Author: Suzanna Kaye

Too much is overwhelming. Too many toys, activities, and clutter can add a lot of stress to a kid, but they can’t express it. It can lead to behavior problems and higher anxiety for kids.

Are You Missing Out on The Important Moments With Your Kids?

Are you missing out on the important moments with your kids?

(a thought from The 365 Project)
How much do you love just watching your kids? When they’re sleeping, while they play, when they learn something new?
Some of my favorite moments with my stepdaughter are just watching her evolve. Becoming more distinct and her own person. Laughing, trying new things, getting back up after failing and then succeeding.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of giving to show love. Seeing a toy in the store I know she’ll love. Letting her know I’m thinking of her when she’s not around by buying a pack of Pokemon cards. Getting craft supplies in the hopes of spending time together.

Creative Storage for Kids Rooms

I have a pillow that sits in my living room that reads, “Support your local wildlife, have children.” This nicely sums up that I think my children, now teens, are mostly feral. However, Suzanna Kaye, professional organizer has a super sweet awesome 7 year old, so there is still a great deal of hope at her house.

Traveling with kids is for the BRAVE. They present a whole new adventure. 

Kids come with extra details that you must absolutely pay attention to! I learned this the hard way….. Trust me when I say the story is too much for your delicate hearing. Plus if I told you we’d all need drinks and we’re trying to stay sober for this, pay attention…. Continue reading

The Toy Library Saves The Day!

Time to organize your kid’s toys? Let the Toy Library help!

We’ve all been there, that moment when you’re just sure you’ve purchased the toy of your child’s dreams! The toy they will love and cherish one day mentioning it with nostalgia when you’re both adults vacationing together someplace splendid.

With bated breath you watch as they…. Play with the box.

You glance around your house, your eyes lingering on the whimsical sign a friend got you, “Excuse the mess, we’re making memories.” It’s the battle cry of the exhausted mother that wants to be able to sleep at night without overwhelming guilt for all the stuff that lingers around the house.

Perhaps instead of giving up, you’ll give the Toy Library a go.
