Live colorfully. If you embrace it, this momlife can be a beautiful adventure. Do you ever just sit and marvel at how fun, miraculous and (at times) mind-blowing it all is? In the midst of the grind, we hope you take time to count those little fingers and toes, and thank the universe for the gift of your child. We do. XO, TeamMotherly P.S. Our toddlers love arts + crafts time at their Melissa & Doug's Standing Easel. Add a smock and drop cloth to make clean-up a breeze! Toddler this week: Good times ahead, as your toddler can follow 1-step verbal commands, for example, he stops when you say "Stop painting the walls !" (He can follow commands, but we can't promise he always will.) Try this: Try not to bark too many orders, instead focus on essential commands, especially ones around safety.
