Best Mom Advice

1) I love The Measured Mom, have you ever checked out her site? She is a contributor here on Crystal & Co., and she shared excellent tips for teaching your children. I will be the first to admit that sometimes it can be really challenging to keep a 1 year old entertained. Especially if said one year old has four old brothers and he wants to do everything they are doing. Anna has come up with an awesome list of 5 ways to keep a one year old busy.

2) It is summer and everyone is looking for summer activities for kids. Maybe you want to make a trip to the beach, but how will you keep everyone entertained and safe? Mommie Daze pulled together an awesome list of  beach tips. Very timely! (Looks like she has an entire series going about this topic!) By the way, hate carrying your purse to the beach? She has the best solution!
