (if we aren’t at the mall) is the beach. This is usually how we look, we aren’t in swimsuits because it’s generally a spontaneous idea. Make it a goal to step outside for 20 minutes with your kids each day! (see what wagon we use here)
Mama Hack: Have several toys around the house, in each room too. Make sure they are developmental toys, ones that will help them to learn and grow. I shared several toys on my blog that are perfect for 1 year olds as part of my weekly Mom Talk Monday series. (see post here)
Mama Hack: Create a separate “Notes” page (on the app) for each of your kids in your phone. When they hit a milestone, say something clever, cute or funny, or even make a mistake, take note of it and date it! This has always been my favorite thing to look back on and rediscover memories of the best times and the hard ones too!
