Adjusting to 3!

Adjusting to life as a mom of 3 has not been easy for me. I remember reading a blog post from a particularly popular blogger saying it was no big deal and not hard to adjust to 3 and feeling like a big.fat.failure! Parenting looks different on everyone and while I have my bearings now and have grown to love and cherish my 3 ring circus – it still is never easy! Here’s a few of my unsolicited tips for transitioning to more kids! One thing I’ve learned to let go of is making everything from scratch for my kids to … Read more

project juice

By Nicole. It’s been awhile since I updated you all on the behind the scenes of my life! I’ve been spending a lot of weekends this Summer in San Diego visiting someone special! (Small Fry edit: Nicole is coy, but he’s more than someone special, and we knew when Nicole was crying happy tears with no sad ones that we’d be his biggest fan!) It’s been so fun but a lot of vacation time is rough on the bod, ya know? Eating out three meals a day, even if you are making healthy choices, is a struggle. So when I … Read more

Three At Home

By Emily. If you remember from my New Baby Favorites post a couple weeks ago I told you I’d update you about Raleigh’s jaundice situation! Finally had time to write it all down and gladly can also finally say his coloring is looking amazing and I think we might be in the clear, but also confirmed something I suspected since Hayes was born! Since the Baby Nés system ended up being essential to our situation, I’m happy to show just how cool it is while I spin my lengthy tale…So first the backstory: when Hayes was born the nurses let me know … Read more

Similac: Fruit & PB Toast

Today is our last post with Similac Go & Grow and we are sad to see it end! We love having food recipes here on Small Fry, we’ll have to be better about keeping it going in the future! There isn’t a kid in the world who won’t eat toast and getting creative with bread is all the rage so why not add some Similac Go & Grow to it to help amp up those nutrition facts and because it’s flavorless it’s no problem! There isn’t much of a recipe here except to add the Go & Grow packet to whatever … Read more

whole wheat pancakes

Whole Grain Pancake Mix

Lisa Samuel is a full-time mama and non-practicing Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. She writes about marriage, motherhood, food, travel and design on her blog, Simmstown. Whole Grain Pancake Mix As a new mama, breakfast seems to be the hardest meal of the day to prepare. There’s so much going on in the morning, I joke that I should rename breakfast “things on toast.” Egg, avocado, almond butter…But sometimes, especially on the weekend, I crave a real breakfast, and pancakes have always been a favorite. If you like fluffy pancakes with crispy edges and a tender center, you will love these! It … Read more

First Forty Days

I have had this book recommended to me several times since being pregnant and so I am so happy to have them here sharing their tips for nurturing your post-partum self. They open the conversation about important the first 40 days are. I know of so many cultures that truly take care of the mother like you would the newborn. I don’t know if its just the culture here, or maybe a pressure I put on myself but it seems like life just goes on when you have a baby and I love all this book’s concepts of truly taking … Read more

overnight oats

By Emily. This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own.  I am now to the stage of pregnancy where sleep is futile. So I usually wake up like a zombie and am scrambling to get myself together on top of trying to get the kids ready for school. Hayes actually had to have a heart to heart with me about wearing pants and shoes to the bus drop off. Ha! I turned to overnight oats because I wake up starving and rarely have time to get a satisfying morning meal for myself! Overnight Oats … Read more

Berry Yoghurt Quinoa

As much as we emphasize whole nutrition and challenging your children to eat healthy, we also know how HARD it can be on us moms to get all the nutrition our children need to grow strong!
