Fashion // Layered Up

Navy and spring and comfy, oh my! I'm basically wearing a lot of favorite, comfortable basics all at once.

I love a good pile of layers in the winter time, but our weather has been wacky here lately! 30 degree nights followed by 65 degree days has me layering up in the morning, but ready for sandals and spring by noon. This outfit is a good compromise, because I paired spring colors with warm layers to give myself the best of both worlds. Some of these jewels are from Rocksbox.

I love navy all year long, but this sweater from J. Jill's New Easy Collection has me swooning. It's comfortable and looks good, while being great quality. I'm realizing more and more how important quality pieces are, especially basics that can be worn often. J. Jill is giving one of you a $100 gift card to shop for your own great pieces!

Second Child and Baby Proofing

Nothing makes for a better life lesson than some good experience. I learned that the hard way this week. 

You see, since we moved into this house with a 2 year old, I didn't think baby proofing needed to be done, unless we had a third someday down the road. 

I was wrong. 

I was in the middle of the of "Mom, I'm not so tired" and "you still have to stay in your bed" nap time drama that happens here nearly every day. I would quit the naps for the protesting now 3 year old if I didn't think he needed them, but man, he does. And once he actually falls asleep, he can sleep 2-3 hours. So he needs it. 

He finally got quiet, which typically means he's asleep. I was watching Bravo while folding laundry, which seems to be my nap time routine at least a few times a week. I had the monitor on, I was being a good mom, y'all.  

Fast forward an hour and he was up. The first thing he said to me was, "I put that circle black thing in my mouth." I had him take me around until he showed me the door stopper, which was missing the rubber tip that goes on the end. I used to think those things were pretty small, until I started freaking that he actually swallowed it and wondering if it would come through. In case you're wondering, they're 1/2" in diameter. My mind raced to ER's and scopes, ultrasounds and a screaming bloody murder 3 year old. None of which sounded good. He was breathing fine and ate fine, and everyone I checked with thought it would pass. 

So we waited. And I did one of the things you never imagine having to do pre-kids...digging through poop. Toddler on antibiotic poop, mind you. 8 poops and 4 days later, I finally hit the jackpot. 

There it was, in all its rubber tip glory, still in one piece in his diaper. (Yes, I know he needs to potty train. Someone come teach him along with what is acceptable to eat.)

Lesson learned that the second child will terrorize your home. He will get into everything and do the most crazy stuff you never saw from child #1. Get ready for it. 

My advice for you? Why don't you just take those stoppers off, put those suckers in a ziplock and hold on to them until that second born starts college.
