Car Seat Safety with Cars.com | TheMamaDen.com

Psst…FYI, this is a sponsored blog post for Cars.com.

All my adult life I thought the car seat went in the middle so when I was pregnant that’s where I told B to install Camille’s seat. The infant seat was in the center and the convertible seat too.

Earlier this year I went to The Mother of All Baby Showers and a car seat specialist was a speaker on the panel. One thing she said that stuck with me and I share with all Mamas “the best car seat is the one that fits your car, child and budget the best”.

Are you about to go shopping for the kids? Ask yourself these 7 questions first and save some coins! | TheMamaDen.com

Purchasing stuff for your kids can be addictive. Especially babies. Before you know it you have 47 onesies, 56 blankets, 4 mobiles, and more wall decals than you have walls. I’m not that bad but I could be if I didn’t check myself and my account at the register/check out screen. I can’t lie though, I was getting a little out of hand when I was pregnant and on bed rest.

She’s Turning 2 Already?!

by

Camille turns 2 | TheMamaDen.com

Yup, Camille will be 2 on the 20th. Where has the time gone? I know every parent must feel the same way. Camille is doing very good! She transitioned to daycare really well. Her new sleeping arrangement went well and she’s learning at such a fast pace.

Day Care – This was the biggest transition for Camille this year. She had been staying with her grandparents during the day since she was 7 weeks old. She was eager to be with other kids and burn off some energy. ┬áThe center we chose is amazing. I love the staff, curriculum, safety, everything about it. I have no regrets and nothing bad to say.

Chances are if you're a picky eater you kid is too. Click thru for some options to broaden their palate. | TheMamaDen.com

You ever wonder why your kids only want to eat the same five meals? Well yes, because your kid is a picky eater but are you a picky eating paretn? Hmmm…Let’s discuss for a moment.

I know plenty of parents have an expansive palate and their kids just don’t because toddlers are so toddlerish. But let’s look at a different angle. My mom only eats about four vegetables so growing up my brother and I ate four vegetables and they were always prepared the exact same way. When I was 14 I worked in a soul food restaurant and began eating all kinds of stuff. My mom would be so grossed out. I would come home with meatloaf, stewed tomatoes, bread pudding, rice pudding, squash, spinach and plenty more. She would never touch my food.

Do you hate Monday? Why? Check out these 10 ways you can make Monday your b***h!

Hey Y’all! So let’s talk Mondays. I know, I know, you hate Monday. But why? Because it’s back to work, school, hectic mornings and rushed dinners? Those are viable reasons but can’t we do something to make Mondays better? I think so.

A few years ago I was having a convo with my cousin about how much she absolutely hated Mondays. I get it but I don’t get it. She went on and on about how the weekend is over and it’s the busiest day at work and she’s so tired when it’s over and blah blah blah. My suggestion: find something positive about Monday and focus on that!
