It’s been a week since I last posted and I am SO sorry. Remember how I said summer is a crazy time? I wasn’t wrong! It’s even busier than I thought it would be. This is my first summer with a toddler. I thought the baby stage was hard, but I didn’t know anything back then. If this is your first summer with a baby or toddler, check out this post for help. Or this one. Or even this one for the really hard days. It will get better, I promise.
My family just got back from a super fun mini vacay in Port Townsend, Washington. It is so pretty over there and I love the “old” feel it has. We did some shopping and my daughter spent about a half hour picking out the perfect stuffed animal. It turned out to be a white cat, which isn’t so white anymore. Thank goodness for thieves cleaner. If you’re a momma, you need this cleaner. It’s all natural, safe around kids, and cleans just about any surface. Anyway, we also stopped at a tea and spice store where I purchased… You guessed it! Chai. I got a type called “Mint-Chilla Chai-Nilla” from The Spice and Tea Exchange. I am in LOVE. Want to make your own? First, check out this post. Then, brew some vanilla chai and add a drop of peppermint. For extra punch, throw in some cinnamon powder. Yum! I also purchased some Victorian Rose soap from another little shop down the way. It smells delish! I haven’t gotten to making my own soap yet, but if I ever do, you guys will be the first to know.
I totally forgot to bring my bottle of lavender with me, which was a mistake. My daughter took at least three times as long to get to sleep. She wouldn’t nap at all during the day and night time was the hardest. Won’t be forgetting that again! Luckily we didn’t get a sunburn, or we would have been SOL.
Have you and your family taken a vacation this summer? Or do you have one planned? Tell me about it in the comments!
