The Best Potty Training Books for Kids

If you have a child of potty training age, here are six books that he or she is sure to love. Hopefully they will bring some encouragement to the process. My three year old thinks they are the best!
My daughter, Hazel, just turned three back on June 30th. If you had asked me a year ago if I thought she would be potty trained by now, I would have thought, definitely. 

But...I would be wrong. So wrong. 

Most days we don't even seem close. Other days, I get glimpses of hope. Like last week when she went for the very first time. But that has been the only time.

I never imagined that I would have a child who would be so resistant to "going on the potty", but that's my girl. Has to do things her way. In her time. 

And I am okay with that (because...I am pretty sure she gets that from me.)

Revamping my Blog & Etsy Shop!

Some of you may notice a slightly new look around here! I spontaneously got the urge to give my blog a little lovin' this week, and created a new header and sidebar graphics. I also updated my about me page...now Meet Alice with a new section of facts about me (in case you are interested ;). I incorporated my own hand drawn feathers and arrows into my blog design...you might recall from these plates? I had so much fun working on it all that I got the itch to start dabbling in graphic design again.

Gifts for Difficult to Shop for Men {and a Review}

I received the cocktail shaker featured in this post, from My 1st Years, in exchange for this review. 
All opinions are my own.*

Do you know a guy who is difficult to buy gifts for? Well, I do. That would be my husband. And not because he is picky or anything. Precisely the opposite. He is neither here nor there about gifts. Actually, he usually says he doesn't even like gifts. I can't even imagine that sort of life. I always love a present!

Well this past Father's Day, I finally got him a gift that he not only loves, but will put to good use.
