We bought a large lidded tote that doubles as an end table in the basement play area. They can only keep what fits into the box, and they also each have three stuffies that sleep with them.

What unhealthy eating habits or cravings have you developed since becoming a mom? Please include a picture if it's relevant.

Root beer. I hated all carbonated drinks my whole life, until I was pregnant with #3. Now I actively crave it on occasion. PS Totally agree with Lynn's answer of wine. I think that's more of a "This has been an awful day and I crave something that will make me care less" than a physical craving per se, though. :)

Spring is almost here! What's an activity you love to do with your kids in the springtime? Please include a link to a picture if you have one!

We love to walk along outside, starting in our own yard, and look for signs of spring....robins, crocuses, patches of grass peeking through the remaining snow, etc. We also love to stand with our eyes shut and see if we can smell the spring air.

What's a light, Springtime meal your kids like to eat? Please share a link to your recipe.

We make a Greek-style pasta salad. Rotini, feta, tomatoes, cucumber, diced black olives, greek salad dressing. Filling and it travels really well for days that are warm enough to picnic. Another favourite is a crusty Italian loaf and cold cuts with cheese, plus a side dish of strawberries, canteloupe and grapes.
