One of our favorite breakfast items are pancakes. If you ask Baby B what he wants to eat 9/10 times it's pancakes. I've been tweaking these chia oatmeal pancakes for months in an attempt to make a heartier, healthier pancake than my usual (affiliate link) Birch Benders Pancake Mix, which are super yummy but leave me hungry in a few hours.
The kids love them, especially with blueberries and they freeze well so I can make a big batch and reheat them for a quick breakfast.
Messy play is just what it sounds like: letting kids dive into something messy and play away. Messy play lets kids be creative, explore with their senses, and experiment.
Messy play can sound intimidating if you aren't a fan of messes or haven't done it before. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea but now that I am, I embrace it and encourage it. Today, I'm sharing a few tips for managing messy play, embracing the mess, and cleaning up.
My Etsy shop is live! A lot of people ask me about the sensory bins and bottles I use with the babies so I decided it would be fun to make all our learning material available to others.

I finally made a Facebook page! Check out This Twin Life on Facebook to see what we're reading, making, creating, and doing.

Head on over to Facebook to like and follow our page!
I have painted quite a bit with the babies (ugh, I need to start calling them the kids but I just can't!). However, they've always painted in their high chairs, where I can contain them and the mess. They absolutely love painting and they love to point out their paintings that are hanging in our kitchen.
I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and get messy with their painting because I knew they would enjoy it. I also wanted to see what they would create when given a bigger space to work. It was totally worth it!
