Camp Bon Coeur :: An Oasis For Heart Warriors Having children with medical needs affects you. There's always so many questions to be asked, decisions to be made. What if my child doesn't progress like other kids? What if something happens? What does their future look like? You also start questioning whether or not they’ll get to have the normal experiences of childhood most people take for granted. Summer camp is one of those experiences. Let’s backtrack a little. I have two children with heart conditions. My daughter is 9, and my son is 4. She was diagnosed as an infant and he was diagnosed in utero. They’ve both undergone surgery to alleviate their conditions and improve their lives. While those...
Some Pooch & Kid-friendly Spots In Baton Rouge My family and I just adopted a German Shepard. He, like my three human kiddos, are wild and adventurous too! I have not owned a dog since I was a little girl, so I am new to the fact there are dog-friendly and actual spots that encourage pet owners to bring their pooch! I needed to find spots for not only my three boys to hang out at but with our newest four-legged member of our family too. The Smiling Dog – We can easily bring our boys and our dog outside on the patio! Not only does this restaurant have a kids’ menu and a dog menu, but it also has great beers...
5 Items For A Successful Beach Trip With A Newborn Last year some friends shared that they took their 9 week old on a beach vacation and we thought, "are they crazy?" Well, this year, when the opportunity presented itself we decided to take a beach vacation, with our 10 week old in tow. Now we were the crazy ones.

We brought our usual creature comforts, beach items, and items for the house: play yard and portable sound machine for sleeping, extra clothes and regular baby care items. We also packed several items to make it easier to take an infant to the actual...
There are so many things to do with kids in Baton Rouge year-round! Whether you are visiting Baton Rouge with kids or you live in and around Baton Rouge year-round, there are tons of kid-friendly outings to choose from as well as swimming lessons when that warmer weather hits! It is easy raising red stick kids with a NOLA heart here in Baton Rouge! My husband and I were born and raised in New Orleans and moved to the Red Stick in Aug 2005, one week before Katrina…darn you hurricane!...but that’s a whole other story. Our original plan was to move back to NOLA in December after football season was over (my husband was a football coach), so he could join the...

A New Soccer Family

When our son, David, turned 4 we sought out ways to get him outside to engage with other kids because he was at home with us all day.  The places we frequented were our local park and the library.  David would play for a little while - sometimes with another child but he mostly enjoyed playing with his daddy.  We never saw the same children come to play at the park.  I think the lack of consistency made it hard for David to warm up to other kids in addition to being an only child. Once David turned 5 and started Kindergarten, there was information about soccer registration.  We signed him up and thought it would be a great outlet...
