(Though you’ll still probably have a ton of them that need to go in boxes or portfolios somewhere. Or, sadly, even into the garbage… You can’t keep them all!)
I’ve used Artkive in the past with great success (here’s my Artkive review). You just mail in as many pieces of art as you want, and a few weeks later you’ll receive an absolutely gorgeous hardcover book with high-quality photos of each of the pieces. (You’ll get the art back, too, if you want.)
But you can also DIY this process by using a service like Shutterfly.
So when it comes to Artkive vs Shutterfly, which is better for making photo books of your kid’s artwork?
My daughter recently outgrew her crib and toddler bed.
She’s only 4 years old!
I was totally shocked one night to walk in and see her toes and head both nearly bumping up against their respective edges of the bed.
(We bought a Pottery Barn Larkin convertible. It started as a crib and converted into a toddler bed.)
From there, the bed needed to convert straight into a full-size bed.
So suddenly, without much warning, we needed to buy a much larger mattress.
After an absolute ton of research we ended up going with a Nectar Sleep mattress, which has been amazing and incredibly affordable, but some customer service issues left me kind of wishing we had gone another way.
I found myself wishing we had just sprung for a Casper mattress for our toddler, instead. I have owned one as an adult and they are absolutely terrific mattresses from a great company that’s a pleasure to work with.
One of the biggest decisions new parents face when they find out that they are expecting is what to name their new baby.
It’s definitely not a decision to be taken lightly, especially since your child’s name has a big influence on how others see him or her.
(Some studies claim that your name can affect your personality and even the shape of your face!)
It should come as no surprise then that people spend hours upon hours scrolling through Google search results in pursuit of the perfect name for their child. The only problem is that people spend so much time trying to find the perfect first name, that the middle name is often an afterthought.
That’s why I’ve been putting together myHow To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your son or daughter!

If you’re expecting, then you’re probably giving a lot of thought to what name you should give to your new baby.
Deciding on a name for your baby is a big deal, and a child’s name plays a very big role in her life.
(You ever meet someone whose personality just seems to fit their name perfectly?)
People spend a massive amount of time searching for the perfect name for their child. They spend so many hours on the task of finding the first name, in fact, that the middle name tends to get lost in the shuffle.
Naming your baby is a major decision, and it might just be one of the biggest you make when it comes to your new bundle of joy!
Your child’s name can play a big factor in how she thinks about herself, as well as how others see her.
No wonder people spend so much time poring over online search results; trying to find the absolute best name for their children! However, when all the time is focused on finding the perfect first name, the middle name tends to get lost in the mix.
That’s why I’ve been putting together myHow To Pick A Middle Name series. I’ve found what I think are the best options to go with any specific name you might be considering for your daughter!

When it comes to paying professionals to watch your child so that you can have the privilege of going to work…
(I’m kidding. Sort of.)
… you have a lot of different childcare options.
Babysitters / Nannies
Free options are great!
But I definitely feel like we’ve gotten a lot out of having our daughter in structured daycare and preschool environments where she’s learned how to make friends and developed speech and learning skills at lightning speed.
What actually is the difference between preschool vs daycare?
