Toddle Along Tuesday: Diaper Bag

I'm linking up with Growing up Geeky again this week for Toddle Along Tuesday. This week's topic is what's in your diaper bag. 

I have this bag by Chicco. I like it, but its also manly enough that Morgan will still carry it around. But now seeing all the cute bags everyone else is linking up, I kinda wish mine was cuter.



Diapers: Pampers Cruisers size 3 diapers, Huggies wipes, the bag's mat, and disposable scented bags for dirty diapers.



Snacks: A sippy of water, a container of puffs, and a box of raisins.


Henry's Stuff: An extra set of clothes, mittens, motion sickness medication and syringes, an extra outlet cover, disposable placemats (a total lifesaver), a bunch of small toys.




My Stuff: Wallet, pen, snack, and extra phone battery. 



And thanks to this post, my diaper bag no longer contains this:

I was wondering who would actually post the trash! I should of taken a pic of mine too. :-) My hubby still carries my girly diaper bag. He doesn't like it but I make him. Haha!

Seeing everyone's cute bags is making me want a better one, too! I also used this post as a good reason to clean all the trash out of our bag, but I didn't take a picture of it :)
Hahaha I love that you posted the trash! I had a couple receipts in mine, and a few cheerios that may or may not have been months old... ;)

Haha! I love the crumpled up receipts. I had a ton of those before I took my pictures of my diaper bag. I have seen everyone post that they pack extra clothes. I think I need to do that. I always forget to pack an extra outfit. Ah, you will never know!

This is a cute post! I have two girly diaper bags and my husband carries them all the time! haha :) I would have posted my trash too :) We ALWAYS have puffs in our diaper bag, they're a favorite around here--and a great distraction in stores, we always leave a trail.

(P.S. Great blog! I'm the one that posted for blog recs on TB!)Following you now!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2019

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2019 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me. 
This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable. 

As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help, we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps me remain fle…

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return. 

That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,
