When Your Toddler Needs Glasses

This weekend is the 3 year anniversary of my son getting his glasses! I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. I still remember his first appointment with the ophthalmologist like it was yesterday. Today, his glasses are barely a thought in our daily life, but when we were told that our 1 year old would be prescribed glasses by his second birthday, it consumed me…for months. I decided to write this post to share our experience of having a toddler with glasses, and to let other parents know what to expect if they find themselves in a similar situation. I...

Autumn Tree Craft

This week’s post is an easy craft project for the little guys. I did this project last fall with my son and nephew. My son was only in pre-school two days a week last year, and I watch my nephew two days as well, so on the days that both boys were home with me, we would often have to find something quiet to work on while the baby took her morning nap. A light craft project at the dining room table usually worked. I am not great at planning projects ahead. It’s usually one of those situations where the...

Mummified Brownie Bites

I can’t believe Halloween is in a few days! There is so much that I want to post and so little time!!! This past weekend my family and I went to our good friends annual Halloween party. Halloween is their absolute favorite holiday, so they do it up every year, and they certainly don’t disappoint! I love myself a good party theme, so I can’t resist whipping up something Halloweeny to bring with us. This year I made Mummified Brownie Bites! With tots underfoot, costumes to put together, and travel to consider, I like to keep things as simple as...


Sooo…I have a blog!

Welcome to the Happily Frazzled blog!!! It has been quite a few months in the making and I am so excited to finally be hitting PUBLISH! Thank you so much to everybody that has been following on Facebook. The support through the facebook page was just the kick in the pants that I needed to stop procrastinating and start moving forward, so THANK YOU! I have been thinking about starting this blog for a while now, but it’s been one of those things that’s super fun to think about doing, and much harder to sit down, put in the work,...
