Let Your Little Chef Help You This Thanksgiving Holiday!

With so much to do to prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I was wondering how am I going to get it all done with a toddler and a newborn at home? Instead of trying to find ways to entertain my three-year old while I’m cooking, this year, I am going to let her be my little chef and join in on the Thanksgiving fun!

Here are some ways you can let your little chef (safely) help you prepare a fabulous meal this Thanksgiving holiday!

- Teach your child the importance of washing your hands before preparing a meal. Letting them wash their hands in the sink all by themselves will certainly be fun for them! Also teach your kid to wash their hands in between each dish you make, too. Playing with soap and water will be a highlight for your little one during the cooking process.

- Talk about kitchen safety with your child as you cook. Teach them never to touch the stove or oven while you are cooking, and to never touch knives or other sharp tools while preparing food.

- Prep the foods before you cook with your child. If you have the ingredients already measured out, your child can be the official food “dumper” and pour the ingredients in bowls, blenders and crock pots for you. This will save you time and will also allow you to keep things rolling in the kitchen, so you don’t have to appease a small child who doesn’t want to wait for you to cut and prep the ingredients.

- Ask your children to wash the fruits and vegetables, snap the green beans, and stir the cake batter. These tasks are easy and safe, and are also very helpful to you as you prepare the rest of your meal.

- Encourage your child to help you clean as you go. Give them the job of washing the bowls or dishes. They will see it as a game rather than a chore and you’ll have a clean kitchen by the time you are finished preparing your foods! It’s a win-win!

- If there is not enough room or things to do with the actual preparation of the food, then ask your child to make placemats, place setting cards, or table decorations for your feast! They will love making decorations for the table and for your guests. Simply provide them with the necessary supplies (crayons, paper, tape, glue, scissors, etc.) and this will keep them happily occupied while you cook away!

- Also, have your kids set the table for you while you cook. Show them an example of a place setting and see if they can replicate it for you. You can be the inspector and inspect their work! They’ll love trying to mimic the place setting you created and will also learn table-setting etiquette that they can put into practice all year long.

Hopefully these tips will help keep your Thanksgiving holiday a little more. Happy Thanksgiving from Pure and Honest Kids!

Also, check out these fabulous aprons and smocks for your little chefs! They'll feel like the "real deal" with these adorable, perfectly sized aprons for kids, available at Pure and Honest Kids!

Help! Is My Child is Over-Scheduled?

I have been wondering lately, "Is my child over-scheduled?" Granted, she LOVES being busy. And there isn’t an activity out there that she doesn’t want to try. However, some weeks I feel like we are running from event to event, activity to activity, and it makes me wonder, are we over-scheduling our daughter? And if so, how do we determine what stays in the schedule and what goes?
Here are some good tips I found while researching over-scheduled child.

Signs You May Be Over-Scheduling Your Child:
- Your child tells you they don’t want to go do a special activity or practice repeatedly. They either may not like it as much you as think they do or they would rather have more time at home.

- You feel like your life is too hectic. If you are feeling that way, then your child is probably feeling that way, too.

- If you don’t see many blank days on the calendar, you may be over-scheduling yourself and your children. It is important to have “do nothing” days, or as we call them, “choose your own adventure” days.

- You find your vocabulary mainly consists of “hurry,” “let’s go,” and "come one, we are going to be late again.”

- Your child cannot figure out how to play alone during unscheduled free time.

Remember that over-scheduling distracts parents from what you are ultimately trying to create: a peaceful, loving home that makes you and your children happy.

If you have a few minutes, check out this article from It is entitled, “When Kids Have Too Much To Do, They May Need Time to Do Nothing.” It is a very informative and thought-provoking article.

What To Do About Potty Regression After a New Baby Arrives

My daughter was 99 percent potty trained this past summer, and with a new baby on the way, we were ecstatic at the thought that only one of them would be in diapers! Well, that unfortunately has not been the case. Our daughter has now totally regressed in her potty training now that her baby brother is two months old.

I've read that this is common for older siblings to regress in potty training once the new baby arrives. However, I was certain it would not happen to us, as Taylor was doing so well using the potty. Boy, was I wrong!

I decided to do a little research to find some tips on how to deal with regression- there is a lot of good information out there on the topic. Hopefully what I have found will help others out there that may be experiencing the same thing!

First off, what causes potty regression? The answer is simple: stress! Your oldest child may be feeling emotionally charged about the arrival of a new baby as it takes attention away from him or her. Refusing to go to the potty or asking to be “changed” may be your child’s way of regaining some control of the new situation and refocusing the attention back on them.

Once regression begins to happen, it is important to talk to your toddler about how much you love them and how the new baby is not taking his or her place. It is also important to make time for your oldest child and do special things with them. This may mean some of the household chores go by the wayside for a while, but making your preschooler feel loved and secure is much more important.

Here are some tips on how to deal with potty regression.

- When you get frustrated about the potty regression, it’s time to take a step away from training. Try revisiting training in a few days when you are calmer about it. Your toddler will sense your frustration and this will continue to make them regress.

- Make it a completely positive experience rather than a negative one. Use potty charts and reward stickers, potty treats, or lots of love, hugs and praise. Do not use negative reinforcement or try to discipline your child when accidents happen. Frustration and negativity displayed during potty training and regression will only create more obstacles.

- Allow your toddler to be your “big helper” when it comes to the new baby. The more you allow your child to be a part of the new baby’s routine, the more they will get used to the idea that the baby is here to stay and they will learn to adjust to sharing mom and dad. And once your child begins to feel less threatened, he or she will feel less stressed and hopefully get back on track with potty training.

- Use the words “big girl/big boy,” “big helper,” and “big sister/big brother” as often as possible. Making your toddler feel like a big girl or boy will make them strive to live up to the moniker and want to do big girl/big boy things, such as use the potty.

- Minimize the amount of talk you use while cleaning up accidents. Be matter-of-fact, and simply say, “Pee and poo poo go in the potty, not in your underwear.” Do not harp on the accident and do not belittle your child.

- If your child continues to experience potty training regression after several months and you continue to feel frustrated, contact your pediatrician for further advice. Sometimes it takes a fresh perspective to help you with this trying time.
