I think the phrase, “juggling with kids” accurately describes parenthood. I know that I frequently feel like I am juggling SO much at one time (my job/career, housekeeping, cooking, etc) … and right by my side (or sometimes my arms!) are two lovely beings that have to also watch/love/care for/adore/nurture. Sometimes they even attempt to “help” me juggle … which can make the task even more … interesting/messy/crazy/wonderful!
Therefore, this week I’m featuring the ABCs of Juggling with Kids … where Akane shares how she juggles with kids. It appears they have a lot of creative fun over there whilst juggling! Some of my favorite posts are the Soda Bottle Lantern (we are definitely going to be trying that out!), their Mind Jar, and the super cute Butterfly Snacks! Make sure to go check out her blog!
