Must Read Blog Roundup #2

Not only do I write a blog, but I love reading other blogs.  Sometimes I come across something that I really want to share with you guys so I decided to put together a round up of posts that I think you'll love too.  Enjoy!

Kaitlyn from Freshly Messy wrote a post detailing why we need more awareness and promotion of the inclusion of special needs.  If you or your child have special needs, read it.  If you know someone who has special needs, read it.  If you don't know anyone who has special needs, read it anyways.  This is something that is important for everyone.

If you have kids, you've probably experienced your share of toddler tantrums (and if you haven't gotten to that stage yet...just wait).  I love the tips Amy from Making Motherhood Matter shared for dealing with the inevitable toddler tantrums.  As a mother of 4, I can vouch for their success!

Baby wipes...the swiss army knife of parenting.  I fully intend to continue buying them even after my last baby is potty trained.  I love how Veronica from Anderson Homestead gives 10 non-traditional ways to use baby wipes in her recent blog post.

Baby wipes have a ton of uses that aren't just for babies. Check out several ideas!

Jewel from Just a Mom Who Writes has a really cute series on her blog where kids draw a picture and tell a story about it.  It's adorable, and the posts always make me smile.  You can even submit your own kids' story here for the series.

I LOVE pumpkin spice creamer in my chai tea in the mornings so I was excited to see that Amanda from My Gluten Free Miami has an easy recipe to make your own.

Are you drowning in kids' artwork or do you slyly sneak it into the depths of the trash can after the kids go to bed? (I'm a sneaky thrower)  Either way, I love the ideas Stephanie from Mama Hippie has for re-purposing kids' artwork.

Children love to create artwork, whether drawing, painting, or coloring. Parents can't keep every drawing, but throwing them away seems like such a waste. Here are 5 Easy ways to reuse children's drawings and keep them out of a landfill.
