Toddlers and Laptops...

...don't go very well together.

For you moms and future moms-to-be out there, you may not want to show your 3-year-old the online version of Candy Land - The Dora and Diego Edition, because they may decide that after you've already told them no, we're not playing candy land on the computer again, that they are going to climb up on the counter and try to carry the laptop to you in the family room. This could possibly go wrong when they drop the laptop on your wood floors and you get the blue screen of death every time you try to boot your computer.

It may also cause you to have to take your laptop to your IT department at work on Monday morning and waste an entire day waiting for them to rebuild it.

Just saying, it could happen.


  1. What a great blog! I love it!!! Yes, laptops and kids are not a good match at ALL! Even when they get older..they don't think!

  2. Oh no! I've made the same mistake of sharing the wonderful world of the internet with my kids using my laptop. How I avoided the "blue screen of death", I don't know. But I do cherish the very tiny sweaty footprint that I found on top of my laptop. I guess it makes a good jump base from the couch?

  3. Thank goodness you have IT department to do that - Best Buy would've charged you a lot!

    My dog (when she was a puppy) actually did the same thing year ago and luckily, my neighbor was my wonderful IT department!

  4. i'll definitely remember that! yikes!!!

  5. Note Taken!!
    I have had the blue screen of death before. It is not fun!

  6. oh no!!!! gotcha! thanks for the heads up. no laptops & toddlers :)

  7. Oh girl, I am so sorry. I can only imagine the HORROR of it hitting the floor! I recently purchased a portable DVD player to take on the plane with me next week to entertain the 2 year old. I am not even giving him a glimpse of it until we are buckled into our seats....otherwise, he'll be wanting to play with it 24/7

  8. OMG you HAVE to read my most recent post on what happened Monday night! Almost the same exact thing!! I feel your pain.....

  9. OMg - totally could see this happening with my strong willed child!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
