Don't let that adorable face full of food fool you. Those are the eyes of a mischivious toddler!
The holidays can be a time of celebration and festivities. However, the months leading up to the mayhem can also cause stress and frustration for tired women attempting to be both a 1950’s housewife and mom, and a 2012 working woman.
It can be challenging to explain to other women what it is exactly that consumes your day, but the chores seem endless and the sleep never feels sound for a mom. There was a recent editorial highlighting the high bar set for moms these days, and the expectations (often unrealistic) put on women.
Whether you have chosen to work full time, part time or stay home with your little one, you are working nonetheless, often balancing many jobs at once. Women are amazing at multitasking and now-a-days are often expected to wear several hats with not only grace but precision. This pursuit of perfection can cause these “Super Moms” to feel overwhelmed by their growing to do lists, tested by their more time consuming toddlers and even defeated when their tasks are not completed by the end of the day.

Cooking (safely away from stoves and ovens) is a wonderful way to share in the holiday spirit with your little ones. Toddlers love to be helpers, so let your elves sift the sugar and flour and add a touch of spirit to your masterpiece.
If your babies are not quite ready to officially add ingredients to the meal, provide them with their own bowl of cheerios and a spatula to “assist.” You would be surprised with the concoctions your new sou chef will create and the fun you will have bonding with your baby while also feeling productive, as you check a chore off your growing holiday to do list.

Toddlers have an insatiable appetite for adventure! Many Moms with babies 12-18 months can attest that this new sense of independence and exploration can be both amazing to witness as well as anxiety provoking! While it is very important for children to have the ability to discover and learn through such expeditions, it can be quite challenging to balance baby’s search for freedom and fun, and your need to ensure their security and safety.
The American Academy of Pediatrics reminds families that “play” aids in children’s developmental growth and allows parents to strengthen the bonds with their little ones. Although tumbles are now part of a toddler’s life, parents still search for how best to support and challenge their increasingly curious kids.
Boston Babies features Boston Mom and North End Resident, Haley Cutter, who recently has been balancing this very concern. She shares her story and advice on how she is learning to roll with the punches (and the falls) that come from her son’s search for adventure!
As the mother of a very active, extremely curious 15-month boy, I recognize that my son has entered the stage of toddlerhood where falls and accidents are inevitable. Continue Reading
