It will all be worth it, right?

Well, the first edition of The Hungry Toddler Hop wasn’t exactly the raging success I had hoped for, but fear not, food-challenged toddler moms…I will not be deterred!

We linked up with 4 great kid-friendly recipes this time around, and my goal is to double that number for next time! I’m hoping you’ll scour through your collection of favorites, and share with us during the next link-up on August 5th!

(I can’t share all the details yet, but I have a project in the works that should drive a little more traffic and lots more fun to the HTH, so don’t miss it! 😉 )

So, in other news, we were supposed to close on our new house by July 17th. Well, today is the 22nd and no word yet. My fridge stash is dwindling and we’re tripping over boxes at every turn – It’s a little frustrating to say the least. Actually, it’s a LOT frustrating since my realtor just called to tell us he wants to show our current home at 2pm tomorrow! Since the hubs and I are both working overtime, the house is…less than perfect.

I’m working all day today and leave for work at 4am tomorrow, so I have 2 choices:

1) Skip going to bed tonight and spend the night getting the house remotely show-able


2) Leave it all up to my husband and toddler.

There’s a really queasy feeling in my stomach right now. :(

So, as you would probably guess, blog-worthy food and domestic pursuits are pretty rare during this stretch of madness, as is finding the time to even type a sentence or two. So, party on, bloggy friends, and I’ll be back to join you just as soon as possible!

(Sooner than later, I’m hoping…)


Until then, I need your moving tips! Have you ever moved with a toddler in tow? Do you have any tips on keeping your routine intact, or just general tips on making the transition easier? I’d love to hear them!

    Congrats on your new house! I hope they get to closing soon. :) Are you moving quite a distance? If so, I recommend frequent rest breaks for the little one. Pull off at a rest stop, ice cream shoppe, restaurant or similar spot and let him run off some energy. Moving around the corner? I suggest getting someone to babysit while you do the moving. LOL

    Good luck!! We’ll miss ya.

      Nope, not too far. About 20 miles from where we are now. My mom is already on top of things, offering to take him during the bulk of the actual move. You two think alike! :) Thanks for your suggestions!
