Toddler Time – Dragons, Snakes and Pirates- OH MY!

For the past 2 weeks, our little girl has woken up in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason. It always comes at about 3 am- and she always asks to sleep in Mommy and Daddy’s bed for the rest of the night.

I’m not really sure what causes these mid-night wake ups. This is a totally new trend for her. She used to sleep through the entire night (Yes, I know I’m very lucky!) Sometimes, when she wakes up though, she says things like “The snake bit me!” or “The dragon bit me!” or “The pirates, Mommy- the PIRATES!”. I have no idea where 2 of these 3 nightmares comes from though. First, she’s never seen a real snake. And I’m pretty sure she’s never seen a real dragon. Also- she’s never seen a snake or dragon even in a book or show or movie (though I know where the pirates come from…which became obvious when she said “AND CAPTAIN HOOK!” one night).

Besides cutting “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” out of the rotation of weekend treats, I’m not sure what to do about her nightmares. Since I have no idea where they’re coming from, it’s not as simple as skipping a certain book or a certain TV show. Its odd to me that she somehow 1) knows about snakes and dragons and 2) has enough of a knowledge of them to know that they’re scary things, and yet I don’t know where she was exposed to them. I’m not even sure removing these things is the right way to handle the situation, even if I knew how to remove them. I just tell her that there are no snakes in our house and that there’s no such thing as dragons and Mommy and Daddy will always keep her safe. It seems early though, for her to be having nightmares.

Is this the average age that these things start to happen? What were your kids afraid of at 2 years old?

Travel Tuesday – The Long Haul

I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about traveling with little ones. And yet one fact escaped me, one very important fact that could change the face of travel with an infant forever. Something that has the potential to make it ENJOYABLE… What is this wonder, you ask? The airplane BASSINET!

A friend of mine just booked a multi-leg, multi-country vacation. And coming along for the ride is his infant son.  In chatting about the trip, he mentioned: “Yeah, I was excited that we were able to secure one of the airplane bassinets”. HOLD ON, I said, Back that up.  Did you you say, “Airplane Bassinets”? What does that even mean?

Apparently- on some long-distance flights, airlines offer bassinets in front of the bulkhead seating. It would have to be a super long distance flight (think international, not domestic), because these bassinets are only offered on certain types of aircraft.  Which, being the domestic travel diva that I am, is probably why this fact escaped me. But this revelation totally blew my mind. And after Googling to find out what these bassinets look like, I’m even more impressed.  They’re pretty sturdy looking! No longer will I feel limited to domestic travel only with baby… with the possibility of a bassinet for international travel, the world is now our playground! (Ok maybe not our playground– but certainly more accessible than before!)

Have you traveled with a baby in an airplane bassinet? Were they as amazing as they appear to be? Please share your experience!

Fashion Friday – Mommy Hair

I LOVED what pregnancy did to my hair. I had traditionally kept my hair pretty short, but the influx of hormones did something when I was pregnant that made my hair grow really fast and look super healthy (I hear that the prenatal vitamins helped as well!) I heard about the postpartum hair loss that occurs for most mommies after pregnancy, and I was lucky enough to avoid that for the 9 months that I was breastfeeding (another benefit!), but once Harper self-weaned, it happened. And I spent the next 6 months wearing a ponytail. And even after that, I ended up chopping it all off, which resulted in the “Mommy haircut” that so many of my friends before had adopted after baby.

There are lots of benefits to short hair, the first of course is that its faster. The biggest issue I had with my hair when it was long was the time it took to dry it. And next was Harper’s tendency to wrap it around her little fist and pull. (Ouch!) I imagine that these are the top two reasons that Mommies have for deciding to go short.

Despite all those benefits though, there’s just something really youthful looking about long hair, which makes me want to regrow mine. Mommies- did you cut your hair after baby? Did you end up regrowing it? What were the reasons you had for cutting or keeping your locks?
